Clean and convenient; complimentary breakfast sufficient; staff pleasant and helpful. It's a worthy stop on the road to elsewhere. Bed comfortable, facilities adequate, and parking plentiful. Room amenities were limited, so bring your own shampoo, shower cap, and bath gel...otherwise, you can get by okay...but...

I have been staying at the La Quinta Tehachapi CA because it is the closest hotel to the glider port at Mountain Valley, and because it has always been neat, clean, economical and their included breakfast is better than many. My last stay, Thursday night 11-17-2016 added a powerful incentive to stay there again. I needed to return to the...

We were on our annual road trip down the west coast and always look forward to Tehachapi. Last January (2016), the La Quinta was wonderful, the night clerk making sure everyone was warm as a lot of people waited out the plowing of the highway from the snowstorm.This January (our 6th stay at this location) we had a reserved for...

The best one can say here is average, maybe less than average. First off, be aware that major railroad traffic is just across the street. We did not find that the railroad sound bothered us very much. We run the a/c fan on constant run anyway for white noise as well as air circulation, so there is sound all the...

Sad place. Needs major overhaul. Bathtub is disgusting (room 105). A plastic non-skid lining is coming loose and there are permanent stains. Otherwise it's just an old, tired room. Floors are not carpeted but wood -- which is OK with me because I think it can be cleaner. Breakfast was sub-par. Bananas very old. Bed was comfortable and clean. The...

We travel with a pet so . . . this hotel is at the bottom of the list of places to stay. Rundown , shoddy and minimal value. This is a convenient stop between AZ and CA. If there were other viable choices we would go elsewhere.

I should have known that with the train tracks just a stones throw from La Quinta that I was not going to get a good night's sleep. The room was ok but at least once an hour a freight train would rumble by sounding a lot like a hurricane.

We arrived more than 2 hours before check-in, and they said they would call when our room was ready. They called in less than 20 minutes: very much appreciated.

Standard La Quinta hotel, consistent with the franchise offerings. Location has convenient access to the highway and close proximity to services. Rooms were average and WiFi a bit slow but otherwise a good value for the rate paid. Would stay here again if driving to Vegas.
