    « Excellent experience »

    Great place to stay Couldn't be happier with the weekend stay here. The staff was excellent, kind and courteous. The room (I had a suite) was affordable and very nice. I really have nothing bad to say about the hotel stay!

    « Clean, comfortable, and quiet »

    I stayed at Best Western Plus Wasco while attending a weekend driving event at Buttonwillow Raceway. There were nearby hotels that were closer to the track and less costly, but once I determined that most of my friends who had been to Buttonwillow on previous occasions were staying at Best Western, I figured there was probably a good reason for that. My room was clean, comfortable, and quiet--basically just what you'd want from a convenience hotel. There was a fridge and coffeemaker in the room, and ice just down the hall. The front desk staff were friendly and accommodating. I bring my own pillow and silk sheets when i travel as I'm sensitive to the bleach most hotel laundries use, and I managed to leave the bag containing them in the room in my haste to check out and get to the track. When I called in a panic upon realizing that, the woman who took my call helpfully offered to go check the room herself and call me back. She called me back within 5 minutes to let me know she'd found them--very kind and considerate!

    Little over price for the location, but its very clean, and staff is very nice, I would have stayed longer if the price was not to expensive. Even though there is not much to do in that area, other than visit family

    I really enjoyed my stay here. It was clean and safe the town is small and there isnt much to do there is. Dennys for food. But thats about it. You should def stay here because its nice and i cool place

    « Outstanding hotel »

    This is one of the best hotels we've stayed at. We travel regularly and Best Western Wasco provides an amazingly clean, comfortable, calming place to sleep. I say amazingly because Wasco is such a tiny community. We've stayed in many more expensive hotels that were nowhere close to Wasco BW. I won't stay anywhere else whenever I visit this area.

    « Great place to stay if you are driving buttonwillow »

    I was at a driving event in Buttonwillow and stayed here for the first time. It is a very nice clean new hotel .In the style of a Hampton inn. Defiantly an upgrade from other Best Westerns I have stayed in. Equal distance from the track to the awful old hotels on I5 in Buttonwillow . This will be my new track hotel and should be yours .

    « Fresh and Clean »

    What a Nice place to stay on our way home. The room was fresh smelling and clean. The bed very comfortable. Even the approach to the hotel was inviting. The landscaping looked cared for and trim. The driveway was swept clean and uncluttered.

    « Below Excellent »

    Checked in for one night while travelling through the area. The hotel is very nice and the staff was quick to check us in. Room with king bed is quite spacious and has all amenities, microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator.... The A/C was really noisy and we could not get it to low speed. We turned it off and used the fans in the room. Ask for a room facing the back because of road noise from the busy 58. Breakfast was standard fare with a bit of everything. We did not use the outdoor pool. Ask for restaurant recommendations from the staff.

    « Best Hotel for miles around.. »

    This property is very well maintained, and staff are friendly and courteous. They are also knowledgeable when it comes to the best places to eat locally. Have stayed there twice now while attending drag races, and it couldn't be more conveniently located.

    « Bring your lawyer if you want to use the conference room. »

    First, the direct customer service staff are wonderful, and the room was comfortable. My issue is with management and the "strict policy" the general manager set. Numerous family members came from out of state for my Mother's memorial. I asked if we could use the Inn's conference room the afternoon after the service, and was sent an email saying no, that was used "strictly for business". I said it was, that we would be reading her will. I did not get a reply until the day of check-in that the GM said we could use the room for $300 for 4 hours. The insulting and transparent game the GM played was unnecessary because I'd already dismissed the topic and had found a restaurant for people to gather. My father, also buried at the Wasco Cemetery, was a POW war hero. My Mother also served at Eagle Field and served humanity throughout her life. I fail to see how a small group of mourners who wanted to honor her memory could have possibly hurt the Inn. And by the way, most people who would have gathered in that room were Wasco Inn hotel guests! I want to know the GM's legal definition of "strictly business" and how he enforces this. Does he pre-approve agendas? Does he sit in the meetings to make sure they are strictly business? His actions were petty and uncaring. But he was the winner, he showed us who's boss.

    « Out of nowhere »

    This little place is in farm country but perfect stop on our way home. Staff greeting after a long trip, they were very nice,and polite. Even caring, the room was ready early. Very clean even the air conditioning was on to greet us. The room setup couldn't be better a couch and chair . We were very suprised at how nice this little B/W is. Everything from the lobby to the room. If ever in its proximity we would definitely stay here again.

    « Great Clean Hotel »

    This was our first stay at this hotel, Very clean rooms and friendly staff. Great breakfast. Highly recommend to stay there if around that area. Small city on highway 46 between Bakersfield and I-5. Limited eating facilities, so don't expect any restaurant other than Dennys.

    « A good place to stay in Wasco »

    First, this was about as good a place as one could hope for in an out-of-the-way farming community. Was it New York nice (and cost $1000 a nite)? No. But it was very clean, well appointed, and certainly a price performer. The only thing I would criticize it on is the air conditioners. As with most all hotels in mid-central California they are under-the-window units that, while mostly effective, are also noisy. Very noisy. This B/W Plus has its bathrooms about as far away from the A/C units as if they were in New York. And there is no fan in the bathroom. The result is that the bathrooms are hot and difficult to cool down. We propped our self-closing bathroom door wide open ... but it was still a bit hot. We had a room on the side of the hotel facing Highway 46. I had read the TripAdvisor reviews suggesting we get a room on the back side to avoid highway noise ... but this one was an upgrade. So I figured it would be quieter. Actually I couldn't hear any highway noise because the air conditioner was so loud. That said, the room was actually very nice. And very clean. And the breakfast served complimentary downstairs very good and convenient. And the price was right. The in-room big screen TV was incredible. I don't remember ever seeing one as big and nice in any hotel room anywhere. Aside from the A/C noise, I will stay there again and recommend it to you.

    « Business Stay »

    They need people skills and be able to be curious and ask if anything else is needed while they list what they can provide. For example if a wake up call is needed or any tooth paste, tooth brush, etc... this will definitely make the stay more enjoyable and comfortable.

    « Customer Service »

    Checked in to the Best Western in Wasco a little bit ago. Though this is a nonsmoking hotel I picked up a faint smell of smoke. Worried that tomorrow I may be charged for smoking (I haven't smoked in 30 years) I thought I better let them know. They insisted we move to another room and we're just as insistent they upgrade us. Customer service is obviously a high priority at this beautiful hotel.

    « Good Hotel »

    Stay here for one night with the family, rooms are clean, service is good and a breakfast is included but limited hours only from 6am to 9am so if you want to get breakfast on Sunday morning you must get up early, the pool was clean and nice. Would stay again

    « Great hotel »

    This was the best Best Western I have stayed at. The facilities were awesome (looked brand new), clean and staff were friendly and professional. Handicap room was great. I would definitely recommend it. The only negative was when I used the 800 number for the reservation I was told it was on Hwy 5 when it was over 25 miles away,

    « Worth the extra drive- Breakfast is Wow! »

    I'm driving from Cali to Texas and needed a late night stay. I had to drive 36 miles off my path to get here, but I'm glad I did. I've stayed at 5 Best Westerns / Plus in the past few weeks, from Texas to north California. In my opinion, the Wasco California hotel should be the flagship training hotel. Telephone reservation was professional and friendly. Both front-desk visits were professional and friendly. I was personally greeted even though I stood behind someone else after 10pm to check-in. The room is gorgeous, spotless, roomy, quiet, safe. The bed is perfect. It's so comfy that I'd love to take a nap after that beautiful breakfast!

    « Great place great staff »

    This is our second stay at this Best Western Plus and it exceeded our expectations again. The staff are so helpful. The rooms are clean. The location is great. We have stayed at other Best Western Plus hotels and this hotel ranks among the best. I wish all my travels would take me through Wasco.

    « Mostly Usual Best Western Standard »

    Not too bad with usual Best Western style and comfort. Pillows were poor, toilet barely flushed (probably a CA water saving nanny state thing) and gym had out of service sign on door but AC worked well as did the internet and it was clean.

    « Hidden in Plain Sight »

    Nice little hotel off the beaten track, but convenient for traveling through. Clean, friendly - we will stay there on our next trips to N. California and back. Denny's and fast food only availability in this small town.

    « Probably best bet in Wasco »

    We were satisfied with our room, bathroom and the bed, TV, wi-fi -- all good. Breakfast was a bit above average. But we had a restless night because we were on the Hwy side of the building. Loud MC and truck sounds bothered us. Still, we'll come back here when we need a place along this part of 99.

    « Exceptional Hotel Accommodations »

    Although this inn was a 30 minute drive out of our way, we thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations and breakfast bar. The hotel staff was exceptional and the facilities were outstanding. I would recommend the Best Western Plus Wasco Inn to anyone!

    « Clean, comfortable, friendly »

    The bed was perfect! Love the sheets. Room is a good size. I don't like the heavy door to the bathroom that self closes. I was on the 3rd floor, and though no one can see in (unless they use a drone), I would like to be able to close the heavy drapes, but that's not possible. The lower floors must have different drapes. The staff was very friendly and professional. The place is clean, clean, clean. The walls are a little thin, but it seems they're that way everywhere. Kids running down the hall and screaming at six in the morning is not the fault of the hotel but the parents. I didn't have the breakfast so I can't speak on that. I like the noon checkout. Had a comfortable stay here. Would definitely stay again and recommend it.

    « Friendly Staff »

    My husband and I were passing through and spent the night here on our way to Yosemite. I was very impressed with how pretty the outside of the hotel is. Also how clean the hotel is. Our room was very comfortable and spotless. There was breakfast included which was great. There was enough variety to please both of us. Christian, the gentleman who checked us in was awesome. He was friendly and polite. Overall it was a good experience. I would stay here again if I find myself in this area again.

    5
    « Business Stay »

    Overall stay is great. Breakfast is regular. For long term stay guest, breakfast could be skipped due to its consistency. Haven't had any guest problems since I've been here. Not a bad Hotel for being in the middle of no were. There are other hotels near this one, but they don't come close to the outdoor presentation and indoor quality and cleanliness.

    « Friendly in Central Valley »

    This is a really nice unit in Central California. The staff is very friendly and professional. The property is always clean and well kept with clean rooms, internet availability and flat screens. I really recommend this unit for anyone traveling in Kern County.

    « Nice place to stay »

    Not a bad to stay in Wasco, the best hotel in that city. Having the Dennys next door is a added benefit, so if you get that late night food craving or you miss the hotels breakfast. Good location located on Hwy 46.

    « Only game in town »

    This BW is the nicest lodging in town. It is also better than many other Best Western properties. Do not stay anywhere else in Wasco if you care about sanitation, safety, etc. While this would be maybe a 3 star motel in any other town, in Wasco it is definitely their version of a 5 star.

    « Overpriced, especially for the location and quality »

    Didn't get the room you thought you reserved: too bad - staff speaks poor English and doesn't really care to fix it. Thin walls, average amenities, not that great of location. All this for an extra high price. Stay in Best Western Bakersfield. Much nicer place, staff and price.

    « Excellent Stop »

    Good place to stop and rest when you are on a long trip and don't want to drive another six hours to get where you are going. This is a half way point between St George and the North Bay Area to visit family and friends

    « Good hotel »

    Good hotel in a remote location. Clean rooms. Pleasant service. Average breakfast. I would recommend this hotel. There is not much else in the area, so it was nice to find a Best Western. We were traveling back from the Grand Canyon - family of four - and we had a double queen room.

    « Very Satisfied »

    Stayed here with my wife for a Company event and i could say is thumbs up! This place has a very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were very clean and organized and everything seemed to work. Free breakfast, free wifi and free parking... what else can you ask for?! Had an awesome stay there and if I'm ever in the area i wiuld definitely stay there again no doubt!

    « Oasis in Wasco »

    This hotel is an oasis in a see of oil rigs. The hotel would fit in in citys like Beverly Hills let alone a small oil town like Wasco. The rooms are extrememly nice, staff is excellent and very friendly.

    2
    « Broken Elevator »

    Got stuck in the elevator for 15 to 20 minutes; need I say more? The hotel would be pretty good if the internet was faster than a snail (it was really really slow; almost entirely unusable), and if they properly maintained the elevator so that it wasn't so slow and a waste of time when you get stuck in it.

    « Best Western Wasco, CA »

    The hotel is very nice and clean. Adequate parking, room for trucks and trailers, and room is beautiful with many amenities. If you are sensitive to Road noise be sure to ask for a room on the back side of the hotel not the front. That is the only thing that I forgot to do.

    « Great Kern County destination »

    Nice, clean hotel with great staff that is both professional and friendly. The unit has all the amenities you expect from Best Western and the owners keep everything maintained and clean. The unit is a few miles off the highway but worth the trip. Great for both the traveler as well as the home away from home for the working stiffs like me.

    « Highly Recommended!! »

    This was our first visit to this hotel and while the city is rather tiny and doesn't have any amenities, the hotel was great! We were there for the Hot Rod Reunion at the Famoso Raceway and this hotel was right down the street, so very convenient! It was clean, quiet for the most part and the bed was very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We found our desk chair was broken when we got to the room, but didn't have a chance to tell them until the next morning. We left for the races and when we got back a new chair was in place. We will definitely be coming back to this hotel when we come back for the next race!!

    « Best Accommodations in the Area »

    Very comfortable hotel with nice rooms and a decent complimentary breakfast. Friendly and efficient staff. Relatively new property so everything is clean and works well. Good high-def TV (but the remote is not very good). Although I'm not a fan of the type of air conditioning units in the rooms because of the noise (I'm a light sleeper), the rooms have ceiling fans that provide adequate cooling at night with the AC off.

    « Well worth a return trip »

    We have stayed at this Best Western in previous years. It is still a good hotel since Wasco has so few to select from. The rates are reasonable and the hotel is well run. The have a good hot breakfast selection. The rooms are large and well equipped. We stayed on the south side of the building and it was quiet if you kept the windows shut. Since we don't like sleeping under A/C I opened the window but the noise from Hwy. 46 made it impossible to keep it open. The highway is a main thoroughfare between highways 99 and 5 so a lot of trucks use it to cross from one highway to the other. The staff is very friendly and efficient. I would definitely stay here again.

    5
    « An Enjoyable Experience »

    Having a staff that is engaging and helpful, it made our stay very enjoyable. Will stay again if the need arises that we have a reunion in Wasco. The hotel was very clean and had all the amenities you needed in your room.

    « Nice clean hotel »

    We stayed on route from our Big Sur drive through to the mountains and then Las Vegas. We arrived early at about 1.00 and had to find something to do for an hour before our romm was ready. Wasco does not have much or even a good restaurant so this will only ever be a one night stop. The pool was only available once we got our key and was well positioned for afternoon sun. Our room was nice and the beds were comfortable. We parked at the rear close to the pool so we did not have a hot car in the morning and were able to move luggage out through the back door which operated using our room key - very handy for the pool. A good breakfast and generally good service made up for waiting for our room.

    « Clean and comfortable with friendly staff! »

    We have stayed here a total of three times and have been very pleased each time. the staff is helpful and genuinely friendly! The room is spotless and comfortable!

    Room too close to elevator. It was noisy throughout night and woke me. Next time I'll ask for room at least 3 rooms down from elevator. Other than that the hotel was great and I will stay again and ask for room down from the elevator.

    This was a one night stop over on our return home after a 10 road trip around California. Wasco is just out in the middle of farm land but this hotel was a charm! One of the best we stayed in on our whole trip! I would certainly return when we drive through there again!
