This is a rather old fashioned hotel in its appearance, and it's not fancy in its decor, but it's a good value and offers an excellent location in terms of walking to the university or downtown. It was fine for a place to stay for a family visit. Pleasant staff, clean rooms.

There aren't a whole lot of options for hotels in Davis but this location is pretty ideal. Just a block from campus and 4 blocks from the main bars. They were redoing the front office, so it was a bit janky. I would recommend it!

We could walk to downtown and had a great evening at the Bistro - outdoor dining and a jazz duo. The University Lodge was recommended by staff at Best Western in Ashland, OR. Great help for finding a place for overnight off I-5.

The hotel location was perfect in Downtown Davis and convenient to University of California Davis. We enjoyed the local restaurants and Farmers Market. Hotel staff was courteous and efficient. Breakfast was convenient and satisfying.

Property is older but you would not know it. The rooms are pleasant, bed comforatble, very clean, fast internet, King room has balcony and chairs. The best part about this property is the price and location. Rates are reasonable and you can walk to University, Whole Foods or the quaint Davis Downtown with shops, reastaurants, book store, coffee shops,etc. Saturday... More

The room was small and cramped, no room for a roll-away bed, which we needed. We needed queen beds, but only the double beds were available and were too small for us. The mattresses were comfortable, though. Our son complained about the quality of the TV picture. They did have a grab-bar in the shower. The free breakfast was ample,... More

Hotel is pet friendly but a bit old. A/C very loud. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Close to UC Davis but still need a car to get around. Beware if you bring a pet. You have to plan out your day plan around the check-in and check-out time. Finding a nearby pet sitting service is difficult.

This location offers a place close to the Festival, you could actually walk from here to the venue. There are nearby restaurants which offer outside eating spaces under large, shade trees. The hotel is well cared for,... More

Super location. Big, clean rooms. But if you need to get on the road early, be forewarned- breakfast doesn't start until 7. Also the walls are thin. The front desk staff was friendly and efficient. Would definitely stay here again given the chance.
