Check-in went rather smoothly on Friday evening, just had to walk a long way to retrieve my license plate number before they would check me in. Once in room we found the carpets were terribly soiled as was a hide a bed couch. I realize this is the end of summer and a lot of people use this hotel because it is close to Six Flags, but would expect the room to be cleaner. There were five in our room and it was set up for 3. The air conditioning was not working and we were told to keep pushing the reset button to have it come back on. This does not sound like a safe way to keep cool and luckily was fixed by Saturday. The pool area was clean but the hot tub looked real "murky", not real inviting. After the pool closed and the kids got ready for bed we found we could not get the couch to pull out. The maintenance man was prompt in coming to the room, but had to literally man-handle the couch to get it to open. This was because it had been tied up with plastic ties due to it being broken. One of the granddaughters slept in a collapsing bed for 2 nights. We had to call for blankets and pillows to accommodate her since none were in the room. Breakfast is always a plus and appreciated, but their breakfast room is not large enough to hold a crowd. It was very difficult to even get a cup of coffee and I had to stand so that my grandchildren could sit and eat. Once again, this hotel caters to those going to 6 Flags, so you would think they would have a larger room for the breakfast crowd. We walked to 6 Flags due to the long line for the shuttle, but it was wonderful seeing the shuttle arrive as we were leaving for the night. This would definitely not be my first choice of hotels when returning to the park.

Room Tip: Although traffic noise does not bother me, our room faced the street and people seem to like to trea...

Third time staying at this hotel. Great for families visiting Six Flags, including free shuttle. Staff helpful, clean facilities, smallish but nice pool. Free breakfast every morning is really convenient. Overall happy.

I stayed here last weekend with friends and will never stay here again. After we checked in we went to our room only to find a random many in it counting money. He turned out to be an employee but the front desk couldn't give us a reason why he was in the room and what he was doing. The second night we were there, the front desk issued a set of keys to a random family who walked right in to the room. When asked about it the employees(we discussed it with two individuals) on duty couldn't or wouldn't explain how it happened.

The breakfast room isn't large enough to accommodate the guests. It took us about 20 minutes to make a waffle and there's only seating for about 20 people. The shuttle to Discovery Kingdom, which is a major selling point for this location, can only carry 9 people at a time and doesn't start running until the park opens. Why not start it 30 minutes before? There were about 30 people waiting in the lobby by 9:45am.

On the positive side, the pool and hot tub were in good shape and it was nice that towels plenty of towels were available. The hotel is within walking distance of the park. The rooms are set up nicely.

In the future, I'll pay more to stay elsewhere. The locations great but my safety is more important than being close to an amusement park.

Not in a great area but conveniently located near Six Flags. Shower water pressure weak. Vending machines were empty or out of order. Front desk said no roll away beds due to fire code then saw staff rolling one into another room the next morning. Staff was friendly, lobby and pool area were clean. Rooms were clean. Bed was comfortable. Ok experience.

The Best Western Inn & Suites at Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo CA has the feel of a more upscale hotel. The location is very easy access to the freeway. Certainly it is close to major attractions. The hotel itself is well laid out and furnished. Parking is plentiful but sort of stretched out so you may have to park a bit of a distance from the hotel entrance.

Was a nice place to stay and close to the park. I went to the races and my wife and Grandkids went to the park. They were able top take the shuttle to the park. They used the shuttle to return to the Motel . That made it easy for me.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
You're in for a treat at this spacious Vallejo hotel where the best the Golden State has to offer is right outside your door. Six Flags® Discovery Kingdom is our neighbor, which means that you simply have to stroll across the street for a day full of fun. Want something a little more laid back? Napa Valley is also nearby, so an afternoon of wine tasting is an absolute must. This Vallejo hotel is only 15 minutes away from Napa Valley, so a cab ride is an easy choice. We're the best hotel in Vallejo for adventure seekers. The heated outdoor pool and hot tub is open year round for a little relaxation after a day of exploration. Free parking and free shuttle service to Six Flags® Discovery Kingdom are just a couple of the ways guests are treated like family. No other Vallejo hotel can compare. If you're interested in something a little different, you're in luck. Our Vallejo hotel is near several dog shows at Solano County Fairgrounds and the Jelly Belly® Factory. This is one unusual match that really works. Speed lovers delight at the NASCAR® and Indy Grand Prix at Infineon Raceway. Of course, sometimes you're traveling on business. Maybe you're taking your high school senior to check out Touro University. Maybe you're in town with Valero® Oil Refinery, Chevron Oil Refinery, or have business to take care of on Mare Island. Maybe you need to host a business meeting or event in our convenient business room. There's no reason you can't fully enjoy your stay just because you're punching the clock or writing tuition checks. Enjoy a full breakfast before starting your day - it's on us. ... more   less
