The property is very well maintained and secure. The pool area was very clean and in a courtyard with a large lake behind it. The rooms were very clean, sleep number beds, (NO fridge or microwave in rooms), and flat screen TV. The bed was comfortable and the bath clean with plenty of hot water. The rooms facing the pool...

After a string of mediocre chain hotels we weren't expecting much, but from check in, I was blown away by the customer service, from the friendly clerk at the check-in desk, to housekeeping who left us a welcome note, and we even got a call to see if our room was alright. The expansive hotel had an amazing pool, and... More

This is a tough place to review. The staff were excellent. They really seemed to care about the hotel and customers. Starting with check in, my reserved room was not ready at around 4:30 pm. (Their policy says check in is at 3 pm) They called me about 530 to say the room was ready. The room was clean. Like... More

We stayed here the night before hopping on the Amtrak. It was a wonderful hotel with great balconies. Super comfy Sleep Number beds and very clean rooms. The outdoor pool was great too! Close to the freeway and lots of parking. It also has its own private little lake with a giant fountain in the middle. We will definitely stay... More

Great value! Number bed and luxurious bedding made for good night's sleep. Air conditioning made room comfortable during a heat wave. Bathroom amenities were excellent. Towels were thick and luxurious. Staff was very friendly. Great pool and man made lake.

I needed a room to sleep for a few hours while partying in Sacramento. I got an excellent deal through Priceline. It was such a great rate that I panicked and call the hotel to give me a good room in one of their better buildings. The hotel obliged. I was allocated Room # 238 that overlooked the lake. As...

In disrepair old & tired. Pulled up drove around property. Didn't look safe contemplating staying, cancelled reservation. Do not recommend, it has potential only for a complete renovation. Booked on hotels.com lucky it's easy to cancel there are better options in Sacramento.

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
