    « Not Up to Best Western's Usual standards »

    We stayed here for one night and requested a quiet room because of the freeway noise. I realize when traveling and choosing a hotel near the freeway there is the possibility of noise, but the noise in our downstairs room was excessive. The noise in our room sounded like the trucks were driving just past the door all night. We wound up leaving around 4:30 AM because we couldn't get back to sleep! The carpet was dirty, with stains in front of the couch from wine or something like that. Only amenities were 2 tiny, cheap bars of soap and one tiny bottle of shampoo. There were only 2 bath towels in the room so if you shower before bed and want to shower again when leaving, your towel was still wet! The ice machine in our wing was broken and I had to go to another wing just to fill the ice bucket. At over $100.00 a night this place should be better.

    « One night stay, some housekeeping issues »

    We chose this motel due to its proximity to the Sacramento airport because we were catching a flight the next morning. Far enough away to be reasonable and close enough for a short drive. The motel is a little older but appears to be well maintained. It sits back from the street so might be hard to spot on first look. Watch for a gas station/convenience store. Gas was 30 cents per gallon cheaper than the airport station in early October.There is also a pretty good restaurant between the gas station and the motel all in the same lot (dinner portions were large). The room was OK except for a few housekeeping issues. Do a thorough check of the room before you decide to accept it. I got a survey from Best Western about our stay and my response was more critical than this review but I am giving them the benefit of the doubt because I received a response from the general manager of the motel and it was not a robo-reply and the issues I reported were easily correctable with a little more attention to detail. I commend the staff for discounting the room at checkout even though we did not request it.

    « Cleanest hotel we have stayed in for years »

    Every detail taken care off to the nth degree. Nothing to complain about. Definitely recommend this hotel. Room was huge compared to most other hotel chains including a great work desk and a separate sitting area.

    « Dated room, drive by breakfast offering, but awesome staff »

    The room is dated, but spacious and clean. There's only a little diner nearby and breakfast was over by 9 am!?! If you plan to pack the car, do so after breakfast so you don't miss out!! Staff at the front were charming however. Pool looked awesome.

    « nothing unexpected, close to freeway, nice staff »

    stayed 2 nights for a business trip. they let me check into my room early and were very helpful with all kind of random requests like where to buy phone charger or new room key since i had locked myself out. gave me a 15% off coupon for a restaurant in town that was alright

    « Less than acceptable accounting »

    Best Western prides itself on promotions and rewards, but BEWARE! The rewards are often mysteriously lost or already redeemed and I have been left to pay an additional $50 per stay on three separate occasions. Their customer service representative fully understood my issue and offered no solution.

    « Close to SAC International Value »

    This is a Best Western that shows pride of ownership. Though initially hard to find it was well worth the effort. Very nice pool and spas and a decent restaurant on site. Close access to SAC International for travelers headed north by rental car allowed time for an early am start for my trip after arriving late at Sac.

    « Great location and awesome pool area »

    One-night stay on my way to Oregon. Two-story hotel with elevator. Large pool area and two spas. One of them which is separate from pool is extremely large. Rooms are larger than most hotels. Extremely quiet (never heard anything). Room equipped with all the amenities. Restaurant right next door to hotel; very reasonably priced. Hot breakfast is included at the Best Western. Although one reviewer mentioned cockroaches, I never noticed anything but cleanliness. Perhaps reviewer brought her own roaches (LOL).

    « Tacos for Breakfast. »

    We can only get these tasty jack in box tacos on the west coast so had to get them for breakfast. So good went back for more. Only 3 dots since this place seems old and saw homeless outside. Ate and made a run for it.

    « Good stopping point »

    Always stay here on my way north to visit family. Nothing exciting about this place. It's clean, well located with easy access to interstate but is not noisy with traffic. There is a restaurant in parking lot.

    « Nice play to stay for early morning drive to airport »

    It just so happened that Sacramento has yet to build any hotels truly close to the airport. There are a few in Sacramento, but it's still a 6 mile drive at a minimum. As I was looking, I found most of the hotels in Sacramento to be more expensive than I would like considering I had to be up very early to arrive at the airport for a 6 am flight. As I was searching, I found that this hotel was about 60-70 dollars cheaper, and wasn't really any more significant of a drive to the airport. It isn't the most beautiful when you pull in, though I found the actual room to be nice. The front desk staff was friendly and check in went quickly. The room was on the second floor, and I didn't have many complaints. The location of the hotel is a bit quirky, as there isn't much around. I decided to eat at the restaurant right next to the hotel, which was fine. It was also nice to be able to fill up my rental car at the gas station there and not have to worry about finding another one.

    « Awesome motel »

    One of the best motels we have stayed at. As close to perfect as I could imagine. Rooms have great lighting, a/c, I could go on. Only negative was no freezer in fridge. Staff super friendly and helpful. Pool and spa looked great. Sorry we didn't have time to use them. Even access to parking nicely thought out with ramps at all access points. Tv and Internet also good. We will be back and highly recommend.

    « All was good except for the breakfast! »

    We were heading home and tired so we looked online with BW for something not too far down the road. Reviews looked good so we booked a room for the night. It is right off the freeway behind a diner. It is older but clean! The lady at the front desk was very nice. We were upstairs facing the pool and thankfully they have an elevator. Our room was nice size and somewhat updated! It was very clean except for the carpet! Wifi was slow! Breakfast was not great. We actually went to McDonalds!!!

    « Barely Best Western »

    This place is adequate and we chose it because we wanted to avoid the hustle and bustle of Sacramento. We are members of Best Western Hotels and rarely have a complaint but this place is well below BW standards. The Woodland property is in a convenient location..beside Interstate 5.... The beds are uncomfortable, the room is clean but everything about the place screams "cramped" "cheap" and "old". This place is good in a pinch but I wouldn't stay here again if I could avoid it.

    « Great place to stay! »

    This is a very well run motel. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The room has everything you need. Flat screen TV, micro wave, mini-fridge, and coffee maker to name just a few. The court yard and pool are very inviting. Check out is 12:00 so we had time to enjoy the court yard and pool. The water was very refreshing and chemically well balanced. All of this is a result of good management. We will never see the Shadow Inn on Hotel Impossible.

    « Excellent for travel ball »

    This place has a great central pool that is great and the open atmosphere and rooms toward the pool makes for a great community fun time. Great size rooms, perfect for travel ball down the street on East St. Convenient Chevron and restaurant right next door.

    « Good motel »

    We usually choose this motel when we come to Woodland. While an older motel, it is in good shape, has good access on and off the freeway and is relatively quiet. There is a restaurant next door that we have used in the past occasionally, but others aren't that far away either (On Main St)

    « Woodland's other exit »

    This hotel is away from all the others, on the 2nd exit going North. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, always wearing a smile and it seems genuine. The rooms are very comfortable. Having 2 pool areas is wonderful. There were dozens of kids having a great time in the main pool area and we were able to go to the "other" Jacuzzi and enjoy the quiet. I think everyone had a great time. You should try this place!

    « Clean and comfortable! »

    This is the second time I have stayed at this motel and the rooms are nice, clean and the employees are very friendly and helpful! The breakfast food was very good and displayed nicely!.I would recommend this motel.

    « One Night Stay »

    I arrived early and Jessica (front desk attendant) was able to get me into a room quickly. I was very appreciative. The rooms could use some fresh paint and new carpet, but other than that the room was fine. It was very spacious. The hotel is located in the middle of nowhere next to a gas station and a Mom and Pop diner. It was cheap and not too bad, I was in town for a concert at Toyota Amphitheatre.

    « Clean Motor Inn »

    The Shadow Inn was a clean, basic stay. The management pictures on Trip Adviser do not do the Inn justice as they have since upgraded to a more contemporary decor. We stayed overnight and occupied the room for about 12 hours. The room was clean and functional for a family of four. We had the 2 queen non-smoking room. The WiFi functioned without a problem. The front desk was friendly and it took less than 5 minutes each to check in and check out. Parking around the Inn was abundant. The free breakfast was good. No hot food unless you use the waffle iron, microwave, or toaster but still very adequate. I believe we had microwavable breakfast sandwiches, waffles, oatmeal, bagels, coffee and juice. Overall, the Shadow Inn met our expectations of needing a clean rest stop for one night in Woodland.

    « Throw back hotel near the freeway »

    An older hotel with outside doors, surrounding a pool. Very well kept up though with easy freeway access and reasonably quiet. I would use this hotel again on other trips down I-5. Air conditioner struggled a bit and might be under sized when it has to combat 105 degree heat but by not the worst by motel standards. Overall of course it is about value, which the hotel provides.

    « Beautiful Pool, landscaping and property »

    The property is beautiful. The rooms facing the pool area are wonderful, especially on the second floor. The pool area is beautiful and impeccably maintained. The lobby is very classy and the breakfast is just enough. The rooms are cool, clean and very comfortable. We had plenty of space and comfort for all 4 of us. There was no noise from the freeway or community. Everything was lovely, thank you.

    « Nice One NIght Stay in Woodland - Best Western Shadow Inn »

    We stayed at the Best Western in Woodland for a night. We had a good one night stay. Our room was a King Size room with nice couch and sitting area. The shower room is separate from the sink. The desk area was nice with the electric plugs in a convenient place. We had a room on the 2nd floor. There are stairs.. There is also an elevator. Parking is free, The swimming pool and jacuzzi are nice size. The rates are very reasonable. They have a continental breakfast included. We slept in so dined at the restaurant within a couple of minutes walk from the hotel - Perry's Cozy Diner. There is also a gas station close by. Its also close to the water park in Woodland. Service was good. Overall, it was a nice one night stay.

    « Fine for a night »

    We stayed here overnight driving from Portland to So Cal, and it was fine for that purpose; the location right off the 5 is very convenient. Our 2 queen bed room was good-sized with a small bathroom; to my preference, the sink was outside the bathroom. Shampoo and shower gel are in a wall dispenser in the shower. There were two chairs and a table placed in an odd spot by the window, making it a little tight getting out of the bed on that side. Relatively quiet air conditioner worked well when turned down all the way; I used a phone book leaning against the curtains and window to keep the curtains from billowing up from the air blowing under them. This is an old-style motel with outdoor walkways and no elevator, which was fine with us, and the rooms are clean but old. Rooms facing the pool are probably noisy until it closes at night, but ours was on the outside and quiet. Mini-fridge made a slight trickling noise all night and it didn't have a freezer compartment, relevant if you are like us and trying to freeze ice packs for a cooler in the car. Breakfast is simple and free: waffles (and little packets of Nutella!), hard boiled eggs, instant oatmeal, cereal, pastries, yogurt, coffee & juice; I appreciated the friendly smile of the woman keeping everything stocked. This was a much less expensive place to stay than Davis, which we wanted to see, and only about 15 minutes away.

    « great value, great motel »

    I use the Shadow Inn as a destination get away for fun and sun when my sister and I need a break from the city and the fog. We are originally from Woodland so it is a treat to visit and go swimming in the pool. NO problems, just a nice time.

    « Nice stay »

    We had a good stay here. Rooms were clean and an elevator to our 2nd floor room was a plus (someone with a bad hip). Breakfast was good, a bit more than continental. The only reason it doesn't get a 10 was the girl who checked us in, I felt, was a bit rude. Other than that it was a pleasant, quiet stay and would stay again!

    « Great Hotel »

    I can't recommend this place enough to anyone visiting the area. When I first got there the staff was extremely nice and helpful. I had very comfortable bed the room was very clean & quiet, Would highly recommend the hotel for any one coming to the area.

    « Good budget place »

    Clean, relatively quiet, good parking, easy check-in, check-out. I would highly recommend if you are looking for an inexpensive, easy to get to location if you are flying out of the airport early in the morning.

    « Great Hotel »

    Hotel and service was great. We were there for a girls minor league softball. The girls had a great time and the staff was great. We will continue to stay and recommend this hotel for future softball teams to stay at also.

    « Safe and clean place to stay when in Woodland »

    We had a housekeeping issue but after talking to the manager it was fixed and the stay was great! The kids love to swim in the pool! The breakfast in the morning is great I only wished they severed until at least 10:00am. It's hard for us to make it down there by nine.

    « Best Western Shadow Inn, Woodland, CA »

    A great place to stay. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. I had a special need for help and they were more than willing and accommodating in helping me. The room was very clean and my bed was very comfortable. They are a great place for families to stay. There is a very good restaurant on site, as well as a Chevron station and convenience store. So, if you miss the free breakfast offered by the hotel, the restaurant has great food. I can highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Plus, it's extremely easy on and off I-5.

    « Woodland Stay »

    This is my first time at this location. I stayed at this property on my way home from a quick out of town business trip. I had no reservation and was able to walk right in a get a room at the last minute. The front desk was very helpful and check in went very quickly. The room was very nice, and even though it was near a freeway off ramp, quite quiet. I would definitely stay here again.

    « good »

    overall the best you can find in or around town. close to where we want to go. we come down to meet our kids that flay in from al. or Idaho. we really like to stay there.close to the smf. and sac. we don't have to stay in down town,but can get there in a few minutes.

    « Disappointed »

    Have normally enjoyed Best Western but this felt more like a Motel 6. Room was clean but carpeting was old, stained and starting to show wear. Ran the refrigerator all night but never got cold. Breakfast was disappointing, Belgium waffles, yoghurt, hard boiled eggs and some pastries. My biggest disappointment was the no pet policy and then not being able to get a refund because it was after 4:00 p.m.when we checked in

    « Great hotel, great value »

    We stayed here on our way up north. Nice hotel and the breakfast offered several choices like a waffle, yogurt, cereal, etc. The check-in lady was very pleasant which was welcome as we arrived very late.

    « Pleasantly surprised. »

    I stayed in they location because I was attending a wedding in Winters and flying into Sacramento. This was half way between them. I used apple maps to get there from the airport and at first I drove right by it because it's set back from the street. Woodland is a farming community and there were grain silos across the street. This place is really on the outskirts of Woodland and when I saw the grain silos I thought it was going to be a dump - but I was way wrong. The young lady at the counter - her name began with an "X" was very friendly and helpful. In fact all the staff were very friendly and help full. There is a nice clean pool and two Jacuzzis in the courtyard. The room was very clean and good sized. The room temperature was easily adjustable and overall everything was very comfortable. The room came equipped with a small frig, a micro and iron with board. You're just off the I-5 with a little family diner within walking distance. The downtown of Woodland is about 10 minutes away and very inviting. I recommend this place to anybody.

    « just ok »

    dinning area was very small and food wasn't worth waiting for someone to finish so you can take a seat. also we were kicked out of the pool area because other families had loud kids swimming so everyone had to leave. did I mention we had NO KIDS in the pool area? really??

    « Clean and friendly with nice pool and two hot tubs :) »

    Had an early morning job in Woodland, Ca so thought it best to stay the night before. This hotel was conveniently located just off of I-5 and 5 minutes to the downtown area where all the restaurants are. The staff was very pleasant and helpful at check-in. I had many questions regarding location of the room as we wanted quiet to sleep, not party by the pool! She let me go and look at the rooms and accommodated my many questions with a smile. We stayed in a inside rooms facing the pool/courtyard and with the AC on all night really didn't hear anyone walking by or the ice machine our room was close to. We had a lot of work things we didn't want to leave in the car as it was 100 degrees so we were happy to know they had an elevator. This is an older motor hotel that they've done updates with such as new large flatscreen the tv's with clean remotes and updated bed linens. The furniture and lamps could use a a style update but for just being there a brief amount of time, it was just fine. The room has a fridge, microwave and a coffee maker you can get hot water from if you travel with a pour over and your own coffee :) We found delicious food downtown and would stay here again if work brought me back to this area. The price was also very good for the room we got.

    « Short stay »

    Well kept grounds. Nicely furnished room. The air conditioner worked well. Had a firm bed. The Staff were very pleasant. Breakfast good. The Pool area really nice. Definitely Worth it. Close to downtown.

    « Familiar hotel - great value »

    Have been staying here for years for soccer tournaments in Davis. Kids love the pool and hot tubs and parents enjoy the patio for hanging out. Rooms are adequate and clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. Downtown Woodland has some hidden gem restaurants and quaint period architecture.

    « Great stay and value »

    What a great place to stay! We were flying the next morning so we wanted to find a reasonable hotel and found this gem. We really appreciated how clean everything was and how helpful and friendly the staff were. The price was very reasonable, which we especially appreciate when we are traveling through and just sleeping and going on! So nice to have a great variety for breakfast, especially appreciated the protein options, peanut butter, hard boiled eggs, yogurt. We will definitely be back!

    « We would stay here again »

    This was a good value for what we recived. The motel is older, so the rooms are large. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast items were plentiful. However, there was neither a hot egg or meat selection. The room was clean. But, there was a corner of the shower curtain that had black mold. The towells and bedding were like new. Only, the bed seemed a bit hard and lumpy.all of the pillows were lumpy. Time to replace.

    « Constant Stay »

    This motel is a leisurely one day trip from Orange County, CA and is above Sacramento. The motel has been remodeled in the last several years so everything is nice and there are excellent restaurants in old town Woodland. The breakfast has a good selection to start the day. Staff has always been pleasant. Have stayed there for the last 5 years every time we travel north.

    « good overnight »

    A short stop on the way north. Great service, at check in the clerk gave us discount card for a local restaurant, Mojo's. Very good, great value plus 15% off the bill. Enjoyed our stay, old room, but well done, comfortable bed, super clean facility.

    « Pleasant stay »

    I was attending a class on a Friday at a Doubletree in Sacramento. My brother lives in Woodland so I drove up Thursday evening and had dinner with him. The room - nothing special - was clean and comfortable and I always appreciate a refrigerator and microwave. I never ate breakfast there because I had other plans both mornings. The trip to Sacramento on Friday was relatively easy - the trip back to Woodland Friday evening a b____ - as always on a Friday. Breakfast at Perry's, the diner in front of the motel with my brother Saturday morning was satisfactory. I had stayed at another motel in Woodland and this location was far better and the room more comfortable. I will stay at this Best Western from now on. It's clearly popular with construction workers and truckers but noise was never a problem. The desk staff was very accommodating a couple of times. I recommend it!

    « A nice place to stay and convenient to the airport »

    Helpful people, clean room, comfy beds, and attractive grounds. Breakfast was not extensive -- I'd say deluxe continental -- but I appreciated that the gluten-free items were clearly marked. I also really liked the paintings in the rooms -- they were pretty and restful. The pillows were a little too poofy for my taste, but probably OK for most people. A good place to stay if you are flying out of Sacramento. Very pleasant. If I was ever in the area again, I would probably stay here again.

    « Nice rooms, courtyard, and pools. »

    Nice rooms but the refrigerator didn't have a freezer and they didn't have a fitness center. The breakfast starts nice & early (5:30) but also ends pretty early (9:30). The location is adjacent to Highway 5 and business 113 so there is a lot of traffic noise unless you get an interior (courtyard) room.

    « Good Springtime value! »

    I stayed here in April 2016, and was pleased to be offered a rate around $80 per night. The room was medium size, clean and everything was in good condition. They gave me a room on the corner, where it was safe to run my cord; so I could charge my Chev Volt hybrid overnight. One thing I like about Best Western, is that card points do not expire, (many other lodging chains do expire) and they add a few extra, if one is a AAA member. This one was fairly quiet and has an inexpensive restaurant, place to get fuel and convenience store all on site. They do have a fairly nice breakfast, with more toppings available, than often offered. I do wish they also had a breakfast coupon for the restaurant, maybe during the off peak season, like some other BW inns. I had a restful and enjoyable stay!

    « Not fancy but overall good »

    My husband and I stayed here while traveling. It was close to the freeway so was very convenient. There was nothing overly fancy about the room. We had a room with 2 queen beds and found it a bit crowded, but for one night it was fine. The room was clean although the shower showed a little wear and tear. . Bed and pillows were decent. The breakfast runs 5:30 to 9 every day of the week and had eggs, sausages, waffles as well as the other usual fare. The whole hotel was not smoking and also didn't allow pets -- which is a pro or con, depending if you're traveling with a pet. It was a good value for the price.

    « Woodland Best Western »

    A basic Best Western, nothing fancy, clean, comfortable, the restaurant out front is a real sleeper, excellent prices, quality food more than you could eat. Motel should make a deal with restaurant for hot breakfast.

    « scottish games host hotel »

    Great place to stay for the Games. Lovely hotel comfy rooms. close to fairgrounds, Nice restaurant in the parking lot of the hotel offering all types of food for all meals. Great pool and hot tub. Beautiful gardens, flowers were lovely.

    « Very nice room! »

    The room was very large with a small couch and two padded easy chairs, plus a desk and chair, plus a small wet bar with sink, micvrowave and small fridge. The only disappointment was no freezer in the fridge. All-in-all, a very nice room.

    « Comfortable »

    Staff at check in was great. Courtyard is real nice. I wish I had time to try the hot tub but we were only there one night. Wifi was song and reliable. Close to food. Very nice breakfast. Coffee was better than most hotels I recommend this BW

    « Great choice »

    We always love staying there when visiting our uncle. The staff is friendly and service orinented, the grounds are always beautiful and they have a good breakfast offering. I would highly recommend this motel.

    « The Shadow Experience »

    One of the best Best Westerns in California, prefer the inside courtyard deluxe rooms, It's a very nice hotel !! If you have a chance while driving up I5 or ever can't find a motel/hotel in Sacramento this is the place to stay..The Town of Woodland has a number of very nice, quaint restaurants and a new courthouse --- wow! PTM

    « Vacatio »

    Room not acceptable. No control for Shower head and curtain too flimsy so water everywhere. Tub slippery. Uncomfortable bed and pillows crowded room. Control for tv did not work properly. Desk reluctantly gave us a different one. Receptionist did not know how to connect to Internet on the guest computer in lobby. Recommend Pete s pizza was not good. Thick crust and not done. Have stayed here in the past and was ok but will not stay again. Manager said she would not give us any compensation. Friendly staff but not working for guest to be sure we return.

    « Great staff & experience »

    Hotel was very clean, staff was exceptional, room met our needs and was comfortable. We were moving from AZ to Oregon and had a huge moving van w/trailer and they made it so easy to park the vehicle in a safe place so we could relax. Nice little restaurant next to the property made it even better. Would certainly stay here again.

    « Great »

    The staff at breakfast was great, they played with my son so we could finish eating and they allowed him to have a mini tour of their work station. Great room, comfy beds, good breakfast. Was glad they accomodated us being close to our car. Wish we could have enjoyed the pool, we were right next to it, but it was too cold. The extra counter space for food was great and the room was very spacious. Double deluxe room.

    « Awesome hotel stay »

    Lobby, grounds, pools and room was very clean and well kept. Quite nights rest even though I-5 on ramp was in near by proximity. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to family and friends. Lots of dining choices in downtown Woodland very close by.

    « Tired and worn »

    The location was perfect (just off I5) but it was an industrial area with no amenities close by within walking distance. Rooms were very dated as was the furniture. There were stains on both chairs in our room and the lack of blankets on the bed was unusual. The pool area is lovely.

    « BW Shadow Inn is Great »

    I have stayed at the Shadow Inn 8-9 times. Right next door is Perry's and a Chevron station. The staff has always been great. Sometimes the pool is cool...but I swim anyway. Nice rooms. wireless up to snuff. Stay there, you will be back.

    « Pleasant, helpful staff »

    We had a very good one night stopover. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, the room was clean with all the needed necessities. The bathrooms are a tad tight, but we managed. Overall a very good stay, we would stay here again!!

    « meh »

    Another typical Best Western. A little dirty, a little run down. Nice Staff. Bad but free breakfast. Ugly decor and uncomfortable beds but I earn points for free stays. So I keep using BW for business.

    « Pleasant one night stay. Breakfast is extremely basic. »

    Friendly and clean. All you need for one night on a road trip. A bit of highway noise. Breakfast is extremely basic with no protein other than hard boiled eggs. Woodland is a charming city. Recommend Dutch Bros Coffee about a mile away.

    « Great mid way stop on the long I-5 between Seattle and San Diego »

    Second time staying here and it lived up to expectations. Only reason for 4 out of 5 rating was that the price on line was less than the price when we pulled in. Didn't have much choice in paying the higher rate, it was evening when we pulled in without a reservation. Room was large, beds comfortable. Had microwave and refrigerator. The bathroom had a large counter to spread toiletries on. Only one outlet for bathroom, but the provided hairdryer was wired in so both outlets were available. The toilet and tub are in their own room. The sink area was basically a part of the room, so no privacy at the sink. With all our electronics, we didn't have enough outlets. Hazards of older properties. Breakfast was good. Waffles, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, single serve fruit cups and the usual pastries and breads and bagels. Small eating area. We traveled with an ice chest and had some lunchbox ices packs and frozen items. Gratefully, we were able to put them in the hotel freezer for the night. Our room was on the second floor and on the back side away from the freeway. It was a very quiet unit so it was a good night sleep for a light sleeper. Hotel is close to freeway exit, so easy access on and off of I-5. Didn't use the pool or hot tub, but it's sheltered with the rooms all around it, so it probably isn't windy there. NIce staff in the evening for check in, and in the morning of checkout. We will be back.

    The room was clean and updated, the grounds were maintained, the staff was exceptionally friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. For the price, this was a good place to rest for our trip,about the halfway mark. We visited old town Sacramento, nice to stretch your legs and walk around. Oh yea, the ice cream was good

    Decent budget hotel in Woodland. Good value. Rooms are quiet big. Bathroom was OK. Breakfast in the morning was ordinary. Staff was courteous. There is a pool and a hot tub available at the property. OK option if you are in the area.

    « All we look for in a BW facility. »

    Shadow Inn had everything we look for in a Best Western hotel, 2 out of bathroom sinks with counter space seating in front of tv for eating micro and fridge exterior corridors providing close parking on ground floor. comfortable king bed in spacious room.

    « Very Clean and Beautiful Motel »

    This motel is fantastic. Staff is very courteous and helpful. Grounds and impeccable. Rooms are so clean and comfortable. The only thing I suggest to the hotel is build a workout/exercise room. They do not have a workout facility or room. The Cozy Diner (Same parking lot) has wonderful food and follows the hotel with regards to cleanliness. An upscale Denny's, but 10x better and cleaner.

    Wow! I was thinking this place was going to be just the ordinary Best Western that is sometimes run down. I was totally impressed. Very clean rooms and friendly people. I could not find one thing to complain about. I even brought my own pillow but ended up using their pillow because they were so much better.

    Great service from front desk to check out. Clean. Inexpensive and quiet. Just an overall good stay for the money. We encountered ZERO problems and the front desk girl even had a wine key for me! (thank you)! The bed could be slightly more comfortable for me, but it wasn't bad. Also, I like more covers - bedspread too light weight for me. But, overall GREAT room for the money. THANKS

    The customer service was fantastic...very friendly and helpful. But the walls were SUPER thin and I literally could hear the conversation in the room next door. Also, there seemed to be a lack of electrical outlets. Low rates. Breakfast had a good selection.

    « Great Hotel »

    We've stayed here many times and have never had a bad experience. Everyone at the front desk is always very helpful and kind. The room is clean and comfortable and it is affordable. The breakfast is always stocked and there is always something there that my boys love.

    « great value »

    This is a very nice clean motel with a heated swimming pool and spa. Rooms are ordinary and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast is served until 9am and is good. In room internet is available. Staff is friendly and helpful. Price is great.

    « Quiet and Friendly »

    Lovely ranch-style architecture and exquisitely maintained facility made for a delightful visit. Off the freeway but very accessible with easy on and off which made our overnight a quiet and serene experience. The allergy-free room was very clean and tidy with no hint of animals, smoke or cleaners. A Cozy Diner next door had great broasted chicken for dinner and the breakfast room is fresh and clean. No hot breakfast like some places, but lots of other choices for hungry travelers. Very nice accomodations!

    « Overall »

    The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was extremely small and the bathroom was really small. The location of the room, exterior 1st floor was very close to heavy truck noise which was rather distracting.

    « Recent trip »

    Easy access off of I-5. Large comfortable room. Free WiFi. Very attentive and accommodating staff. Reasonably priced. I and my wife have stayed at this location on numerous occasions and have always been satisfied with the service they provide.

    « Easy access from 5 freeway »

    This is an older hotel but my room was comfortable and clean however the furnishings are old. The best rooms face outside as the pool are can get very noisy ! The breakfast area is very small with a bad selection of items, however there is a diner next door if you want a cooked breakfast !

    « Clean comfortable rooms, great staff »

    The room was great, clean, comfortable, nice and quiet. We heard no outside noises at all. Staff was friendly without over-doing it like some places. Helpful with giving directions to stores that we needed. Efficient check in and out.

    Clean, comfortable and spacious Typical amenities, with a so-so breakfast included. Plenty of parking for large rigs. (we were delivering 2 trucks north) Most of the motel staff were very accommodating. We reported a problem with the drains in our room (water up to your ankles when showering) to an older woman in the morning, but she had an "ol well" attitude. A very nice family style restaurant next door with a varied menu and friendly staff.

    « Great place to stay »

    Stayed at this hotel due to its closeness to the airport. It was very clean and comfortable. I loved the bed. Ate at the diner in front of the hotel, the food was pretty good. There is also a gas station right next to the hotel for convenient fill up before taking off on the rest of your trip.

    « Great for close airport access »

    I chose this hotel due to its location. I wanted to be near the Sacramento airport for a morning flight. The hotel staff was very friendly and the room was clean. Downside: the bathroom. It was very small. The sink/counter is seperate (out in the room) and the shower/toliet are in a room the size of a coat closet, literally. The location is great for airport access, but I probably won't stay again due to the bathroom.

    « Good value »

    My friend and I got a good rate on this hotel; it was clean, quiet and well maintained. The bed could have been a bit softer and the breakfast a little more substantial, but for the price I have no complaints. The location is good and the staff was friendly. Would definitely stay there again.

    « Great stop over !!!! »

    Great location and staff. Walking distance to one of the best restaurants for family style comfort food. Plenty of parking and lighting for night time security etc. The early continental breakfast was fresh and was well serviced . Hot eggs and a breakfast meat would have made it an unbeatable value.

    « Nice place »

    Nice place, older hotel, but nicely maintained and close to Sacramento Airport but without the huge cost. Clean rooms, nice hot tubs. Close to food and Steve's pizza, recommended by the front desk.... supper!

    « Mixed Reviews »

    This hotel has an excellent location for an overnight between northern California and points south. But it is right off I-5, so take care to select a room on the interior courtyard. The room was a good size and had an effective layout. The outdoor pool was welcome in the 100-degree temps. Staff are friendly and helpful. But hygiene needs some work. There was a child wearing diapers in the pool and in the jacuzzi -- that ended our time there. Later, at breakfast, at least one guest was barefoot in the dining room. These health issues would probably keep us away next time, despite the good location and nice staff.

    « Clean and Friendly »

    From the moment I arrived, until the moment I left my experience was wonderful. Very clean rooms, well maintained and pretty landscaping. Breakfast choices were good. Pool area is very pretty. Staff, and I mean everyone was professional, kind, and friendly. I plan on staying here for my many trips I will be making to Davis the next 4 years.

    « Good experience. I'd stay here again. »

    The courtyard is nicely landscaped and adds to the positive experience of staying at the hotel. Rooms are clean. Decor is pleasant. The staff is friendly. There is some noise from the nearby freeway which can be avoided by turning on the air conditioner. The pool is very small. For the price, I would certainly return for another stay.

    « typical of BW properties »

    The good thing is that this property is typical of BW properties, so you know what to expect. I do not recommend the restaurant next door, and I do not recommend the hotel on the far side. This BW is the place I would recommend if you are staying in Woodland.

    Much nicer than what I was expecting, given the location. (Woodland can be a little sketchy) Good service, nice room, good price. Overall no complaints. Breakfast could have had healthier options I guess (I would have liked eggs and bagels) but there was a variety of tasty donuts and oatmeal, and fruit.

    « Clean room, attentive staff, good breakfast, safe area »

    We were very pleased with this hotel. The staff was attentive and courteous, the room was clean and comfortable, the complimentary breakfast was tasty and offered a nice variety of items. Lastly, and most important to me, the hotel was located in a nice area so I didn't worry about my family's personal safety or the safety of our car in the parking lot.
