The room was very clean and quiet, great location. The internet was fast, the desk was large. Breakfast was average for this type of property. I'll stay here again. The view from the window was over a forested area which added to the privacy and peacefulness.

For the price, this place was a fantastic bargain. It had everything one would want in a pleasant hotel stay: clean beds, views of the forest from the rooms, amazingly helpful staff, and a great complimentary breakfast. I rarely write reviews, but staying at Truckee-Donner Lodge was such a positive experience I felt others should know. Also, historic downtown Truckee...

Let me start out by saying I have spent about 25 nights at this hotel in the last few months (for work). The rooms are nice sized with a good sized desk with chair, and another comfortable chair. Also in the room was a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker (although there is always coffee in the lobby.) The bed was...

The title could be good or bad depending on the way you look at it? Stayed here on business and took the wife. A very minimal facility although it does have a small pool and jacuzzi. Staff seemed overworked, and there was no one at the front desk when we arrived.After about a fifteen minute wait the front desk girl...

The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Location, nothing around it except two gas stations and a taco bell. They are located at the base of a great hiking trail so that was great. They really talk about their hot continental breakfast but we found it inedible. Customer service was not bad, if you could find someone at...

Have stayed at this location many times, and always happy with the staff, price, location and breakfast. Surprisingly quiet for being so close to 80. My kids loved the pool, but it looked pretty dirty.

Good things...location, location, location. Complimentary breakfast and coffee in the lobby is always a plus. Quieter than expected and the beds were comfortable. Mini-fridge in the room is always nice too. Okay things...a little worn and dated. Meets basic expectations. A couple of frayed towels and never could figure out how to turn on the nightstand lamps, but overall, decent...
