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 The condo's are a bit outdated and this particular room the thermostat didn't have a cover so setting the heat was interesting.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.

We were first to use this new studio as hotel guests. Great for family of 4. Close to skiing, stores, restaurants (by car) but quiet, lakeside setting.

Enjoyed the lack of other guests and quite. The rate I got from Orbitz they told me was a half off mistake. Would stay again for the same

Last minute booking for us since I'm usually good at doing it way earlier. Arrived to be pleasantly surprised to a free upgrade. Room was very nice, cute, and clean. Mornings on the dock was very relaxing. Wish we could had stayed longer!

We arrived early during a snowstorm. The girl at the front desk was not very accommodating. She suggested we go to Downtown Truckee until check in time. Why she didn't suggest or let us sit in the gathering area of the building out room was in was shocking. Most hotels would have at least gone a little out of their way to assist. The car we rented did not have snow tires or chains so we were a bit apprehensive about driving around..

Very positive experience. The hotel staff was very nice and provided good information. The lake was gorgeous so get a room with a view.

Our stay was okay. The room was clean but the bed was not particularly comfortable. The linens are old and worn.

This is not a fancy hotel, but has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We were in the laveview studio and had phenonminal views of the lake. The room and halls are very dated, but that was ok because it was nice to have the kitchenette, couch, dining table and plenty of room for a family of four, and views. On the minus side, there are no restaurants or stores nearby other than a tiny store across the parking lot that closes very early. We plan to go back.

Nice hotel close to the lake. Good to get lake view room. Room clean staff needs to be more trained as how to clean the room.

View is beautiful area was close to Boreal and Woodwoard Skate Park.
