“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

Clean, clean, clean! Friendly and helpful staff. When entering the stairway looks like the mansion stairway from the Beverly hillbillies movie. Beautiful wooden banister. Rooms are HUGE with sitting area and desk. Also bathrooms are spacious. Breakfast was great, a good variety. If in the area, stay here you will not be disappointed. Reasonable rates.

Room Tip: Some rooms are near freeway. Ask for ear plugs or a room not near this area.

We chose this hotel as it was on the main route between Vegas and San francisco. The room was clean and breakfast was good. There is not much else around the hotel but that didnt matter as it was just a stop over for us.

I only stayed 1 night but I agree with what people say about this modest place. It's very clean, has great facilities and is well located. I've never stayed in a holiday inn express before so I wouldn't know what's unique to this place but I love the fact the table lights have built in power sockets so you can charge you phone/laptop. The shower unit isn't the prettiest out there but it's clean and powerfull and even has the mid-mounted jets : most top hotels don't have this. I also loved the toiletries : really nice Cinneman, and the curves staircase to the Libby adds drama ! Sel service breakfast was limited but ok : all on polystyrene and plastic though: so a bit like a 5 year olds birthday party........ Without the kids.

I was here on business while working at the Bakersfield Fall Home Show. I stayed here for 4 nights. This hotel was WONDERFUL! Beautiful in every way. I was so spoiled coming back to my room after a very long and tiring day. The room decor was beautiful and very comfortable. I WAS on the freeway side, but with the window closed, it did not disturb my sleep. The breakfast was great. All the personnel I dealt with were also great. I highly recommend this hotel!

Busy highway in the back and a busy main thoroughfare in the front. It's a shame because the staff was friendly and accommodating and the facilities were clean and freshly remodeled. Overall, nice but noisy.

Who would have thought that the benchmark for hotel excellence would be found in Bakersfield, CA? We actually plan our drive between our homes in California and Nevada so that we can stay at this hotel. Everything at this hotel from the decor to the service to the room accommodations is a 10+. Experience this hotel and I'm confident you will be telling your friends about this hotel that defines excellence.

I've been staying at this hotel for about 3 years and the service has been consistently on target. Kal and his staff are customer service oriented and ensure the rooms and entire facilities are maintained clean.
