“Easy Highway Access”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Hampton Inn Bakersfield central for one night and found it to be everything we expected. It is convenient to the highway for easy arrival and departure as well as close to downtown if you have a car. Everything from the fresh blooming flowers at the doorway, a friendly greeting and efficient check in, to a clean and comfortable room were as we expected and we were totally satisfied.

Room Tip: We were able to book on the Internet several days in advance and when we checked in it turned out th...

While working in the Bakersfield area I stayed at this Hampton Inn every week from August 2011 to December 2011. The staff is very friendly and they went over the top to make sure my stays were comfortable. The hotel is kept unbelievably clean!!! The hot breakfast is more than adequate with a huge selection of items. The beds and pillows are very comfortable, I never had a bad nights sleep. Free internet is fast and reliable. The only bad is that the fitness room has a lot to be desired. I will happily stay here again when I am in the area! This is a great hotel!!!!!

This is your typical "road trip" stop type of hotel. If that's what you want. You're good. Typical Hampton. Everything seemed cleaned. Decent night sleep. Nothing really bad. Staff was friendly enough. Breakfast was stocked. Room was clean.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor I suppose. It's not a high traffic area at night.

First the Good
The Hotel is clean and recently renovated
The location is central to town and easy access to freeway
The staff was good
The price was good

The Less Good
The hotel is old, low popcorn ceilings, room air conditioning is window type units without thermostat, the bathrooms are older style unlike other Hamptons.
The breakfast is provided as in all Hamptons - this Hampton has a small breakfast area that was completely overrun with small kids. When ever the staff put out 3 muffins (pitifull and inadequate) the kids were like hungry wolfs and in an instant nothing was left. I waited around for several rounds and gave up on breakfast.

Summary - This hotel is Average or worse for a Hampton

Great comfortable bed, large tv with great channels and reception. Quiet. Clean. Breakfast selections much better than average. Coffee/tea available in the lobby, I believe at all hours. Pleasant service. No problems to report!! Highly recommended. I stayed 2 nights and it was just great.

Room Tip: Quietest rooms are on the south side, adjacent to the back of Travelodge, so there are no cars ther...

I stay at Hampton Inns a lot and this one is typical. Interior and furnishings looked very new and I was pleased with most aspects of my stay. Two things stood out that didn't allow me to give 5 circles instead of 4. The front desk check-in lady was not very informative or cordial. She didn't even tell us where the elevator was or where our rooms were located. Seems she was too busy talking on the phone while we had to wait. Even though I made the reservation online, she seemed confused that it was made with an AARP discount, and wasn't sure how to handle that without several other questions unnecessarily being asked. Also the breakfast was very nice, typical Hampton Inn fare, but the layout was very poor. The breakfast area was on the side of the lobby instead of an individual room like most Hamptons. There weren't enough tables because of the small area and several of the tables are right next to the lobby doors. Good breakfast, well stocked, but very poor location. Other than those 2 minor things, I'd stay here again and hopefully wouldn't get "Miss Lack of Personality" when I check in.
