Reviewed 10 July 2014

This motel is very nice, room are big and comfortable, breakfeast is ok, staff is very friendly and helpfull.
I was a bit afraid of the noise due to proximity with the highway but the room are quiet and silent during night.
Kids loved the swimming pool.

We stayed at the Sandman Motel for several nights and were very pleased with our experience. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our 2nd floor room faced the levy at the back of the property in front of the Sacramento River, which could be accessed through a gate behind our building. It was very quiet, and a nice trail ran along the river to Old Sacramento. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed and a nice bathroom. The motel was very convenient to the I 5 freeway and also to Old Sacramento for dining and the wonderful railroad museum. It was also easy to get downtown to visit the capital. The breakfast at the motel was very average in a small special room in the building in which we stayed. I think that it could get very crowded. With the convenience to so much of town and with the wonderful view from Room 252, we would definitely stay at the Sandman again. There was plenty of free parking at the motel.

Nice, Comfortable, quiet, and convenient. My only complaint was that their breakfast area was so small and cramped. People were bumping into each other getting their food and there was no empty tables for our party of 4 to sit. Also, there wasn't much protein items. How about putting out some individual yogurts, cream cheese, peanut butter, individual cheese slices, granola, etc. Come on BW, I bet you can think of some cheap and healthy food choices. Other than breakfast, this hotel is clean, seemingly safe and inexpensive. Just what we were looking for on a quick trip to Sac.

Great value for price. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. The kids enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi. The breakfast room was clean and provided a basic continental breakfast. Easy access to attraction in Sacramento. No major issues.

This Best Western has easy access on and off Interstate 5. The employees are all very accommodating and friendly. Rooms and clean and the breakfast is the standard motel fare. If freeway noise bothers you when you have the windows open, you might opt for a Best Western further from the freeway. We've stayed here several times and have enjoyed the trail along the Sacramento River that leads to Old Town. It's a nice walk after having been in the car all day. There's also a free shuttle to the airport.

Room Tip: A room facing the river might be quieter but sunnier in the afternoon.

Rooms are typical Best Western... clean & comfortable. Breakfast, however, is MUCH more "Super 8" style than Best Western (no slam to either... just a fact). As a Diamond Elite Best Western member I've come to expect more from Best Western properties for breakfast.
