With new ownership comes a new philosophy...
...taking the best historical motel in Auburn, California and creating the best hotel guest experience in the region. Whether you are staying for a few days in Auburn, or stopping for a luxurious break on the way to or from Tahoe, we want to provide the most relaxing stay possible. We've kept the 1959 motel charm and modernized with the best beds money can buy, completely rebuilt rooms, bathrooms and showers, and the fastest Wi-Fi possible. Creating an enjoyable retro-modern oasis. We welcome everyone who enjoys the good things in life with some 50's style.
We Have Bowling!
Enjoy 24 lanes of automatic scoring bowling, arcade games, a full bar with pool tables, and a diner. A retro classic that has been renovated to modern standards.
The Foothills is the fun place to stay! Check it out!

"Wow...what a hidden gem. The pictures online are just as the room looked like in person (pleasantly surprised, as many don’t). We were informed that this motel was just remodeled and we loved the retro theme."
