My friend and I had the unpleasant experience to stay at the Auburn Motel in Auburn WA. According to their web site it was completely renovated in 2008. New everything! What a joke. Nothing was new and the room smelled so bad I got nauseated. After complaining about the smell, we were told it was because they have to use bleach. That was not what we were smelling. The lady came and sprayed with air freshener we opened the windows to no avail. She finally gave us another room, but would not refund our money. The price was ridiculious for what we got. My suggestion is to save your money. A coat of paint (bad paint) does not a renovation make!
