“Worth considering”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

This is a family run place, about 20 minutes to downtown and a short walk from the trolley. My room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Good service from staff. Breakfast is worth a miss even though it is free - there are other options a short walk away. All in all, this is good value and worth considering if you need budget accommodation just a little out of downtown.

It's a review of my brief contact with hotel stuff, and I have no idea how this hotel

My stay in Sacramento was to begin on June 8, and I booked a room the beginning of March. At the day of the check-in, before arriving in hotel I got a call from an hotel stuff, and was "notified" that this hotel is overbooked (50 rooms booked, 30 rooms only exist). And advise was to move in different hotels, which are located 2 miles away from the down town and price for room there was higher for few tens of $.

All that Americas Best Value Inn Downtown made for me - is a compensation of 20% of difference between prices for ABVI and other hotel. So I have to pay for a room in another hotel 1.5 times more than I planned.

Few my colleagues, who booked a room there, got the same problem, but two of us got a room in ABVI, and they told us that internet didn't work.

There is nothing "fancy" about this place. It's nice enough, decent enough, for when you need a place to stay, and you are on a budget. No snack vending machine. The "continental" breakfast, is choice of toast, per-packaged danish, cold cereal.

Definitely, there are some things left to be desired about this place. The lighting is stark, the carpet is dirty, smudges on the walls, etc. The "continental breakfast" looked so unappetizing that I just skipped it, and I'm usually a sucker for free food. This is no Holiday Inn.

But then you're not paying Holiday Inn prices either. In fact, with the Orbitz discount, I daresay it was downright cheap. And many of the nicer hotels don't have breakfast at all, unless you pay a price that makes the breakfast just as unappetizing.

If you ask yourself what you really need in a hotel, not what you would ideally want, this place has what you need. The bed itself is clean and soft. The temperature control works well. No noise. No creepy crawlies bit me at night. There is a refrigerator. Bathroom is clean, soap is provided and water pressure is good. Parking is free, and they even let me park all day on the day of check-out, which is a big deal because it was a workday and I had an all-day conference and meetings in the State Capitol. Finding parking that doesn't cost an arm and a leg is always a problem near the Capitol on a weekday.

Would I stay here if it wasn't the cheapest place around? Probably not. But for the price, it was well worth it.

At first I was against the idea of staying at a downtown hotel, but boy am I glad I stayed at this hotel. It really exceeded my expectations, starting with the most friendliest staff to the comfortable and clean rooms. The location was perfect everything is within a walking distance, this is a very safe hotel. Since the hotel is not far from the gym where most pro mma fighters train odds on that you'll meet some of them at the hotel, I met a couple of them from Switzerland at the lobby this afternoon. Overall I enjoyed staying at this hotel and definitely will be staying here whenever I am in town.

The place is a good value. Our sheets were dirty but they came and fixed the problem quickly. The staff can be overworked at night though. Our smoke detector kept beeping because the batteries needed to be changed and they were too busy to get to us. Overall it's a cheap place and reasonably close to downtown.
