“Good Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

I stayed here for a wedding for two days in the end of september. The hotel was nice and clean. The rooms were somewhat generic and nothing special but clean and provided what we needed. The front counter staff always greeted us when we cam or left the hotel. The hotel is located next door to Rabobank arena. I would stay here again if i was in the area.

We stayed here for a religious convention which was next door. It was awesome. Convenient, clean and very customer service oriented. Having the restaurant in house made it so easy to not have to drive anywhere. We just parked our car and had a wonderful stay. Will definitely stay here again.

I have 8 pillows on each bed! And they are all good pillows. I am a traveling performer. When I need a hotel its for a place sleep and I'm looking for a comfortable bed. That's what's important. They have great beds here. The room other than that is very nice but the beds are their best assets.

Stayed December 2014

Bakerfield is not Paris…. or Las Vegas, but this is great value if you include the breakfast in your room rate or happen to be a mar riot gold or platinum customer.

Rooms are not huge but the shower is great and the beds are wonderful.

For under 100 on a weekend i thought is a great value...

Room Tip: ask for the side away from train tracks.

I stayed at this Marriott on two occasions, separated by a few days. I ended up getting two rooms that were directly across the hall from each other on the far east end of the sixth floor. One room faced north and the other faced south.

For a quick summary, I would stay at this Marriott again. The rooms were clean, the concierge lounge was nice, and the staff were very friendly. It was also close to a movie theater and restaurants. The Nines restaurant in the hotel was good too, though a little pricey. The pool was outdoors, which is fine most of the year, but it was a little cold for swimming when I was in town. The fitness room had lots of space, a couple elliptical machines, a couple treadmills, a couple stationary bikes, and a couple benches for free weights. Overall, it was a pretty good fitness room for a hotel. Finally, the wifi worked well and was complimentary.

There were only a few negatives. The biggest issue was noise. Facing north I was directly above the smoking area for the bar. I couldn't smell smoke, but I could hear the people outside whenever they were talking. When they got loud or laughed, I could really hear it. Facing south I could hear the train yard. It usually stopped around 10 pm, but up to that time it could be loud enough to wake someone up.

Room Tip: Try to stay toward the north center, or northwest side of the building

Only here for one night, but what a pleasure! The staff at check in were so friendly, they did everything to make me feel at home. Once I entered the room it was like being at home. Such a nice property with lots of parking in the rear of the hotel. I would recommend a stay here for anyone.

Room Tip: All rooms are good!

One night stay and had a comfortable room on the quiet side, away from RR tracks-any seasoned traveler knows to ask when checking in or better, when making reservations. Concierge lounge was average at night and breakfast was OK, but not as good as several recent stays at Marriotts. All the staff were helpful and friendly and concierge recommended a good local restaurant.

Room Tip: RR nearby, request quiet side.
