We had a very nice room, clean and quiet. Beautiful grounds surrounded with palm trees ! and a lovely large swimming pool. All units have a nice balcony that you can sit and enjoy the gardens. Delicious hot breakfast. Very friendly staff.

This hotel is well priced and well located, plenty of parking. We stayed 5 nights over an extremely busy weekend, however the front desk staff could use some customer relations training, and the cleaning crew could use some also. Cleaners didn't leave enough towels despite requests and failed to service the room one day. Hot water was an issue -...

Stayed 6 nights to go to the NHRA CHRR in Bakersfield. The room was large and spacious and was very comfortable. The king bed was soft and we got a good nights sleep each night. The hotel has its downside though as the shower was extremely hot and the cold water tap made no difference to it. Needs fixing and...

We stayed at the Red Lion in Bakersfield based on their ad in the roadside hotel / motel discount coupon booklet (not really expecting much more than a decent place to sleep) and we were very pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious and very clean, but the biggest surprise was the cooked-to-order breakfast. Eggs, bacon, hash brown and hot coffee...

Wow where do we start. Beautiful landscaping all around The nicest crisp clear pool I've seen in years. Brandon at front desk was super helpful. Free hot cooked to order breakfast. Quiet room. To those who complained about missing laundry bags, seriously you aren't paying Ritz Carlton price. Also workers all cared about customers. Would stay again for sure.
