This lodge is conveniently located near Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski area. The lodge isn’t really what I think of when I think of a lodge. It’s more like a 3 star hotel. The lodge does not have a restaurant or a bar but they do serve breakfast in the morning and the selection is pretty good, they had eggs and bacon along with yogurt, cereal, sweet rolls and bread. The rooms look like they have been recently renovated and they have incorporated some mountain character in the lamps and art work. The paint, furniture and carpet seem to be new and everything was clean. There is a small refrigerator and a microwave. The temperature in the room was great, it wasn’t too cold and it never got too hot. The pillows were too firm but the bed was comfortable. Our room overlooked the forest behind the lodge which was very pretty. The other side of the lodge seems to face the highway; I suggest requesting a room facing the forest away from the highway. The service was friendly and parking was easy. The lodge is also very close to downtown Truckee which is filled with places to eat. The BBQ place right down the road, Smokey’s is really good with a great selection.
