Pros: Spacious modern room, least expensive of the 3 Marriott properties in town, good service; Cons: Lousy, awful, next to useless internet connection, no fridge in room, pricey restaurant, paper-thin walls; I checked in and came across seemingly a hundred noisy high-school kids in the lobby, aked for the quietest room away from those kids, and the young lady at...

Ok, when I checked into this room I was extremely disappointed. I was provided with keys to my room and upon entering smelled an overwhelming amount of mold. I returned to the desk where they gave me another room. I entered that room and the mold smell was as bad. I returned to the front desk and two more times... More

Bakersfield was the halfway point in our road trip from Las Vegas back to Carmel. We chose Marriott because we are rewards members, and because we were looking for a larger hotel in what can be a fairly "sketchy" area. We were pleasantly surprised! The lobby has been recently remodeled, and our room was somewhat dated, but clean. Internet was... More

Arrived here pretty late after driving up from LAX. Centrally located for my meeting, lots of parking, near shops/eateries if you wish. Big rooms, clean, tidy, comfortable with great desk and quality internet. The rooms are starting to look a little dated, but not so much so that its an issue. Staff is very friendly and attentive; from check in,... More

Centrally located if attending a downtown or convention center game, concert or function. The rooms are starting to look a little dated and the bathrooms could use a little extra scrubbing in the corners. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Did not try the restaurants because our favorite in the area is the Basque food at Woolgrowers.

I don't believe many people think to stay downtown Bakersfield....but this a great choice. I stay a couple of times a year. I typically will take Amtrak and then walk over to the hotel. The hotel then will drop you off at the Hertz car rental downtown if you need a car. Service is always friendly and its a full... More

Not a bad hotel, but if you want a good nights sleep, I think it's best to request a room on the street side rather than the parking lot side. The trains woke me several times. Also if you need a hair dryer, look in the closet. The bed was extremely comfortable. Skip the hotel restaurant a few nice restaurants... More

We spent a night at the Marriott as a stop over between Santa Barbara and Sequioa. It was a good choice - excellent hotel, clean and comfortable as you would expect from a Marriott. It was at the convention centre - Bakersfield is a growing city mainly because of the agriculture of California central valley. We can't tell you much... More

Stayed here for 1 night and was plain satisfied with our stay, unfortunately the room we got had no view, all you can see is roof top of the hotel lobby. Room lacks refrigerator. No microwave, but we're told that we can request for it. No Free Breakfast.
