    « Cleanest Hotel in 45 mile radius »

    This is a new Best Western (built in early 2016 or so). The rooms are new and clean. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is decent. Obviously you wanna go get breakfast at Jo's Family Restaurant, but this hotel breakfast is adequate (and included free). The pool is very small - they should have just made a hot tub. The workout room is just OK (four machines and none are top of the line) but remember this is Taft CA! I give it 5 stars just because it is an oasis of quality in a sea of mediocrity. You will only be in Taft for family or work! This is the place to stay.

    « Taft Inn »

    Great place to stay, clean and comfortable. The staff were professional and helpful. The room I rented had a very comfortable king bed, very nicely furnished. The pictures on the website are accurate.

    « Very nice accomodations »

    As indicated our stay was very satisfactory. We were attending a reunion and the commons area was convenient for chit chatting. The staff was efficient and helpful. The room size and the fixtures were appropriate for us. The bathroom was clean and the new fixtures were convenient to use. I would stay here again.

    « Great service »

    Great service and wonderful, helpful, and friendly staff. Location is good for local events. The breakfast was very nice and presented well. The check in and out process was handled very fast and easy. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Would stay there again with out question.

    « Very good hotel »

    Enjoyed everything of the hotel bed was very comfortable. Kids enjoyed the swimming pool. Very clean rooms and bathroom. Loved that they let us check in early since we were traveling from San Francisco.

    « Best in Taft »

    New hotel in heart of small, sleepy town of Taft next to the new monument to its significant oil history. Outstanding restaurants nearby, including Thai food mentioned on national television. This is the best place to stay in Taft.

    « Oasis in the Desert »

    Clean, quiet, and very comfortable. We were about to spend a fortune for a terrible hotel in a near by town when my wife found this BW just an hour away and it was well worth the extra driving to stay here. After driving for most of a day, we arrived late to a smiling front desk staff, who welcomed us and got is quickly checked-in. They are service focused and detail oriented, we are so grateful to have found this BW. Thank you!

    « Excellent Brand New Hotel »

    This hotel is a gem hidden in Taft, California. The town is very small - a few antique stores - you've literally stepped back in time. Our reason to stay here? Our son is attending the local college. The hotel is very new - super clean and very reasonable rates. If you need a good stopover before heading to the expensive larger places, this is the place to stay. Continental breakfast provided. Swimming pool, but no jacuzzi. Excellent decor - all new and tasteful.

    « Lovely hotel »

    We ended up here because there was absolutely no availability on the coast on highway 1 within our budget. So glad we made the trip. The hotel was brand new and great facilities. Clean friendly staff and great breakfast. Went to The Bank bar in Taft and had a fabulous experience. Amazing friendly people here and although not exactly sight seeing territory the sights of the oil wells for miles is very interesting!

    « Great Stay!! »

    What a great surprise to find such a quality hotel in Taft! The room was large and comfortable. The bed and sheets were great. I relaxed by the pool and the internet was fast. No more trekking to Bakersfield for a hotel like this at twice the price.

    « New and clean business hotel »

    I still do not know why or how I end up in Taft, but if you need to visit Taft this is the place to stay. It is a new hotel, nicely decorated and clean. The breakfast is a basic buffet breakfast. It has free parking and wifi. Basic business hotel, no complaints in a town in the middle of nowhere.

    « The best place to stay in Taft »

    The best place to stay in Taft. The staff are great as are the rooms. There is a very nice pool area and a park across the street. There are also several restaurants within a 5 minute walk. The fitness room has the 3 standard cardio machines and a weight machine. I used the eliptical and the treadmill and both were in good working order.

    « Wonderful Hotel »

    The hotel is less than a year old. Everything was wonderful. The staff was very helpful and extremely courteous. I was presented with a very cold bottle of water upon my arrival since it was so warm outside. I appreciated the thought. The rooms have fans which is a smart touch for the hot summers there. The air conditioner was nice and quiet too. Very pleased with my stay. Will definitely be returning soon.

    « Best Western Taft »

    This is a new hotel and looks it. Room, and bathroom were fresh and clean, comfortable bed and furnishings. Very quiet at night. The web site advertises a continental breakfast, but it was a full-on breakfast with all the usual things you get in hotels. Plenty of parking easy access. Front desk staff were very friendly, polite and professional, I was impressed. Taft is an interesting out of the way town well worth a short visit. I will be back.

    « Nice Hotel! »

    Everything here was new and first rate. My only problem was that the hotel is so new, that the room was still outgassing (probably from the carpet). Fortunately, there was a window, so I was able to adequately vent the room, once the sun went down. The ceiling fan was helpful in chasing out the foul air.

    « Great stay beautiful place »

    Really enjoyed the place it is a new place opened in late 2015, so it still looked good. I really hope it stays that way. Everyone seemed nice but Hector was very kind and informative. As long as it is kept clean I will definitely be staying here again. I would also recommend it to anyone going to this little town.

    « graduation experience »

    overall outside of the early hot weather a nice stay---the one big drawback is the late evening food options are none to be found after 9pm only 2 fast food drive thrus open till around 10-to 11pm either that or drive to bakersfield to have choices to dine

    « Taft's newest is best »

    Brand new. Quiet, clean and efficient. Located centrally near superb restaurants. Oil monument across street worth a visit. Breakfast was fine. Exercise room Spartan but adequate. There is no place better to stay in Taft.

    « Best hotel in Taft and near carrizo plains »

    We stayed here one night to visit carrizo plains and I was impressed! The hotel must be new because it was gorgeous. Very modern look. The TVs were all new, the free breakfast was great, the rooms was big, and the staff was excellent. It's worth the extra few dollars a night to stay here instead of the local motels. This was probably the nicest best Western I've stayed at!

    « A new, clean and well located hotel »

    Not always a fan of Best Western hotels, as they can be quite hit and miss?. this place was good. Room was large and well appointed, clean and inviting. The service was welcoming and tea/coffee station a nice touch. All Taft restaurants were within a short walking distance

    « Great hotel in Taft »

    A family group stayed overnight in Taft to revisit important places in our family's history. This newly opened hotel was perfect -- clean, comfortable, friendly. We would happily stay there again. It's a great value hotel.

    « Very Nice Inn in Taft »

    Stopped for a night on our way to Carrizo Plain and then Paso Robles from San Diego. A perfect location for our trip. Very clean and almost brand new. Friendly and helpful staff. Not fancy but everything you would expect from a Best Western.

    « Very Comfortable »

    Greatly enjoyed this super clean Best Western. It has the cleanest bathtub I have ever seen in a hotel. Beds are comfortable. Breakfast was rather dull, and passed it up. Kids would enjoy the make your own waffles though. Would definitely stay here again, on our next visit to Taft.

    « A great find1 »

    On our way to camp at Carrizo Plain my husband's allergies were acting up. We decided we needed to stay indoors and were pleasantly surprised to find this lovely hotel in Taft. (Didn't think we'd find a thing!) The hotel is practically brand new with very modern decor. It is super clean and well cared for. I am very sensitive to noise and this was probably one of the quietest rooms I've stayed in. The management was very friendly and graciously changed our room from one right next to the elevator to one away from that noise. We would stay here again.

    « Excellent service and new motel »

    Highly recommend this Best Western for its proximity to Carrizo Plain. It's the only hotel in Taft. Since the hotel is 3 months new, everything from the exterior of the hotel the rooms and the breakfast area is immaculate. The staff is the best part of the hotel. They are friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and are also accommodating. Breakfast has a mixture of hot and cold options. The internet connection is fantastic even at the far end of the rooms. Can't recommend this place highly enough. One thing, since it's such a new hotel, the doors tend to slam shut.

    « Best yet !!!! »

    On our travels the wife and I have stayed in many high end motels and hotels, but this Best Western in Taft puts them all to shame. The rooms were spotless, beds were great and a very good shower head. The outside grounds are clean and well groomed. The breakfast they provide is one to remember, very good selection and everything is fresh. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this Best Western to everybody.

    « A good place to stay »

    Finally a good place to stay in Taft! We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the Best Western Plus Taft Inn. We have been commuting back and forth to the coast rather than stay at any of the other local hotels. Now we can visit our children and grandchildren and don't have to do a turn around trip.

    « A nice hotel in an out of the way location »

    I have visited Taft on business several times in the last twenty years or so and although it is a quiet, peaceful town it's also one that's economically depressed. This last visit (last weekend) I stayed at the Taft Best Western. It's brand new, clean, and was a pleasant place to spend the evening. It's conveniently located so getting to the downtown area is very easy and it's quiet as well. I would recommend.

    « Taft »

    Very clean and maintained motel. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Rooms are well kept and clean. Would recommend this motel to anyone. Hector who works nights was always available when we needed something or had a question. They were willing to make our next days reservations for us. Glad we chose to stay there.

    « Nice asset for the town »

    This is a new building, has all the amenities one expects in a BW+. The desk staff was friendly, if a little new and stiff. The included breakfast was excellent. Our bed was comfortable, AC was powerful. The shower was in a tub, not our favorite design. An elevator serves the three floors. Parking is free and adequate. The hotel stands in a barren, gritty brown field, so don't expect interesting environs. Our only quibble with the Taft BW+ is the cheap motel soap they offer for hand and bath use. Think 'lye soap.' It wasn't up to the quality of the property. We suggest byo bar. We paid about $100/night. That seemed high, considering it's in Taft CA, and demand was minimal (the building was almost empty). The quality breakfast tipped the balance in favor of paying up.

    « Superb! »

    In the sorry town that is Taft (I was born and raised in Taft so I know), in death throes with the depressed oil market, this is a gem. Super clean, super nice, super staff! I wouldn't stay at the filthy motels in Taft but will always stay when I'm in Taft for work or pleasure.

    « Best Western Taft Califoria »

    Brand new hotel great rooms comfortable beds knowledgeable helpful staff. Ask the clerk for some fruit in the morning if you have to leave before breakfast at 6 AM. Stayed two night and had no problems.

    « Diamond in the rough »

    First time in Taft and i happened to stay at this location on the opening day. Everything was new and the staff was friendly. Did not expect much in the town but got my money's worth at Best Western. Wishing them good luck.

    « Opening Motel »

    Got to stay in a brand new motel. Everything was great. Staff was very helpful and the facility was wonderful. Manager was very knowledgeable about the area and fine dining in Bakersfield. We will be staying again on our next trip to Taft.

    « Great visit »

    The staff was polite, and friendly. Rooms very clean, and the breakfast was hot and fresh. I would stay here again if ever visiting the area. I really loved the set up of the room. It is the nicest hotel in the area.
