I watched movies all night with my love thanks to their TVs not being dumb. See full review

very nice stay

The hotel room was clean, one of the stairwells needed some attention, cigarette butts and trash, not too excessive. Lite breakfast bar in the lounge, watered down orange juice but very nice staff and kept clean. Couple of items that needed attention in the room were taken care of quickly and professionally. Nice location in Bakersfield, I would stay there again.

Don't stay here

This is the worst hotel I have stayed at in recent memory. The neighborhood is NOT nice. There is what seems like a residential motel across the street. There were two roaches roaming the walkway outside our hotel door. There is actually a sign on the gate to the pool stating the people who have had diarrhea in the past two weeks may not use the pool (which is locked in any case). The bedding seemed clean enough, but the bathroom and rugs are definitely in need of attention (or outright replacement). Apparently there is another La Quinta across town that is much nicer, and you should definitely check that one out before coming here. Yuck.

OK Hotel

Hotel accommodations were OK. Not the best La Quinta by far. Area is only so-so, but convenient to freeway and commercial areas.

Bakersfield Trip

The hotel is certainly not top of the line, but I found it clean and quiet. It is located in an area very close to restaurants and easy access to the freeway. They offer a free breakfast, not a full line menu but plenty of food for a meal. Parking is easy, well lit, and the pool area was also very nice.

There is nothing. It stinks in this town. My wife almost died from an asthma attack.
