Nice hotel

Overall, was satisfied. Had a scary spider experience, however, staff promptly moved me far away from the ground floor, at no charge. Hot tub was nice. The only thing I was us satisfied with was the lack ove vegetarian dishes at the hotel diner. I asked for something without the meat, and still got charged full price....not a big incentive to come back.

Great place to stop

Check-in was easy, room was clean and bed was comfortable. Love the idea of the bistro in the lobby but a little expensive for what you get. Will stay again on our next trip home.

Wonderful staff

We were well taken care of by a very friendly staff. It took a bit to find off the highway but worth it.

Worth a Re-Visit

We were in town for a special occasion. We have plenty of family in town but decided to stay at the hotel to avoid a long delay in departing the following day. The staff was very pleasant and quick at both checking you in & out. The room was very clean and comfortable. Would consider staying again and highly recommend.

Convenient for my needs

This motel has the best handicapped bathroom facilities I've encountered in memory. Evidently they consulted a handicapped person before constructing - only a couple of changes could have been made. The room was clean albeit, the heater malfunctioned during the night. However, as I was there 2 days, it was promptly repaired the next day. Cafe was nice tho a bit pricey, but again convenient. All in all, a good stay.

Stay in Bakersfield

I had a very good experience during my stay. The room was clean, the hotel clerk was very professional and pleasant and checking in was made easy. I would recommend this motel to anyone looking for a nice, clean place to spend the night. The only thing that did not work out was the whirlpool. The motor burn out that night and that was unfortunate but will not deter me from staying there in the future.

Great deal for the $$, shinny new and good breakfast

There were five of us on our way to Sequoia National Park. A family trip. Bakersfield was a nice midway stop on our way, only 2 more hours in the morning to complete our journey. We arrived late (11:00PM) and was nicely greeted with our room waiting. The room and hotel seemed brand new, easy to find just off the freeway. The room was very big with two queen size beds. We had requested an extra roll away bed be added to the room for our fifth person, but the staff said it would not fit. The room seemed to have plenty of space for a roll away bed to me? However, the two queen beds were sufficient. Somehow they seemed bigger than normal queen size beds. We got our wakeup call on time and had a very good breakfast with cerial, waffles, yogurts, fruit, juice and hot tea. The room was regularly $89 on orbits we upgrade to include breakfast for $10 more, total $99 for the night w/breakfast for 2 adults and all the kids under 13 ate free. Got to Sequoia at 9:30 in time to buy Crystal cave tickets and have a full day in the park.

Disappointed

We stayed one night for a childrens' athletic event. From looking at the ad on [...], it appeared that the breakfast buffet was included in the price. The manager said it was not. While the desk manager comped our kids' buffet, he refused to comp the adult buffets. There are plenty of hotels out there that include breakfast. We won't stay here again. Disappointed in Marriot Courtyard.

rooms good, service barely tolerable

The rooms are exactly like all CY Marriotts - clean, efficient and nice. The front desk clerk when I checked in was TERRIBLE. Not, not helpful, not courteous. It was 9:30 when I checked in and when I went through that painful process with him I asked if the restaurants were open. He said none were open - it is Tuesday night and everything closes - there is only fast food. He didn't offer a list of nearby restaurants with hours, directions, nothing. He was very matter of fact. So, I got in my car and drove down the street - the restaurants stopped serving at 10 but were happy to serve me and the bars stayed open until 11. I likely will not stay there again purely because of that kind of service.
