This is a great Hampton Inn that offered no surprises, other than a much larger than normal bathroom. The check-in was fast and friendly - the breakfast was fine - rooms are spacious and quiet - and the wif-fi worked well. The shared parking was a bit confusing since it's actually in front of the restaurant (more signage would be... More

The Hampton Inn is easy to access from the freeway and is in a good location with several restaurant choices in the area. The Hotel is clean and quiet, with newly remodeled rooms. The Hotel staff is friendly and helpful, but not overly friendly and fake acting. Breakfast is terrific, with lots of choices. I especially enjoy the oatmeal and... More

My wife and I generally love to stay at Hampton Inns. However, this particular one was ver sub-par. What made it so were the following: * The bathroom was TERRIBLE! While it was larger than most, it totally lacked ANY counter on which to place cosmetics or toiletries. None! It was incredibly awkward and very unacceptable. * Throughout the night,... More

Stayed for one night on Business after a 4.5 hr drive. Arrived and noticed it shared parking with Chinese Buffet Restaurant. Not bad, I thought but noticed nobody in there at peak Dinner hour. Also, hotel is in a not very nice part of Bakersfield, if there exists such enclaves. Checked in and Desk Clerk asked me how I was.... More

My husband and I stayed at this Hampton Inn in downtown Bakersfield only because the one to the north was already totally booked when I went to reserve. I always request a quiet room. This time I got what is probably the noisiest room in the hotel--4th floor practically overhanging US-99. If that wasn't bad enough, there were three dumpsters... More

The fastest and most friendly hotel front desk staff this frequent business traveler has ever experienced. My room was clean and very comfortable. Unlike many hotels, the Hampton had enough outlets for my phone, hot spot, personal computer, business computer, and iPad! The linens were luxurious.

I am very happy to hear that you had such a great stay with us. Also that your accommodations were pleasing as well. I can completely relate with you on hotels never having enough outlets for all the electronics we carry nowadays. That was one area that we made sure and covered during our renovation of our rooms.

The Hampton Inn in Bakersfield is right on route 50 on the route between central California and Las Vegas. The hotel is clean and comfortable, and the staff is very helpful, including a wealth of knowledge about local restaurants and attractions. The price was reasonable, check-in and check-out very efficient. A great deal.

This hotel was full the weekend we stayed. It was quiet, extremely clean, the staff was wonderful (packages of cookies!), and a decent continental breakfast (however, keep away from the danishes...a bit stale). The beds were comfortable, and the room looked brand new.

This facility is clean and bright. The employees are very friendly, pleasant and helpful. The beds are very comfortable and the bath was clean and we had an abundance of clean towels. There is always fresh coffee and tea available if you wants it. I will not hesitate to stay here again on our next trip this way.
