At the front desk, Mr. Rich C., assisted me in putting up 2 family members for a weekend stay (Aug. 8-10th). Because I wasn't quite sure how to book 1 night with hotel points & the other on a credit card & still have the pair assigned to the same room for both nights, being a local, I went in...

Very comfortable and clean rooms. We stayed for one night while we were visiting friends. The service at checkin and throughout out our stay was wonderful. We left several items in iur room and Rich and front desk was very accommodating and mailed them to us.

The check-in service was speedy and pleasant, as was the checkout. The plastic keys didn't work very well, sometimes not at all....I had to get a new one from the front desk a couple of times in the two days that I was there. The lobby was nice; they even had a bookshelf with books on it that one could...

Thank you for taking your time to write a review for the Holiday Inn. We appreciate hearing from our guests and thank you for your kind words about our front office staff and our lobby. Our keys on the other hand appear to be an issue, and thank you for saying something, as we will get on this right away!...

Yes the hotel is clean. But it should be for the price. I checked in at 9-30pm and left at 7am and had to beg for a decent rate. It was still to expensive for a hotel off the interstate. I wandered looking for an ice machine, no signage. When I checked in there was a customer at the desk...

Thank you for taking the time to write. We are sorry to hear that you had problems with your key, I will have our chief engineer check the doors as this should not happen. Regarding your a/c unit, I do apologize that it wasn't up to your satisfaction. Our houseman has put that unit on our "maintenance request form" and...

We visited this hotel by chance. It is one of the cleanest we've found. There is a In and Out burger next door. The hotel restaurant, Max, was good, but quite expensive. The laundry area was good, but could use a cleaning. $2.00 for washing, $2.00 for drying. Both washer and dryer are small, so I had to do 2...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for the Auburn Holiday Inn. We very much appreciate hearing from our guests. IHG rewards members should get a 2pm check out here at our hotel. I will address this issue and thank you for saying so. We hope you will return to Auburn, soon.

My husband and i booked a room here for our in-town date night. Everything started out ok. Was great that they offer two free drinks for Max's as well as wine tasting in the lobby. The room was also nice and clean, but we had several problems with our key card. It took multiple times to get it to work...

I'm very sorry you are upset about our smoking fee. It is very expensive to do what is necessary to get the room back to our standard. It requires a lot of extra cleaning and a machine to run if someone smokes in a NON SMOKING room. The keys were certainly an issue for you and for that I do...

We stayed here before our flight home. We had spent a few days in Reno. We stayed at a different hotel in the area our first night that was cheaper but decided to stay here our last night.

This is a basic motel in a good location. Don't expect great amenities, but the hotel is clean and well-maintained. Very nice and professional staff. Good base of operations for work or being a tourist.

Second time at this hotel and loved it as much as I did the first time. Staff was very friendly especially at check-in.

Checked in very late at night, did not have the king bed available but it was nice, clean and quiet. Close to the highway is a big plus. Good stop for overnight travelers. Triple sheets, flat screen and clean room. The bathroom towels were big and their shampoos were a good brand.
