“Very nice place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2005

With a comfortable room, sufficient breakfast, and super helpful staff, we ended up staying an extra night. Enjoyed the pool and small hot tub, and the location is excellent, close to a beautiful park on the river. We'd be happy to stay there again.

Great hotel, very close to downtown Sacramento (next freeway exit out from center of town). The room was clean and was a good size. There was a nice pool with jacuzzi where we took the kids for a splash. A bonus was the McDonalds practically on the premises (good for a snack for the kids here and there). The continental breakfast was nice (cereals, bagels, pastries). The area surrounding the hotel though a bit industrial/commercial. I would stop here again because of the conveniece to downtown.

The Governor Hotel is a nice hotel off the I-5 freeway. The room had two queen beds, great for a family of four. The bathroom was average size and the shower had glass doors, no shower curtain. Both the room and the bathroom were very clean. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Overall the hotel is perfect for a one or two night stay and they also offer a continental breakfast in the lobby.

Compared to other Sac hotels, this place is a great value. Service and friendliness is great, breakfast included, and rooms are spacious, comfortable, and quiet. I've stayed here several times for business-related travel, and have no complaints.

We stayed at the Governor's Inn on a short Sacto layover. We selected it largely from Trip Advisor ratings, and because it is one of the few area hotels offering Airport Shuttle service( this can be important as te Sacramento airport is a distance from town). The hotel had few surprises, either pro or con. The room was large, but not especially well appointed. No minibar. No bathtub (shower only - at least in our room). We were pleased that we could open the BR window. There was nothing wrong with Governor's Inn, but nothing to bring us back either. While we waited for the shuttle at the airport, the only other hotel shuttle we saw was for Embassy Suites downtown. Guess we'll try them on our next visit.

We ended up at this hotel late at night and quite stressed. We found it a peaceful oasis after a rough trip. It seemed child-friendly and generally nice. Best hotel breakfast buffet I've seen aside from resorts, though the plate was small. Good value for us, though we didn't do a price comparison with other local hotels.

My husband and I have stayed at the Govenors Inn a few times. Every time the service has been fit for a King! We had two grandchildren with us the last time, ages 8 & 10. They kept saying, everyone is so nice! Yes, even to children. We especially love the breakfast time. We feel like honored guests! It's very casual, warm, friendly, just like home, if I had a cook and a maid!! Thank you to an excellent staff!
