“Microwave”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

All things considered, I would not stay there again unless they instal a microwave. For that amount of money I expect it - and have had one in much less expensive rooms.
The 200 word policy makes me sorry I started this




Room Tip: Because there were no memorable events or service issues (good or bad) the lack of a microwave would...

I spend more time in hotels than I do at home for my job and I have spent around five months here in the last year. Rose and her staff have made me fill at home during my time staying here and the breakfast is quiet good.

I have stayed at this Best Western before. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the room very comfortable. I first learned of the hotel when I was reading about the Buck Owens Crystal Palace next door. It is very convenient.

Beautiful exterior with nice spacious rooms. Rooms were clean and all the expected amenities were present with exception of an extra blanket for the bed. Beds and pillows were extremely comfortable AND you can't beat the complimentary hot breakfast in their restaurant! Breakfast was delicious with several choices; waitresses were efficient and pleasant. We always stay at this Bestwestern - close to freeways and town.

We are repeat customers at this Best Western location over last three years. Service at check-in has ranged from poor with waits for service to very good (which is was today).
Older establishment that would benefit from room refreshing like minor wall fixes along with repainting. There is a nice pool area and courtyard if you can use it.

This hotel is conveniently located adjacent to Buck Owens Crystal Palace. It is an older hotel but reasonably well maintained. It is clean but could be updated. Make sure you make a reservation as it is the place to stay if visiting the Crystal Palace. It is especially busy on weekends.

Room Tip: Book a courtyard room - it is quieter and overlook the grounds that are beautiful.

We have stayed with you a few times since our teenaged grandson moved to Bakersfield with his Dad. We miss him SO much, and when we need a Tyler-"fix" we will always stay with you. Your garden and pool area feel like an island resort during the summer, and we all enjoyed our experience.
