Clean convenient location walkable to campus and downtown Davis. Very glad to see that it was pet friendly, as I'll be back in the next few months to visit. Easy parking for college tour, I didn't need my car for 3 days!

This hotel is always clean and the staff friendly. The rooms are large and the beds are comfortable. I stay here every time I'm in Davis. The location is an easy walk to all of the dining, shopping and the Farmer's Market.

We stayed in this hotel while visiting UC Davis and it is an experience I hope not to repeat. It felt more like a motel than a hotel and not what I was expecting. There were no elevators, so my husband had to carry all the luggage up the steps to the second floor. Rooms are open to the outside...

This is a middle of the road hotel. I was disappointed in the place the bed was uncomfortable. I do not recommend this hotel. I only booked because the hotels were full because of college graduation and this was a business trip.

I spent six nights at the BW hotel at Davis on March 2017. I felt quite disappointed for several reasons. The check inn in was made without any of the standard explanations you expect in a hotel. The attendant has this chronic terrible mood, looks really tedious and seemed to be making you a favor. Next day during breakfast I...

We enjoyed our 7 day stay at this location and were even able to attend a farmer's market held Sunday morning in the park just across the street. We like this location and return to it every couple of years when we attend educational sessions at UC Davis. We like the location and proximity to amenities and to UC Davis....

We stayed for one night at the Best Western University Lodge. It is a no frills motor court style motel which is ok for a short stay when you need to be in the middle of Davis or near the university. The rooms are clean and functional with a desk, large TV, refrigerator, safe and microwave. The dated bathrooms are...

Spent one night here on our way to Napa. Rooms are basic, no frills yet comfortable. Location is perfect. Walking distance to many eateries downtown so no need to worry about public parking. Breakfast was okay with yogurt, hard boiled eggs and waffles offered. Overall good value for a short trip. Don't know if I'd stay here for more than...

This is a basic, no frills hotel option which is located in downtown Davis. Very convenient to campus and restaurants and other places in town. Basic rooms which are on the smaller side. Breakfast area is very small but does have hot and cold options. This is a decent and inexpensive option while visiting Davis.

This is a rather old fashioned hotel in its appearance, and it's not fancy in its decor, but it's a good value and offers an excellent location in terms of walking to the university or downtown. It was fine for a place to stay for a family visit. Pleasant staff, clean rooms.
