    The staff at the Golden Key has been exceptional every time we have stayed there. We visit relatives in the Auburn area 2-3 times each year and the Golden Key is always our choice for comfort and value.

    I traveled to Auburn for work. I stayed two nights. This hotel was great. Quiet, even though it was nearly sold out. Easy access to freeway and conveniently located near places to eat.The staff was courteous and helpful. Great value for the price!

    The Best Western Golden Key is an excellent hotel to stay at in Auburn before setting out to explore the scenery of the nearby beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains. The accommodation and breakfast service was fully acceptable.
