“Not fancy, but comfortable”
Reviewed February 11, 2007

It was an extremely comfortable bed -- but that was about it.... and the staff was very helpful.

But the place feels a bit like it's out of the 60's.

We stayed in what was supposed to be a lakeside mini suite w/ fireplace. Per the manager (subesquent discussion), they consider a mini suite just a room with a fireplace - even though this room didn't have a real fireplace, just a heater made to look like one. 1 desk chair, 1 other chair in the far corner by the microwave - no sitting area or table - just a desk; that's not a mini suite to me. Ironing board and iron are actually in the room by the window so you get to look at them, along with the electric heater, as you lie in bed. View is of freeway, not lake. Manager said picture in the brochure (showing lake) is 10 years old, and they are in the process of clarifying their room descriptions. So make sure you know what your are getting for your money - ours was very overpriced. Room was clean, outside railing was very dirty. Had to move desk lamp to get a bedside table lamp.
Staff unconcerned.

What a great property located on the American River Parkway bike trail which is a 60+ mile loop around the American River. I booked a studio room and don't know what the previous review was referring too...the room was quite large with a FANTASTIC king size bed, sofa and brand new furniture!

If it weren't for my travel club's 50% rate, I would never have stayed here.

The staff was friendly, (except for the after midnight female receptionist who glared at us), and we got a quiet room as requested. However, this is not one of your slam dunk lodgings.

I've never been to Folsom, but I plan on returning (friends) and would probably not return to this Inn. The room is smallish, the carpets need replacing, and the prices on the menu are OK -- but only if your company is paying for it.

This hotel is probably the best in the vicinity. Some of the hotels in downtown Sacramento are probably nicer. However, if you want to stay in or near Folsom, the Lake Natoma Inn is a good option, I think.

The location is great. It's in the "historic downtown" of Folsom. One can easily walk to restaurants and shopping.

It's pretty good for a three-star property, I would say, but don't expect a luxury resort. (As far as I know, there isn't anything truly "luxury" anywhere in the Sacramento area.)

The employees are generally friendly, but I wouldn't call the service "polished."

If you're willing to spend the money, the larger suites are well worth it. They're about twice as large as a regular room, and they have wood-burning fireplaces.

Traveled for business and for the small amount of time I spend in a room, the price was great compared to the Mariott or Hilton. Free wireless in the rooms. Bar/restaurant on 1st floor.
