I had 3 nights here so that I could explore the Donner Pass region of Northern California. Truckee is a great little town, great food & plenty of bars in a very clean town. The Truckee Hotel, despite it's age, still has plenty of character and charm. No air conditioning, but Truckee doesn't stay hot after sunset, unlike southern California. There is a grade crossing for the Union Pacific mainline right next to the hotel, so you'll hear plenty of train horns. As I am a railfan, this wasn't a problem, but if you're not a railfan, then it could be a problem. The room was small, but that was fine with me as I was a solo traveller and only spent 7-8 hours per day in the room. The only thing I'd change if I stayed here again would be upgrading from a European Room to an American Room as the European Room has a shared bathroom. Luckily I was there in a quiet time, or else it would be been annoying.
