I have stayed at this location numerous times over the past five years and it is always wonderful. The rooms, the lobby, the pool area and the grounds are always very well maintained and very clean. This visit I was helped at the front desk by Aracely. She is an absolute delight. She has helped me in the past and... More

We were on our way to LA from Fresno, and decided to stop over in Bakersfield to see Buck Owen's Crystal Palace. Stayed at the Red Lion Hotel next door. It was impressive for the price. Nice rooms, and free breakfast (You have a choice of 6 made to order breakfasts). It's nothing fancy, but in its heyday I'll bet... More

The newly opened Red Lion Hotel has done lots of facelifts and improvements. Customer service is very good and responsive to guests requests. Front office staff is very professional, courteous, and helpful.I stay here every week for 3-4 nights and see a marked improvement since the last few months.

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 have a dog so we are limited on where we can stay. The room is sticky and it smells like piss. The carpets are so so dirty!! It is old and dated. Bakersfield is a hard place to come and find a clean place to stay that is pet friendly. I can't believe there is know options if you... 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
