Great view
Great place with a great view. Unfortunately it did only have a portable fan and the room got really hot.

River Ranch summer stay
Stayed here for a wedding in Tahoe City area. Very fun atmosphere since this is the take out point for rafting on the Truckee River in June and July. Restaurant is very good but pricey. Room was clean and comfortable. Second floor Rooms with balconies are best. Road noise noticeable during day but not at night. Very friendly and attentive staff. Property a bit worn overall but has a wonderful location and is more inexpensive than many properties in an expensive region.
