Best Western Plus Garden Court Inn

Certificate of Excellence

I travel from Reno to the SF bay area several times a year and always stay at the Golden Key in Auburn. The staff at the GK is especially friendly and helpful. The grounds are well kept and the flowers and shrubs are very welcoming.

Thank you very much!

What a very nice review. The staff works very hard to take care of our guests be it at the front desk, housekeeping or maintenance. Then when I show them this type of response it brightens their day.

Thank you gain!

While this is an older hotel, the property is well-maintained, and our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff were not only friendly, but very well-trained. The only issue we had was a "dead" TV, and within minutes of reporting the problem, a technician checked it out, and we were offered a different room and help to move. We were only staying one night en route to our son's home, so we thanked them for the offer, and said we'd just forego TV (not a big loss) for the night. When checking out, we were pleasantly surprised with a discount for the inconvenience. We didn't ask for that, nor complain about the TV, but BW offered the discount on their own. That service attitude wins our repeat business every time.

The hotel looks more like an apartment building than a hotel which is awesome! The decor is lovely, the rooms super spacious, and the beds are the absolute BEST! We'd been driving from Philly to San Francisco and stayed only at Best Western hotels. This one in Fremont, CA is by far the VERY BEST! Even the free breakfast totally hit the spot. I am coming back here for sure!

We have stayed at the Garden Court Inn before, and this time it was an ok experience, not great. The hotel was having a new cable/dish service upgrade and so for quite a few hours during our multi-day stay we had no TV. Not that big of a deal normally but there was a bowl game that we had looked forward to seeing. There was no warning from the office that we would have this issue. We had to call them and we were told they did not know they would be doing this process that day. We understood, things happen. Breakfast was also not up to par. Maybe they need to have another worker help the lone lady who tried to keep up with the demands of breakfast. Several times things ran out, yet we saw she was working very hard to keep up with everything. We also did not notice any fruit (frozen or fresh) on any of the mornings we were there. The other offerings were great, but boy we really wanted some fruit. We overheard someone one morning mentioning some not-yet-ripe apples that had been available earlier. I would also recommend that management purchase more tables in a smaller size. Having large tables was probably a good idea in theory, but in practice few people want to eat with strangers. I also noticed several people having trouble eating at the heavy iron tables in the lobby area. Older folks in particular had difficulties pulling out the chairs or pulling the chairs up to the table to eat close enough. We slept well, as the beds are comfortable, but we noticed this time that the sheets and towels seemed not as soft. Maybe a fabric softener would help? We had a good stay and we will stay here again, we just would like the Garden Court to be the best it can be and make more customers like us even happier to return.

No unpleasant surprises. The staff was helpful and courteous, really excellent staff. There is plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby. They service a decent buffet breakfast, included in the cost of the room. When you travel as much as I do, all of this is considered to be a Great value!

Good location, right off freeway. Walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Nice staff. Rooms are a little rough around the edges. Older decorations, etc. Nice big fridge in room. OK for one night on a business trip.

I thank you for your response. "Just OK' is not an acceptable response for the hotel as far as the Staff is concerned! Please call the hotel anytime and ask for the General Manager so I can further discuss any concerns you may have had with the hotel. Our guest is our priority!

The Best Western Plus in Fremont has a lot going for it. It is great value for the price. The entire staff is extremely friendly and competent. At check in the desk manager made it clear that they were there to help with anything needed. After a long, tiring day flying cross-country, this is what I like to hear. However, I was so late checking in, my room was way back in the back building and up a flight of stairs. I guess someone has to get the last room.

My room had been very recently updated, it was quite large and spotlessly clean. Everything in the room was new and worked perfectly. There was in-room coffee and tea, iron, large flat screen TV, quiet efficient heating/cooling and free high speed internet. The bed was very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was also good.

The only reason I didn't give this hotel a Very Good rating was the sleep quality. At approximately 6 AM (6:05, 6:07) every other morning was the racket of the garbage pick-up, which seemed to be taking place right outside my room. I don't know if the garbage men in this area go out of their way to make as much noise as possible...but it sure seems that way. An otherwise Very Good hotel

Room Tip: Ask for one of the first floor (no elevator), updated rooms, away from the garbage pick-up.
