Howard Johnson Inn - Bakersfield

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was very good for the price. Has a frig, microwave and even coffee and not to mention breakfast. Lot's of low budget restaurants nearby. We went to a really good Mediterranean style one just a few blocks away.

I got a room on the south side and it's right next to a busy road. Only thing to drown it out was the A/C unit which was really too noisy itself to sleep well. The north side is quiet and doesn't face a busy road. It is also shadier if you want to keep your car out of the sun. Not a bad spot by any means, just would've liked to sleep better without the noise.

Just needed a place to stay until my place was ready to move in . Liked the pool area , and the staff very friendly.

The room was clean and quiet. Towels and bath needs were supplied enough for the guests.

Not bad for the price of the competition motels out there

Everything was great, just wish there was WiFi and and and and

Cockroaches every where , hairs everywhere not good gross

It was a nice hotel where I could rest and make a stop trought my long trip to Sacramento.

it was very convenient and comfortable place to stay. On our way to Palm Beach from San Jose and needed a place in the middle to rest. Howard Johnson fit the bill perfectly. Free Wi-Fi and continental breakfast a big plus. I would recommend if you need a comfortable place to stay.

Very nice and affordable. Last minute choice, but was perfect. Would stay again.

There was hair in the bathtub. The tub stopper was dirty, old, and disgusting. The freezer in the room refrigerator. The breakfast consisted of poor choice of foods. The agent at the desk did not want to give me a receipt when I checked out. She said travel agency would email me a receipt after check out. I will never stay there again!

Staff did put us in a new room. Rooms are kinda dirty but super cheap

The room was fine just passing through on the way to San Jose just needed a place to sleep it was just fine.

Clean room and convenient location on the way to Vegas from the Bay Area. Fast check-in. Decent continental breakfast.

ROOM WAS WARM AT FIRST EMPLOYEE WASNT TO FRIENDLY WISH BETTER FOOD DURING BREAKASFT

Just wanted an easy to freeway place to sleep and that's all we got. Bed comfortable, but carpet really old and filthy. Rain dripping in through ceiling. This place needs major refurbishment!

I usually don't give reviews but this stay was totally sweet! Good price, convenient location, clean room. We enjoyed our stay will be returning in the future.

Enjoy my stay after a long drive. The room was clean, bed sheets were clean and soft. Had a great night sleep! I will be returning in the near future.

the stay was very nice the room was very clean and very quite. hoping to stay again

Arrived late at night and was greeted by a woman who didn't really seem to care. Paid an extra $5.00 to have a smoking room. Was told upon check in that to get a smoking room and would have to upgrade. Of course the woman blamed ***** for over booking, but was not at all conciliatory at all. I accepted the room and made the comment that I would smoke outside and she made a matter of fact statement that it had to be away from the building.
