The location was right, the price was right, but the hotel left a lot to be desired. Here's the list I compiled on our week stay. No hotel sign, out buildings looked abandoned, no soap, shampoo in little foil packets, 2 towels in the room (each day I had to go to the front desk and ask for more towels),... More

After leaving a extended stay that had better reviews and a better price we found this hidden gem. The staff was helpful, the whole facility smelled and looked clean, and as an added benefit we could walk to most restaurants. We left our rooms at the extended stay because of safety reasons. Not once did we feel unsafe or that... More

Very good value. Close to Old town Sacramento and easy access to the highway. Nice breakfast. Room was quiet and clean. The location was very good. Convenient yet safe neighborhood. Very good value. Highly recommended.

Our experience at this hotel was wonderful. The staff were great. Always had a clean room and the front desk people were always willing to help. Chanel Jones was especially helpful. The food was always very good.

Didn't expect such a large room! Very clean, large, and nice. The tv is older, but really can't complain. It was so much nicer than expected. It was my birthday and the front desk clerk Venesha recommended all these places for me. THAT is customer service. She got me checked in and checked out the next day quickly, all with... More

Overall it was a nice stay. The hotel seemed to be having a few repair issues during our stay. Directly outside our room was a large hole in the ceiling with a fan blowing up into it. The hotel room was dated but comfortable. I was pleased with its size. The pool and hot tub were both nice and clean.... More

Filthy, unclean (look behind the dresser and under the bed...ugh), carpet beetles, burrowing bugs tunneling through wood cabinets, bed bug infestations, the owner (cuts every corner he gets away with) doesn't use an exterminator at all! The pool is not maintained and hasn't been inspected in two years by the city and neither have their fire extinguishers -- it's a... More

Overall our stay was just adequate. We stayed in the section of the hotel with outdoor corridors. It was very dark at night. So dark that we felt a bit uneasy. We noticed several lights that were either burnt out or not turned on, including some in the stairway. Also, it appeared housekeeping was a little bit sloppy. The room... More
