Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ethelwine Cat greets you at the door
It was a pleasant surprise to find a cat at the front door. She is clean and friendly.
Like most Holiday Inns the property has been around awhile. Well kept up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Porkies Wonderful staff and food
The staff is outstanding! Their friendly greetings each time we returned to our room made us feel welcome. Sometimes hotel food is not that great, but not here! We found the food to be excellent, and the service great. I

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 24Beth Another fantastic stay
The 'curb appeal' is always great. The grounds are clean and welcoming. When I walk into the lobby I feel right at home. Front desk staff is always welcoming and has the room ready. The housekeeping staff is also wonderful. They're so friendly. Once again the food and wait staff was the best. The entire hotel staff makes my stays easy and comfortable. I'm able to get so much work done in a short period of time. I'm thankful I decided to give this hotel a try many years ago. I've never had second thoughts. In fact the staff at this hotel is like my family! I love them dearly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sebastiaan76 Great hotel
very nice hotel, staff is very friendly. Good location also for our trip from Las Vegas to Yosemite.
Staff and management really show that they want to have their guests a pleasant stay. We really got surprised by their efforts for my sisters birthday.
We only stayed one day but nothing to complain about hotel, room or staff.
Next time we will stay here again and say hello!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1st stay Faulty Central air conditioning
Since a 1 nite stay, I did not inform or ask to move to another suite or floor with a hopefully better Central air conditioning. Although I followed the air conditioning directions, my room's temperature via the digital thermostat ranged between 80 and 82'F.
1st trip to Bakersfield and if I choose a future stay at this Holiday Inn & Suites, I'll be sure to request a 1st floor room or suite.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CAL53 Great for families
We stayed in a two bed/two room suite on a high floor. We had two kids on the pull out couch and another in one of the beds. All three cuddled up on the pull out to watch TV. We had some trouble hooking up our dvd player to the TV - we could never get the picture in color, but sound was fine - spent a lot of time on this frustration.
Its really helpful to have the fridge and microwave - we were able to make simple snacks in the evening. Johns Incredible Pizza is just around the corner which the kid's loved. Also had pizza delivered from Rustys (good). Rusty's makes a decent tourist map of Bakersfield you can ask for at front desk.
The hotel is also convenient to the 99 and the new west-side expressway. Its one of the newer ones on this "hotel row" and is therefore one of the nicest.
The pool is indoors (yay!) and decent size. The restaurant is convenient but understaffed and slow, with only average food. Drive west down Rosedale Hwy to the shopping area for restaurants. For breakfast, avoid the nearby Denny's on Buck Owens Blvd (Yuck!) and use IHOP instead -- or better yet, experience local color by eating at the yummy (traditional diner) 24th Street Grill.
