Looked at several hotels online to visit the University with my college bound daughter scouting out schools and the hotel was a pleasant surprise. The hotel is in the heart of the community and a mere few blocks away from the University. The lobby was clean, vibrant, fresh, airy and comfortable. Driving to Davis was horrendous so we checked in after 8pm, leaving just a few minutes of daylight. The Davis area was inviting and the hotel was welcoming. Just having a 1 night stay, we checked in and had a room on the 1st floor. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable and with 100 degree weather, the a/c worked perfectly. The hotel provides you with a 10% discount to the ice cream eatery right next door (and their ice cream sandwiches were amazing by the way); also you received up to $8.50 pp on breakfast next door. We took advantage of the pool area for a short while but we walked around the area, not once, but twice, to soak up all that we could of the small downtown area. My daughter and I had a great time and great stay. If she's accepted at the school, we would choose to stay at the Hallmark again. The price was right and the hotel had alot to offer. You simply can't lose.
