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.

I stayed here for a conference I was attending. There were cheaper and more convenient motels and fancier hotels, but this was the balance that fit my needs and budget. Spacious Queen room with good selection of TV channels. Some outside noise, but not bad. I didn't use the pool or hot tub (it was a rainy day in December)... More

Located convenient to downtown area where I attend art events. Easy access to and from I-5 freeway. Well appointed rooms with very comfortable beds. Easy to make direct telephone reservations with front desk staff. Best Western Rewards account information including member number is kept on file for ease of booking a stay on short notice.

The hotel has the best staff with the best attitude. Always helpful. Rooms are always clean and comfortable. Management keeps things quiet. Nice pool and the restaurant serves great food. Close to the Sacramento river with easy access to outdoor activities, a large variety of restaurants and bars.

The motel was convenient,. There is a great Mexican restaurant right next door. The staff was very polite and helpful. The bed left a bit to be desired, it was quite firm. Our room was very quiet, even though the freeway was very close.
