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 there are plenty of restaurants. The wooden deck is great and all the rooms are facing the lake so it is absolutely beautiful. You can open your curtains and have the view of the lake. They have patio furnitures that you can use as well. Like one person here already commented. There is not always a person at the front desk. When we arrived, there was a note of the door that the lodge manager is out and will be back at a certain time. She left a phone number so we called her and left a message. We couldn't check in so we went to the patio and relaxed. She showed up not too long so it was no big deal. She was actually very pleasant. Also, there is no daily housekeeping. We met a family staying at the lodge's Town House who were so nice to give us a tour of their rooms. We would definitely come back with our friends and book the Town House. It's a great unit is you have small kids or want to share with some friends who wouldn't mind sleeping in the bunk beds.
