It is a nice place close to everything I want to get to in Truckee and Sugar bowl ski resort. The only complaint I have is that THEIR WIFI IS TERRIBLE. The connection was very spotty and when you can connect it is extremely slow. They really need to upgrade the wifi in the building. It seems like they might just have one router for the whole building.

Clean, good location, quiet even though near the freeway

We are a family of four with 2 elementary age kids and had a great stay in August! I appreciate their reminder to wear masks, they have separated the check in area with plexiglass to the employees. I saw a lot of staff around wiping down common spaces, elevator, doors, etc. the room was comfortable and we liked the convenience of the fridge and microwave. Overall, a good time!

Was disappointed with the location(construction was our view) and the room's condition. No room cleaning available due to Covid, but the hotel we stayed at in Monterey offered us maid service. Curtain was broken as was the cabinet door to the refrigerator. Wish the lack of maid service and construction had been mentioned in hotel summary at booking.

It was a quiet area except for the construction going on right in front of the lodge. This place could be really nice, but it is very outdated. The employees are very pleasant and nice. We loved the 24-hour coffee and/or hot chocolate machine. We were also pleasantly surprised that the pool was open even with coronavirus. However, our hotel room walls were painted unfinished and could obviously tell it needs updating. The beds were great though and decent. We were very disappointed though that the second night we were there the power went out and there was no backup to keep the hotel running like elevators or air conditioning.

Location of hotel and coffee machine was great. Average hotel not fancy but my room was clean, and comfortable, had a great view out my window on 3rd floor, not noisy. Stayed 2 nights.

The property is a bit old and worn, but was clean. Room TV had problems with the sound the went in and out for some channels. Hotel was unable to fix the problem because lack of staff available to fix TVs

Location and breakfast were great. Some wear & tear on rooms, no conditioner only shampoo (hate that)! Overall good stay, met our needs.

Property is close to Sugar Bowl and downtown Truckee. There is also a hot tub. It looks nice from the outside but it needs some love.

Friendly employees, free internet, free parking and free excellent breakfast.

Good location, great breakfast, friendly staff, nice rooms, comfortable beds.

Good location, right next to interstate. Easy to get to Lake Tahoe and Reno NV. But Price is too high.

It was great experience overall. However rooms need a bit of noise isolation.

Close to Donner Lake, was able to get in the water less than 5 minutes from leaving the hotel. Pool and Hot tub were small, but nice and clean.
