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.

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.
