Do not stay here - LOUD
Reviewed 11 July, 2021
I do not recommend staying at this hotel. The staff was great, but the pool was disgusting, and it was July in 106 heat. The vending and ice machines were out of order. There was constant yelling in the hallways and people hanging around the property grounds. There are no curtains, only wood shutters that are nice but do not block out light, so you never get a dark room. The only saving grace of this hotel is the staff. The rooms were clean.
The clientele was sketchy at best.
Worse Check In Ever

I can't tell you what I liked about this property since I was never given a room. When I arrived to check in the desk clerk said, "It looks like you already checked in." I told him that was impossible since I had been driving all day. He then said it appears somebody checked a person into my room using my name instead. I asked if they had an open room that the person in my room should be in and he said yes but he couldn't give me the room without his manager's approval and he was not able to reach her on the phone. This is total incompetency and Choice Hotels needs to look into this property.

Traveling from AZ to OR. Booked through Choice rewards. It was located off the highway and easy to find. It was inexpensive and pet friendly. That’s all the positives. The halls reeked of marijuana and my non smoking room smelled like someone had smoked cigarettes in it. A vagrant was lurking at the hall entry door which needed our room key to enter and followed us in. I asked him in which room he was staying and he said with a friend across from my room. He knocked on the door and then left. There is no pet relief area. The pool and lobby are closed due to Covid which is ok but the person taking the reservation should have mentioned this. Rooms are very small but seemed clean. Very creepy place
Noisiest motel ever.

The rooms open out to a long, echoey hall, with about 25 doors on each side. Each door closer is ratcheted up so tight, that every time someone leaves their room, the door slams, vibrating the whole floor. You can also hear every person who walks or talks in the hall. Walls are thin. Clientele is also the noisiest I have ever encountered. Not a place for peaceful sleep.
The Motel From Hell!!!

Had I been able to give this place a 0, I would have. Being unfamiliar with Sacramento and on a trip of 15+ hours, I had my wife use her Choice Privileges app to make a reservation at a property near I-5 as I drove. This happened to be the closest to I-5. Had it not been after 10:00 pm when we checked in, I would have demanded a refund and found other accommodations. This has to be the worst or 2nd worst property I've stayed in in over 45 years. And I have stayed in more than 150 different properties.
Ok, checking in was done through a window and a 'bank drive through' type drawer. I just thought it that way due to the late hour. Arriving in our first room, there was light coming through the shutters which could keep one awake at night. We also noticed the room was VERY dirty, even the floor. Then I noticed the lack of a smoke detector. I immediately returned to the check in window requesting another room.
Arriving in the second room, it also was dirty, but at least it had curtains to block the light outside. Returning to the car to retrieve our overnight bag, I saw how dirty the entire property was, and started taking pictures. We slid T-shirts over the bed pillows in order to rest our heads on something we knew to be clean. The inside of the coffee maker was encrusted with scale, the lamp shade was nearly shredded, the outside sidewalks and doorways were filthy.
Despite being extremely tired, neither one of us slept much and at about 5:00 am, decided to hit the road to get out of that slum (inside & our). Even though the Choice Hotels app said there was hot breakfast, there was no 'breakfast', we were told due to the Covid-19 virus. In fact, they don't even open the lobby, day or night.
My best advice for this place is to 'STAY FAR, FAR AWAY!!! My photos will tell the story.
