Nothing frustrates a business traveler more than no internet wireless service. Despite hours of promises - no internet service in my room. I had to use the lobby. If the internet issue is remedied, this hotel is average at best. I would not stay here again.

Car broke down in Bakersfield and we were forced to stay overnight. We have stayed at the Vegabond south location several times in the past and they were only a half mile from the dealer that was working on our car, but they were full. We decided to give this location a try. LOTS of undesirables here. Right after we... More

I'm a truck driver and this place is great, terrific restaurants all around. Big truck parking, breakfast from 2 am!!!! And I must say the desk clerk Joann is excellent! Very professional and got me in to a room fast. She deserves a raise. I will be coming back and telling all my co workers about this place.

Stayed here for 3 nights while in town. This is north of town and a favorite of truck drivers and those either who are visiting prisoners at a local prison or were just released from prison (husband talked to one guy who was just released the day before). That should give you an idea of the clientele. Breakfast was substandard... More
