We drove in late, got a good room on the first floor corner. The folks in the lobby were pleasant enough, it's certainly a mom-and-pop operation - they were trying to catch a few winks in their room behind the front desk. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, there were plenty of pillows, the shower worked just fine, and there was a refrigerator in the room - the basics, but the basics were good. It was nice stay.

Stayed here for an overnight stop over its nice hotel microwave and fridge, The staff at reception was really friendly and helpful, vending and pop matchine is side by the office door. At the end of the day it was a clean and good room enough to sleep in.

Terrible service at front desk. Politely asked for a room for just me after a long day of driving. THREE different times she told me NO GUESTS!! Told me the third time I'd be kicked out with no refund if I had a guest. I actually had to tell her to stop telling me that and that I was offended. Somehow she had it in her mind I was going to have a guest and she was determined to stop me from skirting the extra 5 dollars that would cost. Ridiculous. I also asked for a AAA discount and she looked at me like I'm a fool and said "it's already $36.99 how much cheaper you want it to be?" Who says that to a customer???

Now onto the room! I understand a 1 star motel isn't going to be amazing, but this simply wasn't acceptable. Dirty disgusting carpets. More stain than normal carpet I'd say. Gym style shower...the bathroom basically just goes from vinyl to tile with a drain in the ground and that's the shower. No shampoo, no conditioner, NO CUPS!! They can't even give me a plastic cup for some water in the morning? Oh and there are no outlets by the bed so don't plan on charging your phone while using it. Worst motel 6 I've ever been to and I've stayed at quite a few.

p.s. I stayed on the back side of the motel and as I suspected...WIFI didn't work. Luckily I have a portable hotspot so I was OK but still. Huge sign out front says free wifi and half the place can't even connect. ridiculous

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I can assure that at our property we strive to provide our guests with the most comfortable stay possible. We are very sorry to hear the issues regarding your stay. We have addressed the issues with our staff members and are currently remodeling our property. All of the carpeting in the rooms is being removed and replaced with hard wood flooring. I would like to personally invite you back to our property in order to provide you with a much more accommodating stay than your most recent. Again, our sincerest apologies and we hope that you will give us another opportunity to better serve you.

Thank you,

We chose this Motel 6 because it was the closest to the Famoso Dragstrip.
Very friendly staff, clean room with a fridge and microwave, free WiFi and close to fast food chains and supermarket.
So what if the bed covers were a bit frayed and the carpet worn, if you can't put up with that spend more on a higher priced motel!

We stayed here in March on our way to LA. In fact, we stayed here last year and it was good then so we stayed here again. And the young blonde woman who had just started at nights last year was now on days so it was nice to see someone who I remembered and she was very friendly which makes our trip nicer. The room that we had was nice and we had no problems at all during our stay. I wish that it had been a little later in the year so we could have used the pool but maybe next year. However, the best thing about this motel is the fantastic coffee that they have - I don't drink a lot of coffee regularly so when we travel I usually have a cup or two. The coffee at this place is so good that I look forward to coming here again and even wrote the name of the company (Farmer Brothers) so I could check it out online when we got home.

My wife and I traveling thru Bakersfield, read the prior reviews and figured this was the better Motel 6 around Bako for a one night stay. Maybe it is, but still overall worst one we have stayed in for all time, many years. The bathroom fan was broken and it looks like for some time, not a big problem. Two bed room, non-smoking with the noisy A/C unit blows directly on one bed. Not their fault some prior guests smoke in the non-smoking rooms, but should spray them out. I learned from prior reviews, wear you socks and yes they turn black from the wood floors, not just truckers but the highway workers and others in construction stay there. The entire property smells of smoke, beer bottles and dog doo-doo. Now on the plus side, very low cost with senior discount. While the coffee dispenser is great, including the cup size, the coffee is lousy. We experienced some of the best Motel 6 mattresses here. So I guess, as they say; "You get what you pay for."
