This was a stop over location on the drive heading to Vegas. Very helpful staff, very clean room. It was great to be able to use the gym and pool. It is directly opposite Denny's, Starbucks and other food outlets. Very handy location. Definitely recommend if looking to stay in Bakersfield.

we only stayed one night here, but the staff was helpful and friendly. they have laundry service and you can do your own, which we did because at this point we needed to a week into our California trip! Rooms were spacey and they had a pool! and standard breakfast. They accommodate pets and apparently there are smoking rooms when available. They really do try to cater to all!

"Kitty is Comfortable Here"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 17, 2014

I have stayed at this La Quinta Inn 4 or 5 times now on my travels between northern and southern California. It is clean, quiet and the front desk staff is very helpful. Most important to me, I feel safe here, even on the ground floor. They do accommodate pets. When I make a reservation, I always let them know I am traveling with my 14-year-old kitty. Once we get into the room, she seems very comfortable here. The rooms are big enough so there is plenty of room for her food/water bowls and litter box. There is also a refrigerator so her food stays safe. I really appreciate that the beds are on frames that preclude pets from going under the bed! That makes it so much easier to pick her up & put her in carrier when it is time to check out and resume our journey. One time, I had to request another room due to a room problem they did not know about. They were very gracious and quickly moved me to a better room. Occasionally, I have heard a dog barking in another room, but it is not so loud that I cannot sleep. I also like their free breakfast! The property is located closer to Hwy 99 than Hwy 5. But I like it so much that I take the time to get there from Hwy 5. You can walk to Denny?s or Starbucks from the hotel & there are other eateries within short driving distance. I definitely will continue to stay here when I drive Hwy 5 between the northern & southern parts of California.

Wasn't too excited about staying in Bakersfield, but wow, this place made it so much nicer! Very clean, beds were very comfortable, very quiet, friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was typical for this kind of motel.
