Room was very inexpensive for what we got; close to downtown. Looks like it's often used for conventions or meetings. May be more expensive on weekends ... pleasant seating area in lobby. Right off freeway.

This is a lovely property in a kind of blighted area. The grounds are well maintained, it is gated, well lighted at night and the rooms are reached by going inside the hotel. There is an elevator and ice and soda machines on each floor. The rooms are spacious, clean and inviting. The staff is kind, professional and knowledgeable. A...

The building, staff, room and overall property were more than I expected for the price. It felt safe, well-maintained and amply equipped. It's obviously a little bit older building but shows to be well cared-for.

The hotel is nice and clean and easy to find off the freeway. BUT the area is sadly overrun with some very sad homeless people. Didn't feel comfortable going to either the Dennys or the McDonalds within walking distance. After a long day of driving did not want to get back in the car and drive to dinner.

First off, the staff at the Governors Inn are really pleasant and attentive, from the shuttle drivers to the front desk staff, and the breakfast attendant. I understand the hotel was recently remodeled, but I didn't really feel like it felt that way. The sheets had lots of pilling and felt old and the bathroom vent was just a grill...

I'm surprised at the high ratings. To me, this hotel is nothing special at all. The shower barely worked, to the point when I thought I might be better off washing myself in the sink. The TV had about ten channels and the breakfast was simply toast, coffee, danishes, and waffles. It's average.

Had trouble reserving a room online, couldn't get verification of room and date and no email confirmation. Called hotel and asked they check if my reservation came through; it did not. After reading other poor ratings decided to not stay here. Now reviewing my CC statement I was billed, with not email confirmations from the hotel or anything.

If you made the reservation through one of the third party reservation sites, then you would have to check with their customer service to see...

My husband and I stayed at the Governors Inn while in Saramento. The room we had was quiet and large. Housekeeping did an excellent job making sure the room was spotless. The breakfast selection was large and the attendant made sure the coffee was filled and the other items replenished. I felt safe in this hotel and would recommend it...

The experience began at the airport, Governor's Inn provides a shuttle which picks up very close to baggage claim. Driver was prompt and courteous but didn't even wait for a tip after dropping me at the hotel. Governor's Inn is well laid out, the lobby is spacious and everything is clean and neat. Restaurants are in easy walking distance just...

We weren't sure what to expect considering it was near the freeway and surrounding area was a little questionable. Turned out to be a great hotel! Room was clean, big and the bed was comfortable. Service was fantastic with complimentary breakfast and shuttle to the convention center. An amazing deal and now our go-to hotel when we have conventions in...
