Hampton Inn Bakersfield - Central
1017 Oak Street, Bakersfield, CA US 93304

welcome to the Hampton Inn Bakersfield-Central.It's where the old west meets some of California's most beautiful agricultural scenery. Bakersfield came into being when, back in 1863, former California state senator Colonel Thomas Baker moved here and grew a field of alfalfa for travelers to feed their horses. Newspapers from all over the state encouraged travelers to visit Baker's field and to feed their stock. Today it's one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. and a cradle of California agriculture. It's also a perfect spot for travelers to stop and cool their heels a bit after driving along either the 5 or 99 freeways from the north and south.If you're looking for a hotel in Bakersfield, the Hampton Inn® Bakersfield-Central hotel is located in the center of town, close to restaurants, business centers and entertainment.

I check into this location a few times a year. The reception desk staff and breakfast hostess welcome me as a returning friend. The decor of the rooms, lobby, halls and elevator is very "cool"! Having fresh/cleaned bedding covers is WONDERFUL! I feel secure>no germs! The FULL breakfast has wonderful and freshly made selections! I highly recommend staying here AND THE RATE is so reasonable!

This hotel is the perfect overnight spot to stop to split up the trip from San Jose to Las Vegas. It has easy access from the highway. It was easy to get on and off without putting on excess miles. There are quite a few places to grab a bite to eat.

We checked at one other hotel. The rates where a lot lower but there was no way we would stay it was noisy and dirty.We did a quick Internet search and found this one for more money, but if that what it takes to feel comfortable, that's what we will do.

Quiet, restaurants near by, good assortment at the breakfast, pool in back, plenty of parking and just off the 99. Covers the bases. Usual Hampton Inn located in plain vanilla part of town. Not too bad, not too good but a click or two short of just right.

Great suite. Really nice quality. Good breakfast. Sink is outside of toilet/shower room, which I don't find to be ideal. Also, the light switch for toilet is outside of toilet room, so you have no choice but to flood the room with light when you tinkle during the night. But not a big deal. I would stay here again.

I recently had the opportunity to stay in the center city location of the Hampton Inn in Bakersfield CA. The hotel was relatively new and located right off the interstate. The staff was friendly, helpful and efficient. The breakfast nook was clean and comfortable. There were a variety of items and beverages to choose from and everything was fresh and continuously restocked. It was a thoroughly enjoyable visit and I will be using the Hampton Inn in the future.

While just an overnight stop on the way to wine country, this was a perfect choice for us. Great access from Rt 99, plenty of choices nearby to eat and the place seemed like it was brand new. Don't get me wrong it is a Hampton Inn so the general level of expectation is based on that, however the facility was very clean, rooms bright and spacious and the staff very efficient and helpful. The warm cookies in the lobby were an extra treat. We liked it enough that we booked a second night for return... Read more

We usually stay at two and a half star hotels when traveling. Three star hotels have amenities that we do not need, and two stars usually are just not as nice. But within the two and a half star category there is some range. Usually I have found that Hampton Inns are near the top of this range. I want to say the same about this hotel, but it just dod not meet the standards. It was clean. The employees were very polite and professional. The location was good. There was much to like, and i...

This hotel is a very clean hotel, but the staff is not friendly. I was not greeted as an HHonors member and was not offered the customary items as an HHonors member. The parking lot is shared with a Chinese restaurant and a Chevron station, so it was confusing where the hotel parking was located.

The Hampton in Bakersfield is a solid choice for the area. As a business traveler, it suits my needs and the breakfast is just fine. The workout room is sufficient. The front desk and other personnel all are always very pleasant! There are no views from the rooms and the parking lot could use a little work.

We arrived late at night, so parking was not an issue. It does share a parking lot with a restaurant and gas station. Check-in was fast and the clerk friendly. Room was large, clean and the beds comfortable (which is why I usually book a Hampton Inn). Bathroom was also clean. We partake in the free breakfast, which was pretty decent - oatmeal, muffins, eggs, bacon, waffles (make your own), juices and coffee.

A typical hamptom but the workout room is closed from midnight to 6 am. not a big deal unless you are fighting jet lag and want to burn some time and go back to sleep.

Bakersfield is not my primary choice for a vacation. However, father in law turning 80 got me and my spouse to this city over the weekend. The best, and I mean best, thing about my weekend was returning to my room and relaxing in the soft king bed, full cable, awesome shower and cool air conditioned room. In this room, I did not feel like I was in the middle of the oil well infested farming desert town with the empty water basins. ((Sigh)) I just wanna think about my room.

I always enjoy my stays at Hampton. Service is excellent, rooms are comfortable, and you do get value for your money. Unfortunately, this hotel is located at an intersection of several very busy roads in Bakersfield and the traffic noise level is awful. This is not the fault the folks who work here, and the rooms are still what you expect, but I was very disappointed in my choice of this particular Hampton.
