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.

I've been to many LaQuinta hotels and this one is not worthy of the name. Our room was terrible, the air conditioner did not work correctly, the toilet wouldn't flush, the people that worked there aren't nice, and the breakfast there was not up to par for a LaQuinta. This experience was so bad I probably will not go back... More

La Quinta is my favorite hotel chain, because they are reasonably priced, offer breakfast and free Wi-Fi and allow dogs. As I am often traveling to dog shows, that's the main thing I am looking for. This hotel is much less expensive than the newer La Quinta in Northern Bakersfield. And rightly so, as it is older and not in... More

I stay here twice a year for an event at Famoso and have always had a good experience, the staff knows we are here for the race and always treat us good, it is as though they look forward to us coming back.

Needed pet friendly and was close to our office. It's in a bad area that is dirty and noisy. The room smell ed old and musty, but was clean. Walls are paper thin. I wouldn't stay again and should have paid more to have stayed at a better place.

We stay at LaQuinta hotels with great frequency because we travel with our dogs. This was definitely one of the better properties for dogs because there are numerous grassy patches around the hotel plus a large grass field behind the hotel. Unfortunately this property suffers from deferred maintenance - the fixtures are old and need replacement. Staff was fabulous though... More

This was a very nice hotel although older but quite nice. The people were very nice especially the lady who took care of the breakfast. Would stay again It is close to the Crystal Palace and shopping.

We usually stay at La Quinta Inn and Suites because they are mid-priced, clean, with darn good beds, free wi-fi and complimentary breakfast. This hotel measured up in every way. I had a pleasant stay, and the bed was so comfy, I overslept :)
