Hello Susan and welcome to PTO! Here is the link that has lodging info near FSP

http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=190175

Is your loved one at Folsom State Prison or California State Prison-Sacramento? I couldn’t help but notice you said "California State Prison in Sacramento"...confusing, right? hehe They are really only like 1 min away from each other but they are totally separate prisons. The lodging info will still be the same but the rules, procedures and all the other good stuff you may need to know might be a tad bit different..in case he is at Ca State Prison-Sac here is the link for that forum

http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/for...lay.php?f=1073

I hope this helps! If you have anymore questions please feel free to ask

Happy Visiting!! ((hugs))

You could also try:

Comfort Inn & Suites
12249 Folsom Blvd
Rancho Cordova, CA
(Rate $70.00-$100 per night, plus additional discounts if you tell them you are visiting Folsom Prison)
Rooms are really nice and they also have an outdoor pool.

Great spot, I think this is the one.
My parents are going with me, so I want to make sure it's nice and the kids can hang out at the pool after visit.

This hotel is really nice. Ask for a room near the pool. I guess a lot of Folsom guest stay here, so not only do they offer the discount but they also have a complimentary continental breakfast ready for us ladies by 5am. Just in time for us to grab something before we stake out prison road. There's also a place to eat on the premises and a few other places close by. Another wifey stayed there and it was great!

They run a shuttle from the Light Rail, but I believe that you have to make that appointment the Sunday BEFORE... I wish I had more information for you! Hopefully, there will be someone else on here who has more info.

Good luck!
