The staff here was exceptionally friendly. Always professional and courteous. The room i had was dated and showed heavy use. It was also a bit dirty. There was a wad of hair inside the toilet when I checked in, and hair in the tub. A coworker staying in a lower floor had a large bug in her room and was...

Great vibe, central location, extremely clean and very friendly staff. I was traveling with the entire crew from work and we all loved the place. Everyone from the front desk staff, the bar staff and the house made the visit enjoyable.

The hotel was clean and amenities comfortable. The staff was wonderful: friendly and attentive. Now the not so good. My room on the 6th floor was drafty. I turned the heater to 78 degrees to keep from being cold (in California!). I don't watch a lot of tv which it turns out is good as the low definition TV set...

Stayed here because I was working at the convention. The commute to the convention center was obviously ideal however parking was terrible. Hotel restaurant is not worth the wait, and by wait I mean hour long wait on Friday nights. Also do not get the "buffet" it's just a tiny salad bar. Talk about taking liberties in using the word...

Thank you for your recent visit and your post. We are truly fortunate to be so conveniently located adjacent to the Convention Center. I am truly sorry for the inconveniences you encountered during your stay, we typically attempt to block parking for everyone staying with us as well as attending conference held at our hotel.

There aren't a lot of safe, decent places to stay in Bakersfield; however, this Marriott does not deserve a solid review simply because there are no other acceptable places in the area, as it does not live up to the Marriott reputation. The entire place seems old and falling apart (much like the rest of Bakersfield). I was expecting at...

This is my second stay at this property in 6 months and this time I was upgraded to a suite. The person who checked me in, Sara, was the only positive experience I had while staying at the property.
