“My second stay.”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

I can't understand why the Governors Inn has not upgrade it's toilets. The new toilets are higher - to accommodate older guests - and flush with only 1.5 gallons or less - and they flush more efficiently! Your toilets are water hogs and are too antiquated (low) for older guests. I thought California was so water-conscience!!!! Otherwise, the bed was comfy, the continental breakfast refreshing; the staff superior! It's a great place to stay - convenient to the freeway, and close to downtown.

Dear Manfred L,

Thank you very much for staying with us again. We so much appreciate and value our repeat guests. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We have recently undergone a major renovation and made many upgrades including the beads and TVs. Although we have yet to address the toilets, that is something that will be talking about and appreciate you mentioning it to us. We look forward to your return visits.

I booked my stay on Hotwire just looking for a cheap, but clean place to stay in and out of town. It was much better than I expected. I got a good deal on Hotwire and only paid about $65/night. The place was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. Not a romantic getaway location, but if you're travelling alone or for business it's just fine.

I always stay at the Governor's Inn in Sacramento when traveling to California from my home in Oregon. I stay there at least 4 times a year and am always drawn back. The quality is great, the accomodations are comfortable, atmosphere is wonderful. I stayed there 2 times this past week (going and returning from Portland to LA). I like that you can always count on the accomodations being comfortable, clean and quiet. The rates are good and restaurants are close by. I will stay at no other place in Sacramento.

We only were spending a night and wanted a suite. I thought their price was a little high given the quality of the room. Upon entering our room the smell was musty and hot and the once we turned on the air we did see a little improvement. This is handy to the freeway and the airport which was helpful. The exterior noise was a small issue. The bedding was very good and was appreciated. The bathroom was clean but very, very small. Overall, OK but not great.

Pleasantly surprised at the appearance, comfort, and quality of service considering the price--about a $100. 10 minutes by car to airport or downtown. Comfortable room with desk, frig, armchair. Vanity separate from shower and toilet. Quiet. Nice breakfast with an efficient attendant--Denny's across the street if you require eggs, etc. Friendly staff.

Very clean, modern, new features like carpet, paint, bedding. Lobby was also very clean and comfortable. I appreciated the fast wifi. Free shuttle to and from airport was timely and convenient. Walking distance to restaurants made having a car unnecessary. All around great accommodation at an affordable price.

First time stayed here while in Sacramento, CA. Didn't know what to expect but had very good reviews on trip advisor and price was $75 on www.booking.com
Really, what can you usually expect for $75 in a big city....well, this is the best hotel for the money in a long, long time.
The rooms was very big and bed and everything in the room very, very comfortable.
Hotel was spotless and clean everywhere.
Breakfast was standard but every other aspect of the hotel was outstanding.
As long as the price remains around the same, this will be the hotel of my choice in future visits to Sacramento. I would be surprised if the price and comfort can be beaten anywhere in the Sacramento area. Like a 5 star hotel at 2/3 star rate.
