I traveled to this hotel from Denver for my father's heart surgery at Bakersfield Heart Hospital behind the hotel. I had called the hotel on arrival to have the 'free' shuttle come to pick me up at the airport. I waited almost 30 minutes with no sign of the shuttle. I then took a cab. The front of the hotel...

We don't normally stay here when we pass through Bakersfield, but we're so glad we did. Most Red Lions are showing their age but this one exceeded our expectations. The room was large, very clean and the heat was very quiet. Which after a long day of driving was very appreciated. A king room was only $56.00! So, this will... More

This hotel has a newly renovated lobby, a resort-style pool area, and very comfortable, clean rooms. Housekeeping service is prompt and thorough. The location is conveniently right off of the freeway, there is a gas station with mini store right next door, and sit-down or drive-thru restaurants surround the hotel. It is only 16 minutes drive from Cal State University,... More

I'm not sure if the rooms to the right are newer than the ones to the left, but I stayed here 4 months ago, and the "wing" I stayed in this time seemed a little more updated. We had to change rooms twice, but I'm glad we did. The electrical plugs could use some updating, as my "cube" recharger for... More

I am very in press with the red lion in Bakersfield. Beautiful rooms. They go out of their way to make it a pleasant stay. The pool and spa are excellent. I recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Bakersfield

Now under a new name and management group with the idea to go a little more upscale, was a Best Western, rooms are spacious and equipped with the essentials. The wifi is terrible, really only works in the lobby, but was told they had multiple routers, our room was on the second floor 3 doors away from the lower floor... More

For the price I paid the Hotel was well above what one would expect. Found it thru the AAA guide book, advertised as Best Western, address is wrong, but phone # worked, so created no problem. Would not recommend Rm 114, even though it is very close to lobby and entrance. Room was clean, bath was excellent. Staff was extremely... More
