“Average hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Amenities are thin at this Bakersfield hotel. No elevator, no breakfast, and small gym. There are many restaurants around if you want to walk a bit or drive. The pool and hot tub are nice and the rooms are clean. I would recommend this hotel as a great business trip stay.

I had a really wonderful stay at this Four Points. I can't quite put my finger on why I found the property to be so charming, but I did.

Maybe it's the nicely landscaped grounds, or the wonderful pool area, or maybe because the rooms were especially large and very well appointed. Maybe I'm just a huge sucker for the working oil pump they have on the property! Who knows?

Whatever it is, you'd probably be hard-pressed to find a nicer hotel of this type in the area.

We often stay at Four Points by Sheraton in Bakersfield and have never been disappointed. The rooms are large, very clean and comfortable. We especially like the rooms in the 500 bldg because they're near the fountains. The ONLY reason we're not giving the motel '5' stars is because on our last night stay (Oct 1st) we could hear clearly EVERY word our neighbors were saying. Our room had a connecting door and that may have been part of the problem. This has never happened before and we don't expect it to happen again. The front desk switch us to a much quieter room on the same floor. Not to much of a hassle.

The gardens, pool and sitting areas are delightful and very clean! They even have a bin near the pool with extra dry towels and a bin to place your wet ones.

Reception is friendly and helpful. The on site Bistro restaurant is open everyday for breakfast at 6:30am. They are also open to serve lunches and dinners on weekdays. The food is good, the prices average. If you want a quick bite to eat ..nothing fancy, this is your place.

I stayed here recently when our air conditioner broke in 100+ heat. We stayed two nights on the weekend in two different rooms. Both rooms were clean and spacious. Only one chair in the room makes it difficult to watch TV together but we survived. The pool is large and has a jacuzzi plus a nice covered patio area to sit with friends and family.
Good place to stay with lots of restaurants to choose from in walking distance.

After a week of hotels not living up to expectations this was a much needed night of sleep. My room was very quiet and comfortable. My only beef was the Internet was really slow. Otherwise, I will return

This is one if the better hotels in bakersfield. I've stayed in most of them and for the most part all the hotels are old. This place is no exception. Why is this place better? The location and cleanliness. The housekeeping is outstanding. I stayed here for a week and was by myself initially. I had 2 beds and 3 sets if towels for 3 people. My family stayed with me midweek and the housekeeping adjusted the towel count and gave extra water bottles. Nice adjustment and thought to the housekeeping crew.

They are one of the few hotels that give free water bottles. It may not seem much but you do not want to drink bakersfield tap water! It goes a long way.

There's also free wifi and breakfast. An on-site restaurant called the Bistro is here. The location of the hotel is smack in the middle if all the stores and restaurants. Across the street are tons of places to eat. McDonald's, Carl's jr., chick fil a...even ethnic foods like Thai, Vietnamese and sushi are very near.

My only beef is that the lobby that has breakfast isn't convenient to get to for everyone because if the unique setup for rooms. It's as if it was a renovated apartment complex. There are separate structures for rooms and they are 2 floors each. U need a key card to get in the building and you need to climb stairs if on the 2nd floor. This setup means there is no centralized lobby so grabbing food before work is inconvenient for some buildings.

Tip: use priceline's "name your price"

We spent a few days in Bakersfield and the Sheraton was perfect. The gardens and pool area were lovely, exceptionally clean throughout. If you can try and book a patio room as this allows you to sit outside in the gardens. Also, the on line booking system will give you the option of a full american breakfast, for 2 people this was $10 bucks extra and well worth it. Shopping and restaurants close by - easy to find. Quite at the weekend as the hotel is based in the business district. Would highly recommend and our thanks to Tracy, the hotel manager.

Room Tip: Go for a patio room if you can and if booking on line, go for the breakfast package which will give...
