The Holiday Inn Express was our 4th Holiday Inn of our 3 week journey out west. We contacted the hotel directly at about 9pm while we were on the road and they still had rooms, though on a Friday night they weren't cheap. The location is good, not to far off Rt 99, and the lanscaping was well kept (though... More

Now this is how to make customers happy. I booked 2 rooms and stayed for 1 night with my wife,kids and in-laws in August 2008 as a stopover stay travelling from Yosemite to Palm Springs. It was simply perfect. We arrived a little early but our rooms were ready. Rooms were large with 2 double beds / 1 king as... More

Accomodations were very nice. The bed was very comfortable. The complimentary full breakfast bar was excellent. The only negative experience had to do with a problem with ants in the bathroom and having to endure the lingering smell of bug spray. Check-in was a little confusing since my online information indicated that I had to pay, in advance, with a... More

Stayed there for one night to see a concert. The restaurant was way understaffed, one waiter and one cook-on an evening when there was a concert next door and many people were looking for dinner before the concert. They were remodeling and had no TV reception for the night and the internet access was sporadic. All of the amenities that... More

Overall ok. Stopped on the way back from Yosemite (about 3' 15" away and about 1'45" from Universal in the other direction). Very comfortable beds and easy to find just off the motorway. Air conditioning works well and is needed. Breakfast adequate and considering the 5 of us had 2 rooms between us and with breakfast came to approx $160... More

The Holiday Inn Express in Bakersfield CA. is quite right for a night's stay. Quick off of Highway 99 the property is easy to access . Check in was very efficient (we had previsously booked a reservation via their website after consulting reviewers on Trip Advisor) and our room was spacious, neat and fully equipped including a refrigerator, microwave, work...

Had to make a trip to Bakersfield (no laughter, please) during the weekend of a huge event in town. None of our regular choices had anything available (Marriott Courtyard, Doubletree, etc). Luckily we were able to make a guaranteed no-smoking reservavion at this Holiday Inn Express. The room and bathroom were very clean and very well soundproofed, the bed was... More

I have stayed here several times. My mother-in-law lives nearby. I have never had anything but a very good experience. Everyone is profession and the value for the price you pay is excellent. Free internet, parking and breakfast and a nice clean room. It seems the less you pay for a hotel room(up to a point) the more you get.... More

A group of ten of us (all New Zealanders) stayed at the Holiday Inn Bakersfield for just one night as part of a much longer holiday. I was responsible for arranging most of the accommodation, and this was our first night in the USA so I was a bit nervous as to how it was going to shape up. One... More
