I find the price high for the quality of the hotel, the room, in particular the bathroom was dirty, but the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Auburn has a lack of good hotels, this one is ok. I was surprised how outdated the bedding was. Otherwise it was fine.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our hotel. I am so sorry about the problem with the bathroom, but I see we gave you a discount at checkout to apologize for any inconvenience. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our rooms and to have one overlooked is not acceptable and I hope you will... More

We did a cold call on the Best Western in Auburn and we were able to get a room for us and our friend traveling with us was able to get a room also and they were adjoining. Which was nice since she was alone.

Easy off, easy on along I 80. Fine breakfast served early starting at 5:30! Probably because so many itinerant construction workers stay here mid-week. Clean, comfortable and a happy staff. A couple of really good restaurants as well as the usual assortment of fast food, all within walking distance.

Nicely maintained rooms, good wi-fi service and a decent hot breakfast in the early morning hours. It's in a good location with lots of local restaurants to try that are pretty tasty and resonable priced.

I like this motel located in Auburn, CA, as it's convenient to some good restaurants, is comfortable, reasonable, and easy to find. The staff has always been able to accommodate my requests, even at the last minute.

We have 2 small dogs and my hubby and me, and we were displaced by the Pollock Pines fire. We enjoyed our stay at the Golden Key and found it a delightful place to stay with our two dogs. They have grounds in which to walk the dogs, and the staff are extremely pleasant. For the price you cannot beat... More

Nice hotel in a lovely city. Had all that one needs for a few nights. We stayed two nights and had a handicap accessible room. Staff was pleasant, room was clean and adequate with both a refrigerator and microwave. Would love to see the rooms redecorated however, as they were a bit outdated and drab. Bed was comfortable and the... More

Super comfortable bed and clean room. Quite even next to I80. Breakfast was average. Would stay again if in the area. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I did appreciate the notebook in the room talking about the city of Auburn and the background.

We were in town for a wedding and there aren't a lot of options for rooms in the area. We were pleasantly surprised about how nice the hotel was and how friendly the staff was. We would definitely stay there again!
