I stayed at this hotel in February for a business trip and stayed one night. I came in April to for pleasure and checked out hotels again for my stay. I was considering staying at a cheaper hotel but decided to stick to what I know and I know I can count on a clean, comfortable stay at this hotel... More

It is amazing that there is a hotel with a heated outdoor pool and spa when there is snow on the ground. Nice swim towels were available. The grounds were nicely landscaped for an area that has cold temperatures. We could see this from our room. My biggest complaint was that there not many choices of protein for breakfast. The... More

The office staff was very friendly and helpful! The rooms are basic but clean and the breakfast was better than average continental style. The highway noise is significant but for the money, it's a good deal. We will stay there again when visiting family in the area.

I stayed here for a few days at the end of March. The BWGK isn't some big swanky resort but more of a roadside type hotel. The thing I can say was for the money and the area this was a good place to stay. The room was very clean and pretty basic. Flat screen, Mini fridge, microwave, iron, etc.... More

We have family in the area and have stayed in this hotel for the last 10 years whenever we come to visit. This place never disappoints! Location next to a grocery store, fast food, casual dining and Ikeda's makes it even more appealing. The front desk is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. I love all the flowers planted around the... More

Very nice front desk staff both in the evening and morning. Very helpful in advising some local sights with what were were looking to see and experience. Nice to see a Mac for guest to use. We did not get a chance to use the pool facilities as we got in late from a long trip accross Nev.

Staff was great. Very helpful and polite. Pool and hot tub were a highlight for the kids. Breakfast was good especially the waffles. Location was fantastic, quick access to food and interstate. Would recommend to friends and would stay again if in this area.

We stayed one night (2/23) and found it on a GPS/Phone search. It was a very pleasant surprise as everything went so smoothly. It was an easy check in with friendly staff. I asked about the restaurant next door - Lou La Bontes - and they said it was a nice place, Italian/American. After settling into our room, which was... More

We stayed 2 nights at Auburn Golden Key and we would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. It is clean, nice size rooms with very comfortable beds and good Internet service. Typical B.W. breakfast but nicely laid out in a room with large windows! Beautifully landscaped. This hotel should be a B.W. Plus.
