Hallmark Inn at UC Davis
Ranked #2 of 11 Hotels in Davis
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 22, 2013

The Hallmark Inn is unique to me because the management and staff focus on ensuring that you feel secure and at home. My two teenagers and I have stayed there monthly since 2006, when I returned from Europe to DC. Situated close to the historic train station (no, no noise in rooms) it has walking access to all the culture and restaurants of Davis. Food that adults and teenagers like in dozens of "local" restaurants and three movie theaters within 3 blocks. Amazing! . Extremely safe too (I have a 13 year old daughter). That's why UC Davis books so many visiting professors there. Me too, an old senior bureaucrat! Easy on and off Rte. 80 too, just a mile away, by In-and-Out Burgers. I wouldn't stay there, with so many options, if I couldn't strongly recommend it.

Room Tip: Just tell them what you want.

Quite pleased with the hotel, getting a bit worn out and there are alternatives in Davis so the hotel needs to up its game, staff great, facilities minimal, bar closes at 7pm but a few nice touches with complimentary cocktails in the evening. Near the station and constant train horns blowing so if a light sleeper this place is not for you. Overall a middle of the road experience so not to raise expectations.

I've always had a positive experience staying at the Hallmark Inn in Davis, CA. I have high standards when I stay overnight somewhere. The Hallmark Inn has never disappointed me when comes to the standards of hospitality and cleanliness. I look forward to my next visit.

Although there was ongoing renovation. The staff did all they could to make our stay pleasant. The bikes were great fun and breakfast was good. I hope they finish their work soon so the hotel can get back to normal

Very nice! Good rooms, clean, and very friendly staff. I use this hotel whenever I visit my daughter (professor at UCSD), and she has more than one side of the family visiting. The hotel is currently under renovation (Thanksgiving 2012), but it did not bother us at all. I love both the breakfast, and the reception at this hotel. High quality. Sorry to report that the breakfast will be changing to a cafe with public access, but it may work out fine. I will miss the personal attention. There is a fair amount of morning noise. You can hear the water running from others showers, the garbage trucks have made a crashing sound early in the morning, and of course in Davis the trains are running. They do not seem to run during the night, or I sleep better than usual, because they do not bother me, and I normally do not sleep all that well.

Room Tip: They have always placed us in great rooms without any specific requests, but you may consider asking...

On behalf of the team of the Hallmark Inn, thank you for staying with us during the visit to town this past Thanksgiving. It was nice to hear that the renovation did not cause you any concern as we are trying our best to minimize disruptions. We look forward to the change of our breakfast to being served in our new Cafe 110 as something that will pleasantly surprise our guests. As you may have experienced we are now are offering locally roasted Pedal Pepper Coffee and continue to enhance not only breakfast but lunch/dinner options with locally produced items. We look forward to the opportunity to share a new experience the next time you come to visit Davis. Sincerely- Marisa Schaffer

Davis, CA has a couple of nice hotels. I chose this one for the location and family has stayed here. Rooms was a nice size and clean. Bed was comfy. Breakfast had all the basics and very good coffee. Wifi was a little slow and choppy. Would use this hotel again.

On behalf of the team of the Hallmark Inn, thank you for making your overnight accommodations with us. I agree our location puts you right in the heart of Downtown Davis with all the restaurants and shops within walking or bicycling. Be sure ask about our complimentary bicycles as another way to get around while you are visiting in Davis. Looking forward to a future stay.

Pluses: The double room we had at the front of the hotel was very large. Free parking under the hotel or in back. Easy walk to restaurants and shops, and very close to UC Davis. The pool was small but the deck was spacious with a lovely mural. Reception was efficient and friendly.

Minuses: No sink outside the bathroom, so only one person can get ready at a time. From other reviews, it looks like the construction we saw outside our window in August continues. i wish I had known when I booked. Balconies are not private, some overlook pool or the busy street across from parking garage for movies. The TV is hung on wall with one of few outlets under it. It's too easy to bang your head on the TV. Strangely, the hook on bathroom door was only an inch from the top.

If we are in the area, we'll probably book again if construction is done.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from construction and for one with a balcony if that's important to you.
