A weekend getaway from the Los Angeles area, Bakersfield seems far and close enough. Not being familiar with "Bako" I searched the hotels and the Padre had nice reviews and dreamy photos on various sites.
The hotel was the main reason for the destination. I didn't want to leave the footsteps because this hotel had various restaurants/cafes and bars to choose from inside. The decor is captivating and someone paid close attention to detail for everything! Relaxing ambiance in the patio and lounges. A soul/funk cover band played on Sunday night under the stars and hanging light bulbs.
Dinner at Brimstone - loved the huge chairs that make you feel like a small king. Tasty appetizers and burgers.
Breakfast at the Farmacy Cafe - best French toast I've ever had, my boyfriend said his pancakes were the best he'd ever had!
If they had a pool, hot tub, or day spa, it would be the icing on the cake! Not much for shopping around the area. Although we walked to a vinyl record shop, fresh juice bar, and consignment stores.
