Ewwwww....

So, it's a cheap place to crash. But for $71 and a two-star rating, I expect some minimal standards of cleanliness and amenities.

To be fair--The Good:
* Wi-fi was free.
* Tub unit was almost new.
* The bathroom area was clean.
* Gal @ front desk was very nice.
* And...that's it

To be brutally honest--The Bad:
* Carpet had huge chewing gum (I hope?) and other stains everywhere.
* Phone, alarm clock, remote, etc. were filthy (OK, nobody uses hotel phones, but this one was about 20 years old and looked like it had never been cleaned).
* Walls and doors had unidentified stains and scuff marks.
* Bathroom looked like it had been drywalled with a shovel.
* TV didn't work.
* Furniture was battered and sagging.
* Sheets and towels scratchy, blanket thin and threadbare. Didn't even want to look at the bedspreads.
* And, of course, the clientele were partying much of the night.

Management, if you're reading this, visit Room 208. I ain't exaggeratin'.

My wife and I decided to plan a last minute snowboarding trip after hearing about the record snowfall in Tahoe. We did not want to drive through the heavy snow at night so we decided to stay in auburn and leave in the morning. We were a little skeptical about this place based on some of the reviews, but it turned out to be great! Very friendly manager, very clean rooms (my wife is a clean freak), Hot tub and pool on site, and complimentary continental breakfast. A perfect stopping point on the way to ski/snowboard, (only 70 miles or so to most resorts from auburn). Makes your overall snowboarding trip a lot cheaper by not staying in an expensive tahoe cabin. Will definitely be staying here more often, me and my wife got season passes to northstar and plan on making a lot more day trips.

Me and 2 friends decided to stay at the Super 8 Auburn on a last minute snowboardin trip. We got a good price on the room and had a great stay. Have stayed here in the past and the experience wasn't as great. This time the staff was extremely friendly and even got us a discount for our liftickets. The clean spa after a long day of snowboaring and complimentary breakfast was an added bonus. Have stayed in other motels in the area and this one probably has the best view of auburn. Would definately stay there again and reccomend it to others.

We wanted to take a last minute trip to visit Grass Valley and Nevada City. Unfortunately the combination of last minute booking, mid-sized dog and baby limited our choice - actually there was nothing available near those cities. We found the Super 8 in Auburn that had a room plus no problem with either the baby or dog. We booked it and was pleasantly surprised to find the room only cost $80 a night (our budget was $150 a night).

I looked at the reviews of the hotel after booking and realized that we may have booked a lemon. However when we got there it actually wasn't that bad. It wasn't great either, but for money it was good enough. The service manager was really helpful and pleasant. Our baby and dog soon trashed the room and we were relieved that we hadn't booked a more expensive place. Since we were mostly in Nevada County for the day and evening we just used the room just to sleep.

We laughed at the irony that we had paid good money to stay at a cheap motel when we live in a beautiful cabin in the trees in Mill Valley but hey there's nothing like getting away for a break from the routine.

We wouldn't stay at the hotel again if we had a choice - we were desperate - and now that we know the area we will book well in advance and probably rent a cabin in future (hotel rooms are too small for a small child and dog).

As long as your expectations are realistic you should be fine. Our impression of the hotel was certainly better than some of these other reviews.

I won't be staying here again. We drove 13 hours and made reservations and were told "oops, I forgot to hit save in the computer...your room was given to someone else." Rooms weren't very clean and the staff was not very friendly.
