When visiting Bakersfield, Vagabond Inn Buttonwillow I-5 is a great choice to consider. Guests can enjoy the outdoor pool, along with onsite mini golf. Rooms feature bonuses like refrigerators and microwaves.
Pros: Great location and price for a road stop in the middle of the night Cons: Very loud. You could hear the highway and any thing that passed by within a mile radius. The fan and air conditioning were also too loud to sleep through
DO NOT BE FOOLED BY REMODLED ROOMSCons: Rooms though REMODLED and appear nice are actually infested with cockroaches as we learned when we were awoken by the horrifying feeling of them crawling over our faces at 345am. We held in our vomit, grabbed the pillows we brought, though abandoning the nice satin pillow cases as they had roaches on them. Got into our car to disgusted to even set foot on the property again and sped away to get as far away from the horror house as possible. The little sleep that we actually got was also consistently Interupted by what seemed to be a WWE wresting match going on in the room above us, the walls and ceiling have no sound proofing. Do yourself a favor and stay far away from this place, and if buttonwillow is a must stay destination for you stay at the best western next door!
Accurate Pros: The room was exactly as pictured. It was clean, bright, and moderately comfortable. Much nicer than expected based off the price. The floor was hardwood or linoleum which was way nicer than if it were carpet. Definitely worth the price. The shower worked as expected, no weird flaws. Cons: It was a little bit loud, we could hear the highway traffic and the neighbors when they used the water or something. Not unexpected based on the location and it didn't interrupt our sleep.
Older but cleanPros: The man at the desk was helpful. It was affordable, convient to the freeway, and useful as a point of rest on our way up north.
Pros: $50.00 don't expect a 4 star resort.Cons: Bed was like sleeping on the floor. Had a few bugs in the room and a flea in the bed.
All About SacrificesPros: It's cheap. It's clean. The air conditioner works. They have decent coffee and real milk. It's easy to get to. It had a pool that looked in a decent shape, despite needing a quick skim.Cons: It's sparse. 3 pillows, hard bed, minimal bedding, single bar of soap, etc. Breakfast area had been ravaged by families prior to my attempting to eat what scraps had been left behind. Luckily the coffee contained caffeine which allowed me to leave quickly for greener pastures.
Pretty good Pros: Surprisingly clean and well kept. The nicest cheap motel we've stayed on this road trip :)
Pros: Clean. Comfortable bed. Quiet. Satellite HDTV. Great value for someone going from somewhere else to somewhere else. Not much to see here.
Amazing Pros: The space in room the direct tv and the overall good humored staffCons: The area and so secluded from society but that's that area so no biggie
