“If you have low standards, maybe you'll be fine here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

I booked a one-night stay here to visit some family on last minute notice, so I was just looking for something cheap. "How bad could it be?" I thought.

When we arrived, I was surprised to find that the front desk clerk required us to present IDs of everyone staying in the room, not just the person who made the reservation. I figured that wasn't a good sign. As we approached our room, there was a group of shady-looking guys in the room next to ours, drinking a ton and it looked like they were giving one guy a tattoo. Neat. Not the hotel's fault, but that should give you a sense of the typical customer at this place.

When we got into our room, we found that many of the lights were not working, the telephone was not working, and there were cigarette burns in the comforter. The floor was a little damp. Neat. The room smelled of cigarette smoke, and I realized I hadn't requested a nonsmoking room.

I went to the front desk to request a change to nonsmoking, and to the staff's credit, they did it without much trouble.

Still, I would never stay here again. There are other hotels right nearby that are nothing fancy, but much cleaner and less frightening. Don't book here just to save a few bucks unless you are desperate and don't mind a damp, poorly-functioning room and questionable neighbors.

I have tried staying here 3 times because of its proximity to where a come to work at in Auburn and 3 times it has been unacceptable. The managers who live on site set a very unfriendly tone and the staff follows right along.

The rooms are marginal at best and the continental breakfast items are packaged baked goods from the grocery store.

I will find some where else in the area or stay closer to Sacramento and make the little bit of extra drive.

Though the rooms were not spotless, we had a great stay at an excellent price. Very satisfied with the customer service level. Their breakfast was subpar but hey it was free. We will definitely be spending another visit here as it is only one hour away from Boreal and two nights here cost the same as one night there.

Refrigerator didn't work. Carpet was damp, grossly stained, and smelled musky. Toilet had to be flushed through the tank. Lady in office said I should have complained earlier. She was inconvenienced?
