the hotel has very good location to freeways and restaurants. It is very close to the major freeways through Bakersfield. The La Quinta is a bit run down but still a good value for California area. Its near a Costco, and several fast food places.

I always stay a La Quinta where I travel. If I am working in Los Angeles as an example, I stay at the Costa Mesa location and use it as a base for sometimes 4 days. You rates are fair and the rooms are great with a flat screen tv. I try to stay at the locations where I can... More

Older building; took a while to find lobby entrance from parking area when first arrived. No complaints. Like that it's pet-friendly, with large field nextdoor for extra extra walking/running area for dog.

The Staff here was great. The elevator was broken. The were burn marks on the tub in our Non-Smoking room. A red stain on the carpet that we were hoping was from spilled wine. Not a great part of town.

Hotel is in an economically depressed and crime-ridden neighborhood. Room furnishings, flooring, bedding, and bathroom facilities are severely worn. Hotel does have private security services, and staff exhibit a modest level of friendliness and concern for guest comfort and welfare.

I would defiantly say my experience with your hotel was AMAZING!! The way the staff welcomed us as a military family was really UNEXPECTED. I was amazed with the discount for being a military member and how the staff accommodated us after being on the road for over 6 hours was a pleasant surprise. This is our new family hotel... More

Poor service to me - they knew more than 2 people would be in room and never added towels and such for this. Then we had to go to get them ourselves since no one could bring them to our room. Bathroom tile needs good cleaning and general cleanliness okay, but not what expected. A bit disappointing, may try if... More

Very clean, well managed , 5 star, and a place our family would stay again. View was beautiful and easy freeway access. Many breakfast choices and staff knowledgeable of the surrounding restaurants, attractions, and local businesses .

Always a pleasant stay at this LaQuinta location in Bakersfield, CA. Close to five eating places within walking distance. Good for single travelers, I felt safe. Very clean accommodations. Front office people helpful.

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
