Great place. Room are really nice and with chic modern style. Highly recommended despite of its downtown location. Staff is very friendly - from the valet parking to front desk attendants. Would definitely stay here again!

We've stayed in the Padre several times and have enjoyed each stay. Staff are friendly and helpful. You will need to plan on parking your car in a garage near by or having valet parking. This hotel is in the center of town and close to everything you would want to do. My husband and I are in our 60's... More

We drove up on a hot Saturday afternoon earlier this August. We were heading to Las Vegas from the Bay Area and I didn't want to to do the 9-10 hour drive in one shot. From the outside, the Padre Hotel looks a bit dated. The architecture is, I'll say, "50's". Before we checked in, my wife wanted to just... More

After driving almost 4.5 hours from San Francisco, I arrived at this hotel around midnight totally exhausted and ready for sleep. Well- this hotel delivers. It is on the same level as the Hyatt, except better. This is an old, historic hotel that underwent a remodel 5 years ago. The design is upscale and edgy. The rooms are large and... More

What a beautiful and modern hotel! My co-worker found this little gem for us to try while on business in the area. It is very well done, has lots of fun art and "kitschy" things to look at. The bar is great for eating or just catching a quick cocktail. The rooms are very big for being an older hotel.... More

Our hotel room was absolutely stunning! Very modern yet classy. No detail was forgotten, the shower was huge and had amazing printed shimmery tilework like I have never seen and had gorgeous barn doors on a track to seperate from the bedroom! A must stay if nearby.

This is my go to spot when I'm traveling for work in Bakersfield. When it comes to Bakersfield there very few options for decent hotels so I was pleasantly surprised the first time I pulled up to The Padre Hotel. It's a very cute little boutique hotel. The lobby has a nice bar/ restaurant that is pretty packed in the... More

The Padre is a happening place. We arrived on a Friday night and the place was buzzing with people and music they have 3 bars. We had just ended a 16-18 hour car ride. The valet was quick to help us unload and direct us to the front desk. The Padre was very welcoming and the staff were very pleasant... More

I've stayed in a lot of hotels around the world and The Padre is in my top 3 favourite hotels. The rooms are tastefully furnished, the bathrooms are high quality and the service is excellent.
