my over all experience here is a pleasant one. Price were great, especially for down town location. The rooms are pretty standard and clean. I love the little historic Mills behind the hotel. Thin wall, though, I can hear my neighbor pretty clear all night.

The girl at the front desk answered our call immediately and gave precise directions to the hotel. We were driving in a rain storm and needed to find the hotel in the rain at night, in an unfamiliar city. She was the best! We found the hotel exactly when we needed it, and she was very professional and caring upon...

One of the few disappointments with Best Western's Plus designation. Rating must be a carryover from another era. Neighborhood around the hotel is not good. Staff is careful to remind about keeping cars and doors locked. Wifi service was next to unusable and staff was not responsive. Message light continued to blink all night and staff advised solution was to...

I stopped there on my way to LA. It was clean but just little old. In the morning around 8:30 I woke up for a lot of loud noises from the hotel's employers: cleaners and repairs. Not far from the highway, 20 miles from the 5.

We stayed her during a conference. The room was very clean and the bed was surprisingly comfortable. The staff goes out of their way to make sure you are happy. The rooms have a coffee maker, frig and free hot breakfast. I will definitely stay here again when traveling to Bakersfield.

The hotel is very clean, and the rooms are newly renovated in a clean, modern and stylish fashion. Every employee there was so welcoming and genuinely concerned that we were...

Located in the heart of downtown, across the street from the Amtrak station, and Rabobank Arena. This property consists of several buildings spread over several acres. The hotel backs up to beautiful Mill Creek Park.
