We stayed at The Governors Inn for 6 nights of an 8 day vacation in California, 2 three night stays separated by a trip to Los Angeles. I picked the hotel off of Internet reviews that were largely favorable, but was a little concerned about reviews that suggested that the hotel was in a bad neighborhood. However, it was located in a convenient spot for everything we were doing.
The Governors Inn was delightful. The staff was uniformly friendly and well-informed. Our rooms changed from the first stay to the second, but were uniformly clean, well appointed and comfortable. Although only a block off of I-5, we had virtually no traffic noise, even when we took a 2 hour nap in the afternoon of our arrival to overcome jet lag.
The Inn was a convenient drive to the airport, downtown and Mid-town and was a 10 minute drive to the McClellan business park where our daughter worked. There is a McDonalds, a Denny's and a very nice steak and seafood restaurant within a block (Grill Masters). The latter restaurant gave us a 10% discount upon hearing that we were Governors Inn guests.
The Inn is located in a light-industrial and commercial neighborhood, which quiets down after the work day both from a noise and from a traffic standpoint. There is a small, somewhat seedy-looking neighborhood behind the hotel, but it is separated by a privacy wall which surrounds the hotel. We didn't even know it was there until our GPS took us through it to go downtown on one occasion. That may have contributed to some reviewers being a little uncomfortable. If one understands that this is not a suburban hotel, but, rather, an urban hotel in a commercial neighborhood, it suddenly becomes a great choice.
All in all, we were very happy with the choice, the price, the conditions and the value which was outstanding. If we have reason to visit Sacramento again, we will absolutely stay at The Governors Inn again.
