“Nice Hotel and location for Bakersfield.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

BUT, watch out for the Crackheads and thieves that break into cars on a regular basis in the hotels and adjacent businesses parking lots. My car was broken into in the 5 minutes I left it in the north parking lot. All my luggage and any thing else not nailed down was gone. The rooms and hotel are nice, and a great location. However, do not leave any items in your car for any amount of time. Even just the 5 or less minutes it takes to check in.

Room Tip: Which ever side that your car is on. So you can watch it. They have camera's in parking lot. But...

Dear Guest:
Thank you for taking a minute to share your experience with us. We appreciate hearing from you.
I am so sorry your items were stolen; we do our best to ensure guest safety.
When theft incidents happen, we feel your loss. The Hotel(s) in the area work together to keep the "Unwanted" away.
We instruct our employees to take frequent trips around the parking lot, we ask the shuttle drivers to drive around properties and there is always the Law Enforcement that helps with frequent drive through.
Please know that we care about your stay and the impression we leave on you.
We hope to have you back, and you’re welcome to request a room near your vehicle.

While a good price, being put in the end room by all the freeway traffic, along with the noise that we heard every time the doors shut in other rooms, made our room rather noisy. The grout in the bathroom was quite dirty, and the tv picture had a white line down the middle that was quite annoying. On the plus side, the room was very large (because it went around some type of utility closet in the hall) over to the end window that let in all the traffic noise. There was room for a small table with two chairs, a loveseat, and a dresser, along with the regular computer desk and tv console/dresser in front of the bed. The toilet and bathtub were in a small square room, while the sink and mirror were just in front of the door. I asked for a queen bed, but this room included a comfortable king. So while we had a larger room and bed, I would have preferred a smaller quieter room with a clear picture on the tv. On the plus side, was the included breakfast - if you like biscuits and gravy!
If you wanted to walk to lunch or dinner, Red Lobster and a fast food hamburger place were adjoining the hotel.

Room Tip: Try to stay away from the east end by the freeway.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience with us! We like hearing from our guests.
Yes the Larger Rooms on the Freeway Side can be a bit Noisy at times.
I have asked Maintenance to look into the items mentioned so that the next guest will have a better impression of the room: Thank you for letting us know.
We do offer a Variety of Rooms Located throughout the Hotel, Including really "Quiet" areas.
Please let us know your preference while making your reservations and we would be happy to assign you to a quiet room.
Thanks so much for staying with us and for taking the time to share your thoughts and experience.

I made a recent trip to Las Vegas from the Bay Area and stayed at this hotel both going and coming to and from Las Vegas. This hotel is nothing great, but is certainly adequate. The rooms are fairly small, but the beds are comfortable and I got a good night's sleep. I would say this hotel is way above average for "quietness" as I did not hear any noise for adjacent rooms or the room above. There are plenty of restaurants close to this hotel and a Costco right next door for shopping and gas. The free breakfast was very good with hot eggs, hash browns and bisquits. Plenty of other choices also. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. I would stay here on another trip through Bakersfield.

The hotel is newly updated. I was on the 5th floor and there was a tournament in town. The staff did everything possible to see to the other guest in the hotel and make sure the noise level was kept to a minimum. The bed was comfortable and there was no funny smells like you get when you stay at these places. The breakfast needs a little work, but other than that it's great. The location is perfect to get to anywhere in town.

This property needs some major upgrading. It is old and tired looking. Room sizes are good but the scented cleaning spray is nasty. Shower is ok but spray nozzle is way too low (for a 6 footer).
HVAC control on the wall did not work. Breakfast was ok but the hot food was not even close to hot.. Will not stay here again.

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to express your thoughts about our property and your stay!
We are an "Older" property that is in need of some updating. Our Staff continues to bring the same "Great Services" despite some of our challanges.
Our Staff takes great pride in providing a Clean and Comfortable Stay for each guest and is upsetting when we know we were unable to provide that to you..
We hope that in the future, you will give us another oppertunity to serve your hospitality needs.

Best Regards,
Clarion Hotel Staff

When I checked in I realized the hotel property was very old. When I went to my room I turned around and left, explaining to the nice gal at the counter "I just can;t do it., it is too bad" The manager called me later in the day getting specifics to present to management. Lots of money needs to be spend on this property to bring it back to the standard of middle class travelers.

Room Tip: I decided not to spend the night here.
