The friendly staff, super-fast free Wi-Fi in every room and the free nationwide calling ensures that guests have everything they need.

This Auburn hotel isnt just about great customer service and keeping guests connected, you can also enjoy the beautiful flower gardens and putting green or relax in our heated pool and spa.(Pool is heated from May - October). Bring "Sparky" because we have some rooms that are pet-friendly with a fee.
