Not the best, but possibly the only option in this immediate area. Rooms and facilities are fairly nice, seem clean. Shower heads are a joke- they are the kind you can adjust from "shower," "stream," "jet" etc. There is certainly not enough water pressure for anything, barely to wash my hair. You will hear sounds through the walls, and we were not able to get any internet in our room at all. There are 3 tables crammed into the breakfast area, and when enough people are around, it is CRAMPED. People were sitting in random chairs and by the computer desk just to eat. Also, every time someone tried to use the toaster, it tripped the breaker and everything else shut off, including the tv. I asked the front desk about it but they didn't seem too concerned. All in all, not impressed!

Stayed: November 2012, traveled with family

The location was great, right off the 5 freeway. Perfect place to stop for the night. And the rooms were clean. However, we heard the freeway as if the trucks were plowing through our room. Plus we heard a screaming baby in the room next to ours and the entire room shook everytime someone walked down the exterior steps from the 2nd floor. Did NOT get a good night sleep at all. And to make matters worse, the shower water pressure was dismal.

A good place to stop, close to I5 but sound proofing is good. Very nice friendly staff, basic buffet breakfast, good coffee. Beds are comfortable, nice linen and fluffy towels Close to I Hop, Jack in the box and expensive gas!!

The rooms are presentable, except for the freeway noise and the ferocious stockyard smell. If you can drive farther before stopping, you would do well to do so. I was offered an end room opposite the checkin counter, but traded it for another when I found freeway noise unbearable. The second room was a little better, but still very, very noisy.

Room Tip: closer to the entrance=farther from the freeway, but all the rooms have freeway noise.

We were disappointed with the location because we wanted to be closer into Bakersfield and this motel is 20 minutes away from where we needed to be, however it’s close enough to I-5. One of the biggest problems is that the area around the motel is country farmland which means farming. I’m aware of manure being used on crops and what also comes with manure, odor & flies. Seems that we had this unpleasant odor to deal with as well the large number of flies in the room, during the night I had to kill three crickets as well as all the flies earlier.

The king sized be was comfortable and the room was clean but outdated. It was a little noisy at times however not a problem. The breakfast area is small and when I went there in the morning the house cleaning crew were sitting around at the tables. I wasn’t impressed with the continental breakfast and the layout so we went to the Ihop next door. Not much to choose from in the area if you want a meal.

My biggest disappointment was the rural locate being 20 minutes away from the city and the bugs in the room.

Room Tip: Be aware that this motel is in a rural farm area 20 minutes from Bakersfield.
