Enjoyed staying there and things went well. The Jacuzzi was nice, but not really that hot. The breakfast in the mooring was average but the coffee wasn't bad. The access to the freeway is great as you get right off and on at the hotel.

I am a physician and frequently travel to assignments so I have lots of experience with hotels and their staffs. This hotel is designed beautifully with an impressive lobby graced by broad twin staircases and a beautiful overhead chandelier. A continental breakfast is served in the morning. Coffee and fruit are available day and night. My rooms have always been... More

I've been coming to this place since 2009. Staff has come and gone but what hasn't changed is service. It doesn't matter who they are, the service has remained excellent. I feel like family when I come in to the hotel. They know me by 1st name and if there is a new person working the front desk, they are... More

Great stay! Thumb up to their newly renovated inn :) furniture are new, brightly lit room, complimentary delicious breakfast included. What's more?! Added with friendly service, this is definitely worth a min of your consideration for your stay. The only downside is - the location is quite secluded and dark for night drive.

Spent just one night at the property. The check-in by two girls was a bit confused, they were chatting more among themselves than servicing me. The property is the average HIE, nice and clean, but nothing out of the ordinary. The lobby is nice with the impressive staircase on both sides. The room was clean, spacious and in good shape,...

I stay in allot of hotels with my job, and have been a "Platinum Priority IHG" member for over 13 years. This Holiday Inn was the worst. I was told at "check in" that I needed to show them "Travel Orders" due to being a GOV employee. When I tried explaining that I didn't, and never had them in the... More

We were on the road and getting tired so we decided to stop here. For $10 more we were able to get a room with 2 KING beds instead of 2 queens. Room was clean, big, well kept. Beds were great. My only criticism is regarding the breakfast. The pancake machine didn't work very well, the food was fair at... More

Hotel is consistent with the updated and contemporary HIExpress. The front desk staff gave extra value to my stay--very accommodating and professional especially meeting my needs for a mobility room and even provided me the toiletries that I forgot to bring. Breakfast bar was also consistent to the brand and was kept full and warm. If window view isn't so... More

The hotel is located in the center of Bakerfield near to some fast food restaurants. The rooms are big enough with large and comfortable beds. You can get standart free wi-fi and standart holiday inn breakfast.
