    « Good and solid Best Western »

    Good in all ways, except right across frontage road from major freeway, so constant freeway noise even in bedrooms. Pretend it's the ocean. It happened that the local Packard car club met there, so looking at 50+ Packard's from the 1930s-1950s was an added treat.

    « Happy vacation »

    I have already been telling people how wonderful everything was at this Best Western I stayed for 7 nights on vacation from out of state. All of the staff did a great job, the service was great. The room was very clean and comfortable.

    « Not our first choice, but it was a comfortable overnight »

    This property is in 50's or 60's style, with no elevators and exterior entries. They apparently had renovated fairly recently. Breakfast was very basic, with no hot items (except toast). There is a lovely rose garden by the entrance to the property, but otherwise nothing worth noting. The managers and desk clerks were very friendly and helpful.

    « Jennifer S, Front Office Manager at Best Western Golden Key, responded to this review »
    Thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay. I'm glad to know you were comfortable. Our motel was built in the 60's but we are constantly working on projects around the property. I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed with our continental breakfast options. The rose garden is lovely and is full of blooms throughout the summer. Just lovely! We have a wonderful Team. I'm pleased to hear you found them to be friendly and helpful. We hope you will stay with us again the next time you are in Auburn, CA!

    Great location right off of Interstate 80. Easy access to Historic Highway 49 winding through Gold Country and old pioneer towns. Close to Starbucks, restaurants and grocery shopping. All the staff was absolutely friendly and accommodating! Thank you for a lovely night's sleep! :))

    « Best Western Golden Key »

    A little noisy because it's practically next to the interstate, but centrally located and easily accessible. Rooms appear to have been recently remodeled. Very comfortable bed, spic-and-span, great staff. I'll be in Auburn again next year (for the same work-related reasons), and will definitely stay here again.

    « Better than expected »

    Stayed three nights with my doggie. Check-in was painless with smiles. The room was clean with many extras included: coffee, shampoo, soap, wi-fi, TV, etc. The towels were pure white and folded in a special way that made me smile. Very nice grass and patio area for walking my dog with poop bags provided. Breakfast treats are included each morning an excellent selection to choose from. Also, grocery store and restaurants nearby. Hot tub wasn't available during my visit.

    I'm pleased to know that we exceeded your expectations! Our Front Desk Team is great. I will let them know you were glad that check-in was painless with smiles. I will let our Housekeeping Team know that there expert folding made you smile. How sweet! I apologize that the hot tub was out of order during your stay. See you next time you are in Auburn, CA!

    « Excellent stop away from large $$$$$ cities! »

    A traditional, comfortable and clean motel, with all modern conveniences, that's well run. Sure beats expensive modern gray and drab hermetically sealed rooms. The area has restaurants and a large grocery store very near. There is some white noise from the highway traffic.

    « Clean, nice stay »

    We stayed here at the last minute on our way up to Truckee. It was late and we wanted to avoid chain controls so we stayed here for the night. Staff is nice and the room was clean and in good condition. Liked having the dual sinks in the bath area. We booked through Priceline right before we arrived. One thing to keep in mind is that the hotel system does not receive info from Priceline for 15-20 minutes so you may have to wait until they receive the information.

    « Jennifer S, Front Office Manager at Best Western Golden Key, responded to this review »
    Thank you for taking the time to review us! I'm pleased to know you were happy with the quality of our Team and the cleanliness of our rooms. We have the dual sinks in all of our rooms with 2 queen sized beds. Unfortunately, when you book thru another company we have to wait until they send us the reservation. You can call us directly to book next time to curb the inconvenience. We hope to see you again!

    « One night stay »

    We found the room to be very clean with comfortable beds. The room wasn't updated and the hotel has exterior doors to the rooms, which always gives me the feeling of dirty carpets. No fault of BW. Staff was extremely helpful, from reserving a room for us at SF airport BW the next night, to housekeeping making sure my Kindle made it home to the east coast! Breakfast was hot and tasty.

    « 15+ Years and going strong »

    This Motel has always gone the extra mile for my wife and I( even before we were handicapped) and now more than ever ! The Location in Auburn is wonderful, easy in and out from the free-way and all the stores and dinning to suite most needs, ( close). But what really sets them apart is there Management and the staff: Everybody goes the extra mile from the front desk, maids ,pool and grounds people. Everyone smiles and ask if they can help you in any way. In addition, we have always enjoyed a clean room and updated fixtures and hope to keep coming back for many years! Jim & Sandy Hulbert p.s. the pool and pool area is wonderful, all year!!

    « Jennifer S, Front Office Manager at Best Western Golden Key, responded to this review »
    Thank you for the 5 star review! I knew that you and your wife had been staying with us for a long time but did not realize it has been 15 years!

We look forward to seeing you for many years to come!

    « Another nice stay »

    We have stayed at the Best Western Golden Key Inn in Auburn several times during the past few years. It is a convenient stop between Southern CA and Humboldt County, where we have relatives in both area. The employees at the Golden Key are all extremely friendly and helpful. We like the old west decor and the comfort of the rooms. The breakfast area is clean and kept replenished by their excellent help. The pool is nice in the summer time, and the cookies upon arrival are always welcomed.

    Thank you for the 5 star review and for being a loyal guest! We appreciate you! We will have some fresh cookies ready for you the next time you stay. See you soon!

    « Best Place To Stay in Auburn CA! »

    The Best Western Golden Key, Auburn CA is the best place to stay in that area. Also great if travelling on I-80 between S.F. Bay Area/Sacramento and Reno/points east. Clean, safe, great amenities, fair pricing, helpful staff who make you feel at home. Conveniently located off I-80. Walking distance to great restaurants.

    « A Good Nights Stay »

    Stayed at the Best Western to attend the Nevada City Victorian Christmas Faire. It was a restful stay and the faire was delightful. Auburn is a quaint gold country town with lots of cute shops, local restaurants, and a quiet, sleepy environment. Highly recommend it for a visit.

    « Nice Room »

    This is a very reasonable room for the price. The room was very comfortable and very clean. Staff was also very friendly. My only disappointment was the hot tub. On my arrival and check in I was told that the hours for the hot tub were 7p-10p and that they had special towels at the front desk for that purpose. That was great and worked well until I went and got my towels. Its after 7pm and the hot tub had a closed sign on it. I asked the front desk if it was closed or was the sign an error, he explained that he didn't know why, but the hot tub was closed and we couldn't use. I was very disappointed since this was one of the main reasons I chose this location.

    « Jennifer S, Front Office Manager at Best Western Golden Key, responded to this review »
    I am pleased to know you found your room comfortable and clean and our Team to be friendly. We are very lucky to have such a phenomenal Team. I will be sure to pass your comments along to them. However, I do apologize that our hot tub was out of order during your stay. We did unexpectedly have to call a repair person to come fix our jets. I hope you will give us another try.

    « Nice, clean and friendly; good breakfast »

    Needed an easy place to stay overnight. Very friendly, clean and updated. The room was nicely done and nice amenities. The hotel is easy to get in and out of and the breakfast is the standard nice selection of yogurts, baked goods, waffles, hard boiled eggs, etc. I like that option when you are on the go.

    « The Best in Auburn and Dog Friendly »

    Traveling with a big dog can be challenging, but Best Western Golden Key makes it easy. Not only are the rooms spacious, clean and comfortable; the property is beautifully maintained with thoughtfully planted trees, roses and a lawn in front . A reasonable pet fee with no weight restriction makes it a no brainer. Pet rooms are grouped together in a specific part of the hotel, so those traveling without pets can take comfort that their stay won't be interrupted by the furry friends of others. Truly the best place to stay in the Auburn area.

    « The positives far outweigh the negatives »

    I give this hotel a grade of "A-". The service was excellent. Given that there are only a handful of hotels to choose from in Auburn, this hotel stands out. They don't have much competition, but they don't use that fact as a selling point. You can tell they put time, energy and thought into the layout, amenities and services they provide. Breakfast was on point. Great selection and plenty of space to dine in. The location is superb and highway accessible. The service was as it should be. We asked for an extra pillow and blanket, and they delivered in a timely manner. Only negatives were they did not make a big deal of the fact that I'm a Gold level member. That's a detail that loyal customers like me want appreciated. Some sort of tangible "thank you" would have been nice. Also, there's a considerable edge between the walkway and entrance to our hotel room...probably 4 to 5 inches. That's a tripping hazard and a potential health risk. If someone falls and gets injured, that's a lawsuit waiting to happen. Other than that, this hotel could easily be an affordable alternative to pricier Tahoe options. Job well done!

    Thank you for staying with us. We do value our reward members and thank you for choosing Best Westerns for your travel needs. We thank you for being a Gold member.

    « Pleasant Overnight Stay »

    I arrived for a one-night stay and greeted by a very friendly staff. The property is very convenient to food and other services. I was able to get some laundry done; for which I was very grateful. The room was on the 2nd floor, but close to stairs. I like the little picnic area provide and relief area for pets. I had a breakfast date with friends so I didn't get to experience the Inn's breakfast. However, from a service standpoint I would stay again.

    Best Western Plus is a better option than regular Best Western. I stay in B.W P Brookside on Nov. 17 2017 and B.W. Golden Key on Nov. 16th 2017. I can feel that these two are totally 2 different levels. I can see that Best Western Hotel Golden Key un-changed bed cover and pet smell in room. Best Western Plus is absolutely perfect!!

    « Always a pleasure to arrive here »

    We stay at this property several times a year while visiting family. Have for several years now. The thing that really strikes a note is how pleasant the whole staff is. And how well the property is maintained.We can see from every visit up-grades are being made. From soothing color palate in the rooms to up-graded TV service. While not always having the morning breakfast we go in and get a cup of coffee and visit with the counter people and the lady that puts out the "vittles". Most have been there for years. That says a bunch.! Cindy the GM does a remarkable job.

    The Golden Key is a little treasure in the Gold Country. It is very well maintained, always clean, always friendly staff and as accommodating as they can be.

    « Great Motel With Hotel Attributes »

    I am accustomed to staying at Marriott and hilton hotels, but this establishment was close to our destination venue, so we decided to give it a try. My wife and I are very pleasantly surprised with this location. It was very comfortable and all of the staff that we had contact with went out of their way to ensure our satisfaction and the pleasantness of our stay. We stayed two nights and enjoyed the included hot breakfast that was offered. While it is an older motel it has been obviously well maintained and modernized for the times. I would definitely recommend this location to friends and relatives and would absolutely stay again, should the opportunity arise. Kudos to the management and staff!

    Nice place to stop on the way to Tahoe. Clean, lots of plugs, coffee maker etc/. Some road noise. I had commitments so I could not leave from the Bay Area until 9:30PM. I didn't want to drive all the way, so I stopped at the BW Golden Key on the way. It was a good decision.

    Great place, reasonable price, comfy beds with lots of pillows. Even though it is off a busy street with the interstate near, you don't hear a thing once your door is shut. Staff so friendly, clean grounds, easy parking right up to your room. If your traveling with a pet the make sure you are on the lower level so you don't have to keep going up and down the stairs to take out the dog. Cozy little sitting area, tables, BBQ, walk the dog. Clean pool and spa.

    Over the past 3 years, we have stayed at the Best Western Golden Key Inn in Auburn, and it will remain our motel of choice when in the Auburn area. The employees are very friendly and are willing to help, should there be a necessity. The rooms are good-sized and comfy, and the small refrigerator and microwave, hidden away in the chest of drawers, are a big plus. The pictures of the old gold-mining days are very interesting, as are the pieces of old, authentic furniture in the breakfast area. With the friendliness that exists there, I feel right at home as soon as I walk into the lobby and until I leave. I would highly recommend this motel, with its reasonable rates, cleanliness, pool, and comfort.

    Hotel itself was comfortable but the staff were unfriendly and very unprofessional. I have stayed in hotels all over the United States and Europe and have never been spoken to this way.

    I'm rather picky about hotel rooms, but I was quite impressed here. In most hotel rooms, even much higher priced than this one, you walk in to the vague smell of disinfectant, or there's some deferred maintenance, or it is not quite clean, or the layout is strange. None of that here. Clean and perfectly maintained. Also, the breakfast was great. Make-your-own waffles, a great variety of fresh fruit, yogurt, sausages, and more. Saves money and time going out.

    In the shower was a shampoo/conditioner/soap dispenser, which I suppose was a money saving move by the owners rather than replacing the small single items every day. Not a bad idea, but filling the dispenser with low quality stuff is. At least get your bulk refills at Costco or Walmart, not at the Dollar Store! This was my only complaint. For $89 a night, it was just fine.

The furniture was a bit dated, but that did not bother us one bit. The toiletries provided were also of a good quality. There was also breakfast provided, which was adequate.

    Staff very helpful, and rooms very clean. My main issue was their air conditioning policy. In order to turn on the air, you have to plug your room key in it. This is to keep you from running the air when you are not in the room. I got an extra key so I wouldn't have to put up with this crazy setup, but the coldest the air would get was around 72. I did not sleep at all. In the morning, I beet feet to Idaho without looking back.

    We do use GreenStar system in all of our guestrooms. The system temperature controls all rooms to ensure the rooms will be a comfortable temperature when rooms are unoccupied. This makes sure that our guests will not be going into a room that is blazing hot in the Summer or chilly in Winter. Inserting a room key in the light switch near entry door allows for the system to be controlled by our guests. Our system is set up to go no lower than 68 degrees Fahrenheit. AC units cannot effectively cool a space and run the risk of freezing up or damaging the compressor if set too low. This is standard with all AC units.

    The only real problem for me at this property was the traffic noise, and since the only real reason to stay at a motel is to sleep, this is a problem. We did lose hot water the last morning, but the staff very quickly offered another room for showering. It is conveniently located for several good restaurants within walking distance.

    I am sorry that you were effected by the loss of hot water during your stay. Our Team sprung into action to rectify the issue right away. I am happy that a member of our Team offered you another room to shower in while the issue was being troubleshooted. I see that you were also given a discount for the inconvenience. I apologize for the snafu.

    We were just passing through, came in at night, bought pizza and beer at a convenience store and kept the beer cold in the minifridge in the room. Room was clean and adequate. Not fancy, but good enough. The breakfast was good; again, nothing stupendous, but adequate. Professional management.

    « Clean, but Needs upgrading »

    For the price, this motel is aging and needs to be upgraded. It's fine but nothing special. However, the breakfast is more varied than some; they serve hot food for breakfast as well as the usual. It's convenient to a large grocery store and each room has a fridge and microwave.

    « Seems to be a pretty good place. »

    Plusses: We had a 1st floor king room. It was very well lit, with lots of electrical outlets and an ample work table. The bed was comfortable enough. A microwave and fridge were hidden in the buffet/dresser. It had two (2!!!!) folding luggage racks, a huge plus!! It was well heated. (This was a unseasonably cold wintery day) The tub/shower had a grab bar, but another would have been nice. No mold in the bathroom. Plenty of flat surfaces for your miscellaneous stuff. Breakfast was better than I'm used to at Best Westerns. There were DIY waffles and small pancakes, with boysenberry syrup in addition to the usual stuff, raisin bread (makes great toast!) and condiments (dried cranberries, slivered almonds, granola) for your instant oatmeal and/or yogurt. One negative was the steep drop down when you left the room. I was afraid of missing the step, but it didn't happen. Another big negative was that there was no coffee or tea after breakfast was over. Apparently I just hit a bad time when the breakfast room was being cleaned up, the door was shut, and there was no one at the front desk to ask. I'll probably stay there again if I'm staying in Auburn. It also seems well situated for a stroll around Old Town.

    « Shouldn't have stayed a second time. »

    I stayed here once before by choice, but this time the arrangements were made for me. The room is clean, the bed is comfortable, but...2 things got me this time (#2 is the worst)...1. I am not a coffee drinker and was glad to see they had 2 tea options available. When I woke in the morning I found that both teas were Orange Pekoe (decaf and not). I went to the office and asked for something different, they said they had more options downstairs at breakfast, I told them that defeated the convenience of having a coffee maker in your room, but received no comment and hoped they would correct it the next day as I walked to Starbucks. I left the tea bags out with a note so when the maids came they could change it. The next morning I woke to find the same 2 choices stuffed in the box. Despite my request. On checking out I commented again and they this time told me it was policy to only have one choice in the rooms and they had more choices in at breakfast. I told them that that defeated the convenience of having it in the room and that it would be wiser to have a more generic tea available since not everyone likes Orange. No apology. 2. The heater had a metal grinding noise that went off every hour or so. I as irritating. I didnt sleep the whole night. It was warm the first night and I didnt need it so I couldnt mention it to them. I took a video and showed the manager and they were shocked. I tried to upload it but TA wont take video.

    « Cindy E, General Manager at Best Western Golden Key, responded to this review »
    Dear RicOlsen: I would like to apologize for all the inconvenience you experienced during your stay. We have changed vendors recently and I was not aware that the in room tea was different. I would also prefer a plain black tea like we had before in our rooms. I do thank you for bringing this to my attention. I also apologize that during your second night stay, you were not able to have a good night's sleep. Our maintenance team will investigate the condition of the heater. Please consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with superior customer service. Thank you!

    « Average hotel »

    Needed a last minute stay within 30 minutes of a family visit (couldn't get reservations in Grass Valley). Price and location were right. Hotel was dated but comfortable. Room was typical of rooms that opened to an outside balcony. Door was not tight so air, light and noise entered that way. Staff was good. Breakfast was what you would expect. A reasonable selection, but nothing that's going to make you choose this for the food.

    « overpriced, very loud noise level »

    Older motel, room (king bed) small and clean, fixtures and furnishings have been updated. Faces interstate 80, so road noise is very bad, no sound insulation, big gap under door, large party going on in parking lot behind our room. With good ear plugs and fan going constantly throughout night, could mange some sleep. Wouldn't rate as poor if the cost had been lower, but this was not worth $96 a night.

    « Not particularly romanic, but decent place to get some sleep. »

    We were at first dismayed to see how close to the freeway the hotel was, and I was worried about the noise level at night. Thankfully, we were given a room in the part that was furthest away, and since the back window opened onto a quiet little green space, the noise problem was fixed. The room was basic but clean, and the beds comfortable. Breakfast could have had more options, but also ok. Overall - nothing to gush about, and nothing to complain about.

    When our son went to college, we started finding more reasons to travel. The more we went, the more we started gravitating toward BW. Their hotels always seemed to be nicer and their people always were helpful. The Golden Key is a few miles from my Brother-in-laws house and when we stayed in Auburn, theirs was the first hotel we tried and we were not disappointed. They have taken excellent care of us, which includes my handicapped wife and sometimes physically challenged Mother-in-law, with excellent service and a friendly demeanor. We have even brought our dogs and they loved it, too.

After our first stay there, we realized this would now become our halfway stopping point.

    This is a lovely property with swimming pool and hot tub. The grounds are well maintained, well lighted at night and we were in the back building away from traffics and it was blessedly quite. The rooms are spacious, clean and inviting. The staff is professional, knowledgeable and friendly. This property is close to hiking, gold panning, skiing, museums (the CourtHouse Museum was interesting and the building its self is lovely, and the Bernhardt House was also well restored and worth a look see). An extended Continental breakfast is excluded with your stay. Waffles, cereal, pastries, fruit, juice, milk, coffee, and on the weekends exclude eggs and sausage.

    Best Western Auburn: very nice place. Location is good. My room (185) was large, clean and well laid out. Internet (5/5) was excellent, both wifi and ethernet. Sheets are clean, water is piping hot, the woman at check-in was very pleasant and helpful. My room had twin sinks. My room had a side table for the easy chair with a trapezoid shaped top, i. e. the top tapered, almost like an optical illusion, so it was easier to fit in a corner. The building style is older, with no interior corridors. To make the electricity work in the room, you have to insert your key into a slot, like in Europe. Breakfast is as expected. Negatives: no elevator. My door didn't always open when I put the key in the door lock - the light went on, but the door wouldn't open. Value 5/5. Overall 5/5.

    Stayed on a visit to William Jessup University to see our daughter. Got in late but front office friendly and got us right in. Beds were comfortable and rooms nice and clean. Quiet sleep with no noise even though we were on a main road. In the morning the breakfast was fine with many options. Great spot as we were only needing one night. Auburn is an adorable town and staying at a best western we know exactly what we will get. We will stay there again.

    « Flawless attention to detail »

    The Best Western Golden Key, Auburn, CA is as close to perfect as you can get. Every detail you expect at a Best Western was delivered in what seemed like an effortless seamless manner. It is a lovely property accentuated by gardens you would expect at a much higher price point. The rooms are comfy, spotless and well appointed. I would normally include some interaction with the staff but because of their flawless attention to detail except to say that they were all friendly we didn't need to interact with any one after check in.

Ample amenities such as towels, pillows. Furnitures are well-maintained, no scratches visible. Housekeepers- met two housekeepers, very courteous and greetful, and always address very respectfully and with a big smile. Hallways and parking spaces very clean and well maintained. Breakfast, although it's continental, variety of food, fresh fruits, different kind of breads, different kind of juices, yogurts, fresh waffles, variety of sweets, were served and well-replenished at all time.

    « Nicely Updated Motor Inn »

    From the outside the Best Western Golden Key looks like a roadside motor in leftover from the 50s, and we weren't sure what our stay was going to be like. We were quickly re-assured. The gentlemen at the front desk (the owners perhaps) were friendly, welcoming and talkative. In a good way. The room was basic, but clearly recently renovated- nice fixtures in the bath, very clean, comfortable bedding and a great bed. The carpet was a little worn, clearly it has not been replaced yet, but it was clean. We were a little disappointed that the mini-fridge did not have a freezer, as we were travelling with a cooler chest and had hoped to re-freeze our ice packs. Pleasantly surprised that there was no noise in the room from the nearby highway. Very reasonably priced. Travelling with dogs, we are always pleased to find places that accept pets. Not only does Golden Key accept them, it welcomes them, with a dedicated grassy dog exercise area that provides disposal bags and cans to dispose of the bags in. Breakfast smelled good, and Awful Annie's next door is supposed to be great, but we had meal plans down the road for mid-morning so I can't personally vouch for either. If Auburn itself is your destination, be aware that this hotel is not all that close to downtown/Old Town.

    Our hotel was built in 1963 and was done in the style of the time. We added an additional 18 rooms in 1989. I am sorry to hear that style of architecture made you weary about our place but I am glad that you gave us a shot. We have a phenomenal Team that works hard to ensure all of our guests have a great stay. We are constantly renovating. As of today, we have completed a furniture refinishing project and have added granite to our nightstands and armoires. We are replacing our roofs next and then adding solar panels. Our mini fridges do not have freezers but we allow guests to leave their frozen items in our freezer in our Kitchen. I am happy to hear that you and your doggie had a great stay.

    The gardens, which roamed throughout the grounds, surrounding every building, were thoughtfully planned and carefully nurtured. In short, a magnificent feature of this hotel.

We would come back here in a moment and will recommend it to anyone.

    « Short Stay »

    My husband and I stayed for just one night between two rafting trips. I was disappointed they would not allow me to check in a bit early given I was not rafting and was hoping to relax in the room. They did offer to call when the room was ready, but I received a call just a few minutes before the 3:00 check in time and had already returned to the campsite to pick up our rafting group. The room was clean and served our needs for this short trip. We were disappointed with the breakfast as it does not seem to be up to the standard of other Best Westerns at which we have stayed. Again, for a one night stay, this hotel worked fine. If we had a longer trip planned, I may have looked for a nicer place to stay.

    Stayed here on the last leg of a road trip to and from Denver. My room was recently updated (except the tub shower, which is fine). Wifi access was fast and easy. My favorite part of my stay was swimming in the delighful, refreshing pool. The hotel is right by I-80, but I didn't hear traffic noise in my room, and it was easy to ignore by the pool.

    I love the folks who run this hotel. I have stayed at this property for two extended stays under stressful circumstances and both times the staff could not have been kinder, more helpful or accommodating. Hearts of gold, truly. The rooms are clean and relatively large and comfortable. They may not be the fanciest, but they are a great value and much better than others in this price range. Always sleep comfortably here and breakfast is pretty good - ex, waffles and yogurt. I understand some rooms towards the back of the property may get freeway noise, but I have always stayed in ground floor rooms at the front of the property and am not bothered by noise.

    This is a clean hotel with nice staff. The beds are comfy and quite. The shower has VERY little water pressure both in the sink and the shower! The TV has very limited stations and the mini fridge is very mini with no freezer. Another flaw is, in order for the AC to stay running you have to keep a room key slotted into a special switch. Not very convenient in the California heat!

    I am happy that you found our property to be clean, our Team to be friendly and our beds to be comfortable. I apologize that the channel offerings, mini fridge, water pressure and HVAC system did not meet your standards. We do not offer premium T.V. channels or pay-per-view. Our mini fridge is a standard mini fridge and does not have a freezer. We are happy to put freezer items in the freezer down in our Kitchen. I apologize for the inconvenience these things have caused you. I am sorry to hear that you are unhappy about the water pressure. We use low flow shower heads and aerators on sink faucets to do our share to save water during the drought. I am sorry that you found our HVAC system to be inconvenient. We have a system called Green Star installed in all of our guest rooms. This system saves energy by maintaining a consistent temperature while our guests are not in their rooms. When a guest enters the room, they simply put their key in the light switch next to the door and they are in control of the thermostat again. This system is crucial for guest comfort and is especially useful when outside temperatures are inclement.

    Our stay started out on the wrong foot. We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times before so I was somewhat familiar with the layout. When I made the reservation I had asked to be placed in the certain section so that we could easily park our classic car and trailer where we could see it from our room. When we checked in they informed us that were to be in another section where parking a trailer would be difficult. I was not happy and the man who checked us in was not very apologetic or willing to make us feel more comfortable. It set the beginning of our stay on a very sour note. But everything ended to be ok when Cindy (I think she is the hotel manager) did her best to make our stay end on a happier note. Thank you Cindy!!

    The couple running the front desk at check-in where efficient and friendly. They were thorough in explaining how to operate the thermostat, location of the room, pool hours, etc. While the hotel provides a continental breakfast, we opted to dine at Awlful Annie's Restaurant next door. The restaurant gives a 15 percent discount to patrons staying at the Best Western Hotel. The room itself was clean, the beds & pillows were very comfortable, which our stay pleasurable. There is a built-in hair dryer, shampoo & conditioner and shower gel dispenser that is a lifesaver if you forget to pack yours or you just want to save on space by not bringing soap &toiletries and use theirs. There is an iron/ironing board that came in handy. Noise level, pretty much quiet and the hotel was full the night we stayed there. Although, something odd occurred just before we fell asleep at 11:40 pm, we heard a knock on our window. After laying still somewhat fearful waiting for what would happen next, there was no other sound. We Crept carefully to the window and peered through the drapes to see a terrarium with sand, shells & candle but no plants in it, had been placed outside the window on the protruding air conditioner. It was not there when we checked into the room and no other rooms had a terrarium outside their rooms. However, that is not the hotel's fault; just a bizarre incident that cannot be explained, a prank, mistaken room intended asa gift for someone else, someone drunk or tire unable to carry plant to their room? It was still sitting outside during our check-out

    Seems all the best westerns are the same. There is consistancy, which is nice. Our room was clean and comfortable, lots of room. every thing worked great. They have a nice pool and hot tub. It is close to some great restaurants that are in walking distance. It is close to Hwy 80 so there aren't any spectacular views of the mountains around here. Its close to Gold country actives. The customer service was great, very friendlily.

    This is a very nice hotel. Very friendly staff, grounds and rooms very well kept and an excellent breakfast bar. The only area that needed attention was the carpet. It appeared well used and needed to be replaced I would recommend this hotel anyone who is picky about where they stay.

    Having done the same trip a couple of years ago and our last motel left us feeling we needed to be disinfected, this was a welcome relief. First I noticed the gardens around the motel were well tended, and pretty and as another reviewer said beautiful roses. We had booked a very reasonable price over the web and found the room good, clean and comfortable . nice toiletries, energy saving, easy to use features on their aircon/heater controls, easy access wifi and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. Free breakfast was, well presented with a range of choices. Located outskirts of Auburn off the freeway it was ideal for us traveling and spending a couple of days inthe area.

    « Cindy, Jennifer and Linda were great! »

    When packing to leave, my husband closed a dresser draw before I had finished emptying it and I did not realize it until I was waiting for my flight at the airport. A call to the reception desk resulted in the staff going to the room and retrieving the items several items, boxing them up and sending them to me priority mail. I received them a day and a half later. That's great service.

    « Easy, comfortable stay...and the roses -- just gorgeous!!! »

    Right off the highway, very convenient for our long road trip. We were traveling with our small dog, and got a room in the wing of the back of this hotel, so no highway noise at all. This hotel has a lovely "old school" or "retro" feel to the beautifully landscaped grounds, but the rooms are nicely updated, and there's nothing "old" about them. Our favorite part -- there are picnic tables (even BBQ's) out on the big, sweeping lawn near the pool and hot tub. We were so happy to eat dinner from our cooler, let our doggie enjoy being right there with us, and savor the twilight in a peaceful setting after our long day of driving. Later that night I walked our dog in the neighborhood and felt entirely safe. This one gets an easy five stars from us, as the perfect road-trip stay, and we hope to return.

    « Nice place on the way to Tahoe »

    We flew into Sacramento at night and wanted to get part of the drive to Tahoe out of the way, so we decided to stay in Auburn. This motel is very clean and rooms are very nice. My only complaint is that it is up against the highway and you can hear the noise. Not really an issue for me, but it is an issue for my husband so I end up having to hear about it. The breakfast was fine by free motel breakfast standards. The lady working the front desk (I wish I would have gotten her name) was super helpful when I was trying to use the Apple computer they have in the lobby, to print some lift ticket info. Apple and I don't mix and she was very patient with my extremely basic questions. Anyway, aside from the proximity to the highway, a very good place for an overnight and way cheaper than the Holiday Inn in Auburn.

    « Not worth $130 »

    Traveling with a pet, we just needed to sleep. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. Just don't feel it was worth the extra money for a small room with a lumpy bed. We could hear loud noises from the room above, and a gardener woke us at 7 am Saturday morning with a leaf blower (working at Burger King right next door.) We might as well have stayed at Motel 6 and saved some money.

    « Jennifer B, Front Office Manager at BEST WESTERN Golden Key, responded to this review »
    Our rates are competitive with our location and quality. We do have a pet fee of $20.00 for the extra cleaning that comes with having pets in our rooms. I apologize for the inconvenience of being woken up by someone with a leaf blower on our neighbor's property. Unfortunately, this is something that we can control. I went to inspect the mattress and did not find any lumps. We do have many layers on our mattresses (mattress cover, triple sheeting and duvet) it is possible that a layer got bunched up. We do have double pillow topped Serta mattresses as we found this style works for most of our guests. There are many different styles of mattresses as well as pillows and it is impossible to satisfy every guest every time as far as this is concerned. I am sorry that the mattress style did not work for you. I am sorry that we did not meet your overall standards.

    Category: "Medium Budget." We stayed two nights and used it as a base to tour Auburn (on a whim) and the gold museums in the region. We arrived late in the evening as "walk-ins," amidst a storm that was pummeling the region (it was said four inches of rain fell). The staff person was friendly and efficient, explaining the green energy system in each room. The facility was older but very well maintained and even in February the outside pool and hot tub were open. Burr! The landscaping was very nice. The bed was excellent and comfortable, medium firm. The one big draw back, which earned it the "3" star rating, was the ambient noise. The hotel is next to the freeway and the outside door had no weather/sound striping and the large gaps let in a lot of sound. I used my ear plugs and that was fine. The complementary breakfast was typical fast fare and well done with lots of options.

    « Only one complaint »

    I've stayed here twice. My most recent stay was in December 2015. I had a king room, which was nicely appointed. There was an upholstered chair with ottoman. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom and vanity area were spacious, and there was reliably hot water for the shower. My one complaint was the prominent smell of deodorizer in the room. It was a pet-friendly room, but I frequently travel with my dog so I know that heavy deodorizer is not always used in pet-friendly rooms, and this odor did not dissipate after being in the room for a while. I had the same experience when I stayed at this motel in 2014, so it was not an isolated experience. It is a nice motel, and a good value for the price, and I would probably stay here again, but I could not recommend it to someone sensitive to strong odors.

    Dear Paraflicks: I am happy to hear that you like our hotel and find us clean and comfortable. I am sorry that the room was strongly deodorized. We are utilizing new housekeeping procedures which are more environmently safe and do not have a strong, lasting chemical presence. Hopefully, next time you visit us, you will experience an improvement on this issue. Thank you for your feedback.

    « Couldn't be better and at such a good price »

    We like Best westerns in general because the are individually owned but that does give some range in quality. I give them 5 stars because every thing was just the best. Super clean, organized, breakfast was really good with hard boiled eggs and sausage instead of scrambled egg mix, Fresh fruit, yogurt, and a variety of juices and cereals too. The staff was ultra nice. We will definitely stay here again.

    This hotel was a very good value. The rooms were clean, and nice size flat screen TV. The staff were very friendly. The heater was very noisy and came on/off very often all night long, as it was cold and had been raining hard. The included breakfast was the usual high carb of mainly muffins, breads and waffles with weak coffee. There were no eggs, yogurt or fresh fruit. Apparently they serve yogurt but were out. But again, the price for the night was very inexpensive so it would be okay to get breakfast elsewhere. The nearby Joe Caribe Bistro restaurant was very good with fresh ingredients. I would stay here again.

    This was one of those unplanned trips and booked this hotel on the fly --- and surprisingly very happy with the result. The room was well maintained; must be just been renovated. Everything was clean and in good working order. Room even has microwave and a small fridge.The clerk was helpful even recommended a great restaurant for dinner. The quality of food for breakfast was good; a staff was constantly checking and replenishing food. I won't mind coming back if I'm in the area and in need of a decent place to stay at a competitive price.

    We couldn't have been more comfortable. My husband and I and our dog had adjoining rooms with my sister. The additional fee of $20 for our dog is fair and reasonable. We loved the parking right outside our door. The furnishings and mattress are new and the room was sparkling clean. The heat and air system is the best. State of the art system that works simply and immediately is fantastic. The room is a good size and includes a fridge, a desk with an office type chair and a big lounging chair. I love the fluffy, soft, and nice smelling towels. They even provide and area to walk the dog with dogie bags. We were treated very nice by their staff. We will be back on our next business trip.

    « Two stories, no elevator »

    This is an older Best Western property. We often stay at BW hotels because of the consistency of sleep comfort and the breakfasts are a big plus. This property is right off I-80 and we could hear the traffic very loudly through the bathroom window (it was closed, but single pane). We resolved this by closing the bathroom door (then it was very cold!), and leaving the AC/Heat fan "on" for the background noise. Our room was large and the bed was very comfortable. They had all the amenities needed in the room. Heat in the bathroom would have been nice (the "heat lamp" in the ceiling did not provide much). If you are looking for a choice selection of TV, this location is only "digital" and many of the channels "offered" were really not available. The breakfast was standard continental fare with waffles, pastries, fruits, yogurt and cereals. They offered hard-boiled eggs, and I missed the scrambled eggs and biscuits and gravy that a lot of other Best Western properties offer. This hotel is two stories and no elevators. If you find it difficult to get your luggage to the second floor, please make sure you ask for a first floor room. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

    I am sorry to hear that you were not satisfied by the number of T.V. channels provided. Without notice, our provider dropped about 20 channels overnight. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

It sounds like you were expecting the hot breakfast items that are served at Best Western Plus locations. I apologize for the confusion.

    « The rooms are good, but the people make the difference! »

    The rooms are good, but the people make the difference! We spent two nights at the Best Western Golden Key in September. The rooms are good just as they are at most Best Westerns. The beds were comfortable and the air-conditioning works fine (which was a good thing since it was almost 100°). What really set this hotel apart was the great service. My wife and I were waiting outside for our ride and one of the employees came out from the office with glasses of water for both of us. He also offered us a warm baked cookie. Both my wife and I looked at each other in shock as we were not even aware that they could see us from inside. It is little things like this that really set apart the good hotels from the mediocre ones. As a matter fact, I am currently at another Best Western and the difference in service is startling. More on that in my next review.

    Several members of my family stayed here for a couple of nights for a family wedding in the area. The rooms are very average, kind of drab to be honest. The bed was comfortable. It was fairly quiet in spite of the motel being full. But try and get an upstairs room if you can. Pluses are the better than average breakfast offerings and the shaded seating in the pool area. We spent a lot of time between wedding activities just sitting around the pool and catching up. One negative - there were way too many places to sign on the check-in form. The front desk clerk highlighted at least 6 places that required initials or signature. It had me laughing, but still annoyed. As an event manager, I've stayed at hundreds of hotels around the country - and this little motel in Auburn had more things to sign than any place I've ever stayed at in the last 10 years! It was to the point where I thought they'd be asking for fingerprints. I imagine the process can cause some delays when there are several people waiting to check in. Not a good idea to start a guests stay with a negative experience.
