“Affordability, Location, & Recently Remodeled + Great Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our one-night stay at this hotel. We found the rate to be both reasonable and comparable to similar hotels in the area. Although the hotel was undergoing renovations, we were not impacted. Our room had already been remodeled - the furniture and decor was stylish and simple. The BED was amazing! I always request a clean bedspread and extra pillows, which is exactly what I received - lots of clean, fluffy pillows and a plump duvet with a fresh white cover. So comfy!

The breakfast was exactly what we expected and was the main reason we chose this hotel over other area hotels. It was well stocked, and when I accidentally spilled milk, the staff was right there to clean it. Fresh waffles, real egg omelettes, a selection of hot and cold cereals and muffins, plus fruit and beverages.

The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. We had no trouble accessing wifi during our stay. The hotel is centrally located and easy to find. Our children enjoyed the swimming pool.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west are closer to the freeway and pool.

Thank you so much for for all your positive feedback of our hotel. Renovations can be a little chaotic and messy, but I am happy to hear that this did not effect your stay with us. I hope that if you are ever in the area and need a place to stay you will remember us. Thank you again.

My daughter stayed here recently while driving from Arizona to Oregon. She had a very comfortable and restful night. The staff allowed her to park where they could keep an eye on her truck which was full of all her belongings. Thank you Hampton for providing a safe place for her to stop!!

Hampton Inns never let me down and this is now another one that I've enjoyed staying at. The bed was very comfortable including the pillows. Above all the service was great! It was a young woman in the evening that checked us in. She is an asset to the hotel. There is a Chinese restaurant and Taco Bell nearby for convenience. Thanks for a great stay!

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.

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.
