Our error to stay at this La Quinta. Third floor room, very spartan amenities. Mattress was saggy and worn out. Silverfish and bugs running in bathroom. Breakfast was OK, at least it satisfied the kids. One obscure elevator.

Room next door party. Breakfast is terrible. To cheap to have real coffee or eggs. Someone threw-up right in front of our door. Very hard to get in and out of the drive off the main street. We have stayed here a number of times in the past but don't think we will stay here any more.

This must be what it feels like to live in poverty! Booked a regular room, they registered us into a smoking room on the ground floor. Was tired from travelling, and just took the room, bad choice! They painted over the bathtub and it was peeling, cigarette burns on top of the tub, the carpet was old and very dirty,...

Room was okay and the price was reasonable. This is one of the older style La Quinta but it was clean and in a center of hotel and restuarants so everything was close by. Breakfast had a little bit of everything and was well stocked.

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 The room was ok, just outdated.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.
