I travel for a living and I am the owner so cover all my own cost. I look for cleanliness, cost, service. This is the best deal with the nicest people in all of Bakersfield. They will accommodate and try to please.

Booked one night's stay via Expedia in August 2011 on the way from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Hotel proprietor was viciously rude. His appearance and demeanor was more reminiscent of a bullying street hobo hustling money than a professional manager. For $50 and two stars I wasn't expecting the Wynn Las Vegas, but I was expecting common manners and... More

Before making a reservation here I checked reviews on several sites. I wasn't expecting the Four Seasons, but I expected a clean and quiet room and to feel safe. We were traveling with our large dog (not a typical traveling arrangement for us) so hotel options were limited. 1) Girl working behind the counter charged my credit card wrong. She... More

Every effort is made to make sure every guest has an enjoyable stay. While we try our best, sometimes things don't work out the way we want them. The front desk agent that checked this guest in made a mistake and entered $9 instead of the actual amount to charge. She was new, and got flustered. The correct amount was... More

I have stayed at this hotel 5 times in the last 5 weeks, and i had the best experiences each and every time.. The owner Ronie and his family are very accomodating and really take the time to greet and get to know you and are personable with the tenants, and make you feel right at home and like family.....

The people that wrote this review were trespassing in the early morning hours, after the pool was already shut down. They were not guests here, they came on after closing time, and were using the hotel pool, without authorization. More

Stayed here for one night after reading good reviews. It's old hotel with room doors facing outside so going from car to room is easy. You can hear the cars and people from outside. There were some people outside hanging out. I didn't feel safe at first( I get scared easy) but nothing happend. Slept great until someone started up... More

I had to get a room at the last minute and decided to stay here. I booked a queen room and upon arrival I was informed that they only had smoking rooms. I was ok with that since it was my fault I had made the same day booking and the price was low. However, they were nice enough to... More

I was sent to Bakersfield for work in June and July. I stayed at the California Best Inn because it was recommended by a Co-worker. After the first week I went to look at rooms at six different local hotels to see if there were any better deals around. What I found was dirty rooms, unfriendly staff, and questionable guests...
