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

OK, the pricing was a bit odd and maybe a bit high, but it's Truckee, all overpriced. This 1909 hotel is really cool. Your room is just what they had back then, a bed and a sink in the corner, that's it, plus the old hot water radiator heater. You have to go down the hall to use the potty... More

I can't say enough about the staff. They were very nice, warm, personable, and knowledgeable. The lobby is OK, not very inviting. The stairs and floors are a disaster! The carpet in my room was coming up and dirty. Rickety furnishings and 20 in" flat screen TV. The most worrisome for me though was all the extension cords and the... More

We really enjoyed this unique place! Very affordable for us ($64 for two people although I understand it gets pricier during the high seasons). We shared a full sized bed in a tiny room with a shared bathroom down the hall. There was no TV (fabulous!) and every thing was nice and cozy, the bedding was great. We ate dinner... More

Should be called Hotel Suckee. No ice, no coffee, no place to sit, no elevator,no clock, no hot water,absolutely horrible! Sits right on railroad tracks. Stayed on 3rd floor. Finally got up for the day at 2am due to nonstop trains. When I got up the temp must have been 85 degrees! It has pics on the wall of the... More

Thanks for your feedback Lisa. We're very sorry our hotel didn't meet your expectations. It's true, we're a very old hotel, we're adjacent to a train track, and we have limited amenities such as an elevator or modern heating. Fortunately, the vast majority of our guests are empathetic to these issues and find their stay both comfortable and enjoyable. As... More

Truckee Hotel is overpriced for what it is. We paid around $150.00 for a queen sized American room in what was supposed to be a very old and historic hotel. We felt like we were staying in a hostel. The Hotel is located on the main street of historic Truckee. Situated between a gift shop and an eatery called "Moodys."... More

I love saving a few dollars to share a bathroom, but the hubs splurged to have his own facilities. Nice big bed - super comfy and very soft sheets. Staff was friendly and helpful, and it felt just a bit like we were back in the old west days. The claw foot tubs have been there for a hundred years,... More

Located in the heart of historic downtown Truckee, when you walk into the lobby you will find a caring and gracious staff that will go out of their way to make you feel welcome and at home. The warm earth tone and rich wood complements the fresh mountain air as you ease into your stay with us.
