We went to this hotel kind of by mistake. There are two Best Westerns in Sacramento and the other was overbooked. They referred us to this one and it worked out great. Good room and bed. I would stay here anytime I am in the area.

We drove from Portland to Palm Desert and stayed overnight at this motel on our way down and on our way back. It is right off the freeway, and near the attractions of Sacramento. The staff were friendly and helpful, and our room was immaculate.

Stayed one night while attending a convention. Although the motel is an older two-story style with exterior rooms (no interior hallways), the rooms, though fairly small, have been updated and are clean, which is my number one requirement.

My room had a small desk, sofa, coffee table, large flat panel television, alarm clock, refrigerator and microwave, iron and ironing board and hairdryer. All (except the alarm clock with an alarm that didn't work) were in good condition and appeared fairly new. The only other non functioning item was a closet door that was off its track. The closet is very small. Lighting is excellent (no 40 watt bulbs hiding a dingy environment) and the HVAC system is quiet and works well.

The beds are comfortable and pillows even better. The bathtub and toilet are in a separate room from the vanity and sink though all are well integrated. Towels are decent and plentiful - way more than most hotels/motels.

Because the motel is near the freeway, there is residual noise though not excessive. I stayed on the second floor right next to the stairway (no elevator), so it was an effort to lug my luggage up two flights of stairs. Except for a late arrival who struggled with his luggage up the same stairs, I did not hear any of my neighbors even though I was directly above the breakfast room. Perhaps the rooms were soundproofed when they were remodeled.

The breakfast is better than average with fresh waffles, cereal, yogurt, bagels, danishes, juice, etc. An attendant keeps everything well stocked and the tables clean.

There are minimal restaurant options near the motel, but the Sandman is only a short drive from downtown Sacramento on the west side of Interstate 5. It's not luxury, but for the money, it is a good value, particularly if you have an AAA discount.

Room Tip: Choose a room toward the back to mute some of the freeway traffic noise.

Near Old Sacramento and the California State Railroad Museum. The price was low for Sacramento and the room was pleasant. Being adjacent to Interstate 5 there was traffic noise all night that would be annoying to light sleepers. I had a room near the front of the hotel on the ground floor. Perhaps the rear building would have been quieter. Breakfast was quite satisfactory, pretty much the average for Best Western.

Room Tip: I would try a second floor room in the rear building the next time.
