“Clean, well-maintained room for fair price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

This place was clean and maintained well. The room we had even had a recliner. Breakfast was free and included options of: waffles, cereal, hard boiled eggs, fruit, toast juices. The rate was reasonable as well. My only complaint was the time it takes to get through to a live person on the phone.

LaQuinta is always a nice place to stay, and this location is no exception. This is a ideal route to travel (going past Edwards AFB) and avoiding LA traffic. Several restaurants near by but the best thing is Cosco gas a block and half away.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

I have stayed at and reviewed this hotel before and had very few concerns, this visit was quite different. The hotel grounds had lots of homeless teens wandering around. They need ground security!!! We even witnessed a homeless couple emptying an ice machine into a black garbage bad. The pool was full of kids about 30 that weren't staying at hotel. We were afraid to go into pool area because of drunken men making comments to my female family members. It was 108 that day and my grandchildren were very disappointed. This hotel has gone way down since my last visit and I will never stay here again.

Room Tip: Very scary hotel to stay at. If your are alone or female drive a little further to Tehachapi, La Qui...

We like staying here as our little dog is welcomed and it is near one of our favorite dining places, J's Place. We called as we were traveling and arrived early and only had to wait for about a half hour for a room to be cleaned.... Definitely will be staying here again as it is on our route between home and family.

We had a nice room over the office part of the front building. Quiet and a good size (large). Went to the pool because it was hot. Nice pool in a good spot. Would recommend this Inn to others because it is a good value. We would definitely stay there again.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Requested a disabled room with a refrigerator. When we arrived, I was told there was no record of my request. Then the TV didn't work. The whole place was just OK and as one other reviewer noted, it needs some cosmetic work. On a positive note, the bed and pillows were good and our bill was reduced when we expressed our frustrations the next morning. I probably would stay in the nicer,newer La Quinta farther north on 99 next time.
