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.
