Clean, comfortable beds, convenient. For a trip stopover, this works well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"half way back"
Nice enough. Area not too pleasant but could walk to several fast food places after hours on the road.. Free breakfast adequate. Good rate. It's about half way on our return So.- No Calif. Issue with Wi-Fi, but didn't really need it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were coming here every few months, however this last visit, we requested a late check out, and they approved it, and I even witnessed the front desk write it down on notes for our room. We were able to stay until 1pm, my husband took his luggage, left the room and now I've noticed we were charged for another night. I called and spoke with Eva, a […] woman who must not have ever had a job in customer service. She claimed my husband was still in his room at 2:30pm, which is impossible as he picked us up about 35minutes away from the hotel. She wouldn't speak with my husband when I gave him the phone and just simply hung up. I called back to find out if we could speak with a manager and of course he wasn't there. She said he'd be in after 3pm,we called then and of course, he wasn't there, so now we will be calling today and depending upon his response, I'll update this rating. Customer service, a dying breed. I'll let you know the outcome. Being charged 2 days after having been given a late check out is unacceptable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super I-5 location between So. and No. CA"
Super hotel – no disappointments for this hotel meeting Best Western Plus standards including a wonderful breakfast in the morning. Very nice Denny's and several other fast-food places nearby. Great place to break up the trip when traveling the I-5 corridor between northern and southern California.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not much choice"
Would never reccommend or stay again--one towel each, rusted bathtub, broken desk chair, sink and toilet too low, TV wasn't working, loud work going on above us, horrible ceiling plaster job, painted over defects and broken baseboards, minimal breakfast choice ---whole place needs help ! Not up to Best Western reputation!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was beautiful, clean and very well maintained. Fantastic breakfast the next morning that came with the room. Also reasonably priced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable room on I-5"
We were en route and needed a place to sleep. Best Western is always a good choice; decent price, comfortable bed, OK free breakfast. Ask for a room on the second floor, since noise transmission is an issue.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
They have remodeled and updated rooms. Much better than before. Not much you can do about location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Over night stay."
Wow, what a pleasant suprise. I have stayed in hotels across the country and have paid a whole lot more for really nasty rooms. This hotel was very clean and quite. I have already booked a room for my return trip next week. Looking forward to staying there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was upgraded to suite. Very clean, comfortable and quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wonderful half way point of my travel the room was very nice and comfortable. Love the later check out and breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Conviently located right off freeway. Super clean rooms. Front desk wasn't that nice but the complimentary breakfast was one of the best I've ever had. Make your own waffles, cereal, yogurt, fruit, toast, bagels and more!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, friendly, nice breakfast bar, expensive"
I was with my daughter for a stopover on a long drive. She chose to swim in the pool in the am which was very clean. The clerk was very friendly. We will return if in need of a room in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"clean & convenient"
Not that Kettleman City is a vacation destination, but if you need a clean, inexpensive place to sleep with free breakfast, this is your place!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice overnight stay"
The hotel couldn't have been nicer. Very clean and most friendly staff. Kettleman city is basically a fast-food freeway stop.....but it served the purpose.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice stop-over"
We used this hotel/motel as a stop over point between SoCal and NorCal on a Thursday night. Check in was very quick and our room was clean and welcoming. The beds are newer and comfy, the rooms have been updated (incl large flat screen TV) the sheets and bedding were fresh! You don't see "motel room" and "fresh " in the same sentence too often! The […] FULL breakfast was really good: Waffles (not frozen), scrambled eggs and hashbrowns, the works! The water pressure in the shower was great too, considering in CA most places have those watering saving shower heads that give you a mist not a shower. Overall we will use BW as our go to on furture road trips. The rates are reasonable, the people are nice and the facility and grounds are clean and kept up. Not a perfect 5, but a close 4+.

It's located in the middle of nowhere, just off of I-5. The room we stayed in was unbelievably nice--almost resort nice. Very comfortable beds, completely modern accommodations, spacious, and immaculately clean. I was thoroughly impressed with this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our check in was late and we were welcomed with a smile. Our room was beautiful and clean. We woke up early to a great all you can eat breakfast and we were full and happy for the next leg of our trip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were unfamiliar with this sparsely populated stretch of I-5 and thought it was either Santa Nella or Kettleman City. My advice? Hit Harris Ranch instead. The Kettleman City Best Western was OK but it seemed like a remodel hadn't quite been finished. Specifically, the heat pump I swear was 30 years old. It was either on or off, wouldn't work via thermostat. […] Again, the place was OK but we wouldn't stay there again. P.S. Fast food only at this "oasis." They told us not to worry, though, because they were building a Denny's. 'Nuff said. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfort in Callistoga, CA"
Our room was large, clean, and comfortable. Loved having an in-room coffee maker and continental breakfast on-site. Nice to look out a window onto greenery and mountains in the distance--not other rooftops.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location is good along the HWY 5; but I think the price is little bit high.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close it I-5"
My room was clean and the pillows were exceptional (I slept very well)! I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially with the convenience of I-5 up the street!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lots of road construction off the freeway to get to the hotel and there weren't any signs directing you to the entrance of the hotel. We arrived late at night and was greeted by a nice lady at the desk. The room was fine, bed was comfy with all the nice pillows. It was a stop over on our way to San Diego.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient stop on the I-5"
Kettleman City is freeway stop with two options. The BW or Super 8. This one works for a clean and tidy place one the Freeway run. Not much in KC. Breakfast is included and standard chain hotel fare.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Keep driving - Harris Ranch Hotel nearby"
Over-priced, could have stayed at Harris Ranch for only $15 more. Hard to get to because of road construction. No better than nearby Super 8. Rooms were dirty and outdated. Breakfast was only mediocre. Max rating - 1-1/2 star. Not up to usual Best Western standardsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was clean and close to I-5 freeway.Just what I needed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Spa was broken.......breakfast selection was good; however, they only refilled the hot food to accommodate 4 people and then no more refills for 15-20 minutes. Hot and in the middle of nowhereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"adequate hotel halfway up the 5"
It's a adequate hotel that serves as a good middle point up the 5 between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Nothing fancy about hotel or room just your basic hotel, but it is located just off the 5 which is nice. Breakfast was below average. If you don't expect to much and are just looking for a good stop over point I think this may be the best choice […] in the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stopped in Kettleman City for the night on our trip to Northern California. Good clean hotel to stay in. Pool not too inviting... Minimal landscaping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will stay in this hotel again."
We were happy to be at this hotel after a long day of driving and not much choice of hotels in that area. I think that there are only two hotels in this small town. The staff was very very friendly. Provided us with extra freezer space. Free internet and breakfast with real eggs! Very clean. We would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy access to the Interstate"
Disappointing breakfast; hotel pool was small and had there been people using it our room would have been noisy!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Totally fit for purpose"
We needed a place to stay en route from San Francisco to Los Angeles. We'd been through Kettleman City before and it has all the facilities you need, i.e. a couple of motels, a gas station and a couple of restaurants. It's all in a fairly new location on the edge of Kettleman City and to a good standard. Rooms were excellent in all aspects - size, comfort […] and cleanliness; the WiFi worked well and was quite fast; the continental breakfast was pleasant and the welcome friendly. Definitely recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stop on way to Las Vegas"
Hotel exceeded our expectations. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and were upgraded to a beautiful jacuzzi bedroom. Pool area was very quiet and clean. Breakfast area spacious and good selection on offer. Hotel was very conveniently situated enroute between Santa Barbara and Las Vegas. It was next to […] an outlet mall which was great for last minute purchases. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"INsects in the Room"
07/26/14 Rogelio O loma linda, United States
There were insects (mosquitoes, flies, and crickets) inside the room. Front desk refused to move me to another room and didn't do anything to remove the insects.I asked the front desk staff to transfer me and she refused not telling me why (if they were full or not) and just said she will send a spray and a fly swat so I can do it myself. The internet in the room is so bad 9Connections and speed) and when I complained about it, the front desk said they could not do anything about it since they do not have an IT person. The room is dirty. The only thing the house keeping did is to fix the bed but did not clean the room.
"The "place" doesn't stop being a very good one !!"
07/23/14 Leon1958 Bakersfield, California
I have stayed at this place many times, and while being a "basic business traveler" - it still continues to be necessary to establish a "home away from home" (at times). When circumstances even included staying in an "ADA compliant room" (designed for the handicapped or disabled people), it still continues to maintain the "above the board" facts of still being a great overnight stay (for a couple of days in this case). Breakfast is always plentiful and nutritious to get anyone started on their day - headed in a very "positive direction".
"Right at home"
07/23/14 DrSACM Riverside County
I always stay at Best Western Kettleman for business. Always a positive experience. The internet can be a bit slow at times, but for the most part, it appears to be better than previous times. The staff, in particular, Becky, is always so helpful and kind.
"Excellent except for very slow and unreliable WiFi connection"
07/18/14 mcnicolb Corvallis, Oregon
We spent one night at the Best Western Inn in Kettleman City. It was a very pleasant stay. Our room was clean and cool in the heat of the day. Breakfast was better than expected. Eggs and roasted potatoes were offered along with the standard cereal, yogurt, waffle, and toast choices. There was plenty of seating. Front desk staff workers were polite and helpful, even copying the sudoku puzzle from the newspaper so I could share it with my spouse. My only complaint is that the WiFi connection was v-e-r-y slow and unstable. This is important to those of us that manage nearly all our travel plans via the web. The hotel's guest computer was no better or faster, and was unable to print because part of the power cable had been removed. Otherwise, this was a very good one.
"My Stay At Best Western Kettleman City"
07/05/14 Virgil J Fullerton, United States
Once I made the reservation they held the room for me without any trouble when I arrived late, after 11PM. The check in was swift and the party behind the desk knew who I was without any issues. They even kept a bottom floor room as requested. The room was easy to find and the parking was ample, close to the room. The furnishing of the room was exceptional, and the beds were clean and comfortable. The place was also quiet meaning we had a good nights sleep. The breakfast in the morning was adequate and fresh, plenty of to drink and eat. The only thing that was missing was sausage or bacon with the breakfast. Checkout was easy and they applied my stay to my rewards number via request.
"Nice place for stop-over"
07/04/14 Papalr1948 Snohomish, Washington
Spent two separate nights here within 3 days of each other. The first night wasn't as pleasant as the second. The a/c unit fan was very noisy and I found a cockroach in the bathtub in the morning. The second night was a different room and much better. A/C was quite and no additional guests. Both rooms were very clean and hotel is within walking distance of Denny's and numerous fast-food places. One nice feature at this BW is eggs and potatoes in addition to the normal BW waffles for breakfast. We would stay there again when looking for a stop-over between Northern Cal and Southern Cal.
"Best Western Kettleman City, California"
07/02/14 Elisa T Kettleman City, United States
Nice stay. Friendly staff and the suites are clean. The proximity to Interstate 5 is optimal. Parking is right next to your room. The continental breakfast is adequate and fully stocked. The suites have a small refrigerator and microwave which are in good working condition. Will stay there again.
"All in all a good stay."
07/01/14 Q9124LNpeterk San Diego, California
Great staff, clean room, comfortable enough beds and pillows. Morning breakfast great. Internet connection needed some attention it kept loosing connection and I had to reconnect several times, but it was up long enough to take care of what I needed too. The walk ways need power washing, they were rather dirty. All in all, a good stay, and I will stay here again.
"Not on my list of top places to stay"
06/27/14 Sandy G Petaluma, California
Being that this was a Best Western, I actually expected a better room for the price. There was a gap of at least an inch between the floor and bottom of the door - and there were plenty of crickets and who knows what else crawling around our room. The window was at the end of an alley, and it didn't lock - easy entrance for anyone. I could see where someone had tried to pry the screen off the window. The whole place looked old and in desperate need of a paint job and general clean-up. We didn't stay for breakfast, just grabbed a cup of coffee, which by the way, wasn't good, and left. (And stopped at the Starbuck's across the street on our way out of town). The only staff we saw was the clerk who checked us in. Other than that, there was no one around.
"The Place to Stay for Halfway"
06/26/14 mikeclarken San Diego, California
We have tried quite a few options and calculated stops for halfway from San Diego to San Francisco and this is the place fir sure. Much better even than Harris Ranch which is considerably more expensive and not halfway! It's just a surprise to get very nice accommodation's in Kettleman City on par with any Best Western you would get in a big city or popular stopping point. Clean rooms, great staff, good property, and very nice breakfast! This is it!
