“California State Fair Splash Dog competition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

We have Splash Dogs (Dock jumping) and compete in events from Oregon, California, and Nevada. We must stay in hotels/motels that allow dogs. This location was one of the best we have stayed at, other than a few problems with the pet area not being taken care of, we would stay here again if we are in this area.

I loved this place! Room was clean with exception of a few small spiders. Hate em! The sites decor was fabulous reminded me of a tribal land. Lots of wooden carvings well placed throughout the property. Loved the swimming pool area, very well kept. There were pool towels available, clean bathroom, keyed entry, nice large sized tables great for eating on with family, hot tub was like bliss, pool was a bit cold. The website stated heated pool. It was okay because it was close to 100's. restaurant near the hotel had great authentic Mexican food. The service was not so good. They got our order wrong twice. Overall awesome stay. Oh, the breakfast was awesome very well organized and stocked. I thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

We stayed at the Sandman Motel for several nights and were very pleased with our experience. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our 2nd floor room faced the levy at the back of the property in front of the Sacramento River, which could be accessed through a gate behind our building. It was very quiet, and a nice trail ran along the river to Old Sacramento. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed and a nice bathroom. The motel was very convenient to the I 5 freeway and also to Old Sacramento for dining and the wonderful railroad museum. It was also easy to get downtown to visit the capital. The breakfast at the motel was very average in a small special room in the building in which we stayed. I think that it could get very crowded. With the convenience to so much of town and with the wonderful view from Room 252, we would definitely stay at the Sandman again. There was plenty of free parking at the motel.

Nice, Comfortable, quiet, and convenient. My only complaint was that their breakfast area was so small and cramped. People were bumping into each other getting their food and there was no empty tables for our party of 4 to sit. Also, there wasn't much protein items. How about putting out some individual yogurts, cream cheese, peanut butter, individual cheese slices, granola, etc. Come on BW, I bet you can think of some cheap and healthy food choices. Other than breakfast, this hotel is clean, seemingly safe and inexpensive. Just what we were looking for on a quick trip to Sac.

Great value for price. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. The kids enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi. The breakfast room was clean and provided a basic continental breakfast. Easy access to attraction in Sacramento. No major issues.

This Best Western has easy access on and off Interstate 5. The employees are all very accommodating and friendly. Rooms and clean and the breakfast is the standard motel fare. If freeway noise bothers you when you have the windows open, you might opt for a Best Western further from the freeway. We've stayed here several times and have enjoyed the trail along the Sacramento River that leads to Old Town. It's a nice walk after having been in the car all day. There's also a free shuttle to the airport.

Room Tip: A room facing the river might be quieter but sunnier in the afternoon.
