I have stayed at this motel with my employees many times over the past 5 years. It is due to necessity more than desire. The rooms near the lobby are nicer and somewhat more modern and are usually given to the tourists that pass through. The remaining bulk of rooms are less attractive and reflect their age and neglect. This...

Came in from a long day of driving. It was a nice easy, quick check in. Clean rooms and great customer service. Didn't have the breakfast or use any of the amenities but everything looked nice. We would use this hotel again.

Stayed on a Monday night. Went to Bakersfield for student/parent college orientation. Usually stay at Best Western's when I travel. The Best Western Crystal Palace is conveniently located off of the 99 highway and and close to my destination. The hotel was quiet and beds very comfortable.

It was clean and quite and did come with hot breakfast. The staff not so friendly and couldn't fix any of our problems such as logging onto the internet. We were there for business so this was a huge problem for us. Never could use their wifi.

We had a room on the 2nd floor with a view of the pool. We stayed here for 2 and half days because of the kids and grandkids and the pool area was utilized extensively. The hotel staff was always very professional and friendly even though we did keep asking for more towels all the time. They were still friendly...

This property is very old and , in my mind, should no longer have the BW brand. We have come to expect less than great at the BW properties and try to stay int "Plus" properties only. After this stay, we will not be coming back to anything less than Plus. Everything about this place, most importantly the room, failed...
