I am a medical professional from LA who stayed at this property for a total of six months, mostly during the week, while on an extended assignment in Bakersfield. You might think staying in a hotel for six months might be a total drag, but this property exceeded my expectations. The rooms are immaculate, the staff is friendly and professional,...

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...

My family meets annually for a mini-reunion in Bakersfield. Based upon the posted reviews and its central location, this year we chose the Residence Inn. I was initially quite doubtful, because after making the reservations, I realized that the hotel is animal friendly. We rented one single and two two-room suites. I requested one mobility accessible 2-room suite, as my...
