When we checked in abt, 3pm the girl at the desk was very friendly and helpful, After we got to our room one of the girls that clean the rooms came by and asked if everything was okay and asked if we needed anything. This is something you seldom see, We found our room to be very clean and comfortable. Even tho the motel is near Highway 99 you have to go outside your room to hear the traffic. The next morning we went to the office to have our Continental breakfast where they had cereal, Bisquick and gravy and waffles. The girl at the desk was not very friendly. She just worked at the desk with a frown on her face. It would have been nice if she would have given a few smiles.

I've had worse night sleeps but this place is up there. Ok it was cheap and relatively clean but the stench of stale cigarette smoke was disgusting. Tip for the staff, maybe try an odour remover not air freshner to cover it up! It was foul but it was late so we lived with it. It was also hot, too noisy to open a window and the air con only managed to drop the temp a few degrees, the thermostat said it was 80 degrees! The shower didn't work, only got a trickle and then couldn't switch it off. All in all, fun times!?!

Our first room reeked of smoke. So we moved all our stuff to a second room in another building and the smell was not much better - seems they just use perfume to try and mask the smell. Then after that we get a phone call asking if we took the duvet off the first bed - why would we take a duvet that clearly reeks of smoke and is ugly into the bargain? As for the so called 'high speed internet' - it barely worked and we were right above reception. Check out is at 11am, but the cleaner was knocking so loudly on everyone's doors at 9am that it seemed like something must be wrong.

This is a major truck stop. Maybe it's good for that - breakfast starts at 2am, but for the average traveller, stay somewhere else!!!!

I am frequently in Bakersfield for business, and I always stay at the Vagabond North. I have had nothing but good experiences and the staff is very accommodating, especially Joanne at the front desk. She is always willing to go the extra step, I hope management reads this and gives her the acknowledgment she deserves.

Great if your a Trucker. Lots of truck parking, all paved. Book in advance ask for the main building. rooms get worse in the other seperate building(I was in 3 rooms during my stay). Old school TV's . Nothing over 19" from the 80's,but do have 4 HBO channels. Continenltal breakfast was below average. Staff were very nice. Make sure if you book in... let them know your not a local !!! Lots of locals live here for months at a time and are not well liked by the staff.
Burger King, Quisnos subs, Taco Bell, Jack in the box all walking distance. Nice Mexican Resturaunt and Cafe also next door. The Best is the Hodel Buffet across the street ! OMG the best Buffet I have ever had. It's always jam packed. Great price 2.There is also a Vons(Safeway) walking distance.
Big Advice.... Do not take your socks off in the room. Your feet will be black ! Burn your your socks at check out
