Nice surprise

Bigger than it looks. Staff (Vanessa and Dustin) were very helpful and friendly. Pool area was very nice, the breakfast selection was better than most, the staff friendly. The rooms were clean and the beds comfy. Overall, a great stay, we'll be coming back!

A Good Budget Option

Pros: Price and location and surprisingly quiet because it is set back from the road.
Cons: Security downstairs. Friendlier greeting. Don't ask for a huge deposit up front. No one else does. The exterior (including the paved area).
Location: Right next to a popular pizza place, a bar/restaurant, Costco for gas, and Highway 99. Movie theater a mile away. Very well located.
I got a great deal on a room at the Rosedale on Travelocity ($65/night plus taxes). So, instead of going to the Clarion as I usually do in Bakersfield, I stayed at the Rosedale. The exterior of the hotel is a little worse for wear, but the interior is fairly elegant for a hotel in this class. Likes: 1) I love the little fitness rooms that no one uses -- it is surprisingly well equipped. You won't need a gym. 2) Grand piano in the lobby!, 3) Breakfast included! 4) Walk to a local beer joint/restaurant and stumble back to your room, 5) Clean rooms and quiet, even though close to Highway 99 (ask for a room that does not face the Freeway -- most do not. Dislikes: 1) If you used a debit card, they ask for a $100 deposit -- it's an actual deposit 2) The rooms have antiquated a/c and heating. It works fine and kept me warm, but is dated and not operable from a wall thermostat. 3) The staff is not overly friendly. It doesn't affect your stay -- who cares? But it is indicative of a sort of "slightly run down" air the hotel has. 4) I HATED THE SECURITY ON THE GROUND FLOOR. The sliders are held in place with a normal lock, and then a flimsy, aluminum extra lock that seems really easy to defeat. I had no issue, but I did not feel that secure. Ask for a 2nd floor room.

Good Location

Pros: Good location - close to stores, restaurants. Easy to find.
Cons: Monitor the courtyard after 10 at night - close it.
Location: Good selection of restaurants, good restaurants.
Fairly nice hotel, however obviously an older hotel. Many items needed maintenance, repair. Very disappointed at the the noise from the courtyard at 2 o'clock in the morning.

Hotel wouldn't honor payment option

Pros: Reasonable room price.
I use prepaid gift cards to budget and plan my travel (modern-day version of the traveler's check) and when I arrived at the hotel they wouldn't honor the American Express prepaid gift card....even though they advertise they accept American Express! The gift card had more than enough cash loaded on it to pre-authorize room charge, tax and any additional ammenties. So, I had to go to the hotel next door....Courtyard Marriott...who honored the American Express prepaid gift card without any problem. I also stayed in one more hotel during my trip and they honored the gift card as well....without any issue.

Front desk woman is cranky

Pros: The attached bar and grill had very good food.
Cons: If they worked on customer service and hired better front desk staff, it would be an OK hotel. There is NO elevator.
The front desk would not even talk to anyone until 3pm, so they had a huge line by then. They could not find my Travelocity reservation. I had a confirmation and printout of the email. I was first in line, having waited since 11:30am, but because they coudn't find my reservation, they made me wait again until everyone else was taken care of. I was moving my elderly mother to Texas and she was very tired by the time we got into the room.

Great Stay

Pros: The location was perfect for travelers.
Cons: Updating hotel map would be helpful as some of the ammenaties are no longer available
The Hotel was clean, staff were friendly, and noise was never an issue. Although we had a small plumming issue at first it was corrected right away and we had no more issues. Room service was good if given the chance order the 3 pound burger, we did and it fed six of us.
