“Great Location - Horrible Parking”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

Right across the street from UCD Med Center, very nice rooms & breakfast. I rated it poor because of the parking (or lack of ) situation. Only 17 spots in this horrible tight basement garage. If you have a mid-size to large car, SUV, or truck don't even attempt the super tight ramp. If you get down without scraping both sides of your vehicle, the spots are tiny with little room to maneuver or turn around to try to exit up the same narrow ramp. Overflow parking is provided one block away in the hospital parking garage. Don't know how the city (un)planners approved of such a thing. Stayed one night then moved over to the Courtyard by Marriott that has plenty of parking.

Dear Robert,
I would like to thank you for commenting on your stay. I am sorry you had issues with the parking. We do our best to accommodate each guest vehicle. Guest with large vehicles who are concerned about a narrow spot we recommend the alternative parking. Since our parking is limited parking is first come first serve. And although it is not ideal we have arranged for additional parking spots for our guests at Shriners Hospital across the street. We are also are working on obtaining some street parking spots from the city for the near future.
We do thank you for staying with us. If I may assist you further please call me 916-455-4000.
Thank you,

Front Desk Manager

The employees were superb - very helpful. Great options for breakfast.

Room Tip: I was happy to have a room in the back - not facing Stockton Blvd.

The hotel was ok but if you have other than a compact car don't stay here. The parking is below ground and totally unacceptable. Two very tight turns still downward incline, Garage area is full of pillars that make turning exceptionally difficult. I now have a crease on right rear fender. No parking at street level. To get out the desk clerk had to come out to guide us each step of the way. No restaurants within reasonable walking distance.

Hello, and thank you for your candid comments. We are this week beginning the process of removing most of the center wall on the garage ramp. This will vastly improve access into and out of the garage. It will take the better part of a month to complete the project, but the garage should be much more manageable once it's done.

We would love another chance to serve you in the future.

Best regards,

Matthew Silver

Large and clean rooms. I was staying to be close to the UCD hospital.
The construction across the road was noisy particularly from about 3am!! I found similar in San Francisco - is this a Californian thing - perhaps the locals sleep so deeply as not to be disturbed - an alternative explanation is that the air conditioning is so loud it drowns the noise out.
My other complaint is that my visits to the fitness room were once interrupted with a complaint that the tv and the treadmill were too loud for the other guests-if you have a fitness room either keep it away from the bedrooms, have a volume max for the guests or a headphone system, decent insulation or don't keep it open late-said visit was at 8.30pm.

Hello, and thank you for your review of your visit with us.

Your comments about the construction noise are certainly understandable. Fortunately, the construction project (a large parking structure going up across the street at UC Davis Med Center) is almost complete.

The fitness room location is an issue we are aware of, and we are working on a plan to relocate that to a different area of the hotel.

Again, thank you for your candor and we look forward to your next visit when you are in Sacramento.

Best regards,

What a nice hotel. The manager was so helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was included - not a lot of variety but sufficient. The rooms were lovely, spacious and bright. No connecting rooms but we had 2 side by side which was fine.

As others have mentioned, the parking is a problem, but the manager mentioned they had another lot that we could have used. Fortunately, my sister was driving and by the end of our stay was quite the expert at negotiating the turns.

I even received an email after our stay wishing us a good trip to Disney - which was our next stop. Nice gesture.

If we need to go back for another medical appointment, I would stay here again.

My husband went to Sacramento for work & I tagged along for fun. This hotel was a great location for my husband's work & easy for me to get on the highway to travel! the hotel was clean & comfy, but parking was tight! they had about 15 spots available & the lot was small! a few times we had to park in the UC Davis parking lot since they had an agreement w/ them & it was included you just needed a ticket & to verify who you were via telecom @ the parking garage. hotel was nice but parking could have been better

Hello, thank you for your candor regarding what you liked about the hotel and what could be improved. Our parking is tight, and we are working with the City now to make some modifications to our garage which should make things easier to navigate.

We would certainly like the opportunity to serve you again in the future should your travels take you to Sacramento.
