A quick stop in at Bakersfield was just for one night, en route to Las Vegas. We were initially put in a smoking room, but the ladies at reception were able to switch us to a non-smoking room quickly and without fuss.
The motel is situated just off the expressway, making it easy to find and easy to get going again the following morning. The rooms were a little tired, but the bedding was clean and had all the amenities you could need, such as a fridge, microwave and coffee machine. The Wi-Fi, although free to use, was impossible to make work. It did seem to work on in the front lobby though, so I'm sure if you were desperate you could use it in there.
There are several fast food options across the road from the motel, but no grocer or supermarket. Continental breakfast is included, with coffee, juice, cereals and pastries.
Overall it was fine for a one night stay (and had a really cheap rate), but we probably wouldn't stay again.
