We drove in late, got a good room on the first floor corner. The folks in the lobby were pleasant enough, it's certainly a mom-and-pop operation - they were trying to catch a few winks in their room behind the front desk. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, there were plenty of pillows, the shower worked just fine,... More

Stayed here for an overnight stop over its nice hotel microwave and fridge, The staff at reception was really friendly and helpful, vending and pop matchine is side by the office door. At the end of the day it was a clean and good room enough to sleep in.

Terrible service at front desk. Politely asked for a room for just me after a long day of driving. THREE different times she told me NO GUESTS!! Told me the third time I'd be kicked out with no refund if I had a guest. I actually had to tell her to stop telling me that and that I was offended.... More

We chose this Motel 6 because it was the closest to the Famoso Dragstrip. Very friendly staff, clean room with a fridge and microwave, free WiFi and close to fast food chains and supermarket. So what if the bed covers were a bit frayed and the carpet worn, if you can't put up with that spend more on a higher... More

We stayed here in March on our way to LA. In fact, we stayed here last year and it was good then so we stayed here again. And the young blonde woman who had just started at nights last year was now on days so it was nice to see someone who I remembered and she was very friendly which... More

My wife and I traveling thru Bakersfield, read the prior reviews and figured this was the better Motel 6 around Bako for a one night stay. Maybe it is, but still overall worst one we have stayed in for all time, many years. The bathroom fan was broken and it looks like for some time, not a big problem. Two... More

I agree with with Justin_DBC, one of the worst Motel 6's I've stayed at. Except my room had no carpet. The bathroom was rundown and the sink drain leaked out all over the floor. Yes the parking lot had shady characters hanging out. Yes the hot beverage machine in the lobby was a plus. And yes the fridge and microwave... More

You get what you pay. This is a no-frills motel with everything you can need to rest. They offered free coffee which was a plus, free wi-fi and the room was clean, although a little old. I used the washing machine /drying machine even though it closes during at night. The staff was correct.
