Stayed here last year in September during a Tough Mudder weekend in Tahoe. The room we got is very small. The ceilings are low and walls are a bit thin. It was hard not to listen to a couple "doing their business" early one morning. The location is nice. It is within a few minutes drive to downtown Truckee where... More

Rooms are old and in need of updating as they are quite dark. The patio was nice except for the fact that there was a private party the day we were there and we felt like intruders. Walls are thin and in need of insulation. Kids in the room next to ours were being normal kids but we could hear... More

I can't say enough about this great lodge in Truckee. It may not look like much from the outside but it is a gem! When you open your front door you see Donner Lake spread out in front of you. Each room has a balcony or deck and there is a huge deck, hot tub, outdoor grill. It is close... More

This is a wonderful quaint little hotel right on Donner Lake. Each room opens up to the lake and there's a wonderful deck you walk out onto that is shared with other guests but there's plenty of room to feel on your own. The owners and manager are wonderful, accommodating people and will make sure your stay is very pleasant.

This small lodge on Donner Lake was just what we were looking for! The staff were very helpful-we needed to borrow a cooler and they found one for us. The room was compact but just right for two. The kitchenette had everything we needed. Our balcony overlooked Lake Donner. Enjoyed the hot tub - it was clean and fully functional.... More

A nice family owned place with old fashioned but updated rooms. Great views over Donner Lake and a nice hot tub.They have small but well equipped kitchenettes but the bathrooms are a bit small. Lots of old style wood panelling from a bygone, and much preferrable, era. Not cheap but still good value.
