Stayed here for 2 nights with a large group of over 150 people. The location is great in the Sierra Foothills and within walking distance to downtown Auburn. The hotel offers all of the amenities anyone could possibly desire. They have a great restaurant for lunch and dinner and offer up a full hot breakfast and make custom omelets to... More

Fine place to stay in Auburn. Away from the tourist area yet close enough to be in the middle of the attraction and restaurants of the old town section. Easy access to restaurants and pleasantness of the "other" Auburn as well. The attached restaurant, Max's, is well, ok, but nothing special however it does provide an inexpensive breakfast through the... More

I stayed in a new remodeled room one day, the beds were so comfortable. The room was quite and I would stay again. The only negative was that the curtains showed the light in from the front driveway. If they had a darker curtain like some of the other Holiday Inn's I would have loved my stay. But I woke... More

Like this place as it is well situated for the town and the interstate. Good sized rooms that are well appointed. Cookies and drinks on arrival. Express check out as standard. In'N'Out Burger just below the hotel. Wifi only works when you are sat on the toilet for some bizarre reason!

This was a great place to stay. Clean renovated rooms. Beds a little to firm for me but other than that I enjoyed staying. Breakfast was not included but for $5 you could enjoy the breakfast buffet which was amazing. Close to highway so would be a great place to stay if you are traveling to the snow.

Very nice hotel. Clean, close to highway and to town. Although breakfast is not included, hotel guests can purchase a breakfast buffet voucher for $5. The restaurant is on site and the buffet is excellent. Omelets made to order, fresh fruit, bacon, sausages, biscuits, bagels, muffins, cereal, coffee and juice. The bed was extremely comfortable. Nice outdoor pool area.

The renovations are comprehensive, justifying any cost above the competition. New everything--beds, cabinets, fixtures, bedding, carpeting, refrigerator, and a good size flat screen TV mounted on wall/pedestal with lots of station choices. The bathroom mirror is large and beautifully lit as well as is the vanity area. Both have granite counters. Lots of outlets for charging devices. Coffeemaker. Quiet rooms... More
