“nice motel but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Nice rooms. The pool is quite small but clean. A very good choice of breakfast items and spacious breakfast area.
We did think this motel was quite expensive although we looked at a couple of others and they were very run down .

I am glad to read that you found our accommodations very nice and that you were satisfied with your stay. The rate during this time of year is pretty standard at this hotel. Weekends are usually cheaper than the weekdays because there is a lot of corporate business. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We really appreciate the review.

Sincerely,
Jennifer Marchand
Director of Guest Services

This hotel is centrally located in the heart of Bakersfield making it easy to access most of what you may be needing. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the hotel itself was extremely clean. The breakfast could use a little help (needs to be warmer) but good none the less to have something more than a muffin. It was also nice to see the security and know that the entire hotel: inside and out (I even saw them on our floor) was being cared for.

The Hospitality and Service is exceptional. It's rare that 'individuals' go out of their way to assist with the littlest of requests and I sincerely appreciate their service. I enjoy the Hampton Inns here in California and out-of-state. I was recently asked to go to Miami and what was my hotel of choice...the Hampton Inn!

When we travel it's usually one night stops until we get to our destination. So what we are looking for is clean and comfortable. It seemed clean but I think they need to have there carpets stretched. At the front door in the room there were humps of carpet that you can trip on. And whats up with the recliner in the room and not a small couch. I like the small couch so i can spread out and look into the next days planning the recliner won't let me do this. Also not much available for breakfast for those of us who are gluten intolerant.

Thank you for taking the time to voice your comments and concerns regarding our Hampton Inn. As you might have seen when you stayed with us recently, we are undergoing a complete renovation. All of our guest rooms will be made over from floor to ceiling, along with new furniture in between. As for our breakfast menu, I will definitely look into more gluten intolerant options to add to our menu. Comments like yours help us to better serve others with the same issues and we really value your opinions. We hope you come back soon and see all of our new upgrades that will be taking place within the next couple of months. We love having you here.

Thank you again.

Our family was very pleased. The breakfast was great, lots to choose from. The pool was small but was never overcrowded when we were there so it was just fine for us. Having a fridge in the room was nice.

A very clean and safe hotel. A great place to stay on the way to Vegas. It is located near a pretty busy intersection near restaurants and two gas stations. Hampton always impresses me with the modern decor and very comfortable beds. Free Internet is great and one would think that every hotel would offer free Internet but that is not the case.
