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.

It only about 3 minutes to have the registration process done. The breakfast was great and the staff at the reception were very helpful. I would urge anyone to stay at this hotel!!! The room is fully equipped with the fridge and microwave and that is quite convenient.

I didn't like being checked in by a 10 year old girl. Also, my room was more expense than what was listed on Google. The hotel needs to be updated. However, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable.

Although the hotel looks a bit dated from the outside, the rooms are very nice and clean and large. The pool is clean but looks out to the parking lot. They could block the parking lot view a bit to make it a better experience. The check-in lady was unfriendly and did not explain anything nor did she show us... More

The Sacramento river behind the hotel is a very scary place to walk. The office attended told us we could walk to old town from there but after about 1/4 of a mile we turned around and headed back. There was trash everywhere and homeless people sleeping by the walk way. There were people who looked like they were on... More

I hate to bash a place, but we agreed that it warranted it. Let me present a balanced review: The good: We got a room off Interstate 5, it was last minute and for $150 (with a pet). Exhausted from driving, we ate at the Mexican place next door and it was awesome. Room was about as clean as could... More
