One of the few disappointments with Best Western's Plus designation. Rating must be a carryover from another era. Neighborhood around the hotel is not good.

I stopped there on my way to LA. It was clean but just little old. In the morning around 8:30 I woke up for a lot of loud noises from the hotel's employers: cleaners and repairs. Not far from the highway, 20 miles from the 5.

We stayed her during a conference. The room was very clean and the bed was surprisingly comfortable. The staff goes out of their way to make sure you are happy. The rooms have a coffee maker, frig and free hot breakfast. I will definitely stay here again when traveling to Bakersfield.

I don't ever write reviews but felt so strongly that people needed to hear this. We were warmly greeted by the friendly staff at this Best Western Plus in Bakersfield.

Located in the heart of downtown, across the street from the Amtrak station, and Rabobank Arena. This property consists of several buildings spread over several acres. The hotel backs up to beautiful Mill Creek Park.

We booked several rooms when we were in town for a family birthday celebration. The rooms were clean and the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful - they went out of their way to find us an extra roll away cot. I would stay here again if I had the need.

Great place to stay. Never been here before, so the staff was very helpful giving us directions to certain locations. Nice quiet hotel. The Mexican restaurant attached to the hotel has great food and service. Food is not spicy which is great for us. We ate there two nights.

Staff was very helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The Best Western is centrally located, convenient to downtown and to many attractions including auditorium. And they provide a real breakfast too
