Historical Traveler Reviews Inn and Spa at Parkside Sacramento
A True Home Away from Home
What a truly comfortable place to stay! Over the past three years, I have travelled to Sacramento on numerous business trips, and I consistently choose the Inn at Parkside as my number one place to stay. I have stayed in the Destiny, Tranquility, Spirit, Balance, and Healing Energy rooms, and all of the noted rooms have incredibly comfortable beds and appropriate amenities. While the website adequately captures the look of each room, it doesn't give justice to the true quality and feel of each room and of the Inn in general. The morning breakfasts are always scrumptuous, and the evening wine/happy hour is a nice touch. The dining room is elegant, and front parlor/living room is the perfect spot to curl up with a good book and a glass of wine. The managers are wonderful hosts and are truly helpful with restaurant recommendations. Why stay at a typical hotel room when you have the option of such a wonderful Inn that truly provides the feel of being at home? I will always choose the Inn at Parkside as my preferred place in the Sacramento/Davis area!
A Regular Reports Thumbs Up!
I have been staying at the Inn at Parkside for three nights a week every other week for more than a year. The guest who wrote the last report were way off base. The tub in Passion does have a crack with a professional patch job and the owners have ordered a new tub, they did under go a complete electrical rewire but that is now done, they were right the place does not match the website, it is better than the website depicts. Infact all the rooms were renovated in 2003 for their initial opening then again in 2004 for the electrical work required by they city. The rooms were finished off far superior than before the rewire, infact two of the rooms were completely renovated because one of the owners did not like the decor so he re-did it. The the thing this picky couple missed was the outstanding personal service provided by their staff. Every guest that I have seen is welcomed and appreciated.
Great Ambiance and even greater massage!
Talk about unique, the Inn at Parkside is a hidden jewel in Sacramento. Each room provides it's own special ambiance and the Inn is cozy and inviting. Complimentary breakfast was superb! Phillip was extremely helpful, making us feel as though we were family. Most surprising was the spa treatment. My husband and I have recieved massage treatments on numerous occasions at some of the most respected Spas in the United States and my massage may have been the best ever. I was lucky enough to have a precious young lady named Raechele as my therapist. Raechele is blessed with the warmest hands I have ever encountered. Her techniques were superb and she seemed to understand my theraputic needs. She was incredibly calming and put me to ease immediately; a prerequisite for a truly enjoyable massage.
If you are ever in Sacramento and need a place to stay, try the Inn at Parkside and for a massage to die for ask for Raechele.
Looks good on their website, but watch out!
We stayed at the Inn at Parkside in August 2004. The room we stayed in, "Passion" looked much different in person (worse!) than on the website. Also the whirlpool tub had a huge crack in it, and many spiderwebs and dusty windowsills - I had to clean them myself just to feel comfortable. There were also many holes in the walls due to construction and re-wiring, and we did not get a discount because of that. The breakfast was tasty, and the mattress was comfy, but other than that this place needs a lot of work.
We appreciate all our guest who have stayed with us over the past two years as we remodeled the enitire building twice. Once when we bought it for the current website and then again after the City of Sacramento required us to install commerical wiring. The end product is a fabulous B & B that was listed in January 2005 Wall Street Journal as one of Sacramento A list places to stay!
Lovely Luxury Inn in Historic Mansion
A colleague and I had the pleasure of staying at The Inn at Parkside while we were attending a two day seminar, which was rather intense. This 1936 Mediterranean revival style home was built for a Chinese ambassador to the States and is an interesting blend of Asian, European and Art Deco touches. Staying overnight in such lovely accommodations made our business trip much more enjoyable. I loved the ambience and peacefulness of my room; it certainly lived up to its name, "Tranquility". The deep blue of the walls and the iridescence of the bed and window coverings made me feel like I was wrapped in a luxurious cocoon. After a tension relieving whirlpool tub and a restful night in that wonderful bed, I hated to get up and rush off to class. But it was made bearable by the delicious breakfast taken in the beautiful dinning room, looking out the arched windows on the rain-bedecked maple tree. The inn also offers spa treatments such as massage and facials, which I regretfully was unable to enjoy due to my tight schedule. I highly recommend this unique inn for anyone who wants a rejuvinating retreat from the stress of business or everyday life.
Talk about a surprise. We have been coming to Sacramento for years to visit family and frankly thought that Sacramento had dull lodging offerings. Until now! This place not only offers great rooms but an indulgent Chocolate Spa treatment. We had a chocolate scrub, bath, and a one hour chocolate massage. Who needs a jacuzzi....they had that too. We were greeted with serene music on the approach of this grand mansion just across the street from a peaceful park. The same music followed us into the building and out to the lush green patio garden. Phil made dinner reservations for us and gave us our own itenerary to the Gold Country Wineries. The room had a goodie basket in it. What a surprise for my wife and I. Service like this is dead even in the grandest hotels and completely lost in Sacramento. We are going back.
I had a wonderful stay here. I arrived late the first night of my stay to find my room, "Tranquility," open with the lights and celing fan on, waiting for me. One of the owners happened to be around to greet me and help me with my luggage. The room itself was beautiful. The bed was by far the most comfortable that I have ever slept on during a hotel stay. The bathroom was large with a jacuzzi tub and separate shower stall. The room had a full closet with robes for the guests to use. I was very comfortable in my room for the duration of my stay.
The two course breakfasts were delicious. The chef was wonderful in explaining what the dishes were and even substituting for a food dislike that I had.
The staff here was very friendly and helpful. They were willing to answer any questions I had and help me with directions.
I would definitely recommend the Inn at Parkside to anyone coming to Sacramento. I will definitely be staying here on any future visits to Sacramento
Refreshing and Comfortable
We had originally planned on staying here for 3 nights. Unfortunately, we had to change our plans and could only stay for 1 night. After our stay, we wished we could have stayed much longer. The staff and accomodations were wonderful. Our room was both beautiful and comfortable. Details like the evening wine reception and personalized care made the stay memorable, not to mention the robes which were great! When we get to Sacramento again, we will definitely stay at the Inn at Parkside!
Romantic and Quaint
WOW! What a wonderful time we had. Our 3 hour candle lit spa treatment inluded an invigorating herbal sugar scrub followed by a soak in our own private spa tub, then into a 90 minute massage! A true aphrodesiac. We felt so incredibly pampered and relaxed!!!
The hospitality of the staff was so heartfelt and welcoming and we couldn't have envisioned a more romantic setting. The complimentary 2 course breakfast (served to us in bed no less) was scrumptious!
For years we've been in search of the perfect romantic getaway and alas we have found it- The Inn at Parkside!!!
My girlfriend and I stayed at the inn at parkside. What a great time we had. We stayed in the "Happiness" suite and really enjoyed a night of relaxing and talking. The atmosphere is very comfortable and the staff makes you feel at home.
I would recommend the inn at parkside to anyone who has to stay in Sacramento, whether it is for business for pleasure.

... smoothest days on the road are the most uneventful. We didn't have any traffic issues, we didn't get in a fight over directions or driving habits, we didn't have any rain (or hail! WTF, ARIZONA!?), and we didn't have any restaurant issues that lead us to starve in the desert. It was smooth driving until sunny Sacramento, California.
Dinner was at Hook and Ladder Manufacturing, a wonderful restaurant trying its hardest to be ...
... Sadly, the ref seemed to get a little tired of ruling offside at the breakdown in the 2nd half so thing got a bit messy. Fortunately, a full team handshake was not required until full time. By then the hard grounds and the free flowing game was taking its toll as our boys started to drop with cramp. Overall, a good performance, but there's still a lot of room for improvement with our decision-making and ball skills.
Credit has to be given to Jesuit in both games. ...
Today started with another beautiful courtyard breakfast, setting the chilled pace early again. The post-breakfast goal was to walk to Old Sacramento, explore what Lonely Planet deems a “tourist trap” and then hire some bikes to ride along the American River. I’m a little annoyed at Lonely Planet’s treatment of Sacramento in their USA guide book. It’s the state capital and it gets less than an A5 page, where it says ...
... to watch the Arsenal FA Cup Final. Once I had found my chosen destination, we made a short trip to a In-N-Out burger, and then back for the early rise. A 15 minute drive at 7:45 in the morning was all that was required to find the chosen Irish pub, with a dedicated following of Arsenal fans turning up there every game, simply known as the official Sacramento Gooners. As tempting as it is to give you the full match report, I won't. But what I will say ...

We did spend one day travelling up to Split Rock lighthouse. It was a wonderful day. We went to Two Harbors and had our lunch, and then over to Gooseberry Falls where we hiked around and watched the fools playing on the slippery rocks – none fell in though; and then on up to the lighthouse. We were actually able to go up in it for the first time. It seems like on previous times everything has been closed. It is a ...
