Renovation in progress and we got a bad room

Posted Sep 15, 2017
Pros: Breakfast was better than in other Best Western locations.
Cons: Modernize the rooms.
Location: It's close to Old Town and the Capitol.
We got a room close to the lobby and breakfast area where renovations are in progress -- probably for a few more weeks (09/13/2017). Next to the hotel is an abandoned lot; except for the huge post of a billboard right in front of our window. Inside the room there was a crack in the wall and the light switches for the bathroom and wash area are flipped. The highway is close, so expect some noise.

Good budget stay

Posted Sep 10, 2017
Pros: Price and location.
Cons: They're renovating now.
Location: It's a mile down the bike path to Old Town, so, close to city center and Raley Field.
This place has been going through a renovation this summer, but the rooms and staff are great and it's a quick walk to Old Town, the ballpark and Amtrak. There's a pool and cool Mexican restaurant right there.

we had a pleasant stay. The staff was great. I called in the morning to see if we could check in early because my son had just been discharged from surgery & we had nowhere to take him. The lady at the front desk was so helpful & got us into a room immediately. The beds are very comfortable. I liked having a private patio in the back. The breakfast that was included was decent & enough to fill our bellies. The carpet & shower were a little aged but overall everything was fine. we will be staying again when in Sac.

Pet-friendly room close call

Posted Aug 29, 2017 on Hotels
Remodeling construction was on going, Still staff was friendly and accommodating, even when we had to deal with a pet-friendly room that we did not request. We were unsure of pet remains in the room, but it was clean enough to not noticing it. Mistake by Hotels.com for not telling pet-friendly was a request feature in their booking process.

No pets please

Posted Aug 26, 2017 on Hotels
The hotel itself was good. Room super clean! Fridge cold. Only issue was the room next to us had a dog that whined and scratched at the door literally ALL NIGHT LONG! I Do not blame this on the hotel. It just tells me to never stay at a pet friendly hotel again. Hotel good for the price.

Thank you so much for taking the time and leaving us a review on Hotels.com. I am sorry about you being close to a pet room. We are very sorry as that is normally a quite area. I hope you will be staying with us again and we will not put you close to the pet area. Best Regards, Michael Brown General Manager

Somewhat Unpleasant Surprise

Posted Jul 30, 2017 on Hotels
It would have been nice to have been told in advance about the reconstruction in progress. I believe they are doing the best that they can, due to the construction constriction. My Handicapped needs were able to be met.

The reception clerk when we checked out was not pleasant. It seems like she was really bored with her job. Not once did she smile nor looked at me. The food attendant was very nice but they were missing food items such as yogurt, bacon and plain scrambled eggs. The bed is very comfy but the sofa bed was dusty when we pulled it out. The air conditioner is old and can not handle the hot weather outside. It took awhile to cool down the room.

Thank you so much for leaving a review on Expedia. I want to thank you for the kind words you left for the food attendant. I am very sorry that the front desk was not friendly. I am sorry there was food missing, as we carry the bacon, yogurt and the eggs. We just replaced air conditioner filters, and that seems to be working great to cool down the room. I hope you would be willing to give us another chance to show you this was a bad stay. Sincerely, Michael Brown General Manager
