I am a repeat customer. I have stayed at more expensive places in Sacramento but this is my go to hotel. Super friendly staff and rooms are very clean. Beds are the most comfortable I've encountered. The room is laid out well for sharing and retaining a bit of privacy. The bath/dressing area is out of sight of the beds.... More

I agree with Robert V. Unlike some others, i thought the hotel was very clean; may depend on the housekeeper. The area is dicey. You're ok when it's light out, but since I'm a contractor and from the Eastern time zone, I just stayed on East Coast time. so I was up at 4am and in bed by 9pm. I... More

My niece and I take a ladies only road trip every year. This year she did the planning and chose this hotel. Our room was very clean and comfortable, as were all the public rooms that we saw. The AC in our room worked like a champ. Anyone familiar w/Sacramento knows the temps can be in the triple digits for... More

We stayed here because of all the great reviews but unfortunately didn't have the same experience it seems most others did. The first room they gave us smelled strongly of pot. I called the front desk and they sent the maintenance man down to verify. He came down, called the front desk to let them know we were telling the... More

The front and inside of the hotel are nice. The staff was very nice and the room was clean. The parking lot is large and there was plenty of open space for parking. The only downside is that the area is a little run down and the only food that is within walking distance is a McDonald's and a Denny's.... More

For starters, I recommend this hotel. We stayed with them driving to San Diego from Washington state, and then again on our way back. The facilities may be a bit dated, but I value CLEAN, and this hotel is just that. It is low priced, and it is very apparent that this hotel is valued by the staff. They are... More

Dear JAMartin66, We are so happy to have helped reunite your son with the stuffed animals that were accidentally left behind at our hotel.

The hotel is easy to get in and out of and has good amenities. The price is reasonable and the stay was very pleasant. Every employee with whom we interacted was friendly and helpful.

If you're just looking for a place to sleep and need an average motel at a good price, this will fit the bill. The interiors are dated and feel like you're walking into a nursing home, and the room we stayed in had a window but was still dark. The location is also a little farther from downtown so you'll...

Great little gem close to I5, clean, well maintained, good price...but sketchy area as lots of homeless wandering around. However, hotel does fantastic job of keeping grounds & hotel safe from intruders. Good place to have a "base camp" while exploring downtown Sac, & easy on & off freeway location as well. Definitely one of my first choices when visiting... More
