“Nice comfy bed and pillows”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

After driving all day from Phoenix it was so nice to get to the Courtyard and have a really comfortable bed with nice pillows to sleep on. My husband really enjoyed using the hot tub to unwind and relax after the long day. The property is very well maintained and it was good value for the money.

We were concerned when we parked our car, however, as they have signs up everywhere warning you that you are leaving your vehicle unattended is at your risk and they accept no responsibility for any damage to your vehicle or loss of possessions. I don't know whether they have a lot of thefts in this area but it really is disconcerting.

Very nice courtyard with bistro serving a variety of casual food. Nice seating area to enjoy it while watching tv. Clean and well appointed rooms. Excellent value. We will return when passing through again.

We arrived around 9pm on Thursday night for check in, minimal rooms available, we got a "king handicapped room" the shower was a walk in shower, was very clean, the room was cramped due to the king size bed. I described it to my husband that it felt like stuffing Shaquill O'Neil's shoes into an average sized shoe box, he laughed, other than that it was nice. I'd stay here again, the coffee was bitter.

Thank you Suzi B for your most recent comments regarding the hotel. Unfortunately, the layout of the accessible rooms are a bit different than our standard rooms, but I'm glad you got a good nights sleep. The bathroom in those rooms are larger and do have a walk in shower. Please note that Starbucks is available 15 hours per day in the lobby if you would like a different tasting coffee.

The people at this hotel were very polite and helpful, and the layout was a standard Courtyard you'd find anywhere else. This hotel is very convenient to the highway, great if you're passing through. The only downside is that it's located a few blocks from a recycling center, so depending on the wind/weather, there's a pretty foul smell outside. This does not affect inside the hotel at all, just outside in the parking lot.

Thank you Lawrencemon for your most recent post and stay at the Bakersfield Courtyard. You are correct in saying we are nicely located and have a great updated and renovated hotel. I have never heard of the issue of the recycling shop down the street but will look into it further.

The staff at this hotel is friendly and professional. Our stay was very enjoyable. Comfortable, cozy bedding, clean and functional rooms, and friendly, safe, areas for conversating with others are seen throughout the property. Standard Courtyard amenities, which we appreciate and enjoy were included. We enjoyed the updated lobby and bistro area which had great breakfast choices.
Great experience. We plan future stays here as well.

Loved this hotel. Came at the end of a long drive from Oklahoma and it was very convenient to the freeway. The staff were pleasant and very helpful. We love the new breakfast restaurant where you can get Starbucks and some real food in the morning. You have to pay for it, but it is much better than that pablum you get at Holiday Inn and after sleeping on three mattresses with plastic sheets on them at the Holiday Inn, we are switching our loyalties to the Mariott Suite of Hotels.

Room Tip: We stayed in their handicapped rooms where the toilets are regular size and not those short things t...

Stayed one night and wanted to take the bed and comforter home. The hotel is clean, comfortable, nicely decorated. We always stay at 5 star hotels but Bakersfield was just a quick stop on business. I found that this courtyard was as nice as places I spend allot more for and are 5 star properties
