We stayed at the Padre Hotel in Bakersfield because of the great reviews I read on Tripadvisior, and we were not disappointed. From the time we arrived we were greeted warmly and promptly. Our room was on the 8th floor with a good view and the room was fantastic. I slept so well, the bed was so comfortable! We had...

We spent a night at Hotel Padre. The welcome started at the valet parking right outside the hotel. The stylish lobby has a bar, cafe and fine dining restaurant located off it and had a great buzz when we arrived. Our Head Honcho suite was spacious with a separate lounge. The room decor was very chic and the bed felt...

This is not your average chain hotel. It is also a bit more expensive than such a place, but it is way better, as well. Our room on the top floor boasted nice views and was well equipped. There are real glasses and porcelain cups, no paper or plastic.

I have watched this hotel become the destination, hip place . Clearly there is a great vision behind it. The rooms and public places are cool and hip. The service is friendly and efficient. Yet, inexplicably, housekeeping misfires. The room was stocked with beverages some if which required an opener. It wasn't stocked. Although it was brought upon request, the...

The building is original but the rooms are very contemporary. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. I left something in the hotel room by mistake when I checked out. They called that afternoon to let me know and arranged to mail it immediately. Friendly staff, valet parking.

It's not health food but I highly recommend the chicken and waffles and the bottomless mimosas. The chilaquiles and the biscuits and gravy are the best in town. The food is fabulous. The service is mediocre when it comes to attentiveness. The hotel has beautiful rooms if you have an excuse to stay.

Hi EngineerTiffany, thank you for the review. Bakersfield really has some stiff competition when it comes to brunch, but the Padre brunch is one of a kind. The chilaquiles are my favorite, but with such a dynamic menu it is really hard to choose! We hope you can come back soon for a full visit in our rooms. It's a...
