Stayed here on our way down to Palm Spring, after a long day on the road we pulled and checked into a room. The whole place looked like it could use a good cleaning. This is a very basic property and it did not feel safe. Lots of truckers stayed there so it was noisy with trucks coming and going... More

Very basic hotel room. Clean sheets, but everywhere else could do with a wipe-round. The receptionist was chatting with her friend while we were checking in, which felt a bit rude. The walls were very thin and I could hear everything going on outside, all night, resulting in terrible sleep. We didn't stop for breakfast, we just wanted to be... More

Clean rooms, good breakfast included. Not the greatest neighborhood so I wouldn't venture too far on foot at night. Good price for the area and a rewards system to get a free night after 10 paid nights.

I was very dissatisfied with the room . It was suppose to be a nonsmoking room but had obviously been smoked in before . So we checked into room left immediately after that for dinner . When we returned wasn't able to handle the smell so we went to tell them we wanted a refund but they refused and said... More

You can't beat the price! I enjoyed my stay here as I pass through bakersfield quite often I'm always looking for the vagabond. Cozy clean rooms recently remodeled and breakfast to go with it is absolutely a steal!

The billboards advertised one price but upon checking in it was $10 higher as the lower rate was for single travellers only. Room was really noisy with highway noise. A cockroach came out of one of the sockets.

This motel is primarily used by truckers and it looks like they might have long term residents as well that stay here. It's a place to stay for a night on your way to wherever it is your heading but I wouldn't plan on staying here any longer. It's pretty noisy considering the truckers schedules in/out all night long.
