This is a basic motel in a good location. Don't expect great amenities, but the hotel is clean and well-maintained. Very nice and professional staff. Good base of operations for work or being a tourist.

Thank you for your comments! We pride ourselves in our location on I-80 and historic Hwy. 49. And walking distance to our historic town of Auburn, with restaurants, bars, boutique shopping and museums.

Second time at this hotel and loved it as much as I did the first time. Staff was very friendly especially at check-in. Upgraded at check in based on IHG status so it pays to join their loyalty program.

My only complaint on this hotel is the wallpaper in the common areas is very ugly and the random pieces of furniture in the hallways look out of place especially since they are not antiques.

Main reason for staying here and coming back is the restaurant Max's located on the second floor. Excellent meals both times I have been there. Wait staff is exceptional. Certainly not your ordinary hotel restaurant.

Used the work out room and equipment was new and clean.

Overall great stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool on the corner

Checked in very late at night, did not have the king bed available but it was nice, clean and quiet. Close to the highway is a big plus. Good stop for overnight travelers. Triple sheets, flat screen and clean room.
The bathroom towels were big and their shampoos were a good brand.

I really enjoyed my stay here. Bring a business card and they will make you a luggage tag. The staff is friendly and the rooms are nice and clean. Their restaurant is a little expensive, but it is quite good.

The hotel is just off the interstate highway, yet quiet. Staff are very helpful and friendly. We attended a wedding, and the hotel was a wonderful place for informal gatherings surrounding that event in the pool area. Wedding events were elsewhere; however, the post-wedding brunch at the hotel was very nice. The old town is a short walk or drive and well worth a visit. The hotel's restaurant is a good value with breakfast especially nice. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Location is 35 miles from the Sacramento airport. Highly recommended for a relaxing stay.

Room Tip: If stairs are a challenge, request a room near the elevator to avoid walking around the perimeter of...

I have stayed at several different Holiday Inn locations across the US and this one is in the top 5 for service, not so much for their decor, but the service I received was outstanding. From check in to check out, the staff here was willing to go above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed. I was even upgraded to a suite. I would recommend this location to anyone who is needing a place to stay around Sacramento. I would drive 20 miles out of my way to stay here again. Anyone can give you a room for your money, but the service is something not every hotel has, even when paying a lot more. these guys should be the model for Holiday Inn locations everywhere. Thank you for the wonderful experience, I will be back!

We stayed here for four nights because of a family funeral. The place is clean (I'm a neat freak), well-run, pretty updated, and quiet. I don't understand the complaints about highway noise, unless the travelers in question are from small towns or something. The most I heard was a little exuberance from the In-and-Out Burger down the hill, and it calmed down quickly.

We stayed in a King Suite so that we could spread out a bit. The place is not super luxurious--it's a Holiday Inn--but it's convenient and an ideal motel for visiting Auburn. My only small beef was with the water pressure and really high shower head.

Room Tip: The King Suite is a good choice, albeit a little expensive, and seemed very quiet.
