I recently had to stay in Bakersfield due to a serious illness of my brother. I had no time to do reviews in order to choose a hotel. I basically made my choice by the first one I found as I drove from the Hospital. My stay was amazing. I was greeted by a young receptionist (Edith) who was very...

Place was dirty with trash and dead bugs. When moved to another room, same results with trash. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone. It took about 7 hours to get a microwave put in the room because it didn't have one.

Very friendly helpful staff. Clean room and facilities. We enjoyed our stay. Also the free "Hot" breakfast included with the room was a very nice surprise, and it was also very tasty. We will definitely stay at the Red Lion again on our next visit of Bakersfield.

The room was large and attractive. The beds and bedding were clean and comfortable. The TV, mini-fridge and heater all worked fine. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was adequate. The location was easy off/on the freeway. We had a few minor plumbing problems (wonky faucets).

Upon entering you could tell maybe the hotel used to be decent years ago but not 3 star now. Perhaps they remodeled the lobby but the rooms were completely dilapidated. Lobby was nicely decorated for Christmas but it ends there.Room walls were also paper thin. We pretty much didn't sleep at all at night because the flat screen TV in...

Ask for a downstairs room with an indoor entrance. There doesn't seem to be any extra charge for these rooms. Staff: Get an elevator! First priority. You can install it in the two story atrium in the very back of the lobby.

I was looking forward to my Red Lion (RL), my disappointment started as soon as I entered. Here were my disappointments: 1. Check In My check in took forever. There were 5 people waiting to check in, but only one office person. So it took a long time. 2. Hotel Security I do not have a secure feeling about this...

The wallpaper is falling off the batteries are hanging out of the smoke detector. The sheets have little holes in them from wear and tear. There is a funky smell in the room. I'm only here for one night, luckily, or I would ask to move but not much hope it will be better in another room. Do not recommend.
