“Loved Truckee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We stayed at this Hampton for one night. It is a large hotel with ski lodge styled public rooms. Basic Hampton guest room seemed a little dated but it was clean and comfortable, typical Hampton breakfast. It is close to Truckee (lots of fun places to eat and stroll) and main highways. Front desk personnel very helpful and friendly. I would recommend and stay again.

Hello Daetime,

We appreciate you review and of course that you stayed with us.

Yes, Truckee is great little town- or as some say "the coolest town in America" and yes it does cool off in the winter.

And we are glad you liked our hotel and found our staff friendly!

We look forward to your next visit.

This is a nice property, clean, good breakfast, no where near lake tahoe. We were attending a wedding and needed an early check in to dress and make the wedding on time (It was a 2 1/2 hour drive from our home). I requested an early check in online, but when I had not received any word on it, I called the day before. They could not find my reservation and told me to call back the next day to see if it was possible to check in early! I called just before we were to leave and a different woman was able to find my reservation AND said a room would be ready for me. Don't know what we would have done if they had said no... Other than that, had a nice stay.

Dear Vtown Girl-

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to review our hotel.

I am glad we were able to accomodate your request for an early check-in. For the most part hotels, including the Hampton, will gladly check you in if you arrive early. But, it's dependant upon the guests who stayed the night before and when they checkout. If someone does not checkout of the type of room you reserved our hands are tied.

I am glad oyour found our property to be nice, clean, and having a good breakfast.

Thank you, again.

The Truckee inn is well run, friendly staff, managers on site are helpfull. The breakfast is fine and saves the expense of going off the property and is a nice expention of the stay. Room was comfortable. The lobby breakfast room is actually an ok place to hang if your other half is still sleeping. Good stay.

Room Tip: Gound floor worked well for us. No real pool noise.

Dear David in Clio-

We have been able to attract and retain our management team for some time now. I am glad you found us/them helpful. I try to have some one more senior on site most of the time to ensure things go well and our guest needs are met.

Thanks for mentioning our lobby. Most guest find it warm and inviting and easy to "hang out" in.

We hope to see you again soon.

The Hotel was clean. Its easy to get to and is pretty centralize to many of the activities around Lake Tahoe (for Summer) and in the Mountains (for Winter). The staff is courtesy and helpful whenever you have any questions. The Breakfasts foods are hot (thank you for the Waffle Maker) and plentiful

If you don't want to shell out for the Ritz-Carlton or Hyatt at Northstar, then this is the next best thing. It has all the nice Hampton touches (free WiFi, breakfast, etc.) in a location that's near the water and mountains (for play) and downtown Truckee (for food, services). A previous reviewer said it had a "mountain lodge" feel to it, and that's accurate. You should be able to score this for $99-$199 depending on the season. I look forward to staying here again.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and especially in such a favorable light.

We are not cheap, and who would want to stay at a cheap hotel anyway? But without the fees, as you say for WiFi, Breakfast and parking we think we provide a good value. Thank you for pointing that out.

We look forward to your next stay in our "mountain lodge", see you then.

An excellent Hampton Inn - quiet wooded location, easy access, pleasant staff, clean and comfortable rooms. No surprises at all, would gladly return.

If you fly into Truckee, you can actually walk from your aircraft to the hotel - it's about a 15 minute walk, no taxi or rental car needed

Hello SoloTraveler-

Holiday Inn advertised many years ago, that "the best surprise is no surprise" which is always a good thing. I'm glad you found our rooms clean and comfortable with a pleasant staff, without any surprises.

However, I should note that the Truckee Airport is not a commercial airport. The closest commercial airport is in Reno, about 35 minutes away.

Thank you for the persuasive and concise review. We look forward to your next stay with us.
