Still planning your trip to Sacramento I see.... Well, the econo lodge is on 16th and, while not in a ghetto, isn't a place I would stay, and I will stay in a lot of places! As it is on 16th street, it is 16 blocks to Old Town.
If you are looking for inexpensive motel, I would suggest Motel 6 on 30th Street. It is a bit further out, but Sacramento isn't really that big or busy. If you have a car, it is a snap to drive down to Old Sacramento.
Will you have a car? Let me know if I can give you any help at all.
