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!
