This is a reasonably priced inn/hotel close to downtown Sacramento and the airport. It has a very good included breakfast and is within walking distance of old Sacramento and its restaurants. There is a McDonald's located next to it and a Denny's across the street, as well as a convenient chevron station. Rooms are spacious and include the usual toiletries... More

Friendly check in, stayed here for 5 nights, surprisingly good choice, small pool area with complimentary breakfast, wifi, and free parking thumbs up for that. Room was pretty big, 2 big kingsize beds, nice big flat screen. Breakfast was continental, and complimentary so dont take it for more than it is, oakmeal, danish pastries, 3-4 different bagels, apples, yogurts, and... More

I have used this hotel many times and it's been great every time. I have really appreciated their free parking when I fly out of the Sacramento Airport. In fact I am doing of this review because I am getting ready to book another room. Thanks Governor Inn.

I stayed one night in early May for business in the area. It was a surprise to see how spacious the room and the public areas are. It was updated somewhat and hope they continue. Carpet pattern in the public area remind me of the late 20th century. Staffs are very nice. No restaurants in short walking distance unfortunately. Otherwise... More

I needed a room for a few nights centrally located in Sacramento. The usual place we use around the corner was fully booked but this hotel was available, a very good price and well reviewed on Trip Advisor, so we booked a king room. The hotel is very conveniently located near the 5 freeway in the Richards neighborhood. It's also... More

Beautiful hotel and room. Very spacious. Being a single woman on a business trip, I was a little uncomfortable with this area of town. Maybe because I had never been there, but it just appeared a little shady.

I would give the Governors Inn a 5 but they have one of the worst free "breakfasts" offered and they are letting the outside go. This is our go to stay in Sacramento. And the location is fantastic. A short drive to Old Town, The Capital and fun along the Garden Highway. We usually have a room facing the 5,... More

There are quite a few comparable hotels in the area, but when it comes to the comfort of accommodations v price, this always comes out the ultimate winner. Larger rooms, comfortable beds and very quick check in process make it a winner for me in its class. Although this hotel is not located downtown per se, it's only 10 min... More
