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

We had left a speaker to our phone in the room and they called within a few hours of checking out to let me know. I was very impressed with Curtis taking the extra step to call me and arrange to get it returned to me. I appreciate this kind of customer service. Good value for price paid for room... More

This was the "Best Western Crystal Palace Inn & Suites" until the motel chain sold-out to private ownership and it was renamed: "Palm Garden Inn & Suites" just last month. We stayed there in October '14 when it was B/W property, and when we went back early March of 2015 it had changed ownership, presumably because the place is in... More

I had quite a shock trying to book a room here in mid-January. For many, many years this was a Best Western property but the owners decided to go it alone or with a new franchise 'yet to be determined'. Because of this, Crystal Palace was not on the Best Western website. At first I believed that there was a... More

This property was always our go to both as a Best Western and proximity to the Crystal Palace. However when we arrived we were told they were no longer a Best Western. It's a good value and you get a regular breakfast at the adjoining restaurant. Property needs a face lift outside and some TLC in the rooms date and... More

This hotel used to be a Best Western but no longer after 1/4/14. I stay here because they give me a good rate. It is nothing special. It is an average hotel in an average city in a little less than average part of town. However, it is right next to the freeway so you can get to other parts... More
