"The motel was close to the freeway, so it was noisy. OK otherwise.2021-08-30"
"I was disappointed with my stay at this hotel. We arrived at 11 PM and had to ring a bell on the side of the building and talk through a bullet-proof glass window to the employee inside. Not a great way to start. There was a sign by the elevator that it wasn't reliable due to electrical issues, so we carried our luggage up the stairs to our 3rd floor room. Our room smelled like chlorine; the fence below had barbed wire and razor wire. Not reassuring. The beds were hard, and the pillows were flat. The AC was loud. Cheap lobby; no freebies except a coffee thermos. The staff didn't speak English well. Barely a place to sleep.2016-08-25"
"I liked the security in the parking lot at night, but shady-looking people were outside smoking all night. Pay more and stay at another hotel.2015-09-22"
"Basic hotel room and amenities. I woke to find a bug on the bedsheet.2015-09-19"
"Close to Sacramento State. Good hotel for the price. Our non-smoking room smelled like smoke, but it was comfortable and clean. Other guests were pretty loud at night.

"The hotel was nice and clean, and close to the hospital. Nice room with comfortable beds, a fridge, and a microwave. I had to request a hair dryer, and it was brought to the room. No food delivery information provided. Due to an upcoming surgery, the front desk staff let us check out late. All the employees wore masks, but the bistro workers didn't. Service at the bistro was slow, and the food was expensive.2020-08-12"

"There were 5 of us in the room, but only enough supplies for 2. No linens on the spare bed, and not enough pillows provided. The bedsheets were rough and uncomfortable. No batteries in the TV remote control, and the hotel staff refused to bring us any. Don't stay here.2017-10-24"
"The 1st hotel room was stuffy and had an odor; I was moved to a 1st floor room in the farthest building from the lobby, which made me nervous. I saw several homeless people by the vacant building across from mine. On a positive note, the bed was somewhat comfortable, the shower was clean, and there was plenty of hot water.2016-10-29"
"We had a pleasant stay. The room was spacious and clean. From check-in to checkout, the staff was helpful and professional.

"Close to shops and restaurants. The hotel room was nice and clean, but needed updating. I loved the eco-friendly efforts. Our room wasn't serviced the 2nd day; it took 3 calls to get a housekeeper to come and clean it. Friendly staff. My husband left an expensive item behind, and the staff found it and called us so we could pick it up. Some items ran out early at breakfast.2015-09-09"
"The people in the room above mine were loud, and the hotel clerks weren't at all friendly. All the creamers at breakfast were sweet, and when I asked if there were alternatives, the attendant was rude and said no sharply. Not a good experience.2019-03-07"

I was charged for parking even though I didn't bring a car, but the charge was quickly removed.2016-10-09"
"We arrived at 4 PM, but were given a room that hadn't been serviced. We were given another room, but it wasn't ready, either. The 3rd room was ready and was nice. There was sketchy activity going on at the back side of the motel. Check for better options.2021-09-20"

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
