Positive Reviews

Ideal location for a LA-SF road trip stopover

If you're doing a run between San Francisco and LA then chances are you'll find this an ideal place to pull-in for a pit-stop as, along with easy access to the Interstate, you've got a gas station, a few places to eat, and some convenience stores all within 200 feet of the hotel.

Outdoor pool is most welcome

It's fair to say nothing hits the spot quite like a refreshing dip in a cool little outdoor pool, especially when you've been driving for hours in the blistering California heat. Aahh...

Complimentary breakfast is available from 4am

Another good reason for choosing this hotel for your pit-stop is to take advantage of the early breakfast times. The helpful 4am start time offered here means you can get get underway with something warm in your belly well before the sun comes up!

Negative Reviews

Linens aren't the best

Whilst the guest rooms themselves have been renovated to a decent standard recently, the linens used on the beds are clearly in need of updating. Numerous guests have been left unimpressed by the threadbare options provided at the Bakersfield Vagabond Inn I-5.

Traffic can keep you awake in some rooms

Traffic noise from the nearby freeway can make sleeping at night something of a challenge when staying in one of the front-facing rooms. If you're a light sleeper then book a room at the rear or pack some ear plugs.

Property-wide Wi-Fi isn't the best

If you're trying to get online in the lobby area then chances are you'll find the hotel Wi-Fi just fine. Everywhere else though tends to be pretty hit-and-miss so you'll have to hope the Internet gods are smiling on you if you want to surf in your room...
