We loved the laminate floors and the room was big enough that my wife and I could actually do a little personal exercise. I asked for a room upstairs and they gave us the one on the corner above the lobby- nice and quiet with no neighbors.The bed was pretty good- overall we will probably stay here again! For those...

Nothing fancy here. Not a bad night's sleep. Prices are about right, for what it is. It could use an update. It is a '60s style and feel. For this class of Motel, you pretty well get what you expect. A/C worked well and the water was hot. We did not use the breakfast, so cannot report on that aspect.

I have stayed here dozens of times on short work related travel trips. Clean rooms, pool, refridge, TV, free wifi, a few pastries, fruit and coffee/juice for free breakfast, easy check in, good frequent stay program, easy access to freeway, mall, fast food and several shops across street...major malls just a few miles west. Not a great family spot; mostly... More

The staff we met were great. But the room was minimally cleaned, the air conditioner controls were hard to read and there was no remote control for the television. Our room was close to Highway 99 freeway and there was a couple of times in the night that the Jake brakes of passing trucks woke me up.

We booked a room online and was surprised to find the room rate to be reasonable. As we're on the way to Mesquite in Nevada, thought it would be a good idea to break the long drive and spent a night in Bakersfield. The desk clerk was prompt and friendly on check in. We were assigned a ground floor room... More
