The location is wonderful but it's worn down. Looks like it was built in the 60s and never done any work to it. We got the lake view sure you can see the lake from the balcony. The carpet is older I didn't take off my shoes. We tried to checkout a day early and they said no refunds. I...

Thank you for your feedback. Donner Lake Village's lake front location is certainly one of the attributes our guests enjoy. There are a variety of different views at the property, and I hope your choice was properly explained to you. We are in the process of replacing several elements of the unit interiors at the Property. Judging by the picture...

I brought my boys up for Mother's Day weekend. It was so quiet and peaceful. The hotel is right on the lake. It was beautiful. I wish it had a pool, hot tub and a lounge to hang out in and watch the beautiful views. The staff is incredibly kind and always willing to help. I absolutely loved them! The...

We are so happy you enjoyed your time at Donner Lake Village. It really is a beautiful property, and our staff take pride in providing excellent service. Our only wish is that you would have called us to take care of the noisy neighbors! We are always willing to speak with neighbors who are being unnecessarily loud. We hope you...

What a great experience. My husband and I planned a spontaneous get-away weekend and stayed at Donner Lake Village. Some of the reviews we read were somewhat unfavorable but they were WRONG! (I suppose some out-of-towners want extra-posh accommodations.)The property was perfectly lovely. The room was clean and very comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The view was wonderful...

This hotel is ok for a short stay if you not stay a lot in the room. Facilities and rooms are old and need some renovation. Service ok and it was clean but could not charme up the room. No food or drinks available in the hotel. Store on the opposite is not open late. A24h supermarket and restaurants are...

I first saw this complex of buildings in October and was curious but in walking around the grounds I could find no one about, just a few cars in a large grouping of seemingly desolate buildings, a bit like wandering in a modern day de Chirico painting. But it is on Donner Lake, which I love, so I threw caution...

Thank you for your beautiful summation of Donner Lake Village’s charms; incredible location, wonderful lake views and a dose of history. I am sorry your husband did not like the hallway rugs. The neutral colored patterns are design to handle hotel traffic but they don’t please everyone. And thank you for highlighting the lake view common areas at the end...

I have never been thru the Donner Pass since I was 14. Then it was a winter wonderland. This time the fall color is beautiful and the view of the Donner lake and Donner Lake Village is awesome. In the distance I could see snow being made on the ski slopes of the Sugar Bowl. When I finally got down...

We were only there one night but service was great, rooms were nice, with connecting doors so the three couples could get together after dinner to talk. We could walk to the lake in a few steps. We went in late October and it rained & SNOWED, but we loved it and were prepared for it.

Got there to find the rental office closed.. did not know it was a condo rental. Called the manager who came over right away, checked us in and offered us great info about the area and the facility which was unfortunately under construction. No loud noise, they seemed to keep that well contained. The room was decorated nicely, they are...

Excellent customer service, I appreciated a run down of the facility, and the awareness of the lounge area, with a gas lit fireplace, overlooking the serenity of the lake. Our room was appointed nicely, and comfortable, with a partial view of the lake.
