if the get the distinct please of staying the night in Bakersfield this is your place. Location is good lots of restaurants and shopping around. There is also very easy access to the freeway from the location. Rooms are always very clean and staff is super friendly. My favorite part of this hotel are the body jets in the showers!

Perfect location. Center of Bakersfield. Near freeway, Costco & eateries. Rooms & bathrooms are modern & very clean. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Continental breakfast is available if you up early and on the run. Couldn't ask for more for the price.

Everything is new in this hotel. The beds were comfortable, the hot tub hit the spot. The breakfast in the morning had a great spread that our whole family enjoyed. Very friendly staff that made you feel like family. We will stay here again when in town.

After a long flight and driving for a couple of hours this hotel was a welcome site. The room was clean and well designed. The bed was the best I have ever slept in.
