Positive Reviews

Swimming pool and gazebo.

One of the discernible highs at Red Lion Hotel Bakersfield is the wonderfully constructed Olympic-size swimming pool whose reflection of the surrounding greenery and sky-reaching palms stubbornly beckons you to try a splash or a lengthy relaxing dip. The gazebo overlooking the pool a few meters away sits serenely tucked in a garden oozing tropical aura.

Rooms with patio access.

Rooms with a patio offer stunning garden views and a prime spot for relaxation.

Helpful, cheerful staff.

The hotel has received a deluge of positive comments regarding the top-notch service by its staff who guests note gives undivided attention and stops at nothing to ensure guests enjoy a hassle-free stay.

Negative Reviews

Unwelcome visitors in the hotel.

A noticeable low in Red Lion Hotel Bakersfield is the presence of unwelcome visitors in the parking lot and hallways who frequently engage in nasty altercations, brawls and snooping on the guests making the atmosphere hostile especially for guests accompanied by children.

Signs of neglect.

Several guests have reported observing signs disrepair in some areas of the hotel including broken door locks, ill-fitting doors, water stains on the ceilings, and dated furniture. The elevator is prone to frequent breakdowns.

Lackluster housekeeping.

Musty smells in the rooms, clogged drains, stained carpets and towels, and bugs in the rooms all point to a less-than-stellar housekeeping standard.
