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

Cute, historic, clean and very friendly staff . . . just very B&B and we weren't expecting that with the full room reservation. NO A/C - which was killer when we went, plus no screens on the windows which lead out to a fire escape walk away - leading us to not feel comfortable with the thought that someone could... More

Loved this place so much that we stayed two nights. The building was an old rooming house; rooms have been redone and are lovely. Clawfoot tubs a plus. Be sure to enjoy the large porch on the second floor. Nice complementary breakfast downstairs. Friendly staff. Loved the creaky staircase!
