I needed a place to stay for seven nights to make arrangements for a funeral. From the very beginning Raj and his staff were very helpful and attentive. When I requested a block of rooms short notice for relatives, the staff bent over backwards to meet our needs. Whenever I am in Bakersfield, I will make it a point to... More

Excellent value for our short stop en route to northern California, Very clean, very comfortable bed, safe and monitored parking lot, quiet but near the freeway. The clerk was helpful and the breakfast was a step up from the usual cold cereal and bagels.

If you like being a few blocks away from a strip joint and Buck Owen's Crystal Palace this is the place for you. Bakersfield is not a destination, just a stop in between. I was not impressed, but I have stayed at much, much, much, worse places.

We spent a Saturday night at this hotel. Several groups were also guests but we never heard a thing -- and that's a good thing! Clean, although there were some tiny ants in the bathtub which staff immediately cleaned and sprayed away ... We stayed in suite. Disappointed though in lack of of outlets. Veneer pulling away from cupboards. No... More

Greeted as I walked in the door and that was the beginning of the personal touch provided by the staff. Beautiful, lush landscaping. Rooms that seem to belong in a much expensive hotel. I stayed in a room facing the outside and was able to park in front of the door. Very convenient! I would stay again without hesitation!

Our group stayed in this hotel as part of a two week trip across the western US. Since funding was limited, price was a major consideration for the trip. I can say without doubt, this was the best value we had on the entire trip. Clean and newly remodeled rooms, nice pool area, and a good breakfast.

Agree with other reviews. Hidden gem. Rooms a bit small but this is a budget motel. Usually stay at Hilton or Marriott Springhill Suites, this is comparable to in features at lower price. Bar/lounge next to is a dump! Must travel a bit to get food.

This is probably the best kept secret in Bakersfield. The rooms are very clean and the management is excellent. Of course, you can probably spend more in Bakersfield, but for the cost you won't find a better place to stay. We have stayed at many places in Bakersfield, and this one is our favorite.

This hotel was great! I kept a group of students at this hotel for 3 nights while leading them on an expeditionary learning program focusing on the geology and ecology of the southern San Joaquin Valley. The accomodations considerably nicer than many hotels I have stayed at charging twice the price. The manager and staff were courteous and professional and... More
