This was the first night out, of a week long vacation trip. Although, unfamiliar with the area where the BW was located, was pleasantly surprised with the appearance of the property. Staff at check in was helpful with directions for our choice of somewhere to eat and was extremely impressed the following morning, when partaking of the breakfast provided, that...

This property is across the street from the Amtrak Train Depot. We did not hear or feel any trains. The staff here are quite friendly, always greeting you as they move about the grounds. This is an old property with nice wide halls. There is no elevator for the 2nd floor. Once inside your room nothing feels old. The bed...

Good staff, but rooms needed some work, and parking lot security was very poor. Was there for my daughter's softball tournament, and my truck was broken into. The thieves stole all of our softball equipment along with some other goods. Will not return or recommend.

Hill House is our lodging of choice when staying in Bakersfield. Conveniently close to AMTRAK but not noisy. The in-house restaurant was enjoyable, with friendly service and good food. The Zala family continues to shine in terms of friendly service, helpful assistance and attention to detail. Our several "business" stays were related to ongoing medical procedures & frequent follow-ups requiring...

This is a great hotel for us because it's near the lovely River Walk; it's near the antique stores we like to visit, and near the Woolgrowers Basque Restaurant with its yummy food. The room was lovely, quiet, and everything was a positive experience.

Usually give all Best Western hotels a very favorable review, however, this was our second stay here and on both occasions we were given a room that was not clean and fresh smelling. Will not stay there again.

The place looks better than it is, when I reported that there was a roach in the room the desk person rather non-concerned said "she had them in her home and you just can't get rid of them, I'll have someone spray over there for you".

We had a relaxing afternoon at the pool and stayed in for dinner at the hotel restaurant. Best Chili Relleno ever! Great breakfast. Room was very comfortable and quiet. Safe place for a walk after dinner and near event center for future reference.

This place made our stay here so easy! Convenient, clean, great breakfast, everything you need. But the staff...the staff makes it the best! Everyone is so friendly and helpful. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. I was beyond impressed by the warmth and caring of everyone who works here. Hospitality at its best!

There was 6 of us traveling together. We were in Bakersfield one night and this was a great place to stop. The bed was wonderful, great pillows too. We had a delicious breakfast. The pool and the pool area is very nice and clean.
