So this is my first stay in Bakersfield with my girlfriend and best friends and we decided to go to a concert and stay at the Padre Hotel for the night. Just when I thought this night couldn't get any better, it did! We're hungry at 2am knowing there's a nightclub downstairs and a very busy staff, when we heard there was a short supply of sandwiches, this specific employee named Chris Kuhn went above and beyond to satisfy us 100% at our stay at this beautiful hotel. He made us sandwiches on the spot and delivered it in such a short time, very polite and respectful. He talked to us for a short bit and is a very pleasant person. The room itself is very well decorated and CLEAN! I've never slept in a bed this comfortable in my entire life. The tv is XBOX 360 compatible, the nightlife is very energetic. 10/10 would stay at this hotel again.

Hi ThisAbeKid, thank you for the wonderful review! Catching a concert and then staying at the Padre is the best way to enjoy Bakersfield. Our staff always strives to go above and beyond to ensure every guest experience is top knotch. Chris is no exception to that! We hope you can visit us again soon, maybe visit on a Thursday when Bakersfield Unplugged is going down in the Prospect Lounge? We have great local talent that is showcased every Thursday night and we often feature some delicious drink specials as well. See you soon!

I was very appreciative of a particular staff person, Chris Kuhn. I had a bad evening of sleep to the travel the day before. I was not feeling well and it was 2am. Not only was Chris helpful, he spent some time with me chatting outside just to make sure I was ok. He made sure I had everything I needed and watched over me. He went well above expectations and made sure I understood it was company policy to treat the guests that way. I was surprised to say the least that he gave credit to management vs himself.
I am a CEO of a company who is partnered with Chartec here locally; We were booked at the Marriot this upcoming trip at the end of Feb. I have cancelled that booking and will be booking all future stays at the Padre. If all your staff is like Mr. Kuhn, There is no other Hotel that I will book for myself or my staff.

I loved the decor in this hotel. As a decorator I notice tile, carpet, wall color etc. The wall paper in the halls was a little much. But the room was fabulous. The tile in the bathroom and shower area was absolutely beautiful. I actually just wanted to be in the room and not go anywhere.

Can't say enough about the comfortable bedding.

Had dinner at the Belvedere Room inside the hotel. The food and service were defiantly 5 star.

Had room service for breakfast. I couldn't believe the wonderful omelet for just $8. Usually room service prices are so high.

This 4 star hotel is more like a 5 star hotel in service and accommodation but priced like a 2 1/2 to 3 star.

If you can't already tell I loved this hotel and wish there was one in every city.
