Nice hotel with comfortable beds and clean rooms. Convenient downtown location. But had a difficult time finding a parking spot every night. Adjacent to arena and a shared parking lot is the reason. Serving Starbucks coffee in lobby is a plus. Even at $2.50 a cup.

This review is purely about their front desk service person named Audrey. I stay at Marriott a lot so I am usually accustomed to professional service. However I did not get it tonight. There was a car parked at the entrance of the parking lot obstructing the fire lane and traffic, and when I told the front desk about towing... More

Standard Marriott room and decor. I'm a Elite Platinum Lifetime Marriott Rewards member. Having stayed at many Marriott Hotels (over 900) I was very disappointed in the speed of the internet service. My speedtest actually "timed out" due to the ultra-slow connection. If an internet connection is important, I wouldn't stay here. Drove me crazy. There is a Courtyard in... More

Great location right in the middle of the city, this hotel is a great pit stop as the half way point between San Francisco and Las Vegas. A fair amount of restaurants around the hotel, but only one seemed like walking distance; a vehicle is required especially in the evenings if you have kids with you. The parking lot does... More

The front desk service staff were terrific. They were so helpful when I asked to change rooms twice. The first time was because I was next to the elevators and the second request was because a loud tour group checked in. The walls seem pretty thin so request a room in the upper levels and without and adjoining door. In... More

Overall, this is just a middle of the road Marriott. If you need a room in Bakersfield this property will meet your basic needs. When I first noticed a train passing by while looking out the window, I was hoping that it was not going to be my early morning wake up call. Fortunately, this was not the case.

This hotel is older, but stylish with very friendly staff. The restaurant downstairs went off the menu to customize an entrée for me which was great - albeit just a bit pricey. We had two problems during our stay. The walls are paper thin. We could hear conversations and other sounds from the room next door and definitely from anyone... More

I like this hotel. Good service. But I could hear my neighbor loud and clearly. I was on the concierge level which was nice but I just want to pay a quiet visit to the lounge and the attendant while very friendly has nothing to do other than hover over the food. Parking was easy. Dinner in the restaurant was... More

I stayed here recently on a quick over night business trip and had a great experience. The room was well appointed and had all of the amenities. I had a 5th floor room over looking the parking lot and had zero to little noise issues. The hotel was full due to a conference so the hall was noisy but by... More
