This was a great hotel to stay at with super easy access to North Tahoe ski resorts. We wanted to try out several mountains instead of staying at one of the large resorts- it was a great choice to stay in Truckee. The hotel was clean, the front desk staff was VERY helpful accommodating. We happened to be staying over... More

Staff is very nice and professional. Hot tub does not work and pool is closed. Phone in our room did not work. Breakfast is a horrible joke. Eggs are hard. Sausage had no taste. Pancakes dry and also had no taste. Bananas were old and smushy. Milk was expired.

Loved our stay here. We were traveling with 3 kids over New Years and loved the convenience of a hot breakfast and coffee available all day. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We'll be back for sure!

I don't know how those people rated this place so high. Did they hire new front desk staff after they stayed here? Because we had an absolutely horrible experience with the front desk...and you know how first impressions last. If it weren't for the impeccable work of the maids, I would've rated this a 1. Here's what happened....this brunette lady... More

Fairly priced, pleasant, clean, spacious, well-appointed and maintained rooms, enjoyable hot and cold breakfast prepared by Ivan's mom and helpers. Delightful and accommodating staff with Liliana and Cate always there to help politely with a smile. And Sam makes Gus,Ginger and I always feel so welcome. We always look forward to returning to this caring hotel.

Very nice hotel with courteous helpful front desk personnel. Walking distance less than one block to several great eating places with variety of menus. Cool night temperatures and pleasant daytime temps. A reasonably priced stay with a quiet room and better than average breakfast.

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
