10/10 Exceptional

This property is super convenient to Donner Lake State Park. It’s very clean and has pride of ownership throughout. The breakfast was surprisingly great because it was listed as continental. The attendant was so sweet. They had lots of different options, many hot items. The room was quiet and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again!

Happy Hotel Goer’s
The hotel was clean and spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful. It is close proximity to a number of activities. Parking is a little tight in the parking lot if you have an oversized vehicle but otherwise I would definitely recommend and stay there again!
