Okay, next time it would be a good idea to look at a map. After driving forever south on I-5 on a trek to Southern California, we chose this hotel in Bakersfield for an overnight stay. This Hampton is at least 20 miles from I-5 so in that sense it was not that convenient. However, the hotel itself is excellent. The room was clean, modern, and quiet with two comfortable queen size beds. The area for breakfast in the morning was among the nicest I have seen in a Hampton - clean, spacious, well maintained with an attentive staff member. My only reservation about the hotel is that it is in what appears to be an industrial area with no nearby restaurants. Other than that, this is a good place. An added bonus was that relatively few HiltonHonors points were required for an overnight stay.
