“It's only good as a place to stay on graduation day.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Awful and wanting in many areas! It was Dirty, Stingy, Smelly, and Insufficient in toiletries. No magnifying mirror for putting on make up. On the floor I found a couple of Advil that were not disposed of by housekeeper. Housekeeper left our dirty mugs and glasses and didn't provide clean ones for the following day. The bathroom lights were on moving sensor so even before crossing the threshold, the lights came on shining across the way on the bed and on your sleeping partner in the middle of the night.

We were very pleased with the Aggie Inn. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. We were surprised to learn that our room was the smallest one in the hotel. It is not described as a cottage but is actually attached to one of the revamped cottages. Coming from the UK where hotel rooms are generally smaller than in the US, we found it very adequate. It had a queen bed (UK king size), a settee which could be converted to a full/double bed and ample space to move around. The carpet and furnishings were fairly new and scrupulously clean.

There was an excellent choice of breakfast cereals, danish pastries, bread and bagels for toasting, waffle maker, yoghourts and a good selection of teas. The only cooked food was hard boiled eggs.

Room Tip: A relative booked the room for us and asked for a quiet room, which it was, so I would suggest that...

Pros:
Clean
Convenient location

Cons:
Tight Parking
Fairly noisey location
No hot tub

For those sensitive to noise be advised: avoid room 201.
Room 201 is the corner room directly facing the corner of 1st and B streets. As the room is right on the corner, I'm guessing it's probably the room at Aggie Inn that is most susceptible to noise. Friday late afternoon/early evening will entail lots of stop-and-go traffic noise and
car radio noise (as cars queue up to leave town). The intersection of 1st and B streets seems to be on the routes of a lot of different buses as well. You will hear the stop-and-go noise of diesel bus engines during this Friday evening time period for 2-3 hours.
Once the Friday evening traffic noise of those leaving town dies down, be prepared for any live music that might be happening farther down B street (towards Central Park). This music may die down around 9 o'clock. Then things get a little quieter. Then The only thing that will really stand out is the occassional yelling of a drunk (or sober) college student. Though if you wear earplugs during the loudest times, the noise isn't that intolerable.
Note: Ear plugs can be found upon arrival in the room (near the soap and shampoo bottles).

Room Tip: avoid room 201 due to street noise exposure

That was my wife's suggestion when we decided to visit my son who has been working at UC-Davis for about a year. What a pleasant surprise! Total renovation, clean, pretty, and attentive service. We stayed in a "king cottage" at a remarkably decent rate.The location can't be beat. Inches from Downtown and remarkably close to the University. I hadn't been to the Aggie Inn since 2008. despite the fact that was a bit gray around the edges them, my family and I had spent a really nice and relaxing vacation weekend in Davis then, but every time I've been back for business, somebody at UCD put me at Hallmark Inn. So I figured that they had good reason to put me there. Hallmark ain't bad, but it's cookie-cutter and has a torturous parking garage. Very pleased to be back at the Aggie. The only thing standing between it and a Tripadvisor "5" is that the breakfast is typical American "spare fare"; but the coffee, granola, and yoghurt will fortify you for one of the many first-class breakfasts in downtown Davis. I suggest Cafe Bernardo, but that's another review...

Room Tip: "King cottage" is worth the price if you have a few visitors over to watch TV or hang out.

This is a no frills hotel. The rooms are spacious but a bit dated. The walls at thin! I could hear my neighbor coughing in the next room and his (judging by the voice it was he) telephone ringing. The amenities are bare bones. The coffee machine comes with one coffee pod (and a single decaf pod) so if you have a companion, plan on splitting your cup. The bathroom is cramped but adequate. There's a basic continental breakfast although I suggest that you wander down to the Black Bear Diner down the street, about two blocks away. The staff are courteous and there are apples and cookies at check in. Nice touch. The big value is the central location. Walk to downtown location with its village flair or to UC Davis. All in all not bad but not superior either.

We got put up here by UCal Davis so I can't complain too much, but it's only average. Getting to the room was a trip in itself, as we had to go up a stairway (no elevator) and then outside. The room itself was clean and pleasant, however, with a fridge and water provided. Good bed, and generally pretty quiet though right on a fairly busy street. There is a breakfast provided but don't expect much beyond cold cereal.

I stayed here on a recent trip to UC Davis. The Inn is close to campus, and a short walk from downtown Davis. The room was clean and neat, though the furniture was a bit beat-up. The desk staff were helpful. Breakfast was marginal, though there was lots of fresh fruit. The one downside is that the Inn is on a busy street. I realized on the second night that ear plugs were provided, and found sleep easier when I wore them.
