Attended a railway modelers' convention in nearby Sacramento July 2011 and the convention hotels were already booked when I registered. This hotel was only a 14 min drive from downtown Sacramento where the convention-negotiated rates for the downtown hotels were in excess of $60.00/night more than this place. That turned out to be a great break since the $60.00/day savings more than paid for the rental car and all fees and fuel expended during the 5-day stay. The hotel was well-run, clean, employees well-groomed, courteous and knowledgeable of the attractions in the area. Hot breakfast was provided daily and many fast food as well as sit-down restaurants were within 15 min of the hotel. The hotel was 10 min from the airport in the direction of Sacramento with signage visible from the interstate. I'd suggest you download the directions from the airport anyway before you go. I'll definitely stay there again during my next visit to Sacramento.
