Friendly and efficient check in. Quiet location. Plenty of parking. Outdoor pool. Gym. Short walk to Goose Loonies for good beer. Decent sized room, but aircon struggled to cool the room down sufficiently and was noisy. Bathroom supplies are fixed to the wall rather than in bottles (a small thing, but makes a difference to us). Reasonable self-serve breakfast -... More

We stayed for one night whilst passing through between Yosemite and Vegas. Whilst the staff were very friendly, the overall experience was disappointing. The room was dated and suffered from stained/dirty carpets. Found the air conditioning unit to be so loud that you struggled to sleep through the noise (sleeping through the heat wasn't much of an alternative either...). Pillows... More

We spent a night at the Best Western Hill House in Bakersfield on our way to Las Vegas. The Room was clean and the beds comfortable. Breakfast was regular but well made with a good selection. I would recommend this hotel.

Property is OK, I think It's a little dated. The front building hall is dark and dreary and when you walk in the front door, it always smells like I'm in a hospital. I just think the property is a Plus, only because of it's location. Shame it's the only BW in Bakersfield, BW Heritage can't really be called Bakersfield,... More

Bad location bad amenities carpets torn and stained. place did not look like it had been cleaned. Had to get bleach wipes to clean the room myself. Other members of my travel group experienced the same issues in their rooms.

The hotel was fine, but just average. The location was not great in terms of feeling safe and it was noisy being surrounded by streets and traffic. The restaurant was over-priced and I don't like sitting in a bar.

Great place to stay. The restaurant attached is fantastic. They have a full bar but it does close at 9:00 p.m. This location is near everything. The amtrak is right across the way as well as the Rabobank Theatre.
