Open late 2015, the Best Western is the first chain hotel in the small town of Taft, along Hwy 33 near the south end of the Central Valley, at the center of a major oil-producing area. The modern, stylishly-decorated, three floor property features free full hot breakfast, free wi-fi, a convenience store, business & fitness centers and guest laundry facility. All accommodations contain a microwave and refrigerator. The hotel has quite a central location in town, built on the site of a former rail yard, the main line now replaced by a hike/bike trail. There are several restaurants close by to the north, on Hwy 33.
