Stayed here for 8 days in total but interspersed with trips away so we tried out a few rooms! In fact we had to change rooms due to a broken toilet flush but they couldn't have been nicer about it. All the staff were very friendly and helpful apart from one man from the housekeeping staff who was rude to... More

It is difficult to find Tahoe hotels under $100, so this one fits perfectly, and includes continental breakfast. Well located, just off of 89 and I-80, near the bike path, as well at public transportation. The rooms are very noisy, esp. above, so ask for 3rd floor if you are a light sleeper.

The room was clean and functional. The bathroom was spacious and clean. The complimentary breakfast had cereals, eggs, pancakes and breads/muffins. A good night’s sleep and fulfilling breakfast got us off to a good start. We appreciated the free coffee in the lobby during the day. The staff was very friendly and helpful!! We felt welcome every time we entered... More

This was an unplanned stay and a pleasant surprise. Relaxed resort atmosphere. I learned I booked the last room that night. I was going to stay an extra day, but they were booked solid, although they didn't seem rushed or crowded. Clean and well maintained and the old style decor seems totally appropriate here. Nice pool (smallish) and hot tub... More

Very nice and pleasant motel. We had a room with a small eating area which allowed for the kids to swim and then eat in the room (Pizza) from a near by vender. Overall a very good. Easy on and of Interstate. The grand kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub.

We come back to the Truckee Donner Lodge every Memorial Day Weekend to enjoy a comfortable place to stay while we produce an event just a mile down the road. It is so impressive to see the same friendly staff throughout the hotel each year. They truly know how to keep good people. The staff is accommodating, warm and extends... More

I don't really have any complaints about my stay at Truckee Donner Lodge. This hotel is located just outside of Truckee, and it feels a little bit isolated, though it's not much of a drive into Truckee. The front desk staff was friendly, the room clean and comfortable. There was a state park right next door. There was even a... More
