I was on my way back from Reno to San Jose at night. Late, dark, cold and this hotel is very convenient to the Interstate exit, both arriving and departing. Quite old, but kept in reasonable repair and clean. Plenty of towels. Shower head was primitive, but hot water was fine. Numbered parking space in front of room is nice.... More

This motel was built in the 1950's and all the rooms are on one level. The rooms are clean and each has an assigned parking place. It is located near the bowling alley and several restaurants and directly across the freeway from a shopping center with a grocery store and laundromat. Each room has a microwave and refrigerator. Every room... More

I liked the rooms and the nice location next to the pool with a nice lawn. I was however concerned about the people hanging around. It seems the people operating the place have friends hanging around and they seem to party there. If there was a change with management I would definitely go back. And the phones were still not...

The service sucks! I stayed here because the best western across the street was full. Upon check in they handed me a remote. There was 3 people in my party I requested a room with 2 bed they charged me for 2 when we went to the room only one bed. That would be awkward. Went back to the office... More

My wife and I have been here several times in the last 20 years. Yes, it's old and yes the central heating is old and yes sometimes things are broken. But we like old funky motels and we like this place for the most part.......until now. Unfortunately our last experience was poor service and no phone service. My wife checked... More

After 2 hours at a nearby "chain" motel, I asked for and received a full refund because of the horrendous noises coming from other rooms in the "modern" but cheaply built structure. Here the staff was welcoming and admirably professional! For less money than I paid for the "nightmare" room, I got a spacious, immaculate, comfortable quiet room with a... More

My family members from all over the U.S. stayed here for our family reunion. It was an embarrassing reflection on Auburn. Although the rooms are clean and nice looking, my sister noticed that there was not a clock radio or towels. When she went to call the front desk, the phone didn't work! Yikes, I can see a thing or... More
