“Dog Friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

If you are looking for a reasonably priced place to stay with a dog, this is a good choice. The rooms are clean, the bathroom was newer, but the paint job was messy. The room was quiet, but pretty far away from ice. It would have been nice to be able to grab a cup of coffee in the lobby, rather than go into the restaurant and wait for a server to get a to go cup.

The room was clean but sparse. The bed was OK, nothing to right home about. I was glad that I had my pillow with me, theirs were awful. Outside of the quad area was rather sketchy. I had a guy gawking at me and was almost urinated on in the parking lot. The full breakfast was in a diner that had the appearance of being on the edge of bankruptcy with pleasant servers and mediocre food. The staff was pleasant.

Our stay in Bakersville, CA at Best Western was an excellent choice. We always stay at Best Western if we can. This one in particular is in a very nice location with lots to do. We ate at the free breakfast they offered,and it was excellent food and service. We also had a nightcap in the bar. Just an overall great experience.

We were on our way driving to Las Vegas for a Family Function, with the elderly in-laws. We stopped in Bakersfield as a half way point. We stayed at BW Crystal Palace. Perfect stop, right off freeway. Convenient, good value for last minute. Great Restaurant-Buck Owens right next door!! that was excellent too.

Bakersfield is not the garden spot of the Valley but the staff at Crystal Palace are trying the change that with excellent service and a nice overnight stay. I felt at home first thing walking into the nice lobby. The front desk had a big smile and a real concern about are trip. she even joked about where we were, coming so late. The court yard is landscaped and the pool is inviting. The only very small problem was there is no elevator. So if you don't mind a few stairs ask for the first floor.

Not very clean, and poorly maintained. I ended up with bug bites on my legs. The shower curtain was about ready to fall off, the light switches malfunctioned. The carpet looked greasy and like it isn't vacuumed very often. The free breakfast was not what I normally get when I stay at a BW. The only plus, was the check in staff was very friendly.
