“Home Sweat Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

I do a lot of traveling and if there is a Hampton I always stay there. I know what I'm getting. A clean room, friendly service, a good breakfast and a safe place to park my car. There is always security in the parking lot and there always someone behind the counter no matter what time I show up. Sometimes I arrive after midnight and there is always a friendly face waiting for me. There other great thing is I never have to guess what the room is going to smell like. The rooms are always real clean and you really feel like you got your moneys worth.

Typical Hampton Inn-it was clean, quiet and the staff was friendly. Close to CA 99 and restaurants. Breakfast area is small. The price was outstanding--much less than the other Hampton Inns in the area. Would stay here again if we were passing through the area.

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 the price you are definitely getting an awesome deal.

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 close to the freeway. Doesn't bother my family, but you can hear traffic at night when everything is quiet.
