“Great location and deal.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

If you don't want to shell out for the Ritz-Carlton or Hyatt at Northstar, then this is the next best thing. It has all the nice Hampton touches (free WiFi, breakfast, etc.) in a location that's near the water and mountains (for play) and downtown Truckee (for food, services). A previous reviewer said it had a "mountain lodge" feel to it, and that's accurate. You should be able to score this for $99-$199 depending on the season. I look forward to staying here again.

David-

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and especially in such a favorable light.

We are not cheap, and who would want to stay at a cheap hotel anyway? But without the fees, as you say for WiFi, Breakfast and parking we think we provide a good value. Thank you for pointing that out.

We look forward to your next stay in our "mountain lodge", see you then.

room was very comfortable and met our family needs. Breakfast was good with fresh fruit to take away for later snacks. location was great for access to Lake Tahoe and various places to hike, plus to old town Truckee and various restaurants, etc.

Dear Cathy Paul,

Thank you for the very nice review.

At the Hampton we try to appeal to all. Business traveler as well families, especially on weekends find us, like you did, welcoming and comfortable. Our proximity to Old Town Truckee and Lake Tahoe make us convenient as well as quiet.

We appreciate you staying with us and writing such great review, again, thank you.

An excellent Hampton Inn - quiet wooded location, easy access, pleasant staff, clean and comfortable rooms. No surprises at all, would gladly return.

If you fly into Truckee, you can actually walk from your aircraft to the hotel - it's about a 15 minute walk, no taxi or rental car needed

Hello SoloTraveler-

Holiday Inn advertised many years ago, that "the best surprise is no surprise" which is always a good thing. I'm glad you found our rooms clean and comfortable with a pleasant staff, without any surprises.

However, I should note that the Truckee Airport is not a commercial airport. The closest commercial airport is in Reno, about 35 minutes away.

Thank you for the persuasive and concise review. We look forward to your next stay with us.

Love this Hampton Inn. Close to town. Stay here for 1 night taking kids to summer camp in Tahoe. Good size rooms, spacious bathroom, nice pool, excellent breakfast included and the place almost feels like a mountain lodge they style of the bldg.

Dear "Peebles"

Thank you for your wonderful review of our hotel. We appreciate the fact that you enjoyed our breakfast as we try to provide something for everyone.

When we built the hotel, we knew it had to reflect the High Sierra/Tahoe ambiance - thank you for noticing.

"The perfect Truckee hotel" I can't say it any better.

Nice staff, clean rooms and perfect. We stayed 3 nights and had our architect there for one night. Last trip we stayed at the Ritz to be disappointed. This porperty is fine and clean and safe and breakfast quite good and varied.

Have stayed here several times in transit to the Bay Area. Hotel is set in a wooded complex w/a gas station & convenience store adjacent. The last two times we have had a quiet, King room on the 1st floor in the front. Spacious room w/desk, free wireless & office chair, frig,, coffee maker, very large bathroom granite vanity (~4 1/2') & tub/shower. Sitting area had a comfortable arm chair & ottoman plus a lamp for reading. Good lighting throughout. Very comfortable, firm bed.

Cons: Bathroom & front doors open into each other. Furnishings are beginning to look a bit worn & dated. No heat lamp in bathroom.

Excellent front desk service, assisting w/ Hilton Honors sign-up --- something which was too much of a hassle in the past.

Good, full buffet breakfast in an open lodge-like room w/high ceilings was included in room price.

Dear PF Coach-

Thank you for staying with us, again. And thank you for the honest, fair and favorable review.

Nothing in the way of advertising can compare to a happy return guest. We appreciate the very kind words. You are right that some of my bathroom doors are problematic. But we are starting to upgrade or refurbish our case goods and furniture.

Of course it's great to hear our front desk team served you well and you liked the breakfast.

Your business and review are appreciated.

Stayed one night with the family, nice place but beds were very soft for me. Other than that good place and location for Northstar. Kids enjoyed the pool and the rooms. Clean and safe place to stay, would recommend.

Thanks for the recommendation.

I am so happy that your kids enjoyed the pool, but even more happy that you found the hotel "clean and safe." I stress the cleanliness to my staff probably more than they like. But our guests do like it.

We appreciate your business and nice review - thank you again.
