“Great place to stay - best value for the money!!!”
Reviewed June 13, 2010

We had originally planned to go to Stateline, NV, but we couldn't go east on Highway 50 as it was snowing. So, we decided to go to Jackson, CA enroute to Yosemite. What a great surprise this place was. The price was more than reasonable when you consider breakfast at Denny's (next door) was included in the price. The large comfortable room included a fireplace which we used as it was very cold outdoors and it was very romantic. The room had everything you could think of, including enough space in the bathroom for my cosmetics to be laid out for the next morning, a hairdryer, free wi-fi, great shower, etc. and it was quiet. A few nights later we more more than twice as much for a "fancy" resort hotel near Yosemite and got none of those advantages, plus they wanted to charge $10 to use their wi-fi! The Amador Inn was a far better value for money!!!

My husband stayed at this hotel for 1 night; the accomodations were
acceptable, the price was not. I am outraged by the $129.95 he was
charged. My husband was travelling to Reno with our 12 yr old - he was
exhausted when he arrived. He called me from the rm and said the rate
was $99.... I asked if he had remembered to request a AAA discount - he
said "no", but that he would in the a.m.; I expected the final rate to
be ~ $85; high but okay. After he returned from the trip, I found the
receipt (!). I called the 1-800 number for BW and was told to go through
the hotel. I did and spoke with a front desk person then, a higher up. The manager herself never did call me as requested, but had an employee call to say that there
was nothing they could do whereas my husband had initialed the invoice (huh?). Let me tell ya, they left some serious money on the table if that is there only criteria. My husband would have initialed an invoice for $1,000! In conclusion, I will say that I do not expect something for nothing, but $129 for Jackson, CA is OUTRAGEOUS and leaves me feeing taken advantage of. Not a good feeling after staying at a national chain were you expect some value. We will stay elsewhere from now on.

Stayed 1 night. Had a large clean room with a comfortable bed. We asked for a quiet room and were given one in block C at the back. It was very quiet away from the road and even had its own patio with table and chairs. Hot breakfast is at Dennys next door to the motel. Bit disappointing - there was porridge but no cereals or waffles. Overall a very good value motel.

We stayed here one night while driving up through Gold Country to Lassen National Park. This hotel did NOT meet the minimum expectations for a Best Western. The room furnishings were very outdated (and the room smelled funny), the front desk staff was sub-par, and the "free hot breakfast at Dennys" they advertise on their website is a side room off the Dennys next door, where they have a few warming dishes filled with food that looked like leftovers from people who had breakfast in the restaurant. Don't waste your money, keep on driving.

The rooms in this hotel are nothing like the website. They are flthy and hot. The smell of stale cigarette smoke (years of it) premeate the furniture, bed, and even the lobby when you walk in. The "dumpster" for the hotel consists of a pick up truck parked in the parking lot in front of the pool and smells all day full of garbage. The rooms are filthy. Being one of the few hotels left that allow and encourage smoking, the smoking rooms are not even in a seperate building, they are dispersed throughout the hotel so the smell of smoke fills all hallways and rooms on both floors. The hotel sits right on Hwy. 49 and Hwy. 88 so the window units suck in massive amounts of carbon monixide and pump it into your room (It does not blow cool air either) and outside your door , smoke from other rooms (no matter where your room is) comes in from the hallways. The rooms are very dirty. The counter tops in the bathroom are black with dirt and filth. The bathtub and toilet looked to have never been cleaned. The whole hotel smells like garbage and smoke. The carpets are filthy and the furniture is soiled and wreaks of years of cigarette smoke even in the non smoking rooms. The owner obviously does not want to spend the money to maintain the property and does not care about the safety and comfort of the guests, only about getting the money. I will not even go into detail about the "fitness room". It has two pieces of equipment in a very dirty room right near smoking rooms so if you like working out in cigarette smoke it might work except for the filth. There is a small room with one coin washer and one coin dryer right in the fitness room that serves the whole hotel. The washer had something undiscribable in it. I can't imagine someone washing their laundry in it. This is the worst hotel you can imagine.
It is a shame that this is a privately owned Best Western as it is a very poor reflection on the Best Western chain as a whole. If you plan to spend the night here, plan on a hot stay in a filthy, dirty place full of smoke and in vast disrepair with very poor customer service. You would be safer and more comfortable spending the night in your car.

If you're looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the Jackson area The Best Western Amador is your best bet. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is helpful and pleasant, especially KC at the front desk. Any cons are trivial in comparison to the pros. The only real complaint our group had was the free breakfast is from Denny's across the street but they are the pickiest of eaters.
