Made a late evening reservation through Trip Advisor, Booking.com, and the night clerk was so nice! The rooms are all new now, although they are still working on the place. It was noisy downstairs because all the rooms have hardwood floors. .stay upstairs if you don't have a lot to drag with you. The beds are nice and firm, 18"... More

My wife booked this hotel at the last minute in our trip to Yosemite. I wasn't expecting much for the price. However, we were gladly surprised. They are remodeling the place and rooms look really nice now. (See pics). Everything is brand new. TV set, hardwood floors, lamps...I mean everything! The room was clean and BIG. What a nice little... More

We stayed one night on June 19th, 2015. The rooms have been completely remodeled! And there huge! Not a bad little place of the price. I will keep this one on my list if I am ever in need of a room again when in the area. The only cons I had about it were.....the bed was hard...brand new but... More

Just about everything about my stay here was great. They were just going through renovations so there were a couple things that needed fixing but they were small. My smoke detector was sitting on the desk. The mattress still had the plastic on it....really hated that. Made for noisy sleeping. I'm sure they could invest in mattress covers. The faucet... More

The carpet could be shampooed and I could pick on other little things but the reality is we had a great stay. The maids did a tremendous job and customer service was surpassed by none. The rooms are very spacious and renovations are being done to make this an even more enticing place to stay. The energy around here is... More

Booked in for 1night,did not expect a palace for the price, but did expect a clean, fresh smelling room. The room was dark and dismal, the walls were filthy, as was the carpet, and the smell hit you on opening the door. We drove around and found another hotel, and returned to this hotel to inform the manager that we... More

We were told that our room was a nonsmoking room. But the minute you walked in you could smell that the room use to be a smoking room. As you looked around you could see cigarette burns all over on the furniture. And of course when you take a shower, you can really smell it. I don't know why motel... More

I stayed 5 days and it was quiet and noneventful, just how I like it! Good breakfast, friendly staff, spacious rooms and super super comfy beds. I will stay again. It is a little pricey at 59.99 for a double bed, as it is an older motel. But it is comfy and accommodating. Plentiful parking, on site laundry that closes... More

We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! Room rates were a bit higher than normal during your visit to Bakersfield, cause of the various events that were happening in town. We take great pride in our hotel and hope to see you again soon! More

We were on our road trip from Las Vegas to San Francisco and we had not planned any accommodations in the middle. This was our first stop and oh my! You definitely get what you pay for. This is one of the cheapest accommodations we have stayed at. We arrived a bit late and really needed a place to stay.... More

I am so sorry to hear about your unpleasant stay. Our hotel is an older hotel, but we are in the process of doing major renovations to the rooms. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the spacious room and beds with the fridge. I hope you will come again after our renovations are complete. More
