3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for a few nights. The location is a nice midway point between the airport and downtown, but a smidge closer to downtown. Parking is ample, and access to the river trail is good. I found my room to be nicely maintained and clean upon arrival, though maid service appeared to make the bed and little else in terms... More

This is a clean, reasonably priced, motel. They provide an enjoyable breakfast, and have a convenient access to a walking or riding path to old town Sacramento. A nice stay. I noticed the pet area, and, although we did not bring our dog along, it is nice to see that the option is available.

Right off of I-5, minutes from downtown Sac and the arena, access to the river. The room for the most part was clean and the extra pillows were waiting for me in my room but what I love about Best Westerns are their breakfasts. What I've learned is that they differ from place to place and this location I would... More

Good location , especially for bicyclists, with easy access to the American River bike trail. Rooms in back on second floor overlooking the bike path are quiet and scenic. Breakfast was one of the worst we have ever had at a Best Western. Breakfast room was small, overcrowded, hot and uncomfortable. Eggs were cold, orange juice machine was broken. Out... More

This motel is showing some age but it is well taken care of. It was very clean, has good TV and internet service. The breakfast is OK with hot eggs and sausage. The staff were all very friendly and professional. The location is convenient to the freeway. We were heading north in the morning and we missed all the rush... More

I want to thank all the staff especially Vasant the manager who went above and beyond the call of duty to make our trip so enjoyable. He truly cares about his guests and his pride, his work ethics are clearly demonstrated in all of his staff. Darlene - at the front desk who was gracefully multi-tasking - thank you! Words... More

This hotel is a treasure. Get a room on the second floor over looking the bike trail and Sacramento River. At first glance I thought I made a terrible mistake but as soon as I entered the Lobby I was swept away by the exceptional service by the staff and GM Vasant. What a true host he is. I never...

The hotel filled our need for over night stay to & from AZ. Close to freeway & easy to locate. Rooms are clean & large with sofa. Easy parking & balanced breakfast. Definitely will use this location again.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our night stay here. The internet worked great and our room was nice and clean. Very close to old town Sacramento which was why we stopped in Sacramento. The breakfast was ok. The omelets were cold in the middle and just not very good. The waffle machine was a homerun and will be what... More

This motel will stand out in our memory because of one person that exemplified the word service. A young lady named Darlene was one of the friendliest greeters we've met at a front desk and when we had a problem jumped into action to get it taken care of. Best Westerns are almost always a good place to stay but... More
