The Padre Hotel is located in the heart of Downtown Bakersfield. We are a short walk to the Rabobank Arena, the Fox Theater and the arts district. Originally built in 1928, the Padre was renovated and reopened in 2010, becoming Bakersfield's first and only sophisticated boutique hotel with restaurants, nightlife, wedding venues and conference facilities. We look forward to welcoming you to the Padre Hotel.

I always stay here when I come to town if I can afford to. It’s pricey but by far the best hotel in Bakersfield and has everything you need either at the hotel itself or close enough to walk to, if not.

Hotel's Favourite
Another great stay at the Padre! Host Chris checked in with us multiple times to make sure our stay was perfect. The Head Honcho suite was so comfortable and a great way to relax after a show at the Fox. Cocktails downstairs were the perfect way to cap off the evening. Thanks again, Chris and rest of the staff at the Padre. We'll definitely see you again soon⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We stayed one night for a business trip. The room (Room 408) is very nice, modern, and quiet. The AC is very quiet and powerful which we loved. The hotel's interior is beautifully styled. The food and drinks at Brimstone were delicious and service was great. Breakfast at Farmacy was also delicious. The staff were courteous and responsive. The bed was wonderfully firm, but the niceness was slightly negated by the prickly feathers in the topping; we later learned it could have been removed. I was concerned about stories regarding the hotel being haunted due to very real childhood experiences (we booked before we learned about them), but thankfully nothing happened during our stay. We had an elevated upscale experience and will ask for the same room next time.

My girlfriend and I stayed here to see a concert over the weekend. The hotel was gorgeous from the lobby to the rooms. We were super pleased and very impressed with the level of customer service from literally everyone we came in contact with at The Padre Hotel. The restaurant and bar downstairs was the perfect spot to unwind and grab a bite to eat before and after our show. Good food and good drinks were had. I had proposed to my girlfriend that night at the concert and coming back from the show to a really beautiful romantic vibe of a hotel was the perfect ending to the night. This is definitely THE spot for us if we’re ever in town again and I would recommend this place to literally anyone, they have a real good thing going for them over at The Padre.

Booked The Padre Hotel for a concert. At first I booked because it was close to the venue. But I was surprised when we arrived that the hotel looked very modern! There is overnight valet parking available, attendants were very welcoming. Front desk was a quick check in (did the pre-check in the night before). The room looked very modern with high ceilings, the bathroom looked newly remodeled, and the beds were SUPER comfortable! We ordered in-room dining (cauliflower fritters, cilantro hummus, and a few drinks) and everything was delicious! Desteny, thank you for being available early in the morning to answer my message. Chris, thank you for accommodating my request and for an easy checkout process! Overall a great experience! Will definitely be rebooking if I come out to Bakersfield again!

The staff was amazing. The building is gorgeous. Everything about the room was amazing. Comfortable and nice bed/bedding. Shower was really nice as well. Check and check out was easy. Parking is right across the street if you don't want to valet and there is open street parking as well. Valet is really reasonable.

ARRIVAL: The valets are great, but there was no bell service, so I found myself manipulating a luggage cart up the elevator. I didn’t realize how inept of a bellhop I am until I had to do it myself. The front desk is fine, and nice, but basically is disinterested. Kind of that typical blasé “meh” personality we have in the Central Valley, and not the red carpet attitude this hotel deserves. THE STAY: I stayed in a suite. Very nice room for the price. The housekeeping staff is superior. The bed was like sleeping in a cloud. I had very restful sleep. BREAKFAST: “Breakfast is available at 7am,” says the front desk at check in. It is not complimentary, which is fine, but they should figure out a different way to say that. When I went to the cafe for breakfast, I stood there while the barista ignored me for several minutes. So I found breakfast elsewhere. BAR: Bar top needs revarnishing because it’s sticky and my sleeve got stuck to the bartop. The bartenders were friendly. Drinks were standard-issue. CHECKOUT: Meh, nothing to see here in the lobby. The valet was great again. OVERALL: Certainly great for Bakersfield, might fine even for other cities. If they get the lobby staff excited about providing excellent client experience, it will be truly amazing.

I booked the Farmer Daughter room for my daughter and my new son-in-laws wedding night. They really loved the room and service was excellent! My daughter took her car and luggage Friday morning and when they arrived Saturday night after their wedding their luggage was in their room along with chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. They ordered room service the next morning. Everything was perfect!

I am so glad we found this beautiful hotel! They made this quick stop in Bakersfield much more meaningful to be able to enjoy the historic ambiance of the town. The room was beautiful and so comfortable. And breakfast was filling and delicious!

Don’t let the dated exterior fool you. The inside is completely renovated and is beautiful. The restaurant was really good, there is a small coffee shop in the lobby as well. We booked a basic king size bed room. It was small but efficiently outfitted with all that is needed. The bathroom is newly renovated and outfitted with hairdryer and makeup mirror. Bed was comfortable. Highly recommend a stay here when in Bakersfield!
