“Good if you are visiting UC Davis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Found the place on Google, had never stayed in any Econo Lodge before and was a bit tentative when I booked it blind on the Internet.

Check in was statutory at 3:00 PM so had to wander around a couple of hours. The room was clean and functional. The air conditioning worked, the shower had hot water, the refrigerator gave me cold water, and the coffee maker brewed a hot cup in the morning.

Bed was comfortable and breakfast nothing to write about. WIFI worked well.

You can hear the train engines in the night loud and clear with the Amtrak station a few blocks away.

All this with a walking distance from the campus, I would say go for it.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the second level, gives you some privacy.

The hotel is located in a good location in downtown Davis and is only a 5-10min walk across to the University campus. We have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the past 4 years and keep going back because it is clean, the rooms are spacious and well located for the price. The only downside is that the walls are very thin which can be an issue when you have a bunch of people next door who are in town for a party. The hotel is not fancy by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a good option for the price.

The room was booked at the last possible minute. I was put in an inconvenient room on the second floor and found myself spending a lot of time going up and down to my car. While convenient to downtown, it really is not the most convenient to campus. There are better places in Davis, but the place isn't all bad.

Room Tip: First floor is more convenient, and you really don't gain anything with security, privacy or qui...

I had arrived early and the desk clerk gave me the room. Her personality was dry but professional, but this did not matter to me.
Room was very clean and bed was comfortable. The area was quiet and I slept good.
Will stay here again when I visit Davis.

Room Tip: Watch your step on the stairs, could be slippery if it rains.

I stayed at the Econo Lodge in Davis for a conference at the University. We had a room with two double beds. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The only downside was a single cockroach which we occasionally spotted in the room, but it didn't worry us too much because all our food was stored in the fridge. There was a microwave, fridge, TV, ironing board, iron and hairdryer in the room. The bathroom was spacious and clean and the shower/bath was excellent. I didn't try the breakfast because breakfast was provided at the conference, but a colleague informed me there were bagels, porridge and coffee available. The hotel is in easy walking distance of the university and the town centre bars and restaurants.

I have stayed at this Econo Lodge over 20 times. It is well-located, right in the heart of Davis, and is good value, especially compared to other downtown motels. The clerks are friendly, and the continental breakfast is fine, too. The rooms are clean and well-equipped. All in all, a good stay!
