      I love this property and try to stay here whenever I fly out of Sacramento International Airport. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. The property is clean, well kept, and organized. My favorite restaurant, Malabar which was walking distance from Homewood Suites closed due to the pandemic ...

            Very nice and clean rooms. The staff was super friendly and even made sure the 2 rooms I booked were next to each other. We accidentally thought check-out was later and overstayed but they were super nice about it when they came to let us know. Overall great experience, would definitely go back.

SO, those that showed 5 to 10 minutes early were stuffed into a small room to wait... for a lousy 5 minutes... enough time for everyone to expose everyone else to covid-19

                                          Overall great service and flight.

                                          It would be nice on a five hour flight to have movie options or at least the ability to plug electronics in to recharge.

                                          I wish the seats were wider, but I get it right? Plus the overhead lights were not RIGHT overhead....but the stewards were attentive, efficient, helpful and the flight airmen (women, i.e. the pilots) were great navigators and fliers esp given the turbulence and weather. Way to GO United!
