I stay at IHG brands all the time. This hotel gives a bad name to the Holiday Inn brand. The bathroom smelled awful- like it was flooded and/or cleaned with dirty rags. The shower flooded and I called the front desk. They told me they would send up new towels and maintenance. Two hours later, it was still a no... More

We arrived on a Sunday night just after 9pm & wanted some dinner.. We asked at check in & we were told the hotel room service ended at 9pm. We asked about local options & were advised there wasn't anything local unless we caught a cab to the other end of town where a couple of places serve till 10pm... More

This was our first time at the Holiday Inn Sacramento, and we were really surprised. It has the feel of a higher-end resort in downtown Sacramento, and looks much nicer inside than outside. The room was very comfortable and quiet; the decor looks like it was updated within the past few years. The layout and accommodations seem to suggest this... More

This is an older property and I was NOT expecting such a great stay. The hotel staff is very professional and accommodating. My room king room was very nice. Clean, spacious and comfortable. Only ding was that I had no fridge. The location is great as it opens out to the Old Town walkway so you're there in 10 mins... More

Location location location. Excellent downtown location with wonderful views of the bridge, downtown, old town and the river. Rooms were clean and updated. Ample hot breakfast was like Denny's in the lobby. Filled us up. Everything you'd expect from a holiday inn. Wonderful brand and a lovely hotel. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

I would rate this hotel 3.5. The location is conveniently close to Old Town. Rooms are spacious and the bed was comfortable. However, rooms are tired and in need of updating. My room was unfortunately located next to the ice machine, and although I don't think anyone used it when I was in the room, there was considerable noise from... More

This hotel is perfectly placed for Old town and Macy's. Rooms are spacious and the executive floor rooms give you access to the exec lounge and free drinks and nibbles - a really nice touch! The rooms would benefit from a fridge and a safe. Other than this, the service was excellent and we had a really enjoyable stay! Thanks!

Walk right out the door then under the freeway and you're at old town in 3 minutes. Hotel facilities were acceptable. WiFi was good. Pool was small but good enough for the kids. Restaurant was reasonably priced and the bread for my sandwich was rather hard but the service was good. Hotel had plenty of parking and well lit but... More

I stayed at this hotel only because the conference I was attending was at their facility. I was very pleasantly surprised. I have been in some old tired HI's but my room was updated and fresh. They also let me check in when I arrived around 11am although I did hear them telling other people that they would have to... More

Went to this hotel for a two day business trip. Walk out the side door and you are steps away from Old Sacramento. There used to be a two story mall but everything is almost abandoned. Macy's and a few small stores are left. I heard a basketball stadium is moving in. The rooms are average size. The rooms don't... More
