Facilities a little dated in places, however its very good value for money, Right next door to Buck Owens Crystal Palace, and well worth a visit in its own right. Pool is good too. Breakfast is great value too.

The room was coming apart, stained pee on toilet, wooden surfaces greasy, the pool/spa was unclean, and the curtains were stained. Charged an extra six dollars on the room deposit, would not recommend.

The rooms were super outdated- very dark. I did not feel very comfortable. The smell in the room was weird- had to leave the windows open the whole night. We had to wait 10 minutes because they dont Check in people before 3am. Service was neutral (not friendly or unfriendly) Breakfast is horrible: tea and coffee undrinkable- taste like water....

I had an appointment in Bakersfield and this was a nice place to stay for the money. It is right off of the freeway so it makes it a short travel time to wherever you want to go in Bakersfield. I would recommend it.

Stayed on 4-6-2017 and that will be it. I trusted in the red lion name, but never again. The lobby looked great but when we got in the room it was god awful. Found a sock just under the bed and a hair ball from some nasty dark haired customer. Red lion corp you should be ashamed.

call the day before you check in... had issue after issue with key cards and checking in. Front desk argued with me about booking and instead of just offering the available rooms, continued to argue with me about booking.

Room clean, roomy and very nice for a nights stay. Breakfast was minimal but tasty and FREE. Could have gone to Denny's across the street and gotten about the same for $8 each, so definitely a good add on to the hotel stay.
