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 Would love to see the rooms redecorated however, as they were a bit outdated and drab.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!

Nice rooms, comfortable beds, pool and a very helpful and accommodating staff. My only critique is no meat at breakfast and no work out room but that wouldn't stop me from staying here again. The staff is great!

We bicycled cross country through small town USA staying in hotels for four months and are now driving home. Our experiences have ranged from the excellent to the not so much. This is a dated but functional hotel. It is not to the level of what I've come to expect from an up to date Best Western. The positives: pleasant... More

A good place to stay when you are too tired to drive over Donners Pass, especially if you have a pet. This motel is evidently a favorite among burners ( burning man weekend) as it was full, which made it a noisy place. The employees and price which included breakfast gave it the 4 stars. It would have been quieter... More

The location of this hotel is great and the town is a cute little town, but staying at this hotel was not a good experience. We stay in a lot of hotels that allow dogs. We have always had good experiences until now. The room that we were in smelled so bad of wet dog that I didn't even want... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our hotel. I am very sorry that you were disappointed with your room. We do have certain rooms set aside for those traveling with their pets.

Pros: Well-maintained rooms and grounds, friendly staff, comfortable bed, extra blankets & pillows without having to ask, free continental breakfast with reasonable options (would have liked some granola, though), decent-sized tv, quiet area of town/very little residual noise, 'green' energy, and easily accomodated our early check-in. Cons: Though kept very clean there was still a slight "older hotel" smell upon... More

Clean and Green! Situated along the freeway for convenience, but, amazingly no freeway noise on the ground floor! On arrival, I was given a "treat bag" for the dogs... and people too. The dogs got biscuits, and I got poop picker upper bags and a pair of disposable gloves. Always a "handy" item when traveling with dogs. The front desk... More
