Clean comfortable rooms. Our TV was not working and the manager lady offered us another room. Breakfast the next morning was a nice treat to the kids (and us). Place is in a quiet neighborhood. Around 20 min walk to the Capitol.

The appearance of the building is somewhat worn and not accurately reflected in pictures. For the money, the rooms were ok, very clean, but somewhat worn ! If you are just passing through and looking for a place to sleep, this will do it. If you are looking for fancy, look elsewhere. No pool, no in-room coffee pot, and the elevator is not operational. That makes it difficult when your on the 3rd floor carrying 2 weeks worth of clothes.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The rooms were clean and the area has a few good priced restaurants close by. A laundromat across the street was also a big plus.

The value for this hotel is its biggest selling point - my room was one fourth of what the hotels near the convention center charged. Yeah-I'm cheap but I felt this hotel was more than adequate for the price.

It is currently 4:00am and I am writing this review from my room after what I can say without a doubt has been the worst night's sleep I have ever had in a hotel in my life. Last night when we got into our room, it seemed fairly decent........ but after attempting to sleep here, I can say it is far from that. We would have been more comfortable sleeping in our car.

The mattress feels like it's been around since the civil war. I'm not talking about a slightly worn out mattress. I mean that it has a HUGE sink hole in the middle. We both ended up in the middle fighting for space on a queen-sized bed.all night. Every time I would move towards the edge in an attempt to get comfortable, I'd inevitably roll quickly back down into the middle. In my desperation, I even considered sleeping on the floor, but seeing how often they change their mattresses, I don't even want to wonder how often they steam the carpet.

Although the heating unit fan does have "high" "low" and "auto" settings, they are all really "auto" so there is no way to keep the fan on to drown out the noises of downtown sacramento without having to constantly turn up the thermostat. You're forced to choose between roasting yourself out or listening to someone's very loud TV, and what sounded like someone dumping a crate of glass containers out of a third story window. I really hope I won't discover it was actually someone breaking my car windshield.

The only reason I am giving two stars instead of one is because the room is clean and doesn't stink.

If for some reason you find yourself staying here, test out the bed as soon as you get to your room, well before unpacking your suitcase or letting it get late. I wish I would have realized the mattress problems earlier on so I could have asked for another room.

Thank you for your comments we appreciate your review. We apologize for any inconvenience that you may have experienced while staying at our Inn. We review all of your comments and make changes when necessary. In 2010 we did a complete renovation of all of our guest rooms and everything was replaced including the bedding. Our new beds are all Serta plush pillow top mattresses. We are not totally sure why you would have this problem but again we apologize for your inconvenience.
