“Slow Wi-Fi, no soap dish, broken ironing board”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

The Wi-Fi, which is free, worked OK until about 9 p.m. when apparently several other people at the motel began using it. Then it was very, very, slow.
There is no soap dish in the shower, so you have to put your soap and shampoo on the floor.
There was an ironing board and iron in the room but the board was broken and unusable.
They don't want you to take coffee out of the breakfast area so they don't provide tops to the cups.
The same person owns three motels right in a row; this is the lowest and cheapest brand.
The motel is a favorite of workmen; the parking lot was full of work trucks.
The woman at reception did not ask how our stay was when we checked out; she just took the key without saying anything.
The motel is a couple of miles from the main highway.

Tehachapi is one of our favorite weekend getaways, and Best Western is our preferred hotel chain. The Mountain Inn is a great value and is clean and quiet. Our only complaint is the beds are too firm and lower quality.

The hotel itself is really good. We were across from the laundry which was convenient for us. We did have to ask for extra towels and wash clothes as there was only one wash clothe in the room. The lady up front questioned something like, "Just how many people are in your room?" to which we replied, "there are four of us and we all need WASH CLOTHS!" I ended up leaving a gift I bought in a nice box sitting on the air vent. Of course it wasn't found. I didn't expect it to be. (maids prob took it home). It certainly wouldn't have been thrown in the trash. I should have paid more attention when packing up the room before departure so that is my fault.

Decent motel. Good, comfortable bed, but had thin, well-used towels. Noisy when other people turned on their shower. Several trains during the night, but they waited until they were on the outskirts of town before sounding their horns. There were 12 families in Model A Fords in our group. Since it had been very hot this day, and was supposed to be hot the next, we all decided to leave around 5:30 a.m.. Breakfast is usually ready at 6:00, but the motel had everything set up by 5:00, without our requesting it. They went an, extra mile to make our stay a nice one. That was special. I'd stay there again.

After being moved to a room that actually gets wifi AND doesn't reek of smoke, I am quite pleased. Super spacious room with plenty of work-space on the west side.
I originally got an itty bitty matchbox on the east side with zero wifi. There's about 14 INCHES between the fridge and the bed. If they rearranged the furni maybe it'd feel more spacious. Maybe.
Otherwise, it looks like they recently remodeled.
If you need wifi, you need to be close to the office/on the west side.

I got an itty bitty matchbox for a queen room. There's about 14 INCHES between the fridge and the bed. If they moved the furni maybe it'd feel more spacious.
Maybe.
For business travelers, there's no workspace: no desk, no easily moveable chair, no wifi in this room, either.
Otherwise, it looks like they recently remodeled.

Peeled back the sheets on the bed and found blood and black hair on sheets. Called and had maid put fresh sheets on the bed. Asked for a pet room and cat urine odor was bad in the room. Will never stay there again.
