We purchased a mid-week one-night stay in this charming Victorian Inn through Travelzoo for $79 plus $16 tax charged by the inn. Parking is in the lot adjacent to the back gate to the inn. We had booked the Gold Room which has its own private porch with café table and chairs. Since we had a ground floor room, rolling our suitcases down a short distance over the synthetic grass was no problem. The friendly innkeeper Alice showed us around the property- the common rooms are delightfully decorated by the High Tea business which is run out of the inn. We were welcome to use the kitchen refrigerator to store our food we had purchased earlier. If you bring your own tea bags or coffee, you are free to use the kitchen and dishes to prepare your drinks. Alice informed us that besides breakfast our booking included a 5pm snack and two micro brew beers in the adjacent Power Club Irish Pub a few steps from the inn. This is also the place where the sumptuous breakfast is prepared and served personally by the owner of the inn Alfred Lee. Alfred came to greet each guest personally, and we had a delightful chat about the history of the inn. At the discounted rate we did not expect too much, but we were positively surprised. We just wish Auburn were closer to our home in Hawaii so we could visit more often. Yes, as golfnpal noted, one of the lamps was not plugged in, but I easily located the plug under the table. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. Remember that this is an old restored building, so don't get picky about minor inconveniences. If no one is at the front office to answer your questions, call the innkeeper whose phone number is posted all around the property.
