On the good side: housekeeping was good, bed comfortable, countertops and fridge were new. The bad: old stained carpet made me not want to take my socks off. Plaster cracked and walls scuffed, combined with old furniture and fixtures and uninviting living area made for an unpleasant stay- we left early to avoid spending another night here. Far overpriced for this shabby room.

Close to the water. Very nice beach and picnic area. Great staff.

We absolutely loved our little room! It had everything we needed to make our dinner and breakfast. We had so much fun on our little vacation.

We have stayed at this property in the past and really like the place. But for the last reservation, the room given to us was very small and different from the pictures. There was no space to keep our suitcases or hang any jackets. On top of that nothing could be seen outside the windows. Beds were very uncomfortable with no side table to keep things. Very disappointed with the room allocation for the price we paid.

The price+location combination is perfect here. The lake view is super nice. Squaw, Sugar Bowl and Boreal are close by. Northstar isn't too far. The lock/key system is pretty neat. WiFi works well. The sauna room and the waxing room are very cool to have and easy to use. The staff is super nice. The only not-so-great thing I experienced was the thermostat in my room. I could only turn the heater on or off. The chosen temperature didn't seem to have any meaning. Luckily it was warm enough outside that I could leave the heater off during my sleep after I warmed the room.

Loved the location. Steps away from the lake. 2 bedrooms unit was spacious and comfy. Master bed upstairs and 2 twin beds downstairs. The sofa bed was comfortable. Needs a little cleaning. The wall needs some touch up from small stains and the blanket had permanent stains. Need to replace blanket. Overall the unit was clean with the look of a cabin but comfort of a hotel.

It was right next to lake, view was beautiful! Kitchenette was very handy to have.

Great experience overall. Will try to take same hotel in future as well.

This is a very good place. However, when I got there, the phone for late check-in didn't work and my cellphone didn't have reception so there was no way to contact anyone. Luckily, the motel nearby had a room so I didn't have to sleep in the car. They did refund me for the night I didn't stay with them, so that was nice, but it would have been nicer if the late check-in system worked. It was not a nice feeling not knowing where to stay at 1am.

Hidden gem and a great place and location for a summer or winter vacation.

Great location, staff was really nice. The condo's are a bit outdated and this particular room the thermostat didn't have a cover so setting the heat was interesting. It worked for our needs, and we enjoyed our stay, just seemed a lower value for the price.

Beautiful place to stay very clean staff very courteous Thank You I cant wait for my next stay there.

Wonderfully friendly staff! My partner and I rolled up a minute before the front office closed but the front desk staff still gave me a warm welcome and checked us in, even letting us know that they upgraded our room at no extra charge! Our studio was lovely and very comfortable, with a full kitchenette that even included pots, pans, and cutlery. The resort overlooks Donner Lake and is a couple freeway exits away from the quaint Historic District of Truckee. I forgot my necklace in the room which luckily

We loved our stay at Donner Lake Village. The location was the best! Great staff too! Can't wait to go back.

Nice location, friendly check in, needs some extra bathroom cleaning, throw rugs need laundering.

Sorry to hear about your stay. We hope you were able to get in contact with the Front Desk. In those situations, we will always attempt to move rooms (depending on occupancy) to accommodate our guests. Our building and units are being upgraded but it sounds like you stayed in an older room. We would love to have you back. Feel free to call before so we can put notes in your reservation that you prefer an upgraded room. Again, our sincerest apologies. Thank you very much for your feedback and for taking the time to review us.
