The property is huge but needs a lot of work. The lobby looked great but that's kind of where it stopped. We went on Memorial Day and there was almost no one there. Went to the pool and it was very dirty and the spa was just plain gross. It is really sad because the view is awesome and the... More

This facility is huge, old,tired and dreary! Our room was just fine- the bed was comfortable. The room itself was on the smaller side. We were on the first floor and it was noisy as people walking by and talking late in the evening and early in the morning. We were on the parking lot side and would have been... More

This property has such potential, but it is old, tired and broken, literally broken. Cabinet Doors falling off hinges, faucets spinning around, no cold running water, tub backing up, etc. The staff is friendly and tries its best I think, but they just can't accommodate guest needs when they don't have much to work with. They book several venues at... More

Stayed twice before in standard room and this time chose the Governor's suite: VERY SPACIOUS! View overlooking the pool, lake and fountains was beautiful. Although it is an older property about to receive renovations, it was clean, comfortable, and the staff were friendly and most helpful. From outside the hotel resembles an old mission or hacienda. Inside it is impressive.... More

Went to see Michael McDonald, so we booked a room so we could drink and NOT drive. Next time, if there is one, we'll catch a cab or uber home.The $100 would be better spent that way.The rooms are old. I smelled smoke as soon as I walked in the non-smoking room.There were burns in the carpet and on a... More

Appreciate the feedback on your most recent stay. A few days prior to your visit, the hotel transitioned over to new ownership and management. We recognized after the fact, that we could have done things differently to improve the flow of people in and out of the hotel. Lessons learned.

We have stayed in many hotels in Sacramento and this is a good find! The rooms are ample with an amazing view of a pond in the middle of the property! A nice retreat and close to shopping and downtown SAC.

First let me say I love dog friendly hotels. Responsible pets owners will of course make a big difference in the experience. But we are here for a conference...the room is looking out on a nice lake with Canada geese and ducklings...and our little patio overlooks a least 10 piles of dog s*#t. We have have called management at least... More

Room was reasonably clean, but the Sleep Number bed did not work. There weren't many customers when I checked in, and was given a room way in the back which was quite a hike to the main part of the hotel. But it was nice and quiet, and I felt safe and secure in the room, and walking to/from the... More
