Courtyard Bakersfield
Ranked #21 of 63 Hotels in Bakersfield
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The people at this hotel were very polite and helpful, and the layout was a standard Courtyard you'd find anywhere else. This hotel is very convenient to the highway, great if you're passing through. The only downside is that it's located a few blocks from a recycling center, so depending on the wind/weather, there's a pretty foul smell outside. This does not affect inside the hotel at all, just outside in the parking lot.

Thank you Lawrencemon for your most recent post and stay at the Bakersfield Courtyard. You are correct in saying we are nicely located and have a great updated and renovated hotel. I have never heard of the issue of the recycling shop down the street but will look into it further.

Best Wishes,

The staff at this hotel is friendly and professional. Our stay was very enjoyable. Comfortable, cozy bedding, clean and functional rooms, and friendly, safe, areas for conversating with others are seen throughout the property. Standard Courtyard amenities, which we appreciate and enjoy were included. We enjoyed the updated lobby and bistro area which had great breakfast choices.
Great experience. We plan future stays here as well.

Loved this hotel. Came at the end of a long drive from Oklahoma and it was very convenient to the freeway. The staff were pleasant and very helpful. We love the new breakfast restaurant where you can get Starbucks and some real food in the morning. You have to pay for it, but it is much better than that pablum you get at Holiday Inn and after sleeping on three mattresses with plastic sheets on them at the Holiday Inn, we are switching our loyalties to the Mariott Suite of Hotels.

Room Tip: We stayed in their handicapped rooms where the toilets are regular size and not those short things t...

Stayed one night and wanted to take the bed and comforter home. The hotel is clean, comfortable, nicely decorated. We always stay at 5 star hotels but Bakersfield was just a quick stop on business. I found that this courtyard was as nice as places I spend allot more for and are 5 star properties

Really good hotel located useful for a one night stay over. However if you asked about whether any use for seeing Bakersfield I am afraid i in the dark. No awareness and never felt any coming .I suppose was disappointed their was no attempt to lure me into Bakersfield to see more . Really enjoyed the pool which was welcome even if the locals seemed to consider the weather was cooling - they should try England in September!

Thank you Larry M for your most recent stay at the Bakersfield Courtyard. Being just off the freeway and centrally located in Bakersfield, the hotel is great for a quick stay or even a week. Please know you can always check with the front desk or our GoBoard for local attractions. Please consider us again if you're ever in the area.

Clean, modern, good front desk experience. But where is the (free) breakfast? The Bistro is what they offer for meals. Choices look good, prices don't. The 'free' in room Internet is slow - you can up grade for a price. :( Would I stay here again? If price wasn't a consideration - definitely, but since it is (for what I'm not getting) - probably not.

The hotel is well located, just off the highway. It is nice and clean hotel , with friendly staff. The dining choice is not great but has the basics. Breakfast is not included which is the only downside.
