“Nice sized rooms, delicious complimentary breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Clean, nice sized rooms, helpful staff, comfortable beds, made this a nice stay. We stayed one night going through Bakersfield. We arrived late in the afternoon close to dinner.
They have a restaurant "lounge" next door that we were hoping to grab a bite at, being tired from a long day of driving. Found out it was only open for happy hour and karaoke later that evening. So be prepared to get dinner elsewhere.
One nice thing was the complimentary breakfast at the restaurant in the morning-were given tickets upon check in. Got our choice of 4 different breakfasts- Eggs, hash browns and the best sauasage patties I've ever eaten (cook's secret recipe) waitress was right!) and wheat toast, coffee, very delicious! Very nice staff!
The pool area and grounds around it, were beautiful with tropical plants. It looked very tempting to take a dip, but being so tired and having a long drive the next day, we had to skip it! Maybe next time!
Would recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: First floor room, no noise, got the oversized room, good choice

Cool hotel in Fillmore Utah. I couldnt have asked for more of a hoteel in the middle of nowhere in Utah. The staff was very nice, and the restaurant next door was like eating at home. I will stay there again on my next juant thru Utah

I've stayed here several times with a cargo rack attached to the back of my SUV. I never had a problem until Aug. 18, 2013. I had two suitcases and a full size memory foam mattress topper enclosed in a cargo case and wrapped in a tarp. This was strapped down with multiple straps and bungees. When I went to the car in the morning everything was gone. There was a security camera pointed at my parking space but the girl at the front desk said it wasn't working. Security is non-existent here and the police said they have LOTS of problems with the homeless in the area.

Another time we were on the bottom floor and kids were running and jumping off the beds above us for hours and until well past midnight. I called and went to the front desk several times and they did nothing about it.

This hotel is spotlessly clean, inside and out. A free, full breakfast in the attached restaurant is included in the price of the room. The restaurant is only open for breakfast, but there is a Denny's right across the street. I did not take advantage of the pool, but it looked clean and refreshing, and the surrounding area was nicely landscaped and well-tended.
There is some freeway noise, so I just kept my fan running all night. My room was nice and cool even in the summer Bakersfield heat.

The rooms here are outdated. They seemed clean at first glance but I think the pillow cases were not changed. On our second night we found a couple roaches above our bed. Also a friend has seen them in her room. They did let us switch rooms and offered to help with our stuff. The first room we had th air conditioning barely worked. They don't give a free breakfast to convention delagates either. The pool is big and the flora

is lush and tropical around it. Seems like a party motel.

Every time i stay here i regret it - never again. Needed remodeling years ago, everything is marginal including the staff. Old tv, old malfunctioning shower. Convenient location though. Holiday inn next time.

Nice, clean place, close to everything you need. Next door is the FABULOUS Buck Owens Crystal Palace, fantastic food & décor for a special place for dinner, or the Sunday Brunch is out of this world. Close to the freeways going North/South or EAST/West
