This Hotel deserves a 2 1/2 star when you factor in service. Let me start out by saying that this hotel has RUDE management, especially at the two restaurants on site. I found it extremely offensive and somewhat condescending how nearly all the salaried employees would talk down to us Guests, especially younger business professionals such as myself. Many of the hourly employees were friendly which is why I went 3 stars. I also wanted to say that Auto Club Diamonds and actual STARS are not the same thing. In short, let me tell you about my trip: Not a Real Lobby, the only entrance is through the Valet doors, no Formal Entrance, and it was a strange and unwelcoming rectangular shape which made it feel small and crunched. Booked online, no problem. Used the "E-Concierge", what a mistake! Asked for 3 things: A mini fridge, extra towels, and a Super Shuttle back to the airport. Got the shuttle, that was it. Upon check in, the lady had no idea how to run a credit card, as I had more than the credit available but claimed it was declined, so I gave her my debit card which she claimed was declined again..there was enough in there to stay for 3 months so WRONG answer. She finally got it to work and pointed to the elevators and said 9th floor, have a good stay. Next, I go up to the room, 1 bath robe but 2 people staying--no big deal, but no fridge (which I needed for New Year's Eve and booked a month and a half in advance) so I called the number on the card by the minibar and got a surely lady who said they may not have any left, I'll call you back if we don't. Then about 20 minutes later Maintenance brings one up and he was very friendly. I then rushed out to pick up my Guest also coming from out of town and just barely made it. We went to the Breakfast Buffet in the morning, and it was nice. It wasn't the best one I have ever been too-- but they had Cheesecake and Carrot Cake and they both were EXCELLENT, which honestly, did surprise me. The only bad part was an arrogant teenage server, and again, 2 managers who were very rude. I went to get change from the Male manager of Vines and he purposely stared dumbfounded at a computer screen and then decided to play host rather than get my change--which I was leaving as a tip to the drink servers (who are basically glorified bussers). He seemed to have such a bad attitude, so much so that I may write a letter about him. It was rude enough that even my Date said I should do something. Housekeeping ran late but she was the nicest person that I met at the hotel during my stay. I went down for a couple of drinks on my last night and a Burger at Dawson's.....condescending attitude by a Female manager, everything she said to me was so fake and labored that I rather she said nothing to me at all. I thought perhaps since so many people at this hotel acted the same way, that just maybe they were trained to talk down to people? On checkout morning, I had an hour to kill so decided to cash in a breakfast voucher the front desk gave me that I forgot to use....evidently, the restaurant stops serving breakfast when it wants to..I didn't want much so I got a slice of carrot cake a la cart, it was bigger than the buffet one, well presented too...but not half as good, and I had to pay for it too, but I figured that. The baggage guys were also very nice. So overall, I would stay here again if they demonstrated COMPETENCE. It was by far, hit and miss. They need new management and to retrain hourly employees...just like Disneyland :P

We have stayed here many times and the rooms are very clean and nice. They have refrigerators and microwaves. It's very close to the freeway and easy one and off. There's a couple close restaurants and McDonald's. The owners are always friendly and very nice. It's very family oriented and most of all SAFE. It's quiet and the housekeepers do a good job. They monitor the grounds and keep away all undesirables who like to party, make noise, and disrupt everyone! If you enjoy nature, there's Discovery Park just across the street where you can enjoy the nearby rivers, or walk to Old Town Sacramento and shop! Its really hard to find a motel that's very reasonably priced and has all those perks listed above, but this one is! We recommend it!
Stayed one night at this hotel with my son. We were attending the Car Show at Cal Expo nearby. We needed an ADA room, and got one that was absolutely perfect! There was no shower chair, but when I called the front desk, they brought us one right away! The staff was very helpful and friendly - The room was great - and the free breakfast was delicious! Only one drawback, and I know it's something that the hotel can't control - numerous times during the night a train came by, tooting it's horn what seemed like excessively. A good night's sleep (in a very comfortable bed) would have made it a perfect experience - next time, we'll bring ear plugs!
Had to come to Sacramento for a family emergency. I had pre booked a room at the extended stay but when I got there they had somehow screwed up the reservation and I had no hotel for 6 people after a 6 hour drive . I hAd stayed at the governors inn previously and it was ok but nothing special so I thought of them as they were right down the street. The night clerk answered the phone at 1 am and was very nice and even have us a great rate since it was already in the am. The place is really nice after the renovation. The service was nice and it was super quite. Thanks.
This place was beautiful and romantic. Reminds me of a beautiful place in Monterrey. My wife and I live here in town and we definitely felt like we were out of town. Kyle took care of my last minutes reservation and placed in The Refresh Room. Everything was beautiful and romantic. The settings and the Decor of this Inn was breath taking and thhe pricing was great. Highly recommended and we will be back. A true definition of home away from home. Thank you
We have been down to stay at the Delta King a few times now. It is a wonderful, romantic place to stay and dine. From the front desk, to the Pilot House, the service is exceptional! If you live close, take the short drive down and stay a night or two and if you are coming from far away, what a wonderful place to stay and shop. Please don't miss the opportunity to enjoy yourselves!
this place has been around since I was a teen. And it shows it. Some of the upkeep needs keepingup but the rooms are VERY large and contain all you need for a stay; except that the pool is usually out of business-not good in the Sacramento summer but who care in the winter. The restaurant and entertainment is very good. And it area is quiet and convenient to most everything.
This Fairfield is quiet especially given the fact that they are in close proximity to the freeway. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is extremely friendly. Our only concern was seeing a homeless man in the brush which was in the far corner of the parking lot. It looked like he was attending to a cat and looked suspicious.
Make sure you ask up front how long you can stay in the room you get. You can still extend longer but without notice your room can be given to someone who reserves it. Unless you pay ahead the total for exact length of time you plan to stay in your room, motel won't guarantee you can remain in the same one as long as you need to.
Clean and well maintained within walking distance of the Sacramento Convention Center, major agency HQ's, and many fine restaurants. The exterior and surroundings are nothing special. The room is pretty bare bones, but is clean, safe, and relatively quiet. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. A very good bargain.
