Room was clean and bed was very comfortable. Staff were helpful and friendly. The front desk helped us get a taxi service and becuase the bar didn't open until 5pm were helpful with other suggestions.

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.

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.

Before we even arrived, we received an e-mail confirming our reservations and even giving the weather forecast for the days of our stay. The hotel is modern, clean, and furnished in good taste. The food was fantastic too. The best thing about this hotel is the friendly and efficient staff. We will return within a month!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by donelcia Welcoming stay
We stayed in this hotel to attend a Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses in Bakersfield. From the moment we walked through the front door, until we checked out to leave, the hotel staff made us feel very welcome. The service and amenities were all we could ask for. Having traveled all over the world, I would compare the overall experience to some of the luxury hotels I've visited.

This hotel is a great place to stay. The staff is incredible, the food awesome and atmosphere welcoming. Every guest is made to feel at home. Staff appreciate the guests, knowing that it's the guest's choice to stay at their hotel. I've never been disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 24Beth Fantastic service and awesome food
I have never dealt with a more professional, courteous and friendly staff. I am always greeted by name. Every staff person takes ownership of the hotel and they work as a well-oiled machine. All of us in management should take notes on their team building methods. Whether it's breakfast or dinner I've always had the best service and awesome food. It's my home away from home.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Linqueintl average rooms. average service. needs more maintenance
Building appearances were good. Facilities look well kept. A bunch of hotels all in the same area are priced about the same. Have stayed in most of them. Staff was friendly but not overly. Condition of the room was ok. Found the shower wall had a big crack in it. Water flow was varying during the shower. No fridge or microwave. Other hotels in area offer this but not all. Bed was comfortable. Some outlets didn't work in the room. Overall, average accommodations for the price. Nothing was outstanding or impressive. I would recommend this hotel only because it is in a safe area and you know what you can expect from Holiday Inn...just don't expect too much.

After staying night after night at various Holiday Inn EXPRESS motels, staying at a Holiday INN was like going back to yesteryear.
No microwave, no refrigerator, no complimentary breakfast. For Gold and Platinum IHG Guests you should give "Free Breakfast" vouchers to your "on site restaurant" for each guest.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jocon So much for Platinum Elite status
Booked/reserved well in advance a double queen suite and had to settle for a double queen standard room. We really needed the extra space. Very disappointed because we always get very good service at all other locations. Thanks for nothing!!!

This was my second visit in a span of less than two months and I found the facility and staff very pleasant. Nice quiet location away from the freeway, good food and if you can take advantage of the discounted breakfast deal. Well worth it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ann1972 Quality and service not up to Holiday Inn Standards
We have stay at this hotel 2-4 times a year for the past 4 years or so. The quality of the rooms and the service has really gone downhill.
- This last stay the air system in the room did not work. We didn't catch on till 1 am and then had to change rooms. Didn't get much sleep at all so the whole reason for stopping here was shot.
-We booked a room for 4 people, only 3 bath towels in a double queen room. Had to go to front desk for towels, took them 15 min. to find some.
- Pool is not heated, so it is basically unuseable, It was a disappoitment to the kids who like to get their pent up energy out in the pool.
-The policy change of no pets allowed was disappoiting. We travel with our house dog and always chose this hotel because they allowed pets. He had to stay in the car. Although this trip, he was probably more comfortable then us in the room.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BC Derf service good except restaurant
As having stayed at this location before, with good restaurant quality, we were very disappointed in the service and food quality in the restaurant. Staff, in our opinion, seemed more interested in conversation with themselves than providing service to customers. Rest of the hotel was up to expectations, but we will probably not stay there again due to the restaurant.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Natman One miss thing I always count on
The stay was comfortable and had the same great service we have come to rely on however, the one great thing we missed and always count on was the free breakfast. This is the first Holiday Inn Express I have stayed at that did not offer the free morning breakfast as part of every basic room purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Qual1 Good but could be better
Overall, not bad but it could be better with simple changes. Check in was painfully slow. Only one person was working the desk with about 5 of us in line. Finally a 2nd person came out to help. The water flow restriction device in the shower seemed to be set too low (even for CA) and did not have a good flow rate. The tray holding the ice bucket, coffee maker, glasses, etc was placed in the middle of the desk????? Had to put it on the floor when I tried to work on the desk. Need to find a better place to put it. Also, several outlets did not work (especially in the bases of the lamps).

Once again an excellent stay. Was there for a conference and the staff made sure every request was honored. The room was spacious, the food excellent and the staff awesome. Staff takes ownership of the hotel. It may not be their job, but they'll make sure your request is taken care of. Team work is very apparent. Every staff member respects their guests. It's a wonderful place to stay. It's my home away from home and the staff make me feel a part of their family.
