If you are in Sacramento because of the UC Medical Center main campus, this is a good location to stay. My home is within walking distance for many people, depending on where you to need to go on the campus of the Medical Center. A bike is available for more distant but nearby destinations. A few of the Medical Centers clinics are located some distance away from the main campus and a long distance from my location and would require a taxi.
And why stay at a hotel alone when you can share the amenities of a home?
Although near the medical center, my home is only about a mile to the light rail and half a mile from the bus line, so you can go many places in Sacramento! The schedules and maps for the light rail, bus lines and Medical Center locations can be checked on line to do your planning.
