“Relaxation CAN be found in the most unlikely places.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Last night I stayed at the Red Lion Inn in Rancho Cordova, Sacromento. Considering we were not basking in the sun on the white sand beaches of Hawaii or taking in the beauty of skiing Aspen the Rocky's I enjoyed the las 2 days at the humble Red Lion Inn at Rancho Cordova in Sacromento as much as any of the formentioned paradise like destionations that I have been lucky enough to stay at in the past. I wound up sipping coffee with Christina who was working the front desk at 5:00 a.m. while she helped me finish my laundry and she (quite honestly, listened to me bable on and on about my troubles). This reminded me that it always boils down to the staff that make or break a hotel. You can be in the most beautiful place on the planet, but if you are arguing with the valet guy about where he parked your car you are not enjoying yourself. Another pleasureable experience was every morning not only was the complimentary breakfast out of this world, but Francine the staff member in charge of the line was very personal and a joy to talk to. After the first day she remembered my waffle ordere and at first site would have it on the griddle heating up, only to wait for the next guest to come around the corner and she would remember their name and waffle order as well..... I was impressive! It always boils down to the human touch and that touch can feel like the very soft tip of your finger or the cracking knuckle of a fist to your face. The human touch is what made my experience at the Red Lion Inn, at Rancho Cordova to be one of my most relaxing in recent memory!!!!!! Thank you Christina and Fracine you made my trip!!!!!

Sincerely,

Mark Spitsen

First I was a bit disgruntle because my work forced me to stay here. Then upon my first stay I was very surprise I had previously stayed at this hotel back in 2008. I was not impressed with the last brand I recognized Red Lion and they have a good reputation so there was some hope. Hotel was very clean, nice, and the staff was amazing. I travel a lot stay in hotels once or twice a month, I have had horrible experiences with high end hotel chains because of rude and snobby staff but Carol and Kristina always greeted me with a smile and a greeting morning or night regardless what time it was. Service like this is what makes our country great, honest good people working hard to make a living. As an American Soldier I am proud to see my people have hope and enthusiasm to florsih and grow with pride, humbleness, and honor.

Room Tip: Book early to get the third floor it offers more privacy.

This hotel offers great value with room quality equal to the nearby and much pricier Courtyard and Hyatt properties. The staff is great with Frances greeting you with a smile and wonderful complimentary breakfast. And in the evening, Carol is there to give you any assistance necessary to make you stay more enjoyable.
The location is very convenient right off of Highway 50 offering easy access to downtown SAC and Folsom.. GIve it a try, you will not be disappointed and splurge for one of the interior King rooms.

For the price, it's a very good value. Very clean. Lots of choice in the breakfast. Francine was very friendly and helpful in the breakfast area, keeping it very clean. Updated rooms and baths look good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an interior entry. I think those are on the upper floors.

This is a great small hotel. It was clean, quiet and the people especially Francine for the free breakfast, very friendly folks. If you need to stay in the Rancho Cordova area and are on a budget this is a safe bet and they are renovating so that is plus once finished. The renovations did not interfere with my stay in anyway.
