Very affordable motel. Clean rooms comfy beds, micro/fridge in room and coffee maker . The breakfast was very good- eggs, sausage, waffles, toast, bagels , cereal and muffins. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. On the negative side, needs to upgraded on the outside of building, a bit antiquated, exterior corridors and the area is not so " inviting".... More

Linda at the Sandman was knowledgeable and talked me through the process of arranging for Fed EX to pick up and return a coat I'd mistakenly left behind. Many thanks Linda. I'll stay at the Sandman again.Carl

This hotel is located close to downtown and Old Sac and has easy access to the airport. Rooms on the back side, next to the river, are very quiet. Staff were very friendly and breakfast excellent, with cooked options.

Booked this last minute and got a good deal on a cheap and cheerful room. Little dated and rough around the edges as other reviewers have said but those looking for a tidy and clean room at a good price will find both here.

This Best Western is not considered a Best western "Plus", but that's OK if it keeps the price low. The outside is a little rough around the edges, but everything else was great! My husband said it was the best breakfast spread he had ever had at a Motel. The room was huge, with a couch, not just a chair.... More

This place is a very good stop-over after a long day on the road. This was just what we needed after nearly 500 miles coming from San Diego via the desert route skirting L.A. Great things: 1. Separate breakfast dining area in the center of the hotel and it opened at 0600 hrs. Yes! 2. Great variety and spacious dining... More

Great rate, super-clean room, really good bed, and a diner-quality breakfast. Will definitely be back. Not much of a tourist place but a totally decent place to get a quick night's sleep. Owners obviously care about the facility. Also only 1 mile to Old Sacramento, which is fun.
