Reviewed 7 August 2014

11 family members stayed at BWGK, Auburn for 3 nights .Each one of us were impressed with the helpful staff, clean rooms, and willingness of the staff to be of service at a moments notice. We felt safe at all times in our rooms and pool areas. Never a worry about pool towels, coffee in rooms, clean towels, etc. Our stay was wonderful and we will certainly stay there again when in the area.

good place to be able to stay with 6 family members in one room-- not always easy to do. Breakfast other than the waffles was pretty average. No skim milk. Good staff. Wifi worked. Pool area good for kids. Room worked, fridge good sized.

Boyfriend and I stayed here for one night on our trip to California. Nice staff, great location. Rooms weren't anything to write home about but they got the job done. Nice large bed, large bathroom, tv, free wireless. Great place to stay to break up a road trip.

I was very pleased with my stay, the hotel was very clean along with the room and pool/spa. It was quiet even though it is close to the freeway. Great location easy off and on. I would stay again if i ever visit this area.

We enjoyed our stay and found many pluses--and only one drawback. Here our my notes:
1. Room:clean, with great ac, although it was 93 degrees outside.
2. They had us set for a smoking room but at our request changed us to non-smoking, even though they were fully booked.
3. Our room seemed more spacious with the raised ceiling. The tall shower head was perfect for my 6'2" husband. Plenty of water pressure.
4. Cute automated jelly bean dispenser, but skip it. The candies tasted stale.
5. Pool and jacuzzi spotless, refreshing.
6. With the discounted rate our group got, this place was a bargain.
7. Included breakfast was expanded continental--waffle machine, hard-boiled eggs, etc. Fine for us!
8. Small pets accepted, but we didn't see or hear any.
9. I liked the grassy, shaded area with 4 picnic benches next to the pool

The one drawback: no Fitness center

Room Tip: Ask for the farthest building to minimize highway noise

This was an excellent hotel. We truly enjoyed our stay. The room was large and very clean and comfortable. Check in was very simple and the amenities were wonderful. The pool was great! Price was fair and hotel staff was the best. Hotel is near many restaurants and places for entertainment. Breakfast was very good and kept stocked. Visit IN and OUT burgers!

I was thrilled to find, when I called the Golden Key 24 hours after my checkout, that they had found and logged in my wireless mouse, which I had left in my motel room. At least some this motel is operating as one should.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about out our hotel when you stayed with us last. I am so glad to see that the wireless mouse you had left behind was recovered. We have a very good system of logging in forgotten items and holding them until they are claimed by their owners, and I am happy to see that it works. We hope you will return to stay with us again in the near future.
