Recently stayed here for a few days while visiting relatives in the area. While the hotel lobby is nice, the rooms lack upkeep. The bathroom felt like someone had just left, and the bed looked hastily made when we arrived. The walls were paper thin-we could hear basic conversations in rooms on either side, and we heard the train pass... More

As Marriott platinum, we were not given a room on the concierge floor nor an upgrade. Room was adequate, no refrig or safe, which would be nice. Our room also faced the side of the railroad, so we heard the trains multiple times. As elite members, this should not have been done.. Concierge lounge was mediocre, at best. There were... More

I always stay at the Marriott while in town for business. They've always been spectacular with their service but lacked this time around. I wasn't greeted as a rewards member or welcomed back. I was asked who I was, front desk was confused that I had used the mobile app to check in. Wasn't given any specifics or asked if... More

I have been staying at this hotel for multiple reasons both business and pleasure for over 12 years but I have never taken the time to truly give them there props. I am a platinum Marriott rewards member in the spirit of full disclosure but one of the things that makes any service organization great is "the little things". I... More

Recently stayed at this property after a long week of travel and many hotel stays. Was a little disappointed. Shower did not drain properly, tv made popping sounds when on, and sheets had a grease stain on them. Overall room was clean and quiet.

I've stayed here several times and aside from being in Bakersfield, it's a pretty nice hotel with friendly, helpful staff. You have to swipe your room key in the elevator for extra security. Even the regular rooms are clean, spacious and well kept. They have high, soft and comfy beds with nice linens. It's close to downtown if you dare... More

We travel frequently between San Francisco and Newport Beach, CA. Since Hwy 5 can be dreadfully tiresome, we often stay at a motel along the way. But, on June 29, 2014, my wife and I decided to do something different. Through Priceline we booked the Marriot's near the convention center in Bakersfield, CA. We offered an accepted bid of $84...
