  • Older travelers

    Hot water.

    Vile - everything dirty. the only clean thing was the water in the taps. Do not stay under any circumstances.

  • Couple

    good value for money

    sound from the room next door; small breakfast;

  • Couple

    It was quiet...

    The room was fallin apart n there was no hot water.

  • Couple

    I loved everything, perfect room with every facilities you can think of, nice staff, good breakfast, swimming pool, free parking.

    cant remember anything that disappointed me. maybe the fact that jaccuzi didn't work.

  • Couple

    Nice hotel for a very good price but close to the highway so it might be noisy during the night

    weak breakfast

  • Couple

    Very good hotel with a good price but located close to higway so it was noisy during the night. The rest very good.

  • Group of friends

    I liked the accessibility, easy to find, easy to check in, easy to check out.

  • Single

    Rate and proximity to work. Clean functional room for extended stay had desk, fridge and microwave. Convinient stores and restaurants within walking distance.

    The rooms 100 thru 124 face White lane and hwy 99; traffic made a little harder to fall asleep but once asleep it was fine.

  • Group of friends

    The room was cheap and clean.

    The hairdryer did not work, there was a smoke sensor in the room which was loud - and the hotel staff forgot to turn it off however they had promised before. And also, the Wifi network was unavailable from our room.

  • Couple

    Perfect value for their excellent rates.

  • Single

    Ease of access Older building but kept up

    Parking lot needs more security lighting Breakfast is a bad joke not worth using

  • Single

    The staff were very helpful and friendly, welcoming me warmly the moment I stepped foot into the lobby. The hot tub was clean, hot, and relaxing. The wi-fi worked brilliantly. The shower was absolutely awesome. The hotel is right next to a gas station, a couple of restaurants ( Denny's and McDonald's ) and the freeway on-ramp ( convenient if the noise doesn't bother you ). On top of all that, the rooms are very affordable. This place is exquisite for the price you pay. I'm very happy with my decision to stay there.

    Had to hold the handle down on the toilet, otherwise it might not flush everything the first time and one of the rails in the hot tub was a little loose. Both pretty minor issues in my eyes.

  • Single

    Not a good expierence.

    After long hours of traveling found sirens four times during the night waking me up. The next morning as I was going to my car the trash cans were over taken with ants covering the sidewalk. After going to my car in the middle of the parking lot, opened the door and found the inside of my car also infested with ants. I had no food in the car to attract them. Had to walk down the street to a super market and purchase ant spray so I could get into the car. Office was not concerned about my problem, just making sure there was breakfast.

  • Older travelers

    Nothing this time, very disappointed in what use to be my fav place to stay in bakersfield. :(

    We have been staying at hojo since it opened.My husband and I, and other family members stayed there this past weekend It has changed so much. This has been my final decision maker, I will never stay there again! Drug addicts walking in the hall and hanging out by the pool area, smoking pot. Another female with her room door open approaching men, "for cigarretes" yeah right! I feel this place has turned into another "Ghetto Motel" too bad since this was our favorite place to stay during our Bakersfield visits.Sadly the caucasian lady at registration has no people skills, when you deal with customers as part of your job you ned to be people friendly, she was fr from that. Housekeeping never came to clean our room, and no we did not have the sign on the door, when she came I had just gotten out of the shower and I asked her to give me 15 min she said ok, I got back at midnite to my room and my room had not been attended to, "that really sucked" So will I ever stay her again or recommend this place, "no"

  • Family with children

    Location to interstate

    Offered a pool but the hours it was open did not work for us we checked in after the pool was closed and it did not open untill after check out time the next day so we could not use it not good!! Maybe they should open it before check out time to allow there guest to use it before they leave. The breakfast was not anything to write about but for the price of my stay I was not expecting much more.
