The Holiday Inn Express (Bakersfield) is nicely appointed with a concerned, attentive staff. Upon checking in, we asked about restaurants in the area and received a detailed map with a list of recommended restaurants including those within walking distance. Our room had all of the expect amenities and met our approval for cleanliness, etc. One detail I noted was that... More

We had a 3rd floor room on the east side that was very clean. My only 'complaint' about the room was the difficulty getting the TV to respond to the remote somewhat faster (it got rather frustrating!). The breakfast was just fine (It's a serve-yourself set-up) with warm and cold cereal, warm and hard-boiled eggs, differing breakfast meats, a pancake... More

I stayed here going and returning to and from Las Vegas. I like the location of this property better than the other two HI Expresses in Bakersfield. The other two are in a busier area and closer to the freeway. The staff at this hotel have been courteous, friendly and helpful. I requested a room on the 4th floor (top... More

We have stayed here before when visiting friends in Bakersfield and were pleasantly surprised on this visit with the renovations done last year. Our room was very clean and new feeling.

Stayed at hotel for one night while traveling. The front desk clerk was very friendly and efficient. Good location for staying one night as we were passing through. Be aware that there is a train track close by and when the train is blowing its whistle, it gets quite loud in the hotel room. Room was very clean and comfortable.... More

A cheery staff welcomes you and it only gets better from there. This place is very clean. My room was really good and I slept well. A freight train sometimes comes through during the night and wakes you up but that's ok. It's not the hotel's fault. This is a very nice hotel and I'll be back soon. Stay here,... More
