This is an older somewhat rambling motel, much larger than it appears from the street. It has been kept in pretty good condition and the staff are friendly and the breakfast good. Children are welcome and appear to enjoy the staff. Nice pool and out door area. Rooms are clean and TV is easy to use.

This is a nice motel, in a good area of Bakersfield. Some areas are sketchy. There are several good restaurants around this area. The rooms are clean, and the staff is friendly.The location is convenient from highways.

Budget hotel located by highway 99...easy off and on. Located near eateries. Lots of onsite parking. Pls have tongs in the breakfast area to get muffins. Air condition blows directly to the bed beside it...not very comfortable.

I have stayed in this hotel many times over the past year, and always enjoy the friendliness of the staff, the beds, not having to forage for breakfast...just everything that makes La Quinta...well...La Quinta! It's true, the area of town isn't the best, but frankly, most others in the hotel are out of town workers at a project in Bakersfield.... More

In the past I have stayed here and had very mixed reviews. This time I was pleasantly surprised. They now have security and there aren't any homeless people wandering around. Very pleasant counter help and nice rooms. Since this is a dog friendly motel I would suggest to the company to replace carpet with laminate flooring. Much more sanitary. Many... More

Although a bit dated, this hotel works well for us. We have a pet and the pet friendly nature is very positive. The breakfast could be better but overall it is a stop we make twice a year. Only downside is the WiFi is VERY SLOW and frequently you have to be "very patient" to get work/planning done. What makes... More

This is an older hotel, the kind where the doors open to an outside hallway. I stayed there with my dog while attending a dog show. It served the purpose, was clean and is a good dog hotel - big field adjacent for dog walking. Negatives are location - kind of sketchy. However, I felt very safe walking my dog... More

I often star at La Quinta's so when I heard that the school I work for was planning to stay at La Quinta on a tour I was happy. However I think this La Qunita lets the rest of the chain down. The front desk was unprepared for our arrival. One of the rooms we were given smelled of new... More

I would stay here again . The breakfast isn't all that . There are some restaurants with in walking distance for breakfast . Gas stations are almost in the same parking lot and the freeway entrance north and south are a stones throw away . For a busy intersection , it's fairly quiet in the room . It's a clean... More

The king size bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was great. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing that I think they could improve on is the cleanliness of the bathroom. The tub needed a little more scrubbing.
