I have not stayed at the Sacramento Hostel. However it is only three blocks from my son's house in downtown Sacramento and one day I decided to visit. While I was there I spoke to young man from Toronto. He indicated that he really liked his dormitory style room because it wasn't crowded at all and the hostel treats all of its guests well. He is on a trip through the Western United States and felt that this one of the best hostels he has stayed in.
The inside of the hostel has a series of charming public areas. A large sitting area and a breakfast area are set out in Victorian period style. A wonderful wrap around porch allows guests to sit out on the porch and relax.
The hostel occupies the original home of Lew Williams, a Maine Native, who came to California in 1850 to make his fortune in the gold fields. While Williams was unsuccessful as a 49er he became a very successful businessman. In 1885 his Italiante Stick Style Victorian mansion was completed at a cost of $ 16,000. While there were many owners in between, after a group of landowners donated the mansion to the Golden Gate Council of Youth Hostels in 1988, and the house was moved across a street, the hostel opened to the public in 1995.
The hostel offers rooms in a dormitory style setting from $ 28 to $ 32. Rooms sleep eight people and there are shared bathing facilities. There are also a group of approximately eight private rooms that vary greatly in style and cost between $ 55 to well over $ 100 a night.
The most unique aspects of this property is the stunning building. The hotel is one of the finest examples of Italianate Stick Style architecture on the west coast. The public areas downstairs are very welcoming. The location at 9th and H Street is perfect for accessing all of downtown Sacramento's attractions.
Sacramento is one of those towns where prices on hotel rooms drop significantly on the weekends. So if you are looking to save a few bucks either on passing through or looking around town for a day you should consider staying at the Fairfield Inn in Rancho Cordova. Fairfield Inn is one of the brand lines of Marriott Hotels. Room accommodations are nice clean rooms with generally friendly staff. For $ 59 or about 47 euros you can get a king size bed with breakfast in the morning. Try to get a room on the street rather than freeway side to avoid the noise. There is also a great fitness center with new equipment on the facility and a small outdoor pool and spa.
I have stayed in this hotel many times and recommend it as a good and inexpensive place to stay. On weeknights rates are considerably higher but the room rate includes a managers reception every night with free beer, wine and a light snack.
Nice quiet rooms, good free breakfast and a price that can't be beat in the area on weekends.
Suites are large but motel is very dated and rough looking but clean. Towels were thin, not very good quality. Flat screen TV. Coffee maker leaked and did not function. When we reported the problem we were told housekeeping would bring another one up but it never appeared.. Breakfast was included and was fairly large assortment including scrambled eggs, bacon and potatoes. Staff was friendly. Free USA Today newspaper. The only real reason to stay at this inn is their offered Park and Stay Package (standard room rate) which includes extended parking and airport shuttle. If you do not need that, you should be able to find a nicer hotel in this price range without much effort.. There was work being performed on lobby renovation so perhaps rooms will be redone in the near future.
extended parking and Airport Shuttle
walkable from Amtrak, a few blocks from the Shopping Mall and nightlife along K street
away from the noise of K street or Old Sacramento,
two blocks from Cathedral of the Blesses Sacrament
This Ramada Limited Hotel is situated very near downtown, just off the freeway. I was searching for a hotel that has reasonable rates with a swiimming pool, hot tub, and complimentary breakfast. This turned out to be a good find as my room with king size bed cost 50 dollars a night and was found to be clean and quiet. There are restaurants next door and across the street is a Mc Donalds for people who have children.
Old Town Sacramento is about 5 minutes by car away.
Use the internet to get the cheapest rates.
50 dollars a night
Close to Freeway, Old Town
This is hard to believe but this hostel is actually the LLEWELLYN WILLIAMS MANSION, a beautiful example of a gold rush era mansion. This historical mansion was built in 1891 and has beautiful sitting rooms, stained glass skylights and carved stairways. I can't imagine a nicer hostel. It's located downtown on the corner of 9th and H Street (925 H Street)
Private rooms for couple/families are available.
62 dorm beds
5 private rooms
$22 per night for dorm room and between $54 and $69 for a private room (see photo)
I have not stayed there myself but I did visit the hostel and was given a tour by a very pleasant desk clerk. One does not need to have an international hostel card to stay there and they do accept families.
Beautiful setting; private rooms; friendly staff
Very clean; nicely decorated room.
Similar to a bed&breakfast place but much, much less expensive
No Curfew. Open from 7:30am to 10:00pm.
Nice kitchen for guests, dining room and living rooms.
Fully equipped and spacious self-service kitchen
Dorm rooms and private accommodations (single, double or family)

After-hours access for registered guests
Groups day use, accommodations and meeting rooms

Not absolutely perfect, but if you don't want to spend a fortune going to KOA, I would go here. The service is very nice at the manned facilities, so I would go there.
Nothing special, but a good one nonetheless.
If you're going posh, the Sterling Hotel is the best bet. It is absolutely beautiful and is located in a great part of town, away from the heart of downtown but close enough to everything to take a long stroll down the tree-lines streets or a quick cab ride. It is a sprawling white victorian with a well reviewed fine dining restaurant.
Sorry to say I don't know much more about the place other than how it looks, being that my 'accomodations' are across town on the other side of 'the grid'!!! I would imagine that it is fairly expensive.
Sacramento has a really pretty hostel and every time I go by I am suprised at how nice and clean it is. Often hostels are located in less than desireable buildings or in scetchy nieghborhoods, but this one looks great. I have never stayed there of course, but I have dropped off people whom I've met who were staying there and they seamed really pleased with it. It is in a lovely old victorian in a central part of town. You can easily walk to restaurants and bars and if you're feeling ambitious, Old Town is only a mile or so away.
Camping or Houseboat. That's it. Campsites have firepits, but no running water so make sure to bring lots of supplies.
the Sterling Hotel is my favorite hotel. It is in the heart of downtown but is beatiful and the service is great
I believe it is around $150 a night. Alot of the rooms have jaccuzzis and each room is a different size.
