I have been at the Governors Inn for most of a week, and am very impressed. The clean, bright room is well-furnished. The staff is friendly, efficient, and has been responsive in an astonishingly timely manner to a broad of requests at all hours of the day and night. My stay has been during a relatively frenetic time for them,... More

I booked the hotel at the last minute for a week-long conference in Sacramento. I found the hotel to be conveniently located near downtown (though I had a car to travel the about 1.5 miles to the convention center) & clean. My room was quite large and the hotel was a step above the average mid-range hotel in decor, friendliness... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights with our toddler and newborn while looking for a home in Sacramento. At check in I asked if it would be possible to pay the difference between the room I reserved and the king suite to upgrade so we would have a little more space but was told that wasn't possible...

I was in town for a conference and booked this hotel through priceline.com. Fantastic customer service from the front desk staff, cleaning staff and shuttle drivers. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Whomever is conducting the customer service training for this hotel should be given 5 stars! The rooms are spacious, clean and good WiFi connection. Sara at the front... More

The Governor's Inn is located right off of I-5, just north of downtown Sacramento. Our room was very spacious and furnished well. We did have some issues with the shower. The water pressure is very low. There is a complimentary breakfast, which is minimal at best. All in all, for the price it is a good choice for those who... More

Governor's Inn is nearly at the intersection of Interstate 5 and Richards Boulevard in Sacramento. It's a privately owned property and next to a police station, so we felt extra secure. My friend and I had called just two days before and got an excellent rate, with our AARP discount: two queen beds, one night, $93 and change including tax.... More

Just spent 2 nights here, but have stayed in so many hotels in Sacramento since my last visit 2-1/2 years ago, I forgot what I said. Generally, it's the same very nice hotel in a "transitional" neighborhood, so visitors need to know that. There were a few homeless people wandering the area, but they aren't dangerous. They don't come on... More

I stayed here for two nights on June 18 and 19 after bad experiences with Vagabond Inn. The room was good. There was a laundry basket in the bathroom which I never seen in other hotels.It was much better than other motels that I stayed. It was near the police station and Amtrak. Overall a quiet location, except for the... More

We had a great time at this hotel. First impression was great! Nice lobby, nice staff! Everyone so friendly! Our room was very nice! And I am picky! The bed was comfy...we stayed 2 nights. McDonald's was right next door and Denny's across the street. Easy to get to. The rate was really good too! I would stay there again!!... More

The property was pretty nice overall but lacked attention in a few areas, and it's not in a nice area, seems to be kind of a thoroughfare for transients. Would give 2.5 if that was an option. The lobby is very nice and there are smaller lobbies on the other floors. I was on the third floor and immediately when... More
