"A place we been looking for"

Sacramento is just like next door for us for shopping and outing with the family. So finding out Fairfield Inn Sacramento Cal Expo to stay recommended by friend it was like home sweetie home!
Management and services was beyond expected. Staff go beyond what they can offer to help and accommodate every ones need, to mention one Engineer Dinno Perez. Room was super clean with comfortable beds, fresh linens and pillows. Breakfast was great!

Room Tip: every room has it's own quality to present so no matter where and what side of the hotel your ro...

The Hotel is very well clean and has a easy access from the freeway. But most of all, the staff (Kenn O., Dinno and Brad) went out of their way to make it a well pleasurable trip for our volleyball club visiting from the Bay Area. I fully recommend this Hotel to anyone!!!

When we travel, there's only one hotel we have in mind and that's Marriott. Our stay in Fairfield Inn Sacramento Cal Expo was a great experience. Comfortable bed, soft pillows, clean linens and spacious room. Add to the mix the very good service. They acted very quickly when we requested for extra towels. Food was great. All these make them stand out among the rest.
Dinno Perez, the hotel's Chief Engineer, was very gracious to show our way around.
We look forward to our next stay in this hotel.

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a really great experience. They just redecorated with new carpet and wall paper. The beds were the most comfortable beds I've ever seen in a hotel. The staff was helpful, especially Brendan, the night staff. When we checked in late at night and needed extras pillows, he was so accommodating. Hotel is very clean. Breakfast was good.

Stayed at this pleasant and cost effective motel after a very unrestful night at the Courtyard across the parking lot. Quiet, clean with an above average breakfast. Desk clerk's and breakfast crew were exceptional in their eagerness to help.

When you enter a chain hotel, there are standard amenities you get everywhere, however on rare occassions you get something provided that is really odd. On entering this room, there was the obligatory shampoo, coffee maker, etc and in addition ear plugs. Yes that is correct, disposable foam ear plugs. I thought this is odd. However it didn't take long to find out why. The hotel (including the Courtyard and Town Place which share the same property) are almost right beside a busy train track and crossing. Its not just the rumble of trains hear day and night, it is the blowing of the horns at the crossing that occurs also. While the ear plugs are a nice thing to offer, if you are a light sleeper in all honesty, you should stay someplace else.

Outside of that, the hotel is undergoing a remodeling, and it was in progress while I was there. It wasn't finished, but it was far enough along to know it is a pretty significant upgrade and modernization. What has been done is very nice and the potential from a facility perspective is good when it will finish. New carpets, wallpaper, upgraded rooms etc. Thus this part of the experience is getting better and has great potential. Breakfast was standard and comparable to other Fairfields, and the employees were friendly.

In fairness I wouldn't stay here again, mostly because of the train noise. The physical plant will eventually be OK, but I'd want a quieter location and they do exist in the Sacramento area. So given a choice I'd find another location. I know that might seem a little harsh, especially since the hotel can't control the noise, but it is what it is.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other travelers. You mentioned you were shocked to see earplugs in our rooms; they are there in an effort to make your stay more comfortable in the event you are a light sleeper. Unfortunately, we have no control over the trains blowing their whistle and by law they have to make their presence know when they come to a public crossing.
We are sorry to hear that this made for a bad experience and would encourage you to give us another try. The rooms on the south side of the hotel tends to hear the least amount of train noise.
Thank you for your compliments regarding our renovation, we are very pleased with the results as well.
Sincerely,
Joanne

The hotel was built in 1979 and last renovated in 2006. The age shows everywhere. Furniture is outdated, carpets in rooms are dirty (new in hallways), bathrooms extremely small, windows not soundproof, walls between rooms very thin. The building is close to a busy railway and the trains blow their horns all day and night. It is hard to get a room without loud train noise - even for Marriott Platinum members, as I experienced just a few days ago. For what you get the room rate is too high in relation to other options in Sacramento. Compared with the more modern Fairfield Inn & Suites hotels the Cal Expo property is definitely below average. I can not recommend it. If you need to stay in this (unattractive) area, go for the Courtyard or Towne Place next door. They are newer and better hotels while the train noise is less intrusive.

Room Tip: Back side of hotel has less train noise but no rooms with King size beds.

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion of the Fairfield Inn on Trip Advisor. We're extremely sorry you were so disappointed with our property.
We are in the process of a new face You mentioned we had new carpet in the hallways; since your visit all guest rooms have had new carpet installed and we are currently adding new wallpaper to the guest rooms. New furniture for our lobby and a Market will be the next phase of our renovation. We hope you have a chance to come back and experience all the positive changes.
We wish we had power over the train noise, but by law they are required to sound their horn at a public crossing. For future reference, the south side of the building seems to hear the least amount of noise.
