Relaxing atmosphere, swimming pool, hot tub in Truckee

The Truckee Donner Lodge is just a few miles from Donner Lake and Squaw Valley USA, and is also close to Sugar Bowl and Northstar at Tahoe. Summer visitors will want to raft and fish on the Truckee River or schedule tee times on one of the many courses in the area.

Pleasant place

A quiet location with a great view of woods, water, trees & snow. The free breakfast was a lot more than I had anticipated. Also they varied the offerings from day-to-day. When eating in restaurants 3 times a day, it's wonderful to have a place where you can eat as you would at home (if you want), or have a lot more than you normally would.

My review of Holiday Inn Express TRUCKEE

when we tried to check in a little early we were told,absolutely not. In fact there was no point in coming back at 3:00 pm the regular check in time because they had given late check out privledge to everyone staying in that size room so she was not sure when we could get in. Her whole attitude was extremely rude.
