Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bobbybee Comfortable and welcoming experience.
This is the second time we have stayed at this particular location. Most Holiday Inns have been good experiences, however the Auburn location is above and beyond the average considering the overall experience and the facility being well above the norm. This most recent visit was chosen at a time when other nearby locations were easily available, however based based on the pleasant experience of a first time visit we opted to seek out this particular location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pmt1956 the place to stay when in Auburn CA
The staff is very helpful. Rooms quiet and clean. One of my favorite little cities. I have stayed in this hotel before and brought my very large dog. There was a wedding party staying on the same floor. There were many folks with open doors. My dog had to join the party and the guest all were quite friendly with my me and my dog. Even on my last stay I find most all of the guest very friendly. My dog is now trained and is an ADA dog.
This is a dog friendly place to stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mbhi Nice Accommodation but...
This was a nice hotel and I would stay here again. The person at the front desk when we arrived was friendly and check in was fast and thorough. Quick explanation of where to park, which door to use, how key worked, etc. all helpful. Room was large, nicely furnished, clean, and the bed was comfortable. Two slight remarks: (1) the whole hotel had a smell almost like tomato sauce was cooking. My husband thinks it was cleaning fluid or such. Not a bad smell, per se, just odd. (2) Near the elevator banks on both the second and first floors, they have china hutches/cabinets, as part of decoration. But, they were empty except for one little forlorn knickknack. Sort of looked like someone was moving out and put the cabinet there to retrieve later. Would make it much nicer to put some items in there and complete the look.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shirley1452 Nicely Decorated and spacious
We were so lucky to get an early check-in and pleasantly surprised with a very spacious newly decorated room. The location is great and made getting around easy. Enjoyed dinning at Max's for a great dinner and breakfast. We were here for a wedding and we were able to relax making our trip very enjoyable. Our room was very comfortable. Our only complaint was the toilet somewhat outdated and way too low!! I would highly recommend staying here and wish all hotels were this nice

We always stay here when we visit relatives. It is a great hotel. It is consistently clean (most important thing to me), they let us check in early this time, the pool was great, the restaurant was great. I highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pwizzy Another good stay at Holiday Inn
The Holiday inn at Auburn was a bit more expensive then other hotels which is a little frustrating. However, the stay was nice, the location is great.
I don't know if its because I'm a gold member, but it was nice to see free internet as an option although I didn't use it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whizzzy Comfortable bed and enough lighting.
Was very happy with lighting which tends to be dim in many hotels. Bed comfortable, room and bathroom very clean. Flat screen TV with many channel choices. Clean pool area. Was glad that there was a comfortable chair in the room in addition to desk chair and bed. My only comment is that I would rather have a complimentary breakfast rather than having to eat in the on-site restaurant.

I spent several days here while exploring the surrounding area and was pleased with the excellent staff support. After long hours in the mountains it was a pleasure to come back to a meal at restaurant. While all of the staff I came in contact with were outstanding, I would like to single out Scott at the front desk as the best staff member I have seen in all of the IHGs this year. If I ever come this way again, I will look forward to staying here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Old Goat Check in
We arrived about 1430. We were told that the room would be ready in about 15 min. We waited for 2 hours, checking with the front desk every 15 min. Several people checked in after us and got their rooms right away. Finally, my wife told them that if we don't get a room right away, cancel the reservation and we'll go some place else. They found a room and gave us $10 credit in the dinning room.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ardrem There are other choices... use them!
I reserved my room at one rate, received a different rate at check in, had another rate on my statement and was billed a different rate. Finally received my original rate, however, had to make 3 phone calls to get it. If that wasn't bad enough the hotel internet(that I rarely use-I have my own) was so slow it was useless, my room AC didn't work and the satellite tv remote was broken. Enough said.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nwimpy wasn't bad--could have been better
Our stay included 3 nights/4 days in a smaller-than-average room including two double beds. Please be aware if you prefer queen beds they are not available on this property, kings and doubles only and roll away beds are not available for king suites. Knowing that there was a need for less expensive accommodations, I booked in Auburn even though all of my business was in Grass Valley. This choice alone saved about $150 a night. I have stayed at the Holiday inn in Grass Valley, the accommodations are a bit higher end at that location, yet not enough to warrant the larger expense. The lay out of the hotel itself is confusing so get to know your ins and outs for ease of use. I found that during our stay the halls were hot and stifling, very uncomfortable while leaving or headed to the restaurant or pool. I am a very light sleeper and found the mattresses were uncomfortable, my husband didn't find them as bad as I did.
The staff tried their best to be helpful with wi-fi problems and check-in issues. A news paper was delivered early every morning and a complimentary bottle of water was waiting with a personalized "greetings" letter on the armoire. I found that these small personal touches were a nice added piece.
Overall we were please with our stay. I am one hard cookie to please and these guys hit a 6 our of 10 for me. If I have business here again, I might choose Holiday Inn Auburn for my accommodations.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Old_Gal Very comfortable night
Our room was immaculately clean and the beds and pillows were heavenly. The staff was friendly and helpful. We felt it was a "tad" pricey, but then again, we were there at the height of the summer tourist season, so maybe not.
The only downside was that our room was next to the (beautiful) courtyard and pool area, and some folks decided to get rowdy out there during the wee hours. We would definitely stay there again, but would ask for a room away from the pool area.
Overall, a very pleasant place to stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SW Senior Slow wi-fi
The Wi-Fi in our room was extremely SLOW! I had to go to the lobby whenever I wanted to use my i-pad. We stayed for four nights and feel we should have been assigned a room more convenient to the lobby, overlooking the pool not the parking lot. Also, there is no comfortable chair for reading. For the price, with no complimentary breakfast, we expected more.

What a great experience walking in and being greeted as soon as we walked in with a big welcome and smiling faces. Simple and easy check in with pleasant conversation during the process. We were on vacation and looking to relax and they gave us every opportunity to do just that.

Very happy that we chose Holiday Inn. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was easy to check in. Our room was spacious, the furniture and rug was new and visually pleasing. The bed was very comfortable with four pillows! Two that had the word "soft" sewn on the pillowcase and the other two "firm". Lots of room for both of us when sharing the bathroom vanity.

Stayed here during the Western States 100 mile Endurance Run. The staff was awesome! Nice, friendly, personable - very much appreciated since both me and my crew were very tired and probably a little cranky! THe manager Tammy was really nice as was the entire front desk team! Room were clean and quiet - never heard another person. Great central location and easy to get to from the freeway and other places around Auburn. Definitely check this place out the next time you're in Auburn!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TersSanDiego Great Hotel, Friendly Staff
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.

I've been here for 6 weeks, checking out on the weekends. The hotel was great. The cleaning staff is amazing. This place was busy all the time and the rooms were always top notch. All of the staff at the reservation desk were friendly and looking to help me whenever possible.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dude71 Overall experience
If you can look past the higher weekend room rate (we did), this hotel was a sound choice to stay for 2 nights. It has a great location with easy access to I80 for both East and West directions, close to Old Town Auburn and 24 miles south of Grass Valley, another fine old town to visit. Personal shopping at a department store or grocer is close at hand along with nearby eateries to indulge your hunger. We always stay at a Holiday Inn Express or Holiday Inn, whenever possible.....we've always been satisfied with either Holiday Inn properties and for us, that's the important part.
