“Very Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

We were very please with our stay at the Best Western in Bakersfield ca. The hotel staff were very nice and helpful. The room was very nice and the bed was very comfortable. The grounds and reception area were very clean and nice. Overall our experience was very nice and I would stay there again and also recommend to anyone traveling in that area.

I have stayed at this motel with my employees many times over the past 5 years. It is due to necessity more than desire. The rooms near the lobby are nicer and somewhat more modern and are usually given to the tourists that pass through. The remaining bulk of rooms are less attractive and reflect their age and neglect. This is where people who are working in the area are given rooms. These rooms are showing age and basic bare maintenance. One of the rooms this trip was the same my employees had stayed in before. The first time they had to wait until 10 PM for the maintenance to fix the AC unit. This trip, the AC once again didn`t work as room temp was over 86 degrees. I was able to get another room but it is just another example of the lack of concern from the owners on reinvesting money into this motel that is showing it`s age.

Came in from a long day of driving. It was a nice easy, quick check in. Clean rooms and great customer service. Didn't have the breakfast or use any of the amenities but everything looked nice. We would use this hotel again.

Stayed on a Monday night. Went to Bakersfield for student/parent college orientation. Usually stay at Best Western's when I travel. The Best Western Crystal Palace is conveniently located off of the 99 highway and and close to my destination. The hotel was quiet and beds very comfortable.

It was clean and quite and did come with hot breakfast. The staff not so friendly and couldn't fix any of our problems such as logging onto the internet. We were there for business so this was a huge problem for us. Never could use their wifi.

We had a room on the 2nd floor with a view of the pool. We stayed here for 2 and half days because of the kids and grandkids and the pool area was utilized extensively. The hotel staff was always very professional and friendly even though we did keep asking for more towels all the time. They were still friendly about it. The kids took us to the Crystal Palace restaurant for dinner that evening of which I would not (NOT) recommend going.

Room Tip: Our room on the 2nd floor with a view of the pool (excellent)
