“Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is a nice, clean hotel and a great place to stay for the money. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was waffles, pastries, fruit, cereal and beverages. The dining area was very clean and pleasant. I will definitely stay here again if I am in the area.

This hotel is well maintained, with even some updated amenities. The breakfast was very nice and the staff made sure that the dining room stayed clean and stocked with plenty of food. The front desk staff were helpful for out-of-towners to find the way around town.

Great hotel, convenient to the freeway, friendly people. We stayed on our trip going home from California. We were tired out and a bit cranky from way to much traffic in the Bay Area and Marin County. The clerk who checked us in was so nice! It was your standard hotel room, you would expect. Sat in the hot tub for awhile and met lots of friendly people and then slept in a quiet cool room. Breakfast was the typical breakfast, there was lots of attention paid to it to keep it refreshed. We are happy we booked here.

I visit Auburn frequently & always stay at the Best Western Golden Key. It's very clean, convenient to the freeway and Old Town Auburn,( which is worth a morning to explore, especially if they're having the farmers market that day). The staff are all pleasant and helpful. A good value in an area where there aren't many choices. Wi-Fi is fast & doesn't drop out. The breakfast is make it yourself, which suits me fine. I haven't tried the pool yet but it looks good.

Very clean, quick check-in, friendly staff, good pool and lawn area. We've all stayed in motels that
predominantly book one-night stay, road travelers and some are a bit dingy. I'd guess that this one is locally owned with managers that take pride in their property because it's better than average.
