Very walkable town with hotel super close to all. Staff was pleasant. Only caveat is that there was an Amtrak train passing by at all hours of the day and especially all night. The hotel provides ear protection but our room faced the tracks which was not enough to block out the noise.
We spent one night at this hotel. Desk staff were pleasant and efficient. Room and espacially bathroom was large enough to be comfortable. Very nice pool. Everything very clean. Adjacent Italian restaurant was a bonus as one didn;t need to go searching for a meal unless Italian was not an option. The only negative for us was the "included" breakfast, which was more like the old "continental" style rather than hot food, eggs, etc. which one can get at similarly priced competitor establishments.
Very conveniently located hotel made our visit to UC Davis easy. It is just off the freeway so you won't get lost finding it. Parking was tight, even for a small car. Once you've parked, however, you can leave your vehicle where it is as a variety of fun restaurants, stores and entertainment options are just a short walk away.
On the night we arrived, we walked down 3rd Street to Crepeville, where we had a reasonably priced, delicious dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed the California Crepe and the French Toast (yes, french toast for dinner!).
The next morning, we popped into the breakfast room near the lobby. The provided breakfast was limited, but the bagels, hard-boiled eggs and coffee were fresh. If you need something more substantial, you can head immediately across the street to The Black Bear Diner.
There are a couple of wine tasting venues that feature local wines and an awesome bookstore, The Avid Reader, close by as well.
The only negative would be that the walls seem a little thin. The elevated patio on the second floor drew a crowd of noisy guests that were enjoying the summer night air. We found that we could mask the sound by simply turning on the A/C which delivered a white-noise style hum that took our mind off the revelers.
If the weather is cooler (as it was the second night), you can choose the fan-only option which delivered the same sonic trick.
We will stay here again.

The BEST WESTERN University Lodge is a pet-friendly Davis, CA hotel and is near UC Davis, Davis Farmers' Market and downtown …More
Nice location. They have bikes for guest use. Just a short ride to downtown or UC Davis. Parking is tight. Rooms are comfortable but the fitness room is sub par. Breakfast is heavy on the carbs and sugar and nothing is organic. The location is noisy being near the train tracks and at a busy intersection.
