Bakersfield, CA, is a city at the southern end of the Central Valley and is the county seat and largest city in Kern County. It has a population of just over 400,000 and is the 9th most populous city in California and the 48th in the US overall.
If you are being sent on assignment to Bakersfield, you can always stay at a hotel, and there are plenty of them. If you are only here for a few days, then you will likely be OK in a hotel, but if you are here for a longer trip you will be far better off in one of our Bakersfield short term rentals here at Key Housing.
The problem with hotels is that, if you are staying for any length of time, they are very expensive. You are also living in a small, cramped room out of a suitcase. On top of that, things can get very tedious. We have said this before, but it is still true, and that is that you can tell what day of the week it is just by looking at the dinner menu! Not only that, but just about everything that you want is an extra. Some hotels even charge for Wi-Fi and parking.
Short Term Rentals Is The Answer
Using one of our Bakersfield short term rentals is the answer. We have everything from one-bedroom apartments to five-bedroom family homes on our books, and they are in the best residential districts in most cases. They come with everything that you need and are really just like a home from home. Some of the family homes have a yard with a pool, off-street parking, hot tubs, and more.
Many of our Bakersfield short term rentals come with full maid service, so you don’t need to do anything yourself. You can come and go as you please, invite people round for dinner, eat and drink what you want when you want, and all for a lot less than the cost of living in a hotel for a couple of months. Just compare the price of a bottle of Merlot or Chardonnay at a local liquor store and a hotel.
There are plenty of things to do in Bakersfield on your days off, especially if you like parks and the Kern River. But there is a Museum of Art, and also Buck Owens Crystal Palace which is dedicated to the Bakersfield Sound and is one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions. If you like to see a play, there is the Fox Theater which has been going since Christmas Day 1930. You are also right on the edge of the Sequoia National Forest and Sierra Nevada Mountains, so there is lots to keep you busy.
