We had one night in Bakersfield on our way back from Sequoia NP before a flight from LAX. We had made enquiries across the road but the room that was on offer was almost twice as much and smaller.
We were greeted by friendly staff and a great rate - way cheaper than we had paid for the last 2 weeks in much more basic motels. Our room was on the ground floor and overlooked the pool, with a good patio area to sit on.
It was clean, spacious, had a fridge and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was a good size and the shower was hot and powerful.
The pool area is lovely with nice gardens and pool towels are provided.
We had no issues with noise, which was not the case in other places that we stayed in, and had a good night's sleep.
The added bonus of a breakfast for the value price was great. The icing on the cake was that the desk staff let us have a late check out so that we didn't have to leave too early for LAX,meaning that we had a lovely relaxing morning and a shower just before we left.
It is right next door to Buck Owen's Crystal Palace (the only attraction in Bakersville according to my guidebook) and were gutted that it was closed on Sunday evening as was the restaurant adjoining the hotel.
For value, this place can't be beaten.
