I booked this hotel through Priceline, not sure exactly what to expect. The workers were all very pleasant and willing to provide ideas for sightseeing and restaurants. Our room was decorated with new furnishings and an updated bathroom. We heard little noise from surrounding rooms. Beds were very cozy. Location was a quick walk to the downtown shopping area and...

Had a reservation lost at another location and Priceline hooked us up with this last minute deal. A short family meeting with our daughter ended up being a wonderful evening spent eating wonderful food at the Brewery next door and then walking to Old Sacramento and enjoying a beautiful evening in October just before Halloween. This is the best location... More

This was my fourth time at this hotel and it was like all the other stays--this place is super clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. I came in by train and the hotel is an easy walk from Amtrak. It's also an easy walk to the awesome California Railroad Museum. It does get a ton of noise from... More

Really great staff at this Holiday Inn. Warm and very helpful. The room was okay - nothing special but comfortable. Food was above average for a mid tier hotel. Very good breakfast. The biggest problem by far was the terribly slow wifi. We stayed for four nights and the entire time it was almost unusable. The LTE reception in the... More

We stayed only one night. It is close to the river and you can walk along the promenade. It is a good bargain, certainly less money then some of the other hotels close by. Although they have free wi fi it did not work for us on the 10th floor. The beds were comfortable, The room was a little noisy... More

Stayed only one night, room clean, bed comfortable. Although we stayed on a non smoking floor the hall way had a strong cigarette smell which was unpleasant. Breakfast buffet very poor lacked variety. Front desk service excellent, breakfast restaurant poor, waited for 5 mins(I timed it) to be seated no one acknowledged us so we sat ourselves. Our server, Stephanie,... More

This hotel is located between Old Sacramento and Downtown Sacramento near the Downtown Plaza. It is a rather ordinary hotel, but the rooms are clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. The location is what makes this hotel a great place to stay. It was pleasantly busy. I stayed here two nights on a business trip and was able... More

For the price, location and friendly service this is a wonderful, place to stay. Clean rooms, great feel as you enter the hotel and great staff. Can't beat the location. Next to the shopping mall and entrance to Old Town Sacramento. Good breakfast buffet and decent restaurant.
