“Great hotel for an overnight stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

It's our first stay at the Hampton Inn and we're not disappointed. The receptionist was very friendly although we didn't have any advanced reservation and it was already 10:30 at night. Beds are comfortable. Free parking, internet and breakfast. The room is clean and have an extra place to place our luggage. The only complaint I have is the wall A/C, it is quite noisy. I tried to use low setting but it didn't do anything. Most of wall A/Cs are noisy unfortunately and the setting is just there but didn't make any difference. The room is spacious and they have a charge station for computers and electronics which is really nice. Overall it's a very nice hotel and if we happen to be in the area, we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

The hotel personnel are very friendly and courteous which pushed this review from "good" to "very good". It's just your basic Hampton Inn, but they provide some extras that are very nice : Cookies at check-in, peanut butter or chocolate chip and you can get coffee and some other beverages at any time in the breakfast area. Starting at 6am, you can get a pretty decent breakfast with the usual, cereal, oatmeal, fruit, waffles and small egg omelets. We were there for a Sunday morning and I thought it may be busy but it never got over crowded and the staff kept the breakfast items full and the area clean. The beds were comfortable but I would ask for a room on the highest floor, since the guests above us had very heavy feet. Overall, a clean and comfortable hotel stay, I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Highest floor possible.

We just needed a place to stay for one night on our way to Vegas. Hampton Inn Bakersfield - Central was right along our route. We found this to be a clean quite place with very comfortable beds. Nice breakfast to get you going for the day, is available from 6AM to 10AM. We would definitely stay here again.

Needed a place just for one night, both coming and going on a longer trip. Hampton Inns are a good choice for one night. Basic and good breakfast bar. I have stayed at 10 or 12 Hampton's over the last three years and haven't hit a bad one yet. Good rates too.

Room Tip: Stay on the side away from the freeway.

I was traveling through California and had to stop for a night. This hotel offered good value, nothing special otherwise. I found the front desk to examine my passport for a little longer than I would have liked but nothing overly annoying. There was this weird TV show running during breakfast and again the lady at the front desk did not know what it was and who sets the TV either.

After arriving in LAX airport at 2pm on a flight from the uk we wanted to put a bit of distance between us and Los Angeles. Came across this hotel on the way up highway 99. While the area is not that great the hotel is very clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff were also very friendly and welcoming. It is easily accessible from highway 99. There are a couple of reasonable restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel.
