“Wonderful spot to stay”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Very clean and friendly motel. Staff was wonderful. The facility was well-kept. Impressed with pool area and fountain and grass area. Loved the putting green. Place was very quiet. Breakfast was very sufficient. Loved the double sinks outside the shower/toilet area. Very nice and great when staying in a room with others.

Passed this motel many times over the years and finally had to stay there. Rooms were clean and large with comfortable King bed. Had refrig, microwave, flat screen TV, swimming pool. Room was quiet. Price was right for us too. Would recommend staying here if passing through, or staying in, Auburn, CA.

The staff at this Best Western are awesome. The location is perfect. Easy freeway access and nestled in the Gold Country only an hour away from major destinations, but also a destination of it's own. Great dining nearby and just a few miles from the American River, Foresthill Bridge (sight of the major motion picture XXX), historic Downtown Auburn, museums, wineries, and many more attractions. Auburn is a great place to visit and the locals are very friendly.

This Motel is always clean and comfortable. The outside always has lots of flowers in bloom and is well maintained. We enjoy the pool and spa area as well. The staff is there are several resturants nearby and a shopping center.

We stayed in April for a race. It had a covered pool which the kids enjoyed. I loved the energy saving device by the door - you use your key to turn on the power and the aircon. Clean and comfortable, and great customer service!

Have stayed here about 8 to 10 times. Always stay a night to or from Reno. Property is always well maintaned. Exterior, rooms, lobby and breakfast area. . Greeted by same people for the last 3 years. Had some noisy neighbors one time and the lady at the desk had them quieted down within 5 minutes! Great restuarant (LaBontes) right next door.
