Thank you for the Gardens

Pros: The Beautiful flower gardens throughout the property set this Best Western Inn above others. The staff who maintain the breakfast were exceptional.
Cons: The sound barrier. The guests in the room above us arrived @ 11 pm; we heard loud moving about for half an hour. Remove carpeting in the sink area
Location: Auburn is a nice small town to visit. Also close to other historic mining towns/historic parks.
The helpful staff and the beautiful flower gardens made us feel welcome..

Very clean and well run place here in Auburn...

The hotel was clean and the grounds were very well kept, I could tell they do a good job of cleaning and the furnishing and details were up to par. I read the other reviews before heading here and glad that I did. Would agree with others that it is taken care of and the people were nice and helpful at the desk. If you can get a room in the back building it helps block some of the road noise as it is close to the highway as are most hotels in Auburn. I would stay here again and did a detailed bed bug exam and found even the nooks and crannys were cleaned well.

Friendly, helpful staff

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, easy fast check in
I found the Best Western Golden Key a great deal for the money. The free breakfast was much more than I expected, the room was clean and quiet. The only complaint I would have is the air conditioner was loud. The desk receptionist was friendly, helpful and proffessional. The morning desk clerk was helpful and friendly. I definitely felt I got my monies worth. I have paid a lot more for hotels with less.
