I do not like city crowds & traffic, so this hotel was a great place to stay: it's located just a few freeway exits from downtown Sacramento and the rates for weekdays were very reasonable. I stayed Sunday-Monday nights and requested a room on the upper floor, away from the freeway. The outside looked like a generic "motel", but the... More

We've stayed about 5 times over the last couple of years, and the rooms are always clean and comfortable. Plus the bonus access to Old Town Sacramento via the river path, makes our stays here enjoyable.

It may be an old hotel but the property is well-kept and clean. The linens and towels were white and bed was comfortable enough to sleep on. It had very minimal toiletries but offered refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker and flat iron. I also enjoyed having Wi-Fi access all the time. One surprising find was a small gym which was...

This is in an excellent spot for visiting Sacramento. Located right on the American River, no view however. There is a gate to access the river and Discovery Park. Rooms were comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was not as good as other Best Westerns however. We had room 103 & 105 and even though there are close to the freeway,... More

Found room to be very clean and comfortable, would recommend to others, onsite restaurant is a plus, decent Mexican food and prices. Breakfast had Waffles and variety of cereals and toast, good place to stay if going to Old Sacramento and Railroad museum, less than a mile away and easy to get to

The room was clean and comfortable. The Wi-Fi was responsive. The swimming pool was clean. We liked the koi pond. The breakfast area was clean and enjoyed the self serve waffles. The staff was friendly, if unaware of the sights in the immediate area. The hotel has a secure access to the Sacramento river walking / bike path. It was... More

Left our car at Sacramento airport and stayed here before and after our flight. Convenient to airport. Room was clean and beds comfortable. Mexican restaurant very close with good food at reasonable prices. Friendly staff.

Good clean room, comfortable bed, friendly staff, shower worked well, toilet flushed, well lighted inside and out, TV easy to operate but the hard boiled egg breakfast will not make the highlight list. City panhandlers in the area so lock your car.

Quick and easy to get on/off freeway, with minimum of traffic noise. Comfortable pool/spa, and right on the bike trail (which connects with miles of riverfront trails). Restaurant right across the parking lot, but not connected to hotel. Great value for the price.
