Arden Acres Cottages
Reviewed July 29, 2012

We were looking for a small place that was affordable and would accomadate 2 dogs and 3 adults. They are extremely friendly...but, that couldn't overcome the fact that they put us in a two bedroom single wide trailer that was over 40 years old and was painted DARK BROWN during one of the worst heat waves in Sacramento. The outside temp hit 108F and the inside temp of the trailer hit 115F + !!! The entire trailer park lost power and it took over 24 hours before the place cooled down enough to stay in. There was also a gas leak. Ugh! And that was just the highlights of how terrible this place is.

We moved out and explained to Jackie and Bernice that we just couldn't stay. Our dogs were sick for two weeks. They acted nice about it and said they would refund the entire $1150 for three weeks rent they charged in advance. And then they only refunded $950 because they said the dogs went to the bathroom in the trailer.

Needless to say we will never stay with them again. The cost is as much or more than staying at a really nice hotel and way less to offer.

Room Tip: Don't let them put in a DARK trailer in the summer!!!!

We stayed at Arden Acres for two weeks while house hunting in July 2012. It had everything we needed (extremely comfortable bed, 2 TVs, cozy living room, dining room, kitchen, very clean bathroom) and was very private. Although the Arden Arcade area is not known for being the best neighborhood, Jackie patrols Arden Acres's gated property nightly, so it was very safe. One night I accidentally left all my car windows open over night and in the morning the car was untouched and totally fine. Also, there is a laundry area with a clothes line where I forgot to bring in my laundry until 9pm and my clothes too, were untouched.

The area is pretty convenient - it's only a short drive from everything and is a hop skip and a jump away from the state fair! (Don't miss the Taco place on Arden with fresh BBQ... soooo good and so cheap.)

Pet Friendly - We have cats that were welcome for a flat fee which was great.

Management is very kind and prompt to respond to any problems. Our toilet flusher thing broke and they fixed it immediately. Also they have a maid service that comes weekly to your cottage- they even did they dishes!

All in all this was a fantastic home base and we would highly recommend it for long stays.
We really felt welcome and at home in our little cottage.

Stayed for a few weeks and really enjoyed the cottages. Staff worked various schedules and addressed any concerns I had immediately. Housekeeping was a plus and it's a gated community.

Arden Acres has individual cottages which appear to be small mobiles converted into short and longer term rentals. Unit was IKEA furnished, no rugs, complete kitchen, full refrigerator and very quiet. It's close to main shopping areas but off the main roads. For travelers who like to prepare their meals, desire a more homelike setting at reasonable rates, this is a good accomodation.

Rented two cottages..each one unique, clean and well appointed. If you don't like this place, you probably should be in a standard hotel. However, if you enjoy charm, flowers and all the comforts of home, this is where you belong. My one bedroom, loft cottage had three TV's, Wi-Fi, a porch with a wicker rocking chair, a hide-a-bed in the living room and lots of storage. I loved it! Can't wait to go there, again.
