We stayed at Howard Johnsons Bakersfield (white lane & 99) 2 separate nights, the first being our first night in the states, the second being on our way back down from Yosemite. So this hotel is ok... But the wifi is super crap. Like unless you're standing outside your room, it's non existent- won't even show up as an option...

The price is right, but the facility is showing wear. I appears clean and painted. The door had some space in the jamb. Door handle had to be pulled up, would not work pushing down. The area is noisy and could be heard inside. There was no outlet near the desk which was inconvenient. The AC well, but was noisy...

Booked as a cheap overnight stay on a long road trip. Room: basically comfortable, however... the room reeked of industrial-strength cleaner. Had to air it out for a couple of hours. Lots of little problems - the door handle on the bathroom door was missing (just gone - there was a large round hole in the door where it used...
