The room looked clean. Stingy with the face and other towels. No microwave in room or available. Parking lot so small, i had to park down the street and walk back to hotel on a Saturday night. Continental breakfast was skimpy.

This hotel in an odd area of Bakersfield provided a very modern, clean room. The hotel building itself is dated, but the rooms have been remodeled. There is a very nice pool (closed for the season) with surrounding grassy open area on the ground level, fenced in. I was a bit taken aback upon arrival, as the immediate neighborhood is filled with pawn shops and bail bondsmen. The parking is undercover, but open to the street. Just a few blocks away, however, are Bakersfield High School and a more upscale commercial area. The front desk man was polite.

Room great. Nice and clean. Area was close to the court which was a little scary but it was a great deal for the price. I would stay again. Staff very nice!
