The staff, service, and exterior was all excellent. They really made you feel welcome. I never made it to the evening meals, so I could not judge them on it. But the breakfast was well prepared and the staff welcome everyone that arrived.

We made a last minute reservation (day of) while traveling through Sacramento with a party of 6. I called the hotel directly and they suggested a penthouse since we had 4 kids.

We stayed here a couple of years ago and were under-impressed. But they had availability, we could use our reward points and it's close to where we needed to be so we decided to give it another try. Wow. It was like walking into a totally different hotel. The place has been completely remodeled and is now in the 21st... More

I've stayed at enough Residence Inns to know there are far better & far worse. This falls squarely in the middle of the pack. The location is very convenient to Cal Expo, a number of shopping areas and relatively easy access to downtown. During rush hour, it can be a real pain to get into and out of the parking... More

OMG!! I am sure this is the worst Residence Inn ever! I would never go back again unless there is some serious renovations done to this place. The staff is absolutely superb. From the time you arrive, to the over crowded breakfast area, and to check out, the knowledge, diligence and willingness to help is second to none, nothing better... More

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

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
