My wife and I went to Empire Historic State Park and Marshall Historic State Park. The location between the two parks was great. The staff corrected a small problem and the room was nice. I would stay here again and recommend the hotel.

There are very few decent hotels in this part of Northern California. What a pleasant surprise this one was! It is reasonably priced, clean and has great staff. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms well appointed. It is right off of I-80 and is close to downtown Auburn. Restaurants are nearby. All in all, a very comfortable stay.

It was a last minute trip to Auburn. Called late that afternoon for evening arrival. Had a lovely room, quiet and easy access to where we needed to be the next day. Max's Restaurant is part of the hotel and we had a great dinner & breakfast there. Thank you for being so accommodating.
