Clean, safe, convenient. Rooms said suites but really a large studio. Noisy c/hvac. Hair dryer did not work. Pool and laundry but gym was lacking. Kitchen space was nice-very convenient. Grocery stores are nearby so easy to stock. The road to enter and exit hotel was a bit tricky. And the walls were paper thin. Could hear all that neighbors... More

We stayed in one of the remodeled rooms and it was great! The kitchen was beautiful with everything you would find at home. The furniture was new and the bed comfortable. Parking was easy.

I have stayed here multiple times. The area is a little dodgy. It tells you something when this location always has rooms available and the Natomas location is sold out. They have not maintained the property very well. The rooms have very dim lights that have to stay on for a long time before they reach full brightness. Staff is... More

This was home for 3 weeks and it was absolutely perfect for us. The location was central to the things and places that we needed. Comfortable bed with side tables and good reading lights, nice shower, large vanity, several closets for spacious storage, fabulous kitchen, and a fairly good WiFi connection. The remodeled room had a full kitchen including stainless... More

This was my first stay in a renovated room. I've stayed here many times over the last 5 years and have always returned to this location because of the amazing staff, but now I can say the rooms have improved dramatically! I was in a Penthouse room that now has a regular bed downstairs that is partially closed off (these... More

I stayed at this property for a weekend while working at an event on the fairgrounds. When it comes to convenient properties in that area, this might be the best option. The nice thing about the property is that I do like the communal set up of "villas" set up around a decentralized location. It feels quaint and homey and... More

I stayed at this location last week while in town for business and unable to find a downtown hotel.

I refrained from writing a review the last two times I stayed here, knowing that they are renovating. But, on this third stay nearly three months later, I feel obliged to warn travelers that unless a renovated room can be guaranteed, you should avoid this property until they are done. I have yet to see or stay in a renovated... More

I stayed here in October 2014. I was a female, traveling alone on business. The room was clean and seemed like it had been updated. Everything was fine but safety was a little concerning here.
