The property is lovely. However, they were not prepared for my extra night stay, even though they sent me a text message to confirm it. The shower water never got hot. The bed was lumpy and I ended up with a terrible neck ache.

Unique hotel with updated stylistic decor. Nice bar/dining/coffee amenities we arrived too late to enjoy, but food looked good and fun atmosphere. Outstanding staff, from valets to front desk to housekeeping, we appreciated their friendly, helpful service. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet on our Sunday night stay. Stuck with a flat tire between SF and LA, the Padre saved the end of our weekend getaway. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast at nearby 24th Street Cafe (DDD featured), while the Firestone tire store (great service) repaired our car, and were back in the road by 10am Monday morning. We would definitely stay at the Padre again!
