“Great motel for me and my dog”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

I routinely stay at this motel because it is clean, convenient and the staff is always very friendly and professional. Many improvements have been made inside and outside this year. The restaurant next door reopened and new service station and fast food stores will be opening soon. A large truck stop with several fast food restaurants is very close by. The rooms are older but very clean with refrigerators, microwave, coffee pot, ironing board and free wifi to name a few perks. The grounds are well maintained and clean thanks to many dog owners cleaning up after their four legged companions! This is one of my favorite places to rest during my travels!

Typical motel. I paid $82 with AAA.

Pros: Clean. Restaurant and bar attached open until 11PM. Pool.

Cons: Analog TV
Promised Wi-fi does not work. Manager promised he would fix soon, so you may have better luck.

We reserved our room a month and a half ago - standard rooms didn't look the best but there King Bath Suite seemed ok. We got there and the front desk gave us keys to a room that I felt they knew wasn't right. The standard room was musty, dirty, smelly and just disgusting!! When questioned about the room we reserved, the General Manager Ismail Khan, made excuses as to how they gave in to someone else. We reserved it online and got a good price but I am sure they received more @ last minute so they just gave it to the highest bidder. Ruining our family vacation plans. Thanks Ismail!! The whole hotel is totally run down and to put it lightly, a total dump. We found a different hotel to stay @, Thank God. To put icing on the cake , when I called to tell Ismail we found somewhere else to stay, he had the balls to says he would not charge me a cancellation fee. Wow!!! How noble of you Ismail, after you gave away our reserved room and left us scrambling. Like he was doing me a favor and I should be appreciative. If anyone is looking for a super nice, clean, great layout, workout room, over the top complimentary breakfast, spotless pool and super friendly staff - stay @ Fairfield Inn in Tehachapi. Please do not bother La Quinta, you will be very very disappointed!!!

We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the room and bathroom. The added security of a locked hallway access was a nice surprise. After a long day on the road we enjoyed a very good nights rest. We would highly reccomend it to anyone.

I would have given it a 1 out of 5 except the room was decent (although the bathroom needed to be cleaned better) and fairly good size. The Internet did not work and they blamed the provider yet the one computer in the lobby was connected to it. The first person at the front desk blamed the provider. There were several firefighters there for an extended period and one wanted to communicate with his young children but was unable to due to the Internet. Later we find out it was the hotels equipment. The breakfast was much like an earlier review with the broken waffle maker, lack of fresh fruit, etc. the milk was served in an albertson's gallon jug and they ran out only an hour into breakfast. Since only one person was there he had to wait a half an hour to run to the store. Parking lot in the morning was littered with beer cans, trash, and even a dead, bluejay that appeared to be there for awhile. On top of that they charge our friends $129 for a king suite that the bathroom lights and fan had a motion device and kept coming on during the night. It spooked them, but there were no signs of rodents setting. It off. The only hotel of the three we stayed on I would not recommend. Much better places in town or a short drive to Bakersfield. Also the restroom near the lobby was dirty without toilet paper.

The newly opened restaurant next door had very great food and excellent service. Not super organized but that was fine as the service and food was awesome!

The service at this hotel was excellent. I hghly recommend it. They were great about accomodating me with a non-smoking room. The staff was very knowledgeable about the area and readily shared information about it. Checking in and out was efficient and quick. The bedrooms and bathrooms were sparkling clean, the surrounding area was clean of any debri. It had a brand new look! I regret not being able to stay longer to enjoy the cool pool, but I had to work then next day and we had to be on our way. First time we stayed at a La Quinta and definitely will be one of our favorites!
