It's funny how, the more I need a warm bed and a warm shower, the worse my luck gets on Priceline. I saw Clarion come up on my bid and just got a dread feeling - since when is a Clarion a three star hotel?? - but I figured I didn't have a choice and should give it a chance....

Booked on Priceline, so didn't know the hotel name until booked. Was not real happy when I read the mixed reviews, but it was only suppose to be for 1 night. I am formally in the travel industry for 20+ years, so I am tough on hotels with my reviews. It happened we had a family emergency and had to...

What is a Clarion? I still don't know. Its like Comfort Inn, but bigger. Its like like Holiday Inn Express, except its older. Its called a Hotel, but its like a motel. With those questions in my head, it was difficult to sleep on that night. Nevertheless, I recommend this place. Mostly because there was no one at this place,...

On our 3 week trip this was the worst hotel we stayed in, luckily it was only 1 night. The room smells terrible, everything is old. They need to do some renovation. Breakfast was ok.

I stayed here recently while on business in Bakersfield. The room was excellent: very clean, comfortable bed, big flat screen tv,.. The staff was cordial and I had no issues there. The only ding was the free breakfast (you get what you pay for), I took a look at it and it looked pretty gnarly. Great place to stay while...

We booked this through Priceline, where you don't know the hotel until the end. After reading the reviews we went with some trepidation. However we were very pleasantly surprised at how well the hotel met our needs for a one night stop along the way. The room was clean, beds very comfortable and with the fan creating "white noise:" traffic...

This hotel is located right off the 99 freeway in north Bakersfield. Lots of parking, easy in and out. Check in was quick and pleasant. Located next to the check in desk was coffee, which was always available. The room was comfortable, with a small fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. We liked that the sink was located outside of the...
