I stay here every time I’m in town, and have since it opened. Maria at the front desk is awesome. The hotel is spotless, nice large rooms. Everything is in order and clean. The hotel is close to food establishments, the airport etc. You couldn’t ask for a nicer place to stay 💚

Very friendly staff, Bree specially, my wife forgot a vest and Bree went out of her way to make sure we got it back. Pool area looks beautiful, if our travels bring us here during warmer weather we will definitely take advantage of their pool.

This hotel is the best value in Bakersfield, CA. The furnishings and decor are those found in a luxury hotel. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Parneet, Juan, Flor, and Ruben each helped us personally--with access keys, luggage carts, directions, and instructions about how to use the coffee machine. The only negative was the complimentary breakfast. There was coffee, bottled juice, stale prepackaged Danish, and apples and oranges far from fresh. But the quiet,comfortable room was top notch. The swimming pool is huge! But the hot tub was unavailable.

Thank you for your review. We're so glad you received excellent customer service from our staff and enjoyed the well-appointed furnishings. We apologize for the breakfast. Due to the limited amount of space and seating available, we offer a limited selection of complimentary items. We do have a few items for sale at the market and can recommend various restaurants nearby the hotel for a heartier meal. We also apologize for the hot tub being unavailable as we were replacing the glass surrounding the area. The issue has been corrected and the hot tub is currently available for use. We hope to see you again at Hourglass Hotel during your next stay in Bakersfield!

NOT SAFE !Due to the faulty key cards, my 93 year old mother was left by a door nearest the handicapped parking while I walked around a dark and empty back parking lot to try another door at 10 PM on a Friday night. The next day, the key card would not work to open the room door and again my mother was left in peril. I was in the hallway and she was inside the room and unable to open it due to the weight of the door and her need to hold on to her walker. The cleaning staff were unwilling to open the door and no management staff offered to come to the farthest back hallway to assist eventhough the front desk was alerted to the situation by the housekeeping staff. By the time I walked up to the front desk of this very large property, I was highly upset and asked to be checked out a daily early from our original reservation. I asked if I would be refunded and the young woman looked up my reservation and said yes. I have called the hotel directly a few times and told that I needed to speak with a manager and left my name and number which I did at the time of checkout as well. Here it is October and the youngwoman that took my call today explained that I was never eligible for a refund because I booked under a non-refundable last minute rate. I actually checked the rate on the day that I left and it was lower than my booked price! I was never asked until today what the issue was. It is not safe to have faulty key cards and the youngwoman today stated that the key cards are a recurring issue.
