Friendly staff, clean, comfy bed Low water pressure (took forever to rinse my hair), hallway and elevator is so hot! Kinda warm in the room even though it's already at it's lowest setting. WIFI is good! Breakfast was mostly microwaveable, even the pancakes.

This was definitely not a hotel but a low class motel. Would never stay here again. Business area was smack dab right in the middle of the lobby and the computers were slow and the printer did not work. The "spa" was being renovated but had no workers out there. It wasn't being renovated it was broken. The lawn chairs... More

For $5 more I could have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express or Hampton Inn and Suites. I wish I had. The lighting, faucet and hair dryer were terrible, as was the "breakfast". The vending machine was out of bottled water and they didn't serve any ice water at the continental breakfast, which served bad coffee, processed junk and a... More

Heading out on a road trip and needed a place to crash. We didn't have reservations due to not knowing how long we wanted to trek in a day. Found the hotel on our gps and called. Front staff was super friendly and said they'd have a room for us when we pulled in (didn't even make us leave them... More

The rooms were very clean. Brand new beds. Nice layout for the room. Great wireless internet! The breakfast was good, it was just a continental breakfast. It was located close enough to downtown Sacramento, with easy access to freeways, yet far enough away to not be as costly.

The staff was very pleasant, efficient, helpful and made sure everything was taken care of. The rooms were bright, clean and comfortable. The location is very convenient to all the needs shopping eating,etc. The A/C unit is very noisy probably OK if you are a sound sleeper.

I am seasoned traveler. I am a member of several hotel chains clubs including Best Western. I have stayed at Jay Best Western several times, because of the quick access . During registration , I am always greeted with racist comments. (e.g. there be no loud parties here; no smoking that, you know: curfew at 11:pm.) I don" smoke and... More

Staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms and everything very clean . First we wanted to stay just for One Night but we decided to stay another night. Old Town and local attractions to be reached in 20 Minutes. Interstate is nearby but its not as Noisy as we thought. Perfect stay , Highly recommended ..

This Best Western is surrounded. In its hay day it likely was a premier hotel. Today most of the downtown properties have lost their appeal. The current owners are struggling to keep the image alive but seem reluctant to commit to once essential services. A shuttle service to Amtrak or the airport is not offered. There are no real choices... More
