After a long day on the road, my wife and I had an unfortunate experience when our original hotel (Days Inn- Bakersfield), which is grossly misrepresented, had a weapon between the matresses. After working with Expedia they moved us to this Holiday Inn Express in Bakersfield. The hotel was very willing to help us, very clean, maintained rooms, good comp... More

This is one of the best holiday inn's i have stayed at while traveling on business. I was impressed with the manager and the staff was excellent. Housekeepers always went the extra mile to make sure things were done to my specifications. Breakfast bar is excellent and kept clean, nice cozy fitness center on site as well. nice big rooms...

Purpose of the trip to Bakersfield was to see a show at the nearby Buck Owens Crystal Palace (a great place for music, by the way). Got two rooms, one for my parents and one for me, both on the ground floor. For $95 per room (tax included), it was good value - big rooms, high ceilings, clean and quiet.... More

We decided to stop for a night in Bakersfield after a long day of driving. Since we have had positive experiences with Holiday Inn Express in the past ,this was our choice. The hotel appeared to be brand new, although I learned that it was 3 years old and previously belonged to another chain. The gentleman at the front desk... More

For US$60.00/ night plus taxes, great value and great location, 'cos it's off the Highway 99 at Buck Owens Blvd. exit. It was a hot day Sep. 25, 2010, so the A/C worked beautifully. The big LCD TV is mounted onto the wall, and can not be rotated (turned), and it wasn't centered in front of the bed, so... but,... More

I usually stay at the Hilton Garden Inn across the highway but I decided to gain points with HIE this time and I am so glad I did. Whenever I go back to Bakersfied I will definitely stay here again. For the price it was a phenominal hotel. The Owner and his Son take a lot of pride in the... More

Other extras in the room like refrigerator, microwave, large screen TV, wireless internet, ironing board, hair dryer. Staff was friendly and helped us with driving directions. Nice common area upstairs with tables and chairs, so I could work on my computer without disturbing my wife. Finally a fantastic $89 special rate for the square dance convention.

We loved this hotel. Beautiful decor in the the lobby and the room. Polite staff, clean, comfortable, and classy. Very comfortable bed and elegant bedding. Liked all the amenities except the little "pod" coffeemaker.

The hotel looks new and clean inside and out. Very spacious room and tall ceiling. Sound insulation is good and highway noise is not an issue (my room was on the highway side). Enjoyed the stay greatly!

This was a pretty good bargain. The room was really nice, clean, smelled good, pretty big, the bed was super comfortable. Not much in the way of amenities, though. Pool was unheated and the hot tub was completely cold despite what the front desk person told me. No complimentary breakfast. Otherwise perfect.
