“Good Stay for the Night before Flying Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Our family of 5 stayed here on our last night of our CA vacation to Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia NP. Flights were cheaper out of Baskersfield and the airport is small and not very busy. The rooms were of decent size and were clean and the staff was helpful during our stay. The only drawback is they did not have shuttle service to the airport. There are several Marriott properties clsoe by and a few other chains so it would make sense to have a shuttle since this is where people stay to go to the airport. Something to consider for the future but overall a good place to stay if you are flying into or out of Bakerfield Airport.

Seems like I go to a lot of these hotels. At least I know what to expect. Clean. They have the bistros, which are ok. I had the oatmeal for breakfast one morning which was good. They had complimentary coffee and tea in the morning in the lobby which I appreciate. The room was good except the air conditioner didn't quite cut it. Although I have to be fair it was an incredibly hot weekend with temperatures near 105 degrees and we were on the 3rd floor. The bath towels were a little rough.

Room Tip: If it is hot I would go with a lower floor as AC's have a hard time.

This hotel resides among a group of hotels and I believe it was the better choice among them. The decor is very inviting and the rooms are clean, (mildew free) and comfortable. The bistro does a fabulous breakfast and the staff is very courteous. My business travel to this location was very nice and I will be returning to this location for my next trip.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Eastern side are better in the mornings.

Clean rooms with very comfy beds and nice TVs have persuaded me to be a repeat guest. So far my favorite business-class hotel chain. Staff are generally friendly and efficient with the occasional exception. The Newly decorated lobby is very nice but the Bistro is overpriced in my opinion.

This a hotel with no pretences. The service is excellent, the breakfast resto has a nice selection, including healthy items.

The lobby of the hotel is very nice with a well stocked mini-mart.
The rooms are nice and well attended to. My only gripe is that internet service is not included for free.

Thank you so much for the kind words. We are excited to have our renovation complete and the hotel sparkling for our guests. As a clarification, there is complimentary HSIA here at the hotel, but an option for upgraded service for a small fee. I apologize if you misunderstood, but glad to know everything else made your stay pleasant.

Wife and I wrapped up a week long trip here after picking up our college freshman son in Merced on way down, so we could attend a Darius Rucker concert playing here at the Fox theater. This property is in the middle of a renovation, so be advised there is construction going on in some of the areas. Our room was newly renovated and quite nice for the 3 of us....a courtyard balcony overlooked the pool and courtyard. There were some access issues due to the work going on, and some of the hallways were blocked off to thru traffic, so we'd have to find ways around to get where we needed to go. They have an indoor hot tub, which we enjoyed the morning before we left. The lobby is all newly done, as is the patio area, with nice furniture to sit and enjoy a drink with friends. There is a bistro where you can purchase food/breakfast. They do offer great coffee in the lobby at no charge. We got a great nights sleep here, and would return as the need arises. We do love all Marriott products at all levels they offer.

Stayed there as a platinum member of Marriott rewards. Could tell at check-in they had not reviewed our preferences. Tried to put us in ground floor when account asks for top floor. No extra towels or paper. The other issue was the noise. Adjoining room door caused noise from the room next door and the people were not talking that loud.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room that does not have an adjoining inside door.
