Second time at this hotel and loved it as much as I did the first time. Staff was very friendly especially at check-in. Upgraded at check in based on IHG status so it pays to join their loyalty program. My only complaint on this hotel is the wallpaper in the common areas is very ugly and the random pieces of... More

Checked in very late at night, did not have the king bed available but it was nice, clean and quiet. Close to the highway is a big plus. Good stop for overnight travelers. Triple sheets, flat screen and clean room. The bathroom towels were big and their shampoos were a good brand.

I really enjoyed my stay here. Bring a business card and they will make you a luggage tag. The staff is friendly and the rooms are nice and clean. Their restaurant is a little expensive, but it is quite good.

The hotel is just off the interstate highway, yet quiet. Staff are very helpful and friendly. We attended a wedding, and the hotel was a wonderful place for informal gatherings surrounding that event in the pool area. Wedding events were elsewhere; however, the post-wedding brunch at the hotel was very nice. The old town is a short walk or drive... More

I have stayed at several different Holiday Inn locations across the US and this one is in the top 5 for service, not so much for their decor, but the service I received was outstanding. From check in to check out, the staff here was willing to go above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed. I... More

We stayed here for four nights because of a family funeral. The place is clean (I'm a neat freak), well-run, pretty updated, and quiet. I don't understand the complaints about highway noise, unless the travelers in question are from small towns or something. The most I heard was a little exuberance from the In-and-Out Burger down the hill, and it... More

We were in town for a Western States training run, and this hotel fit the bill. Our room was simple, but comfortable and clean. It's location right off of 80 is ideal. Old town Auburn has a lot of nice restaurants, but not much in the way of accommodations. This hotel is on the otherside of the interstate from old... More

I recently stayed here for an area event. The rooms were very nice and quiet. The refrigerator had a freezer section (rare for a hotel room refrigerator), the bed had firm and soft pillows nicely labelled. The hotel has appealing architecture. The gym had an oddly designed all-in-one "bow flex" type machine (for example, the weight stack right next to... More

My family and I attended a wedding in Auburn at the end of August it was a lovely time. The service I received at Max's grill was pleasant the first day friendly staff.

We stayed here on the way to Tahoe. It accomplished the goal. It was clean and quiet. There is a Max's attached to the hotel which serves a nice breakfast. It was a little pricier than some of the other hotels in Auburn, but we were happy with our choice. As a bonus it is located next to an In... More
