Our stay at the Holiday Inn in Downtown Sacramento was great from the moment we arrived to the time we left. When we pulled up the staff at the entrance was friendly and helpful. The woman at the front desk that checked us in was wonderful, wish I could remember her name. She was friendly and greeted me with a genuine smile and made sure I had all the information we would need for our stay. When I went back later to ask a question she greeted me by name and another smile. Later when we needed a cab the young man at the front entrance went out of his way to find the driver of the cab that was parked near the entrance. One of the great benefits of staying at this Holiday Inn was the location. Parking, dining, shopping and best of all Old Sacramento are all in easy and safe walking distance. Will never stay anyplace else when in the area.

Beautiful location, free parking is always better, and the room if possible a mini fridge would definitely be more accommodating

My wife and I booked this motel based on Travelositys web page that said that smoking rooms available. We opted for a smoking room. Upon arrival the the idiot at the desk said they were subject to availability and there were none available. I told the simp that we had reserved one and that if I'd have known this I never would have booked the room. When I spoke to another hotel employee later that day she told me they haven't had smoking rooms in two years. I understand that most of the population dose not smoke now but for Christ's sake I'm tired of being treated like a second hand citizen by business establishments like this. They also listed in room refrigerators and microwave ovens in the room, both of which were absent. It would have been nice to pull a cold drink out of the refer after walking around Old Sacramento in 97 degree temps but no way so we called room service for 2 double bloody marys which cost over $30 with the tip. They came with not a drop of alcohol and so much tabasco sauce that they were undrinkable. The only thing that was positive about our stay was the restaraunt . The food was good and the staff was very helpful and pleasant.
