we recently decided to take a get away and this was the first place that caught our attention. we liked the older look of it and it was quiet and a well rounded place. i like that the people are just normal people and not just doing there job. they actually make you feel at home and talk to you...

My wife and I have been here several times in the last 20 years. Yes, it's old and yes the central heating is old and yes sometimes things are broken. But we like old funky motels and we like this place for the most part.......until now. Unfortunately our last experience was poor service and no phone service. My wife checked... More

After 2 hours at a nearby "chain" motel, I asked for and received a full refund because of the horrendous noises coming from other rooms in the "modern" but cheaply built structure. Here the staff was welcoming and admirably professional! For less money than I paid for the "nightmare" room, I got a spacious, immaculate, comfortable quiet room with a... More

My family members from all over the U.S. stayed here for our family reunion. It was an embarrassing reflection on Auburn. Although the rooms are clean and nice looking, my sister noticed that there was not a clock radio or towels. When she went to call the front desk, the phone didn't work! Yikes, I can see a thing or... More

A ground level older property, but grounds are well maintained in proximity to many venues. Rooms provide the minimal basic requirements with microwave, fridge, free parking, balconies. We've stayed here several times in the past & elected to book several rooms for a couple of nights at this property for the special group rate offered. Special confirmed rates were not... More

The motel is wonderfully kept up inside and outside. rooms are of older decor but clean and comfy. Would recommend this motel to anyone who is coming through auburn. Rooms can be a little chilly or even a little warm depending on where you are. Office staff will help you to the best of thier ability. The only problem we... More

We had been trying to find a room since Reno but all the chains were booked. We decided to try this place really as a last resort (at 1AM) since with these older places, you just never know what you're going to get. The desk clerk was friendly and quick. We requested non-smoking and received an extremely clean room that... More

After seeing the retro signs for the Foothills Motel along Hwy. 80 we decided to give it a try and are glad we did. From the friendly front desk clerk who looked forward to the latest installment of "Bring It On" later that night to the chenille bedspread and the wacky Southwest style pictures hanging on the walls, the place...

The motel is very outdated, the pillow case was not changed and it still had hair from the previous guest. Also, we were charged for a "missing bath towel" that we never saw. The hotel manager said that according to the housekeeping reports there was evidence that a towel was missing. I wonder if the unchanged dirty pillow case was... More
