I stayed at this hotel on the 9th and 10th of October. I had rented a 1 bed room for 109.00 and when I got there I asked for 2 beds which he said was 120.00 ( should have been 119.00 for 10.00 more) We asked for nothing except how to work the old t.v. and to remove a fire... More

Dear Guest, We are sorry that you feel that way. Your room type booked was for a One bedroom, you had asked for a two bed room. Therefore you had paid the difference in room type. Every transaction is processed in front of the guest, never do we charge a guest without their consent. We have no problem providing service... More

No problems checking in or with managment, but the room seemed somewhat dirty and I couldn't get the outdated TV to work. The mirror had been removed from the wall and was on the floor. The towels did not smell fresh, and the elevator reminded me of the housing projects. I felt like I was in a welfare hotel. The... More

I have been attending the Board of Realtors Legislative Day held at the Capitol and the Convention Center and have returned to this place everytime. The price for being only 6 blocks from the best that downtown Sac has to offer and easy access to transportation was enough for me. I just needed a place to sleep and shower between... More

Writing a review for four young adults, this hotel we stayed at was very unfriendly towards us. We were staying for a Anime Convention, and they started to already accuse us off the back when we first arrived and wanted to charge more for just having guests visit us and hang out in our hotel room. Not only that, but... More

Honestly, I am not a picky hotel/motel goer. I realize you need to expect to receive what you pay for. I used to clean motel rooms so I can overlook certain things and I can appreciate work of the housekeepers. The manager of this establishment was very rude to my friends. He called them a rude name and told them... More

Went from the Sheraton Grand to here due to a delayed travel plan and economics. The place was very clean, comfortable (100 degree days) air conditioning great. Location convenient to downtown, plenty of places to eat and a local market within walking distance. Not your average motel/Inn. Breakfast too every morning. Great Value. Had I known this prior to th... More

I booked a room here 4 MONTHS in advance of a conference. Two weeks before the conference, I received an email saying the hotel had been overbooked and my reservation had been cancelled. My reservation was a day shorter than most other conference attendee's, and I'm guessing they cancelled my reservation when they received another for more days. In looking... More

I had a reservation for this hotel in a couple of weeks, and received the following email (yes, it was all in capital letters and they didn't even sign their name at the bottom): "WE REGRET TO INFORM YOU THAT THE HOTEL HAS EXPERIENCED AN OVERBOOKING FOR YOUR STAY AND WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE YOU" There was...

I got this through Priceline's name your own price bidding on two stars for three nights at USD 42 plus fees, no refunds. Last year, I won a higher rated two and a half star hotel for less in a slightly better area. We only stayed the first night, my spouse booked a much nicer hotel at more than three... More

This is a family run place, about 20 minutes to downtown and a short walk from the trolley. My room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Good service from staff. Breakfast is worth a miss even though it is free - there are other options a short walk away. All in all, this is good value and worth considering if you... More
