My daughter had a softball tournament in Bakersfield and our whole team stayed at this Hotel. We are a travel team and have stayed at many hotels...from check-in to check-out, this was simply hands down the best hotel experience I have ever had. The owner and his son run the hotel and did everything in their power to make certain we felt like we were staying with family, not just in a hotel. The owner even made it a point to ask what time we played our first game so that he could make sure breakfast was ready for us before we left in the morning. We met other guests, specifically one from Canada, in the area on extended business who also shared how accommodating Kal (I may be spelling that wrong) is. The lobby is breathtaking and smelled like a field of wild flowers swept by a cool crisp breeze; there is a common sitting area hosted by a flat screen television, where other guests were comfortably gathered. The breakfast room also hosts a flat-screen television and had fresh fruit available throughout the entire day (not just during breakfast). There is an awesome bbq and picnic area near the very well kept pool and spa. The rooms were abundantly spacious and most importantly, clean! The bed was incredibly comfortable and my 10 year old son was happy that the Disney channel was available! The website pictures of the rooms must be outdated because our room (307 I believe) ) was currently appointed and gorgeous!
Our whole team agreed; there is nowhere else we will stay when we play Bakersfield tournaments. Thank you so very much for making us feel like family!

I am a long-time customer of Holiday Express & International Hotel Group properties.
I've stayed in various Hotel brands the world over... USA, France, Germany , Switzerland, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Mexico , China, etc.
The Bakersfield Central , Holiday Express is perhaps the finest Hotel I've ever stayed at, bar none
It has the look and feel of an upscale "Boutique" establishment.
The Crown Jewel of the Holiday Express franchise
Ownerl & Son/General Manager,l are cordial hosts, and made my stay enjoyable.
I will definitely stay there again; and highly recommend the hotel to my associates

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good night A wonderful relaxing time at the Hotel.
We had a wonderful time staying at the hotel and would plan to do it again when we are in the area. It was centrally located for what we wanted to do in Bakersfield and having the Buck Owens palace across the street was a hugh plus for us.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by On the Cusp Large, comfortable room.
Location is great. Easy on, easy off freeway and right across the street from the Crystal Palace which has outstanding food and entertainment.
The hotel room was large and the bed was very comfortable. It was quiet even though it is next to the freeway.
Room 100 has a jacuzzi ...didn't use it, but it's there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SF Shakespeare BE TREATED LIKE FAMILY IN AWESOME SURROUNDINGS
This is our favorite Holiday Inn Express. We stay here often. When we walk through the lobby door, front desk staff immediately greet us with a welcome, familiar hello! The lobby is absolutely gorgeous - double spiral staircases, comfortable chairs/sofas, literature, television.
Our reservations are always accurate; the room is always clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated, including flat screen TV. The Breakfast Room is clean and spacious; the food is delicious.
Every time we walk through the front door during our stay, front door staff greet us with a smile. Staying here is a wonderful experience; we always look forward to our return trips.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hairdivaraelynn Excellent stay
When we arrived at this remarkably designed hotel(it looks like a mansion with the staircases in lobby!), we were greeted by the very funny, lively, accomodating owner, Kaplan. He gave me and my daughter bottles of water and just had the best (concerning attention?) that a stranger could have towards us. He made us feel special, like we were the only ones in the hotel. It is a chore making us laugh at 1am in the morning after driving 12 hours! He insisted we park under cover in front(where there isn't an actual parking space,lol) for our safety. Then, we made it to our room, and it looked as though we were in some extravagant hotel in a foreign country. Owner is from Dubai, and it looks exactly as I would imagine a fine hotel in Dubai would look. He decorated it better than any Holiday Inn I've ever seen, and better than some 5star hotels I've visited.
