“Quiet night by the freeway”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

Quiet hotel on the side of 99. Okay room, nothing great, but better than staying at a less expensive chain. Pool area small, but attractive. No gym. Free wifi and flat screen tvs in rooms. Standard breakfast with the make yourself waffles and prepackaged muffins. Rooms were clean but nothing special.

We stayed here on our way from Sacramento to San Diego. Not much along 5 on this stretch besides Motel 6's and the like. So we went a little inland and chose this inn alongside the 99. Then you can take the 99 back to the 5. Suited our purpose and we paid a fair price through hotwire.

We stayed here for a couple of reasons. One was close to freeway (US 99) and the allow dogs. They also have a great breakfast. The rooms are well acquainted with king bed, microwave, refrigerator, HD TV and free Wi-Fi. The beds are very comfortable and friendly staff made our stay very pleasant.

Overall, I wasn't totally impressed. The motel is old and it shows by not having many recepticles, old door handles, old faucets and a scary elevator that jumps when it starts and stops. Also the pool heater was broken. I really wasn't impressed.

We enjoyed our stay very much. It was close to good food. The room was clean and remodeled and had a good breakfast. We had o drive about ten to fifteen minutes to enjoy the Square Dance Festival we drove to Bakersfield for. We will do it again.

We have stayed at this La Quinta many times over the years while visiting Bakersfield. It's our choice because they are one of a few very that are pet friendly and centrally located. We won't stay here again. From the moment we got there, it was nothing but problems. Each issue was met with the same response...they aren't responsible because we booked through a third party. There was no refrigerator or microwave in the room, which was extremely inconvenient. During the day, it seems okay but that changes once it gets dark. My husband didn't want me taking our dog out by myself. The only plus is no extra fee for your dog.
