Reviewed August 1, 2013

The hotel has a convenient location, but the parking and the hotel itself is poorly laid out, with little signage to help direct you. There seems to be not enough staff for the size of the hotel, as everything requested required radio calls to/from staff members, and a longer-than-normal wait to get things accomplished. Staff members were friendly and definitely attempted to accommodate guest requests. The restaurant was of average quality, but was convenient. We didn't like the nightclub located within the hotel, which caused parking lot crowding as well as bringing in people who really shouldn't be wandering around your hotel. Given there was no security feature to prevent non-guests from accessing guest floors, this was a problem. Bass noise from the music was also an issue closer in to the club. We, fortunately, weren't impacted by that. Overall, it's an 'ok' hotel, but if there were another smaller, quieter hotel available, we would choose that over this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the club are much quieter

I recently stayed for one night at the Doubletree by Hilton-Bakersfield. The hotel was quite pleasant. Excellent service from the Front Desk to the Room Service staff. I must give thanks to Bill Murray assuring me about having my dog staying with us. He is amazing. Great to have a "pet-friendly" property in the city.

Perfect location for driving. Loved the water bottles and cookie at check-in.

Seriously some of the best Room Service dining available; priced right and serviced with perfection.

Its now tired, but doing its best.
One thing needs urgent attention however. The bar (which claims to be a club!!) is a dump, and worse they rent it out to clubs to practice line dancing and the like, while its 'open'. OMG!
I suggest they move the bar, maybe into the restaurant. This could really change things. It was so depressing I could not stay in the bar.
Else its ok.
FYI, the town is a good stopover location, but it does not seem to have anything going on there.

We stayed because of illness on the way home, and found this room comforting and healing... thanks! We have stayed here before and have been very happy both times. It's close to many great restaurants and shops and the staff is very friendly and helpful! The breakfast was great and the server was extremly friendly and efficient!!

I have just used this hotel with my family for an overnight stop on the way from Las Vegas to Sequoia National Park and was generally very happy with the level of service and value for money at this hotel. While the property is already quite dated and the rooms/food menu held simple, i had the feeling that the staff were doing everything they can to make us feel comfortable and were very attentive and responsive throughout. My HH Diamond status was immediately recognised and i was offer free cookies, water, internet and breakfast for my stay. Overall a nice experience!

Hotel OK for a stopover to sequoia national park. Food OK, breakfast buffet adequate. Ample parking. I would say, it's a good 3 Stars. Personell friendly, good service. Ice-machine on floor extreme loud.

I needed to find a place in Bakersfield and sent a message to a distant acquaintance on Facebook. She told me she had stayed here. It was lovely! Enjoyed it all. The warm cookie was a nice surprise and much appreciated. I was especially impressed when I told the check in people I needed a laundromat and she paged through a manual and handed me preprinted Google directions to the nearest one. Nice service.
