Hallmark Inn at UC Davis
Ranked #2 of 11 Hotels in Davis
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 August 2014

I really enjoyed the Hallmark Inn! My husband, son and I stayed in Davis for a big soccer tournament. The rooms were very nice and very comfortable beds! The only drawback was we did not feel that there were enough power outlets for our many electronic devices!! My son and his soccer friends really enjoyed the pool however they did not stay in that long because it was not heated. We certainly understand because it is 90 plus degrees in the summer! My son got his first bee sting at the pool and your staff was very accommodating to him and they got a first aid kit right away and he was feeling better in 5 minutes and went back to swim! I do have a suggestion for the pool area though is to have bee traps hanging around the pool because there were several bees! My family really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast in Cafe 110 however my husband lost his coupon card and I went to the front desk and the staff told me that they would not replace and said are you sure he does not have it and it is more our loss because it had the $8.50 cash value. I feel that items can get misplaced and that you should have another system of tracking the $8.50 value per person per day in the event somebody does lose the coupon card! We really enjoyed the complimentary evening cocktail for the two nights that we stayed! We will definite stay at the Hallmark Inn again when we are at our next soccer tourney again!

Thank you for sharing your experience at the Hallmark Inn at UC Davis. I am glad your family enjoyed our location, beds, pool and how the staff handled the unfortunate bee sting. We are looking into alternatives to try to keep the bee's from joining in and hampering the festivities. I apologize that the loss of the breakfast card was not handled in a more delicate way and we have spoken with our Front Desk team to come up with a better remedy should this occur again. We look forward to the opportunity of your next visit at hallmarkinn.com Sincerely-Marisa Schaffer

Looked at several hotels online to visit the University with my college bound daughter scouting out schools and the hotel was a pleasant surprise. The hotel is in the heart of the community and a mere few blocks away from the University. The lobby was clean, vibrant, fresh, airy and comfortable. Driving to Davis was horrendous so we checked in after 8pm, leaving just a few minutes of daylight. The Davis area was inviting and the hotel was welcoming. Just having a 1 night stay, we checked in and had a room on the 1st floor. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable and with 100 degree weather, the a/c worked perfectly. The hotel provides you with a 10% discount to the ice cream eatery right next door (and their ice cream sandwiches were amazing by the way); also you received up to $8.50 pp on breakfast next door. We took advantage of the pool area for a short while but we walked around the area, not once, but twice, to soak up all that we could of the small downtown area. My daughter and I had a great time and great stay. If she's accepted at the school, we would choose to stay at the Hallmark again. The price was right and the hotel had alot to offer. You simply can't lose.

On behalf of the entire team, Thank You, for sharing your wonderful comments regarding your recent stay at the Hallmark Inn at UC Davis. It sounds as though you made up for the later arrival by enjoying the pool, wonderful treats at CREAM, and community. Hopefully your daughter has the opportunity to join the students at UC Davis and you get to enjoy one of the excellent selections we offer from local wineries in our lounge from 5-7pm reception each evening. We hope to have you visit us again..... hallmarkinn.com Sincerely- Marisa Schaffer

Check-in was fast although I wish all the hotel's amenities had been explained - there was no mention of the free bikes or anything like that. Although I found that I'd rather walk since everything was so close. Room was fine, although the main lamp switch was broken and power outlets were hard to find. Wifi worked well; got 10 mbps and slowed to around 3 mbps at peak times. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. I heard the train once before I went to sleep and didn't hear it again, guess I'm a heavy sleeper. I didn't try the breakfast or the attached restaurant. The pool looked nice but I didn't use it. Will stay here again when visiting Davis.

Thank you for sharing your experience during your recent stay and I have spoken with our front desk team to be sure to let our guests know of the bicycles and wonderful restaurant, Seasons, on our property. We are looking into a way to provide additional power outlets in the room to accommodate all the great new electronics available to us all. Be sure to try the breakfast as well as the pool the next time you travel through town. We look forward to the opportunity of another visit at hallmarkinn.com .....Sincerely, Marisa Schaffer

Friendly and efficient staff, good prices, excellent location, clean comfortable rooms with all of the amenities including a hot breakfast- everything that you could want when visiting either the University or the city in general. Easy walking distance to restaurants of all types and price ranges, and multiple transportation options for those not pressed for time. I always recommend the Hallmark for travel to Davis.

We just stayed at the Inn for my 50th high school reunion and were delighted with the service, accommodations, comfort of our room, and cleanliness of the entire facility. An added bonus was a complimentary drink during happy hour (very good wine, beer, and mixed drinks) and a nice breakfast room with great service and good breakfast choices (also complimentary). If it weren't so close to home, we'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: We had a discounted group rate and chose a king suite with balcony over the parking area. Loved it!

Everyone on the staff is extremely friendly. The hotel is clean and well decorated. And, of course, it's the perfect location: you can walk or bike to pretty much everything in town. The complimentary bikes made it easy to reach destinations which were too far to walk (and since Davis is such a bike-friendly city, we never had to use our car). The nightly receptions in the hotel bar and the free breakfasts in the adjoining cafe were a nice touch. Also, there are several excellent restaurants within a short walk.

Room Tip: I'd imagine rooms facing the street, might be quieter. Our room was in back facing the Amtrak s...

Thank you for sharing your experience of your recent visit to Davis. Our team is a wonderful collection of students, locals and individuals that enjoy being a member of the hospitality industry. I am glad you were able to take advantage of the bicycles to go out and explore the town. A wonderful excursion if you have the day is to ride to Winters were a majority of the wine we offer in our nightly reception is created....not too mention some more wonderful restaurants.

Stayed one night here driving back from San Francisco. Hotels were rather high there, so I looked at locations on my route back. The location was easy to get to and in a really nice area. I had booked a reservation, based on all the great reviews. Didn't arrive till 10 pm, so I missed the nightly reception. Had to wait to get checked in, as someone was ahead of me. Check-in staff was quick and very nice. Parking is behind the hotel next to building two and there is also a parking garage area with a few spots.

My room was nice and the pillows and bed were very comfortable. Room was warm, due to air not running before arrival. The a/c units are similar to ones used when we were in South America. It quickly cooled the room down.

Some people have complained about the train noise (there is an Amtrak station behind the hotel). This was not bad at all. I thought it added to the character of the hotel. I only really heard it when I was outside. I slept in and skipped breakfast. So I cannot attest to how good it is. There is a "cafe" next to the hotel (really a part of the hotel) that provides breakfast. The hotel provides a ticket for $8.50 towards your meal. There is a Whole Foods about a block away. So I just went and got something there on my way out of town.

I enjoyed my experience here and would definitely stay again.

On behalf of the entire team at the Hallmark Inn UC Davis, thank you for taking the time to share such a wonderful detailing of your recent visit. It is nice to hear that our energy efficient efforts with a sensor HVAC system does its part in cooling the room down quickly once you arrive. The train truly is a part of the towns character by extension ours; although I am still working on coordinating the "wake up" calls to the horn blowing. The Cafe 110 does a wonderful job that I hope on a future visit you may be able to enjoy.....try the warm breakfast bread pudding with yogurt....my favorite. Sincerely, Marisa Schaffer
