I travel a lot for work and I enjoyed staying here. Modern and comfortable rooms with well appointed bed linens. Quiet too! Good choice of restaurants in the hotel and nearby. Picked up breakfast daily at the Farmacy. Courteous staff. Bar is always busy! Had to wait a while for valet once...only complaint.

Great place to stop between Monterey and Las Vegas, easy to find and valet parking. Lovely room with huge comfy bed and a great bar which was very friendly. Lots of restaurants nearby too if you don't want to eat in the hotel.

Hi Folks, The Padre was the latest fun find for my wife and I on TripAdvisor. This is an old downtown Hotel that has been totally redone to reflect the modern traveler. We did not quite know what to expect as we came into downtown because the heat (105) basically cleared the streets of anything breathing or moving. Once we... More

Spent the weekend at this Hotel. Very quaint place. Rooms are modern and nicely decorated. Beds very comfortable. Pillow are great (down). Lively Happy Hour and good food in the restaurants. Cut outside bar on 2nd floor - service was a little slow. Valet parking available and pets are welcome. Will definitely stay here again!.

My husband and I with our two kids aged 11 and 14 stayed just one night as we were passing through. Making reservations was easy and check in was quick and flawless. Did valet parking as there isn't many places to park on the streets especially on a Friday night. The staff was friendly and the rooms were very clean... More

Very cool building that has been completely re-done. Outstanding room with exceptional views of downtown. Professional and extremely friendly staff throughout the hotel. Fantastic lobby bar with extensive food menu. Happening place on a Saturday night. Will definitely stay here whenever we're in Bakersfield.

Who'd a thunk getting stranded in Bakersfield would have led to the discovery of this quintessentially perfect boutique hotel? Car issues on our way to Northern California led us to spend the night unexpectedly in Bakersfield. Had always heard uh-mazing things about this hotel so took the opportunity to find out more about it first hand. Wow! From making the... More

I stayed at the Padre for one night. But I wish it could have been more. This was a last minute stay as I was passing through Bakersfield. The staff at the desk were very polite. I got a single room, The 40 Winks Room. Very spacious and modern. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in... More
