My wife and I stayed at the HI Auburn the night before my niece's wedding and this is a great place. Modern, clean, friendly staff, good restaurant and bar. Many friends of the bride and groom stayed here and I did not hear a negative comment. So if you are looking for a good place to stay in this area... More

There was a lot of people in the halls and for some reason the staff kept leaving the cleaning carts in front of our rooms and they kept going back to them making noise. Also strange that there was a hallway just filled with chairs and things blocking an exit...

We were visiting family in Auburn and booked into this hotel. We have had good experience with this chain and found another winner. It's located near the intersection of HWY 80 and the Grass Valley Highway. Highway access is easy. There is a restaurant on the premises and fast food just a small walk away. The room was comfortable -... More

My friend and I were in the area for a health conference and stayed here for 4 nights. The staff was friendly and check in was very quick. In our room there were only 5 hangers so we asked for more. There is no safe and no microwave. We asked for a microwave but they only had about 5 and... More

We traveled as couples around the Gold Country. This Holiday Inn has a great restaurant, and a nice buffet breakfast. Unfortunately the pool wasn't heated while we were there, and some of the gym equipment wasn't working. Overall, a great little place to stop for the night.

One of the more comfortable rooms I've stayed in. Slept like a baby in the comfortable bed, and there were reading lights on both sides, perfect for couples. The service was excellent, and the food at the restaurant, Max's, was better than most hotel food. They also have a good wine list and many quality beers on tap. Nice pool,... More

I stay at this Hotel regularly for work travel and it is a convenient location (just off of I-80) yet is tucked off the highway enough that road noise isn't an issue.

I was impressed with this updated Holiday Inn compared to years ago when I stayed in a lot of Holiday Inns. The furnishings were modern and clean with flat screen TV, deep drawers, plenty of outlets, desk and mini-fridge (not stocked so there is lots of room for your own drinks or food). The room was large and it was... More
