Spent several days enjoying this wonderful condo right on the lake with spectacular views and easy water access. The staff that we interacted with were super friendly. Great access to hikes and food options, with Tahoe Donner being only about 4-5 minutes away. Great place for kids to play or to rent various water crafts. Looking forward to going back there next year.

My family and I stayed at Donner Lake Village for a few days and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was excessively hot during our stay (hot front) and the lake front property was great. Do wish the rooms had A/C and better interior lighting, besides that you cannot beat the value!!

We didnt know what to expect as there are mixed reviews. We booked the studio deluxe and it was great. The big plus was that we were able to get a boat slip so it was nice to have the boat sitting there ready for us. However please note these are first come first serve and they don't have many available. Seems that owners had most of them filled with their boats and in the 5 days we were there many of their boats were not even moved. Beach was also nice and quiet. Paul was great at front desk. There is also a good restaurant walking distance and a great ice cream place, Will definitely come back.

The view is breath taking. We had a lake view room. Service was excellent from everyone we came in contact with. Management was top notch! The room we stayed in was very nice except the kitchen could use a little update. This was important to us because we cooked our meals in. Excellent location for a lot of hiking trails. Very nice place and we would highly recommed it!

We needed help because the remote on the TV would not change the channels. Called the Front desk and lady who answered was totally unhelpful. She said we could come to front office and get new batteries but that was only thing she could do. She said she could have maintenance check it out the next day. New batteries did not correct the problem. She said that since the units are owned by off-site individuals it was their problem and she could do nothing more. When maintenance came next mid-day. the problem was easily corrected by repositioning a "wire" so that it was visible to the remote. Front desk people should know about this as I'm sure this is a very common problem. The lady on duty was curt and rude when she should have been trained about this common problem, Instead she said it was an owner problem and not hers. Left us with a very bad impression that obviously affected how we review this place.
