Yes the hotel is clean. But it should be for the price. I checked in at 9-30pm and left at 7am and had to beg for a decent rate. It was still to expensive for a hotel off the interstate. I wandered looking for an ice machine, no signage. When I checked in there was a customer at the desk... More

We visited this hotel by chance. It is one of the cleanest we've found. There is a In and Out burger next door. The hotel restaurant, Max, was good, but quite expensive. The laundry area was good, but could use a cleaning. $2.00 for washing, $2.00 for drying. Both washer and dryer are small, so I had to do 2... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for the Auburn Holiday Inn. We very much appreciate hearing from our guests. IHG rewards members should get a 2pm check out here at our hotel. I will address this issue and thank you for saying so. We hope you will return to Auburn, soon. More

My husband and i booked a room here for our in-town date night. Everything started out ok. Was great that they offer two free drinks for Max's as well as wine tasting in the lobby. The room was also nice and clean, but we had several problems with our key card. It took multiple times to get it to work... More

I'm very sorry you are upset about our smoking fee. It is very expensive to do what is necessary to get the room back to our standard. It requires a lot of extra cleaning and a machine to run if someone smokes in a NON SMOKING room. The keys were certainly an issue for you and for that I do... More

We stayed here before our flight home. We had spent a few days in Reno. We stayed at a different hotel in the area our first night that was cheaper but decided to stay here our last night. The other hotel was nice for the price and this one was more expensive but well worth it, We were alittle worried... More

This is a basic motel in a good location. Don't expect great amenities, but the hotel is clean and well-maintained. Very nice and professional staff. Good base of operations for work or being a tourist.

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
