The Hill House is one of the friendliest, most personably managed facilities we have ever stayed in. When it is within our range for a good night's rest, it is where we stay. It is quiet, off the beaten track and makes a wonderful night's stop-over and is PET FRIENDLY. The rooms are well maintained, updated and clean with interior, secured hallways. Each room has big flat-screen TV, refrigerator and comfortable beds. The area surrounding the motel is clean and modern. The office staff is most helpful and courteous. They are available for helpful suggestions and friendly conversation without hesitation. The "continental" breakfast is much more than the typical coffee and muffin. Breakfast consists of fresh fruit, rolls, coffee, 3 types of juices, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, meat, and hot waffle. There isn't much more that you can ask for in a small hotel. This was our 4th visit to the Hill House and each time it has been very consistent, so it is dependable that a stay will be pleasant experience. To the owners and staff...thank-you for making us feel welcome each time. We'll be back!

We were just passing through Bakersfield for one night and made reservations to saty here. This is a pleasant hotel. Quiet and normally appointed room consistent with other Best Western Plus hotels. Breakfast was good and the buffet was not overrun with children gone wild. We would stay here again. Finding a restaurant nearby late in the day was a little problematic. Ended up driving back to the west to an area with more restaurants.

We stayed at the Best Western Plus Hill House while in Bakersfield for a square dance convention and were very pleased. It is located just a few blocks from the Kern County Fairgrounds where the dance was held, so it was very convenient. The area immediately around the hotel is quite modern and nice, and there were plenty of eating options nearby, although we had to drive to them. The hotel was very comfortable and well maintained and the staff was extremely friendly. Our room was clean and quiet and we were able to sleep well. We liked the fact that the sink and vanity were outside the toilet and shower area, so one of us could shower while the other used the sink without being crowded. The lobby was quite nice and comfortable as well. The included breakfast featured scrambled eggs, sausages, and waffles as well as a few donuts, and the breakfast area was clean and spacious, with an overflow room available when needed. The staff was very friendly and helpful, from the front desk and breakfast attendants to the room maids. The only problem we had was that we had trouble with our room key unlocking the outside door to the building on a couple of occasions. The lighting in the room was not as bright as we would have liked, but it was definitely satisfactory. One strange thing was that when we called the hotel directly for our reservation they could not match the price we got on the AAA site, but we had no trouble with them accepting the reservation through AAA and we were able to save about $10 per night. We plan to attend the square dance convention again next year and will stay here again. The BW Hill House met or exceded our expectations and we would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

I have been staying here for the last 6 or 7 years after coming to Bakersfield for the last 20 and I have finally found a place to come back to after trying several other hotels. Not only is there the usual quality I expect in a Best Western but the staff here is very friendly and helpful. There is also a good Mexican Seafood restaurant next door. Compared with other locations including the other BW in town, this one is very quiet and peaceful and I find that to be exactly what I need.

This Best Western is in the heart of the Mill District in Bakersfield. It looks like the city has done some work to spruce up what would be an otherwise dicey neighborhood. The motel is very nice, though old, the rooms are very well appointed, clean, and quiet, it was warm so we used the air conditioner which was quite loud. The front desk staff was friendly and recognized that I was a Best Western rewards member, which was nice. The expanded continental breakfast can use some work...the oatmeal was in a crock pot and was not warm. Scrambled eggs were watery, there were three choices of cereal, apples and bananas, sausages, and one waffle maker, which people were waiting in line for. All in all, it was good value for the money.

Stay was all we have come to expect from a BW plus. The friendliness and helpfulness of the front desk was beyond expectations. The BW central reservations office had messed up my reservation and the customer service office was closed. NO ONE at the 800 number seemed willing to help. The front desk here went ahead and helped us, even though it was in no way their fault. They were also the friendliest staff that we have encountered in our travels. Would definitely stay here again.
