No continental breakfast, okay fine... But they don't even have a microwave or fridge in the rooms either. You'll have to go out for each meal your entire stay. I think what upset me the most though; I called 3 days in advance to see if I could check in early since I was making a 12 hr drive to... More

I was here yesterday for a conference. This is a Really great location, it is close to great shopping and restaurants, yet away from the hustle and bustle of Sacramento. I would stay her again when in the area

Wife and I travel year-round on business and have come to expect a certain level of quality associated with the Red Lion name. This facility is Red Lion in name only. Arrived late New Years Eve after attending local celebration. Upon check-in was told additional $75 deposit for "incidentals" was required and that it would be about 1 week before... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a night since we traveled to Sacramento to see a concert. It was fairly easy to find, however upon pulling up we were surprised to see that barely anyone parked at the front. It looked completely dead and the lights in the parking area were off. However, once we got inside... More

I stayed here as it was one of the CIM hotels. Got a good deal for under $80/night with taxes. My 2nd floor room was nice and spacious with a Sleep Number mattress (doesn't mean much to me but it might to you). I just had 1 bed so there were additional sofas. But that had an odd contrast with... More

This is a very large property that is not well lit and does not have many people staying at it. They have bait cars in the parking lot the police leave. The property owners would be better off tearing down and making a shopping center. The owners should invest and make what could be a nice hotel or move on... More

Room smells musty and like smoke. We had requested non-smoking. The bathroom toilet did not flush well. The bathtub looked like they repainted it. It was moldy and looked disgusting. Rooms are outdated. It is good for what you pay for. The sleep number bed was nice.

This was probably once a nice hotel with a bustling convention business but it is clearly in decline. Everything is pretty worn, more like a Motel 8 that hasn't been remodeled in a few decades than a nice hotel. The restaurant staff seem irritated by the patrons entering the restaurant and yell complaints to one another while customers try to... More

I stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago and wasn't that impressed, but since the new owners Red Lion took it over, this hotel is an impressive bargain. It is close by major shopping and freeway access to Midtown, the Capitol and Old Sacramento. The rooms are very nice and clean. There is a bar and restaurant on... More
