“Standard Motel Accommodation on Interstate 5”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We chose this motel based on its location to break a long journey through the state. I couldn't imagine it being a destination stop for anyone, but as an overnight stop on the way to somewhere else it was adequate but not a bargain. BWP delivered clean, quiet accommodation with good-sized motel room near the I-5 but away from the traffic. Only the a/c was a bit noisy when it came on in the night. All the gear a traveller might need was provided (e.g., hairdryer, free wifi, minifridge, microwave,iron, closet, ice machine). The hot tub was warm but the front desk clerk was unable to locate anyone who could get the jets to work. There was also a small pool but we did not use it. Dinner choices were limited to half a dozen fast food chain places a dark walk or short drive from the BWP. The highlight of the stay was the breakfast. It was better than expected with an extended continental format including scrambled eggs, waffles, and sausages. The caterer obviously cared about the food service at the BWP and provided a friendly face for the motel.

Room Tip: There is no elevator and there are 15 steps from the ground level to the second floor. If this woul...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Kettleman City is just a small cluster of gas stations and burger bars, with BW as one of the very few motels. The room was away from traffic noise (it looked out on to a blank wall close by), the beds OK, but the pllows were too stuffed to be comfortable. Bathroom fittings were rather worn and in need of attention. The breakfast selection was limited, but adequate. The main problem in the breakfast area was the very cramped space, not helped by two groups who had taken five of the tables for lengthy meetings and appeared not to care about the lack of space for other guests. Three of the eating places mentioned on the hotel's information had closed. OK and inexpensive for a one night stop-over.

We stayed here on way back home from San Francisco. It was ok for one night stay. Nice room with chair and very roomy. Micro/fridge, in room coffee, good wi fi and TV stations. Used the hot tub which was hot but not bubbling. Grabbed coffee, juice and yogurt at the breakfast and hit the road again. Would stay here again if in the area.

The staff was friendly and helpful, but the motel seemed to be understaffed. Unfortunately the motel itself was disappointing. The room door was very hard to open, sometimes requiring NFL-level blocking force; the satellite TV reception was awful and when I inquired about improving it, the concierge said she would get right back to me but never did. TV channels were very limited. We were especially disappointed that FOX was available but not PBS or MSNBC. The room corner table was missing and concierge asserted that it would be very hard to find another. We used the weathered poolside plastic tables instead. The hydraulics in the desk chair were shot, leaving the user at chin-level to the desk. Energy efficiency: no recycling and the maximum hot water was waay too hot; could be turned down to save energy and the motel $$. Air conditioner v noisy. Breakfast was great!! We still like BW but in future would stay in a bigger town, where we have enjoyed much better accommodations.

We called in with the hope of a room whilst travelling from Santa Monica to San Francisco at 10.00pm. Fortunately they had one available. The lady at reception was pleasant and efficient booking me in quickly and advising the location of the room. I was unable to unlock the door and returned to reception to ask for assistance she explained that some of the locks worked in the opposite direction and came out to show me how it was done. The room was very clean, tidy and spacious. Breakfast was acceptable.

Needed a break between San Diego and Napa and this did the trick. Nothing special but supplied a good bed, clean bathroom, wifi, and breakfast (hot and cold). Avoid the corner with the ice machine if noise bothers you.
