How to Get There
We stayed in Sacramento for 1 night whilst on a road trip and chose Amber House for its unique charm, and because it was something different to a “chain” hotel. It’s actually two houses on opposite sides of the street. Check in was efficient, our breakfast order was taken at the same time, and we were directed to our room in the house opposite, and shown the parking so we were not on street. Room 10 was on the small side, but functional, and decorated well. Breakfast was nice as long as you like eggs benedict! The comment book in the bedroom was a quaint touch, and toiletries provided were very nice. If you want something different then Amber House provides that.
I was just reminded why I stopped using B&Bs. Yes, the antique homes are quaint, but the challenges for modern travelers are too vast for flea market finds to overcome. Our host was harried when we arrived and although I looked longingly at a pitcher of water in the greeting area, none was offered after a 9 hour drive to reach our destination. Online, and indeed another guest waiting to check in, made reference to some “welcome” cookies upon arrival. They were not ready for anyone yet (about 4:00PM). Not so bad but imagine my dismay after seeking the host on another issue I see packages of Grandma’s Cookies, likely from the Costco we passed on the way in. B&Bs used to pride themselves on their near-gourmet food and re-heating package cookies full of preservatives, is hardly a good representation of California culture. Likewise breakfast which had decent but over cooked eggs and pan-fried potatoes that were burned. The bed was super comfortable and the linens were very nice. The big old fashioned tub was so appealing after a long drive, but there was a small print notice warning you that if you didn’t use their lavender soap you would be charged $50 if you any other bath product ( never saw any bath crystals in the room) were we supposed to use the liquid soap on the sink? I understand those glitter bath bombs are a mess, but just provide people with the salts you prefer. There was a glass canister near the sink with some cotton face swabs and some foam ear plugs?? Weird. I gave up and decided this property was more interested in saving themselves work rather than ensuring that the paying customer was comfortable. Sadly; based on this experience, this is no more than a 3 star property.
This place was amazing!! The staff were kind, the room was adorable and the breakfast was delicious. We loved the morning coffee to our room and the uniqueness to each area of the B&B. We are definitely coming back. Thank you for the great trip to Sacramento!
