Before checking onto the motel I read some really poor reviews but I was in a pinch and decided to go for it anyways. When walking into the lobby I was greeted by a very friendly lady who made me laugh. She was so sweet. I checked in with a dog and to my surprise there was NO extra charge...

We stay here quite often and have never had a bad experience. The new manager is making a lot of changes to the place. They have been remodeling rooms and planting new shrubs and flowers. The staff is very friendly, they make you feel welcomed and right at home. The rooms are clean, beds are pretty comfortable and very quiet...

I stopped here on my way to Oregon with my daughter, age 9. We were so tired from driving, we didn't read any reviews and just wanted to sleep. I started to smell a musty smell, and regretted getting a room here right away. The carpets are so dangerous, think bumps and carpets that need to be stretched out. Old,...

Bad: We originally had booked two nights and called a week prior to change the stay to only one night. Upon arrival there was no reservation. Their employee forgot to change it so they no showed us. The manager upgraded us to the 'bridal suite' due to the error. However, this process of investigating what happened took a good 30...

i mdon"t know where Gary G. stayed, but it sure doesn't sound like the room 112 we had. My 6 year old grandson 's first remark when he came in the room was " This place smells." Yes, the room opened into the pool area, which was locked off all the way around. The pool hadn't been cleaned in ages,...

Hallway is scary and stinky! Room also smelled horrible. We went to Wal*Mart and bought febreeze and a candle! Air conditioner is weak. Bathroom smells like fish! Needs remodeled and deodorized. Bottom of the bathtub is powdery and gross!! Good location. The sheets and towels are fresh and clean!

I stayed in the Budgetel River Inn Motel for a week in May (2012). The room was great and specious. Everything was clean! The bed was grand, many hotel beds can be a nightmare! The staff members were friendly and inviting and most helpful indeed - there's a great cameraderie between guests and staff. Its location is also great as...

Right off of freeway, Room 112 was relatively quiet, access to pool, plenty of hot water, everything worked: refrigerator, microwave, cable tv. Fine restaurant next door and terrific breakfast down the street. Walk to rodeo and Sundial bridge, Botanical garden, Sacramento river trail. Signs of construction here and there, but plan to stay there again next year.

This hotel was gross! There were ants in my rooms, the lock on the patio door in my room didn't work, the pool which we were told would be useable had ducks living in it and duck feces floating in it. There was a bum laying under the stairs sleeping, fighting from other guests all night long and someone threw...
