First thing they did was ding me for $10 for parking If it’s on “their” website, it isn’t obvious At least the deal on the room was decent

First floor room Room and bathroom are definitely dated, but relatively clean Inside Outside my room are bottles, cans, and cigarette butts on the ground Can’t remember ever seeing that before at any hotel I’ve stayedThat $1000 would have gone to housekeeping You blew that

Rhonda Robinson

4/5only because of all the construction and the pool was closed in 90 degree weather in July!The food was hot, delicious and ready in 5 minutes Staff were attentive to our needs and friendly They welcomed us and met all of our expectations

Cynthia Carbajal

We got our car window shattered in the middle of the night and the hotel does not want to be responsible for it Nothing was taken as there was nothing valuable in there However they have all this “security” driving around when you arrive but all of a sudden have none at night

It doesn’t seem right For the prices this hotel is charging they should have better service or security when it comes to these things

What can I say? Simply the BEST! As a trucker, I do many layovers at various different locations The desk clerks who checked me in and out were extremely friendly, courteous, and efficient As tired as I am after a run, it’s important to me that I get to bed soon after arrival and not to spend too much time waiting in line, or checking in

This process was very quick The room was exceptionally clean and everything was in good working order I was VERY happy with how quiet the room was I couldn’t hear anything outside of my room, which made for a great night’s sleep along with a bed more comfortable than my own bed at home Thank you for giving me this opportunity to share this with you and for a great stay

Tish Stepp

We book Holiday Inn because our Daughter went to see Tyler the Creator at Golden 1 center It was the best place to book to go to any event there You walk out the door and you’re practically at the center

There was good food and entertainment Both my boyfriend and myself are diabetic and they had mini coolers to keep our medication cold It was the most comfortable sleep I’ve had at any hotel The next day we went to breakfast and the food was great Thank you so much for making a great stay Will stay again

Lorena Ayala

From the moment we checked in until the moment we left, we enjoyed our stayDarlene did a phenomenal job at checking us in She was very entertaining, accommodating, and helpful

Was given a different room than I booked Decor was awful Looks like they threw a bunch of missed matched items together

80’s style tan and mauve sofa, 1 bright green chair, black and gold desk, dark green headboard, plaid chairs topped off by the blue spotted carpet I’m dizzy in this room! Will not stay here again Zero thought put into the decor Lol and an empty Kleenex box in the entry way 😳

Erika Wright

I LOVED my stay here! The staff were incredibly kind and helpful My room was beautiful The breakfast was great (cereal, fresh fruit, bagels, and free coffee and muffin snacks all day

) I think the negative reviews are unfair This is a wedding venue – so sometimes it is loud (bring earplugs) It’s a beautiful old building – but it is old so things might not always work perfectly I didn’t have great internet in my room, but it was perfect in the breakfast area so I did my work there And the staff will do everything in their power to make your stay comfortable The Huntington Suite is spectacular!!!! I will definitely stay here again

Jerry Van Heeringen

We were invited to our close friend’s son’s wedding held here and decided to book a room The entire Hotel has been renovated consistent with the period and is just beautiful Our room was spacious with an ample bathroom including a luxurious spa tub

The ballroom is a nice venue for a wedding and reception After the ceremony the guests were invited to the bar just down the hall to wait as the tables were set up in the ballroom for dinner Adjacent to the bar is a patio equipped with heaters so it can be used year round A continental breakfast is served on the main floor next to the lobby

We liked:- It’s quite even when it’s on a main road- Area is clean and safe- Room is good size and restroom as well

-Clean facilities-Easy check in and check outWe disliked:-Parking situation if you have a bigger vehicle it’s quite difficult to maneuver and narrow spaces-Breakfast choices ( 2% milk and 3 cereals Toast, butter, cream cheese and jam Waffles and syrup Limited fruit Danish bread VERY strong coffee)

Beverly Bokovitz

Boutique hotel (which are usually charming) but this place needs some cleaning-Lobby and hallway carpet is exceedingly dirty Parking is super scary – one lane down a winding corner and hope no one is coming😳 The TV continuously loses connection so the show pops on and off

I paid $40 for the worst onion rings and chicken tenders ever Bed is comfy but pillows are tiny- overall, probably would not recommend

LateNite Billy

Garbage and LiesI made a reservation only because it was close to the Hospital and the pictures looked decent My fiance’ had been diagnosed with a very bad Cancer and was booked for an emergency surgery at UC Davis

We live 200 miles away and it was important for her to have a clean and quiet place for her to recover for a couple days after the surgery We also had family coming in from around the country to support and they need to be accommodated the day of – parking was TERRIBLE and limited We showed up only to find the hallways leading to the rooms we filthy and the place was dingy The room smelled of mold and we immediately left We explained this to the manager and he was extremely apologetic once I explained my needs & concerns I explained we needed to find somewhere else that was clean and adequate He said he understood and promised a full refund, however we booked through a third party and we had to go through them He promised as soon as I made the call, he would allow the refund through the third party I looked him in the eye and asked ” I have your word that their will be no problems with this” and he nicely replied “absolutely not” At that moment it was more important to get my fiance comfortable so we went on to find another property When we finally found another suitable place I made that call for the refund that was promised, Now, the story changed once I wasn’t right in front of this kid He explained he would NOT issue the refund and never made that promise He explained I was still responsible for the first day and he would waive the rest BUT this was contrary to everything we had clearly spoke about Fortunately my credit card company was much more willing to accommodate and reversed the charges themselves despite this kids lies I certainly would not recommend this place especially if you have medical needs

The breakfast was just okay I wish there had been meat options for those that don’t eat pork My digital key didn’t work, so I had to get a physical key

But, the rest of my stay was positive My room was clean The staff was very helpful – from helping me find a room to better suite my needs to holding packages for me Everyone was very pleasant and spoke when you either entered or left the hotel One of the better stays I’ve had at a Hilton brand location

Ellison Torres

I came for my 40th birthday and when i arrived i was greeted so well by front office person Frank He was so nice and accommodating! Really made me feel special on my weekend getaway I had a couple of guests joining me and they all thought as well as i that the location was perfect, room was large and comfortable, and the staff was the friendliest we have had in a while! The morning breakfast staff was quick to greet and made sure everything was stocked and clean for everyone

We will definitely return and was one of the most memorable vacations we have had Thank you hilton for making this weekend perfect!

Rehnaz Bi

I had one of the worst experience at this hotel the other day I am a nursing school and wanted to stay there for a night for exam study and the night person so rude and racist I am a hilton employee and made a reservation and wanted to stay over with my friends and the front desk didn’t let me

Either they are uneducated on policies or don’t know how to run a night I asked the person can you cancel my reservation since I just made it , she told me they are not allowed and she can’t cancel it I see they charge my card twice so therefore this matter will be going to Hilton corporate They are so unprofessional and their ethics and standard to run a hotel sucks

Jazmin Hupp

Nice clean rooms and friendly staff The gym was great and looks out onto the pool deck This is an older Marriott but really well taken care of so it feels more vintage than “old”

The pool/hot tub deck with waterfalls is a nice touch The waterfalls help mask the traffic noise The only thing I wouldn’t do again is the buffet breakfast in the restaurant But there’s a full Starbucks inside as well

Jennifer W

Pros: AC worked well, was not too loud Bed and pillows were comfortable Water pressure was good

Nice bar/restaurant on site Fridge was nice and coldCons: a little outdated, two lamps were not working, one outlet didn’t work No privacy please tagSatisfactory stay, just expect more from Marriott


I stayed here for approximately 6 weeks for work I stayed in a double queen room It was spacious for just me, clean

The only thing I hated was the marble type bathroom floor It’s a slipping hazard if you are not careful I ran into no issues, staff is attentive and pleasantThey have a washer and dryer on site, but they are always busy since it is free Nice and clean hot tub and pool I utilized the gym some during my stay They offer free water in the gym and they do have things to clean the equipment once you are finished I had a very pleasant long term stay Many restaurants near the hotel and also you can find groceries

Christine Goan

I read a mix of reviews about this place but I liked the management responses to the reviews so we decided to give this place a try I’m VERY glad we did! Parking was easy, free and plentiful Our room was large and extremely clean! I liked not having carpet and the hard-surface floor in our room had clearly been thoroughly scrubbed

Also, we were happy with how absolutely quiet it was overnight so we could sleep well The beds were soft and comfortable The breakfast was perfectway more variety than expected I loved that the cheese omelettes and potatoes were unseasoned which allowed us to season them ourselves Excellent value for the price! We would definitely stay again

Alyssa Rousseau

I usually don’t write reviews, but feel like many of the reviews did not paint this location how we felt First the good The staff was great

They were kind and friendly The breakfast was great as well We did get there pretty soon after they opened, about 6:45 or so (breakfast is from 6-10 every day), but it was fresh, eggs with cheese, sausage, biscuits filled with sausage and eggs, potatoes, sausage gravy, waffle station, cereal, bread and bagels, fruit, juice and coffee We did stop by before leaving about 8:30 one morning and all of the waffle stuff was put away, so it may go fast The location also seemed fairly safe, even though it is a rougher area a few blocks overOne of the reasons we booked the hotel was because it had such great reviews and was recommended for families We were traveling to visit the Zoo and FairyTale town with our young kids, 2 and 4 This is more of a mix between hotel and motel Some rooms are accessible from hallways inside, others are outside through a locked gate, more like a motel We stayed in one of these rooms When we walked in, the smell of cleaning supplies took us back and all windows had been left open They have removed all carpet and replaced it with linoleum floors, our feet were sticking to the floors as we were walking around (we assumed from whatever they used to clean) The beds also shifted on the floors if you leaned against them or bumped them Because of the floors and lack of carpet and padding, you hear every step the people above you make There isn’t a built-in closet, but a freestanding one and desk and cabinets with a fridge and microwave in it These close very loudly with strong magnets Again, you can also hear when your neighbors close theirs Not helpful with small kids if you are trying to open or close them while kids are sleeping The bathroom only had one bar towel rack, a back of door hook would have been helpful, there is basically no counter space, and the toilets don’t have lids Not very friendly for sharing a space with others, or being able to close the lid so kids don’t throw stuff in It gave the bathroom a public restroom feel It would have been nice as well for them to see we reserved the room for 4 people and provide enough bath towels and washcloths for everyone, but I had to request more They provided containers on the wall in the shower for shampoo, conditioner and body wash, the conditioner was empty (only to find out while taking a shower), and they had hand soap and lotion on the wall in the bathroom The lotion was not lotion Overall, this was not what we would have expected for the price or the other reviews

Jojo Dukes

When we first saw the room we were like wow nice! as we entered we could smell that funky rundown motel smell, there was a spill on the table/counter top that was next to the TV Luckily we always take a container of sanitizing wipes with us because I had to get to work and wipe down all table tops, bathroom cupboard top, sink and toilet, the wipes were so dirty, I was surprised because it looked like everything was nice and clean except for that spill On our wall was a bug that looked like a roach that someone smashed but no one cleaned it up

One thing the sheets looked nice and clean We were really happy that we stayed only one night

This was the perfect hotel to stay at while visiting a family member at Sutter Medical across the street Discounted rates are available; just tell the hotel you’re visiting the hospital The location is super convenient, since the main entrance to the hospital is literally a block away

All the staff, from the reservation office and front desk to the restaurant and cafe, were quite friendly and understanding when they realized why we were staying at that hotelThe cafe and restaurant serve delicious food I was there only for breakfast, but they seem to have options for lunch and dinner, along with drinks at the bar In fact, many people seem to visit the cafe and restaurant even if they’re not guests at the hotelThe ambiance is quite trendy and welcoming I’d love to come back to Sacramento someday to see the neighborhood again

Eric Walters

The atmosphere is pristine and upbrow; the Cafe’ Bernardo is superb with a gourmet menu begging a trip from out of town just to eat The top draw, however, is the people: we had Tonya literally roll out the red carpet for my wife and I The location catty-corner from Sutter hospital enabled my mobility-challenged wife to easily stroll to our room

It’s a three-star hotel: but it’s a five in my book!

Ryan Behee

The best hotel experience possible Our unexpectedly long stay was a master class in hospitalityAll needs and desires were quickly provided by the most attentive staff we’ve ever experienced

The entire hotel is gorgeous and clean The room was quiet, the beds are extremely comfortable, and we loved the TV/streaming setup Blackout curtains, powerful AC, and nice views of Midtown gave us every comfort of homeThe location is perfect for visiting Sutter Hospital, with only a block and a half walk to the entrance A bunch of great restaurants, groceries, and services are also within a few blocks Parking can seem tricky in Midtown, but the staff gave good adviceWithout leaving the building, you have a world class bar, The Four Palms, plus one of the best restaurants in the city: Café Bernardo Room service is fast and affordable Every floor has either an ice machine or filtered water The comfortable lobby has a peaceful ambience and a gas fireplace for cooler nightsThe vigilant and personable security unit made us feel completely safe at all timesThe front desk staff is a finely-tuned team of experts Jash, Christina, Alexis, and the other desk agents made us feel like the most important guests they had The housekeeping and maintenance teams were equally accommodating, professional, and generous Without exaggeration, the service here is better than any luxury resortDoubtlessly the finest hotel in Midtown We’ll never stay anywhere else

Helen Town

First time here Very clean all around Our view was of the roof

😆 The hotel location is not the most scenic, but what can you do? Just down the road about 5 min, and you get to the mall, restaurants, etc Lots of receptions here, we enjoyed seeing the fancy dresses The pool served its purpose-it could use a cleaning The hot tub does not work BIG BOO! I’m not surprised, but making a note to myself to check hot tub status at different hotels in advance With AAA we got free parking, which was great gated entrance for safety in the late hours Ohthe toilet is pretty low Not a huge deal, but, a bit surprising to my knees 🤣

Deborah Wallace

This hotel was spotless, the food extremely delicious, the room comfortable, the pool pristine, and the amenities amazing But my favorite part of my stay was the graciousness and friendliness of EVERY staff member that I encountered I did not encounter one staff member who didn’t greet me with a smile, accommodated my needs, and just wanted me to have a nice stay

Tom Sparks

I was in town on business and chose the Hilton Sacramento Arden West to stay at for a few hours Check in was easy The hotel looked very clean and nice! I didn’t get a chance to explore all the amenities and lobby much

Went to the room and just worked for a few hours The room was clean! and the view was nice! Although it was near the freeway I didn’t hear any road noise at all! a huge plus! I would stay there again!

herkisstheriot (FansieOnBroadway)

The spot to pull over for valet parking is a nightmare to get to (if it isn’t full by the time you get there, so get there extra extra early if you want to park there) We parked a street or two down and had to walk 6 minutes with all of our stuff to the hotel Once we got there we walked up and asked to check in during which we were told the room was somehow not ready (check in was said to be at 3pm and we got there at 5pm)

We waited and eventually got up but didn’t get much time to enjoy it since we had a concert that night The guy checking us in gave us a whopping $25 discount (off a very expensive room) which was then null and void considering we had to pay for overnight parking in a totally different garage because they don’t have enough parking to accommodate the rooms Not to mention they overbooked and screwed us on the wait I realize it’s not the fault of the front desk staff, they just work there However, I’m sure they were all well aware that a concert this big was going to be in town and could’ve prepared themselves a little bit better for that Overall, not impressed with how things were handled ESPECIALLY the parking Wouldn’t recommend for concerts/big events Just go to a Holiday Inn or something else I can say the beds were comfortable though, if that’s something you’re looking for

Desiree Lee

My daughter and I were in Sacramento one night for a concert at the Golden 1 Event Center This hotel is hands-down the best located to the arena We literally walked around the corner

The room was modest compared to other Hyatt hotels I’d stayed in the past We had two queen beds, and they were comfortable My daughter got creative with the pillows on her bedThe bathroom was small There was only a shower, no tub It was serviceableI signed up for a rewards program during check-in I asked the desk clerk if there were any welcome perks for new members She gave us a room upgrade to one with a view of the Capitol She also gave us extra shampoo and conditioner at no chargeThe fridge and coffee maker were housed in a cabinet with a lovely floral aestheticOne thing I found odd at the time, but in retrospect it’s probably due to COVID-19 measures is that all the drawers were empty No city guide, no hotel directory, no pen and paper NadaOne aspect I really liked was the split-design trash can It had one side for waste and one for recyclablesNow the bum end of the visit The hotel has no self-service parking I had the choice of valet parking for $3750 (which I could bill to the room) or try my luck with a public garage two blocks away Valet it wasThere’s no complimentary breakfast There’s an on-site restaurant, but we didn’t use it

John Sandoval

To be honest, all Hyatt Centric places I have visited do not disappoint This is no exception The hotel service was excellent, the rooms are very comfortable and spacious

My only two complaints are no suitcase racks provided and the metro runs operates around the hotel My room was on the 7th floor and I hardly heard the metro My view of the state capitol was superb Thank you hotel staff for your excellent hospitality Definitely will visit again

This is not a bad place to stay at all The rooms are only cleaned if you stay 5 or more days because of Covid but you can request sheets and towelsThey took 5 weeks to decide to remove the taxes from my charges because I was traveling on government business which was a real difficult problem

The rooms are nice, parking is free, the morning breakfast is 1 star, the prices of the ice cream sandwiches are ridiculous

Kellie S

Clean, quiet and safe- all you could ever ask for in a stay They were having renovations done in the lobby at the time of my stay but no construction noise There was the faintest odor of fresh paint but it didn’t dissipate into the room

Friendly helpful staff and the parking lot was well-lit It’s a little difficult to drive to- you have to like make a quick turn before you are put back on the main street where you will have to make a U-turn and go back through the business park again Just a tidbit for the geographically challenged among us lolIt’s also right down the street to a shopping center with a wide selection of food offerings But the area does close up shop fairly early so get your foods before 8pm or so

raymond odele

Initially was so excited about my stay here, and all the receptionists were nice My rating was going to be a 5 star However I noticed the toilet bowl was never cleaned for the first 2 days, first time I’ve been to a hotel and cleaning isn’t thorough

Secondly, my soap cannister was empty on arrival, and thirdly, my room was not cleaned at all on the third day of my stay (even if I left as early as 8:30am and returned by 9:30pm) Who pays $200 a night to come back to an unattended room? This isn’t a malicious review, the hotel is great and is worth the google rating of 43 stars here, I do however feel there is some complacency creeping into their service accountability I never received a call from any manager, and when I tried calling to complain I was being tossed around I sense lack of accountability around I hope they learn and I hope anyone reading doesn’t have such an experience, because even a 2-star hotel should not have service accountability like that

First time we went to the spa it was great So I got my wife a gift card and she went to use it for a massage which should include jacuzzis and steam rooms They said due to covid she can’t use the facility

This is march 13 2022 All covid restriction have been lifted since February 16 2022 for Sacramento county They don’t want to refund the gift card

Amazing!! We received full body Swedish massages and they hooked it up with the oils and the aromatherapy (is also a dope option) 10 outta 10 customer service, massages and pressure, comfort, and just the over all vibe Felt like we were on an island

They got tea and chocolate too Oh laawwd!!! The stream room reminds me of that movie the fog, got a little nervous but my pores thanked me after Getting facials next month and another soon


After showing us where our locker rooms were, we were given no other instructions where to go, where to wait, what happens next as we were planned to have massages Having to flag the same attendant down and asking her where to go, she seem unenthused/annoyed and rude in her response The massages though were awesome and it was overall relaxing and enjoyable

Kenia was great After we returned to the locker room, other guests we’re being walked through and we overheard the same attendant going over everything, including where the showers were, saunas, bathrooms, where to go, what to expect etc It’s disappointing to know that other clients received better service than we did while we were here Walking out, I had asked another attendant what the other’s name was and she had asked me if there was any problems I let her know my concerns and she explained that the girl is new and probably had “nerves” Understandable I guess? But being new doesn’t give you the right to be snobby and rude I just hope this serves as a learning experience for next time if you want to keep guests happy

Let’s face it, if you’re staying here, it’s because of budget concerns That being said, the rooms are spacious and clean The bed in the room that I got was stiff and very springy, some might like that but it’s not my cup of tea

You will be in a bad neighborhood, but they do have parking lot security that makes their presence known Walls are not very sound resistant If you’re coming on business or traveling solo, it’s an acceptable place to stay I would not bring family

The lobby area was ok but the room that I got was dirty They don’t do a good with cleaning I had just checked in

It was around 5pm already when one of the cleaning ladies tried to open my door she must have a master key it was a good thing that I used the lock-lever on the door to secure the door from the inside When she couldn’t open the door she said something in Spanish and left The carpet is worn The elevator is old and shakes

Vladimir Gusiatnikov

This is a budget place Some Hamptons are fancier and this ain’t one Rooms are clean and well kept, showing some age

Beds are comfortable enough, pillows are basic If your room faces the freeway, you’ll get freeway sounds Unlike a previous reviewer, I didn’t find the neighborhood “bad”, it’s a working-class Sacramento hood, but then my tolerance is likely higher than that of most There is a sizable bank of EV chargers in the parking lot Some were ICEd out but not to the detriment of the several EV-owning guests Both of the two chargers I used worked in a straightforward way, price is $029/kWh I don’t know what the top charging speed is

Nice hotel and in an excellent location During the week it’s full of business people which adds to a relaxed and professional atmosphere At the weekend however, it fills with a younger, more party orientated crowd

Pool can become crowdedGym is great but is in a bizarre locationWe had to repeatedly ask to get our room cleaned which was a bit strangeStaff are for the most part friendly and helpfulWorth noting the bar shuts at 10pm

J Fang

My family and I stopped by to attend a graduation ceremony at the Golden 1 center The hotel was walking distance from the venue and had many great spots along the wayThe room was very clean, quiet, and we felt very secure throughout our stay

The staff was very friendly, welcoming, and helpfulWe had no issues with the parking, and were very thankful for the in and out privileges for when we had to make short trips

Thomas Novelli

A decent stay at the Hyatt Sacramento Service was great Vines restaurant was surprisingly fantastic

Bed was comfortable and the AC worked well Good views of the capital Fitness center is connected to the hotel but you have to go outside to access The wifi needs some significant improvement as it continually dropped throughout my stay Great location near the capitol building

This location was perfect for my stayWe went for a quick weekend away in Sacramento This hotel is minutes away from food and the metro line is on the other side of the free way

I was concerned that there would be a lot of noise at night since the hotel is right next to the free way However once inside you could not hear any noise from outside! The complimentary breakfast was amazing! And the staff are super friendly and welcoming! 10/10 would recommend a stay here!

Gregory Janssen

The staff is friendly, helpful, and competent My room was clean with a great mattress The common areas are kept very clean and neat

Getting on Hwy 50 is easy from its location There are restaurants, grocery stores, and pharmacies nearby It’s easy to get to Downtown Sacramento and Historic Folsom, including a light rail line to both nearby

Pleasantly surprised The managers and staff are so kind and informative Complimentary coffee, tea, and water upon arrival

I loved the large, mini studio room, comfortable bed, full length mirror, sofa bed, great shower head and temperature, the kitchen came equipped with all the necessities and an oven Breakfast was spectacular with fresh fruit, eggs, biscuits, waffles, oatmeal and more A very nice spreadThe pool was very small, not one I wanted to dip into But all else was a great experience

Heidi Bunch

I needed a shower for someone with disabilities The 2 rooms that were disability accessible were taken, but I was assured that the bathtub had handrails inside of it No it did not

It was also extremely loud from drunken neighbors who were awake through the night, talking, laughing, screaming and carrying on The problems surrounded me!! Upstairs and on either side of me were partying peopleThere’s a sheet of paper that has to be signed that informs tenants to keep noise levels down It was so loud that I wasn’t able to sleep at all and had a Dr’s appointment early the next morning I loved the big room It was clean and had a nice kitchen, but due to the other issues, I’d pass

Tom Graham

Not the greatest location and the appearance is little to be desired Could use a serious facelift makeover The gym was not available

The doors look like they’ve been broken into The employees were super friendly, courteous, kind, and professional The free breakfast in the mornings was great and much appreciated Rooms were spacious and clean although furniture could use modern upgrades Recommend for say construction workers, contractors, and or business professionals for long term stays and or just for quick business meetings like I was there for
