“Clean and Convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

We stopped in this hotel on a recent roadtrip based upon other traveler reviews and it's proximity to the 5 Freeway. The hotel delivered a clean and quiet room. The location was perfect! Our dogs traveled with us and they accommodated our stay in a very clean and comfortable pet friendly room. Nice beds with duvet covers. Flat screen tv. Coffee and continental breakfast in the morning. Even waffle makers! I highly recommend this hotel if you're in the area.

Went to see Kings play at the arena a few miles away. no need to pay twice as much at airport hotels. Front desk gave me a back room, so no highway noise. Air freshener strong when I first entered my room. tile floors need to be washed. My socks were filty on the bottoms.

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.
