“Surprisingly Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I was a little worried when my husband booked this hotel, but it turned out to be just fine. Room was outdated, but clean and comfortable. It was a great value in the Truckee-Tahoe area. I would definitely stay there again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

By Tahoe standards, this hotel is inexpensive and a great deal. We stayed one night. Room was basic, clean, and comfortable. No compliants. The staff was very informative, friendly, and helpful. Breakfast was as expected; bagels, muffins, danishs, oatmeal packets, englsih muffins, juice, coffee, hot chocolate. We very much appreciated the complimentary breakfast. Considering this was a quick overnighter so we could be close to the slopes in the morning, it was exactly what I expected for the price I paid. We would stay again!

This is by far the dirtiest hotel I've ever stayed in. I was in town on business and needed a place to stay. While the location is convenient to the freeways and highways as well as the lake and food, it is in severe disrepair.

Walking into the hotel it smells old and musty. The windows walking up the stairwells are dirty on the outside and inside with dust and bugs on the ledges. The room "seemed" pretty clean but when taking off my shoes and walking to the bathroom, my feet were black- and that's not an exaggeration! The carpets hide dirt but are filthy. The bathroom was mildewey with peeled and cracking plaster. I've never stayed in such a dirty place and I've stayed in many budget hotels worldwide. I wasn't expecting a luxury room here, but I do expect cleanliness in a hotel no matter the price. I won't be staying here again and would NEVER recommend it to anyone else. We didn't even eat the continental breakfast because my thoughts were- if the room is so filthy what is the food going to be like? Thumbs down for this place!

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.
