Like the previous reviewer, we spent the night in Tulare as it the midway point of our trip. Upon arrival, the check-in experience was fast and efficient. The only hiccup was that we were upgraded and was not told. It was an upgrade so no worries there.
The hotel was nicely maintained. The room (double queen) was good, though I would have liked a lounging chair or sofa to kickback on instead of the desk chair or bed. The bed was comfortable. The pillows were on a bit of the small side. The bathroom was good-sized and had a fan vent (Over 75% of the hotels I've stayed at do not have that feature, even three-star hotels and above). The WiFi was fast. I don't know if that was because of the service itself or there weren't many guests spending the night and taking up bandwidth.
Along with the usual continental breakfast served at La Quintas, this property served bacon and eggs. There was a juice dispenser with three options but only one option was filled (orange). The breakfast area was kept clean.
The hotel is located along the 99 freeway, but the noise did not bother us at all. The hotel was in the major "shopping" district of town, so there were many choices for shopping and grabbing a bite to eat. A steakhouse, McDonald's and Popeye's occupy the same cul-de-sac with the hotel.
This stay was such a good experience that we have decided that this will be our hotel of choice when we stopover on our drives from SoCal to the north.
