This is a very clean and comfortable hotel. The staff is simply amazing. They take care of all my needs every time I visit. They are located within walking distance of many services, and have over 20 actual Truck parking spaces. I stay here, and here only when I am in Bakersfield. Kudos to them

While having my house tented I decided to try this hotel, I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the rooms were. I requested a room with a king size bed and they gave me one by the pool, and it was furnished so nicely, we had a fridge/microwave, lots of room, wooden floors and looked to be freshly painted. Usually...

Pros: it's right off the freeway. Cons: it's right on the freeway. Stayed one Thursday night. In town for a funeral. Check-in was quick and easy. We drove around to the room and we had our own parking place in front. Nice. The room was large and clean with hardwood flooring. The vanity area is large but the separate toilet/tub-shower...

Travelling from Vegus to SanFrancisco Bakersfield is about halfway and a place to spend 1 night to break the trip. Requested a non smoking room but the room smelt strongly of smoke could not wait to get out. Room very basic but appeared fairly clean. Didn't stay for breakfast didn't appeal. Wouldn't recommend it for couples or families.

Reviewed 27 July 2015

I guess it's not the worst place ever to stay, but the bathtub was all rusted out, the room looked dirty and there was an alleged hooker roaming around the motel, going in and out of different rooms. There is definitely a reason why we only paid about $40 per night, on the weekend, for this room.

It's nicely located on the fields, some 10 miles from anything called city. Yes, there is a gas station (as a matter of fact two) and a Jake in the box restaurant, but nothing else. The pool is small as a bath tub, maybe fantastic since it has a high fence surrounding and defending it. The staff was more interested...

I stay in hotels 300 + nights yearly. This hotel is located close to the freeway and it is very easy to park large vehicles. This is a budget hotel and it isn't fancy, but you can get a good night's sleep. Overall, a great place to stay.

Average room, quite clean but really basic breakfast. Good if you are just looking for a place to sleep on the way to somewhere else as it's close to the highway. Stayed in a room on the side of the highway so it was really noisy.
