“Good Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Full breakfast ordered from limited menu. It was good and the eggs were cooked perfectly. Only one sink in bathroom. We had the upgraded room with frig and it was a little larger than the regular rooms. Nothing fancy about the room, but clean. Bed comfortable.

This hotel was very nice. I think we had a newly renovated room (got a glimpse of some with outdated TV's, mine had a flat screen up on the wall). The room had a sliding glass door to the outside, right by the pool and our truck. Also, right next to the breakfast area. It isnt just a plain old breakfast buffet, it is an actual little diner, with servers to take your order and everything! Very nice touch, I loved the personal attention. The location is nice as well, right off of the 99 freeway, and by the 178. Right in the parking lot is a gas station, down the street is Arby's and Ihop, and right across the street is Dennys. The beds were SO comfortable, I have never stayed at a hotel where the bed is better than mine at home!!! This place is right next door to the Buck Owens Crystal Palace, unfortunately, we didnt get to go and look at the museum, but next time we will. The staff is very friendly. I would totally stay here again if I had the chance, and I recommend it to anyone :)

Room Tip: Ask for the room down at the end of the hall on the first floor, convienent to walk to pool, restaur...

This was our second stay this year, July 25th 2013, at Best Western Crystal Place Inn & Suites, Bakersfield, CA. This INN is very convenient at exit 26 on US-99, easy off / on to the freeway. This is a large facility with nicely matured landscaped grounds surrounding a large pool. This is an older facility that has been up-dated and is exceptionally well maintained.

Our room was very clean and on the second floor. Both of our stays we have had rooms which face the frontage road as well as the 99 freeway and not the inner court pool area. We have not heard any noise from the street, freeway, or parking lot on either of our stays. The beds are comfortable and we have had good night’s sleep. The TV's are not "Flat" panels but work just fine and they have an extensive list of available programs.

The hotel staff has been attentive to our needs towels etc.

The free breakfast is provided via voucher to the restaurant next door for a limited menu full service meal. You should not go away hungry. Breakfast is available from 06:00 AM which is a plus for travelers like us who like an early start.

There is a Denny’s across the street, an Ihop around the corner as well as a couple of fast food places all with-in walking distance.

We have stopped here as our last stop from home after some extended trips north and have found it to be relaxing after a long days drive and long journey.

Note: At high travel times advance reservations might be a good idea.

Check the travel magazines for a coupon, it can be a good savings and was cheerfully accepted

very dissapointed with the room odor/noise, and the shower pressure. Our complaints were taken very lightly we left extremely exhausted didnt get very much rest either nights! Pool water was dirty you can see oily rings in the water even at night! Thank God that the maintenance man was out and about and gave us pool towels otherwise we would have not had any! They should be on a shelf or something!

I was satisfied with the room and the hotel. I do wish that we were told that breakfast was not complementary as this was a surprise to us at check out. when we checked in we were told that breakfast was from 6-9 so it was stated as it was complementary. we ate there all the days we were in Paris instead of going to quaint cafe's to have coffee and breakfast. Also I would have like to have been notified that the hotel was under construction so I could have made a decision to keep my reservation or go to a different hotel. We could not open our doors or windows because of scaffolding and we could not sleep in due to the workers at our windows.

This location is very convenient for a night stay when traveling. The pool here is great, and is situated right in the middle of the courtyard. The best perk is their breakfast. The on site restaurant is where you go, and you have a choice of 5 breakfast items. Made to order. Great deal that is included with your stay. I will definitely come here again.
