“Very Good Experience - Would stay again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

I loved my stay there. It was for 4 nights. The staff, though not many, was very helpful and kind. The rooms were big and spacious, with ample furniture. There was a mini bar but it was empty. The room service came every morning. The bathroom was also clean and big. The internet also was good. i got around 15-12 mbps. The only issue I faced was that the water and soda dispenser didn't work at that time. But overall I would recommend this hotel.

This was a lovely hotel. We loved not only the location but the large rooms that were very nicely decorated. We felt very at home at this hotel and we will definitely be back.

Davis is a lovely place, our favorite college town in California.

Room Tip: eat at the restaurant its very good.

We like this hotel for its amenities, its closeness to our family's home and downtown Davis. We visit our family here at least once every year and have chosen Best Western Palm Court as our hotel for the past 10 years. We also like the fact that the rooms are essential suites, which means that our grandchildren can have an"overnight" with us when we are here.

Hotel did not honor our reservation, made months in advance through Booking.com for our son's law school graduation. Claimed "everything in your room is broken." Did not try to contact us in advance. Gave us no compensation. Sent us miles away to stay elsewhere at a less desirable hotel with barely an apology. Worst hotel experience in all our years of traveling!

Dear Carole,

We do apologize for any inconvenience we made have caused you and your family. But, we had some last minute maintenance issues with your room that could be resolved immediately. We could not contact you due to the fact that your reservation was made through Booking.com. As you noticed when you arrived, our hotel was full, including our sister hotels. Before your arrival we checked with every hotel in Davis for vacancy to accommodate you and your family at our cost. Therefore, the hotel in which you were placed in was only hotel in Davis, with a vacancy.

Once again, we do apologize. And we hope that you would consider us once again in the near future.

Good - Location: The Palm Court is located in downtown and for my visit, it was perfectly located. Close to the UC Davis campus and all the great restaurants and shops in downtown Davis.
Good - Staff: From the staff at the front desk to the housekeeping staff, all were very friendly. I needed utensils and later, a new key card for my room and the young man at the front desk was very accommodating.
Good - Restaurant: The restaurant in the building is called Café Bernardo. Really enjoy their food. Lot's salads, soups and great house made bread, plus my daughter had the flank steak and said it was wonderful. I had a roasted turkey breast sandwich with avocado and bacon, also quite tasty. They also serve a great breakfast.
Good - Accommodations: We loved the room. It was a split level with a living room and desk area upstairs and a bed an bathroom downstairs. The room was very clean and included nice bath products and a Keurig coffee maker. There is also coffee to go available in the lobby at 7:00. I wish it was available earlier as I was there for work and would like to have taken one on the road, but had to leave early. If water pressure is a concern for you, be advised its a bit light, but the shower head is adjustable so we just changed the setting and it was fine.
Good - Décor: This is a "boutique" hotel and is decorated well with a baby grand piano and palm trees in the lounge area. Lots of ceiling fans combined with the palms makes it feel a bit Casablanca-esque.
Bad - Noise: There is a bar on site - Which we discovered on our last night when what sounded like a sorority party began cheering. As it turns out the bar was located directly UNDER our room and had been fortunately quiet the first 3 nights. When I called the desk to find out what was up, the woman who answered offered to let us sleep in another room. As we were already for bed, we passed and made use of the earplugs that had been provided. I knew why the earplugs were provided at that point, but the noise detracted from what was an otherwise comfortable room (the bed and pillows were very comfy). The hotel was not full and I can't figure out why we were given a room over the bar when it clearly must be an ongoing problem. Over all the hotel is nice so I am still recommending it with this caveat ... Insist on a room that is NOT above the bar.

Room Tip: I gave sleep quality an average based on our overall experience for several days. We had one night o...

Great boutique like hotel in downtown Davis. Close to everything...restaurants, bars, shops, etc. The staff was attentive on my late checkin (11pm). The bar directly below my room was full but I didn't hear a thing! This is a definite yes to stay when you are visiting Davis. I will be back, without a doubt! Clean rooms, junior suites and ergonomic with motion sensor lighting in your rooms

We were two families traveling with preschool grandchildren, so each room was a suite and there was a terrace with furniture that was outside both rooms. The mattresses on the main beds were superb. The fold-out sofa beds were standard, that is, not so great, but honestly you can't find a good sofa bed in even the best, most fancy hotel, so I don't fault them for that. The showers and jacuzzis were very luxurious. Both rooms had fancy coffee makers that also made teas. The restaurant in the lobby, Bernardo's, was wonderful for the one meal we ate there, which was breakfast. I think at least one review described noise, but when we were there, which was over a weekend, it was completely quiet. We were very pleased and would highly recommend this hotel.
