A comfortable hotel with a frontier look and feel.
Posted Jul 23, 2012
To put my rating in perspective, I love staying in old historic hotels; this building is 101 years old, and has the feel of an old wild west hotel. I think there are 2 electric sockets in the entire room, led to by outboard conduits, just like in the good old days. So, it is not a posh 4-star, but it works well, the beds are clean and comfortable, and the bathrooms are just fine. And it is in a great location in downtown Truckee, with lots of restaurants and bars around. The staff is extremely friendly and responsive, too. You have to pay extra for your own bathroom; we are just fine with the community bathrooms. Oh, if you have problems with stairs, you might look elsewhere. But if you don't mind a little exercise, a room on the 4th floor is a workout, and the views are great from up there.
