The Bakersfield Area

Our centrally located hotel is convenient to all that Southern California has to offer. After waking up in a full-featured room and comfortable bed, start your day with a selection of tasty and healthy free Bright Side Breakfast® foods, or start your day off with a swim in our outdoor pool. Easily reach your day’s events from our central location in the San Joaquin Valley off Highway 99. It’s just a quick trip to museums, raceways, shopping and other attractions, and a short walk delivers you to restaurants and entertainment.

In the heart of the Central Valley, Bakersfield has easy access to natural wonders, cultural events and historic attractions. A surprisingly musical city, it is the birthplace of the country music genre known worldwide as the Bakersfield Sound, and its agricultural wonders provide lots to explore including breed shows, Scottish Games, museums and more. It’s only a short drive to the Southern Sierra Nevada Mountains where you can experience top-rated whitewater rafting, fly-fishing and hiking. The local dining scene is also unique with award winning Basque restaurants which are some of the oldest and most historic in town. Be sure not to miss Native American cultural events, casinos and the many nearby raceways.
