I stayed one night there, I had a great time. hotel is located in a good place.Their room was spacious and clean I had a great and comfortable bed.Also, tube was acceptable.
There is no microwave in rooms.
the worst thing is their internet.
Break fast is Ok.

As a stopover on my trip further south, the Governor's Inn was excellent with pleasant staff, nice decor, and exercise room with quality TRUE equipment. The room rate was very reasonable for this hotel which I will definitely remember if my travel plans take me near Sacramento again.

Room Tip: Room on the east side, away from the I-5 side of the hotel would be quieter.

This hotel isn't much to look at from the outside, but is quite nice inside. The rooms are large, tastefully decorated, and very clean. The staff are friendly. The location is great for jumping in the car and getting onto the highway, but not good if you want to walk around (McDonalds and Dennys are the only things nearby).

A few complaints (and why they didn't get another star) - the continental breakfast was pretty lame, was served with cutlery and tableware straight from a prison ward, and was served in a room with Headline News on so loudly that conversation was impossible. The cage of parakeets in the front lobby was filthy (they should either keep it clean or not bother to have it). And my shower was either hot or cold but not in-between no matter how carefully I adjusted the control.

I stayed at this hotel because it is close to the Sacramento airport and I was flying out the next day. My car window was broken, my laptop and other items stolen. When I told the night clerk, his lack of concern was upsetting. I was told someone would call me to let me know if they found these items - I had to call them. I will never stay at this hotel again - not only due to lack of security, but the uncaring attitude towards their customer.

Room Tip: Pick an upstairs interior room if you are a woman traveling alone.

This hotel was very easy to find about 200 yards from the freeway. The welcome was good and the room better ( we had been en route for 20 hours). My only criticism would be that it was difficult to balance the shower temperature. The breakfast was particularly good. So often the breakfast room has only disposable plates and cutlery. Here there were real plates and cutlery. The coffee was good and 4 different types of Danish pastry showed some thought and care had gone into the service. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk from Old Sacramento along a pleasant riverside walkway/cycle path. I would have no reservation in staying here again

The staff were very friendly and prompt. The room was very large and nicely decorated . The only thing is that this hotel is a little far from shopping and restaurants. There is a McDonalds and a Dennys right infront of the hotel. They offer free WIFI which was fast and free breakfast which included make yourself waffles, bagels, cereal,yogurt, juice and coffee. I would definately stay here again !!!!

We were in Sacramento for both business and family. This was a great hotel and price couldn't be beat for the location. 1/2 mile from Old Sac, right off I-5, close to the airpot. We will definitely be back, thanks!
