“nice clean rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

This was a great experience, The hotel was very clean and the staff was great. Front desk was very polite and helpful. There was always someone at the front desk 24 hours. I really enjoyed the free continental breakfast that they offer. The prices were excelent compare to other big hotels around the area and the rooms are bigger. It is a nice place to rest and i felt very secure with the CHP across from it. I would defenitly will stay at this hotel again next time

Room Tip: I think any room will be a good one, I would go for the suites because they are affordable and with...

We stayed at this hotel on 27 April 2012. The vacilities were clean and well kept. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rates were very reasonable (Less than $80.00). Will use this facility again whenever we are in the area. Phil & Pat McLean

This is a "nicer than most" highway hotels, the room was quite, larger than many and quite clean. The only negative is that the front of the hotel is lit by very bright lights and while the window curtians do a good job of blocking the light a little still comes through. If you want a really dark room request a room on the back side of the hotel.

I went with my daughter and her family to a travel ball game in Elk Grove. This hotel is close to where we needed to be and was a comfortable, secure place. It is right across the street from a CHP office.
It was clean, the staff was very friendly and it has an elevator. That is a plus when equipment needs to be transported from car to room.

Room Tip: Perry's is just down the road and is a good place to eat. It is about 3 minutes away from the ho...

We have stayed at the Best Western a few times and just love it. There is a new manager Brenda that is nice and helpful. The place looks so much better. Brenda told me she has been changed a few thing like the chairs in the breakfast room,I really like that she added bis& gray to the breakfast. My husand and I alway have a good time. The front desk were nice, sweet and very helpful. BEST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!!!!

Beautiful building, clean rooms and most important great staff. Manage,r Brenda has a great staff and a beautiful facility that accommodated our long stay with our two Shelties.
Upon arriving Audra, the front desk person, was great helping us every way possible to make us comfortable without a reservation too! A big shout out to Brenda, Teri and Audra. Those are the only names I know so far but I am sure we will know all the staffs' name by the time we leave.
We will stay here whenever we come to Sacramento.

Stayed here for a night en route from So Cal to Southern Oregon. Given the selection of other nearby motels, we chose Best Western because of its location and the fact that it has indoor hallways. The neighborhood looked a little questionable, even though (or maybe because?) the sheriff's station is right across the street, so we opted not to stay at Motel 6 (out on the busy street) or the America's Best Inn (looked old and less secure).

First impression: the entry doors (both sets) were broken: didn't shut right, and didn't have the mechanism to hold them open, so getting luggage inside with three sleeping children was impossible.
Second impression: Although the lobby was tidy and fire burning in the fireplace was inviting, the ambiance was ruined by the smell of cigarette smoke, despite the presence of a no-smoking sign just inside the door.
Third impression: As I'm checking in, someone was walking through the downstairs hallways spraying air freshener from a can of Glade. Not good with three guests in the lobby waiting to check-in. In fact, kind of tacky.
Lastly, security: As I approached the door to my room, I noticed it was ajar. In fact, the door did not close by itself, a typical feature of hotel door rooms. After checking the room (including under the beds), I was satisfied it was safe. Hotel staff explained that housekeeping is supposed to check all doors before leaving the floor, but that still didn't make me feel secure, especially since a family member once entered a hotel room only to be surprised by an intruder in the room before she checked-in.

The other clientelle in the hotel looked a little shady frankly. I was put off by the guests strolling the hallways and eating continental breakfast in their pajamas. Overall, I would not recommend this hotel.
