Close to the freeway and cheap

Pros: Cheap and new the freeway
Cons: see above
Location: Just passing through this time. Bakersfield Kern county oil museum was cool about 15 years ago. Haven't been back since then.
Not all Travelodges are equal. The one we stayed in in Bishop was lovely and clean and well maintained. The one in Bakersfield was not. The rooms were kind of beaten up and clearly needed new carpets and mold remediation in the bathroom. The heating/fan fixture in the bathroom did nothing. I think the fan was disconnected and the heat-lamp was replaced with a standard spot. The breakfast was excellent (scrambled eggs, potatoes and toast, and the staff was friendly and helpful. When we were in Bishop there was a nice PC in the lobby. This was handy for making reservations and checking the weather and local attractions. In Bakersfield there was no computer.

The place is old and tired but comfortable and clean. Staff is great. Easy access. If you are the nerdy type you can play your movies off your laptop onto the TV if you bring your own HDMI cable. A great value!

Travelodge room

Pros: Free breakfast
They need better Customer service! I will just share one of my requests I made .... we checked in and I called requesting a new chair (I need a chair with out the arms due to my bad back and hips) They assured me they were to check on that for me .... 4 hrs past and I called again for same request and I was assured they will check on that for me... 3 hrs later I called yet again they said they would check on that for me and I did get a call back 3 min later saying that they just checked the stock room and they didn't have any..... It took just a couple of min to check yet I called 3 times and waited a full day for a response to my request!

Not horrible, but I would look for another place if I visit again.

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: Poor breakfast, didn't feel safe
The room was clean which considering some budget places I have stayed in recently was a relief. However, there were no hangers for clothes and the staff couldn't provide me with any. Also, there were lots of long-term renters being housed there who seemed to have developed friendships and relationships which caused the management to treat all guests as possible thieves or cheats. i.e. The breakfast was too limited. I specifically had to ask if there was any fruit available and then was told I could only take one piece. So on my second morning, I had breakfast at next door restaurant which was very good. Also, I felt uncomfortable going from my car to my room and was relieved to be able to bolt my door!
