My husband and I spent one night here during a long stay in Truckee with our extended families and it was lovely. We chose it on location alone, and while some of the previous reviews gave me pause after I made the reservation, we loved it! There is nothing "hostel-like" about it. The room is adorable, the bed super comfortable,...

We wondered a bit when we drove up but from the moment we entered, we were charmed. This is a historic hotel and thus has all the character and ambience that makes you immediately comfortable and wanting to move in for an extended stay. Our spacious room had an oldish 4-poster bed, really comfortable, and a claw-foot tub. Some paint...

I think this little hotel has been one of the most memorable places I have ever stayed in,and I really enjoyed my stay! There arm some comments in other reviews stating excessive train noise...yes trains do (very infrequently) go past but to be honest I quite liked hearing them rumbling past. I met one of the owners and he was...

This SHABBY hostel-like building needs a thorough cleaning... also large sections of wall plaster cracked and missing in bedroom. In addition, their "breakfast" offerings are, compared to any good B&B, very disappointing.

When making my travel reservations I noticed on their website cute pictures and describing a full breakfast only to be disapointed on both notes. Our inn was more like a hostel, the rooms were decorating with Walmart-ish decor. When I decided to have breakfast at 9 am, there were only breakfast food wrapping on the counter. I brought this to...

We came to Truckee by train. The inn is very convenient to the station. A big plas for us. The rooms are nice, very clean. The breakfast is modest but certainly enough for me. The hosts were pleasant and it was nice dining with the other guests in the AM. We were not bothered at all by train noise but...

We love this place. Wendy and her husband Matt are great. Location is excellent for us (stone's throw from charming downtown, quick drive to 3 good ski areas, etc.). The accommodations are nice but not perfect as you would expect for a B&B (torn shower curtain in our room, towels could be replaced/softer (maybe washed with vinegar), smaller room we...

Only stayed one night and had no sleep, we were checked in for 3 nights but left after 1 due to noise of trains continuing through the night. This is not just train noise but very loud horns going intermittently all through the night. Shame as the place is quite cute. Oldy worldly sort of charm in keeping with the...

Love the location, homey feel and friendliness. Across the street from Jax Diner, featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and a few more steps away from downtown. However, you fall asleep to the sound of the peaceful river and are startled awake by the train. It is incredibly loud.

My husband and I stayed here for a ski weekend in January and enjoyed it so much that he came back for more, and we have two future stays booked. If you like friendly accommodations that are funky and unique, you will enjoy Truckee's River Street Inn. I am dieting, and it was easy to choose a healthy low fat...
