We stayed here for one night on our way from SF to LA, we didn't want to make that trip in a 1-day drive, as we would have gotten to LA late. This was a good choice. We had a good night's sleep, and arrived in to LA before noon to visit museums. The Padre is far from the highway,... More

I visit Bakersfield on occassion for work. I am a medical technician that runs equipment in the operating room at multiple hospitals in the vicinity. Ive always had exceptional service with all the staff at The Padre Hotel; whether it be the bartenders or servers, front desk staff, security and housekeepers! They all really take care of you and are... More

I travel extensively on business throughout the western USA. My expectations for finding a decent hotel in Bakersfield were low. My hotel stays during multiple previous trips to Bakersfield were at chain 'suite' hotels and not pleasant. The Padre Hotel is a surprising exception to the region with unique rooms, decor and dining/drinking options. Most surprising of all was the... More

My husband an I stayed 1 night at the Padre Hotel, but wish it was for longer. The room was big and very well decorated it was also quiet. We ate in the bar downstairs, it wasn't amazing but . good value for money. A great place to stay.

I really enjoyed the bed and shower in this room. It exceeded my expectations. I was very satisfied with the staff and accommodations. The neighborhood was a bit iffy and there was no breakfast offered but there was WiFi.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Padre Hotel for two nights for business at one of the local hospitals. The Padre is a beautiful, old hotel that oozes style and comfort from the moment you walk in. There are several dining (and drinking) options onsite, including a sports bar/lounge-type spot outdoors on the upstairs patio (they also do... More

rooms very clean and comfortable, beds couldn't be better. A little noisy on Friday Night, food very good, reasonable price. Interesting old hotel completely remodeled. This hotel was once thought to be haunted. Has a couple of popular bar-nightclubs downstairs, crowded on weekends,

This did not feel like Bakersfield. The Padre hotel would be at home in it's design, service, and quality alongside the boutique hotels on Chicago or Seattle. The staff here is what really made the experience for us. Everyone we encountered was the perfect balance of professional and friendly. Marco, the valet, directed us to a local spot for drinks,...

We got an outstanding rate for just one night, as we were on the road to Las Vegas. the Padre is an outstanding hotel, totally top notch, from check in to check out. The 40 winks room was perfectly fine, (a little small), however very cozy and a very comfortable bed with high end sheets, comforter and down pillows. It... More
