Located in the heart of historic downtown Truckee, when you walk into the lobby you will find a caring and gracious staff that will go out of their way to make you feel welcome and at home. The warm earth tone and rich wood complements the fresh mountain air as you ease into your stay with us. Every morning from 7-10 a.m. a continental breakfast of rich brewed coffee and herbal teas, baked goods, fruit, oatmeal/cereals and juice can be enjoyed in a warm setting while capturing the daily weather and news on a large flat screen TV. The Truckee Hotel is centrally located to many North Lake Tahoe ski areas such as Squaw Valley, site of the 1960's Winter Olympics, as well as Northstar, Sugar Bowl, Alpine Meadows, Tahoe Donner, Royal Gorge and more, including Tahoe's latest action packed Woodward at Tahoe. While staying at the Truckee Hotel you can access all of North Lake Tahoe's best amenities, shop in Downtown Truckee or dine in the many restaurants and bistros nearby.

Noisy and no service is not my idea of a hotel stay. There was constant noise in the room during dinning hours, then a live band, and then trains. It never stopped. It was self check in with a door code and no one to answer questions or address noise.

I stayed at the Truckee hotel for one night in June 2021. It is a clearly historic building that only seems to have been only minimally modified over the past 150 years. This means no air conditioning, but it's still a great experience to stay in a building from the 1800s. I stayed in what they call a "European" room - meaning the bathroom is in the hall. (There is a sink in the room.) I expected this to be a shared bathroom, which would have been quite shocking for the price, but in fact it is a private bathroom that is not physically attached to the room. This worked very well. I didn't see this hotel available on booking websites, I was only able to reserve on their website. While no deal, the price was comparable to other hotels in the area. I would have stayed at Redlight for significantly less, but they require a 2 night minimum stay on summer weekends.

My husband and I have stayed here several times when we just wanted to get away. We LOVE the charm of this old historic hotel, close to shopping and MANY amazing restaurants. This was our first stay during the 'new normal'. The hotel is taking extra measures to ensure the safety of their guests, and Jillian at the front desk bent over backwards to make our stay memorable. I have never experienced such awesome customer service! Be advised that lately, Truckee has a higher than normal influx of people dining out. Service was all outside, and we were OK for lunch, but for dinner, all area restaurants require reservations (which can be several days out). My advice is to plan ahead and make reservations, or get take out and eat in your room, or eat a BIG lunch.

Right on the center street of Truckee, both close to all the restaurants and the ski slopes in Squaw and Northstar. Charming hotel with an old history, not the biggest or most comfortable beds but it didn't matter as I was exhausted from skiing. Once a discovered the earplugs on the reception counter, the passing train did not bother me either. Sharing bathrooms just added to the old western stage coach experience. Fun hotel, very helpful staff.

My wife and I stayed there in August and had a really nice stay. We rented a room with a bathroom and it was very comfy and clean. There is a great deck on the second floor that is open to guests and a nice parlor you can hang out in. We had a fan in the room which was awesome because we sleep with a fan on at home and it was slightly warm. The location was ideal and the bar & restaurant were fantastic. Gillian the manager was so kind and accommodating, she helped us with some great recommendations and went above and beyond to make our stay cozy. She was the best! I wish I was back in Truckee right now! Note: This hotel is not for everyone, it you like cookie-cutter/corporate budget hotels than you might want to book something somewhere else.

A great old (late 1800’s) hotel that has kept the flavor of the era. The staff/owners couldn’t have been nicer. Have a bathroom in your room or a room with one down the hall- your choice. Wouldn’t matter if you were there in winter or summer, yiu’ll Be comfortable either way.

We had 5 nights booked in South Lake Tahoe at the Marriott Grande Residences, and by the third day had had enough of the Heavenly scene. We decided we wanted to ski at North Star for the day. We packed an overnight bag and headed to Truckee. While on our lunch break we called the Truckee Hotel and got one of their last rooms for the night (we tried the Ritz Carlton but queen rooms were going for $1,499 so….) We are SO glad we did! When we checked in we were greeted by a friendly man at the front desk with a Golden Retriever puppy, and I got to hold his leash while my husband checked us in. This is an awesome historic hotel with tons of charm and character. We had a 4th floor room, European style with a double bed and sink in the room, and 2 shared bathrooms down the hall, both with toilets, one with a shower and one with a claw foot tub. Bed was comfortable and the room was super clean. I couldn’t wait to get into the clawfoot tub! There was never an issue of bathroom sharing, we never saw another person using them and the hotel was full. We didn’t have much issue with bar noise, but they do provide earplugs if needed. We had a great complimentary continental breakfast the next morning. Eat at Moody’s in the same building but make sure to get a reservation or you will have a long wait. The charming town of Truckee can be explored by foot. Staying here overnight was the highlight of our trip. We so enjoyed the historic value of this hotel . This is not a “luxury” hotel, but if you’re a REAL traveler and not a spoiled brat, you will appreciate it for all it’s worth, truly a gem. We are travel warriors and stay in quite a few upscale places, but this was by far one of our favorite places to stay ever. Hoping to return someday, thanks for a wonderful experience.

You need to know what you are booking with this hotel. If you are ready for a rustic and old hotel, this is it. If you want modern amenities, this is not it. We enjoyed staying here. It's a little noisy and you can hear the train passing. The hotel provides ear plugs at the reception desk. So that should be a hint. The hotel is rustic, amenities are appropriately dated, but the place was clean. The old fashioned heater keeps the room toasty, but arid. The hotel manager mentioned not to turn the heater completely off because the room will get too cold. The rooms don't have a frig or microwave. HINT: However, during sky season, you can place your drinks and snack on the snow outside your window. There is entertainment at night, a restaurant and bar located downstairs. The place was pretty crowded at night. You can also hear the music reverberate in your room at night.

We took the Amtrak Zepher to Truckee and stayed a couple nights at the Truckee Hotel, a block from the station. Staff was friendly and helpful, place was clean. We stayed in a European-style room, with the bath down the hall, which worked out fine. After a day of skiing, we took a hot bath in one of the claw-foot tubs. The second floor lounge offered a place to read, or catch a little TV. Continental breakfast was better than we expected.

A high quality alternative to some of the newer, more upscale (Re: Expensive) hotels in the Truckee area. Rustic, yes, but we opted for the optional bath and it was most comfortable for the two of us. Owner J.J. and his staff are committed to making each guests experience first rate and we will likely return. Continental breakfast was still first rate after sleeping in to almost 9. My 11 year old son also enjoyed the train crossing just out our window. Walking distance to many dining options including the 1882 Bar and Grill at the River Street Inn. Moody's restaurant downstairs in the Truckee Hotel seems to remain very popular after all these years. Next time we will give it another try.
