This is a Historic Hotel and as such they cannot change some things. There is no elevator and the toilets are down the hall. That is the way it was in 1900 BUT, the towels were threadbare and there was no way of regulating the steam heat that came from the boiler in the basement! Heat rises and the 3th... More

My sister and I booked a European double for two nights. Our room included a comfortable full bed, a sink, and a bathroom just down the hall (shared with other guests but we literally never saw anyone else use it). Definitely not flashy or with many frills, but we got what we paid for! The room was a little noisy... More

I say it isn't safe because of a few factors....no elevator, no one really monitoring the hotel and worst of all, GUESTS ARE LOCKED IN AFTER HOURS! When we stayed (unexpected and without options) it was expensive, my 82 year old mother had to walk up the stairs, the room, decor and furnishings were drab, old and smelled. We couldn't... More

This is such a cute little hotel. It used to be a Larkspur Landing and still has some of that style. The staff was extremely friendly, warm and accommodating. When we arrived they alerted us to the cute little winery next door and filled us in on other nearby restaurants, etc. After a fun trip to the winery, we brought... More

I had 3 nights here so that I could explore the Donner Pass region of Northern California. Truckee is a great little town, great food & plenty of bars in a very clean town. The Truckee Hotel, despite it's age, still has plenty of character and charm. No air conditioning, but Truckee doesn't stay hot after sunset, unlike southern California.... More

Spent a night in the Truckee hotel and experienced hotel life from the time before modern conveniences. No air conditioning just an open window, train crossing within 50 yards so train noise at various times including whistles and on the European plan showing and WC down the hall. No elevator so haul your luggage up the stairs and if you... More

Stayed here for two nights in early July while going from Lake Tahoe to Lassen National Park. The hotel is located right on the main street in town. If you like the idea of staying in a hotel with an updated old west feel and history to it this is it. The room was average size and was clean but... More

The Hotel itself is nice enough, very small room but very clean and very comfortable bed. However the noise level from outside was HORRIBLE!!! Our room was on the second floor with the windows opening up to the front of the hotel. The Grill and Bar across the street had a Bluegrass band playing until well after midnight, it was... More

I have stayed twice at the Truckee Hotel; both time was enjoyable. The hotel has history, charm and a great location. The front desk is always welcoming and helpful. For example, the first year the desk helped me successfully plan an excursion using the area bus system. The hotel offers a continental style breakfast in the morning. The rooms are... More

Room deathly hot. Screens on only 1 of 3 windows so bugs got in Hotel has 150 year old steam heat system. Heat was on so riser pipes were very hot and made the whole hotel sweltering. We could not sleep. It was like being in NYC in summer without AC. Even with windows open and fan going we could... More
