Guest Testimonials

"I stayed for 1 day with my family.. We drove up from Southern California to visit family and attend church. Luis, our front desk attendant was extremely nice and helpful. He went out of his way to accommodate us. We stayed in a 3 bedroom,3 bath cottage house complete with a sitting room at an incedible rate.. The food was great although more menu choices would have been nice. A liitle expensive, but the quality more than made up for price. Family had free breakfast buffet that they raved about, but I slept in. Was sad we had to cut trip short a day. Would have definitely enjoyed staying another day. Felt competely safe walking around the grounds. Had no issues or concerns with safety. Wondeful place to stay. Will definitely stay again when visiting Sacramento area."

"My husband and I loved this place. When we drove up I told him this was the place. The fact I just love palm trees this had to be the place we got married. They are all around this beautiful re-modeled Air Force base. Not just were the grounds amazing but after speaking to Megan again I was validated that I wanted to get married there. Megan was such a great helping, walking us through every part of the "Generals House" informing us what we would get if we choose Lions Gate as our wedding spot. We never felt pressured with pricing and she was very easy to talk to about all our details. We were even set up with a privet tasting because our schedule didn't match up with the group tasting. The food was amazing! Which made it very hard to pick menu items. What we picked for our wedding was just as amazing from when we tasted it. Our guest still talk about how great our food was. We would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a great out door wedding who is also looking at accommodating guest I site."

"I was looking for a venue that had everything all in one location and would help out with everything. The Lion's Gate Hotel went above and beyond what I was expecting. Their wedding coordinator Megan was so helpful and made sure everything went smooth. We heard from our guest they loved the location and the food was amazing!"

"The facility and grounds are beautiful. Located at McCellen Airbase this hotel sets you back in time to the 1940s World War II era. The buildings and grounds are well preserved. The architecture is incredible. Did I mention the beautiful grounds? Nice restaurant on site and a bar that's been serving drinks for many decades. When I come to McCellan for business I always stay here. Love the charming buildings and grounds. There is a drawback and that's the location. It's a beautiful bit of paradise located next to a blighted neighborhood. Although it is gated and very safe. Must walk around and step back in time. Staff extremely helpful."

"We were a flight crew that flew into McClellan right next door. This hotel was recommended to us by the business jet center at the airport for our 4 day layover. What a great place! A lot of history here. We no doubt stayed in former office's quarters originally built before ww2. Everything has been completely restored with very little expense spared. The main structure is concrete and the rooms are dead quiet. I loved the since of history. The rooms feature black and white photos of the base back in the day. There are even black and white post cards in each room. The Officers Club serves as the restaurant/lounge. Clean! I mean....the rooms sparkle! Hope we can return some day. A refreshing break from the Hampton Inn."

"The Lions gate was a great place for a wedding not only is there facility a beautiful place it was clean the food is amazing and the staff is super friendly. It was also nice that our guests could stay in the Lions Gate hotel and not have to worry about drinking and driving, they could just walk to there rooms after the reception. My husband and I enjoyed the fact that are families stayed at the hotel and in the morning before the wedding and again after the wedding we all hung out and had breakfast together allowing both our families to get to know each other even more. The only problem that we had was our original wedding coordinator from the Lions Gate decided to leave two weeks before our wedding, no one had called to inform us of this and we were trying to finalize everything, For a Week we left emails and Voice mails for her with no response, finally we had to contact the manager in order to find out was going on and who to contact. So a week before my wedding we had to do a lot of Emails and phone calls so that I could go over everything again with the new wedding coordinator, we were able to finalize everything and they did apologize and stepped it up to make sure we had everything we needed it was just a little more stress added to an already stressful time. Also some of the rooms could use some updating I understand that the Lions Gate has a lot of history behind it and allot of the buildings are older but a little updating would not hurt. Over all we loved the out come of our wedding many of our friends and family have complimented us on our wedding saying how the food was amazing and they loved the place it was beautiful and how the staff at the Lions Gate was so helpful. If I had to do it over again I would defiantly choose the Lions Gate."


"The continued high level of customer service is one of the reasons we continue to book with Lions Gate."

"I did want to thank you both for your services before and during the event.  It was a pleasure working with you both, and the outcome received many positive accolades from the attendees.  In particular, many commented very favorably on the hors d'ouvres served on Friday night, and the great dinner selections on Saturday night.  I should also note that your staff personnel, especially the bartender and the servers were very efficient, and complied with all of my never ending requests to ensure a smooth flowing event.

All in all, and despite some major changes from the plans formulated several months ago, the event was a resounding success, and in no small part, that was a direct result of your personal involvement and attention to detail."

"The party was a big success.  The food was great along with the setup and service.  You guys never disappoint us.  I'll be over there in August to help with registration for the class of '62.  I'll make sure to recommend you hotel to others. Thanks you so much for the wonderful cheese/fruit plate, it really hit the spot with the hungry committee people during setup."

"The brothers of the Xi Chapter would like to extend our sincere appreciation for your excellent service during our 2012 Spring Formal.  During the planning process, your event coordinators were generous and considerate when meeting with our chapter officers and in meeting our event's needs. During the event itself, your kitchen staff did a delicious job in preparing our buffet and y our banquet staff provided us excellent service throughout the night. We especially appreciate accommodating the impromptu move of our officers' Installation Ceremony to your new courtyard - the outdoor site made for a beautiful ceremony location at the evening's conclusion. We look forward to our continued business at Lions Gate Hotel!"

"The Lion's Gate is a wonderful property, exceptional setting with many old trees and a feeling of permanence. The only thing more reassuring than the setting was the impeccable staff.  From the front desk clerks who always greeted us with a smile to the wait staff in the restaurant who anticipated our every need.  We felt like honored guests throughout our stay!  Thank you!!"

"The California Fire Mechanics Academy has been a corporate customer of the Lions Gate Hotel for several years.  We can always depend on their professionalism and expertise to assist our training academy participants coming to Sacramento from throughout the country.  This location is absolutely the best in Sacramento for our program!"

"I wanted to say how much we enjoyed our time with Lions Gate.  Your facility was perfect for our event.  Everyone who was there certainly came away with a new site tucked in their minds for future events! I had a number of them ask me to host the event here again in 3 years. When the need arises, be assured I will absolutely return to Lions Gate!"
—Association Conference

"The Lions Gate Hotel is a very quaint and interesting property.  I am interested to know more about it's history!  You did a terrific job in blocking all of our rooms in the same area.  It really made a difference in our team's travel experience. Secondly, our dinner by the pool was a real success.  I think that the servers did a fantastic job with accommodating our needs. Our team loved the convenience of your property to the soccer fields.  If our team returns to Sacramento to play in this tournament, we will definitely consider returning to the Lions Gate Hotel.  Thank you again for a job well done!"

"Our stay at the Lions Gate Hotel was wonderful and the feedback from the families was excellent.  Our team families booked 8 rooms for Friday, July 29 and 9 rooms for Saturday, July 30. Our group of about 27 people also enjoyed dinner on the deck overlooking the pool on Saturday evening.  The food was delicious and the service was excellent.  I sincerely appreciate your follow-up."

"I have to say we had a great experience at your Hotel, you were very accommodating. Everyone was very happy and we will stay there again if we are playing at Freedom Park. Thank you for all your help with our accommodations, I think since we had no problems with the hotel and were well rested for our games this may be the reason why WE WON the tournament...Thanks again!"
—Softball Tournament

"We had a great stay and weekend at Lions Gate.  Friday night we stayed in a queen bed room which was quite cozy and we ended up having to stay saturday night also.  Since there were only queens and suites left we decided to share a two bedroom suite. The suite was very spacious and nice. We might be coming back in late July for another tournament at Cherry Island!"
