A Marriott hotel with well appointed rooms. The restaurant was clean and the food was great. The staff was very attentive to customer needs. As a Marriott customer, I appreciated the consistency and the quality of service. I can honestly say this hotel exceeded my expectations to its fullest!

We stayed in a family suite for 3 days, visiting family in Bakersfield. The family suite comfortably fit all 6 of us. The rooms were clean, modern and had a beautiful kitchen. Breakfast was wonderful, except for the last morning. Everything was gone, including coffee, waffles, eggs and juice. The staff was able to replenish everything, but at a slow...

The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. I would have felt better if the room had a safe in it (something I have come to expect in hotels).

We are Marriott brand people and find them consistent on point. This location was great. Friendly staff invited us to sit by fire pit. Room was clean and well stocked. Fitness center had nice working equipment. Best of all, free breakfast included gluten free options. REAL options in the form of cereals and bagels! Thank you Marriott!!!

Spacious 2-bedroom n clean. Location was great. Felt very homey. Breakfast was fine though almost the same for 3 days. Reception was friendly. Check-in & check-out were too swift. However, a big group of guests who stayed upstairs for one night were a complete nuisance who made so much noise till 2am.

Thank you for your recent stay with us. I am sorry were not happy about the pet fee. As a dog owner as well, I am aware of these fees and often ask the question of what does it "cost". For Residence Inn hotels it has been set at $100 per stay, and this does cost us about that much...

My visit started badly but improved. The security is good but a little off-putting, making you wonder about the area. I'm a Marriott rewards silver member but was never greeted as such. Ok.
