Good for what it was

Went to a wedding that was held across the street at the Marriott over the weekend.. Unfortunately the rooms there were sold out so I picked this place due to it's location, price, and brand. Stayed 2 nights. The area? Can't help where it's at. It's Bakersfield, you shouldn't expect much. The hotel served its purpose of being near the convention center, so there's that. Morning continental breakfast in the lobby was good. Had hot oatmeal and waffle machine. The only think I'd complain about is that the rooms should get new carpets. It felt a bit greasy and contributed to the smoke smell that I got really annoyed with. I ended up opening the window and door for a while to get some circulation going. But alas, price + location convenience, + the circumstances = sure, why not.

Solid value

This was a great value for this part of town. Nice size room, lots of pillows, fluffy towels. And the breakfast was quite nice. Also enjoyed the bar/restaurant with happy hour drink prices through 8pm.

Quick Overnight Stay

Experience with the hotel was below average. The overnight rate for this hotel is pretty much around a three star hotel, but it is no where close to it. The facility is old and not up-to-date. The room isn't exactly comfortable, and the air conditioner is noisy. In my opinion, I think the hotel can do much better.

touring with the Band

Great no hassles. Would stay here again! I wish we had time to get in the pool! It was very cute. There were a couple of great restraunts within very short walking distance.

Roaches!

Found 2 dead roaches in the bedroom and 1 in the bathroom! Because we slept until noon the first day, there was no one available to make up our room or even deliver towels.
