Great value, location. Breakfast good. That is all I think I will write. And I think it is poor design that this review form requires me to enter more.

Cleanliness is of utmost importance to me and this hotel was very clean!

Very happy with this place loved it will stay there again my next trip to Bakersfield

Really friendly staff breakfast is good really beautiful hotel

I didn't expect the hotel to be as clean and nice as it was. The staff were friendly and accommodating.

This place is close to the freeway and an awesome sta with an outstanding staff. Very clean and super nice rooms. I've stayed at a few hotels in Bakersfield throughout the years and they place is amazing.

Good location, clean, friendly staff, and nice spacious rooms. A little overpriced for a Holiday Inn Express, though.

Stayed here for a week our niece was getting married! The owner/ manager was very friendly, helpful, willing to help with anything that we needed. Rooms were comfortable, clean, bed would have been changed every day if we wanted! Staff was very friendly. Loved the staircase!

Thought I would be there a week. I was there four. The staff could not have been more accommodating. The place is clean and well kept. Could have used a little more variety for breakfast but that was only because of the length of my stay. Would definately recommend this hotel

In Bakersfield on extended business. This hotel was perfect. A tremendously helpful staff, courteous and genuinely concerned about your needs. Very clean, room was comfortable and the bed was great. Solid breakfast and and an overall clean crisp accommodation

The hotel was right off the freeway exit but you did not hear cars all night long. The Hotel beds and pillows were very comfortable and sleep well. THe continenetial breakfast was ok my kids were happy with the food and quality. The front desk staff was helpful and provides me with what ever I asked for. They supplied us with bottle water at check in.

My mom and I spent a night here. We had the 2 queen bed suite. It was nice, comfortable, spacious, and clean. The staff were nice and courteous. Parking was free, and complimentary breakfast was included. I believe it was worth it for the price. I would recommend it to anyone.

Great place right off the interstate. Awesome if you are working in the area, big parking.

Very adequate for what I was looking for. The best thing was the front desk

My second stay here, visiting family. Good location for Westside and North of the river visiting. Just off Highway 99 freeway. Very nice rooms, good breakfast, helpful staff (they greeted me by name). A bit pricey, but worth it to me. My only complaint applies to many hotels today: Down (or artificial down) comforters are usually too warm, and the only option is a single sheet as a cover. It's difficult to adjust the room heat to make it cool enough to use the comforter or warm enough to use the sheet alone.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
