From the time you walk in the door and are greeted by the staff at check-in until the time you leave everyone extremely friendly. The property is well managed and clean and the rooms are quite. You are offered bottle water at check-in and check out which is nice since I think the Bakersfield water has a petroleum smell to... More

The moment we walked in , we could tell this was a nice place. The spiral staircase is beautiful. Cal checked us in and gave us two bottles of water. The room was spacious and loaded with amenities, including a great t.v. refrigerator, and the bathroom was out of this world. There was a nozzle to set the exact temperature... More

Looking for a 1 night booking while passing through Bakersfield we chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews.

From the parking lot we booked online and walked in again and the staff treated us very... More

This is a beautiful hotel with amazing duel staircases, you have to see it. The staff is wonderful and are a joy to visit with. If your in Bakersfield, you need to stay at this hotel with Kal Patel. I'll always stay here. Great place!!!! Best Holiday Inn I've ever stayed at.

We were here as a stopover on our way to Death valley and we totally loved this place. Absolutely delightful staff. We left our GPS in the room and could not find it (it was hidden beneath the pillow). We informed Kal, the General Manager. In 2 hours time, we received a call from the hotel informing that they had... More

I definitely recommend this hotel. The staff is very accommodating, access was easy and the room was comfortable. We stayed here between camping in Death Valley and visiting Sequoia and it was a great choice. I used the laundry facilities and that was a bonus.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks and the staff was great! They were always offering me water and making sure my stay was always pleasant. I would definitely recommend staying here, it is the best hotel in town and the price is reasonable. My room was always clean and it was very quiet. Breakfast is great! Plus when... More

This was the friendliest staff we've ever encountered when staying at a Holiday Inn, the room was very nice (I had the best night sleep I've ever had in a hotel), great recommendations for dinner and within walking distance to The Crystal Palace.
