“Nice value and good location”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

I stayed here in early February while attending a volleyball competition at the Sacramento Convention Center. It is a good location right off the freeway and only a short walking distance to Old Town Sacramento and the K street mall. While it is several blocks to the convention center, one could walk there as well if the weather is nice. I stayed in room 308 on the top floor overlooking the pool area, and everything was clean and functional. Noise was not an issue and I had a great night's sleep on a comfortable bed. There is a Denny's restaurant right next door to the hotel as well as a Starbucks close by. While I could have taken the elevator, it was more convenient for me to take the stairs down to the lobby for breakfast in the morning. Everyone that works here seemed to be friendly and efficient, and I never encountered any problems. I will definitely stay here again, and will recommend the Vagabond Executive to my friends!

Room Tip: Rooms on the side facing the pool and J street seem to be quieter than the other side of the hotel...

We stayed at this hotel and found the location very convenient right in Old Town Sacramento. There was no problem with the room: it was well equipped and the bed was comfortable.We found the noise level extremely disturbing, as there was road repair going on virtually all night long.(We fashioned some ear plugs, and we were tired out after a long day of driving. What was worse that the heating did not work, and we woke up freezing! We wanted to fix some coffee in the morning and found a dirty coffee maker and stains (blood?) on the counter.The staff was sympathetic when we mentioned the noise and the broken heating and gave us a discount, which we found very fair.Security -or rather the lack of it - is the most serious problem here: when we wanted to leave, we found a person curled up asleep in the elevator. Also sometime during our stay our car lock had been picked and a box of our travel supplies had been stolen.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room!

Please accept my apology for the problems you encountered at our inn. They have been working to move tracks at the amtrak station . I wasn't aware it went on all night. We do our best to keep the elevator clear but sometimes they do get in the elevator. Again please accept my apology

Manager.

We just returned from a lovely stay at this hotel. For the money, this is the way to go. Free parking, great breakfast, great location and great staff, we were greeted by helpful smiles by all staff at this hotel. A Starbucks is across the street, next to the train station, save a dollar on parking and walk across to get there. Don't overlook this gem!

Room Tip: Ask for a room closer to downtown to avoid freeway noise

This hotel is an excellent choice if you are just interested in a clean and convenient place to stay in Sacramento. I had a morning meeting in the city and came in the night before. Clean room, adequate size, no frills but everything worked. There is some road and train noise but being a heavy sleeper it did not bother me.

Without question, I would stay there again but if you're looking for something unique or special this is not the place.

It is what it is....Inexpensive but very close to Old Sacramento...walking distance. The rooms are outdated, but there is a pool and hot tub. Plus Denny's is right next door, which is great for late night (after 2 am) eating. Close to the freeway and the airport is about 10 miles away. Great pit stop.

We stayed one night in this hotel on our way to Lake Tahoe. The hotel could not be any easier to find! As soon as you come off the freeway its straight in front of you! The location is great and is close to Old Town and also a large shopping mall too.
Our room was spacious and had a fridge, microwave and coffee maker which was handy. Like other reviews, we did find it a little noisy but not from the freeway but from the station over the road and the freight trains which ran through the night. There was also a sprinkler running in the car park during the night which woke us up at around 4am but after calling reception, someone came and stopped it straight away.
The breakfast which was included was good with a good choice of muffins and waffles etc.
We ate in dennys for dinner which was right next door.
Its an easy walk through the car park to get to Old Sacramento and is worth a visit - there are some nice bars there as well as interesting shops and museums. We did feel a little unsafe when walking around later in the afternoon as there seemed to be drunk people hanging around so we did not stay out after dark for this reason, so like in any city, you just need to stay alert!!
