Holiday Inn Express Bakersfield
Ranked #14 of 63 Hotels in Bakersfield
Reviewed June 18, 2012

This hotel is okay for the price but somewhat less quality than an average Holiday Inn Express. I'll break down the pros and cons:

Pros: fairly inexpensive, polite staff, clean room, check-in and out were both easy.

Cons: lobby smelled like cigarette smoke, breakfast was mediocre (biscuits and gravy were both cold), located in a rather trashy part of town (view from our window was a ghetto looking trailer park).

No serious complaints, but no serious compliments either. If you have to spend the night in Bakersfield then for around $100 you can get a plain, passable room here.

I stayed here for 2 nights on the way to Vegas. Its close to highway I5/ CA50 and there are several restaurants located nearby. We had opted for a room with 2 queen beds. The room was spacious, and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was clean and well maintained. They gave us a $20 breakfast coupon.

In short its a decent place for overnight stay.

We stayed here for one night on the way to Vegas. We were welcomed with fresh warm cookies and shown to our room. We changed room due to a smell of smoke and the staff were very accommodating. The hotel is located just off the I5 freeway but is set back so there was no noise. It is located 10min from numerous fast food and convenience stores.

Stayed here for one night because the tour of California bike race was in town and there were not a lot of options. The location is a few blocks from Hiway 99 but my room did not seem to have a lot of freeway noise. The room was okay and clean but it was clear that the hotel needs some upgrading. It looked like they have upgraded the rooms a bit but not the rest of the hotel. On check in the receptionist told me that they were out of water and I would not be receiving my Priority Club check-in package. I travel a fair amount for business and this has not happened before. Also, At check-out I had to go to the desk to get my bill since they had not done automatic checkout. This was also the first time this happened to me since it is normally part of the Priority Club process. This hotel is centrally located but in my opinion it is just a basic accomodation and nothing special.

We stayed here one night and was surprised at how large and nice the room was. There were many resturants close by and close to the freeway, but, no road noise. There was a pool out back and there was a very nice breakfast in the morning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel.

Stayed there on a trip south and place was ok (or good for the price). Nothing special to report. Rooms were big, little outdated, but clean and nice enough. Freeway (99) is close and you hear road noise.

We stayed here for one night after visiting some close friends. We already knew what to expect since it is a Holiday Inn Express. Everything met our satisfaction and we would stay again if ever we make a repeat trip to Bakersfield. My toddler loved the room since we got the Jacuzzi room, so she would be able to play in the water while we did some office work. It was clean enough and the area was fine. I felt safe so I wouldn't worry too much about the neighborhood just in case you're wondering (Of course always use safety precautions whether you're staying in the safest city in America or the most dangerous). The adjacent street has several fast-food outlets if you're hungry and it's right by the freeway.
