The beds were comfortable and breakfast was good - although some variety from eggs, potatoes, and sausage would have been nice since we stayed 4 nights and had the same options 3 of the 4 mornings. The room was very clean and seemed well maintained. The pool and spa were under construction until Sept 1 and we were not aware until we checked in. The walls, doors and floors/ceilings are also very thin. We heard footsteps over our heads that woke us up in the middle of the night and there were several very squeeky floorboards. We also heard every hallway conversation as people passed by. From our room we could also hear people going up and down the stairs to the second floor and the laundry getting done in the morning. The fan in the bathroom also only turned on when you walked around in the bathroom as it was hooked up to a sensor that had a hard time determining if you were in the room.
Some great features - very nice, extensive and tasty breakfast; comfortable bed, upgraded sheets (though they have pilled a bit); free internet; pet friendly Bathroom and some of the other decor makes the hotel seem like a budget motel.
Located close enough to the freeway and to down town Truckee Truckers and local drivers join to the breakfast which is a bit uncomfortable and akward
Quiet dark room easy to sleep in. Hot breakfast. Security access for all visitors. Functioning clean hot tub. Shower hot & cold water hooked up backwards. This fixture also did not turn off completely.
Located next to Truckee Bars and Restaurants. Close to Northstar & Squaw valley.
Really nice setup for a budget. Had a more cabin like feel. Very cool
Pleasant location, nice room, well presented & well maintained, helpful staff, great outdoor spa, great well presented breafasts Advertising - I was expecting a real fireplace in the room - not an LPG one.Not being able to make a cup of tea or coffee when you want one and very restricted/specified hours when you can make one or you have to ask for one. Kitchen/drinks closed 6pm
Booked last minute and paid a bit more than we had liked but we loved the place! The location is gorgeous and perfectly nestled between Truckee and Sugar Bowl resort. Waking up to run the 7 miles around the lake then taking the beautiful back road into Sugar Bowl to ski for the afternoon was an ideal day made possible by waking up at Donner Lake VIllage! Priced a little high.
was a little loud on Saturday night with the tough mudder bunch!!!!!!!!!!
The Iron Horse is still somewhat new, and it has all the amenities we were looking for in a ski resort location: Easy access to the Gondola, underground parking, ski lockers, high quality appliances and cookware, great beds, and fireplace. The Iron Horse blended well with the Village and all the restaurants, bars, and activities offered there. In fact, we did not have to drive anywhere the entire four days of our stay. The staff is pleasant and responsive, but the reception experience could have been more pro-active. I probably missed a few amenities because nobody went over all the Iron Horse has to offer. No big deal, because we really didn't want to get into an 'orientation,' but the concierge position could be put to better use.
Reservation manager did try to accommodate us with a balcony and perhaps cleaner carpeting. This hotel was nothing like I had hoped. Tiny, filthy carpet, 2000 feet from the pool. The room was twice as far as anticipated. It felt more like a fancy jail cell. I stayed 30 minutes on a 2 day prepaid reservation. No refunds, no fun. Don't stay here.
Friendly staff. Clean comfortable room. Free breakfast. Near I80 Free breakfast while free, is not that great. Room was clean, but not pristine. Parking lot is small.
The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff was friendly.
Very dog friendly, pleasant staff, accommodating Had the end room, next to the highway, so was a bit noisy.
Location. Clean. Friendly and costumers Breakfast was terrible.
Clean, basic room, microwave and small fridge in room. Staff is nice. Supermarket, McDonald's and other areas to eat.
Rooms were acceptable. MICE in the hot tub area shrugged off by staff as a common occurrence, shower heads broken.
The most Photoshop presentation I have ever seen. reserved 3 nights and checked out after one. if your are really on a budget and only need one night this may be your place.
Very nice service, good breakfast and it is really close to the lake! Nice hot tub! The room was not so clean, but still ok.
The hotel was good and clean. we enjoyed the stay very much.
Big screen tv, good view of the lake with easy access to the shore.
We loved the room. It was updated, spacious and had a corner gas fireplace. The continental breakfast was better than expected, and every employee we met was extremely nice and helpful.
Nice big room- partial view of the lake. Could hear a little noise from the adjoining rooms but not too much of a problem. Very clean.
Great place nice remodel job, beautiful views, great staff, great price, and good breakfast.
Very nice continental breakfast. Too close to the main road. Noisy starting at 6:00 am
We stayed two nights on the first floor by the pool. The room was very clean. Maid service was very good. The beds were firm and comfortable. If you like typical continental breakfasts (sweet rolls, waffles, a couple of cereal choices, juice, coffee, etc.), then this is convenient in the morning. But I'd recommend driving east a couple of miles to the Blue Onion or the Log Cabin Cafe for a more memorable breakfast if it is within your budget. Room had conveniences like mini-fridge, microwave, iron (ask for board), sink in both the bathroom and kitchen area, although there was no safe that I could find. Hotel is across the street from the beach. Did not notice any street noise in our room. The lady at the front desk was very pleasant
It was very clean Its a bit old.
The view of the lake! Very nice staff and clean/affordable rooms. The closeness to the street that caused some noise....but I slept very well regardless.
We stayed here at the last minute due to an incoming storm, the staff was friendly and helpful, the room was clean, and the beds were really comfortable. We didn't have a chance to check out the neighborhood, but it looks nice and is right by the lake shore.
Very Nice Owners, Great Views
The hotel is perfectly located right on the water, with a beautiful and enticing private beach. The room where we stayed afforded the most delicious view and as we were on the top floor we had the luxury of tall ceilings. We found the staff very friendly and helpful, and we would have liked to stay longer. We will be back! The décor in the lobby and breakfast area could use an update.
The location was perfect and the room very comfortable We were there to ski 1 day and have the timing all planned out. At first we were disappointed that the free breakfast didn't start until 8, but then we figured we would change things around a bit and we could still eat before we got to the ski resort by 9:00 am. It was an issue when it wasn't open at 8, even though I called the lobby the night before to confirm I had the time right. We waited until 8:15 and the office still wasn't open, and we didn't see any movement inside, so we let for the ski resort. Of course for me, it was no big deal, but my boyfriend (who needs to eat before any activity) was pissed and luckily I was able to keep it from being a big fight. Nothing worse on a get away than a pouty boyfriend lol.....
Lakefront property Every room has a view Clean Family-run Need some updating in hot tub area; Walls are thin; Outside night lamps are too bright
The staff is awesome. Great place, great people.
Friendly staff, central location with lake views
While clean, the place needs a complete remodel. appears to be hanging on to the '70s. I would not recommend it to family members. Sorry Steps to room are too steep (ada issue) Rooms are old. The whole driveway needs regrading and paving. Office was closed when we left at 9am. there was an envelope with key taped to door indicating the office was closede since early previous evening.
The staff, quiet environment, private beach and accomendating staff. Older hotel that could use upgrades: new carpeting, DVD player on TV's, ceiling fans, and working drapes for privacy.
The location and the view on the lake, not to forget the very friendly owner.
Lakeside with view of Tahoe Lake from the balcony and the front room. Fantastic hostess/owner who also teaches (and rents) paddle boarding and wind surfing. Within walking distance of lakeside dining. Close to Incline and small casino. Full kitchenette makes it perfect for week long stays and extra pull down bed makes suite big enough for family trips. View on a moonlit night make the balcony alone perfect for the romantic getaway for my girlfriend's birthday. Can't say enough. Would go back for the view, location and the friendly smiling owner, even in inclement weather. Could use some upgrades of furniture, but this is small compared to the view.
