Reviewed 5 January 2017

I stayed here for some local business and had a great stay. I think the most difficult part of staying here was that it is next to an In-n-out and the smells made me hungry. Fortunately the smells didn't penetrate the hotel. All the same, I would recommend a room facing away from the main road/hamburger restaurant. The hotel restaurant...

So, I'm giving it three stars based on the great service and staff. The place looks a lot nicer than it is in the photographs. The bedding is great, but they're covering cheap old mattresses that were definitely not replaced in the last remodel in February. The only thing that is worse than the mattress were the really awful pillows....

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I do apologize that your accommodations were not up to your expectations. Our new pillow system is a "Brand Standard" and required by Holiday Inn. I apologize you were not comfortable. We are a full service Holiday Inn, unlike an Express, meaning that we have a full service restaurant and...

This Holiday in was quiet and comfortable. Close to the Auburn museums and historic district, and right off the freeway. A safe area, and with an In and Out Burger right next door. Buffet breakfast was available for a fee. $5 if pre-ordered, $8 walk in. No table/menu service for breakfast.

I stayed here last year and returned this year because of the nice rooms, nice people, and adjacent restaurant. I expected to have breakfast there the next morning, but the restaurant hours no longer included breakfast hours. The breakfast service was very slow last year, but if you weren't in a hurry it was OK. When I return next year...

Clean, modern. Nice size rooms, with an office like desk, king size bed, wall mounted big screen tv, good size bathroom with plenty of counter space. Friendly staff. Fitness room equipment in need of updating, tv was not working.

A Holiday Inn can be inconsistent in my experience. THIS Holiday Inn should give lessons to the rest! So much nicer than any I've ever stayed at! The courtyard around the pool is so lovely. The breakfast was hearty, with fantastic omlettes made to order & great bacon. The room was modern & spacious. The lighting detail around the bed...

Rooms were just fine, swimming pool a little cold but great going back and forth between Jacuzzi. Great deal on breakfast $5.00 if you stay there, kids under 5 eat free and eggs as you like. Good bar and restaurant as well.

Stayed here two nights while on business. Max's restaurant was great! Looked liked several locals frequent the place as well. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable. There was no drain plug, not sure if this was on purpose or not, but couldn't take a bath. The business center was clean, copier and computers worked. All staff was polite and welcoming. Easy...
