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.

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.

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 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

Do any of the European bathrooms have clawfoot tubs?
I don't believe so. I used two of them and they were both showers only.

We did not take any pets nor did we see any during our stay. Your best bet is to call them.

"$th floor rooms had incredible views of town"
"Understand that this is a rustic hotel and you can hear the train from your room. The hotel provides earplugs"
"Rooms on 2nd floor, over the bar, will hear music. Rooms further away from stairs will be a little quieter."
"If you want quieter rooms, choose a spot on the backside of the hotel, or on the 3rd, or 4th floors. Note - NO elevators"
"Bring earplugs as the trains coming through at night blowing their whistles is very loud"
