For the price it was a great hotel. Mostly clean, comfy bed and quiet property. The shower curtain was pretty dingy and right before we left I saw a cockroach run across the floor but it was a ground level room so I guess it's not completely unavoidable. It didn't strike me as a buggy hotel so maybe just stay... More

I was having to look last minute for a place to stay for 2 days since I was stuck in Bakersfield without anyplace to stay.I have stayed at this location before and was given a much needed ADA accessible room without any question nor qualm. Great services by counter staff and by the night security officer

Dateline: Thursday night, June 23 close to 11 pm, after driving 8 hours on the road. Check-in was a breeze and I got the type of room I wanted. However, the condition of the room nor what was crawling on the sheets was most certainly NOT what I requested. In addition, the strong stench of urine and alcohol in the... More

We were on our way to Yosemite and stayed overnight at Bakersfield. The hotel was very clean and the room was a reasonable size with the usual facilities; tea etc. and there was a decent sized table and chairs. The beds were comfortable and the area was fairly quiet apart from occasional ambulances going to the nearby hospital. In the... More

My husband and I (and our kitty) stayed here one night on our cross country move from California to Arkansas. The room was so comfortable, clean and modern. The bed and linens were amazing. Every detail of the room was functional and spotless. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Breakfast was very good with lots of choices. The rate for... More

For so many years I've made my stop over at another hotel in Bakersfield and wanted to try something different. My only requirement was that it was cheap, easy on and off freeway, clean and had a comfortable bed. I paid only $7 more for this hotel than my previous place. This hotel had a king bed (vs. queen), newer... More

We stayed at a La Quinta in Livermore CA purely by accident and were very pleased with almost everything about it. Very nice room, large, good view and an elevator. Breakfast had eggs and sausage all this at a very reasonable price. We moved to the La Quinta we are now staying, its an older building but still offers good... More

Going from Southern Arizona to Northern California, this is a good place to stop and get a comfortable nights sleep in good/clean surroundings. I would recommend this La Qunita to anyone looking for a convenient/comfortable accommodation.

this place was dirty, unsafe and the staff was rude. The ice machines were extremely dirty. The bath tub was slippery as if oil was in the bottom of it. The phone did not work. The room stinked like stale cigarets.
