Graph: Upcoming 20 Days of Tehachapi Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Tehachapi, CA discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Tehachapi hotel for each day and each star rating category.

The name Tehachapi is thought to come from the dialect of the original inhabitants, the Kawaiisu people. Their word tihachipia means “hard climb,” an accurate description for this location that sits 4,000 feet above sea level! On its settlement in the 1860s, it was simply called Old Town. However, its name was later changed to reflect its roots.

Tehachapi's downtown area grew rapidly after the construction of the Southern Pacific-SP railroad depot. The depot, which was the city's oldest building, suffered severe fire damage in 2008. However, it was lovingly restored and converted into a museum celebrating the city's railroad past.

Modern Tehachapi retains a relaxed small-town feel, but it's a city on the move. Its population has grown by almost 13 percent since 2009, driven by its low crime rate, beautiful weather, and friendly community feel. The city's retail sector is also one of the fastest growing in the state. Tehachapi is considered something of a local secret among the residents and tourists who return year after year. Discover why they love it so much before everyone learns of its appeal!

When should you visit Tehachapi, CA?

Its elevation gives Tehachapi more variable, comfortable temperatures than many Californian locations. Its summers are warm without being oppressively hot. Average midyear daily temperatures usually sit in the 80s. While the mercury occasionally creeps over 100 during heat waves, these are rare. The desert climate means the heat is much drier than along California's coastline.

Rain and snow are common during the spring. Tehachapi gets most of its rain from December to March. Light showers are more common than thunderstorms though, so it's unlikely to disturb your travel plans too much. March also brings most of Tehachapi's snow, although light falls occur between November and April.

Fall is arguably the best time for visiting Tehachapi. It rarely rains or snows during this season, and typical daily highs in the 60s and 70s are perfectly pleasant. Accommodation prices also fall once the summer travelers return home.

Note though that you'll need a California Department of Fish and Wildlife Fishing License if you're aged 16 or older. Swimming and wading aren't permitted, as the lake provides water for the Greater Tehachapi Area.

Tehachapi Mountain Park is another beautiful campground with facilities for the entire community. Explore the trails on foot or rent a horse from the small on-site corral. The park spans 490 acres, so make sure you allow plenty of time if you want to see it all. While the park intends to open all year round, road closures are common during heavy snow. If you can access the park during winter, tire chains are recommended.

Recent renovations have made Meadowbrook Park even more exciting. There are two playgrounds for the kids and exercise equipment for adults. Open grassy areas provide space for young and old to burn off excess energy. The Bike Pump Track, with thrilling bumps and berms, is great fun. The on-site dog park, with separate areas for large and small dogs, is perfect for travelers staying in local pet-friendly motels. Put them through their paces on the agility equipment, or enjoy a simple game of fetch in the open grassy spaces.
