This is a great hotel! We stayed at the Comfort Inn down the street and was so unhappy with it that when we traveled back through Sacramento we decided to try the Best Western. MUCH BETTER HOTEL! Very polite and helpful desk staff. The hotel backs up to the River Parkway which is a great place to walk or bike. Very scenic and pleasant. The rooms were clean, comfortable and had a refrigerator and microwave. Well worth the price.

The rooms were clean & comfortable. The employees at the front desk provided excellent service & went out if their way to find a room to suit my needs. The area is kind of seedy but I didn't have any problems & it is very closets to the interstate & the downtown area.

Looking for a solid value that's a comfortable place to stay? BWSandman is the spot.
Located just off of I-5 at Richards Blvd/Jiboom exit, it's a short drive to Old Town Sacramento and the Capitol/Convention Center area.
Excellent continental breakfast, though kind of small/overcrowded room on a weekend that seemed totally booked. Parking lot also quite full/slightly confusing. Tough to beat make-your-own waffles, yogurt, fruit, cereal, pastries, coffee, juice, toast.
Room was spotless and comfortable with 2 queen beds. great mattresses and linens. Bathroom slightly small with door that did not lock.
Only problem was that rooms that face the freeway are LOUD in the morning with trucks zooming through. Double paned windows and sound-proof doors would be a great upgrade.

Room Tip: are there rooms that face the river? worth it.

I have a dog that is like a family member to me. The hotel staff was extremely nice about my visit with my doggie. They treated me very well with a very nice room for my husband and me and my dog, Duke. It was great service.

We stayed one night here and it was noisy because if the freeway. This hotel is not up to Best Western standards. Very outdated rooms which felt rundown. Room was pretty clean so we were thankful for that. Breakfast was in a tiny room but food was sufficient. Wifi was fine.
