Stay on campus – on your terms – at the Hotel at Auburn University. So close to the Ralph Brown Draughon Library that you can practically read books on the shelves, this hotel is the ultimate introduction to Auburn. Before you head up to your room, rub the nose of the bronze War Eagle in the lobby for good luck – especially on game day. Jazz things up with a drink at Piccolo, though if you’re trying to sport some Tiger stripes, do what the coeds do and go to SkyBar.

2. Courtyard by Marriott Auburn

Chain Hotel, Business Hotel

Business bringing you into Auburn? Let Courtyard Marriott act as your temporary home and office. The king suite keeps the living and sleeping areas separate so you’re not tempted to log in when you’re trying to sleep in. The work desk has a coffee station within reach, keeping your focus in the room. Auburn’s industrial park is close by – making it easy to grab Starbucks in the lobby then catch a cab to your meeting.

4. Quality Inn Auburn

No need to board your pup, bring them with you to Quality Inn without breaking the bank. This budget-friendly hotel is just as pet-friendly, giving you instant access to Chewacla State Park. Take the four-minute drive with Beethoven’s tongue waving in the wind and let a little slack into the leash. Let your pooch sniff their way around the trails to their heart’s content. Pro pup tip: keep a little sausage from Quality Inn’s free breakfast in your pocket so you can steer them to Chewacla Waterfall with ease.

5. Tru by Hilton Auburn

The modern creature comforts at Tru by Hilton do nothing to spoil the old Southern charm Auburn exudes. Light-filled king and queen rooms all have comfortable mattresses and rolling desks. Down in the lobby, semi-private work pods and around-the-clock free coffee are available if you’re hanging in the hotel during the workweek. No matter how much you love this hotel’s contemporary conveniences, be sure to take a step back in time for an old-school shake at the historic Toomer’s Drugs soda fountain.

6. Hampton Inn Auburn

Unless you’ve got an in on campus, one of the closest places to stay near Jordan-Hare Stadium – and Tuskegee Institute National Historic Site – is at Hampton Inn. An eight-minute drive straight down College Street, Hampton Inn’s your basecamp before and after your Tiger tailgate. Wake up with a free breakfast then head down to the stadium. Visiting during an away game? Skip the cab ride and walk across the street to The Tiger’s Tail Sports Bar for beer, burgers and new buddies who will root for the Tigers with you.

The free breakfast, fitness center and outdoor pool are mere warmups for the main event at this Auburn hotel – a private PGA-style tour of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Unpack your luggage and leave your clubs in the corner of your king suite, counting down the minutes until tee time. On the opposite side of the highway lies a grocery store – a perfect place to kill some time shopping for a post-round meal cooked up in your in-suite kitchen.
