For the price I paid for one night bussiness trip, I didnt have high hopes, but the price $99 (including taxes) I was impressed with my room, super friendly staff, spacious room and bathroom. Way beyond my expectations. Its not a 4 or 5 star hotel so if you are expecting something like that then you would be disappointed. For... More

A good business motel, also suitable for families, in a rather drab part of Bakersfield, just off the highway. The rooms are very nice, as is the breakfast and the WiFi. My wife and I have stayed here several times when passing through the city.

We had a good experience at this Hampton Inn so retuned on our business trip. We had no hot water until a call to the front desk, the bedding was in need of replacement, clean, but tired and the general appearnace of the hotel had gone down hill. We would not return again.

The room was clean and attractive. The internet was very easy to use. We thought the price was very good. I would certainly recommend this hotel for couples or families. We were very happy with the ease of booking our room.

We stayed for three nights while visiting family in Bakersfield, but if you are traveling through and need a place to stay the Hampton is perfect. The Hampton was ideal for our stay having a central location, nice rooms, excellent service and a very good breakfast. The pool was too cold to use, but it was December. The location is... More

This was my first time staying at a Hampton Inn. I was very happy with the overall stay. Was greeted warmly by the desk person and my room was clean and well furnished. The hotel had overnight security for the parking lot. The hotel is located next to the highway but there was little road noise in the room. The... More

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
