          The pool was a nice place at the end of a days travel

          Room was clean, bed good.

          It was a bed to break up a long drive. Nothing more,nothing less.

          Hotel staff is perfect. In a city not touristic it was amazing to have a room like this. I would absolutely stay in same hotel if I would go Bakersfield again. The view and the location is 10 out of 10. The rooms are absolutely the same as the pictures advertised.

        • Family with children

          Courtesy and responsiveness of the staff.

          I was given a "Total Price" on my confirmation of $80.99. When I got there, I was charged an additional $9.72 in room tax. "Total Price" includes all charges, including room tax. I felt this was deceptive on the part of And please don't excuse yourselves with what I got on the phone from you people about putting my cursor over the $80.99 on the confirmation to read some pop up qualification about "local taxes". No user of your website for the first time would know that. Neither the hotel nor would make this adjustment for me. This was very, very frustrating to me. From now on I will book directly with Hill House.

          Comfortable and clean room. Pool easily accessible and clean

          Staff generally friendly but unable to give any information about local dining or places of interest when asked. Frying oil smell from restaurant air extractor did not enhance pool-side experience.

          Price, location, and room was quiet.

          Clean room, good breakfast, hotel staff very friendly.

          Very noisy! Just happened to have a group of 70 teens plus tour guides staying there too and one of the guides started talking to them using a microphone at 4am. The bed was not soft enough for my back either, but was fine for my husband. Internet service wasn't working in the morning.

        • Older travelers

          helpful staff, proximity to an evening walk and good mexican restaurant.

          The Bakersfield environs were not inspiring, in fact seemed slightly sketchy. The breakfast was not as good as we've had at other Best Westerns.

          The hotel is pet friendly. Unfortunately for me, I had a barking dog in the room next to me. Although the barking stopped at 10 p.m., I had to wake up at 3:30 a.m., so I did not get a full nights sleep.In the future I will specify a room away from the pets.
