Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

We stayed for 6 nights. The price was great. The check in went very well. Pang was very welcoming. We asked for a room closer to an exit. No problem. The staff is very friendly yet professional. The rooms are large. We had two queen beds. The room was very clean. The beds were comfy. The sink area is large. The closet is small, but do you really need that large a closet? It's just a shower and toilet for the other part. Sort of small. Because of disability, we asked to change to the handicapped suite. No problem. They moved us. This was also clean and comfy. It was a king size bed and couch that made a bed. This bathroom was very large. It worked out very well. The pool is cool. It doesn't get much sun but very refreshing when the temperature is close to 100! The breakfast is standard continental. I also loved that there were real glasses and mugs in the room. The breakfast has real plates and silverware. Very nice and green. I would recommend it and will stay there again. It was near the highway but not loud. One exit from Old Sacramento. It was perfect for us. It's not a five star hotel, however it's five star in its class!

We were VERY surprised to find this little gem! We needed an overnight spot in Sacramento as part of a California road trip, and had been staying at Best Westerns all along the way. We found this hotel on a general search of prices/hotels, and we pleased to see great reviews on a well-priced hotel. It was even more than we expected! Beautiful lobby and public spaces, and the room was really gorgeous, very large, and had a sofa (most hotels give you one chair). There was a fridge, microwave and coffee pot in the room. We used a AAA discount and paid a total of $80 for the night, which was amazing for a real hotel (as opposed to a motor lodge) with such beautiful rooms and so many amenities. A continental breakfast was included. The breakfast area was very large (no fighting for tables), and had decent variety, however, waffles were the only hot food (unless you count instant oatmeal). Would have been nice to have a hot protein (eggs, sausage, etc), but for $80, we can't complain about that! Generous supply of coffee for filling the road mugs, and we were on our way. VERY convenient to I-5, but you don't hear the road noise at all.

It has a very convenient location, just off the highway, a nice and unexpected surprise. It was a great value for the monthly rate, very clean, very comfortable beds, decent breakfast (not too many options for gluten free diets). The hotel staff also recommended a great pizza restaurant and it made it a great overnight stay, as we were travelling back home.

Reserved this through priceline and the woman at check-in seemed to resent this and placed us in a room above McDonalds entry lights. When the lights were questioned, we were changed to a room later in the day which was much more dated in appearance. We were to find out that the air conditioner besides being noisy could not bring the temperature down to below 80 deg. Heat wave did not help, but lead to a sleepless night. The next morning staff was much more accommodating, but by then we were eager to leave.

From the outside you wouldn't expect what's inside. The lobby is large and well decorated, with parakeets in a cage. Great sofas to sit on and comfortable chairs. The rooms were very large! The bathroom had a stall shower, a nice surprise for me since I'm tired of climbing over tubs to take a shower. The continental breakfast was also a little more upscale as they had gourmet bagels and croissants. This was a great place to stay, and last minute deals on Expedia, $67 a night, $89 if you just walk in the door, a bargain for such a nice room.

Dear OfficerLisa,
Thank you for staying with us! Glad you found everything met your expectations. Typically we offer a variety of fruit and not sure why we had only apples out this day. I will check on this. We hope to see you back again.

Very comfortable place to stay if you have a car. Breakfast only adequate, but there's a Denny's right across the street. Close to freeway and close to town via side streets too. All in all, good value.

Room Tip: Rooms on 3rd floor quiet

Dear sharlatra,

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Everything as you mentioned is close by and we are among the few hotels that do not charge for parking. The going rate for an overnight car at a downtown hotel is about $20 a night. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you back soon.
