La Quinta Inn Bakersfield South

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Asked for a quiet room and the young man changed it for us.

The rooms are a great size for sharing with a co worker, fridge and micro always cleaned

Security should try working the parking and property instead of hanging inside the building ... during our stay the ice machine was stolen.

close to main hwy. The breakfast options were terrible, not like others we have stayed.Poorr mixture for waffles and that was the only options, no rolls, no various fruits, only I kind of milk stale slice bread and no butter or jelly,etc

It's nice and simple. Just what we needed for a quick stop and go. Clean and comfortable.

I arrived late in the evening and just wanted to get checked in and get into my room and into my bed. However, after buzzing about 3 different times, I received no response. I became frustrated and went around to the side to look in and when I came back to the front Sara was standing there nonchalantly waving me inside. I pulled the door to show her it was locked and she came and let me in. She asked how I was doing and I said Frustrated. Well, she proceeded to treat me with such kindness that I couldn't remain frustrated. She was super duper nice and my frustration melted away. I went down in the morning to apologize for my brash attitude, but I could not find her. Perhaps, she will read this review.

In searching for a hotel I had several options but decided that a brand name one was best. I didn't have extremely high expectations and as very surprised. This la Quinta was more then I expected. Nothing amazing or anything but it more then serviced its purpose.

Front office staff not very helpful at all tried to request printing out a one page email which they refused. Said they did not offer that service. They didn't offer any services except breakfast

I am not sure how this hotel received a 3 star rating. We have stayed at similar 3 star hotels in the same area with the same rate or much lower. The staff dressed appropriately, are more professional, with great attitude and a lot more accommodating, no matter what time of day.

Hotel was clean, quiet, comfortable bed. Good Mexican Restaurant next door. Easy on/off hwy access

Just an overnight stay heading back to L.A. Everything was fine - the room, personnel friendliness, breakfast, location, etc.

the room was exposed to the exterior in a not-very nice neighborhood (difficult to predict if you never been to the city), and the same happened to all the amenities. rooms were in theory non-smoking, but actually not.

The recent stay at Bakersfield's south location was a nice and relaxed get away. The hotel staff was professional & courteous. The room was clean and tidy. Breakfast was ample and delicious. Grounds were well kept and quiet. Overall, a pleasant 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.

Breakfast, pool, fridge, coffee/tea, clean room w good air conditioning, great price compared to others around central/southern CA

We stayed here to rest overnight during a long road trip. The beds are very comfortable. The breakfast is convenient. Easy access on and off highway 99

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.

This hotel was perfect for our stay. I found the location very good, price was reasonable, staff was fine, and overall experience was pleasant. I will definitely stay there again.

Have been here for a night but the experience was really comfortable and nice. Can do little better on the breakfast menu but overall value for money

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