Average

My husband and I were in Bakersfield for our son's graduation from CSUB and just needed a place to spend the night. The room was adequate for that purpose. The front desk clerk was nice but definitely didn't know what she was doing. We had paid for our room online, but at check-in she told us she could give us the lower AAA rate. She charged our credit card for the lower rate and told us she had canceled the on-line payment. When I checked my credit card both payments had been processed. When I called I was told they would refund the lower payment resulting in no reduced rate.

Early Check-In

After confirming though a travel agency on-line I called the hotel to see about checking in early. Check in is normally after 3pm but the gal at the front desk, Dianna I think, was very nice and found an empty room within minutes. I arrived and was checked in within the hour. The room seemed clean with fresh towels and the usual amenities. I needed to contact my girlfriend to let her know what room we had but it took a while for the staff to reset the phone (I attribute that to my early check in). The only things I found the least bit less than perfect were 1) the TV was very small and too far from the bed, 2) that the previous used coffee grounds were still in the coffee maker, and 3) when I went to take a shower there were a couple of long hairs and some baby cockroaches (water beetle's) in the bottom of the tub/shower. Otherwise it was a nice, quiet, comfortable, visit.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

There is a great Sushi restaurant about a block away. You could easily walk it if that is possible with having to cross highways but it was real easy to drive to. Ask the hotel for directions to Sushi Kato if that's your cup of tea!

Handicapped amenities plus

The handicapped room was evidently NOT designed by a handicapped person. The clothe's rack was in the bathroom (which is good for woolens and/or starched clothes, how?) There was no lid on the toilet so nowhere for a handicapped person to sit without bringing in a walker (assuming the walker has a seat) - the bathtub seat was very good and sturdy although it could have been closer to the showerhead. My room was located in an annex 1/3 down a long hall from regular parking. Handicapped parking was located over in the "north 40" where you need a car to get back to the room which would then have been 3/4th down a long hallway. Poor planning for handicapped, but who cares except the handicapped. Also the rug needed cleaning badly - some strange spots on the floor that I didn't notice because I didnt turn the entry light on until the next morning.

There was no breakfast. At least they didn't tell me about. Maybe it's because they have a restaurant attached it.

The sign should say Worst Western -

building is not maintained, hallways smell bad, no electrical outlets near the desk, I could go on... AVOID if you can.
