I've stayed at this hotel a few times before and will likely do so again. This is a conveniently located, newish hotel, north of Bakersfield, by freeway 99. The front desk staff is always friendly and accommodating. The rooms have always been clean, quiet and comfortable with terrific beds and pillows and shining new, clean fixtures. The complimentary breakfast is OK. The only thing that needs to be fixed is the use of styrofoam plates, bowls and plastic forks/spoons. I know they are less expensive but do need an environmentally friendly alternative update. Other than that, this hotel has never disappointed me and I plan to stay here again.

We were passing through and only stopped for one night; the rooms were very clean, the hotel was quiet and the staff was extremely friendly. Conveniently located near the airport, I would stay here again.

This hotel looks nice online but pulling up its in a very weird spot and has a weird entrance. The staff that checked me in wasnt friendly at all, the hotel itself was hot inside and there is only one elevator you’re always waiting on. The room itself was alright but it was warm and the AC didnt make a difference. The people who stay here look like they are up to no good, its a pretty sketchy place. I didnt even feel safe leaving my car outside.

We stayed just one night last February. Service was quick and friendly. It’s still new enough for everything to be fresh and modern, and in good shape. It’s also new enough that it feels kind of in the middle of nowhere – it’s very close to the airport but there’s not much around. The whole property felt rather stark and exposed, though not unsafe – more like they could use some big trees. Although it’s close to the freeway, we didn’t hear a lot of noise from it. Our double queen room had just a single sink and acres of counter space. No minifridge, which I missed, and the obligatory Keurig (I prefer a regular coffeemaker). Beds were comfortable, and the room lighting was decent (a rarity these days). The included breakfast off the lobby was pretty comprehensive: scrambled and boiled eggs, cinnamon rolls, waffles, yoghurt, juice, hot & cold cereal. But although the lobby is large for this size hotel, even at 7am there was nowhere to sit and eat – they need more tables or something. I ended up taking a plate back upstairs. So, a little pricey for Bakersfield, but not bad for a speedy stop.

JenAzz, Reading your nice words on our beds and service is very encouraging. But I'm disappointed at the same time as your stay was only average because of the issues you had with our rooms, amenities and breakfast area. Our aim is to provide a trouble-free experience, and what you described certainly fell short of that. I've shared your review with the hotel, and I'm positive that they'll take steps to ensure similar situations can be avoided. Thank you for being our guest and for choosing to stay with us! We hope to accommodate you again for chance to provide you with a much better experience. Best regards, Joel A Case Manager IHGService

I've stayed at this Holiday Inn twice. During my first visit (in 2017), I was pleasantly surprised by the new rooms and friendly front desk staff, who called my hotel phone to offer warm cookies. I was unpleasantly surprised during my second visit by what smelled like a combination of cologne, vomit and cleaning agent emanating from the bathroom that persisted throughout the night even as the fan was kept on. I was refused a new room because the hotel was "completely booked" despite Hilton's own website showing availability, the parking lot being almost empty, and nary a room light visible from outside the hotel. I'd be surprised if there were more than 20 guests staying at the hotel that night. I got the real story from a different front desk employee, who informed me that housekeeping was short staffed. I'm assuming housekeeping did not have the time or simply did not want to prepare another room, which is somewhat understandable but I could've done without the cover-up story. 3 stars because our first stay was great, but consistency counts.
