The staff here was great Fernando checked us in and made us feel right at home. The stop was convenient especially when your eyes feel heavy and your falling asleep on the long stretch after the grapevine. The rooms were newly renovated and the price was great. Will definitely stay here again.

Rooms were newly renovated and clean the staff was great. Fernando checked us in with excellent hospitality, I will definitely stay here again on my next trip. It gets semi-busy on weekends so making a reservation is a plus.

We were surprised. We came in as a family, expected a typical $39 hotel, but were awesomely surprised. I think the rooms are newly renovated and was given away for a very low price to gather good reviews here again. Because I saw by the door the original price list, and it's over $150 per night (supposedly). But I guess... More

Carpet was dirty, shower was not working right, phone didn't work all the time we were there. We had an issue with all the construction workers in the evening, sitting and standing outside drinking beer and throwing their... More

It was ok for a quick one night stay on our way to san francisco from vegas. We were unfortunate enough to have a big group of men turn up and play music til early hours of the morning in the carpark. The area isnt safe which is something we discovered afterwards. Rooms were clean and value for the money... More

Granted the price was good, but Bakersfield is full of relatively acceptable places around $50/night. It was a little closer to our work destination than some of the other closer in town choices, but the physical aesthetics of the place were nasty! The continental breakfast is a choice between 2 cereals and juice. The motel promotes "hi speed internet" on... More
