Hotel located on the side of Califórnia 99. We did not liked the neighborhood, but the Hotel is very good. Our room was ample, clean, equiped with microwave and small refrigerator. As our room was on the back, it faced the highway, so it was not as quiet as we expcted.

We booked this hotel based on other ratings and as we walked through the front door we didn't think we were at a Holiday Inn ... One word entry is gorgeous ! We stayed in King suite w Jacuzzi the room was clean, large and comfy.. Staff were welcoming we checked in early, room was clean, and well decorated.. 2... More

What makes an average/good to worst hotel exprerience is finding out that the hotel charged you for smoking fees on your credit card. For non-smokers (of any kind, and on member profile) and fanatically against smoking, being accused of this on the phone rudely by hotel staff (Asian Indian accent) when I inquired on what the charges are about is...

This is the only place in Bakersfield I stay when I am in town, long term or short term. Hotel staff is always happy and helpful, food is always hot, rooms always clean. They really go the extra mile for you and your family. Can't wait to book my next stay.

Always the best, cleanest and friendliest service. The only place I stay in Bakersfield. I stay there at least monthly. All the amenities you need. Fast check in and out. Clean rooms. Good Breakfast. I've never been disappointed in three years of stays there.

The recent stay at this hotel has been a great experience to say the least. Kal and team are always attentive and willing to help in any way. My employees and myself stayed there and gave them a short notice and without a problem. My hotel of choice every time I stay in Bakersfield.

The front desk was very helpful, both in directions and helping us out when my husband forgot his charger for his phone. Rooms are clean and if there is any problem they quickly take care of it. All in all a good value and a nice place to stay on business.

Like mist if the holiday inn express this one also gives you good value. Rooms are nice clean and big enough. Breakfast is above average (have to pay ) in U.S. standard. You can probably find closer to down town hotels but prices are also higher . If you have a car that's a good option Good choice for one... More

After 20+ night staying there, I have never been to a hotel that made me feel like I was coming home after work like this hotel. Kal and the rest of the staff (especially nice guy who works nights but don't know his name) are the most helpful and friendly I have ever had at a hotel. I was greeted... More

Here I go again. This is our third visit to this hotel, and it has yet to disappoint us. We stayed in rm 107 where the window faces the parking lot, so away from the freeway or freeway entrance, so it is not busy with cars zooming by. We stayed 4 nights as I had a con-ed course I was... More
