What can I say about this place? We were headed for Seattle, coming home from Palm Springs. The massive California storm was coming and we were looking for a place to hide for a day or two. We were driving our ancient convertible so no way we were going to deal with that storm on the road. We were dogsitting... More

This was my second stay at the Padre. Both times were comfortable and pleasant. Rooms were spacious and quiet. Very cool and trendy décor thru out hotel. They had a tree lighting party with cookies which was nice. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Lobby restaurant is nice with good food. I recommend this for sure over the other large... More

We stayed at the Padre in early October (sorry for the delay in completing the review). Bakersfield was a stopping point having completed Route 66 and on our way to San Fransisco. This is a great hotel, very helpful staff, great room, excellent drinks and coffee bar and a very good restaurant to boot. It is true to say that... More

This was our second time staying at the Padre, we love the place. I'm baffled as to why it's not the number 1 hotel in Bakersfield. Maybe it's too hip and swanky for some people. We travel to Bakersfield to visit friends and family, and look forward to staying at the Padre (at eating there, and drinking there). My only... More

We found this place quite by accident and Holy Cow are we happy, staff excellent, room great, LOVE THE SHOWER, bar/food, wonderful, we plan on going back to just be able to stay there again. Met locals who spend weekends there, they live TEN MINUTES AWAY!! THAT really says a lot about a place.

We very much enjoyed the hotel's central location and luxurious rooms. Front desk service was great. My only complaint is that the bathroom in our suite was not adequately separated from the rest of the room; my husband and I just aren't hip enough for that kind of thing. :)

we stayed at the Padre on our trip to San Diego after reading other reviews. They are all correct, especially THE BEDS! After of hours in the car, we could not wait to try them for ourselves. We travel all over and we have never felt such a wonderful bed. The room was huge, the tub was soaking depth and... More

I am a local and am thrilled the Padre is no longer empty space from an eccentric rebel. However; they have some 'interesting' baristos and bartenders who don't seem to appreciate people...for such a beautiful place, the service on the front lines should be a LOT more friendly...not just old faithfuls who never call in...
