“Good for an overnight stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Usually like me people use this hotel as a stopover point en-route to/ from South California to/ from North. It is conveniently located from the freeway and yet away from any noisy place. The rooms are nice and good value for money. Tea/coffee maker, popcorn, microwave, bathroom supplies and bedding are all available. There is also a roll-away bed available for any extra persons. The rooms and the reception lobby are clean. The staff is friendly and even though we arrived past midnight we called in and there was someone available at the check-in time. Breakfast was very good with everything in sufficient quantity and fresh hot danish, bagels, lots of fruit etc. Overall a very good place for an overnight stay to help you relax for a pleasant journey the next day...

We stayed overnight after a Miranda Lambert concert at the Rabobank. The hotel is within a couple miles of the civic center and was easy to find (just off the FWY). It was quiet, comfortable, and had a really nice breakfast selection. Will stay again for any other upcoming concerts.

From my arrival to my departure the staff, from the receptionist to the cleaning staff, made me feel welcome, at home. The hotel is super nice, clean, comfortable & well situated. I've had great experiences with Hampton Inns in the past but this was the best. the welcome letter was a great & very appreciated surprise. What a great stay!!! Thanks, A very satisfied customer.

If you do? STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE!!! Horrible service, dirty, room smelled and the location is horrible. The staff is the same way as the hotel. Sandie Cartwright the so called general manager has no people skills, no wonder the lack of customer service with her employees. I travel a lot and my stay at this hotel has been the worst experience I've had ever had.

We were in Bakersfield because of a Hot Rod Show at the Kern County Fairgrounds. Turned out that several cars in the parking lot were there for the same reason and we had a mini car show in the parking lot. Perfect!

We stayed one night. We asked for a handi-cap room. It was very nice and clean on the 3rd floor. The was staff was very friendly and the breakfast buffet was very good. Excellent location one block off the freeway. Many restaurants to choose from. I would stay here again. Carlos

The hotel and staff were outstanding. The complimentary breakfast was just what I needed to get the day going. The room was quiet and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again when passing through Bakersfield.
