“45 minutes from Sugar Bowl”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Trip Advisor said this was the best place in Auburn, and we can confirm that it was. We've stayed at several different Auburn places; this was the first time at the Best Western. It was clean, had those few little conveniences that surprise you (toothpaste!), and friendly. The only issue was the people above us were jumping around (it sounded like) and woke us up - need better sound insulation between the first and second floors!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our hotel when you stayed with us. I am so glad to see that my staff took care of you in the way you deserved and that you appreciated the amenities we offer. I researched and found that you stayed in one of our Double Queen Rooms. The subflooring in that building is only plywood, unlike one of our King Room buildings that has concrete subflooring that seems to dissipate the noise a little better, but if you are not used to having someone above you, the noise made by the other guests on the upper level always seems to be a lot noisier. If the other guests in the unit above you were unreasonably loud, a call to our front desk to alert them of this problem would have had my staff to take appropriate action to ensure all of our guests were enjoying their stay. I hope we will see you again soon.

I recently stayed at the Best Western Golden Key in Auburn, Ca and found it to be very clean, comfortable and friendly. I really liked the "green" energy savings features and they are extremely pet friendly and very helpful. I will definitely stay there again!

The room was very clean and very presentable. There seemed to be great care in the quality of the room. Towels were changed daily and the general appearance from one day of stay to the next was very good. Staff were courteous and friendly. I would stay here again.

I am currently remodeling a home close by and this motel is within my budget and it helps that they serve breakfast, which helps cut my cost of long periods of stay. Front Desk staff is always pleasant and willing to help. I will stay here again

We stay at Best Western all the time and are always happy with our experience. The beds are comfortable and we love the many soft pillows on the bed. Staff is alway accommodating and pleasant to deal with. We love the complimentary breakfast.

We've stayed here several times. While the breakfast options force us to drive over to Starbuck's, the location of this BW and friendliness of the staff will make us repeat customers. Auburn is our destination but it's a good place to stop before heading to the Sierras.

Friendly and helpful staff. Easy to find, nice area with numerous dining options within walking distance. Location was right off the freeway but noise was not a factor. Liked the energy efficient features. Clean, good internet access and a good fit for an overnight business trip.
