La Quinta Inn Sacramento Downtown

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff, room and breakfast were very pleasing. Breakfast was much more than anticipated. Staff were all so accommodating.

Room was nice and clean. Other hotel areas were also fine with a decent breakfast. We only stayed one night as we drove through town so for our purposes it was ok but area is not nice and I would've been leery of walking to the AM/PM (which is right next door) if I had to go alone and it wasn't daytime. hotel was a washer/dryer but no change machine so we had to ask the front desk who was nice but had only a limited amount of change.

I liked the hotel it's not brand new but it's still in pretty good shape

Im not going to stay this hotel in the future Goodbye

The location is in a sea of homeless people who are everywhere. Also had sketchy people comeing and going all night. We think a drug or prostitution operation was being operated next door with noise and door slams till 3:00 am. I didn't feel safe. Left early for a flight. Prople in parking lot at 3:30 am just sitting. Gang graffiti on ice machine. Not good.

If the location and price and bed accommodations are your priority, then go for it. But if you have other options, I would avoid this hotel. The room was not vacuumed and had that old cigarette smell, although smoking is (supposedly) forbidden on the premises. Pet friendly, which unfortunately means human unfriendly. Bums around the property, pushing around their shopping carts and using bushes as bathrooms. Having breakfast available on the premises is nice, with a good selection (waffles, oatmeal, yogurt, cereal; bananas were available one of the three days we were there) but we were hardly able to enjoy it because so many others were staying at the hotel the breakfast was packed with kids so we had trouble getting a table and had to wait in line a long time. Small breakfast area not prepared for a lot of people to be staying at the hotel. Avoid the hardboiled eggs if you plan on being places other than the bathroom for the next hour. A barking dog was in the room next door. Abandoned, his owners were not there. Of course that is against the hotel's policy, but they did nothing to enforce it. We moved to another room late at night so we could try to get to sleep. Then police helicopter overhead for an hour, presumably looking for a prison fugitive around the premises.

The hot water barley worked in our room....asked for extra tows and sheets the maid had an attitude...

It was nice to be welcomed by the receptionist, who even if she was busy, took the time to acknowledge, our presence and ask us to please be patient since there were clients ahead of us. The room was clean and kept a a good temperature, ready to enjoy a good night sleep.

Nice, clean, upgraded porperty. Pillows were a little too fluffy for my comfort... other than that the place is priced well, good location

I could hear my neighbor through the wall while he was watching the game. Also, heard him get up in the middle of the night, pee, not flush or wash his hands, and then get back into the bed. I could hear the mattress as he laid down! They put me in a handicapped accessible room because I checked in early, there was NO showerhead on the wall, there was only a handheld nozzle. The cleaning staff didn't clean my sink and I was there for a week. Only reason I stayed is because I booked it through a third party vendor. The hotel is surrounded by homeless, but that seems typical in Sacramento. They weren't the problem, the hotel was!

primero la gente de la recepción muy amble y cortes, atención rápida y eficiente, mejor ubicación para nosotros no pudo haber sido, teníamos un fácil acceso al hotel de donde viniéramos como salir. los cuartos limpios y con buen espacio, camas muy cómodas.

Our experience has been very good since we have obtained what we need for this trip, take care of its quality of service which is very good

The staff was rude and unhelpful, except for one receptionist. First room we got, the tv was broken. The second room smelled of smoke and the coffee maker was broken as well. Many, many homeless around the hotel (and I'm from Detroit), bad neighborhood. Avoid like a bed bug!

Spotlessly clean. Nicely renovated. The problem was they didn't upgrade the plumbing. Shower was warm at best. Toilet was very slow, threatening to stop. Perimeter fence topped with concertina wire due to the homeless population of the area. Not the best experience we have had.

Near to downtown, very nice, very clean, a little noisy in night but the room so comfy!

Room comfortable/clean - staff helpful, friendly, good food (enjoyed morning free breakfasts)

Not professional check in. Otherwise hotel was ok.

Booked a non-smoking room and the front desk only had smoking rooms. The rooms condition itself was bad. There were chips and dirt on the bathtub. It's going to get interesting when the front desk lady says - call security if people get rowdy. And it was loud all night long. Would NOT recommend

On a business trip with a colleague. Excellent stay & good WiFi

I stayed at this hotel for four nights. The location was convenient and the staff was friendly. Breakfast was okay but on the busy days, they ran out of food.

paper thin walls with lazy cleaning crew

Where's the shower head?

I could hear my neighbor through the wall while he was watching the game. Also, heard him get up in the middle of the night, pee, not flush or wash his hands, and then get back into the bed. I could hear the mattress as he laid down! They put me in a handicapped accessible room because I checked in early, there was NO showerhead on the wall, there was only a handheld nozzle.
