We have stayed in a number of Holiday Inn Express hotels. Some have been very poor in service and cleanliness.
The Bakersfield Buck Owens location is one of the top two locations which we have
experienced; the other is San Clemente Ave Pico location.
the Bakersfield Buck Owens location is very easy to access, has plenty of parking, is gorgeous inside (plain outside), with lovely public areas, clean/comfortable rooms, and excellent breakfast. The staff are down-to-earth friendly and nice and helpful. The pool ... small, against the freeway, not so great. But we didn't come to swim - we came to visit with friends, try local restaurants, sleep and be comfortable and safe. The location exceeded our expectations.
Thanks for a great stay - we look forward to coming back. [Less]
