This place is really nice for an express, entry way is gorgeous. The staff is excellent, helpful especially Cal.Great guy and willing to do anything for a guest. Anytime I'm in Bakersfield this will be my home. Close to a couple great places to eat. Check out hungry hunter if I can recall correctly amazing lamb.

My husband and I really liked this place. We got a warm reception at our very early morning arrival. The beds are big and comfortable with lots of pillows and I like that the room included a sink, fridge and microwave at the in-room bar. We picked this place because it was halfway between LA and Sequoia National Park without... More

Stayed 7 days and it was a great experience. We used their meeting room and worked 12 hour days. Management and staff were great, always making sure we had everything we needed. Loved the hotel room, it was so comfortable.

The staff was more than gracious, professional, and courteous. Exceptional rooms, clean, spacious, and a homelike feeling. I was with a group that was working in their conference room and it was more than acceptable. The staff and manager was always available to meet any of our needs. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying 1 night or... More

When I entered the hotel I was immediately greeted by the staff. I was alone and feeling rather self conscience but the staff was warm and friendly. I guess they could tell I was a bit uncomfortable about being alone because later that evening they called my room and invited me down to watch the playoffs with other guest. I... More

We stayed the night last week on our way to Yosemite. Coming in off the road, we were greeted by friendly staff who made us feel right at home. The room was clean, large, and comfortable. Not the Plaza Hotel, but a nice place to stay.

This place has to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed at in recent history. Holiday Inn should dump this property. If they knew how bad it is they would remove their name from the front of the hotel. When we checked in they had a bunch of construction workers hanging out in the lobby. I guess they were... More

However, when you are back through Bakersfield please consider our hotel as I would assure your stay will be different. If need be you may call me directly at 661.395.9800. More

I selected this hotel by default, due to Hilton's dishonesty about their "best rate guarantee" I found a better rate on the Travelocity website for the Bakersfield Hilton Garden Inn. When Hilton refused to beat it (as their corporate reservations policy states), I cancelled it and came here! I am so glad I made the change! Not only is this... More

We stayed here 1 night on our recent California vacation. We were coming from Carmel on our way to Death Valley. The hotel was a perfect halfway point for us. This is exactly the kind of hotel that you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. The rooms were clean and the staff were very helpful. Unfortunately we did not... More

If you are in transit going from one place to another and you find yourself here, this is the place for you. Very friendly staff, great hotel room, nice cosy bed and good breakfast in the morning plus just off the highway.
