The bed was very comfortable, the room clean, water hot, breakfast met expectations. Would stay here again. Only complaint was without a car there isn't much in the immediate area to see and do. There are plenty of restaurants in walking distance.

We stopped over on the way to Boreal to Ski/Snowboard. It was perfect for our one night stay. We arrived around 10 pm and headed up to the ski resort at 8 am. We requested a first floor room and it was very convenient to load and unload our luggage, etc. The coffee at the Breakfast was not great but... More

As a traveler with a dog, finding nice accommodations at a reasonable price is a real challenge. I felt like I hit the lottery when I opened the door to my room at this property. This is a humble hotel with very nice, clean, comfortable rooms. Due to traveling with my pet, I have had less than pleasant experiences in... More

I am a local who needed to stay here long-term due to repairs on residence. I checked out three hotels in Auburn before deciding on this one - also Comfort Inn and Quality Inn. The BWGK was by far the most appealing of the properties - the others were cramped, dated and dark. While the decor is not spectacular, and... More

The staff is friendly, helpful and extremely accommodating, they will literally give you the jacket off their back. The rooms are clean and the internet works great! I had an extended stay at this hotel and I had camera and computer equipment in my room that I needed for work. My personal items were never disturbed even when left out... More

I stayed at this Best Western for business. Based on the other reviews here, I was originally concerned about staying here, especially since I am sensitive to mold and dust. Both the decor and cleanliness of the room exceeded my expectations. Room was very clean and had no odors. Decor was nicer than I would expect for a $76/night. I... More

We had never stayed at the Best Western Golden Key in Auburn before, but decided to give it a try and were very glad we did. The motel had a certain quaint charm about it, with pictures of the "Olden Days" in the Auburn area. I was very happy with the furnishings in the room and found everyone working and... More

I was unable to find a room for a last minute reservation in the Truckee/Donner area, so this hotel in Auburn was the closest I could get. It turned out to be a wonderful idea. The hotel is only 40 minutes from snow and provided great accomodations. The room was big, clean, and comfortable and the (free!) breakfast the next... More

This hotel is great and conveniently located close to I-80, but there is no noise from the freeway. Also close to a supermarket and a Sizzler, which the kids appreciate. The pool wasn't open, but that wasn't a problem because we knew about it beforehand, so there were no expectations. I appreciated the staff warning us.
