Governors Inn Hotel
Ranked #18 of 83 Hotels in Sacramento
Reviewed 23 May 2012

I got a decent deal on this property on Priceline. It's not downtown and not really within walking distance of anypoints of interest, but the location is convenient for either a one-night stopover or if you plan to do most of your travelling by car as it's not so bad. The rooms were spacious and clean. Breakfast, but it wasn't the best. Staff seemed quite responsive in our limited interaction with them. Parking was free, which was a plus.

I stayed at this hotel a number of years ago when it was often used by the Department of Education for conferences and recently returned to it when I tired of spending ridiculous amounts of money on rooms and parking at the chains. If you are looking for large flat screen TVs and glitz, this is not your kind of place. If you are looking for a place very close to downtown, nice front desk people, consistently clean and large rooms, a good bed, a small refrigerator, and space to work at night, it's a good value. I've gotten a $79 rate, which includes a continental breakfast.

Recently our family stayed at the Governor's Inn, we were celebrating a birthday and wanted to spend time in Old Sacramento...this hotel was so close and had everything we wanted...a pool, spa, clean and large rooms, with very comfortable beds. We felt right at home. I recommend this hotel with 5 stars, you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: We had the king, and it has a separate area for a couch and a desk...large comfortable rooms.

Motels.com gives this hotel a 2 1/2 star on a scale of 5, but I would rate it higher. We normally stay at 2 or 3 star hotels and it was the best older motel/hotel we've stayed. Nice sized room, very clean, etc. Cosmetically it maybe older, but well maintained. We saved a lot of money ($77.40 vs. $148.00) booking it through motels.com, rather than booking it directly with the hotel.

Clean and quiet; quirky. (You'll know when you see the hallway carpeting). Hard to detect evidence supporting claims of "recently renovated" except for freshly painted hall walls. Breakfast distinctly meh. Some extra efforts on display - origami folded towels, brown-paper wrapped glasses.... worth it if you can get a below-rack rate price.

Room Tip: The freeway is on the west side; a McDonalds is to the north - try for an east facing room.

For $90 a night...a 3 star it is not. Super dated and needs a renovation. Nice front desk people.
Stay at a chain. You'll thank me.

Absolutely could not have been a better place to stay while we were in Sacramento. We were very fortunate to land at 'home' away from home.
From the general manager to the desk clerks, hotel staff and housekeeping, they made us feel welcome and were ready to meet every request and concern, and filled them promptly.
I really cannot say enough good things about this group of folks we met--Toni, Michael, Josiah, Sarah, Hope, Xa, Justin, Yolanda, and the many others whose names we didn't get.
This is the place you need to stay if you are in Sacramento. You'll be well taken care of--they treat you like you are someone special. You will not be disappointed, either in the size of the rooms, the beds, the breakfast arrangements, check in and out...all very wonderful, fantastic, and smooth.

Room Tip: Third floor has more view of city
