We stayed here for 3 nights in 1-BR studio. It had a small kitchen with full set of utensils, fireplace, washer dryer. It had everything we could hope for with perfect location and great view out of the window. Place is very neat and clean, elegantly furnished and under 50 yds walk from Gondola, skating rink, etc... Village & skating rink area offer enough so you can go out and spend you evening either sitting by the fire or enjoying coffee or a drink, etc..
Place is good for skiing at all levels, but being a beginner we had a better skiing experience at Mt. Rose skiing.
There are good restaurants in village and Truckee downtown offers more options. We ate at Pianeta which was really good.
Good - Lodge & facilities, Under ground Parking, village, skating rink, great view, ski area, most importantly Starbucks :)
Things that could improve - late night food options, food at mid-mountain, skii lessons at ski school, more activities can be added to make evenings more interesting...
