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

This is an awesome setting and the accommodations are clean and welcoming. Our lodgette room was lovely and had everything that we could want, including coffee and coffeemaker! After all, we weren't going to be spending tons on time indoors! The staff was friendly and accommodating. I noticed that the housecleaning was using "green" products which I appreciate so much....

From beginning to end the staff at Donner Lake Village Resort are five star. I must have called these nice people half a million times with questions (my first trip with childrens eek!). During every phone call they were pleasant and helpful. I felt like they were happy we were coming to visit. I checked in with Rachel upon arrival.... More

We had a wonderful time. Our Lodgette came with a stove top which we didn't realize. That was a great surprise. Our mountain view was a disappointment. Our stay was a little piece of heaven. Unfortunately was too short of a stay.
