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...

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. I read another review that complained there was no carpet in their room. Yes, and thank you so much! There was a very nice laminate floor, with no gross stains or...

We were given a room close to the entrance area on the ground floor as we requested. VERY wonderful front desk service!! The room was nice and clean and comfortable. Everything worked well. There is a railroad line across the highway and I thought that it might be noisy but no problem. Very quite. The breakfast was quite complete with...

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.

We have been to this LaQuinta several times... but when we went this time, there was no carpeting in our room. The hallways were all filthy dirty. This hotel needs a remodel. I do not think we will be staying here again. There are too many other choices in town.

We have stayed here several times the past four years. This time we found the place to be well worn and not well kept. The sheets felt like paper and the room had a feel of worn down to it. We also observed the manager hounding the employees in the breakfast room. True, the price is lower than the others...

Shelley K, Manager at La Quinta Inn Tehachapi, responded to this review

Hi Recluse1a, I'm sorry that this stay wasn't up to standards. We are working hard to turn this place around as we have just recently acquired. We have already started the new remodeling of the hotel and hope that next time you come this way you will give us another try.

Overall, it was good. Clean room and bed. Pet friendly which was a plus because we were traveling with out dogs for the first time. It was quiet and the bed was comfortable. However the thrown needs a major update, the tv is blurry and the sop in the bathroom was from best western.

I travel with my dog so I often stay at La Quinta which aren't great but a decent value and this particular one has always been worn and dated. But now in the dog friendly rooms they removed the carpeting and bedspreads, making it finally totally unacceptable. Torn chairs, non-functioning exterior locks etc. Breakfast didn't have juice, milk or rolls....

I stay at La Quinta any time I have a chance because they are not only pet friendly (which I love!) but they also have affordable prices, clean & updated rooms, and friendly staff. The only hiccup I've had at the Tehachapi location has been with one of the key cards not working. Not too big of a deal because...
