“Rank! Avoid this dirty place. There are nicer prison cells. AVOID”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

After reading the reviews we thought this would be a convenient place to stay on our road trip. The room was dirty & damp, the sheets were rank, the bathroom had not been cleaned in years, torn carpet and dirty furniture. Old and shabby I can cope with but dirty I cant abide. The best way to describe this place is a squat. If we had not have been so tired we would have drove on but as soon as the sun came up we left. They do not offer refunds. Avoid is my advise.

Room Tip: Avoid the motel

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

After a long drive from sacramento heading to San Diego my girlfriend and I arrived in the Bakersfiled area around noon ,were exhausted and needed a clean comfortable place to sleep for a few hours, we called nearly every hotel in Bakersfield area inquiring about early check in availability,before finding Famoso inn , no other hotel could accomadate us. Arriving at Fomosa inn we found the owers quaters and was immediately shown a room and allowed to check in at 12:15, granted there were not that many guest there on a tuesday after noon but the owner was very pleasant and accomadatiing, and we will stay here anytime we are in the area.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2009

After traveling southward from Yosemite and past Fresno on Calif 99 towards Bakersfield, we decided to bed down for the night and looked for a place in the valley, checking at two exits before Bakersfield. The first did not have any motels, but exit 44 did. At first, this motel looked to be about 60's vintage, and part of a small compound consisting of a Chevron station and a recently closed restaurant. The office was even relegated to the gas station, but we found the owners to be extremely polite and accommodating, even inviting us to tour a room, whose large size, high ceilings and immaculate bathroom we later enjoyed. Best of all was an enormous and internationally diversified satellite TV selection and a low price. Great location just off of Calif 44 in a cluster of trees makes it look like a pleasant lush oasis in this dry valley. Looks like the place once had a pool and a recently closed restaurant on the premises, but the gas station carries some fresh entree items. All in all, a hidden gem, especially with the fair price, and great hospitality of the owners.
