“Fresh and sparkly here in Bakersfield”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Grrrrreat Motel 6!! The furnishings were so new that it looked like a motel showroom in there. The wall paint was bright and clean, the bed linens and curtains were new and crisp. There was a mini-fridge that was really FRIDGid - food was super-cold the next morning. This is another motel that has made the excellent decision to ditch the shabby, smelly, stained, hard-to-keep-clean carpeting for a wood veneer floor. SO much better than the old way! The motel was pretty busy the night we were there, but we didn't hear much from other rooms. It was a comfortable night, and a pleasure to be in such clean, fresh surroundings - and for a bargain price. I highly recommend this Motel 6 if you are passing through Bakersfield. Heck, I'd even recommend going a bit out of your way to stay here!

It was with some anxiety that we booked a hotel in Bakersfield, as our previous experience at a hotel in this town had been less then optimal. However, Bakersfield is a good stopping point on our way to Yosemite/Sequoia/Kings Canyon national Parks. The motel was nice enough. It looks like it has recently been renovated, and there was no carpet on the floors, so a huge plus in terms of cleanliness. The price was good for the quality of the hotel. However, I don't understand why smokers are allowed in non-smoking rooms. Our room, as well as smelling of fresh paint, also smelled of smoke - why allow smoking inside when it reduces the quality of the experience for your next guests? Also, please don't let the cleaners knock on people's doors before checkout - it's really annoying and happened to us TWICE in one morning.

Room Tip: I imagine, since there is no carpet, that the ground floor rooms are much noisier, so try and pick a...

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.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

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

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.

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!
