I found this hotel due to the fact we were traveling to Auburn, Alabama for a funeral but needed a pet friendly hotel. I'll try to break up this review in sections. We stayed for 1 night.
The hotel has plenty of free parking and finding it was fairly easy, just get off the interstate and head down the main highway, hotel is on the right once you get to the campus. Location wise the hotel is in a great location as it's basically on Auburn University campus, with very attractive park like areas surrounding the hotel and nice wide sidewalks (perfect for walking your dog). This was a major plus.
Lobby is very nice and staff greeted us promptly and check in was a breeze. Every staff member we saw in the lobby always greeted us with a smile and a greeting. They also seemed very knowledgeable. We had reserved a deluxe king room and a double bed room, each for $120/night.
One of the rooms we had was a deluxe king room which had a nice large tub, modern furniture, and dark hardwood/tile type floors. The other room we reserved was a double bed room which had 2 twin size beds (note, these are not queen size beds), a walk-in shower and carpet/tile type floors. We really enjoyed our room, beds did have slightly scratchy sheets but honestly it didn't really affect me.
We didn't order room service or eat lunch or dinner in the restaurant downstairs so I cannot comment on that but we did eat breakfast there. It was a buffet style breakfast, with everything from made-to-order omelettes to lemon poppy-seed cake. Very nice selection and the staff was very quick to pour freshly squeezed orange juice or fresh coffee. The breakfast was $11.50 per person, so keep this in mind. You can also charge it to the room which is always nice.
Although I didn't use the fitness center during our stay I did pass by it several times and they had several nice modern machines and it looked really clean with fresh towels laid out.
Check-out was a breeze just like check-in and I thought this was important note that you can ask them to check-out late, up to 2pm without getting charged extra. If you check-out between 2pm-4pm you'll get charged half a day extra, and if you check-out after 4pm you'll get charged a full day.
They don't charge a pet fee but they do charge a refundable deposit upon check-in and refunded back to you after you check-out and the room is cleaned by housekeeping and they find no damage done by your pet.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone traveling to the Auburn, Alabama area. We really enjoyed our stay there and would stay again if our travels bring us to Auburn in the future.
