    « Comfortable beds »

    This location is right off of Interstate 5 and we stopped which is a night sleep on a road trip. What I need and want are comfortable beds and this property had them. Slept great. The only negative thing is the overhead fan. But it was mainly over one bad so I grabbed the opposite. I would stop here again on a future road trip.

    « Good choice if travelling the I-5 and require a stop near Bakersfield »

    Clean and comfortable rooms, along the I-5 but still quiet. Good selection at the breakfast that is included. Rooms are well appointed. There is an I-Hop near the property for meals. Unfortunately for us, it was closed when we stayed....closed for renovations but have dined there on a past trip.

    « Excellent stop on my way to Arizona. »

    I will always stay one night at this Best Western when traveling to Arizona it is comfortable and great access to I-5 and other highways. Pleasent staff and nice breakfast options. Two gas stations and a couple food place near by.

    « Great Halfway Stop Between Bay Area and Disneyland »

    I am a single mom with a young daughter, and when we drive to SoCal we usually need to stop halfway. It's always been a roll of the dice to find a clean, safe property driving down the 5 unless you want to spend $200 for Harris Ranch. The BW Heritage Inn was perfect for us. Big, clean rooms, convenient and within a 1-minute walk to have a meal at IHOP. (Pancakes for dinner? Sign me up.) Yeah, there is freeway noise, but turn on the a/c and/or fan and it becomes white noise. The front desk staff was kind and welcoming. When my daughter forgot her stuffed animal, they held it for us at the front desk until we returned 3 days later to get it. Will absolutely stay here again.

    « Very Average, mid to lower range. »

    « Gluten free and vegetarian breakfast options »

    Stayed here rather than in Bakersfield because of the easy access to I-5. Warmly greeted by Stephanie on arrival and given a very spacious room. I don't pay much attention to reviewers who complain about the decor, quality of breakfast and such. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Highway noise has to be expected - you're right off the I-5. With the fan running all night the noise wasn't an issue. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise. It is a small dining room and as such doesn't have room for eggs and sausages. But along with the usual cereal, bagels and yogurt there were two kinds of El Monterey breakfast burritos to heat up, almond milk, many types of gluten free baked goods. I've never seen those items at a Motel. Good job, owner. For a one night stay off the interstate, it's perfect.

    We were greeted at the front desk person so nicely. Our dog and cat were made welcome with no questions asked. Accommodations were clean well appinted and comfortable. Beds were firm - just to our liking. The breakfast was great and the staff attended to everyone's needs. We will stay there again. Manager Kavi wrote to thank us for choosing Heritage Inn - nice touch. Wish I had a photo.

    « Clean Rooms, Good Service »

    Although the exterior could use some tlc, the rooms provide the standard BW look and feel but in an older building. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast area is in the small lobby area that does not provide enough seating or space for all guests to be able to sit while eating. Bathroom and shower were clean and bed was comfortable for our one night stay. It is located next to the highway so light sleepers need to use the ear plugs that are provided at the front desk.

    « Nice hotel! »

    We have stayed at this Best Western before, and were just as pleased with our recent visit as we were the first time. The rooms are very large and well-kept. The nice addition this time is their "to go" bag that's offered for those who are unable to make it to breakfast. We had an early check-out and were offered fruit, muffins, coffee and yogurt, which the clerk put in a bag (with a couple of extra goodies) for us to take with us in the car. What a nice gesture! We will definitely stay here again!

    « Great pet friendly motel off of I-5. »

    We were tired, traffic was extremely heavy coming out of Southern California on the day after Xmas 2017. We were on our way to Sacramento and were planning to get to Harris Ranch. because of heavy traffic, it took longer than planned to get over the Grapevine. We chose this motel because it is pet friendly. Motel was very clean, beds comfortable, lots of pillows, quiet, and great stall. Highly recommend.

    « Bring your earplugs »

    The "big rigs" line up for blocks along the street in front with their smelly diesel engines idling as they wait to refuel and the fumes are quite noticeable, even inside the rooms. The motel is located up against a highway(I-5) and my room vibrated from the traffic. There is tiny breakfast area with very little selection in the main lobby. The room was very outdated. There were quite a few construction workers staying at the hotel and there were a group of 8 drinking and smoking quite late outside their room, just a couple of doors down from mine. Needless to say, I did not get much sleep.

    « Easy access on and off freeway »

    Clean well located motel. Quality of breakfast not up to usual Best western standards. We would stay there again, but other Best Westerns provide more - saying that, we had no problems. Reasonable value for the price.

    « Not a $100/Night Room but Good for a Road Trip Stayover »

    Pros: 1) The front desk staff was welcoming. 2) Conveniently located off of I-5. 3) The room was clean. 4) The continental breakfast was more than sufficient. Cons: 1) The room was musty smelling. 2) Flies. 3) On the morning of my checkout (which is at 11:00 a.m.), I started loading the car at 9:00 a.m. - my key card would not work to get me back into the room to collect the rest of my things so I had to go back to the front desk for them to recode it. Just an inconvenience ... key cards should work until checkout.

    Okay hotel but it's good for its location. The rooms and room decor is a bit outdated. The customer service is good, the workers are very helpful and courteous. Easy to get to location, right off the 5, great for a quick night stopover.

    « On Our Way »

    Would highly recommend this place along I5. Clean, comfortable and very handy to eating and travel Can hear some road noise and people above you but did not keep us awake. The staff is very helpful; my husband was very tired and wanted a jacuzzi tub to relax. They moved us to a nice room with a jacuzzi tub.

    If you appreciate the little things when traveling, good sheets and pillows, comfy bed, then this is the place to stay just about half way from San Diego to the Bay Area. Above average breakfast is included and you can be assured of a clean, fresh-smelling and quiet room that will afford you a good night's sleep.

    « Great location and staff »

    We stopped here on our drive from Long Beach to the Bay Area. Front desk staff was extremely nice and helpful. The cable in our room did not work and she found us a room with working cable and made sure all was good before we switched rooms. Even offered us snacks and waters. The room was very clean and comfortable. Freeway noise was not an issue. Warning the smell when you walk out of the room is horrendous but that certainly isn't the fault of the hotel. I will definitely stay here again next time we travel down south.

    « Stop for the Night »

    This is a little gem right off I-5 in Stockdale. It's a small property located with one other budget hotel, a couple of gas stations, an IHOP and a Jack in the Box. The room was clean and comfortable and surprisingly quiet when considering the building is within 100 feet off the exit ramp of the freeway. Also, their ACs have a constant fan setting option that gives a little white noise which always helps. I wished all properties had these ACs. The rooms' backs are facing the freeway and the window faces the parking lot and pool area. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. This is a pet friendly property with a $10 pet fee. We didn't eat breakfast as we ate across the street at IHOP. I would certainly stay here again.

    « Last hotel stay on 1500 mile trip »

    Being the last hotel stay on our long trip, we were very tired. We found the staff at this hotel to be very pleasant and polite. We had a good experience and would recommend this property. The location is on the I-5 freeway and very easy to find. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. Would stay there again.

    « Nice stay »

    My wife and I stayed two nights, on the way to and from Sacramento. The property was an average Best Western, clean and presentable, what we've come to expect and why we stay at BW almost exclusively when traveling on the road. The staff, however, were some of the most attentive and friendly that we've experienced short of an expensive resort. Kudos to them. The farmland smells were a bit strong but having grown up in a rural area, was almost nostalgic. My only negative comment about the place was that the breakfast area was quite small and crowded when more than half a dozen people were there.

    We decided to stay here after an extremely bad stay at the local Motel 6. We need an accessible bath room due my use of a walker. Room was more than we expected. Great seat in the shower, plenty of space in the bath room and room, and very quiet even with the freeway so close. The staff were wonderful and very helpful and welcoming. We will definitely stay here again when necessary!

    « Good choice for a stop over. »

    This is a very comfortable hotel which is just off the highway but there are no noise issues whatsoever. There is an IHop restaurant opposite but otherwise there doesn't look to be any other dining options nearby. Large, clean room in good state of repair with refrigerator, air con and ceiling fan. Be aware there are no elevators so request a ground floor room if this is a problem. Small pool. Breakfast area was also very small but we all managed to fit in, and although there was a limited choice of items the breakfast was nonetheless very good. The staff were all super friendly. I would stay here again.

    Air conditioning made noise and I found a bug on my sheets had to google to see if it was a bed bug or not there were lots of flies but staff was friendly. Breakfast area was clean food was fresh but the flies were bad internet often shut down and many times I couldn't reach the front desk the mattress on the king bed just killed my back

    Short but good stay. They do need an area for dogs to do their duty. Also the breakfast area was in the lobby and very small. As busy as it was the rooms were quiet. They were also comfortable and easy access.

    « Clean & Convenient »

    Convenient location, right off of Interstate 5. We stayed here for one night on our way north, in August 2017. The staff was exceptionally friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable, providing free wi-fi, a mini fridge and microwave. The complimentary breakfast was limited in options... mostly carbs (cereal, bread and pancakes.) But, overall, we were pleased with our stay.

    « Stinky pee »

    Stopped here last night at around 1:30am exhausted. We were traveling with our dog and took the last available pet friendly room. Unfortunately as soon as we opened the door it reeked of urine. Sure enough, there was a big pee stain on the carpet close to the door. The smell was overwhelming so I went to inform the front desk. I was told I couldn't move room and was given a weak air freshener. We had to smell pee all night. The air freshener was too weak to eliminate or mask any of the odor. We had to sleep with the window open and the fan running. If it wasn't for that we were so tired, we would have definitely left. I understand that the dog peeing on the carpet was not their fault (shame on you irresponsible pet owners) but they should have kept that room empty until they could control the odor. Our poor -house broken- dog had to sleep in the bathroom because of the pee on the carpet.

    « Working day »

    My stay was comfortable and peaceful. I had a good night sleep for my busy next day. The staff was helpful and very nice. The room was extremely clean and quite. I enjoyed my stay. I have stayed at Best Westerns for years and have never had a bad experience.

    « Expected worse »

    This hotel is out in the middle of no where. It's essentially a truck stop location. I stayed here because of where I was working was also in the middle of no where. When I drove up I didn't expect much from this room. I was wrong. You pull up and there's a fountain right behind you. When you walk to the desk the lady behind the counter is super polite and engages you in conversation. She offered me a bottle of water and some fresh baked cookies that were still warm. My room was located upstairs in a corner. It was quiet and away from the sounds of the big rigs. The room is pretty nice. New bed and furniture although the carpet could be swapped out. There was a ceiling and ac unit in the room and both are quiet. Not once was I woken up by the ac turning on. The bed is comfortable and I didn't have any issues falling asleep. The restroom is spacious and has good lighting. It could use some decor changes but that may just be my preference. At check out, the lady at the desk, someone else, was polite and engaging as well. Breakfast is what you would expect. The usual stuff, waffles, eggs, sausage, etc. If I was in the area again, I'd stay here versus that other hotel across the street.

    « an over night stay »

    This is a very clean, pet friendly hotel. Easy access to Interstate 5. Microwave and refrigerator in the rooms.. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Around sunset, when I took my dog in the doggy area, there was a swarm of some sort of insects...not mosquitoes. So, I took my dog to the front of the hotel grassy area....no problems. The next morning, we tried the doggy area again and had no problems with insects...must be the time of day. We would stay here again.

    Our room was clean and comfortable. The person checking us in was outstanding. I asked for the quietest room she could find for us. She went to considerable effort to find us a room that worked well. She was also helpful with suggestions for dinner. Breakfast was good. There was oatmeal without added sugar and hard boiled eggs. The motel is right off the freeway so very convenient for travelers.

    « Off Hwy 5 Great place to stop »

    Very clean, so close to the 5 you get right off and on. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was good and I was surprised at how much they offer for a small lobby. I will come back to this property on my next trip.

    « Great hotel right off the freeway! »

    Great hotel just off of the freeway. Convenient stopover for a good night of sleep to get back on the road again in the morning. Hotels on the 5 and 99 start to really fill up as it gets late in the evening, so make a reservation in the morning.

    « Clean room. A/C works great in hot country. »

    This is a nice facility right in the middle of rural country. Not many choices for eating at this exit but the motel was very helpful in finding eateries within 15-20 minutes of this exit. The room was clean and the air conditioner worked very well. Outside temperatures were in the mid 90's but we were able to keep our room a comfortable 72.

    « Excellent staff and accommodations »

    Great place to stay, staff was great as was the room. Also appreciate the Grab N Go lunch they provide when leaving early. I like only a light breakfast and it was perfect. I was driving I-5 and realized I was to tired to continue so stopped here, and the receptionist was helpful and actually worked something with the other reservations so I could have a ground floor room as stairs can be difficult for me.

    « Courteous staff, good breakfast, comfortable stay »

    Fantastic location off the highway. This was the mid-point stop on a trip from Los Angeles to Paso Robles. Because we arrived at about 1am, we asked to stay an hour past the designated check in time in order to catch up on rest. The staff were kind to allow us this additional hour of peace. We saw many families stay here with young children. We enjoyed a leisurely breakfast at about 8:30am. Good selection: bananas, hard boiled eggs and pancakes, dairy free and gluten free alternatives. We stayed on the second floor and had no noise problems whatsoever. Would highly recommend this hotel.

    « Ask for renovated rooms, close to office. »

    I had stayed here before in a room near the office, and was impressed with the nice room and quite, despite the close proximity to the interstate. but this stay I was booked a room closer to the freeway, in the far end of the Hotel and this room was in need of renovation and was considerably louder than the previous stay. The noise was not a problem for me but might be for some. Not sure if they are renovating and haven't gotten to this room yet. But it needs work. The truck traffic to the gas station blocking the Hotel entrances was off putting as well, but I guess is a common occurrence, which is unfortunate. Very reasonable priced stay, with nothing really major wrong. I did REALLY enjoy the wider variety of cable channels than is usual in Hotel rooms. They even had Free Speech t.v. so I was able to watch my beloved Stephanie Miller in the morning, SO GREAT! unfortunately FoxFakeNews was blasting in the lobby. I will be back to stay again, but Ill ask for a room by the office next time.

    « Who knew? »

    We chose this location as it was just off Hwy 5 and we were towing a 27' trailer. It is easy on and off the highway. The hotel has been updated and has ceiling fans in the rooms. Bonus, especially since we were there during a heat wave (110!). The ceiling fan helped circulate the air conditioning making the room temp very comfortable. The staff was very nice. We would stay again if necessary.

    « Best at this location »

    Stayed at this property 1 night 6/20. Husband had broken 2 ribs, so used toll free reservation line and requested ground floor jacuzzi suite. Check-in was easy, fast, and we were able to park just a few steps from our room (which we prefer, rather than interior hallways). Room was in a dark corner, which was fine with us since exterior temps were over 110 degrees Fahrenheit. HUGE room with huge separate room for jacuzzi. Desk with office-type excellent chair (I work a lot from the road and BW chain is famous for being a good place for road warriors). One other chair (there was room for 2 or a loveseat, but only 1 chair provided. Beautiful king bed with ultra-comfy mattress. STAFF is excellent at this hotel, from front desk to housekeeping. Why not 5? Because the jacuzzi was difficult to get into, being placed sideways, with only about one foot of space along the side, and no grab bars, and a water fill spigot that was dangerously loose. And the jacuzzi space seemed like an after-thought. Not the least bit romantic (if you're into that instead of mending broken ribs). PET POLICY (we usually travel with a pet): $10/night per pet. We did not see a pet friendly room this trip. BREAKFAST: very nice, with something for everyone. Several healthy selections (like almond milk, raisin bran, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs). Better than most hotel breakfasts. LOCATION: easy freeway on-off. Nothing much there, and good eats are limited (front desk can tell you where to go for better food choices).

    « Great quality at okay price »

    PET POLICY: $10 per night. We had a jacuzzi suite, which was nice for mending 2 broken ribs, but it was perilous getting in/out of that tub - no grab bars, and fill faucet was loose. This is the best hotel at this offramp - the other one across the street is horrible. Our room had desk with charging station, office quality desk chair, one side chair, fridge, microwave, ultra-comfy king bed. Strangely, in 115 degree heat, the bed was made up with sheet+blanket+sheet+coverlet. SO, we had to strip down the bed in order to survive. A/C did work well, but was a little noisy cycling on/off all night. Walking distance food choices nearby extremely limited.

    « Accommodations from 1 to 10 probably a 3 1/2 or a 4 »

    Overpriced for an internet room next to laundry room. My bad for picking it. Trusted that it was a "Best Western" The water problem effected all the businesses surrounding the motel so was annoying but not their fault. Mediocre accommodations with minimal surrounding food places (Subway, Jack in the Box, IHOP) Good news, is that, it is right next to the I-5 for an easy get-a-way.

    « Water problems »

    Warter was not available for drinking due to plumbing problems. We were provided with bottled water but it was 101 degrees as we checked in and there was no ice that was potable. It would have been nice if management had bought some bags of ice to be given out to guests. The cost would have been great P.R.

    « Fine place to sleep »

    Wanted a place to stay with my dog for the night close to the freeway and this met the requirements. It's very noisy (backs up to I-5) and smelly (agriculture/livestock in area) outside but my room was quite pleasant. The A/C with an adjustable thermostat covered any outside noise with just soft constant white noise. Appreciated the ceiling fan which you don't see too many of in hotels. Simple place to stay if you're just overnighting. No real restaurants or entertainment anywhere close by.

    « Located just off !-5 »

    Located just off Interstate 5 makes for easy on and off travel. A very pleasant, large and clean room. Divided bathroom with bath and sinks in separate spaces. The shower was a bit stronger than the usual in a drought area.The one drawback was an extremely loud fan in the bath section. As it was coupled with the lights one could not turn it off. The breakfast looked nice but as I was in a hurry I didn't have more than coffee. I did notice that most of the breakfast items were located in a corner so people had to maneuver around each other to reach various items. There was a nice pool but it was too cold for anyone to use it.

    « Problem fixed »

    The first room I was given on check-in, had an inoperable TV/cable connection. I reported the problem to the front desk and they immediately sent someone to check it out. After it was determined the problem couldn't be fixed they promptly offered me another room (upgraded) after they checked to be sure that TV worked. I relocated and was very satisfied with how the staff handled the situation. Overall the quality of the room and the professionalism of the staff made this short stay very enjoyable and I wouldn't hesitate to return.

    Perfect place for a pit stop on a long journey down I-5. Very clean, fresh smelling and well maintained rooms. Bed was nice and linens are good quality. Far better than any of the other available offerings on this stretch of I-5. Basic breakfast available and nearby restaurants. Small pool in parking lot. Friendly staff and quiet area.

    The building and grounds were clean and tidy. Check in was easy as we had reservations. All staff were very helpful and friendly. My room was spacious with good workspace, a hot and powerful shower and very comfortable bed. Breakfast wasn't huge but it was very good - there was an attendant on duty. Wi-Fi worked fine. There was adequate parking. They have a small swimming pool. There is big rig parking on the street outside and a small truckstop around the corner. Regardless of the trucks and interstate close by it was pretty quiet. I would for sure stay here again.

    « Another typical Best Western near a highway »

    Stayed one night for a weekend trip to Carrizo Plain. The location serves quite well for us, just off I5 and not far from the Carrizo Plain. The room and service are OK, a typical BW you would expect. Quite a few guests during the stay, the parking lot is nearly full, but we have no problem to find a parking near our first floor room. Room size is big enough for our young family of 4 and the beds are queen sizes. Very close to the highway but one can barely hear the traffic, maybe because we got a room not facing the highway, not sure about those on the other side. Overall, we are satisfied with the stay.

    I had requested a first floor room, since my wife was traveling with me. She cannot do stairs, due to her hip and knee. They told me upon arrival, they do not guarantee first floor rooms.

    Stayed overnight as a waypoint for road trip. Staff were friendly, rooms were spacious, clean, recently remodeled and appeared fairly new. Temperature control was easy. Even though we were towards the end of the building, noise from the Interstate was a minimum. The best part - less than $100 a night for a two-queen room, free wifi (most upscale places have you paying an arm and a leg!), and a tasty breakfast (pancakes, yogurt, egg+sausage muffin, hard boiled eggs, cereal, milk, juice, coffee, tea to name a few) for free before resuming the road trip! Can't be beat!! Would stay here again if needing a place to stop over!!

    The hotel is conveniently located off of Interstate 5 in a truck stop area. Well lucky truck drivers because you can't beat the price for such well appointed rooms. Large clean, updated guest rooms, a continental breakfast that has a great variety of food items and a staff that scores a 10+ from this business traveler. Fast food restaurants within short walking distance. The kicker is that they are right next to the highway, yet you can't hear any noise from the freeway. Great job guys, keep it up!

    Terribly rude check-in manager and the constant barrage of extremely loud interstate truck traffic noise made it impossible to sleep. I knew this would be a lower-end hotel, but I've stayed in much better hotels in this category. I would not recommend this hotel.

    « One of the Worst Hotels I've Had the Misfortune of Staying In »

    I had low expectations of this hotel since it is basically in a truck stop off highway 5 - the only reason we booked here is that we needed a rest / overnight stay on our way from San Diego to Sonoma. We made the reservation due to the good reviews on Tripadvisor and thought it would at least be decent. But, the manager who checked us in made a couple of snide comments and was rude - which added insult to injury since the room itself smelled like urine, the traffic is VERY loud and the hotel is very run down. We got a poor night sleep. The only good thing about this stay was that the room was relatively clean. I would suggest staying at a different hotel if you need to stop for an overnight rest off of Highway 5, this one was terrible.

    The Heritage Inn was great find! It seems out in the middle of no-where but 4 miles to the North is the Willow Ranch BBQ. Wonderful Meal and the place stays open past 9PM. 12 miles to the East is Bakersfield with even more amenities. The following Sat night I stayed at the Liberty Inn about 30 mins South. But the best Restaurant closed at 9PM. What was left was fast food establishments. I liked the TV programming at the Heritage Inn. The Liberty Inn is so lame with the limited TV programming.

    I usually only give a max of 4 stars since nothing in perfect, but I was so impressed with motel I would give more stars if possible. Stephanie (?) was at the desk when I arrived at about 4 pm. She was very gracious and even called the room later to see if I needed an additional blanket. The room was quiet even though right by I 5. I also couldn't hear anything from the adjacent rooms.

    I must share that my experience here was absolutely made (5) Stars in customer service by Kim! Yes it is located adjacent to I-5 making my first night of sleep impossible, but the care and kindness Kim provided made up for it. Upon my early arrival Kim was gracious, patient, and helpful. The second morning when I expressed my lack of sleep, Kim made my move to a quieter room effortless. She even went the extra mile to telephone before leaving her shift to check in on me. I will take some Hwy noise any day to be treated in such a welcoming and caring manner. Lastly, it evident that the owner of this property takes great pride in the service he offers to weary travelers... I am very grateful!

    The hotel is poised to accommodate road travelers in transit. It is right off of Highway 5 in the Bakersfield area. The rooms are clean, comfortable and stylishly appointed. My husband and I were traveling with a friend, and both rooms reflected the excellent standard one prefers. At the check-in counter, the host provided a plate of cookies, a welcome treat after a long drive. Even though the hotel is located close to the busy freeway, we didn't notice road noise, and the host provided ear plugs for those who may be more sensitive to noise. The room had considerate little touches, like make-up removal cloths, a small coffee pot, two luggage racks and many pillows on the bed. The question we had on TV operation was answered swiftly by the staff, with someone coming to the room to assist (it was user error on my husband's part!) The bathroom was spotless. Breakfast is provided, and the hotel offered gluten-free options that accommodated our traveling companion. We were hurried, so I was able to grab a couple of hard boiled eggs and coffee only, but there were many other options available. There was a breakfast room assistant standing by. This is one of the nicest travel lodges that I have experienced. I've stayed at this hotel three times and each experience was excellent. Kudos to the host!

    It was too late to make it to San Diego so we stopped outside of Bakersfield. We had a comfortable room, good TV selection, excellent WiFi, good shower, very comfortable beds, and efficient relatively quiet air conditioning. This property is just off I-5 so there is a little noise. This exit has the motel, a Jack-in-the-Box, a Subway and a gas station. Anything else is at least 5 miles away. Free breakfast was the standard cold selection with waffles and toast. The staff was friendly and helpful. Not a destination but a comfortable stop.

    « Pet Friendly, Nice Overnight Stop »

    This hotel is located right off I-5 freeway so there is a little bit of traffic noise. It is about 15-20 minutes away from the main part of Bakersfield, so if you are coming from that direction, keep on driving and you will get there (as we discovered). We were greeted by Mr. Kavi Patel, the General Manager. At check-in, we were given a welcome bag that included a few snack items, 2 cold bottles of water and a welcome letter telling us what was in the area (restaurants and stores). I was impressed with these smalls gestures. Our room for the 1 night stay with our large dog had a king size bed, was nearby the pet area, was clean, comfortable and fairly quiet. The temperature was in the high 90s, so the complimentary cold water and air conditioner in the room was nice. The hotel offers a continental breakfast which was enough to get us started in the morning. It was convenient to have the I-5 on ramp nearby when we were ready to leave in the morning. We will definitely stay here again if passing through Bakersfield on our way to/from our future vacation destinations.

    Husband and I were driving from San Diego to Seattle and decided to call it a night here. Even better it's pet friendly! It's an additional $10 a night though. It's right off the 5 so it's easy to find. We had a big uhaul with our car towing behind and so we needed to park in a very well lit area and this was no problem. We had a room on the 1st floor two beds -- it was fine, clean and a good size. No complaints really since we were just spending the night there. There's free breakfast - very basic, but it's helpful. Otherwise, there's not much food options besides a Jack in the Box. If you're looking for a place to call in for the night and you want something to simple with no frills -- this is your spot.

We went for a dip in the pool, which was nice and cold and had it to ourselves. Repeat the next morning. Full hotel but only one other family tool advantage of the pool.

    Great place to stay to get off of highway 5 and get some good rest. This has always been a good stopping point before entering the LA madness. The rooms are comfortable and nicely appointed and the staff is always friendly. I do want to point out that the toilet seat in room 101 leaves something to be desired. It feels like toilet surfing as it shifts from right to left depending on which way you happen to move! Not a pleasant feeling in the middle of the night! Otherwise a very pleasant stay.

    « Great for an overnight »

    Surprisingly a busy stop. (If they are full there is another motel opposite which apparently takes the overflow. Didn't price/visit that motel.) Choice of eating at this exit is IHOP, Subway or Jack In The Box. The motel is, as previous travelers reported; an excellent choice for a comfortable stay. The two story facility doesn't have an elevator. Suggest calling ahead if you haven't already made a reservation. Their centrally located ice machine strains to produce ice later in the evening, so get your ice bucket filled upon arrival. The breakfast was far better than expected. Noteworthy were the English Muffins (and other pastries) individually wrapped made by a California bakery. Good choice of all sorts breakfast eateries. The breakfast staff keeps things stocked and keeps the place neat and clean. Bottom line....if it is time to stop for the night you'll like this place.

    « Stayed twice, will again »

    Not a lot business around the facility except short order and gas stations. The friendliness of the staff, the room cleanliness, the bed, pool, et. al. make up for any minor short coming. Particularly liked the size of the room, was far from cramped. Bathroom not much different than the average, i.e. small with sink outside of tub area. Only shortcoming was that the ice machine dispensed very little ice but that could be a customer fault. Mostly a good experience for a single night to stop early and leave late before getting into the LA area.

    « Not what we expected »

    I know we shouldn't expect a whole lot from a place like a Best Western, but for some reason I remember them being a bit better than this one. This place feels more like a truck stop. My wife and I planned to stay here for an overnight stay on our trip down the I-5. First of all, this motel looks much better in the pictures than in person. While the room and bathroom was quite spacious, there was an odd smell of "old folks home" when we walked in. Not dirty, but I think it might be whatever chemicals are used in cleaning the room, or maybe it was the carpet. Not sure. There was also a giant crack in our ceiling and a strange attic door over the bed. This was a bit unsettling. The TV channel options were very VERY limited. We were surprised (and incredibly disappointed), especially being in a place where there is literally nothing else to do but sit and watch TV. The beds were decent. Not wonderful, but was able to get a decent night's rest. They do offer a late checkout (as late as 1PM) in case you really wanted to sleep in. They offer a disappointing continental breakfast. While I have had continental breakfasts before, this had to be one of the worst. I've never seen each pastry or bread item individually wrapped before. And everything tasted old and mediocre. The best part were the "make-your-own-pancakes" (not waffles...pancakes). Just push a button and wait a couple of minutes for it spit out two small rubbery pancakes onto your paper plate. The eating area was incredibly small and cramped...a small corner of the lobby. They also have an attendant watching us like a hawk, I guess to keep people from eating too much food(?). Very awkward and uncomfortable. Oh, and after all that, we were still hungry. So much for the included breakfast. We ended up having to buy out later. Bottom line is that while this place did the job of providing a place to sleep the night for me and my wife, it certainly would have been better for us to cough up a couple of extra bucks to stay at a nicer place in downtown Bakersfield. Even if they didn't include breakfast, we would have to buy something anyway. Stay here only if you're desperate.

    We were tired of driving, just pulled off the road not knowing what to expect and found this Best Western next to a Vagabond Inn and decided to stay. We are crazy travelers, we don't always make reservations, we take our chances with familiar chain hotels, so we know a good find when we find one. The rooms were very clean, spacious, the customer service was super nice and a breakfast menu included food for people with food sensitivities. The seating area was small for breakfast, two small tables and a coffee table with a couch and a couple of chairs. They offered gluten free baked goods and almond milk which I have never seen offered at free breakfasts. Great Place to stop off if you are ever on I-5 and need to stop off. Ask for the Manager Special, it's better than AAA discount.

    Clean, quiet, convenient & safe. They even have almond milk! The Desk clerk went out of her way to find my best western membership # which always seems to be "lost" when I try to get points for my BW stays. Pool looked clean & water hot. Cold fridge, micro & coffee maker in room. Thx??

    « Great Place »

    Great place to stay, clean, close to the freeway, restaurants and gas available. Professional run with excellent customer service. Definitely would stay again if in the area. Only thing disappointing was there was no elevator to get to the second floor so it was a challenge if you have heavy pieces of luggage.

    « Good Point to Stop »

    This was at end of day one on way to Arizona. Very easy to locate & get checked in for the night. Welcomed with warm cookies. Very tasty. breakfast was usual menu but tasty. Always a great chain for the value.

    « Pet odor be gone »

    We traveled with a small dog and experienced some pet friendly rooms you could tell were Pet odor rooms. Not here! It was a great choice off the free-way. Although, the dog could hear the traffic, I could not.

    « Great stopover if on I-5 »

    Easy on-off I-5 after/before Grapevine. Extra large rooms, friendly staff. Pool in season. (Hotel is not on route of I-99 to Yosemite.) Several restaurants nearby. Comfortable bed and lighting with plenty of parking.

    Nice, spotless room, great service, fantastic breakfast with a large variety of foods and coffee. Only complaint, ceiling fan buzzed and rattled. So close to freeway there is road noise if the window is open.

    « Passing Through »

    We needed to stay overnight before continuing our trip and this was a very comfortable room and bed. We did have very noisy neighbors upstairs but that could not be contributed to the hotel quality; just heavy footed individuals!.

    « Worked out perfect »

    I booked this hotel from Best Western App after a long day and couldn't drive any longer. The hotel was convenient to the freeway, the lobby was nice, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The price was great, I would stay here again if I am in the area

    « Ok stay. »

    Had an okay stay att this hotel. The staff were friendly and the parking was free and good. The room was clean but a little bit old. The Bathroom was ok and clean. The breakfast is minimalistic and not so nice but it works. It was safe and not noisy.

    « Reasonable overnight stop on the I-5 crawl »

    It's a clean, reasonable highway overnight stop. On this stretch of I-5 (Buttonwillow to west Bakersfield), your choices are between this and the Vagabond Inn, Motel 6, Super8, Econolodge - all around 80-90 minutes north once you get out of the LA grind. I would generally consider BW a little better then those others. There's a few similar options 45 minutes back at Grapevine (Ramada, HI) so it's a matter of where you'd need to rest. Although it's also worth mentioning that depending on the time of year, you may smell a bit more of the farm life on this stretch of the highway, YMMV. Still, this Best Western seems as if it's been remodeled or well cleaned in the past couple of years - furnishings, carpets, upholstery is all in nice shape, clean, well lit, and maintained so worth the few dollars more than the Vagabond next door. You might get a little highway noise but I didn't notice it. Decent amount of space, internet access, standard self-serve breakfast options, otherwise there is an iHop just down the street. Kids happy. Momma happy. Dad too. Used this for the standard Disneyland run, as I see others have as well. ;)

    « Good for a quick stop »

    We reserved this hotel for a quick night's rest on our drive to Disneyland. We stopped in around 10:30pm, had a quick and painless check-in, and found our room easily. Our three kids were sleeping in the car, but woke up when we went inside our room. Our heater quickly warmed up the room, which was decently sized, and contained two clean, comfortable queen beds. There was a desk with a chair, and another large chair. The sink was large, and bathroom was average sized, but everything was clean and set up nicely. We couldn't find cartoons on tv, but it wasn't too bad. We woke up around 6am, showered, and headed to breakfast. It was a simple, free breakfast in the lobby including coffee, limited pastries, apples, bananas, yogurt, and a made to order DIY pancake machine. The breakfast was a nice touch to a decently priced room so we could fuel up before getting on our way to L.A. We would be glad to stay here again on our way down south.

    « Nice stay »

    After Driving about four hours from San Diego we decided to take a break for the next day and stop here. I got out of the car to a bad smell. I joked about it to the lady at the front desk and she said that there is a dairy down the street. To be expected in Bakersfield. We get to our room and to our surprise it was real nice for the middle of no where. I would stay there again. My two pugs like it too!!

    « Bad Night »

    Our stay started out poorly and got worse. It took 18 miles on local roads to reach here from CA58. This is not all their fault but it wasn't fun. I had received two e-mails from Best Western saying they were excited about our upcoming stay with them. I wasn't very happy when I arrived and it took 10 minute to prove I had a reservation ..... thank God I had saved a copy off the internet. The room was run down and in a poor area of town. The free breakfast next morning was so crowded (very small eating area) and looked so unappetizing we ate at the IHOP around the corner. The only good item was that it sits on Route 5 and we had no trouble getting started on our next part of the trip. Would not stay here again ..... too old and too expensive ($100).

    « DON'T STAY AT THIS BEST WESTERN HOTEL »

    This Bakersfield Best Western hotel is TERRBILE - stay anywhere else!! There is no value here! We paid $100 for a night's stay - what a rip off! The bed was AWFUL (lumpy and the mattress was very uneven). The HVAC unit did not work properly (sounded like a jet engine taking off). The room was dirty, the shower pressure nil and the bathroom sink plugged up (did not drain).

    « Super Nice Staff »

    The staff here at Best Western Heritage Inn, Bakersfield, CA are so very nice and genuinely care about my stay and the quality of the hotel for their customers. I will stay at this Best Western again, and again and again....

    « Good value, clean, spacious »

    Staff was very courteous, room was spotless, and bed was very comfortable. Had separate bathroom/shower with sink outside and lots of counter space. Very pleasant stay, although pretty much in the middle of nowhere. If you stay, try the Willow Ranch Restaurant at the next exit north.

    « Worth the stay »

    I've stayed at this Best Western several times on my California trips. This Best Western is very clean, very up to day. Comfortable beds, pillows and they have remodeled the rooms to keep it up to date. The only complaint I have is that every time I picked my phone up, I had to re log into the internet which was a pain. I would stay here again for the price and value. Overall, it's a clean and quality Best Western

    « Happy to recommend »

    We chose Best Western as it appeared to have decent ratings and was a convenient stop over for our driving holiday. We had the Spa Suite (107) - it was spacious with a very comfortable king bed, flat screen, big open plan bath and decent wifi. Bed sheets could do with a replace, they were a little pilled and worn. Continental breakfast was the usual fare, but the little muffins seemed a day or two past use by, I can't quite find a hotel chain that delivers fresh muffins daily, so if anyone knows of accommodation that does, please inbox me. Hotel is dated, but warm and friendly enough. It's not designed to be the destination, more a good night's sleep on your way to a destination. Scary toilet though, it sounded like those you find on a large jet plane. The sound is almost deafening and it was a shock to the senses during the night time, er....constitutional...... Photos of this room are available upon request.

    « Great Stay off the 5! »

    This hotel is a great pick if you are driving from Southern CA to Northern. It is clean, comfortable bed and breakfast is on par to other hotel breakfasts. There's an Ihop close by if you want something more. Other than Ihop and Jack in the Box there isn't much around, but other than that it was a great stay! Friendly Staff makes it even better!

    « New, very nice and practically empty »

    I guess people don't know about this very nice Best Western out on Interstate 5 just west of Bakersfield. We found it by luck and were pleasantly surprised. Very nice rooms and super service. Breakfast was more than adequate. IHOP was actually pretty good for diner. Your only other choice is Jack-in-the Box or Subway. This is an excellent hotel if traveling along 5. Other than the 3 restaurants and two gas stations there is nothing here.

    « Better than I expected »

    The room was very spacious and clean. Refrigerator and microwave a plus. Right next to I-5 but other than that in the middle of nowhere. One other hotel, two gas stations, Jack-In-The-Box, Subway, and IHop are the only things within miles.

    « clean room »

    « great wayside, pet friendly motel »

    A small, but very clean room. Perfect for our needs. Courteous and helpful staff and a very good breakfast comes with the room. Truly a pet friendly place with plenty of places to "walk" your dog. I good value and I would recommend it for anyway with a requirement to stay for a night.

    « Road noise »

    Too close to I-5. Passing trucks shook the room non-stop all night. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The rooms and beds were Ok for the price, which was well below what we had paid our whole 2 week trip.

    « Hotel review »

    Best Western Heritage, Bakersfield, CA is an excellent place to stay while transversing on Hi 5. It is well located, clean, nicely priced, and the staff is great. I was much impressed with how clean and orderly the hotel was and how well stocked the breakfast room was. The clerk who booked our reservation and checked us in was very helpful.

    « Weary Travelers »

    We were on our way to Oregon and needed to stop for the night. we used the 800# service for Best Western to locate a place close to where we were on our trip. They found and reserved the Best Western Heritage Inn in Bakersfield. We were pleasantly surprised by the room, cleanliness, friendly staff, etc. Breakfast was good - with a little something for everyone. Surprisingly - next to the freeway but no freeway noise. Was a great place for a brief overnight stay.

    « On the outskirts of town »

    The motel is clean and reasonably appointed. It could definitely use a strip outlet near the desk inn the rooms. All of the towels are of decent quality and the shower head has a pulsating feature desired by the long distance traveler. The bedding as well as the bed was first quality and the flat screen accompanied the Direct TV service. The down side to this property is there are two filling stations that sell fuel at a ridiculous price, so fill up before getting here. There isn't a great choice for restaurants (Jack In The Box and IHOP) and delivery out here is out of the question. The breakfast is basic but good and the staff and management are very attentive. Stayed two nights this trip and that included Labor Day. Would come again!
