One of the nicest hotels I've stayed at. The gentleman at the front desk was lovely and eager to help. The only fault I can say is one night I was there I was waiting to speak to the receptionist and a lady who spoke Spanish pushed in front of me and the receptionist served her first because they were...

My family (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed here on the way to Vegas. We were attracted to the location because it is next door to Buck Owens Crystal Palace. The pool and gardens were beautiful and a refreshing break from the heat. All the staff were extremely friendly, and the free breakfast (made to order from a menu) was... More

We arrived after dark and called the property. "Marco" answered the phone and gave us great directions! When we arrived he booked our room and gave us the name of a wonderful restaurant within walking distance of the motel. Marco is a great asset to this motel. The room was spacious and clean for our overnight stay. The complimentary hot... More

We stopped for the night on our way to Modesto. Based upon the price point and reviews, we chose to stay here. The hotel is in the middle of transitioning to a Red Lion from a privately owned hotel. The room was very large and comfortable. It was clean with little touches like the towels folded creatively in the bathroom.... More

We were passing through Bakersfield on our way home and stayed at the Palm Garden. We got a discount coupon from one of the coupon books that are available at the Rest Stops and the Palm Garden was rated best amongst the other hotels with coupons. It was a nice property with a beautiful spacious pool area. Overall the hotel... More

Our family spent a week in California and the first night was at Palm Garden Inn. The room was clean and very comfortable beds. Our kids enjoyed the pool and the value was the best during our week in California. Thank you!

We recently held our wedding reception at the Palm Garden Inn and Suites. The room was large enough to accommodate my 80 guests plus had a dance floor and a stage for the DJ. The owner's assistance was greatly appreciated. Unfortunately we were unable to stay at the hotel as the rooms were all booked prior to our decision to... More

The Palm Garden Inn and Suites is a fantastic place to stay! We selected this as a stopping point while traveling to Southern California. The price was great and the rooms were very nice! Very comfortable beds and the owners are very nice. The free breakfast that was provided was a really nice surprise. We were expecting to have the... More
