I have stayed at this property more than a few times, and once again it has been a pleasure to stay. The new lobby/breakfast area is very nice now that it is finished.
My room was clean, A/C worked like a charm as well. I will continue to stay here in the future.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by James9 Don't expect to sleep
They are in the process of renovating the whole hotel, the finishes and appearance looks great but they really skimped on the necessary details. There is a set of train tracks less than 500 feet from the hotel, and with all the money they are putting toward renovating they were too cheap to put in double-pane windows.
I was woken by the train several times throughout the night, more than I ever have woken up in a single night. Which is especially difficult, considering I even lived with an apartment backed up to train tracks all through college.
Quite simply, the sleeping experience was the single worst I have ever had in a hotel and ultimately a place to sleep is what you are paying for. I won't stay at this hotel again and debating if I will stay at any Holiday Inn Express again after this experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rosstraveler Great stay w Holiday Inn
Great overall experience with Bakersfield's Holiday Inns on Hughes Lane. Fast check in, wonderful buffet breakfast served in the morning, and smooth check out process. Construction was in process during my stay, however,the front desk staff did inform me about the renovation. Front Desk staff were very attentive and they got me a quite, remodeled room. The new upgraded rooms are gorgeous.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fleatoad Remodeling woes
We were told the re were renovations going on in the motel. However, the floor we were assigned was completed. I went in to take a bath, and the stopper didn't fit the drain. In fAct, it fell apart when we tried to take it back out. The only thing that the desk could offer was the same stopper. I asked the clerk to be sure to inform the renovators that this was not the right stopper for the bathtub. Having arthritis, I look forward to the pain relief that a warm bath gives me. We stuffed a washcloth into the drain and I held my foot on it so the tub could hold water.
The door also didn't fit the frame. The dead bolt wouldn't latch completely, and there was a significant space on the latch side of the door. The light from the hallway shown in at night.
We were also disappointed that there weren't any vending machines on our floor.

Renovation efforts are fine, but it does affect one's experience. I also did not feel totally secure, due to the lack of lighting in hallways and parking areas (also due to the appearance during construction).

We want to thank the staff especially the young man and woman at the reception desk. We were there from the 16th to the 19th of August and they were very helpful, pleasant and went beyond the call of duty. They deserve commendation.
Thank you for a delightful stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by brielle26 Average at best.
My stay at this hotel was okay. A few things that are important to point out are that it was much more expensive than it is worth, the bath tub ran the whole time, and the maids came in my room when I had a do not disturb sign up. I also asked the front desk to come fix the leak in the bath tub and they never did. The quality of the hotel was not worth the price I paid. I am disappointed in my over all stay. Not one of the maids or service people spoke English either.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BchGrl Gr8 Hotel in Not-So-Gr8 Area
As published by me on Trip Advisor:
I was pleasantly surprised by the modern, clean lobby and it just kept getting better!
The front desk clerk handed me water & snack bar while checking-in and they were very helpful with restaurant locations and a map. My room was as requested in my profile, top floor and end of hall away from elevator,etc. The room was very large, totally remodeled and cool on the 105 degree afternoon. Wifi was strong and breakfast had eggs and assorted breads, pastry, cereals, yogurt, fruit, etc.
It had the best rate in the area and don't let the neighborhood discourage you. The parking was secure and I felt very safe in the property with a cordial and efficient staff.

It was a hot night when we checked in and there was a large glass container of ice water on a table to greet us. A perfect way to greet weary travelers. As Rewards Club members at check in we received water bottles and nutrition bars to take to our room. Even though the hotel is undergoing construction, it was clean and quiet. After a good night's sleep we went down for the breakfast which was adequate. During our stay the staff was friendly and professional.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Faa7 Good stopover location
This is a good stopover location if travelling from Vegas to San Francisco. Even though there was renovations underway, this hotel offered most of the amenities for family vacation. Our room phone wasn't working but the staff at reception offered us to use their phone without any charges. Also he credited my Priority club account with points for inconvience.

This Holiday Inn Express is truly a diamond in Bakersfield! I was very pleased with my stay and I will choose this hotel from now on when staying over in town. They are remodeling so I had to register through the back of building, but even that wasn't a problem. It was well lighted and the staff was great. Lots of luggage carts. My room was clean, pleasant smelling, the linens were clean and no 'visitors' under the mattress. Plenty of towels. They had even turned the cooling and light on for me! (important to a woman traveler) There was a minifridge, microwave and coffee. I would recommend this hotel to families or solo travelers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bella34 Great Service, However they need to keep Special Options in Stock!
Only thing that was Poor, was that we ordered the Lovers Package, but when we arrived they didn't have any in stock, however, we were credited $30 to bill, and given a free bottle of Apple Cider, tho we had no way of opening it. The hot tub is Very Large and Comfortable, i would definitely Recommend it!!

We stayed here with our granddaughter's soccer team for a weekend long tournament... Everyone on the hotel's staff was helpful and friendly both to our group as as a whole, and to each of us as individuals... They "bent over backwards" to meet our needs from a complicated check-in process, to attentive care of every detail during our stay the entire three days we were there...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by fittraveler Room great, Staff response and amenities not so.
The room was great and despite the renovations that occurring in an on-going capacity, the hotel was quiet and provided the necessary respite after the work day. However, I experienced some issues with the exercise facility that was not addressed. Three weeks had passed since I brought the issue of no signal to the television in the exercise room, and despite the time span, no efforts were made to correct the issue. On my current visit, this issue was again brought to the staff and I was told that this was the first the staff had heard of this issue. Nonetheless, a sign was placed on the TV that it was temporarily out of service and remained that way through the rest of my stay. I have had similar non-responsiveness from the staff in the past and would not recommend the hotel if you require service, but only require a room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Haggle Comfortable room
Check in was a breeze. There were plenty of signs up notifying guests about the remodel going on on the first floor, and how it may effect their stay.
I don't remember my room number, but was on the 2nd floor and the water does run all the time in the shower, and the toilet is rather loud after flushing. It did not bother me as I sleep with the air running all night, so that drowned out any noise from the bathroom. I only mention it as you may want to have it fixed as other people may complain while there.
All in all another nice experience at this property.

This property currently (February 2013) under extensive renovations. It will probably great once completed. The breakfast room was in a former meeting room due to the renovation. Disappointed that HD Channel selection was limited or not at all. Hopefully this will change!
