“Two La Quinta's In Bakersfield - PICK THIS ONE!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

We drove by the South first and kept on driving......
The North property is in a VERY well lit, seeming safe area.

Our arrival was VERY late (2.30am) and VERY full property. Our room was available and the front desk had everything prepared so with a quick signature, I had a key!!

As other have said, it's a pet friendly hotel and NO indication of ANY pet problem with the room.
I'm VERY allergic and would have been sneezing all night - nothing. Ahhhhhh.....

Next morning was a great surprise with a hot breakfast and well prepared food area.

All in all, very nice. If you're passing thru Bakersfield, this is a good choice.

My wife and I stopped over for a night here on our way to Southern California. Since my wife was pregnant and is extremely allergic to pets, I was concerned that she might have had an issue with this pet friendly hotel. I called beforehand to express my concerns. The agent on the phone and the person checking us in were both very helpful and professional at working to meet our needs. Even when we checked in the lady at the front desk informed us that they had put us on the third floor (pets usually stay on the 1st), but that it was too close to the glass door that separates the smoking from non-smoking rooms, so she re-assigned us a room farthest away from the smoking room, which we both greatly appreciated.

The king bed we slept on was absolutely amazing, and had a pillow top mattress. The bathroom was nice and clean and looked pretty new. In fact, the entire hotel felt clean and new which we both liked. We didn't get a chance to enjoy the pool, but an indoor pool sounded like such a good idea given that it was 108 degrees outside!

The breakfast also exceeded our expectations as along with the traditional continental items, there was also bacon, eggs, and sausage.

We both enjoyed our stay, and we felt that we received such good customer service from the staff, and a clean hotel that it exceeded our expectations.

I had just packed up my house and driven 4 hours towing a trailer with a barking dog. When I arrived, I was exhausted. The staff was warm, welcoming, informed, and supportive. I love that the hotel is pet-friendly, yet you'd never know pets stay there unless you see them because the rooms (which are very nice) are so clean and fresh. When I travel the I 5 corridor, I ALWAYS stay at La Quinta. I get quality service at a great value every time. Love La Quinta!

We stayed one night and had a very pleasant experience. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was better than most with a nice selection. I would definitely stay here again.

This room was very nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We travel with a small dog, so we compare pet accommodations. This one did not offer bags or a designated pet area which helps keep the grounds clean when hotels do. The room was clean, roomy, and comfortable. It was easy to get to on and off of Hwy 99, but still quiet. The breakfast was good for a hotel continental breakfast. The variety was good.

We booked a King suite with sleeper sofa for one night on our way up north. For the cost it was not worth. The sofa was in horrible condition, didn't have extra blankets. When asked for, the front staff never came back. Though It was clean and the breakfast was good, felt overpriced for the room size and amenities.

We were four tired and sweaty people having just driven through the Mojave Desert. This hotel was a wonderful respite. Check in was quick, the room was clean, and the beds were very comfortable. The pool and hot tub were clean and allowed the kids to wear themselves out. Breakfast included a nice selection of eggs, meats, waffles, oatmeal, and cereal. The staff was helpful and friendly. We would certainly stay here again.
