“Typically Fine Hampton Experience”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

This is a great Hampton Inn that offered no surprises, other than a much larger than normal bathroom. The check-in was fast and friendly - the breakfast was fine - rooms are spacious and quiet - and the wif-fi worked well. The shared parking was a bit confusing since it's actually in front of the restaurant (more signage would be helpful). We were in and out and didn't explore the neighborhood, so it's possible it's not the best part of Bakersfield - but it's certainly not the worst.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west end of the property would likely be quieter than the other end.

The Hampton Inn is easy to access from the freeway and is in a good location with several restaurant choices in the area. The Hotel is clean and quiet, with newly remodeled rooms. The Hotel staff is friendly and helpful, but not overly friendly and fake acting. Breakfast is terrific, with lots of choices. I especially enjoy the oatmeal and fresh fruit. They seem to have the best tasting orange juice in California!

My wife and I generally love to stay at Hampton Inns. However, this particular one was ver sub-par. What made it so were the following:

* The bathroom was TERRIBLE! While it was larger than most, it totally lacked ANY counter on which to place cosmetics or toiletries. None! It was incredibly awkward and very unacceptable.

* Throughout the night, there was an intermittent rattling noise emanating from the small in-room refrigerator...sounding like tapping on a window. Other members of our party who stayed in another room on another floor also mentioned that they had the same disturbing noise as well.

The complimentary breakfast was very good, however.

Would I stay at this Hampton Inn again or recommend it to others? Absolutely not.

Stayed for one night on Business after a 4.5 hr drive. Arrived and noticed it shared parking with Chinese Buffet Restaurant. Not bad, I thought but noticed nobody in there at peak Dinner hour. Also, hotel is in a not very nice part of Bakersfield, if there exists such enclaves. Checked in and Desk Clerk asked me how I was. I said I was "punchy". She immediately backed away and seemed scared. Made awkward comment like, "I'm sorry", please don't do that". I asked what she meant and she said it must have been a bad day to want to punch her. I was shocked and said, "No, I am punchy - I just drove almost 5 hours". She laughed it off but I could tell she was still nervous. Really? I am hardly an intimidating person. Anyhow, I stayed there because it was close to my business meeting the next day. Had an average nights sleep as the room was right on the street, even with a high floor I could hear all the traffic. Hotel is still under renovation as there were construction workers coming in and out. Breakfast was free, but I would not have paid for it. Eggs were dry and rubbery. Bacon was the thin, precooked stuff you get at Walmart. Moral of the story: You get what you pay for and a little less.

My husband and I stayed at this Hampton Inn in downtown Bakersfield only because the one to the north was already totally booked when I went to reserve. I always request a quiet room. This time I got what is probably the noisiest room in the hotel--4th floor practically overhanging US-99. If that wasn't bad enough, there were three dumpsters right below us and yes, they were emptied at 6:15 AM the morning we were there. The desk person in the morning didn't want to hear my complaints.

Virginia,

Thank you for your review of our hotel. I'd like to apologize for the noise issues that you encountered during your stay with us. When you come to a hotel you're expecting to get a great night's sleep and unfortunately we were not able to provide you with that. Again, I thank you for your review and we'll be sure to keep your comments in mind as we make future improvements to our hotel. I'd love to have you back to give our hotel a second chance.

Best Regards,
Jennifer Marchand

The fastest and most friendly hotel front desk staff this frequent business traveler has ever experienced. My room was clean and very comfortable. Unlike many hotels, the Hampton had enough outlets for my phone, hot spot, personal computer, business computer, and iPad! The linens were luxurious.

I am very happy to hear that you had such a great stay with us. Also that your accommodations were pleasing as well. I can completely relate with you on hotels never having enough outlets for all the electronics we carry nowadays. That was one area that we made sure and covered during our renovation of our rooms. I am glad to hear that it has not gone unnoticed. Thank you for such a great review and I hope you come back and stay with us again soon.

The Hampton Inn in Bakersfield is right on route 50 on the route between central California and Las Vegas. The hotel is clean and comfortable, and the staff is very helpful, including a wealth of knowledge about local restaurants and attractions. The price was reasonable, check-in and check-out very efficient. A great deal.
