Another positive stay at a Marriott property on this trip to California. Both were Residence Inns. This one is convenient to the major highway interchanges and just off California Avenue, a main drag. Close to downtown (1.5 miles) and Buck Owens' Crystal Palace. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Room was clean and fresh. Being that yesterday was 105 degrees (a...

We stayed at the Residence Inn only one night but during the night a train went thru a crossing nearby at least twice and let us know it. There was also a serious emergency that brought a number of emergency vehicles to the neighborhood. The room was fine but again, no separate bedroom and the mattress was not comfortable. All...

A Marriott hotel with well appointed rooms. The restaurant was clean and the food was great. The staff was very attentive to customer needs. As a Marriott customer, I appreciated the consistency and the quality of service. I can honestly say this hotel exceeded my expectations to its fullest!

We stayed in a family suite for 3 days, visiting family in Bakersfield. The family suite comfortably fit all 6 of us. The rooms were clean, modern and had a beautiful kitchen. Breakfast was wonderful, except for the last morning. Everything was gone, including coffee, waffles, eggs and juice. The staff was able to replenish everything, but at a slow...

The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. I would have felt better if the room had a safe in it (something I have come to expect in hotels).

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.

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.
