The Padre Hotel is located in the heart of Downtown Bakersfield. We are very close to Rabo Bank Arena, the Fox Theater and the arts district.

That is an unrealistic expectation at the Padre or most any hotel. How would you like to be turned out of your room at 5:00 am so they had time to clean it for a 7:00 am check-in? The Padre has great people. If able, they might make such an accommodation for a long-time repeat customer.

Does the Padre have a gym?
If they have one, it's either in the basement or on the 2nd floor. Best to call.

"Customer Really Needs to improve"
"Not an overnight stay, but very excited wedding party in progress."
"Higher is probably better. The cheaper rooms are very adequate."
"We chose a high floor but don't think this was necessary as we never saw that much traffic in the area."
