This is a great hotel to stay at when you visit Auburn. Good value for the price. Rooms are clean and nicely decorated. Good breakfast. It is located across the interstate from the shopping area known as Tiger town and has a movie theater next door. Overall a nice retreat and I would recommend this hotel.

This is not the first time I have stayed at this property. It is currently undergoing a renovation and we were not told of the work.

The management of this property make extra effort to exceed the guests' expectations. The breakfast room becomes a lounge in the evenings. There was a manager's reception with wine, beer, and snacks on the evening I arrived. The hotel has obviously been recently renovated. Everything is clean and functioning.

1 night stay on a recent business trip. Hotel is up to par with IHG standards. Service at reception was good and was on my way to the room quickly. Room was well equipped. WIFI is free of charge and free breakfast is included. No remarks. Had a good stay. Hotel is located close to highway.

I'm really not sure how this hotel is getting rave reviews. It is very run down and not very clean. The lobby area seemed OK but our room was pretty awful (especially for $126/night). I'm glad we only stayed one night. The beds are horribly uncomfortable. Our bathroom was very old. The door in the bathroom had paint peeling off... More
