We are visiting family in area and just needed a place to sleep. To a chance on this small hotel and are very pleased. Desk lady let us look at a room to see if we liked it. The refurbish they did was good! It’s an older place but nice flooring, new counters and fixtures, a jetted tub, small refer and microwave. Linens are fresh and clean, drapes new. Beds are comfortable. Very good value and pleasant stay. We will be back to this place.

Room was very clean and quiet. I have read some reviews that indicate smoke in rooms. Our room was free of any cigarette odors. Beds were the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The downside....bring your own camp chairs. There are no chairs in the room but plenty of room for a chair or two. Also no desk or table. So plan to sit on the toilet with your laptop on your lap to write any reviews. That is where I am right now in room 119. Thought the price was a little high too.

Once in a great while, adversity begets reward. On a recent road trip from WA to CA, my reservation at a national chain hotel (where I happen to have a rewards membership and frequently stay), just up and disappeared. Not a good thing to have happen on a summer weekend in the Sacramento area! After trying over a dozen local hotels, and finding nary a room in sight CA State Fair week!), I broke down and called a local roadside motel. You know the kind... popular in the 50's and 60's... typically a dozen or so rooms... run by some retired mom & pop couple... and now under the ninth or tenth owners - none of whom did anything to pull the little lodgings along through the passing decades... YUP - THAT motel! The type you remember from your second grade family vacation trip across country in that station wagon with the bench seat that faced backwards. NOW you remember!! Well this review would have been about one of those, but that's when fate stepped in and turned everything around. I call the Ranch Motel and my call was answered by a very pleasant individual that was very welcoming, polite and reassuring in his ability to not only provide accommodations, but to do so in a manner that would provide a pleasant surprise. And when questioned as to the "state" of the accommodations, he assured me I would be given ample opportunity to inspect the room prior to renting. Upon arriving, I met Victor Patel - yes, the same young gentlemen that was so gracious on the phone, and he was even more polite, engaging and pleasant in person (which was hard to believe considering what a great initial impression he made). Hearing of my plight, Victor was quick to point out that the Ranch Motel was a business venture that his family had undertaken, and were in the process of renovating and upgrading all of the rooms and the property. But enough about that, let's get right to what YOU want to know... my room - WAS FABULOUS! That's right. I was expecting to find 50 year old shag carpet, peeling forest mural wallpaper or the tenth repainting of the walls and ceilings, a bedspread that had been used to cover a floor during an engine rebuild, pillows that doubled as placemats, and the remains of a once watertight tub/shower that had long since lost that battle. BUT - what I found was a well appointed room that had been renovated with stylish hardwood flooring, ample LED lighting with switches located at both sides of the headboard and the door entry, outlets galore - and each equipped with USB charging ports, a recently remodeled bathroom with a jetted bathtub and one of the nicest (and quietest) Braun vents I've seen in quite awhile. There was also wifi, a refrigerator and a microwave. Not to mention the large flat panel TV mounted on the wall. Oh - and the bedspread and sheets were fresh, clean and appeared new. There were also two layers of pillows on the bed. Big fluffy pillows! It was obvious they were still doing little touch-ups around the room, but it was all done exceptionally well, and the progression from 50's/60's era roadside motel to modern motel accommodations was amazing. It was then that I noticed how the entire property had been transformed... nice landscaping, fresh paint, and an attention to cleanliness both in the room and around the property. OKAY, I've ranted on a little too much, so let me just say this - I am a longtime traveler that normally stays in the upper mid-level hotel chains. But the Ranch Motel proved you should never judge a book by its cover. And while I know there are still many of those other roadside motels all across the country, it was great to find one that a loving family took the time to bring back to life! And they are doing an exceptional job in the process. If you are ever in the Sacramento / Citrus Heights / Roseville area of California, stop in and say hello to Victor and/or his dad - Bob, take a look around, and give this place a try. I believe you will be pleasantly surprised. And - it might just give you a chance to relive that second grade family vacation with YOUR family... less the station wagon with the backwards facing rear bench seat! OH - and please do me a favor, tell Victor that guy from WA sent you!

Plenty of power outlets, a microwave, a fridge that works quite nice, and a big screen television with HBO and other channels. What more could you ask for? It appears someone has been remodeling or changing some things around here and it looks very nice. Had stayed here because I was visiting my Grandmother and it was close to the care home she was staying in. It was a bit on the pricey side compared to some of the motel options around but very nice and clean in general. Great staff too. Very friendly. Oh, and if you forget your supplies next door don't worry, the Dollar Tree has your back.
