Kid Friendly Sacramento Hotel: Best Western Sandman

Jared enjoys the Grotto, Best Western Sandman Sacramento

Yesterday we officially kicked off our Sacramento road trip.  My mom grew up north of Sacramento in Auburn California.  The grand daughter of a gold miner, she has unique insight into this area.  For many years I have dreamed of taking a trip up North to explore our mining heritage and to introduce the kids to all the kid friendly Sacramento attractions that I have visited over the  years .  I’ve been waiting and waiting for the little guys to be old enough to enjoy such a journey and we’re  finally here!!!!

My mom discovered a fun and kid friendly hotel about a 2o minute walk from Old Town Sacramento.  From the outside the Best Western Sandman looks like the classic 1960′s style motor lodge.    Behind  closed doors, the rooms are updated and spacious.  They include a microwave and refrigerator. The also have free Wi-Fi that actually works!  The hotel has a laundry room and a fitness room as well as a small pool. 

 The kids loved the “secret” gate that led out to the banks of the American River.  We all enjoyed a walk before taking a dip in the pool.

The Best Western Sandman serves continental breakfast including waffles.  The attendant was so kind, helping the kids get their food as I juggled the needs of  two hungry younsters.

Jared is still discovering new cool statues throughout the property.  I’ll take some  pictures of the more ambitious works of art (some  are two stories high), but here are two of Jared’s favorites.

Off to the train museum and Sutter’s Fort.

Happy Trails,


*Best Western Sandman did not provide me with anything complimentary.  In fact they don’t know I exist.  I just think that their hotel is great for families with kids.
