The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

... promises that help would arrive in 90 minutes. We broke down at 12:09 pm, and we were on the road via tow truck at 8:30 pm. A long day, a hot, 100+ degree day! On the bright side, I am so grateful we had the generator so we were able to stay cool and watch a movie.

The Ugly: By the time the tow truck got us to the Cummins repair shop in Bakersfield, CA., and the drive shaft was reinstalled, (had to be dropped for towing) it was nearly 10:00 pm. The ...

Place to sleep before heading to Sequoia Ntl. Park

A travel blog entry by thepaynes2014

This is a top pick!

... If the roads are closed or they require an inspection to assure we have chains for the car, we will NOT be able to enter the parks. Oh well!! That possibility also exists on the Northern route and thru Yellowstone when we get there. I told Rhonda we will just play it by ear, and if we can't.........we can't. Still a wonderful trip that we will be thankful for the rest of our lives.

Stay tuned.

Supernatural Aid!!

A travel blog entry by catarinoforlife

We left from La Verne at around 10am this morning. We had originally planned to leave at 6am, but sleepy-heads and showers took up four hours to finally begin rolling. We arrived at Bakersfield at around2pm.

It was quite an adventure! And boy did we get our Supernatural aid! My numbskull of a buddy didn't check his tire pressures before we left, and of course, neither did I! So, coming down the grapevine we got a flat. Luckily, we were nearly at the bottom and could pull ...

Food and Backpacking

A travel blog entry by miss.chris

... sup> night, Chicken Curry, a bottle of Dom Perignon and a nice bottle of red wine. We had the bottle of red wine the 1st night, way down at Cottonwood into the canyon and the bottle of Dom Perignon way up the South rim at Indian Gardens. At the bottom of the Canyon, Phantom Ranch, we ate dinner at the Ranch and drank beer that we didn’t have to carry.

So now when I talk about food and wine we will carry you can see how its importance has ...

Preparing for Living Abroad

A travel blog entry by miss.chris

... estate so can help with housing. We would prefer a house but would take a flat if necessary. We must have 2 bedrooms so that friends and family can visit. Now we will buy a good map and review the cities suggested both on-line and in the travel books. We will select maybe 2 or 3 and put them out for a vote. Since we plan to leave next April we must start this process as we will leave in about 1 year from ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Four Points by Sheraton Bakersfield

    Large room. Well appointed.

    from

    Nice room. Upgraded bedding. Garden surroundings are pleasant. Caught the Bistro for Sunday brunch. Somewhat high priced but very good. As others have mentioned, there is no alternative dining in this office park.

    Two negatives:

    Bathroom was not clean.

    The building is only two stories but there is no

    elevator. A Sheraton with no elevator????

    I felt cheated

    from

    I paid full price ($119) for this below average "hotel". I have stayed in motels that were a lot nicer than this place. There were room service trays (with half eaten food on them) left in the hallway from our check in at 2:00pm until about 9:30am. Gross! The vending machines were 20 to 30 years old and they ate our money. The doors that connect the rooms make it all to easy to hear everything going on next door - word for word. And I was on the "preferred" floor. I would sleep in my car before I stayed there again.

    Tired Old Hotel

    from

    We stayed one night in July 2005. Got a $35 rate through Priceline. I wouldn't pay more.

    Will always stay at the Four Points!

    from

    We travel quite frequently to Bakersfield to visit family and a few years ago discovered by accident the Four Points hotel and was pleasently surprised at the comfort and convience it provides. Although we dine at near-by restaurants for dinner and lunch, the Bistro hotel offers a very delicious room service breakfast. We will always stay here!!!

    Pleasant Stay

    from

    Having not stayed anywhere else in Bakersfield I have nothing to compare it to in town but on the whole this was a pleasant place to stay. Grounds are quite nice and well maintained. Pool is one of the bigger ones I've seen at a hotel in a while (plus it has an 8ft. deep end!). There is a "creek" flowing along one wing (600 block maybe?) and also a pond outside our room block (500). Rooms, albeit slightly dated, were clean and comfortable. No elevators but then again the buildings are only two stories. First floor rooms with courtyard views all seemed to have balconies. I would advise courtyard rooms to get the view as opposed to having to look/hear the parking lot. The room we had also had one of the best A/C units I've experienced in a hotel and I stayed plenty of places last year (MArriotts, Hyatt, Hilton, etc.). Very quiet, even when the a/c kicked on. While I am male I never got an "insecure" feel while on the grounds. There was one wing that attached to the lobby so if people are concerned about outside stairs, etc. they could request to have a room in that wing. Free continental breakfast was standard, plain fare. And there are a few places within a blocks distance of the hotel, including a 50'd style diner that had good bfast. If I have occassion to be in Bakersfield again I will stay there.

    Reasonable, for a business complex hotel

    from

    The hotel is basically a converted business park, and it's surrounded by a bunch of other business parks. The only restaurant in walking distance is their own restaurant, which charges extravagant prices for very below average food. I'd recommend jumping in the car and going to eat elsewhere.

    The room itself was fine, just a little dark inside. Everything had a slightly aged feel to it -- small TV, rough towels. The service at the registration was excellent, though.

    For what I paid, I'm happy

    from

    I paid $35 for a room at this hotel using Priceline - with tax & fees the total came to just under $45. This was on June 17, 2004.

    Good things, bad things

    from

    The good: Large room, very quiet, large pool and jacuzzi (neither of which I got around to using). Polite and friendly front desk staff.

    Average...to adequate

    from

    this hotel is very old and appears as such. the rooms have been updated yet still have the old, stale feel.

    Paradise in Bakersfield

    from

    We have stayed at deluxe hotels up and down the California coast, and this room was one of the best. We had a courtyard room, where the children were able to play outside on the grass - a beautifully maintained pond ran by our room. The hotel is in a safe area of Bakersfield. Tuesday nights in the summer feature a complimentary bar-b-que including beer and wine by the pool. The pool is large - 8 feet deep - and clean. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in. The grounds were immaculately maintained - I highly recommend this fine hotel. We will stay there from now on when we travel through Bakersfield. (Oh, and it is affordable! Great value!)
