This Holiday Inn exceeded all expectations. The facilities were clean and organized. The staff way beyond accommodating and helpful. Our room was large and bed was comfortable. I loved the little library/lounge in the lobby. Would definitely stay there again if I needed to be in the area (we were there for a wedding).

We came here for a wedding and it was a very nice stay. The staff was extremely flexible (giving us a late checkout, which helped a lot as we were traveling with a 2 year old) and it was very clean. The location was convenient and pleasant. I really can't think of anything bad to say about it. Not sure we will be in Auburn again, but we would definitely stay here if we were.

We stayed here on the second night of a short trip up and down historic Hwy 49. We had a room with a king size bed, which was very comfortable. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and nice. A great value all around. The clerk at the check in counter was nice and quite helpful. We were given a certificate for a free drink or dessert at the adjacent restaurant, Max's, which was very nice. We only wish they had a free breakfast in the morning like most other hotels do these days.

The hotel seems to be a popular destination for weddings. It's clean, the staff are very accommodating, the pool is nice enough, and the rooms are very functional. You can get a very good price on a group rate. Food and shopping are nearby.

We were one of 5 wedding groups staying here over the weekend. Rooms are nice-sized and decently decorated. Housekeeping left something to be desired--didn't empty water from ice bucket or remove dirty glasses. The patio is great. Our group of about 25 ordered in pizzas on Saturday and ate on the patio. We were kept company by a coed soccer team which wheeled in a grill and had their own party--worked out great. Had 1 dinner and 2 breakfasts at Max's, the in-house restaurant. Food was good, not trendy, and I thought reasonably priced. Breakfast was the same I've paid recently at places like Denny's and IHOP. The restaurant was way under-staffed on Friday morning, however, which led to long delays in service. The hotel has guest laundry facilities, but, be aware--it consists of one washer and one dryer, so don't arrive thinking you can do a couple loads of laundry at the same time. The elevator is a long way from the lobby, but if you have a 200-numbered room, you can park at a back entrance and come in on the second floor and avoid the elevator.

We stayed here for a family wedding and reunion….hotel was clean and with good amenities. Reservations were a little botched up, so if you have a family function in this area double check before arrival. They are very busy on weekends for weddings in the Sierres! Max's Restraurant is good with nice service and food. Rooms are clean with good amenities. Just double check reservations before arrival!!!

Room Tip: Make sure you have a room!!!!!!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for a nephews wedding. We were one of seven (!) wedding parties there that night. The Inn was busy but they were very friendly and helpful. The facility itself is well-appointed and the rooms are a good size. There is a very nice restaurant, Max's, at the end of the hotel; it's a bit pricey, but the food is good. And there's an In-and-Out Burger a few feet away from the hotel entrance, so there is an alternative to the restaurant. The hotel is within easy walking distance from historic old Auburn.
