“Good value near downtown Bakersfield”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

I stayed here earlier this week and found it to be a really good value with a great location near downtown. Like most Motel 6s the room was very spartan. So, make sure you bring your own shampoo, for instance. However, the room was extremely clean and had all the basics. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. For example, on the second night my door key stopped working and they were able to fix it in seconds.

There are also a lot of places to eat within walking distances and a nice Barnes & Noble across the street, which has a Starbucks Cafe and really good free Wi-Fi.

Overall, I had a good stay. However, I have a few minor complaints. Number 1, there were no Kleenexes in the room. (I had to make do with toilet paper.) Second, the Wi-Fi was so weak it was basically useless. What's worse, they charge $2.99 a day for it. Third, I was propositioned by a hooker in the parking lot. (Fortunately, I told her I wasn't interested and she left me alone.)

Still, I can definitely recommend them due to the location near the freeway and downtown, the price, the quality of the room, and the excellent staff.

WE stopped off here for one night when travelling through the area on the way to Yosemite. The location is perfect very close to the main highway and yet pretty quiet. The hotel offered reasonable basic accommodation for a very good price. This included free wi fi. A couple of reasonable earting houses close by and a great Barnes and NOble store with a coffee shop if you wnat to spend a few minutes browsing. This is not a swanky place (that is not what Motel 6 offer) but the welcome was warm anf the rooms perfectly adequate for a quick stop pver.

We live out of state & My mom had surgery. We stayed here for 6 nights @ $42 total a night & recieved excellent friendly service, the front desk & house keepers were amazing & so kind & friendly!
We stayed in the handi-cap room which was very convenient, also, Carrows was in the parking lot across the street which is pretty much like a Dennys & open 24hrs, Del Taco, El Pollo Loco, Java Detour, Mcdonalds & Sizzlers were all walking distance!!
And the StarPlex Theatre where they show $1.00 movies & serve $1.00 hotdogs was conveniently located one block away:)

Me and 3 of my friends stayed at this hotel and were very pleased overall. Don't listen to all the negative reviews. If you come in knowing what to expect like we did (No shampoo, only the necessary amenities) you'll enjoy it too. We only paid $38 for the night (I just turned 18 and it was the first time checking out a hotel) and it was an excellent stay for the money. Very clean, excellent location, quick check-in and check-out. The only thing that was a little off was how the pool was dirty, but it was probably clean when it was the summer. Still highly recommend and I will be staying at Motel 6's for the rest of my life if they keep this up.

P.S.: I am in NO way associated with Motel 6 corporately nor am I an employee.

My mother and I had driven from Oregon to Bakersfield and could not find a room that allowed our puppy. I called Motel 5, and always they came through for us. Thanks again Motel 6. Kim Jacobs

You definitely get what you pay for in this one. The room looked ok at first glance but then we noticed pubic hair in the shower and cigarette burns on the bed covers and in the bathroom even though it was a non-smoking room. When we noticed how hard the mattresses were we realized they were upside down and we had been laying on the springs instead of the padding. We decided to flip them and man was that a bad decision! One of them was covered in red stains and the other was covered in urine and had an odor so bad it brought tears to our eyes. Disgusting! This hotel was inhabited by many shady looking people. The staff was ok and the pool was pretty nice. Would never stay there again and defiantly never recommend this hotel to anyone!
