“Close to everything.”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Really great location within walking distance to the Capital, Convention center, and many restaurants. Rooms are reasonably updated and very clean. Comfortable beds and my room had a microwave and fridge. Free breakfast is great and is till 9:30 which is late by hotel standards. The only thing I would needs improving is that the AC made a loud thud noise every time it turned off. Not enough to waken you at night but during the day it can be annoying.

This is an older hotel but it was clean and the room was a nice size. The front desk was helpful. We had no problems and would stay here again. The location was great...eating places are within walking distance, which is what we did.

As soon as I walked in the room, it was like walking into a room full of musky moldy old room that hasnt been aired out in months. I opened the window and turned the air condition on to attempt to clean out the smell of the musky odor. I was sneezing and my nose was running until I left the hotel.

The bathroom is like a flashback to the 90's and was dirty and outdated. This hotel needs a major reno. The location was perfect for my work and the breakfast was not healthy by any means.

I will be running back to the Hyatt accross the street from the capitol when I visit Sacramento.

I am truly sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us and found the room unsatisfactory. I assure you our rooms are not moldy or dirty. Please feel free to contact the hotel and ask for the General Manager to discuss this further.

This hotel is the best kept secret in Sacramento. By far one of the best hotel values I have ever come across. I try to stay here every time I'm in Sacramento on business. It doesn't look fancy from the outside but the lobby, rooms, hallways and breakfast room are very nice and new. The rooms are sparkling clean. You can't beat the downtown location..restraunts, bars and a Starbucks are near by. The service at the front desk is world class. Kudos to the staff and management for what I consider one of the best businesspersons hotel in California.

Average quality hotel. Definitely, its downtown location is an advantage. Rooms could be cleaner and less outdated. Although breakfest was influded, it was not easy to find something to eat which was not greasy; furthermore, I've got bored being offered exactly the same food each of my 5 days there. Some of the staff were friendly, but some not. Additionally, they have charged my credit card twice!

Room Tip: Take electricity adapters with you if from outside US.

This was a great find in terms of value. It is walking distance to convention center and all the state office buildings and Capitol. Staff was very friendly. The room was clean and ample space for 1 or 2 (I had a single King bed). Internet connection was strong and fast enough so I could attend a webex session without any audio/video feed problems. The complimentary breakfast was actually pretty good offering a variety of foods, fruits, yogurts, cereals, etc. They also have a reasonable fitness area with treadmill, etc. The one ding I would give this hotel is their lack of a secured area for checked bags. I arrived very early and they couldn't get me in a room right away (they tried) so they said I could leave my bags in a open area next to the front desk and no claim check was "needed". I left my suitcase but took my electronics because I wasn't comfortable with that set-up. All in all this is a good value, clean hotel and I would stay here again.

Stayed here on a whim to take part in some St. Pats day celebrations. Made the res while sitting in the parking lot. Holiday Inn central reservations wanted 175.00 A call to the hotel directly got us 129.00. Clean, a huge breakfast room, good selection, gross powdered eggs like every mid range hotel. Fridge in the room. Very friendly desk clerks. Easy walk to convention center and gov. mansion, and bar/restaurants. Had a drink at a place called the Porch. Would definately eat there sometime. Surrounded by 3 motels, an econo lodge and 2 indy's. They appeared sub par but prob costs much less.
