Best Western Sandman Motel

Reviewed 10 January 2014

Easy to find, It has a large parking lot. smooth professional checkin. On one visit to the area, we tried the other B. W. But in our opinion this one was overall better & the location felt safer. When in Sacramento the Sandman is our choice. We requested & received a quiet room on the second floor overlooking the River walk. Our room was not very large, but clean, with a micro wave & refrigerator. There is no elevator, so if you have a lot of luggage you might consider a room on the ground level. We had a good quiet restful night in a comfortable queen size bed. Breakfast is available in a dedicated room on the ground level, it was an enhanced continental meal with a good selection, with an cheerful attendant that was very helpful. My only regret was I neglected to get her name. Our day trip to.Old Town was a little disappointing. The store clerks seemed more interested in having conversations among themselves or people they knew, and socializing on the phone. We visited on old time candy store, the man never said hello or asked if he could help us. We revisited the Steamer restaurant, from our last visit. Ordered the clam chowder with bacon topping. The bacon chips were dry and tasteless, & we never did find the clams. Checkout from the Sandman was efficient, they asked about our stay, we advised them everything was great & if we are in the area again, we will return. When exiting the parking lot to return to the highway, be careful about oncoming traffic. There is a blind spot with traffic coming around the curve in both directions moving pretty fast.

Room Tip: Rooms in the rear are less susceptible to noise from the highway

My wife and I have stayed here 4 years in a row with no problems or issues. We would highly recommend this hotel based on quality, location, service and amenities. Staff is friendly and helpful and everything in the room is as advertised and works. We like the big TV and the rooms are pretty quiet.

very pet friendly; nice continental breakfast with friendly staff; close to Sacramento River for walks during the day; close to downtown and all the freeways; plus gas stations just up the street; only drawback is older construction, so sound travels more easily from room to room

Our pet friendly rooms have been a big hit. Combined with the access to the Sacramento River and the pet area makes it simple and convenient.
Thanks for your review.

The location is convenient to the Capitol and many historical sites. It is located just of the freeway - but I heard no traffic noise. The breakfast choices were abundant and presented in a clean and organized manner. It was so much fun making my own waffle!! The coffee was tasty and of good quality. I have stayed and higher priced hotels and this one far exceed my desires and needs. There is interior and exterior art exhibited - plus beautiful Spanish tile walkways. NICE!

The hotel staff were friendly & professional. I had guests for take out & appreciated the sofa & coffee table in the room. It worked well to use the desk for my tablet. The hotel is adjacent to the river with a nice walking path.

Enjoyed the motel. I have stayed there 5 or 6 times in the last 5 years. Considerable upgrades to the rooms and the cleanliness in the last couple years. Nena's Restaurant in the parking lot is to be avoided at all costs. Food is less than mediocre. My wife ordered a cheese burrito and I a steak quesadilla. What we got was a cheese quesadilla folded like a burrito and a plain cheese quesadilla. The waitress argued with my wife about what a burrito was. Will not go there again.

Everything was great with our stay. The guy that checked us in was in need of an attitude check and the noise from the parking lot of guys who were cussing and yelling at each other was a tad annoying and bothersome but all in all it was a bed and we needed sleep!!
