Valley Springs, California
Reviewed 6 June 2015

I needed a room for a few nights centrally located in Sacramento. The usual place we use around the corner was fully booked but this hotel was available, a very good price and well reviewed on Trip Advisor, so we booked a king room. The hotel is very conveniently located near the 5 freeway in the Richards neighborhood. It's also...

Beautiful hotel and room. Very spacious. Being a single woman on a business trip, I was a little uncomfortable with this area of town. Maybe because I had never been there, but it just appeared a little shady.

I would give the Governors Inn a 5 but they have one of the worst free "breakfasts" offered and they are letting the outside go. This is our go to stay in Sacramento. And the location is fantastic. A short drive to Old Town, The Capital and fun along the Garden Highway. We usually have a room facing the 5,...

There are quite a few comparable hotels in the area, but when it comes to the comfort of accommodations v price, this always comes out the ultimate winner. Larger rooms, comfortable beds and very quick check in process make it a winner for me in its class. Although this hotel is not located downtown per se, it's only 10 min...

The Governors Inn has nearly completed it's total remodel project which has come a long way since our stay here last fall. The new staff is very helpful and quite friendly. The attitude of "good service" is very prevalent with the front desk, but even with the security and maintence personnel also. Traditional continental breakfast complete with waffle maker is...

Stayed here twice now. Nothing wrong with this hotel. Hotel is located close to the American Bike Path. Once on bike path you can cycle all over the place. Sacramento is a good bicycle town.

This was a great deal for the price. The room was clean and the King size bed was comfortable. It was in a nice area, close enough for us to ride our bikes along the American River Bike Way. The con was no protein with breakfast (eggs, bacon, sausage, etc.). For breakfast there was a waffle maker, pastries, cereal, yogurt...
