Very enjoyable location, with very friendly staff, and great Breakfast included. This location was used by wedding guests. Had a dinner after the wedding practice, and the food was provided by the grooms Mother, and the hotel provided the tables and chairs for the dinner and the use of their kitchen overnight.

Hotel located on the side of Califórnia 99. We did not liked the neighborhood, but the Hotel is very good. Our room was ample, clean, equiped with microwave and small refrigerator. As our room was on the back, it faced the highway, so it was not as quiet as we expcted.

What makes an average/good to worst hotel exprerience is finding out that the hotel charged you for smoking fees on your credit card. For non-smokers (of any kind, and on member profile) and fanatically against smoking, being accused of this on the phone rudely by hotel staff (Asian Indian accent) when I inquired on what the charges are about is...

This is the only place in Bakersfield I stay when I am in town, long term or short term. Hotel staff is always happy and helpful, food is always hot, rooms always clean. They really go the extra mile for you and your family. Can't wait to book my next stay.

Always the best, cleanest and friendliest service. The only place I stay in Bakersfield. I stay there at least monthly. All the amenities you need. Fast check in and out. Clean rooms. Good Breakfast. I've never been disappointed in three years of stays there.

The recent stay at this hotel has been a great experience to say the least. Kal and team are always attentive and willing to help in any way. My employees and myself stayed there and gave them a short notice and without a problem. My hotel of choice every time I stay in Bakersfield.

The front desk was very helpful, both in directions and helping us out when my husband forgot his charger for his phone. Rooms are clean and if there is any problem they quickly take care of it. All in all a good value and a nice place to stay on business.

Thank Stephanie M
