We chose this facility based on price, location, and reviews. Even though it is not so elegant on the outside, we were pleasantly surprised by the condition of our room. It was very clean, updated, quiet, roomy, and comfortable. Certainly everything we needed for our one-night stay. At check-in, we had a problem which was that another party with the... More

Quite a surprise to find such a nice place, quiet, clean comfortable rooms, friendly staff, easy off, easy on the freeway, it is close to restaurants, shopping, the staff go out of their way to make sure you feel welcome and even offer to make fresh coffee for you when you come in late. The breakfast is fantastic just about... More

We were looking for a nice hotel that was close enough to Boreal (for snow tubing!) to use as a home-away-from-home and this one fit the bill perfectly. The staff was super-friendly, checking in was a breeze, and the room was comfortable and in good condition. As a bonus, the wi-fi was free and was speedy enough for our uses.... More

This place was awesome for the money! It's a little dated in some of it's decor but overall is very nice! Close to dining and groceries, nice pool, breakfast and amenities. We needed to check in early and were accommodated without delay!

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
