“Over Priced”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

There are two Holiday Inn Express motels in Bakersfield. This is the one by the Freeway. The price was high but we were tired of driving and just wanted off the road. The other HIE was full, so we went ahead with this one. The bed was worn out on my side, closest to the bathroom. I checked out my wife's side and it was in good condition. The owner-operators cut corners every where they could. The breakfast was shabby and they only offered Stryofoam cups which I dislike. It looked like they were running an Import business from the back patio with crates of stone tops lying around.

This hotel is up against the freeway and it's walls are paper thin. We even travel with a fan to drown out any noise and NOTHING would have worked with this hotel. All night you hear vehicles travelling by, hotel doors crashing shut and people walking on the floor above you. I actually jumped a foot, out of a dead sleep when the door across the hall closed during the night. My family and I always travel with 3 daughters in competitive soccer. Sleep is important when you are competing and therefore we always request an upper floor where ever we stay. We call ahead on the day of arrival and always receive our request. This hotel did not respect our request. They don't guarantee this and therefore didn't give any effort to meeting this desire even though we called ahead and were told they would have one for us. We have stayed in many hotels over the years with our girls competitive schedule and we have never struggled this much to sleep than we did at this hotel. Don't be fooled by the #2 rating this hotel currently enjoys, it deceived us into staying here and we were absolutely miserable tossing and turning all night. We even seriously contemplated commuting back and forth to our home (3 hours away) after the first night, but thought that it would have to be better the second night (since we were so tired from not sleeping the first night)...only to find out that it was even worse. I just want to warn you if you are thinking about staying here, it's a nice hotel if you have NO interest in sleeping!

When our fifth wheel trailer had trouble on our trip south we ended up at the Holiday Inn Express in Bakersfield. They could not have been nicer to us. Very acccommodating and wonderful room! Accommodations were wonderful and we felt very comfortable even though half of our belongings were in the repair garage with our trailer. The hotel even granted us a late checkout until we were sure they had gotten the repair parts to complete the job and get us back on the road. The breakfast was wonderful and it added to our pleasure at having to be delayed. We would definitely stay here again trouble or not!

Room Tip: ASk to be housed away from the highway noise.

Clean, clean, clean! Friendly and helpful staff. When entering the stairway looks like the mansion stairway from the Beverly hillbillies movie. Beautiful wooden banister. Rooms are HUGE with sitting area and desk. Also bathrooms are spacious. Breakfast was great, a good variety. If in the area, stay here you will not be disappointed. Reasonable rates.

Room Tip: Some rooms are near freeway. Ask for ear plugs or a room not near this area.

We chose this hotel as it was on the main route between Vegas and San francisco. The room was clean and breakfast was good. There is not much else around the hotel but that didnt matter as it was just a stop over for us.
