Experience the Best of Auburn, California and bring the whole family for a getaway filled with river rafting, snow skiing and the great outdoors.

There are more sporting endurance events in this region than anywhere else in the world making Auburn the Endurance Capital of the World.

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.

Endurance events and outdoor recreation are often why guests come to this Auburn hotel but the local car shows, motorcycle races and lure of the Gold Country are also tempting. The nearby gold discovery site has some people striking it rich - or at least, having a great family vacation.

Our Auburn hotel is also a home away from home for business travelers and the free expanded continental breakfast with make-your-own waffles, hard boiled eggs, fruit cups, yogurt, pastries, toast, bagels, muffins, hot and cold cereals, fresh fruit and 100 Arabica coffee helps give every guest a boost in the morning for that meeting, upcoming race or to continue on their own great adventure.

Whether youre staying at our Auburn hotel to compete in the Western States Endurance Run, Tevis Cup Equestrian Ride, Wine Trail Tasting or simply traveling on business or pleasure, you will enjoy the amenities at a competitive price.

Reserve your upcoming getaway at the Best Western Golden Key and get ready to be surrounded by the comfort of our pillow top beds, flat screen TVs, BBQs, large treed lawn and energy efficient climate controlled rooms. Enjoy your stay.
