My husband and I stayed at Springside Inn last month. At first I was nervous, when we arrived, the building was pretty but appeared to need updating. The entrance foyer was extremely old fashioned and a bit musty smelling, and the common areas (wher we checked in, where breakfast was served) was just downright dingy. But, all of the rooms have been restored, and our room was absolutely spectacular. We had a king room, with a clawfoot tub. It was one of the niucest rooms we have stayued in, particularly for the price. We peeked in some of the other guest rooms and all were just as nice.
The owner was not present at all, so if you are looking for personalized attention, then you might be put off. There wa a nice album of local attractions in our room which was helpful.
There is so much to see and do in the area, this is a great location for swine tasting, antiquiing, etc. My only advice is that the town of Auburn is a bit nicer in their marketing materials than it is in real life, so yhou might not want to plan too much time in Auburn proper if you visit.
