... carry-on to the large red bag then pull both large bags while wearing the camera bag, purse and tote bag. Quite a sight I’m sure.
This is an assignment that should be fun at the end. Dale and a couple of granddaughters are planning to come just to have some vacation time. Also I’ll be on the east coast for, hopefully,
the changing of the leaves and we have good friends in that area that we get to visit.
So off to a new adventure.
... will be close to impossible but I’ll try.
We have some good friends, Rod and Karen, who we’d be seeing at a wedding so we were emailing back and forth about meeting up. Karen mentioned that she’d gotten into genealogy recently. I replied back that we were also, that we were hoping to go to Poland to visit the birthplace of Dale’s grandfather and possibly his grandmother’s in South Russia. Karen said that they were also planning a trip ...
... Bakersfield, CA at 3:30 PM it was 95 degrees. We gained almost 50 degrees and an hour on the way. And, yes, anyone reading my blog yesterday knows that I got it all wrong on the time changes. But it worked out just fine. I never could understand that stuff.
If you see spots in my photos or blurry foregrounds, it is because I took them all from inside the car, through the smashed bugs on the windshield, as we sped down the highway at ...
Before leaving Deming, New Mexico we take our little "Tammy Toyota" for her third oil change of this trip! Despite hearing trains off and on all night we wake up feeling pretty rested and it's a beautiful warm desert morning. Heading through southern New Mexico and Southeast Arizona there is certainly not much to see--kind of like Texas!
... br> “why are we going this way?” and I said well Meadow’s Field is just over to the NE. Camilo-“Meadow’s Field? Not LAX?” Me- “What?, did you think you were driving us
to LAX? Camilo- “Yes, that’s why I came to take you to the airport”.
(LAX is 2-1/2 hours away) Poor Camilo, but we had a good laugh and he could already hear his wife laughing at him in his head!

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton Bakersfield
We stayed one night in July 2005. Got a $65 rate on Priceline.
Much better than expected
We were aware from previous reviewers that there was going to be contruction and renovations going on, so were not surprised to find that the elevator to our block was laid out with !keep out! tape as its not in good shape - we used an alternative lift and got to our room safely. It was recently renovated and had two double beds, given without request, in a large room. Efficient airconditioning, free internet, HBO etc. and free parking. The room looks out onto the carpark, and was not noisy. We paid $48 for one night and are very satisfied with this.
The grounds are beautiful and the area seems nice. You are very close to the freeway but the noise was not that unbearable. This hotel is in the middle of refurbishing. The rooms that are finished are beautiful and clean with extremely confortable beds. The older rooms are horrible, the beds are uncomfortable, the carpets are stained and the rooms are very dirty. We were promised the refurbished rooms when making our reservations but upon check-in we were given the old ones. We spent one miserable night in the dirty rooms and only when we threatened to leave were we given the remodeled rooms for the remainder of our stay. Make sure to see your room BEFORE you agree to stay.....It appears that the hotel is neglecting the older rooms, to the point of hardly even cleaning them. If this is the case, they should not be booking guests in them. The breakfast buffet was good but I would not pay over $5.00 for it. As usual, the chocolate chip cookies are great. The hotel advertises high speed internet but they were not able to provide me with a connection. They said that their service was down due to the construction at the hotel. They really need to expedite their refurbishing!
Doubletree should take their name off this hotel
This place was in really bad shape. The hallway carpet was stained beyond belief. The first room they checked us into looked like college students regularly used it for parties. It just looked very unclean. There was some kind of heating issue in the hotel where the rooms would get incredibly warm overnight and become stifling. It didn't matter if the thermostat was set at 60. I picked this hotel in Bakersfield because of the Doubletree hotels I'd stayed in in the past. I won't be so quick to do that anymore if this is a standard they consider acceptable.
Beats the Alternatives
I give this rating as above average for the area.Room was clean,check in/out easy and accurate.I thought the parking was convienent for a ground floor room.If you have kids with you the Family Suite is a good option.The breakfest buffet $5.95 a kid was a good deal also.
The Doubletree in Bakersfield is a nice hotel with plenty of parking and and a lovely pool / jacuzzi. Bit of a hassle getting to rooms from car which involved going down one flight of stairs and then up another - whilst carrying heavy suitcases. Lifts did not seem to be well located.
Major problem was checking in. Took 15 minutes to process the two guests in front of us and at no time did additional staff appear to help.
Rooms were clean and reasonably appointed.
Not very good, disappointed!
Stayed here and the bedding was not to clean at all, carpets were dirty, curtains really dirty, windows dirty. Not what we expected.
Meals were excellent. Front desk beautiful, lounge and gift area very elegant to look at, the rooms need to look the same.
Visited during Christmas 2002. Wonderful buffet dinner; clean, comfortable room. Quiet, all the ammenities; friendly, helpful staff. Chocolate chip cookies are to die for. We will definitely stay again.
Best hotel in Bakersfield
Probably the best place to stay in this area. A 3 star property,with very comfortable and clean rooms. Very quiet,although it's right off Hwy 99. Completely redone within the past 2-3 years. Nice big pool,nice lounge. Best of all,there are almost always cheap rates available online. We've stayed here several times for less than $50--in fact,on our last visit in Dec 2001 we paid $20 by reserving through Priceline.
