The room was nicely appointed with a comfy bed. However, for some reason there were an abundance of flies in the upstairs hallway and even several in the room. Had no idea we'd need a fly swatter. Also the toilet ran all night and the key would not work on one of the side doors to the parking lot even though they made several new ones for us. I was going to report the leaky toilet upon check out, but waited five minutes and no sign of a desk clerk. So only minor problems but not great service at the desk.

This hotel is wonderful. Very friendly staff, clean rooms, parking lot well lit. Starbucks across the parking lot, as well as a Denney's.

However, do NOT stay at the LaQuinta Inn on Riverside Drive in Bakersfield, CA. Observed two drug transactions take place while getting my luggage out of my vehicle. Someone had posted a sign on a tree next to the hotel saying "HELP ME!!! "Security" door to hallway could be opened by merely pushing on the door. Door to suite (not room) could be opened by merely pressing on the door. Immediately checked out of this hotel and went to the La Quinta Inn on Spectrum Parkway in Bakersfield, CA.

Immediately felt SAFE and SECURE when I pulled into the parking lot, so you can imagine how wonderful the entire experience was with the hotel and room! Always stay at the LaQuinta Inn on Spectrum Parkway when traveling through Bakersfield, CA

Easy to find, just off freeway. Cordial, competent staff. Large, clean, well-appointed room. And, we had our beagle, which they welcomed!
