My mother and grandmother paid for the hotel as a wedding gift. A few days ago I got a call from my mother saying they'd charged 95$ to her credit card and that she had... More

I have visited this hotel a few times and every time has been for business. The vibe is really cool here. I have eaten at the breakfast spot, had dinner in the main restaurant and a drink on the roof. All of these were super enjoyable experiences. The second you walk through the doors to this hotel, you almost feel... More

This hotel is worth the drive off the Interstate. This hotel is a surprising find. The old building has a new life and best wishes to the Padre Hotel. Kudo to William B for the extra help fetching our stuff.

This hotel is a breath of fresh air. My business travels are monotonous, but i always look forward to staying in Bakersfield. The Padre is the right amount of hip and professional. The rooms are awesome for the price, but it's also nice to leave the room and take advantage of the amenaties, food, and night life. The staff remembers... More

Bakersfield, you have arrived! I’ve been begging Kimpton Hotels to open a hotel in the Central Valley. Padre you beat them to it! I arrived and was greeted at the front desk with, “we’ve upgraded you”. Yup, they upgraded me alright, to Room #704! To anyone who has researched the Padre Hotel, the 7th Floor not to mention Room #704,... More

Let me say this first: the hotel is beautifully restored and the staff is kind and attentive. I should have been suspicious, however, when I checked in and was told, "We have you in a quiet room on the seventh floor and the club is closed tonight." I don't know what it is like when the club is open, but... More
