... his two daughters, Sophia & Lily (starting out tomorrow early). They'll all be staying @ our motel near the state park. They hope to do a bit of sightseeing along the way - including Mt. Rushmore. Wow, are they going to have tired butts by the time they arrive in Michigan! Staying @ the same motel as ours will also be Janell & Rich and Jim's cousin, John & his entire family ...
... a film explaining the discovery of gold the formation of
the town. We wandered around the town which had several period buildings, a functioning blacksmith shop and a recreation of the saw mill near which gold was discovered. After a picnic lunch we headed north on CA Rt. 49 to “Nevada City” an old gold mining town where we strolled Main Street of the historic district and did a little shopping.
... the wooden sidewalks past the
beautifully restored store fronts containing restaurants, bars, ice cream parlors’, candy stores clothing stores and souvenir shops. We also walked down to the river where there is a paddle wheel boat that is now a combination restaurant, bar and hotel. It was an enjoyable afternoon.
... when we were on the cruise portion ... the ship had very slow internet access and it was expensive. For this trip, it looks like we will have free Wi-Fi available at all our hotels and on the boat as well as at Bill's apartment. I am hoping that I can therefore keep up this blog in a timely manner and share our adventure with you all. China does restrict some internet activity so I have my fingers crossed that I will have access to the blog and can post. ...
... items were even cheaper than what we were paying in Minnesota. Amazing! We spent a day doing the scenic drive and started out early that a.m. and got to see a huge herd of Elk, as they were moving from the lowlands up to wherever they go during the day to hide from the tourists. We also attended an evening program – it was a talk on Sacajawea. The speaker was a local kid’s author, so his talk was mainly oriented towards kids, but it ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Sacramento-Capitol Plaza
We stayed here for 3 nights in Feb 2005 and really enjoyed it. Having never been to Sacramento before, we came to attend a wedding reception. Location was great so we decided to skip a rental car. Steps away are a shopping mall and the Old Sacramento area. I know the other reviews mentioned this - but I was still shocked that these were both right outside the door of the hotel. We didn't have much time and wanted to pack a lot into a couple of days. Hotel was an easy walk to the capital building and other downtown sites. Hotel is also only a couple of blocks to the Amtrak station - so it was perfect for us to hop on a train to go to San Fran for the day. And also a bonus, if you are a runner, there is a fantastic trail steps away - starting in Old Sacramento. I ran by myself both days and there was a decent amount of runner / biker traffic - not enough that it was 'crowded' but enough that it never felt 'unsafe'.
I've stayed at this hotel a number of times. It's adjacent to a nice shopping mall and an easy walk to Old Sacramento with a lot of fun places to eat and shop (and a good rail road museum).
The rooms are typical Holiday Inn. The hotel is on the older side. I usually stay for work and its fine for that (very convenient and easy to slip in a little shopping.
I stayed at the Holiday Inn Capitol Plaza for 5 nights on business, and I will never go back.
Very nice hotel.
Got this for $55 on Priceline for August 28, 2004 for 1 night. Very nice hotel. Whole floor was non-smoking so no smoke leaked in. Parking was $12. Breakfast buffet was mediocre. The food was cold when it should have been hot.
Smokeless in Sarcamento
Only stayed for a night on a business trip but found everything very acceptable. The rooms were fine no smell of cigarettes on the 15th floor at least. Bathroom was fine but water pressure was on the low side (maybe because we were on 15??). They offer you a free cocktail if you join their priority club on check in and we took them up on the offer and weren't short measured but the wine was on the pricey side, surprising as you are in CA and are surrounded by the stuff. We booked in advance and paid $129 including breakfast and dinner, later found the walk in rate was $109. Oh well dinner was fine even though we weren't expecting too much it was a nice meal but we did have to pay extra as the dinner offer only covers you for $12.99 per person. We would stay there again for sure.
The Holiday Inn Capitol Plaza Sacramento is located in the Heart of Sacramento in the city's best location, 1 block from I-5. It is on a pleasant park-like pedestrian mall that runs between Old Sacramento and Downtown Plaza shopping mall. The hotel is a 16-story 1970's style hunk of concrete. It has always been a Holiday Inn as far back as I can remember.
Oh the smell
The moment we walked onto the second floor the placed absolutely reeked of cigarette smoke and made us feel quite ill which is suprising as i am a smoker, the doona also smelled really bad of cigarettes blah even opening the window didnt get rid of the odour.
Convenient downtown location
The staff was very friendly and efficient at checkin. Found the bathroom incredibly clean, nary a frayed seam in the place. Convenient to shopping, Old Sac and train station.
Nice hotel in good location
Hotel was nice in good location near Old Town and a big shopping plaza.
Rooms were nice. Only problem is there were two large sports groups of teens and tended to get noisy and loud at night. Small pool on third floor was nice with nice lounge area and towels.
stayed for a conference. very noisy from people in the mall area below the hotel room. room was mediocre, smelled heavily iof cigarettes, and i smoked.
