First impression came from guy in office. He didn't get off the computer until 10 minutes after I walked in. Room wasn't ready, OK, so I left and came back later. Now a woman did talk to me, and told me that my request for a room at the "back" would not be quiet as there was a bar directly...

Absolutely do not bring your family to this hotel. Don't compromise safety for price. Security is a joke and the night we stayed shots were fired from a group of men fighting outside our room. The hotel had plenty of opportunity to respond or even try to defuse the situation before it got to the point of gun violence. One...

Central location with clean, no frills rooms that were spacious for the price. The prices were well below the market but decent quality. The staff was also helpful. The cleaning staff was also willing to go above and beyond when we had a minor issue.

This was okay. Clean enough. Not very comfortable. Basic. Close to Sutter's Fort if you like your history. Right next door to IHOP if you're supporting an expanding waist. Staff were friendly. Neighbourhood is a little sketchy but there is a security presence. Didn't use the pool because I'm a fairweather chap. No room visitors after 10:30. Yes mom, I'll...

We stayed overnight after driving to Sacramento to see a show, we arrived to find a clean, simple room with very basic accommodations in which we got ready before going out. We arrived back very late so didn't experience the noise that other reviewers have mentioned. The staff at the desk were polite and efficient, the room was tidy and...

Our non smoking room reeked of cigarettes. There is a night club on the corner of the property, in the parking lot. It was noisy and there were several fights. They did have on grounds security and cops patrolling the area. I wouldn't stay at this motel again.

I arrived there and asked for a no pets and no smoking room. I was told that all rooms suppose to be so. The first I checked was horrible. It smelled cigarets like you were in a night bar. The second one I tried smelled chlorine. I thought that it was OK, but then I realized that the chlorine smell...

We were denied a room because one person in our party had an expired identification. The fact that the staff was collecting and running our id's through the computer should have been the first warning sign. I did not trust my brief interaction with the staff and would not recommend it to anyone ever. I have stayed at many Hotel...
