We stayed at the Residence Inn Natomas recently after being re-routed home through Sacramento. When staying in an area I don't know well, I typically look for Residence Inns because the properties are fairly reliable in terms of standards. This Residence Inn, like most others, meets those standards. It's an older-style Residence Inn in which the rooms are more like individual apartments. The rooms are typically large with kitchens. The staff members were all friendly and welcoming. The shuttle was timely (even for our 4 am reservation) which was definitely appreciated. As other reviewers have suggested, this property is somewhat difficult to find -- you need to navigate through a strip mall and weave your way back to the hotel. The only part of the hotel I didn't like was that the rooms are accessed from outside, rather than from an interior hallway. It's a nice, quiet location, so this wasn't a big deal, but it's a consideration for those who prefer a more traditional hotel layout. Overall, we had a perfectly pleasant stay. Hint: there are not many food options within walking distance, so it's best to have access to a car.
