I only stayed 1 night but I agree with what people say about this modest place. It's very clean, has great facilities and is well located. I've never stayed in a holiday inn express before so I wouldn't know what's unique to this place but I love the fact the table lights have built in power sockets so you can... More

I was here on business while working at the Bakersfield Fall Home Show. I stayed here for 4 nights. This hotel was WONDERFUL! Beautiful in every way. I was so spoiled coming back to my room after a very long and tiring day. The room decor was beautiful and very comfortable. I WAS on the freeway side, but with the... More

Busy highway in the back and a busy main thoroughfare in the front. It's a shame because the staff was friendly and accommodating and the facilities were clean and freshly remodeled. Overall, nice but noisy.

Who would have thought that the benchmark for hotel excellence would be found in Bakersfield, CA? We actually plan our drive between our homes in California and Nevada so that we can stay at this hotel. Everything at this hotel from the decor to the service to the room accommodations is a 10+. Experience this hotel and I'm confident you... More

I've been staying at this hotel for about 3 years and the service has been consistently on target. Kal and his staff are customer service oriented and ensure the rooms and entire facilities are maintained clean.

I travel to Bakersfield on business 2 or 3 times per year, and this is where I stay. The staff is friendly, professional, and customer service oriented. Yes, it's near the freeway and can be noisy, but I turn on my little white noise machine and voila! You can't beat the price for what you get - a clean, comfortable... More

I work in pharmacutical sales so I travel A LOT for work. In all my years of traveling across the states NEVER have I did a review on a hotel that I've stayed at but today is an exception. I arrived at this hotel, lost and with no intentions of staying there. The area was a bit concerning since it... More

This hotel really is a winner! This hotel has: An absolutely friendly, professional and helpful staff (anybody who travels will appreciate being greeted like a friend and a check-in time that is typically under 30 seconds...seriously me and my husband time it every time we stay there as a little inside joke between us) Really spacious rooms that are clean...clean...clean...

Let's face it folks, these hotels are usually placed very near a freeway so one side or the other (or both) are going to have rooms that are noisy. The time of year you are staying there also makes a big difference. When it's cold outside you will probably have the windows closed and the heater on, thus less outside... More
