This is merely an OK hotel with very thin walls and ceilings. An upper floor room would not have people above, who when just walking, can creak the floor over a lower floor room. Definite updating is badly need here. House keeping was just adequate - I did find a beer bottle in the trash can.??

I booked this hotel through the Best Western site and made a mistake on the date. The staff was very helpful to correct this. The place was very nice, quiet (an occasional train). We go through Bakersfield occasionally on the way to visit family in Oakland. We will be stopping at the Hill House again.

with my son we stayed just for a night, so did not care much about the place, just needed some rest; the hotel itself seems nice, with nice garden and a pool; kind staff, clean room, parking; no complaints really - except: the door in the bedroom, separating us from the guests in the neighbouring room? I do not know,... More

Book directly through the Hotel itself. Then you may or may not be misled. Booked this room through Best Westerns Customer Service number and was told incorrect information by their employee named Megan. Then called the Hotel directly and spoke to the front desk and he was anything but reasonable. Argued, refused to accommodate. This was my last stay with... More

Staff promised to match Priceline prices and did not horror that promise when I check out. Manager was busy talking on cell phone and would not speak tp me about the situation. He just indicated that the price that was listed was the best he could do and then left me at the counter to pay my bill without another... More

We arrived late and left early, so my impressions are limited. Check-in was fast and we were assigned a first floor room in the "annex" - a separate building from the main unit. The room was large by motel standards and featured a separate sink area from the toilet/shower unit. This is a big plus for us. The wifi was... More

We arrived at this hotel tired and ready to relax in the sun. We weren't disappointed as they have a little swimming pool with loungers. Our room was very comfortable - well appointed. We ate in the restaurant/bar attached to the hotel - Mexican food and fish dishes. We both thought the food was very good. The staff were very... More

I was expecting a little more than what I got. First, I was expecting a good night's sleep, but that didn't happen due to the small pillows (like throw pillows) were very uncomfortable. Second the noise that came from our upstairs neighbors because every time the walked there was very loud creaking from their floor to our ceiling at 2:30... More

very disappointed in the room. Cobwebs, carpet very worn and the smell of the room was bad. Arrived late after getting terrible directions from staff at hotel. Will not stay here again. Not a Best Western in my book or else the standards of these hotels have gone down.
