Convenient for us.

Decent hotel. Hotel cleaning staff was noisy from about 6am playing music while they services rooms next door regardless of the "do not disturb" sign up.

Thank you Travelosity

Pros: I always like when a hotel includes breakfast. When you are traveling, it is hard to figure out restaurants for 3 meals a day.
Location: Go to the east end of Donner lake and there is a Beach Club.
When I looked at the Truckee Donner Lodge for the weekend I wanted, it was booked. Then I went on Travelosity and there WAS an available room and it WAS CHEAPER. I was so excited, I have told all my co-workers about it.

Decent hotel in Truckee

Pros: location
Cons: Staff could use more training
Location: near skiing and Donner Lake
Had good and bad experience with hotel staff. First person I dealt with regarding rescheduling was very friendly and helpful. Second person dealt with regarding TV not working was very surly and was "not an electrician". Finally gave us another room. Otherwise the hotel was fine for a quick Tahoe ski trip.

Good location

Pros: Location, staff was nice
Cons: better sound proofing
Location: Good location closes to golf hiking and highway
Close to hiking golf and town , close to highway 80 but not much road noise. Room was nice but typical to motel lodging, walls were a bit thin, some repeating mechanical noise in hall. Overall a good place for location and just a OK place for comfort.
