Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cola4life Convenient location for Downtown Sacramento
When visiting Downtown Sacramento, I have a regular hotel I usually book, however I think that may have to change! This hotel was a great value and a convenient location. The staff went above and beyond to make my visit a wonderful one, they were incredibly pleasant. The only thing I could possibly complain about was the mattress I slept on as it was too soft for my taste; though anything other than my own bed usually is.

The Holiday Inn Express was a great choice for our getaway. The room was clean and included all the amenities to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfast was exceptional and the staff worked diligently to provide fresh and hot food for each guest.
The bed was a bit hard for my taste but there were plenty of pillows of various types.
Overall, a lovely time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Prevost R. Location is good for the prices
In general it was on average of what you would normally expect from a Holiday Inn Express. I've enjoyed the proximity to downtown and several good restaurant walking distance, if you search for them. The equipment in the Gym are recent and work all very well, lots of place to relax inside, either at the main level or chair on every floor by the elevators. Free parking for downtown, quite unusual but really nice bonus.
The room are ordinaire, the heating/cooling system in the room is quite loud. No pool (didn't really care about this) but no place to relax outside after a very busy day, unless you want to sit by the front door close to a very busy street. The WiFi always work, but the internet provider is very slow that is, if you can get on it.
All in all, if you need a place to be for business it's OK, but for family or vacations I would look elsewhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clovistraveler Very comfortable bed and excellent staff
Once I got in bed, I don't remember much else. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable as were the pillows. I normally have difficulty sleeping in hotels when I travel but not here. The hallways to the room as well as the exterior of the property could use some updating but overall excellent stay and excellent staff from check in to check out.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by George456789 Out-dated rooms, but good price point.
The HIE at 728 16th street, is a fairly small hotel that has good prices for rooms; however the rooms are outdated. When looking at the pictures on their website, the rooms look more updated then the reality once you get there. The ceiling's were popcorn style (the old style), the floors were a 70s looking wave, and the bathroom had a lot of damage and little maintenance, as well as looking like there was mold underneath the sink.
The mattresses were also old, and not up to the standards that I expect out of the HIE hotels; defiantly felt like I was getting onto a really firm box springs that had seem too many uses (which it probably was).
Besides the hotel needing a remodel cosmetically, the AC worked, the noise level was almost nothing, and the hot water worked flawlessly.
As a Platinum member, I was acknowledged that I was one at the desk, but they didn't ask about which bonus I wanted. When I asked again the next day, the front desk staff mentioned that they did ask; and would credit the 500 pts to my account.
During the stay, my vehicle was struck by another, the other driver left information, but the front desk staff only called the room phone, and not my cell. Since it was walking distance (4blocks) to the convention center, I had left my vehicle at the hotel and didn't realize the accident occurred until 6 hours later...
Food wise, the hotel has an ok breakfast (about what I expect for HIEs now; pancakes, biscuit, gravy, eggs, cereal, etc); and there is no in-house restaurant or room service. But there are a few food places within walking distance (4-5 blocks).
Overall, the hotel was a nice base that was close to the convention center for a reasonable cost.

The staff were excellent and the hotel was clean and modern. My room was up-to-date, clean and the bed was very comfortable. Hotel is a 5 minute walk to the convention centre and 5-10 minutes walking from the Capitol Park and numerous restaurants.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by StayAtAnotherHotel Lazy housekeeping
Housekeeping used the 5-minute presence of the do-not-disturb sign on my door (while I was using the bathroom) as an excuse NOT to clean my room.
It was lovely to come back to my room that night to find an unmade bed, wet towels, etc.
Management wouldn't do anything to compensate me for the lack of service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bobby the K Good Location. Good Value. No Pool.
We have stayed at this location multiple times because of it's central location and great value.
Good weekend getaway due to lower rates for weekend stays.
One drawback is that there is no pool for the youngsters.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keep Tahoe Blue Welcoming stay with very courteous service!
This was the first time we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, Sacramento Convention Center. Upon arrival, the front desk staff was extremely welcoming and most concerned that our stay was a fantastic experience, and it was!
The room was spotless and very comfortable. The maintenance department responded promptly, when we had a minor problem with the shower handle. The housekeeping staff was always cheerful and the breakfast buffet had very fine quality foods.
We highly recommend the Holiday Inn Express, Sacramento Convention Center, whether you're traveling for business or pleasure. Great restaurants are within walking distance as well as points of interest.

Super friendly and helpful staff. Room was good overall, and above-average for this type of hotel. Very convenient location, just close enough to convention center and food, amenities to walk, far enough away to be out of traffic and congestion (and high prices).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ursula35 GOOD LOCATION, ROOM NEEDS WORK
The location of the hotel is perfect. Right in downtown a couple of blocks from the State Capitol. The hotel is very nice inside, spacious, modern and the gated parking is a plus. In regards to the room, they need to improve 3 things: 1) the bed's mattress needs to be replaced (totally outdated#, 2) bathroom's fixtures #i.e. toilet paper holders, they were in really bas shape and were probably the original from when the hotel was built0, and 3) the CARPET NEEDS A DEEP CLEANING!!!. My kids were waking barefoot in the room and they ended up with black feet, really, BLACK feet in only 10 minutes of walking without their shoes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kate232705 Convenient for a stay in Sacramento
We spent the majority of our time at Raging Waters. We found the hotel convenient for our stay. We liked that we could walk to many restaurants so that we could enjoy a drink or didn't need to worry about parking the car. We were disappointed that they didn't have a swimming pool or offer peanut butter for breakfast - next time, we will bring our own.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Peter #2 Excellent Staff, but......
Staff at this hotel were exceptionally friendly and helpful, but it appears they are working with limited resources.
Not shuttle service (airport or local area) but willing to summon cab.
Hotel rooms maintained clean, but has feeling of older hotel. Air conditioning cycles on and off a lot, and when it shuts off it does so with a loud "clunk" - even at 2:00 am.
Breakfast choices were average.
Would recommend this property if you are a Holiday Inn person and the Holiday Inn next to Old Sacrmento is unavailable.

Our stay at this hotel was a great one! The rooms was clean and comfortable. The breakfast served was great and quick so I could get on with my day. The staff was accommodating and wanted to know if there was anything they could do to make our stay better. I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing to stay close to downtown Sacramento. The hotel was within walking distance of most of the thing we wanted to do.

The employees were very friendly and helpful, especially a maintenance worker named Johnny. The room was exceptionally clean. The breakfast was good. The only complaints I have is that people were outside very late and were fairly loud, talking and laughing. I enjoy swimming but there isn't a pool. I also think the price is a little high. I would recommend this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cheesemonger2 Nice room; sketchy neighborhood
While inside, I felt safe; once you walk out the door, beware, the neighborhood is sketchy at best.
When the front door to the hotel is locked at 4pm in the afternoon and you have to be buzzed in, you know there is a problem.
The room was clean, spacious but the halls smelled odd - not bad - some chemical that was unpleasant.
