This property is relatively cheap and close to US 99 north. The problem is, it is cheap, dirty, old, noisy, and guest service representatives are rude. They act like you are doing them a favor. The outer door wouldn't lock and I had to put a chair in front of door to secure the room. Ladies of the evening were... More

Convenient and clean...in Bakersfield for a sporting tournament for weekend, so the location was convenient, right off the 99...affordable and continental breakfast was satisfying. Would definitely return!

Staff was pleasant enough, room was clean, but the hotel felt old and starting the long spiral downward. The kicker for us was the homeless camp in the parking lot. Mentioned to staff and said there was nothing they could do because they were on IHOP property, and Bakersfield PD would not respond to have them vacate the lot.

Pros: Very clean bed and bathroom Excellent air conditioner Nice staff Easy freeway access Cons: Weak breakfast Non-bed furniture seemed a bit stained It's hot in Bakersfield. For the money they're asking this is fine if you're passing through town and need a spot to rest your head.

We needed a place to stay overnight to continue our trip home. I was a bit surprised how bad the exterior looked, as well as the lobby area. It looked unkept both outside and in the lobby. I think the area here (South) is not the best area either. I should have researched more before booking. With that said, the... More

Arrived late in the evening and appreciated having the grounds at night and the morning to walk my dog. The room was comfortable and very clean. Employees are very pleasant. Breakfast was the average easy meal to enjoy and get traveling. Coffee was better than most.

As a retired law enforcement officer I am used to identifying drug trafficking. In this case it is so wide open at the rear of the facility it could be used as a training ground for new narcotics officers. The day shift staff was helpful but the lady who checked us in the afternoon before left a lot to be... More

This is an older somewhat rambling motel, much larger than it appears from the street. It has been kept in pretty good condition and the staff are friendly and the breakfast good. Children are welcome and appear to enjoy the staff. Nice pool and out door area. Rooms are clean and TV is easy to use.

This is a nice motel, in a good area of Bakersfield. Some areas are sketchy. There are several good restaurants around this area. The rooms are clean, and the staff is friendly.The location is convenient from highways.
