2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Room was cleaned very well. My stay left a good impression.

reasonable price, older building, fairly clean. Close to highway access. restaurants nearby. Quiet.

I love staying here when i visit Bakersfield. The roomz are always clean and attendants are the sweetest!

What hotel doesn't have soap for the bathroom? Door wouldn't close right. Horrible

truck was broken into while checkingyt cool had to fill out police report owner didn't have cameras security for my insurance company

we went home to discover we had lyce in our hair.

Enjoy staying here only negative experience is each time I stay here the WiFi never works which can be inconvenient. Other than that the stay is quite pleasant.

Nice hotel, just wish I would have remembered to ask for a non-smoking room. I liked having the kitchenette.

Neighborhood not very safe. Room smelled like smoke and not very clean.

overall this hotel was a excellent hotel room was clean bathroom kitchen I love it that it has all this stuff in it location is very good I am staying here by myself and I felt safe so I would say this is a good hotel

Location is good but not good. It is located next to a restaurant and a family arcade that's a good! It is not good because it is right off the fwy and it's loud you can literally hear all the trucks pass by.. I like staying in the extended stays they offer kitchenettes and it's good for the price but they do need to work on keeping their furniture in good condition. It was a nice night out on the town since I am local it just gives you that out of town experience. it's walking distance to a restAurant and that's a plus! I do recommend it.. liked the breakfast on the go yummy muffins!

Good, clean, inexpensive place to stay. There are a number of restaurants in the area.

The hotel was clean and fine. Conveniently located right off the freeway.

Woke me up in the middle of the night to kick me out for no apparent reason.

I booked a room for one night. I was given room 209 which was facing the highway. It was very loud, however, the A/C sufficiently drowned out the highway noise once I turned it on. The room was adequate, nothing special. The customer service was minimal. The breakfast is grab-and-go style: coffee, fruit, and pre-packaged muffins and granola bars. Not great, but not bad. There are no bathrooms for use prior to checking in though. So, you have to wait until you get to your room. A little inconvenient, but ok. If you're looking for an economic room and only care about utility, then this hotel will do.

Showed up to check into our room which should have been two double beds only two be told they didn't have it and gave me to separate rooms which were located on separate sides of the hotel.. I keep trying to explain that this was not going to work as I had children with me. The front desk girl didn't know what to do and just kept telling me they have nothing available.. Finally had her call manager which told me the same thing.. After about a 25 minute conversation we located two rooms that had not been checked into yet that happened to be next door to each other... We still all stayed in one room but wasn't the rest I was hoping to get.. Rooms do not have blow dryers and when I went to front office they had all been loaned out so I was unable to blow dry my hair.. When returning to you next day all if the keys had been deactivated for both rooms... Not someplace I would stay again or recommend..

Blah. I did not like it. It was stupid. I paid extra for a room.upgrade qhn all of their romms ate the dams

Desk clerk charged me 25 dollars for amenities, when I questioned him he said "In case you decide to thrash the room". Disabled junk vehicle in parking lot. room smelled and the fan barely worked. Maid service once a week. Was not told that. Appliances old. Paint bubbling in the shower, tub stopper broken. Towels were great backscratchers but not for your ha ha. Grab and go breakfast should be called grab and throw. cheap muffins and old soft apples. Coffee was good. Noisy if you like quiet, train yard and freeway next door. Parking lot was clean, soap made great lather, bed was comfy . Lots of hot water. utensils in kitchen were sufficient, 2 plates cracked. coffee was good. If you are tired and just need to get behind a locked door this is ok. great places to eat nearby. Easy on and off freeway access. The other extended stay in town is much nicer. This place is better than nothing. Should be half the price though. Paul

Love staying here... very convenient when you have children to have the kitchen and all.

Upon arrival my room was dirty I informed management & they immediately checked me into a bigger better room & apologizes for the inconvience. I was happy considering they were all booked up for the night. Glad I didn't have to go somewhere else. Great customer service guys!
