“It's What I Expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

If you are looking for an average, but newer, basic hotel in Bakersfield, this property fits the bill. The staff is friendly and helpful. I stayed in a King room that was spacious, but the bed was very firm and the pillows were lumpy and unforgiving - even the ones labeled 'soft.' The workout room was small. It contained two treadmills, a stationary bicycle and a broken elliptical machine. The restaurant was adequate for breakfast. I would have liked a room with a view. But the hotel location (next to a heavy equipment auction yard) did not help. The hotel allows smoking and we could smell the smoke in the restaurant - very unpleasant. Thank goodness for the helpful staff. They made our stay enjoyable.

As a smoker it's getting hard to find a place with smoking rooms even in Bakersfield. Because of family there I visit occassionally and have never been happy with the places I usually find to stay at. When I came across this Holiday Inn on the internet thought I would give it a try. Decided to upgrade the room for a little more comfort. I was actually surprised when I arrived, it seemed much nice that the picture they provided. I entered into a small living room with a small table and two chairs on one side and the other a very comfortable sofa and chair and a flay panel tv. A small hall behind it had a kitchen area with coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator. Across from it a nice large bathroom. At end of hall was bedroom with comfortable king bed, a chair and another flay panel tv. The hotel is in behind a small shopping center and there are several places to eat very close. For $107 a night including tax I was very pleased and will be staying there again.

We are never disappointed with this hotel and again we feel the same way. Yes there is smoke smell on the first floor but nearly every hotel in CA has that somewhere. We are Priority Club and Monday evening there is reduced price on drinks with free appetizers. We do like to eat in the cafe asit offers very healthy options for a nice price without leaving to eat. Our granddaughters live here so they love the indoor pool. There is a nice small exercise room. Everyone is friendly and Nicole, the new sales manager, visited with us today. We have stayed at Marriott and Hilton Garden Inn. We have stayed at other Holiday Inn products in the area but this is our favorite. We are always on the Priority Club floor. We have had a suite with queen beds, an executive king and a standard king. We find the beds comfortable, quiet rooms with all things working nicely. The decoration is very pleasing. We will return again because we love this property.

Room Tip: If you do not like the hotel cafe, there are many eating options within a mile of this property.

Travelling with our 2 small dogs, it's always a challenge to what kind of "pet friendly" room we'll get. This time room 104 - close to the back stairs and grass, spacious, spotless, bright and modern. We've stayed at this property before and again were impressed that even this close to major roads, it was quiet and we had a great night's sleep. Superb walking around "hotel circle". Too bad a continental breakfast is not included - waiting for service and for breakfast to be cooked was too long & added expense. Will get a McSomething next time. Only negative was the overwhelming smell of cigarette smoke in the hall and at the back door.

Stayed one night in a suite. This room had two queen beds, a living area with a queen sofa bed, a chair and a coffee table. A counter with a sink, microwave and coffeemaker was just in front of the bathroom. There's a pool and a gym. Breakfast was good and service was excellent.
Overall, the room was comfy and clean and the staff was friendly.

The staff was very friendly over the Thanksgiving holiday even though they were there working instead of celebrating with their family. Room service was expedient and tasty. We used the gym and were pleased to find two treadmills and an elliptical. There is an indoor pool that looked inviting, very clean. We used the restaurant and found it good and the staff accomidating for food allergy substitutions. We were very satisfied with the stay at Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites.

Room Tip: Ask for the room near an elevator.

I found the hotel quite comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and included sofa with coffee table. The water pressure in the shower was only moderate. The property is located near the main freeway and there are plenty of restaurants nearby. USA Today was at the front door in the morning. Not certain about breakfast as not included into the rate.
