For the most part staff friendly. Room clean, secure environment and breakfast satisfactory. Rooms show age; carpet stains, torn bedsheets. WIIFI may or may not work from room. Good for overnight stay. No restaurant within walking distance but mini mart/gas station nearby. Easy access to Interstate.

Nice basic hotel for a weary traveler. Fresh cookies on arrival was nice touch. Only reason I didn't rate as a 5 was TV didn't work properly. Breakfast was nice and well stocked. Very glad TV wasn't on in the breakfast room. Nice gym but recumbent bike was out of order. Good rest.

We were traveling from Phoenix to Northern CA and stayed here on the way. It's kind of run-down looking on the outside, but rooms inside were good. Plus, you can bring your dog, which was a big reason we stayed here. Breakfast was standard fare. Pool was shut down. Good stopover spot but wouldn't want to stay for any length...

If you were looking to stay in Tehachapi, proper, I would not recommend the La Quinta. As another reviewer said, it has seen better days. Although our room was clean, Our bathroom tiles had cracks in it as an example and looked more like something from a Motel 6. But, it does have a Pet Friendly status and to be...

Hotel has no elevators. Has 4 separate buidlings. Be sure to confirm where your room is located. This was not clear to us and we schlepped our luggage up and down stairs three times before we found our two rooms-and they were as far apart from each other as they could be in different buildings. Pool and spa were one...

This hotel was a TraveLodge, when it was built many years ago. Has been a La Quinta the past few years. Stayed because it is pet-friendly...and doesn't charge you more because you bring a pet. Hotel is in need of repair/updating. Grout around tub, and on the floor, was missing in a lot of places. Room doors were in need...

I must admit there was a bit about this place that I liked but it's the bad we remember, right? Because of this i'll list both. The girl at the desk although seemingly inattentive just wasn't great with her people skills, Esmeralda, I think? The parking lot was super sketchy. The room itself was pretty decent, bed clean, sheets clean,...

Would recommend this Motel to friends and family, or any one passing through, Safe place to stay when traveling alone. Staff very friendly and helpful, and the pool and landscape beautiful, check out the railroad museum in downtown Tehachapi and don't forget the bakery

LaQuinta doesn't give me grief about my cat, so they're my guys. The motel is clean and otherwise unexceptional. Staff is friendly and tries to be responsive. Rooms are good-sized. For a place that's in the middle of nowhere, it is surprisingly good.
