Had to stop at the last minute due to the weather and was able to get a room quickly. Pets are welcome so that was a big plus. Room was nice and clean, although the bed was uncomfortable. Friendly staff and overall a nice hotel. Big selection for breakfast was a plus, refrigerator and microwave in the room also. I...

Stayed here because I had a funeral to attend in town. Staff was okay, but seemed nervous around the owner who was on site. Room was okay, but could have been so much better with a little attention to detail. I'll explain: although we were glad to see a refrigerator and microwave we were disappointed to find they were not...

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...

had a micro, refrigerator, pool, spa etc. Even evening cookies with coffee, tea etc. Nice town too, clean fresh air. I had my dog and bird with us, and they were welcome too. Also had a pet area outside with clean up bags too.

Like I said on the survey, staff was friendly, need some updates and general plumbing. Change from carpet to tile, could help keep the rooms easier to clean. Jacuzzi tub needed updated plumbing. The HBO did never work in the room. The truckers parked sideways taking up extra spaces and more handicap needed for parking. Tripped over edging material around...

La Quinta Tehachapi is poorly is managed, I do not recommend staying at this location. The staff was rude and entrance is blocked by other buildings. Do yourselves a favor and drive to Bakersfield instead.

We've stayed at this facility twice before and never had a problem. Things have changed. We were assigned a room that hadn't been cleaned yet.

On a positive note - the staff was friendly and professional. Hence the second star. Unfortunately the facility left much to be desired. Plumbing leak behind toilet in bathroom that was molding and flooring discolored. The grout and caulking in the tub area was disgusting- as was the almost black non-slip tub matt. So much so, we decided to hold...

The staff at this facility are great. I mean really great. The management is lucky to have the staff that they do but they still can't offset the condition of this tired, worn out facility. While clean the carpets are worn, the A/C makes enough noise to convince you it really is working, and the water damage in the bathroom...
