Dunno what so many are whining about. This is a fine hotel. When we rolled in, check-in took all of 5 minutes. Had my key, and off we went. As we were passing through the parking lot, I was wondering how loud it was gonna be at night. The lot was half-full of industrial trucks, so I expected some rowdiness... More

It took twenty minutes or more to check into the motel.The girl at the front desk was new and she was getting overwhelmed with phone calls and people waiting to be helped.Finally the manager casually came out from the back room and answered the phone.Then another girl came out to help. At 1:30am a crew of fire fighters came in... More

The room smelled terribly -- perhaps of insecticide or harsh cleaning products. There were bugs and spiders present in room. Hotel is located in a bad part of town. The designated pet area was not adequate, just a little brick square in the parking lot, with shrubs. Pets were afraid to go near it. I absolutely would not stay there... More

I was quite impressed by the quality for the price. The room was very clean and the quality much better than most budget motels. It was slightly noisy outside in the evening because of some families but not too bad. I only too off one star because I had booked a king size room through a travel agent but was... More

Motel is another average BW that charges too much but doesn't put quality into how they maintain their overall property. The room I was in could have used some remodeling and it appeared the rest of the hotel was the same. It worked for a quick night. Location was poor.

Hotel staff was very friendly. Room was nice and clean. I stay here every time I go to Sacramento. The breakfast items were decent. The bed was comfortable. I have a bad back and the beds here do not bother my back. Pillows were nice and fluffy. Mexican restaurant next door. Not far from the Sacramento River. Great for a... More

I certainly don't recommend the breakfast. The beds are older. I suggest getting a room on the west side of the building. It's quieter and the sun doesn't shine through the window in the morning.The Mexican restaurant in front of the motel is very good.

We have stayed at this BW several times but this time the office staff were abrupt and there were many "ladies" loitering outside of our room. It did not make us feel safe at all. We will probably not stay there again.
