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... More

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.

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.

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn in Auburn while attending my Grandmother's Funeral. The rooms were large, clean and updated. The onsite bar was great- perfect drinks and deserts. The hotel catered the funeral reception and the food was very good. The bar staff were great at making sure everyone had a drink. Great place to stay.
