Unfortunately, that is one of the problems with using pee pads. Even once you try and remove the pad, if it has already become a habit and learned behaviour, it will be extremely hard to break and you could find him peeing on the hardwood floor in the same spot for a long time to come.
My sister's fiance has a bulldog, and they trained him to go on pee pads in the kitchen when they weren't home. Now, 3+ years later, he has free roam of the house and can hold his bladder for hours, but if he doesn't feel like he can hold it, he will run to the exact same spot the pee pads used to be.
It's cute when its a little puddle of puppy pee, not when its pee from an 80 pound dog.
I really would advise to wake up every few hours in the middle of the night and take him out. It will be a habit that will be really hard to break if he learns he can just pee when you're sleeping.
