“Comfy hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We stayed one night during Ironman Lake Tahoe. Hotel was on the bike route for the race so perfect location to watch that portion of race. It was also very close to Squaw Valley. Rooms very very comfortable. Great breakfast assortment in the morning. Would definitely like to go back during ski season!

Dear Tripadvisor Reviewer-

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

Sounds like you had fun during the Ironman competition. Truckee really embraced the race and we look forward to its continued success.

As importantly, we appreciate your comments about our "very, very comfortable" rooms and the "great breakfast assortment"

We will see you again when the snow flies!

Loved the location would love to come back in the snow! Lake Tahoe just down the road about 10 minutes a nice scenic route. Right of interstate 80 about 30 mins from Reno! Bed was super comfortable! Loved how the breakfast had green onions sprinkled on top great flavor!

Dear Lorena-

We would love for you to come back for the snow, too! We sell discounted ticket to Squaw, Northstar and Sugar Bowl.

Having a comfortable bed makes or breaks a hotel. We're glad you liked ours.

Thank you for staying with us and thank you for the great review.

Great hotel with a very friendly staff!!!! One of the better hotels I saw in the area. The only downside is the closest restaurant is .7 mile with no easy way to walk. I would certainly stay here again. The hotel is in great condition

Dear Advisor-

Thank you for your wonderful review and of course for staying with us.

You are correct, the closet restaurant is not really close. We do have a ToGo's on the same site, which will do in a pinch but is not a sit down restaurant. And I think you are correct that we have a very friendly staff.

Again, thank you.

The Hampton in Truckee has the best group of people working there. They take care of everything. They're all very personable and helpful. I have enjoyed my many stays here and will definitely return on vacations.

Having read other reviews I am wondering if I stayed in the same hotel! It is true that the location to adjacent ski and tourist facilities is good but this property is definitely not addressing those who come to the area on business trips. The check-in process was efficient but completely void of interaction between the desk person and the customer; no verification of Honors membership, no offer of water for Honors member, no explanation of breakfast hours.
The mattress in the room was perhaps the most lumpy I have ever experienced. As is true for the majority of Hampton properties cookies were available at the desk but in many cases those are gone by the time a 9pm check-in takes place. Here they were available and as soon as bitten into there was ample reason why the plate was till full. The cookies were old and when I checked out in the morning there still were cookies there.

The included breakfast was very late, way past opening hours and was hardly edible. The eggs were granular and tasteless and not much else was available other than cold cereal.

From my experience here I would suggest driving another 35 miles and stay at a Hampton in Reno.

Dear Ram-

I am sorry to hear of your experience at our hotel, indeed it as you said is not typical of the guests which stay with us.

Our breakfast always has two hot items, sometimes three. We have oatmeal; cook to order waffles as well has granola, yogurt, cut and whole fruit. Our baked goods include whole wheat bread, muffins, pastries, bagels and English muffins. We buy our eggs from the same company as all other Hampton and add to the mix. Our breakfast hours, are the same as all Hamptons, 6AM to 10AM. I am sorry that we were late to open the day of your checkout.

I apologize that our staff didn’t do a great job at check-in. They should explained breakfast hours, as well as acknowledging you as a Silver HHonors member. Unfortunately, however Hilton doesn’t offer Silver Honor members water, only Diamond and Gold status. We bake our Otis Spunkmeyer cookies, the Hampton standard, daily. I am sorry you found them unsatisfactory.

Please give me a call I would like to apologize and invite you back to our hotel.

From the check in to departure the hotel experience was wonderful. We visited during a slow time and they automatically upgraded our room. The rooms were very nice, nice firm bed. Complimentary breakfast was very nice and included a couple of hot dishes. The staff was very nice. Can't wait to go back.

Hello Dave-

It's great to hear of your wonderful experience!

We try to keep the transaction aspect of hotel to a minimum, so checking and out is quick and efficient, one is renting a hotel room not buying a house.

Thank you for pointing out that you liked our rooms, breakfast and the staff was very nice. It will be passed on to the staff.

Again, thank you and we can't wait for you to come back as well.

Nice place that is close to Squaw Valley and Lake Tahoe. It made a nice base for our daytime hikes and dinners in Truckee. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They give a partially hot breakfast in that there are a limited number of hot items available and all of the ones in the hot tray are precooked from a food source company. It was disappointing to find even the crumbly scrambled eggs this way. They come from the Sioux Falls company Grand Prairie Foods. Perhaps the hot oatmeal was cooked on site. There are also cold cereals, muffins, bagels, self-serve waffles, bananas, apples, a not so fresh fruit mix, etc.
Mostly the room was quiet except that there was a heel walker above us at 4am every morning.
The only real complaint about the room is that, even my wife, found the shower/tub too narrow, especially with a vertical hand bar and a soap tray that are where the shower sprays down making it difficult to not get banged on the shoulder or knocked over. They could easily fix this by replacing the tubs with a wider one as there is room to do this.
There were no hand towels racks near the sink even though there was plenty of wall space for them.

We made use of the free business center room which was never occupied by others even on this Labor Day weekend. It has a desktop computer with internet and a laser printer.

The hot tub jets didn't work two nights in a row but they sent a service man promptly to get them on when asked to do so.

The property has a gas station and a convenience store.

Overall we had a relaxing time there and would return in the future.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a microwave and mini-fridge so look for this in the room description as the price...

Dear Bill C.

Thank for staying with and taking the time to write a review of our hotel, we're appreciative.

We're glad to hear that you found our hotel convenient and the staff to be very friendly and helpful. You will happy to know that all Hamptons are rolling out new breakfast items, including eggs, fruit and baked items. We will continue to have varied hot items and made in house oatmeal. We probably will not be replacing the tubs with wider ones,however, we are sorry to say.

We hope you see you again soon.
