I booked this hotel 2 weeks before a ski trip to Northstar (15 minute drive). Unfortunately the price had gone up $40+ within a week by the time I booked. Location was isolated but right off the 80. Check in was quick. Lobby had 24 hour coffee machine that could make cappuccino, mocha, hot chocolate, etc. We had a 2 queen bed room, which was a little cramped and dated but the bed was pretty comfortable with a decent number of pillows that were not too soft. There was a microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker (that you could use your own coffee and filters if you wanted to). The TV was on the small side. The heater was very effective and we ended up using the fan instead, as it would get really hot overnight. The bathtub didn't drain very well which made the tub slippery, so definitely had to use the anti slip mat. We were next to the elevator, but most of the noise we heard was in the morning from upstairs through the ceiling, as the insulation may not be very good. The breakfast was surprisingly good; egg (with bits of ham and pepper, cheese) burrito and sausage egg biscuit sandwich that you can heat up, as well as yogurt, oatmeal, cereal, toast/muffin, and fruit. All in all it was a comfortable stay, although pricy given the appearance of the motel Pros: coffee drink options, microwave/fridge/coffee maker in room, breakfast Cons: dated room, slow draining tub, small TV

This isn’t something I usually do but it was two different rooms in the same hotel in 48 hours. I got there around 6 in the evening and just wanted to sleep in a warm bed. I got the room across from the ice machine and that’s understandable. It was a Saturday night. When I shut the bathroom door it clunked hard and wouldn’t actually latch properly. I notice the strike plate for the bathroom door was completely missing. I had to shove toilet paper in the gap just so it would stop because I run the fan at night. So it wouldn’t stop! Moved rooms the next night as it was a party outside my room and I wanted something more quiet. Someone kept talking about covid outside my door and I’m not sure why outside by the ice machine why there would be no social distancing anyways. Moved rooms to 3rd floor after trying to give me first room in hall where everyone walks in with nobody home in the place. This one had the strike plate for the bathroom in the wrong place so the bathroom door wouldn’t even shut. As I picked up the phone to notify the front desk I didn’t hear anything or a dial tone. I notice the phone wasn’t even connected to a working line. Upon further investigation I noticed there wasn’t even a working land line in the room to connect the phone too. I don’t care who or what you think about this post. THATS DANGEROUS! Guy with the red shovel who’s gonna be better then you in your imaginary game of lies.

We booked a room at Donner Lodge Hotel in Truckee Ca. As soon as we checked in we encounter with the fact that we ourselves had to pick up our own trash, go to the lobby if we needed more towels, NO CUSTOMER SERVICE at all for guest!! Once we arrived got to the room to sleep after a long day we were face with the spiders and plenty of mosquitoes inside our room along with the bathroom problems we had when showering! Poor plumbing 👎😖water puddle when we shower, water didn't drain fast enough. We went to the pool and poor lighting like a nightlight! We informed the maintenance guy about the insects on our room and ask if he had a spray to put in our room, he's response was " If you need spray to kill insects you need to buy it yourself and what do you expect,your in the woods!"👎👎👎 When I send an email to the Manager of the hotel Mr. Jon Borden he was a totally unprofessional, rude and unfair person. NEVER RECEIVED AN APOLOGY ANY SYMPATHY OR ANY FORM OF CARE FOR HIS GUEST FROM HIM OR STAFF BUT MAINLY FROM THE MANAGER!! Instead when I address the problems he told me that if I didn't like it to leave the hotel and that he WASN'T GONNA CHARGE ME but that I couldn't stay there for the remainder of my days that I had booked because he simply didn't like the fact that I complained! If I'm paying for my stay that I'm supposed to be happy and comfortable and in a clean room! He kicked us out, was rude and careless and also he didn't kept his word when he said just leave and I wont charge you. He did charge my account and I wasn't even there for 24hrs in the hotel!!! When i call and spoke to him again on why he charge me, he was rude and unprofessional and denied that he had told us that, when he literally told us to leave the premises cuz he was very upset that I complained. He didn't want to hear us even!!

This is a convenient place to stay for visiting the nearby ski resorts, like Boreal. They provide breakfast with your stay which is nice for family with kids. While rooms do not come with kitchen, they do provide in-room microwave. Front desk is very courteous and helpful.
