This is remodeled hotel with nice updates. We were on the 7th floor which is a suite with a desperate seating area from the bedroom and bath. A very large shower and sink area, but poor lighting (low amount of light) which was the reason for the one star reduction along with the crowds in the downstairs bar on Sat. The bar/clubs in the Padre was very popular on a Sat night. Great if you are younger and looking for something to do, but can be overwhelming when you return late at night and the lobby has lines for the bars and elevator. Guess do have priority. BTW no parking close so valet parking is $10 and line can be long depending the time of the day. Our bed was soft, but that can be good for some and bad for others. It did have very nice bedding and pillows.
Bottom-line is it is a very nice property in downtown Bakersfield with a retro feel, but very updated. Something to consider as a nice change from the nearby Marriott.
