This hotel is ok for a short stay if you not stay a lot in the room. Facilities and rooms are old and need some renovation. Service ok and it was clean but could not charme up the room. No food or drinks available in the hotel. Store on the opposite is not open late. A24h supermarket and restaurants are... More

My family and I have stayed here on a few occasions. The two bedroom townhouse fits our family if 7 perfectly. The view is absolutely spectacular. The townhouse is very cozy and spacious. We love that the kitchen has absolutely everything you need. It even has a crockpot! Our kids love to play on the beach and play in the... More

I first saw this complex of buildings in October and was curious but in walking around the grounds I could find no one about, just a few cars in a large grouping of seemingly desolate buildings, a bit like wandering in a modern day de Chirico painting. But it is on Donner Lake, which I love, so I threw caution... More

Thank you for your beautiful summation of Donner Lake Village’s charms; incredible location, wonderful lake views and a dose of history. I am sorry your husband did not like the hallway rugs. The neutral colored patterns are design to handle hotel traffic but they don’t please everyone. And thank you for highlighting the lake view common areas at the end... More

I have never been thru the Donner Pass since I was 14. Then it was a winter wonderland. This time the fall color is beautiful and the view of the Donner lake and Donner Lake Village is awesome. In the distance I could see snow being made on the ski slopes of the Sugar Bowl. When I finally got down... More

We were only there one night but service was great, rooms were nice, with connecting doors so the three couples could get together after dinner to talk. We could walk to the lake in a few steps. We went in late October and it rained & SNOWED, but we loved it and were prepared for it.

Got there to find the rental office closed.. did not know it was a condo rental. Called the manager who came over right away, checked us in and offered us great info about the area and the facility which was unfortunately under construction. No loud noise, they seemed to keep that well contained. The room was decorated nicely, they are... More

Excellent customer service, I appreciated a run down of the facility, and the awareness of the lounge area, with a gas lit fireplace, overlooking the serenity of the lake. Our room was appointed nicely, and comfortable, with a partial view of the lake.

Nestled on Donner Lake with gorgeous views of mountains and lake..Property is very clean and well groomed..We enjoy the lower level (2 story) with seating and picnic table on our patio...There is a boat rental on the property and docks to tie up or just relax and maybe fish.

I LOVED staying here. Wish we could have stayed longer. The front desk person was nice, the accommodations was more than we expected. We stayed in a lakeside view lodgette. It was PERFECT! The room was decorated really cute, the beds were comfortable (even the pull out couch), the view was better than expected and I love the fact that... More

We stayed here recently and our room was probably not updated since the mid 80's. Everything was dark in color, the purple/navy polyester bedspread, the brown formica counter and cabinets, olive green stove and brown carpet. TV was super old and the faucet only worked if you turned it all the way on. Walls were thin enough that we could... More
