From the minute we checked in until departure wonderful service from staff and very spacious room with two Queen beds. It was clean and nicely furnished. I also appreciated that they let us check in early as we had to get ready in time for a wedding. Will come back to this hotel when we come back to this area... More

good place to be able to stay with 6 family members in one room-- not always easy to do. Breakfast other than the waffles was pretty average. No skim milk. Good staff. Wifi worked. Pool area good for kids. Room worked, fridge good sized.

Boyfriend and I stayed here for one night on our trip to California. Nice staff, great location. Rooms weren't anything to write home about but they got the job done. Nice large bed, large bathroom, tv, free wireless. Great place to stay to break up a road trip.

I was very pleased with my stay, the hotel was very clean along with the room and pool/spa. It was quiet even though it is close to the freeway. Great location easy off and on. I would stay again if i ever visit this area.

We enjoyed our stay and found many pluses--and only one drawback. Here our my notes: 1. Room:clean, with great ac, although it was 93 degrees outside. 2. They had us set for a smoking room but at our request changed us to non-smoking, even though they were fully booked. 3. Our room seemed more spacious with the raised ceiling. The... More

I was thrilled to find, when I called the Golden Key 24 hours after my checkout, that they had found and logged in my wireless mouse, which I had left in my motel room. At least some this motel is operating as one should.

Went on a whitewater rafting trip with All Outdoors - (excellent) and opted to stay the night before and after the trip at the BW Golden Key. About 30 minutes to rafting location - the hotel was perfect for our needs. Quiet, convenient, near restaurants, and the price was excellent value. Hotel is very clean, staff welcoming, breakfast sufficient and... More
