“Nice and comfortable for a one night's stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013

We stayed here for one night on our way from Northern California to Phoenix, AZ. We phoned the hotel earlier in the day to confirm our non-smoking room and to inform them we'd be arriving around 10pm. They said "no problem". We didn't arrive until after 11pm and it was still "no problem". The man who checked us in even did it with a smile.

We found the room clean despite being a bit older. The bed was very comfortable. My husband and I both slept well despite my having sleeping problems which was a nice bonus. This is not a new or luxurious hotel by any means, but plenty comfortable for one night's stay. The hotel is located not far from the freeway but there was no highway noise at all. It's nestled in between other businesses (not hotels) so there is not view of any kind. But since all we did was sleep there we weren't interested in a view anyway.

We found the hotel staff friendly and courteous and extremely helpful. Case in point: we left our MP3 player in the room and didn't realize until we were about 2 hours down the highway. We called and spoke with Mike. After putting us on hold he went and checked the room and found the MP3 player exactly where we told him we'd left it. We asked if he'd be willing to mail it to our home and we'd send him a check for shipping as well as his time. He agreed. By the time we arrived home from our short trip to Arizona 5 days later - there was the package waiting for us. We were impressed and thankful for the kindness shown by Mike.

This hotel, although newly renovated with very lovely rooms seems to attract "ladies of the night" and with PAPER THIN walls you do not want to be here believe me! Staff at desk is pleasant and friendly and it is such a shame that this hotel attracts bad clientele. Also, even if there happens to be no bad clientele when you stay, every noise is heard through these paper thin walls so that you will definitely not have a good night's sleep. As well, due to the coming and going all night long and doors slamming this is adds to the noise level. Too bad - as the rooms are great. Will definitely never stay here again. In fact will probably never stay in another Knight's Inn. Perhaps they should screen their customers more thoroughly.

On our way from Death Valley to Yosemite park we stopped here to spend the night. Though the outside doesn't look like much, the reception and it's receptionist were some what awkward, the breakfast was just some coffee and some serials, we still had a good experience. The room was spacious and clean enough, the king sized bed was good, it was quiet enough for a good night sleep and we had none of the negative experiences as mentioned in other reviews.

Overall the price was great for the purpose. I would gladly stay here for another night if II wanted to explore Bakersfield.

We are in a road trip for the west coast of USA and this is the worst motel we have ever stayed!! It was convenient for our route to Sequoia National Park but I will never stay here!
The breakfast was a joke! In the reception and just a few things.

And the room was stinky. Weird smell. Happy than was only for 1 night!

We spent one night in Knights Inn but it was more than enough. The staff was very very weird. They were pretty rude as well. The room was dirty such as the bathroom and the towels. The A/C was stinky. Even if they advertise it they does not serve breakfast. They do not even have a place to eat. Worst memory from the States.

Room Tip: It is not possible to choose a good room.

I've stayed at a lot of cheap motels, and this is the worst motel stay ever! When we arrived at our first room a guy was in there and kept saying curtain, curtain and pointing to a curtain fixing being done and pointed us back to the front desk (he could hardly speak english, just like the man and woman at the front desk). So we then got sent to a room upstairs. The bathroom light did not turn on and it was pitch black in there. We couldn't get it fixed because the woman at the front desk didn't understand what we were saying. So we had to keep the bathroom door open to be able to see in there at all. Awful! The shower floor was extremely slippery when dry, before even turning the water on. It felt like there was some very slippery residue of something in there, I almost slipped twice. There was staining on the bed sheets and pillows. Pillows were very uncomfortable and made my neck hurt. Never slept on uncomfortable pillows before (never even in cheaper motels). The bed itself was comfortable, but we paid the rate for the king size and we were given a queen size and we were not refunded the difference. No wireless internet connection was available as they advertised. They also advertised wired connection, but apparently you have to bring your own ethernet cable for that, so we couldn't use the internet. We got a non-smoking room because we can't tolerate smoke odors, and at night the strong stench of marijuana seeped under our door from someone else's room, so we had to put towels under our door to block it. The carpet was very dirty and there was a dead worm on it. There were also food crumbs on top of the bed spread when we arrived. The place was very noisy with people coming and going until midnight, and then began again at 5 am, so I only got 5 hours of sleep (which wasn't very restful due to bad pillows). We checked out at 7 am, and there were no pastries left so my husband didn't get breakfast because he doesn't like cereal and those are the only 2 options (should have grabbed him one when they had a whole seven of them at 6:30). What I thought was orange juice at the breakfast, was very watery orange drink made from powder (Tang or something like it). Had to eat my cereal on their dirty couch by the front desk (no tables). I chose this place because it had amazing reviews on expedia.com, and I've stayed at other Knights Inns that are great. I think this location is just very poorly managed. I just got home from there, and my neck is itchy and has a red rash. I'm thinking either something there bit me or I was allergic to something on the bed or something. Also, while I was eating breakfast by the front desk, another guest asked them for an iron because it was apparently missing from their room, and they couldn't understand him either, and sent him away without an iron. My husband also agrees this is the worst motel ever, and neither of us will ever stay there again.

Room Tip: a tip to choose a good room is to choose a room at a different motel.
