... in......so a tow truck would have to be dispatched. At 8:15 that evening we were in tow and headed to the Cummins dealer for repairs the following day. By 9:30 we were sitting in the parking lot at Cummins with the blessing of 50 amp electric and water, because they were a coach care facility, and some ice cold beer in the frig. Tonight we'll sleep off the disappointment of the day. Tomorrow.....I just know our parts will be there as planned.....or will they?
I found a really nice bike trail in Vegas this morning. Cut my ride short because I was hitting the road on my way to visit my cousin in the Sacremento area. It is about 600 miles from Vegas to Sacremento, and Bakersfield is about the halfway point.
It was an easy drive. There was an accident on I-15 that had traffic blocked, and my Google ...
Well, how life changes in an instant.
So we had lots of plans, lots of trips in the various stages
of planning, but alas all has changed.
I worked out of town until just recently so that made any
kind of travel difficult. Then last fall our oldest granddaughter came to live
with us making any travel outside of school breaks virtually impossible.
We'd planned to ...
... I really need/want is really more than I want to spend and larger than I want to carry. A simpler solution is not to use the phone much, I’d wanted to use it to post blogs if I could find service at all, and to buy a 2nd battery for the camera then have 2 charged batteries. If I were writing a professional travel blog then I’d get the fancy stuff but alas I’m not there yet.
As for food, and I do promise to ...
... br> The crossing through the mountains was beautiful, with flowing hills, rippled like the surface of a lake on a windy day, followed by smooth hills, lots of them, flowing smoothly together, in many shades of gold and yellow, with dark green trees splattered here and there…such a wonderful contrast of colors.
And finally we were on the other side in a lush green valley with miles of citrus trees and grape vines. I think ...

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.
