Ample choice of food for breakfast, friendly staff, very comfortable beds, spacious rooms, newly renovated and clean. No need to stay in more up-scale hotels in Bakersfield. This hotel offers very good value.

We are Marriott brand people and find them consistent on point. This location was great. Friendly staff invited us to sit by fire pit. Room was clean and well stocked. Fitness center had nice working equipment. Best of all, free breakfast included gluten free options. REAL options in the form of cereals and bagels! Thank you Marriott!!!

Spacious 2-bedroom n clean. Location was great. Felt very homey. Breakfast was fine though almost the same for 3 days. Reception was friendly. Check-in & check-out were too swift. However, a big group of guests who stayed upstairs for one night were a complete nuisance who made so much noise till 2am.

Thank you for your recent stay with us. I am sorry were not happy about the pet fee. As a dog owner as well, I am aware of these fees and often ask the question of what does it "cost". For Residence Inn hotels it has been set at $100 per stay, and this does cost us about that much...

My visit started badly but improved. The security is good but a little off-putting, making you wonder about the area. I'm a Marriott rewards silver member but was never greeted as such. Ok. I can live with that. But I was pretty dismayed when the first room I was assigned appeared to be occupied! Beds were unmade and lights on....

After reading previous reviews we were hesitant about staying at this facility. I'm glad we kept our reservations. The facility was very nice, the rooms were beyond our expectations. We've stayed at the Mark Hopkins and other high end hotels in San Francisco and the Residence Inn was just as nice, and much cheaper. The rooms look newly remodeled, all...
