I stay in a pet room because I travel with a pet sometimes, and my cat was very comfortable here. If he's happy, I'm happy. I like the location, too. I've stayed at LaQuintas all over Southern California, and in the summer Tehachapi is cool and pleasant, not like Barstow or Bakersfield. Staff here was super friendly and courteous. Breakfast...

We have stayed at this hotel 3 times now and have always enjoyed our stay. Friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms, continental style breakfast, nicely landscaped grounds. We had a Suite room which had a small sink and counter top in addition to the refrigerator and microwave. It also had a small couch. Dogs are welcome too and we always bring... More

Stayed here one night as we were returning home from a trip to WA. This was our second visit to this particular La Quinta and we found it to be just as good as our first visit. We were able to hear quite a bit of train noise but once asleep it wasn't enough to disturb us. Since there's really... More

We have been shooting a feature film all over Kern county and landed at the La Quinta for about a week. Not only was the staff polite, professional and punctual, but the entire crew of 36 people were very happy with their entire stay! Spacious clean rooms and an adjacent restaurant which served us breakfast each morning, and sometimes even... More

This property is located on the east end of town. Two story building with inside hallways. Pretty basic place with nothing really outstanding to say about it. Breakfast is available in a small room next to the lobby. There is a restaurant next to it but we didn't go there. We asked for extra towels but never got them. Air... More

We really like this La Quinta. Breakfast is pretty good with gravy and fresh biscuits and even had watermelon. Very Pet friendly- they have a pet friendly wing which is important to us. Lots of green lawn also for the pets, and there is a resaurant next door which isn't bad. It was quiet and restful as well.

We tried to check in 3 times on July 5th, and were told to come back. There was only 1 really rude girl working at the check in desk, which surprised me because of the holiday weekend. She kept complaining how over stressed she was. Finally we got checked in, and the room did not have any towels in it,... More

It a clean and comfortable stay. Convenient location off the freeway and next to gas stations. The hot portion of the breakfast wasn't all that great but there was fresh fruit, bagels and cereal so it was ok.

There is a restaurant next door plus a gas station. The railroad and the hwy are right next to La Quinta but still quiet enough to get some shut eye so I would stay here again if needed. Parking was no issue- the room was clean. There was a coffee maker in the room which is always great. friendly staff.... More
