I would like to commend your front desk person Sara. She gave us a great recommendation for a place to eat, efficiently updated my Points profile and was extraordinarily helpful in meeting a last minute requests from me.

The property was in an area where we did not feel safe. The staff was pleasant & helpful. The room was ok, just outdated. We would not stay here again. We would not recommend this hotel. Not a good property if you are traveling with a small dog.

the place is run down, old furniture, dated bathroom, room needs to be totally updated. The fresh start breakfast wasn't much of a start. However the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating.

The room was not clean, dirt all over carpet, urine on the toilet, drink rings on the nightstand. Coffee pot in room was missing the coffee basket, so it was totally useless. Breakfast was the worse we have had in any hotel in the past 7 years.This place is run-down and I would never stay here again.

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
