Tired Old Hotel A review of Four Points by Sheraton Bakersfield
We stayed one night in July 2005. Got a $35 rate through Priceline. I wouldn't pay more.
The property is in a business park area a few miles west of Highway 99. There is an onsite restaurant, but nothing else is around within walking distance.
On the good side--the pool, pool area and grounds are very nice and well kept. The workout room has decent equipment and was clean as a whistle.
On the bad side--this is an older property with absolutely no charm. It was like staying in an older Best Western. The furniture was not very attractive, unless you like that 80's whitewashed oak look.
The restaurant, The Bistro, was absurdly overpriced. The front desk was unable to direct us to any other restaurants, but just kept babbling about how good the Bistro was. So we had to strike out on our own--there's quite a few restaurants within striking distance if you're willing to drive a mile or three.
I've stayed at both the Sheraton and Doubletree in Bakersfield, and I'd recommend the Doubletree.
