The staff was good. The hotel grounds was ran down, numerious broken windows through out the entire place. A stench inside the room was greater than outside! Walls have not been clean since they opened? Scratched mirrors with a signature and a Skin Head symbol. There was blood spots on ceiling, walls, and furniture. There was no microwave. The shower...

Tire from driving over countless hours, I found this hotel right off the 99, and I got to say, the room was great for the price! It had full cable, clean sheets, noise was kept to a minimum, and free wifi. The following morning I went to go eat breakfast at a local restaurant just down the street. Coming back...

I took a look of one of the rooms early Jun 2014. There were lots of cock roaches around the sink. Besides this that room was in a terrible shape and filthy. On my way out I talked to some other guest who said that most rooms have bed bugs. Apparently the owner knows about it but still keeps renting...

My fiance and I were "hotel hopping" while we looked for a steady source of income because we had just moved down to Bakersfield. The rooms at the Best Economy were cheap, so we rented a room. The first room we stayed at was literally full of bedbugs and cockroaches, and we had to complain three times for them to...

I don't think I've ever stayed in a worse place! The smell was of feces and cigarettes and the broken AC had no cover. Roaches and fleas were visible and what I pray are spider bites ran up and down my lower legs after we left. Gross, gross, gross, Red nail polish (I hope!) stains were all over the furniture...
