I stayed at Bakersfield South because I have come to trust what I can expect from a La Quinta facility and I was not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable with all of the amenities I might have expected (like a writing area). Excellent value as well.

Another road trip with the three whippets, we always stay at La Quinta's due to their great free pet policy. This location is one of the older examples in the chain. While the room was huge, clean and perfectly acceptable for the money, the location does need a renovation soon. The grounds were a bit littered but the room itself...

The property was in an area where we did not feel safe. The staff was pleasant & helpful. The room was ok, just outdated. We would not stay here again. We would not recommend this hotel. Not a good property if you are traveling with a small dog.
