Governors Inn Hotel
Ranked #16 of 82 Hotels in Sacramento
Reviewed 18 June 2011

A very nice hotel for the money. Rooms recently remodeled, clean and well appointed. Basic continential breakfasted included. A nice surprise is they have complimentary train station and airport transportation. Priceline assigned hotel with a bid of $45 per night for three nights. Friendly and helpful front desk. Located one exit north of Old Town Sacramento exit so close to downtown, but not walkable. Located next to a McDonalds and accross the street what looks like a nice cafe. Without hestitation, would stay here again.

Having read some of the reviews of this hotel, I am baffled what some travelers want. I've traveled extensively and found this hotel to be excellent in presentation, cleanliness, staff and location. It is a great value. There are several restaurants nearby. I would recommend it highly.

Excellent value hotel, less than 5 minutes from Downtown and the Amtrak Depot. Recently remodeled rooms a very comfortable, complete with refrigerators and plenty of space. Two problem areas stand out:
- As mentioned in earlier reviews, the door slamming issue is a nuisance. We were on the 2nd floor, Room 243, and all around us until 3am you could hear SLAM, SLAM, SLAM periodically. Someone needs to adjust those door closers!
- The continental breakfast isn't even worth bothering with. When we went down at 9am on a Saturday morning, all we found was a tray of glazed donuts, a few bagels, stale coffee, and warm orange juice. Better just to hit the McDonald's conveniently located in the hotel parking lot.

Thank you for your review and feedback about your stay. We try to be very responsive to our guests and sincerely apologize about the door slamming issue and the continental breakfast. In terms of the breakfast, it is very unusual for our staff not to have restocked the breakfast items as we purchase items for the breakfast bar on a daily basis. Thank you for mentioning this as I have passed this along to our breakfast staff for making sure items are always available during our breakfast hours. We hope to see you again soon.

Stayed here a couple of nights for business. The staff was very kind and accommodating with all my requests. The rooms are spacious and clean (seemed to be recently remodeled). Would definitely stay here again.

We booked this hotel hotel through a private party booking service so right off we didn't know what we were going to get. When we got to the hotel we were like it looks ok so we started in. Very very nice! We went up to the room and it was very very nice and spacious. We have a 2 year old and that was a very good feature. He was able to run and jump around as if he was at home. The only thing I think needs improvment in the Contintal Breakfast. We went down expecting a really nice breakfast bar seeing how nice the rest of the hotel is. We were very disappointed :( and thats the only thing I found wrong. I would most definitely book this hotel whenever i'm in Sacremento.

Thank you so much for your kind comments about the Governors Inn Hotel. We take great pride in ensuring every guest has a great experience with us. We are always looking to improve our breakfast bar and appreciate your feedback. Last year we added hot waffles and Seattle's Best Coffee to our continental breakfast menu. We also converted two conference rooms to accommodate a larger breakfast area and added a large screen TV. We look forward to seeing you again.

I reserved this hotel through a blind bid on Priceline.com. I was a little concerned after winning the bid and reading the reviews for this hotel. I was pleasantly surprised after getting to the location. The hotel was clean, well kept, and recently remodeled. They offered a nice breakfast of danishes, fruit, juices, coffee, tea, waffles, instant oatmeal, toast, and cold cereal. It was plenty for a free breakfast! The safty issue seemed to be a concern for others, but I found the hotel to be safe. It closed and locked the back gate at night and had an iron fence around the property. I did not see any homeless as stated in other reviews. The pool was nice, still a little cold for me but my kids enjoyed it. The spa was nice. Overall, I wanted to post since I thought this hotel got a bad rap from previous posts. Oh....and the beds were comfortable, I didnt notice a noise problem since we sleep with the AC on.

This place was very clean and quiet (despite being very close to I-5). With free parking, free wireless, and a continental breakfast, it was a fabulous value for the money! The shower was spacious and the water pressure great, and I really like having a refrigerator in the room. If you're looking for a place with character that is within walking distance of restaurants, this is not it. But if you're looking for something with just the basics -- but the basics done well -- this is the place!
