Book a stay at our Holiday Inn® hotels in Bakersfield to marvel at the giant trees in Sequoia National Forest and tap your toes to the unique country rhythms of the Bakersfield sound.
Our hotels in Bakersfield are near the California Living Museum, a zoo dedicated to preserving the state's native animals, such as rare black bears and bald eagles. It's a quick drive from our Bakersfield hotels to the rugged landscape of the Sequoia National Forest. Spend a day rafting the Kern River rapids that snake through the forest's steep canyons. The river has both challenging stretches for experienced rafters and calmer waters for beginners and families with young kids. Or explore the forest by foot under the sheltering canopy of some of the world's tallest Sequoia trees.
Guests of our Bakersfield hotels can explore country-music history at Buck Owens' Crystal Palace, a performance hall and home of the country music legend's collection of guitars, suits and album covers. Enjoy a hearty dinner of chicken-fried steak and country biscuits while listening to rollicking Bakersfield music, the city's signature country sound. A number of historic restaurants have grown up around the city's Basque community, where you can sample Basque cuisine, a hearty blend of French and Spanish cooking. A hot topic among the locals is deciding which restaurant serves the juiciest steak or smoothest oxtail stew. When you stay at our hotels in Bakersfield, you can join the debate and taste-test for yourself.
Book your room at our Bakersfield hotels in May for the Bakersfield Jazz Festival or in September for apple-pie bake-offs and carnival rides at the Kern County Fair.
I recommend this hotel. good cleanness, nice room, and the best breakfast.[Less]
Very clean and staff was very nice. As a spire elite, I was very happy. Key lock on room was faulty and staff was very helpful and apologetic. Comfy pillows.[Less]
