Holiday Inn Express Bakersfield

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Everything was fine. This was a very typical Holiday Inn Express and everything went as expected. Courteous staff, comfortable room. The only thing is that all of the Holiday Inn Express properties seem to have skimped on insulation in the rooms and doors, you can definitely hear noise at night in the rooms.

It was the perfect distance from my mom's house and super clean! Would definitely stay there again next time I'm in Bakersfield.

In a little forest in the hillside. Great location. Only downside was the access to pool only through public area.

In town for a family gathering. The hotel was great, the room was great, the location was great, the staff was great and the breakfast was excellent. I will most definitely stay there next time I'm in town. Holiday Inn Express They're Grrrrrreat!!!

Great stay, everything close to this hotel. Clean and a good value

Hotel staff were great and accommodating . Rooms were newly renovated. Only thing was the cost of the room due to a convention near by.

Everything was was as it should be when getting away. Nothing to worry about or need to fix. Excellent experience.

Hotel was clean and staff was friendly. Nice room and consistent with Holiday Inn Express. Breakfast had nice choices. Eggs were a little rubbery. Overall great stay at a good price. Tried to rebook for the next night on that day and the price was double. Ended up somewhere else for the second night.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was recently renovated and clean. It was quiet. The bed was really comfortable. The breakfast wasn't fancy, but it got my day started just fine. The coffee was great. The neighborhood was about what we expected in light of the fact we were in Bakersfield.

Although the staff was very kind, the location was not. There were no linens for the sofa bed, and the walls are incredibly thin. We will find somewhere else next time.

overall very good. good breakfast, close to the attractions that we were looking for.

Very nice hotel, clean comfortable bed, good breakfast Nice flat screen tv doesn't have digital tv but that didn't bother me.

traveling from Kings Canyon on motorcycle on way back to Newport Beach was looking for a place to stay, the rate and complimentary breakfast is what hooked me, the room is what impressed me, very comfy king size bed, nice business oriented desk and chair, nice flat screen TV, not your average "continental" breakfast, actually had eggs, pancakes, biscuits & gravy, yogurt and fruit as well as cereals, muffins and bagels, fresh coffee and tea, juice station also, only complaint would be no digital cable to go with nice TV but since i was beat and needed a rest i was not interested in watching TV, room 405 was where i was, top floor, quiet location just off interstate, thank you Holiday Inn~!

Nice hotel. Pleasant and helpful staff. Good breakfast available. Pillows weren't great, but everything else was good.

The surrounding area is rundown and dirty. I would not recommmend this to a female traveling alone. However, it is not in the middle of nowhere and there are grocery stores and fast food just around the corner, so although it feels unsafe, it is not inconvenient.

The location is ok, but you would not take walk out of the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable for my 5 day business trip. It was quiet during my stay, but you can definitely hear talking from the adjacent rooms. One small item about the service: most rooms received a copy of USA Today paper except for my room. I asked the front desk about not getting a paper and I was told only Holiday Inn rewards customers get paper.

overall, its bad experience. needs upgrade. hot water is the only plus point

Hotel and room was clean. Spacious room for the price! Friendly staff and good breakfast. A terrific deal for the price!

I stayed here for one night with two HS seniors (during a tour of colleges throughout the State). The staff was friendly and they made sure I got a quiet room.. Of all the hotels we visited during the week, this one had the most comfortable beds. The pillows were even marked "firm" and "soft" just in case we couldn't tell the difference (!). I wish I could have strapped that mattress to the top of my car and brought it home. The hotel was well maintained and the room was spacious and attractive. It included a mini frig, microwave, desk, and table/chairs. The girls tried the workout room but came back after 10 minutes because it was so hot in that room (not sure why it wasn't air conditioned). The breakfast was OK overall (scrambled eggs, sausage patties, waffles, plus all the standard items) but there was no fruit and they ran out of yogurt (which would have been our preference). I will stay here again if I ever have reason to return to Bakersfield.

Very nice. No complaints. Check in was easy. Room was clean. The continental breakfast was as expected.
