“Good but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

We needed an inexpensive room for just one night and didn't need any costly extras like a pool and such. The Inn provided just that, a clean room that was in good shape where we could get some rest for an early fishing expedition in the morning. The breakfast was minamal but the wife was OK with it, I was not. The help was courteous, location good and all in all it was perfect for our needs especially the price which can be a problem in Truckee. Other reviews here seem negative about cleanliness but that was not our case, though it might be a room to room thing since our room, 108, was not that bad. I don't know if it means anything but we noticed a lot of highway workers (lots of highway maintenance going on on I-80 during the summer) stay here and the place fills up most nights.

This is a dirty place. Hair in the bathtub, carpets are wet, floor in bathroom is really slick and there is dirt everywhere. When you look at the tile in the bathroom and the tops are covered with about an inch of dirt it is time to steer clear of this place. We stayed here because they are pet friendly but this is not worth the money. If it were a 20.00 room it still would be to expensive for what you get.

Room Tip: keep going

The hotel is very old and dirty. We had hair all over our two beds and the towels were yellow. We left the same night.

We stayed there May 24th. The staff was nice and efficient. The room was clean but the hallway carpets were not. Breakfast is very basic. 20 or 30 years ago it may have been a destination but today it is at best a waystation.

The rooms are large but very basic, almost motel 6 like. The indoor spa and sana is a nice amenitie. The continental breakfast is ok, just bagels and muffins with coffee and juice. The thing that makes this hotel stand out is the super friendly staff. Willing to help you in any way! The price is reasonable for what you get.

My Family has been staying at the Inn at Truckee for the past 10 years. It is always clean and the staff is great! The hot tube is clean and it is nice to have the simple continental breakfast. Great value.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

Very average hotel, nothing special and kind of old. Room was clean and hotel was very quiet. Right off of Highway 80 and just a few miles from both of these ski resorts and Donner Lake. The continental breakfast was very basic, small muffins, juices, coffee, instant oatmeal, bagels. Plenty of TV stations to choose from. The hot tub was indoors, clean and the perfect temperature. Beds were comfortable. Historic down town Truckee is just about a mile away. Safeway and Starbucks are very close driving distance also.
