Nice, but a little pricey

We ended up at this hotel as the result of a last minute decision to stop for the night. Unfortunately that's not a good idea on a Friday night. The room was large and spacious. The staff was great. We even got a call from the front desk half an hour after check in to make sure we had everything we needed. The only down side was the price. We paid at least 50% more than we would typically pay. So while the hotel was great, you pay for it. The only place I would say that could be improved was the breakfast. For the priceof the room, I thought the quality of the service was only adequate at best.

Meet a friend

It was a nice hotel. Good location, easy to get too. Restaurant around. Down side price for one night. I'm planing on trips. But don't think I'm stay there. I would recommend if you don't care about price.

Nice hotel, not the best neighborhood

Nice lobby, regular self-serve hot breakfast. The room was very nice, good beds, large HD tv, and the bathroom was good. Shower had rain-type disk overhead plus 6 jets down the length. We would stay here again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

We ate two meals next door at Zingo's Cafe. Meals were mediocre, even the waitress had opinions on the food...Next time we'd take the car and drive 2-3 blocks to Dennys.

Nice Motel

The hotel was well kept and had a very comfortable bed. The heating/air con unit worked well and was quiet. The manager was kind enough to move his car so we could park in front where it could be seen from the reception desk as we had bikes on the car. Breakfast is not included but there is a little restaurant attached to the hotel where you can purchase sandwiches, latte etc.

The Hungry Hunter Steakhouse (recommended by the manager) was a very good place to eat and a short drive away.

Comfy, quiet, refined.

Engineering work/operations training school near Taft. Air travel into Bakersfield was a disaster [...]. An exquisite shower followed by a perfect landing on the pillow top bed smoothed some of the irritation. I'll stay here the next time I'm in town, and hope the air trip is better.

Wyndham in Bak-o

Something about the Hotel and its location makes it unlively, but i guess that could be a good thing for some people. I have stayed at other Hotels in Bakersfield and they just appear to be more alive and happening, this place was dead, but then again it is Bakersfield, what do you expect.

Sandrinis in Downtown, for a drink, or Club Odyssey at the marriot to party. Also check out the band Velorio when youre in Bakersfield.

Awesome!

Totally surprised by this hotel! got a great deal on it, so thought it was going to be a dud, but didn't care much as we were only there for one night as we were driving back to SF from SD. The hotel was great! the rooms were spacious, the beds were 100% comfortable, the shower was superb, the place was very clean! I mean what more can you ask? Didn't see Bakersfield at all - so have no idea how the location compares to other hotels in the area - but it was perfect for us!

Nice business hotel, no free breakfast?

The rooms were very nice and comfortable, but they don't offer free breakfast or coffee like many other places I've stayed. Not that this is a deal breaker, but be aware of this if you book a reservation here.
