The Padre Hotel, for burning the midnight oil
The Padre Hotel is one of the best hotels in Bakersfield for not sleeping. As crazy as it sounds, this western-chic hotel has a rooftop patio that hosts live music. You’ll push your bedtime as late as possible while tapping your toes, sipping cocktails and laughing with new friends. Turn in but not to bed; hop in the jacuzzi in the Head Honcho suite, allowing the warm water to cascade over you from above before getting in your 40 winks.
