“Friendly Staff with a facility in need of an upgrade”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2012

The hotel is nicely located between Tahoe and Sacramento and has pricing comparable to other facilities in the area. The staff were very friendly and helpful upon checkin making it quick and easy to get from the front desk to your room.

However, the rooms themselves need some face lifts. The facility has made great progress with respect to technology. Upgraded internet and power on the desk make it easy to sit at the "desk" and work without looking for a plug or trying to get the internet to work. The TV is still an old CRT type TV. Desks and tables are worn and the rooms smell of the time when people were allowed to smoke in the rooms.

Despite this the room was still comfortable despite probably being on the low end of value compared to other Comfort Inn hotels I have stayed in.

From the outside, this hotel has a very pleasant appearance, but the hotel is an older property and has not been updated. However, the rooms were clean and had refrigerators and microwaves. The staff works hard and were helpful and friendly. The breakfast had hot entrees as well as the usual breakfast fare.

This hotel is fine for a brief stay.

Our stay with the comfort inn was great. The front desk employees were very nice and check in was very smooth for our 4 rooms. All our rooms were fairly large and all very clean and nice. It is very nice and quiet in the hotel, and the hotel is conviently located next to restaurants, grocery stores, and fast foods. Also the breakfast was pretty good, better than having to pay the Denny's for breakfast. Overall a good stay.

We have stayed there twice now and have not experienced the problems some have reported. The staff at the front desk have been unfailing friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room AWAY from the railroad line!

Clean, spacious, and very comfortable rooms at the comfort inn auburn. We were extremely excited to find this hotel, for such a wallet friendly price. If your in the area, the comfort inn would be my recommendation.

We aren't picky people. We aren't hard to please. We expected a clean room with a decent bed to sleep on, even if the price was a little steep. We checked in at 1am (long irrelevant story that led us to Auburn at 1am, exhausted and ready to sleep). What we found was a large bed with what looked like bodily fluid stains on the sheets, crusty items and more bodily fluid stains on the bedspread, and grime in the bathroom. We were so tired and it was so late, we had no other option but to sleep there, on top of the sheet. Thankfully I had blankets in the car. Gross! Even with my AAA discount, the room was $75 with tax. I was disgusted at the room and angry that I paid so much. I would have been cleaner sleeping in my van, and in restrospect, I should have. Although I don't expect to EVER need lodging in Auburn, CA again, I certainly would not stay here. I'd sleep in my van and shower at a truck stop before paying for this filthy room again. We didn't even try the breakfast, so no comment on that. Judging by the room, we felt we were better off hitting up Denny's for the $2 $4 $6 $8 menu. Who knows what kind of bodily fluid awaited us in the breakfast area??

2 stars because the front desk person was very nice and friendly.

Room Tip: Bring your own sheets.

Stayed here in business. The hotel is conveniently located near the expressway, as well as both fast food and gular restaurants. However, it needs a major remodel. It is old and worn, small and uncomfortable. The bed and pillows are terrible. We did not have hot water one morning so it was a nice early COLD shower. And the general appearance is dirty and dated. Sadly, From the outside looks of the other hotels in Auburn, I'm not sure you can do better. Perhaps a name chnage would help since the Comfort Inn was anything but comfortable.

Room Tip: Stay in Rosevile, CA. It's not that far away.
