The rooms at the Sandman are spacious, have nice furniture, a fridge & microwave, and a good quality television. There is some room for truck parking, even one spot for a tractor/trailer. My wife and I like that the hotel is right on the American River Bike Trail. The walk to Old Town Sacramento is only a little over a half-mile via the trail. Discovery Park is just north of the hotel via the same trail.
The complimentary breakfast is decent, and the attendant who takes care of the breakfast is always a nice treat to see. She is always friendly and has a smile for everyone.
