“Comfortable and at home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011 via mobile

We were visiting family for one night and needed a comfortable place to stay so we could rest well. Our family of four was very happy. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were clean, the amenities were sufficient. I will definitely stay there again.

We were in old town Auburn and decided to stay in town. Chose this hotel because of reviews and ratings. Solid hotel and staff is very accomodating. Room was clean and spacious. Slept right through the complementry morning breakfast. Recommend to others and would stay there again. Located down the road from Ikeda's fruit stand which is a great fast food and fresh food stopover.

Close to the freeway but far enough not to hear freeway traffic, this hotel has nice, roomy rooms, a large continental breakfast, fresh cookies or brownies in the lobby as well as colorful jelly beans and a computer; free computer access in each room, a nice lay-out building structure surrounded by flowers and greenery; a pool open all year which includes a generator-powered cover to use as an indoor pool during colder months; and less than a short mile away, a full shopping center with market, restaurants and stationery/craft store.
I also like that the clock radio in our room has settings of : babbling brook, frogs, chimes and the ocean to relax by.

Staff is very friendly and you can accumulate reward points every time you stay there. Easy freeway access.

Near the pool there is also a grassy area with barbecues for those wanting to cook their own meals.

It's a great place to stay and the rates are very affordable!

We stayed at this Best Western while searching for real estate in the area. They give you
several options of discounts AARP working the best for us. Room rate were reasonable for 1 Sat. night stay.Front desk was very helpful. We ate at the restaurant next door they suggested for dinner. It was very good. The bed was comfortable, good linens, coffee, frig, microwave and a spotless bathroom.
We enjoyed the more than typical continental breakfast in the breakfast room and wish we had brought our suits for a swim. We defiantly will return to this attractive well kept motel

My wife and I stayed for two nights. From the telephone receptionist to the in-person one we found the staff to be exceptionally accommodating and friendly. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was plentiful. The motel disclose to fast food, grocery and drug stores. Easy access to and from freeway. The jellybeans in the lobby were a nice treat!

Clean rooms, comfortable bed, goodnights sleep both nights. Be prepared for road noise, however, didn't keep us awake. The best thing is that you are walking distance to Joe's Caribe restaurant. Large selection of breakfast items available 5:30 - 9:30. 5 minutes to old town and downtown.

I haven't stayed in a Best Western Hotel in over 20 years. I was very pleasantly surprised at this gem of a motel. Very conveniently located right off the freeway (but you don't hear the traffic). They recently upgraded the mattresses to double pillow top and they are VERY comfortable! The room was very nicely decorated, it was clean, and my friends favorite part of the property, there were many flowers planted.

The breakfast they serve includes the 'do-it-yourself' waffle maker, a hit with the guests. Their pool is year round because of a 'blow up' cover. I thought it looked strange but it's very roomy inside (warm and clean too!).
This stay is making me re-think staying at Best Western motel's again - they're better than I remember.
