“Actual hotel is nothing like the official picture on web site”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Just a word of caution, this hotel isn't in the greatest area, plus it seems to have a lot of transients staying there. Also fast food restaurants are right up against the small parking lot, so the hotel is kind of squeezed into a small space (although one good thing about it, it's handy if you're hungry ;). They serve a continental breakfast starting quite early, around 6 AM. My room was clean (altho the carpet was dirty), and so was the bathroom. Points off for having a bedspread that had burn holes in it, plus areas of the wall that needed to be repaired. Doesn't take much to slap on some paint. Also the "first" floor of the hotel is actually a parking garage - the hotel's rooms are on the 2nd and 3rd floor. All in all, I'd give it a 6 out of 10. It's ok for a quick in-and-out type of stay; the rates are good. Would I stay there again? No.

Room Tip: Bring earplugs. I always bring them to hotels - I think that since the open parking garage is under...

The staff and rooms were very nice like a throwback to another era like the 70's. The rooms are clean and well equipped with coffee maker, microwave and fridge. They have a pool and spa. The front desk was pleasure to deal with. I would recommend this hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

I used a Roomsaver coupon to get a $45.99 rate on a weekday night...one of the best deals I've come across for Bakersfield. I've been to maybe 20 different properties here in as many years and this one quite good, especially when rate is factored. Room was large, nicely appointed, clean and quiet. It's very close to freeway access and many different restaurants. Check in lady was very sweet and helpful. There are many budget outfits in Bako that are poorly run and cost more. I'd stay away from Buck Owens Blvd. Those places get beaten to death and there are no good restaurant options (except the Crystal Palace - which is worth a visit).

It's been noted the breakfast ain't much...but at this rate, I wouldn't expect more.

Room Tip: Rooms along Real Road will get more freeway noise.

The room was large with plenty of room for luggage and things, and it was clean. The refrigerator didn't work at all, and therefore the things we needed to keep cold were spoiled and had to be thrown out. It was reasonably priced so it was okay for our one night stay, but I wouldn't recommend a longer stay.

Our room was okay, and clean, but the breakfast was very minimal (Sunny D instead of orange juice!) and quite low quality compared to the other Choice Inns we stayed in our trip (we had six Choice hotel stays on our recent trip so we had lots of direct comparisons). I think they would be better off not offering a continental breakfast and just calling it good). The staff were very nice and helpful and we liked the undercover parking.
