The Padre Hotel came highly recommended to me. I was not disappointed. Friendly and helpful staff, clean and inviting rooms, and nice touches make the Padre a great boutique hotel. My bed was comfortable and warm, much nicer than most hotel beds. This was my first time staying at this hotel, but I will not be the last. The chain... More

What is not to love about the Padre Hotel. So excellently remodeled. Maybe the best hotel bed I have ever slept in. Numerous restaurants to meet all needs. Great rooftop eating and drinking and vibe. Awesome bathroom with quality toiletries. Excellent WIFI. A mere $10 a night valet parking. No negatives at all, except that I wish my business would... More

We arrived March 26 for a one night stay on our way to Palm Desert. It was a Thursday afternoon so we had prompt valet service and our luggage was efficiently loaded onto a cart. Check-in was fast and professional. We had three rooms - a Double Deuce, a Forty Winks, and an accessible Maverick. Allison expertly managed getting all... More

The hotel is absolutely beautiful. I believe it was renovated a few years ago and the meticulous dedication to the theme (sort of modern speakeasy) shows. The bed was so comfortable. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. The food was great. The WiFi was free. I have no complaints!

This older building was renovated and done well. The rooms are swanky, unconventional and fun. The bed was comfortable. The room was sparse, clean, simple, but well decorated - that's the way I like it. We had a quiet, restful night. There's a restaurant and two different bars in the lobby area, and also an outdoor bar area on the... More

I don't get all the hype... I traveled to Bakersfield on business and spent two nights at this hotel. And although it's clearly a historic piece of the Bakersfield culture that was brought back to life in a nicely upscale manner, there seems to be a disconnect between the hotel and it's guests who stay in the regular rooms and...

We stayed at the Padre Friday- Saturday, March 27 & 28. We were there for a wedding which was not in the hotel altho the rehersal dinner was held there on Friday. The valet parking was fast when we arrived and we had a bellman (actually a bellwoman) take out things up. Check in was fast and easy. Room was... More

This was our second stay at the Padre, and we enjoyed it very much. Our room was very nice, well, maintained, comfortable, had good heat/ac, and quiet. We don't have a lot of experience with various rooms, but some are a bit pricey. The only downside was that we were looking forward to dinner at the hotel restaurant, the Belvedere.... More
