This is a pretty new hotel. The room was large and comfortable. The staff was helpful - I had driven over 10 hours to get there and was a bit forgetful checking in but they got me through it. The hotel is across the street from a good brewery with great food. Just what I needed to rest up for another day of travel.

Hotel's Favourite
We found the Holiday Inn in Bakersfield CA wonderful because it had restaurants. The room was nice. We found the servers delightful and charming and professional. The barman made very sweet martinis, which was not to our liking. We sat at the bar and had dinner. My wife had a chicken sandwich and I had ham and cheese sandwich. We also had breakfast on the way out. I had scrambled eggs and bacon and sausage.

The water pressure was very low in the bathroom. The windows were so dirty, we couldn’t see out of them. My daughter lived the indoor gym except she said there were no cleaning wipes for the equipment. The staff were very nice and attentive!!! The room was very clean except for the windows.

Great stay, quiet comfortable room. Nice Massage chair in the lobby as well ! Stayed in quite a few hotels over the last month and very few seem to acknowledge member status anymore. However, this place was the exception, Betty at the Front Desk acknowledged our status a couple of times. It showed she cared that we stay at IHG properties a lot ! Not really a status guy but when she thanked us for being a Platinum member I realized that she was probably the first one to actually say it. Thanks Betty !! The hotel is in nice condition, we had great parking ( it gets gated at night, kind of) our room was clean, really quiet and quite large. We'd stay here again if in the area.

Only a one night stop while traveling but the room was spacious and comfortable. Access was good with lots of parking. Morning coffee in room. Didn't try the breakfast but appears to have a good serving area with multiple options. Staff was friendly and courteous.

We stayed at Holiday Inn on Marriott Dr in Bakersfield, California.. We used points for a reward night. We got a room basically stripped of needed items. We had no refrigerator, no microwave (though they did bring one up at our request); no shampoo, conditioner, or body wash; no hairdryer; no laundry bag; the lamps beside the bed had a place to plug in a charger plug, but the plug did not fit so that feature was useless (and we had to move bedside tables to locate plugs); stained carpet; not even a pen/piece of paper to jot notes. But there were two telephones! Now, this I contrast with our stay last night at a Holiday Inn in Ukiah, California. It, too was a rewards night. We had an immaculate room with absolutely everything we needed, just as if it was the most expensive room in the hotel.

We stayed here on a planned trip home. We stayed using our Holiday Inn Rewards. As usual, we were given a less desirable room. The room was on the 2nd floor and the window overlooked a walled-off rooftop that contained A/C units. There was no view at all. The lamp next to the couch didn't turn on. I finally figured out that it was unplugged and pulled out the couch to access the outlet. And when we went to use the refrigerator, it was warm and not working. We were very disappointed in the room and it was by far the worst HIE we stayed at on this trip. We stayed at 7 properties total. The property is under remodel, but we were told that the rooms were all completed. The bathroom was modern, and the pillows were perfect. The breakfast did include a Belgium waffle maker which is rare at any HIE anymore. So, I did enjoy that. And the girl at the front desk was super friendly. The final observation we made was that the pictures shown of the hotel do not show the spiked fence that surrounds the property. They have padlocked the 2 pedestrian gate entries off of the sidewalk along with one of the car entries. There is only one way to get into the property. It made us wonder about the safety of the area. Also, there is no crosswalk to get across to the other side of a 4-lane highway which is where most of the entertainment and restaurants are. You need to walk a block in either direction to access a light to safely cross.

Reviews for this hotels have never been more deceiving. I always do my research on where I stay with cleanliness being top priority. How this hotel got so many great reviews is just baffling. First, this hotel is not in the greatest area of town. The 1 am escort entering the hotel lobby is not a good look, but then again it's a few businesses down for a strip club. The smell and look of the lobby was also an indicator of what was to come. Furniture was extremely dated and it's old, musty odor matched. The front desk clerks looked sloppy and transient, maybe why then were on graveyard. They were not very pleasant and lacked any welcoming vibe. Issues with Priceline didn't help my check in process, but the clerks seeming unbothered and couldn't care less about the situation added to the frustration. What was more important to them was sending one on a fast food run, then coming back to eat at the front desk while watching videos on their mobile devices. As for the room itself. My goodness, in all of my travels this was hands down the grossest room I have stayed in. The only updated part of this room was the bathroom, which still had hair in the tub and on the walls, mold and dirty floors that were clearly not mopped. The room had an even stronger old, musty odor than the lobby. Furniture was old and dirty. There were dirty liquid stain all over the curtains that they seemed completely fine with and the walls showed just how low their standard of cleaning was. Just shocking really. I couldn't believe this was the same hotel that got great reviews. The only things that were clean were the towels and the bedding, thank goodness. Had this room not been prepaid and nonrefundable I would have been out of there. It was a rough stay to say the least. Holiday Inn should really reevaluate this hotel.

My family stayed at this hotel on Nov. 13, 2020. It was very unsafe because the staff did not even try to enforce their mask mandate. There are some very faded photocopies of signs on the pillars as you leave the hotel, and in the elevator, but they are so faint that they are hard to read. The signs say: "a face covering over your nose and mouth is required by law." But guests walk around without masks and the desk clerks say nothing, even though they have a box of masks at the reception desk. The clerks themselves did not wear one about half the time, but had them hanging down their chin, not covering their mouth. What a shame, because the hotel is very attractive and has a great free breakfast buffet and free newspapers. But with COVID raging at its worst level since the pandemic began, I would not recommend for anyone to stay there.

We arrived December 23rd in order to spend last moments with a dying family member. First recommendation, do not call the hotel directly for the best rate, even though they will tell you it is the best rate. The best rate is actually available online or through the third party like Priceline. Once we arrived we were able to check in. Our room was on the third floor. The room was clean. We left and went to the Bakersfield Heart Hospital, which is 5 minutes from the hotel, to visit our family member and then to Zingos Cafe next door for a late dinner. We arrived back to the hotel and nothing seemed amiss so we went to bed. Around 4:30 am my daughter and I awoke to an incessant beeping. I finally figured out it was coming from the air conditioner/heater. I called downstairs and around 5:30 am they were able to send someone up. They reset the system or something and said it happened occasionally. Everything was fine that day, the breakfast the offer is good and they put plenty out. The next night about 1:30 the beeping started again. Nothing had run weird or seemed off but here we were and the only way to make it stop was to call downstairs. It was Christmas. I called downstairs and was told that there was no one there except for the person at the desk so she couldn’t come and fix it. The only thing she could do is move my room. So at 1:45 in the morning my family started the process of moving all of our things. It was a long night of little to no sleep and no apologies or anything. In fact, when we went downstairs that morning and I turned in the other keys and was accused of roughing the thermostat and making the unit surge or overheat or whatever it did. I was not happy. There was never an apology or anything from having to move rooms in the middle of the night. The next morning we were supposed to check out but a huge blizzard had blocked the two main freeways out of town with no word on when it would reopen. We went to the front desk and requested another night, which we were granted at 2 1/2 times the rate we were currently paying. So as not to end up having to sleep in the car with our family that night we agreed. In the middle of all this, our family member passed away. The hotel itself was fine. The customer service left a lot to be desired. No one went out of their way to do anything nice. Or to even smile. Any requests were met with apathy or like we were an inconvenience. Made being away from home for the holidays tougher than it had to be.
