Staff friendly and helpful. Place obviously needs some upgrades. Uncomfortable seating in room, A/C barely worked, bed bouncy but comfortable. Bathtub with shower. Hot breakfast choices, but only til 9 on weekdays. Laundry available. Would not be my choice to stay there again. Avg rating because of good staff - they brought the rating up.

The staff was friendly and efficient. The room was spacious with a refrigerator and very clean. The entire hotel has recently been refurbished. The bfast was fresh hot and tasty. Hot eggs bacon waffles etc. The location is close to all things good: Arden Faire Mall, Costco many restaurant choices (BJ's was the best) and 24 hour Kinkos/Fed-Ex. 5 minutes... More

If you're not needing to stay downtown, this is a perfect location. I couldn't believe that I was literally around the corner from the Sacramento State Fair at the Cal Expo grounds. I was pleasantly surprised. This is also a GREAT location for shopping. I went to Costco twice and the mall. It doesn't have the congestion of downtown, but... More

I was actually relocated to this hotel after an overbooking issue with a downtown hotel during a conference at the Convention Center. The management at Fairfield Inn was extremely accommodating and welcoming to those of us who were suddenly dumped on their doorstep! Even though they were not originally part of the conference arrangements, they made every effort to have... More

Hotel seems nice and beautiful. Carpet is soft and clean. Breakfast is great. Rooms are significantly bigger. We enjoyed our stay. We just stayed after midnight to 6.30 am, we did not have much chance to look more. I recommend to stay here if affordable.

Was "stuck" here by another hotel (Sheraton Grand Sacramento - see my TripAdvisor review for summary) after they abruptly cancelled my reservation a week prior to my arrival. I was very irritated at the time because of the situation with the Sheraton and not looking forward to this stay, but have to say, the Fairfield ended up being a much... More

Checkin was quick but the clerk Araceli was either overwhelmed or just not a guest minded employee. When I asked what time the shuttle ran she was blunt about telling us it does not run on the weekends. When I stated that I chose the property because it was supposed to have a shuttle to Cal Expo for the state... More

Our team is in town for a show for 20 days and we are very pleased with this hotel and our business travel manager, Stephania! Stephania was very helpful and responses quickly. She definitely made our job a lot easier and we can't be more thankful for her.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in a king room. One of the reasons we chose this hotel was because it was within walking distance to Cal Expo. The room was good sized (even though the bathroom is a bit on the small side). Our room was clean when we checked in, and also when we returned the following... More
