We used to enjoy visiting about once a month, but will absolutely never go back. Service has slipped horribly. In the lounge, last month our group waited 30 minutes before we were even acknowledged -- and service didn't get much better. Today was almost as bad. And when I complained, I was asked if I wanted to speak to the... More

The Bakersfield Marriot was a nice litte surprise. Wasn’t expecting much but when I showed up I was glad to see a nice modern hotel. The room was very comfortable and the bed, desk, tv, and all the little things were nice and clean. The restaurant, bar, and lobby downstairs were perfect for business travelers. It had free wifi and... More

While the hotel itself has been cosmetically upgraded and looks modern and clean, the biggest problems at this Marriott are the systems that weren't updated and remain out of sight. My room had the LOUDEST air conditioner that I've ever heard. It rattled and banged like a jack-hammer ALL NIGHT. I called the desk at about 1 am because I... More

Arrived around 9pm. Asked if there was any coffee or snacks available. Was told that there wasnt any and was directed to the bar. Bartender said that he could make me an expresso for charge and that the bar did have coffee in the morning also for a charge. Very small market behind lobby and since it was late there... More

We arrived to find a huge wedding going on and their restaurant closed for the entire day for the wedding...that was a little upsetting given my family and I were hungry and were forced to find dining off the property since we didn't want to order room...

Chose this place for a family event and to get away from the Hwy 99 bustle. Good choice! Room is spacious & clean and the staff friendly & helpful. I thought we were in trouble when we arrived and found that Ringling Bros. Circus was next door at the convention center - should we expect clowns in the lobby? But... More

Every time I tell my friends I'm going to Bakersfield for the weekend, they always ask "Bakersfield?? What is there to do?" Bakersfield is a lovely city if you're not bothered by the weather (too hot in the summer, too cold in the winter if you are from LA). From the simple, but friendly and cozy Wool Growers Basque restaurant,... More
