This was our third stay at Best Western Hill House. Even though it is an older facility, it has been maintained very well. A full breakfast is offered with the room, but we did not take advantage of it as we had our meals with Family in the area. The room was clean, and very quiet. The staff was friendly and very attentive to our needs. The price was reasonable. I would recommend this facility to anyone staying in Bakersfield.

Hotel's Favourite
The location of the hotel is very convenient to the freeway and convention center. We arrived late and left early so there wasn't much interaction with the staff. Our room was very large and comfortable. The parking lot is well lite and seems very safe. There are no elevators in the section we stayed in so climbing the stairs to our room was a little difficult with our luggage. The only negative thing I saw was the carpet on the stairs could be cleaned or replaced otherwise we would stay here again.

The Bestwestern Hillhouse is amazing. The rooms are nice, the beds and pillows are comfortable, and the water in the shower is hot! The staff members are wonderful. I so appreciate Andrew and Sierra. The owner's wife and her sister were so kind. The attached Mexican restaurant has great food as well! I will continue to stay here weekly until September.

This is very close to the convention centre and other hotels. However it is on the edge of the 'bad' part of town.. Staff are very friendly. The hotel is gated and therfore very safe. The hotel is not new, but very clean. The rooms were very large and actually good. Nice decor and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast is odd... it is at the attached casa de mariscos. You wait outside, order taken, then you either sit or take away... it feels berry "budget", however, the food is tasty

Clean, fair-priced hotel right across the street from Mechanics Bank Arena. Friendly staff and easy checkin/out. I would gladly stay again. Much better price than the Marriott across the street. Secure, gated parking.

We have stayed here twice and appreciate the courteous front desk service and the overall cleanliness of the rooms and public spaces. The location is ideal for us as we attend a conference held near the downtown area. It's also wonderful that we can walk along Mill Creek for our morning walk!

Property is so filthy!! Homeless people everywhere. In a seedy part of town. No elevators. The breakfast is not like the other BW properties. They give you three choices and a 8 oz cup of orange juice. You have to wait outside for the person to come out to take your order. Then you wait again for the person to hand you your breakfast. Definitely would encourage people NOT to use this facility. Does not represent the BW name at all.
