The locale, decor and grounds were terrific. Even the sheets were retro styled. Most impressive as the garden work as it truly evidenced owners who have cared for a significant time. If it was $10 cheaper a night, it would have got an easy 5 stars. I'll stay again without reservation or hesitation.

My family and I paid 70+ Dollars for a room at the foothills motel . Upon entering the room we noticed that there were several blood splatters on the wall we continued in the room and realized that there was blood splattered throughout the room . The room had a bad odor and appeared very dirty . Upon discussing this... More

We have stayed at this property a few times, always the same time of year, never had reservations. Apparently everyone else decided to come to Auburn the same weekend, so we got a crappy room the first night. No bath towels when we checked in, torn up carpet, one outlet so we had to unplug something to plug in the... More

We traveled late because everywhere we stopped out of San Francisco was full. We were traveling with a dog, so that limited our choices. This motel is very charming on the outside, but the room was as terrible. I cleaned off the crusty remote, the light switches, and the bathroom surfaces with my sanitizer wipes, or I don't think I...

I was hoping for a quaint hotel. What I got was the set of Bates Motel. There is no remote control for the TV, the air conditioner doesn't work. There was a scary rattling coming from the floor air vent. There were blood stains on the Mattress. The sheets don't fit the bed. If your staying to far from the... More

Looks quaint from the outside, beautiful pine trees nice pool, but the first room we were given was very sub-standard. Stains on side of mattress, and sheets had visably not been changed. . We were given another room which was a little better, cleaner. Cannot recommmed this establishment at all. Very bad example for the Auburn, which we love.

When arrived to this nicely kept place and was greeted with a smile. Checking in was comforable and the desk clerk talked to us about the area and local sites that would be good to see "Foothills Bridge" the third tallest bridge in the states. Check in was fast and once we arrived to our room it had a comforable... More

I saw the big neon sign in front and thought I'd give this place a shot. I needed a place to crash and I was tired. Now granted, this isn't the Waldorf Astoria, but it was a well kept, older motel that reminded me of road trips from when I was a kid. The AC worked well (very important for... More

This is a place that would rather steal $250 than earn $1500, I paid for a week and after two days I was called to go to WA. to repair power lines after a storm, I said that I would be back and asked for a refund or credit, they said that they didn't give refunds or credits. Bates motel... More
