It would be good advice to stay away from this property until their remodeling project is completed. Our story is long and complicated so suffice it to say we had so many problems with the room that we were eventually given a king mini suite and not charged for it. The grounds are nice, the amenities are adequate for a Travelodge. They do allow dogs in some of the rooms which is great and there are plenty of spots to let your dogs do their duty. The property is near the train tracks but well insulated and we never heard a single train. The restaurant next door serves a good steak according to our friends who also stayed here. Location is at one end of town, but since there's not much in Tehachapi anyhow you aren't missing any excitement. I'd love to rant and rave about the awful things that happened to us here but since they did FINALLY upgrade us to a nice room and paid our bill I"ll refrain from complaining and just give the warning to wait till renovation is complete before you decide to stay here.

We pre-booked rooms in January for July and were not told they were in the process of renovating. There was painting done on the second floor and the bathroom vanity was new but the tub and toilet were still old. The hallways were dirty with construction debris. Many rooms down the hall from us had open doors with made-up beds but seemed to be in the process of being renovated - although we saw no workers during our stay. A bit creepy walking down hallways with doors open and no people. Some hallways, like the ones to the outside pool, were very old. Also, the room numbers were stuck on the wall outside the door and kept falling off. Only packaged muffins and coffee for breakfast.

I would bypass this motel until renovations are completed - which could be some time.

We were travelling with our son & family with a large pet Rottweiler and needed two rooms for one night Christmas week. We called Best Western first, but the desk people were disinterested, not sure about the dog and referred us to their older property across the street. So, we called Travelodge who booked the two rooms, didn't charge us for the dog, and upgraded us to a minisuite. This is not a luxury facility, but very clean with very acommodating, friendly desk clerks. We went to the next door lounge where there was very good live music and obviously locals at the bar. All in all I would say it was a thoroughly enjoyable stay (and their Jacuzzi was REALLY hot.)

Hotel is a bit basic and thematic, decent pool, OK for a one-night stop. No laundy facility (despite it being advertised) and only 1 local restaurant, so you have to drive to everything as it is on the motorway, and NOT in the middle of towne as advertised. There are 3 other properties that look newer in the middle of towne that should be visited instead probably.

We stayed here in June for one night on our way East on a 'road trip'. We found it clean, comfortable and the staff were friendly and obliging. I would recommend it for value for money in a very scenic location!

We stayed here on our way from Las Vegas to Yosemite. The bedroom was comfortable and clean. The hotel is close to Highway 58. The pool was very good, situated in a pretty garden. The adjacent restaurant was good for breakfast and there were several restaurants in the town itself. We would recommend the Chinese buffet. There is an excellent bakery along the road (Kohnen's German Bakery) where they make very good sandwiches for lunch. We watched trains in the Tehachapi loop (look it up on the internet). Wonderful.

lovely town to visit....especially if you are interested in trains and the loop...this motel was clean,spacious friendly staff....quite location, even though there was a club next door, heard no noise coming from there....we tried the best western first but they had the attitude that they couldnt care less if we stayed or went elsewhere....would love to spend more time in the town
