Plus:
- Very stylish design.
- We were given a quiet room (see below).
- Huge bathroom.

A few oddities:
- Valet parking only, and you have to pull up next to the sidewalk - no place to pull in while you check in.
- Popular nightclub on the bottom floor. It was so loud when we arrived around 11 p.m. that we had to shout to check in, and the receptionist shouted back. She did give us a quiet room on the top floor, where we could barely hear the music.
- The sliding bathroom door is so heavy that a weaker person would have difficulty opening and closing it.

I would not recommend this for an older traveler, but younger travelers will appreciate it.

Room is little more $ than any chain hotel but worth it for it's modern design and location. Ask for different room options. All should be great. Drinks on rooftop was very nice atmosphere. Dinner was expensive but worth every bite. I had Rib Eye. Wife had Scallops. Both were excellent. Nightclub is nice looking but DJ only played hard core rap. I'm good with top 40 (Gaga, Perry, Mars, etc.) music. But this was just hard core rap with little music behind it. Very Ghetto! Go elsewhere for music/dancing! But Padre is awesome for everything else.

I love everything about The Padre. Rooms are spacious, bed comfertable and bathrooms are great. Resterauntis superb, and the main bar is lively with great staff. The Old Pharnacy is perfect for a simple and well done breakfast. My only reservation about a high reccomendation is that it might be full next time I stay

We stayed one night at the Padre, upon arriving early, the valet welcomed us warmly, and we were checked in by the friendly attentive staff immediately.
We loved the whimsical wallpaper lining the hall walls, the room names are so clever, and our room was small but lovely, excellent designed bath, totally comfy bed, need to get one! The restaurants Brimstone and Farmacy served up delicious FRESH and very $ friendly vittles!
The history, story and renovation of this hotel, make this the ONLY place to stay in this G-d forsaken place! FYI their PR peeps have a great sense of humor!
If we come back to Bako, we'll stay here.
