Great place to stay. Clean, comfortable, Great staff. Breakfast is The Best we have had since the pandemic and we have stayed in dozens of hotels. The hotel looks like a cute Lodge feel, itmis a little dated, but very nice. We do recommend this hotel.

Let me preface the review by saying it's the first time I've stayed in a hotel during (the end?!) of COVID-19 and the restrictions. We stayed 5 days and I think that since there is no cleaning of rooms during COVID it might've been easier to book 2 nights at a time so that we could get our garbage and towels changed. Having to clean your own room /change the garbage/pull a handcart to your room takes the 'vacation' out of your stay, but alas. As the hotel is designated "pet friendly" we considered bringing the dog but glad we didn't because dogs are not allowed in the rooms alone, nor are they allowed in any of the outdoor spaces like the pool, so really you have limitations there. On the up side, if you're not a dog owner there isn't a noticeable smell and I only heard a few barks coming from the 1st floor.

Pool-- opens at 10, but spa is closed, CA health code. A group of people were smoking cigars by the pool every night and smoking is not allowed, but when I told the front desk they said oh, yeah, they shouldn' t be doing that and did nothing. The staff is overall friendly and competent but it is limited to one person at the desk and one of them ordered a beer from a traveling vendor while on the clock!

Breakfast is included but it's nothing to really write home about. The hot food is from one of those airline distributors, and vegetarian stuff was not.

We arrived in the evening and the reception area was quite full of people who do the check-in, however, it was fast, so we did not have to wait very long.
We got a room on the second floor, it was spacious, neat and clean, with a comfy bed to sleep in.
Room has a single cup coffee maker with coffee condiments, a microwave and a refrigerator.
Bathroom is clean, with a complete towel set and basic toiletries.
They serve hot breakfast: crepes, cheese omelette, fresh waffle, sausage, bacon, scrambled egg, biscuit and gravy, bread and pastries, cereal, juices, tea and coffee etc, at a cozy breakfast area.
We had a pleasant stay.

In general, the room was very clean, well furnished and the staff was friendly. Provided breakfast was meh. All in all, a comfortable and predictable Best Western hotel. I would however strongly recommend a 2nd floor room that faces the side or back of the property to minimize noise issues outlined below. Location is ok with the Fiftyfifty brewing next door, but that is about it for walk-able restaurants.

I did find that the rooms were excessively noisy. Between plumbing noises, squeaky floors, and voices/TV from adjoining rooms, neither of my nights there were not restful, and I am not necessary a light sleeper. The person above me got up to use the bathroom multiple times during the night, and I could hear him/her walk across the squeaky floor and flush the toilet each and every time. Early morning showers (e.g. 4:30am) were also quite loud as were the late night voices/TV from adjoining rooms. Only other comment I would share is that the hot tub was only lukewarm.

One other note -- one of the nights I stayed it snowed and with a room that faced the street, you could hear the snowplows doing their thing during the night and early in the morning. This is what it is and out of the hotel's control. Not sure I will stay there again, but if so, i'll request a room not facing the street.

I came to Truckee for a short getaway and called and spoke to Atham who was very professional on the phone and was able to book a reservation for me. Atham provided amazing customer service from the moment i called to walking through the front entrance to check in. He was friendly and informative about the property and truly made me feel welcomed. the best western inn Truckee offers complimentary breakfast and coffee in the morning and have premium channels to watch movies on. i felt the property was clean and safe during the pandemic as well. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting the area.

This hotel is in a good location but I thought the price per quality was off. The carpets looked like they could use a good cleaning and the service from the front desk was "OK". The hotel was fairly highly priced, but the service I received for half the price in the several nights before from other hotels (we were on a road trip) was equal or better. That said, the breakfast was very good given the current state of affairs and the dining staff was friendly and that area was very clean.

We have stayed here a couple of times. For an older property they do a great job with service and cleanliness. Will stay here again. COVID procedures were great including good breakfast options in these times.

A lot of guests have dogs here so be aware of this and of the grassy areas.

I would recommend the sushi restaurant next door.

To management, please clean up after disrespectful other dog owners better.

I have been coming to this hotel for 4 years now with multiple winter stays. It saddens me to say this hotel has been going down hill the last couple years. It really should be labeled a s just a BW now instead of a Plus. There is peeling paint in the hallway, mildew covered fire sprinkler in bathroom, stained curtains, bathroom wall dirty even had hair stuck to it, stained bottom sheets, and last year on my last visit I had to change rooms 3 times and just settled to stay in the 3rd room because it was less dirty of the 3. Unfortunately I am going to seek other hotels for future stays and hope this hotel gets redone soon. I will say staff has always been friendly and was very accommodating when I had to change rooms due to the lack of cleanliness. I brought this to the managers attention and she was friendly , apologetic and recognized they have had issues with being short staffed and housekeeping. She offered me a free night stay for the future which I have not redeemed at this time.

We stayed here on our way to Mammoth lakes. We chose it because it was reasonably priced and dog friendly. The room was large which meant room for me to set up the dogs ex-pen. They don't clean the rooms during your stay because of covid which was great. But the room seemed very clean when we arrived. I didn't notice any dog hair or dog smell.

The person at the front desk the day we checked out was super accommodating. Breakfast was only served until 9:30 am and I was out walking the dog and was worried I wouldn't make it back in time so I called. She said, no problem just take my time and she'd make sure I got something when I got back. I got back in time to get food but I appreciated her flexibility.

They didn't have their usual breakfast service and seating because of Covid but they had a grab and go breakfast including hot items like breakfast burritos and sandwiches.

We stayed here thinking that most Best Westerns were okay, but are sadly disappointed. Upon entering our room, I was over powered by the stench of wet dog. I immediately called the front desk and they offered to move us to another room, but that room only had one bed, so we had to stay in this disgusting wet dog room. If we weren’t so exhausted from traveling, we would left and found something else, anything else, slept in our car with our 8 year old and demanded a full refund! My son is highly allergic to animals. I’m sure he’ll wake up in the morning with his allergies acting up severely, swollen eyes, and a running nose! Fun times! The room just stinks like someone tried to mask the smell with a crapload or disinfectant spray, which was an offered resolution. That is completely unacceptable! Wish I could give this place a 0! It’s also very dated. I’d give it a 0 for cleanliness too, based solely on all of the hair on the bathroom floor. I’m completely freaked out to even sleep in the bed. This will be the very last time we ever stay in a Best Western! Best Western should be ashamed of themselves for having their name on this place! I’m just utterly disgusted! Yuck! 🤢 The stench just won’t go away. I even put some Vick’s under my nose to help with the stench of wet dog and it is not helping. Think I’ll email corporate this info as well. Just soooo gross!

Most hotels in California pride themselves on reducing their footprint and wasteful use of resources in areas that allow… such as replacing towels every day. If only staying two days it’s doubtful you would need your room cleaned. Although this is a Best Western, not the Carlyle, they were so accommodating when I was there, I’m sure you could ask and it will be provided.

Yes, as of June 2024. It is rectangular in shape, maybe over 6 feet wide and over 20 feet long. The jets on the left side were working but not those on the right side.
