Wouldn't stay here more than one night. First motel ever to scare me. Homeless people outside that followed our vehicle then walked off when we parked. ?? Nice rooms. Nice staff. Waffle maker and fruits with continental breakfast. Internet didn't work like stated online. Great price. Right by IHOP. Sketchy town.

We stayed for one night while traveling. When we entered the lobby, 2-3 housekeeping personnel by the door, we said hello to them and received blank stares. The desk clerk was matter of fact not overly friendly. See bluntly pointed to a printed sign taped to the front desk and told us we need to read it. It was informing... More

For the price-point it is one of the best. It is convenient to the freeway and has a great staff. They are always polite and recognize repeat customers. The breakfast is decent and the rooms are comfortable. There are many restaurants nearby and a famous local breakfast diner and country music dinner house.

We stayed three nights and part of the coffee maker was missing, we never got coffee all three days. Breakfast was a joke all carbs. They had cream cheese but nothing... More

I am a professional woman and I worked in Bakersfield for sixty days and I stayed at this hotel, so I know it well. Earwigs and roaches, homeless people sleeping in the elevators, sagging beds and sad boring breakfast every morning. However, I good naturedly put up with it all. There is a security guard on the grounds, so I... More

I did not like how they took care of their problem once it was reported. Once I reported their error it continued through the next day of my stay. There is nothing more motifying then someone walking into your room in the morning with a key that the hotel staff issued to them.

Stay away from this place!! From the dirty unkempt grounds to the loitering "guests" smoking and blocking passage on the stairs to the band of roving unsupervised children running wild on the stairs making it difficult to unpack the car it went from bad to worse. The room itself was a nightmare! Outdated is only the beginning...We turned on the... More
