We were not sure what to expect, this place is so heavily under marketed. Chech in was a breeze with a super helpful and friendly staff member. Our room was a 1bed lake view room, which was amazing. Wonderful views , excellent room completely upgraded. Nice bathroom and well stocked kitchen. It is less than 10min drive to Boreal with...

I chose Donner Lake Village (DLV) despite some of the reviews I read because my trip was last-minute. I was lucky to get a room here at a great price with the help of very accommodating staff who were willing to let me "sleep on it" and book the next day after ensuring flights, etc. I was traveling solo and...

We arteries on a Friday and walked in our room. It smelled awful so I called and absolutely nothing was done. Finally we just opened up windows with temps outside at 30. Then we had to extend due to extreme snow and roads opened an hour later but they refused to provide any discount. Money is everything and services is...

We always have great stays at Donner Lake Village for our ski trips to Sugar Bowl. This week we stayed in a wonderful Lake View Studio room, making great use of the kitchen. During the rain and 7 feet of snow that shutdown the ski slopes, we enjoyed the fast free internet, TV channel selection and DVD player. The staff...

We spent a week here over Christmas break and had a great time. With the location so close to Sugar Bowl and Boreal we couldn't say no. Town is only a few miles down the road which provided us with the serenity we needed. My husband and I decided to get one of their deluxe/remodeled rooms, and was pleasantly surprised...

The location is such that the "resort" ( which needs to be dropped from its sign until they overhaul it!), would be paid back in spades if they bit the bullet and spent the money and time to start over. I personally would refer to it as a 2-star motel, but the location and view bumps it up to a...

There are pro's and cons to Donner Lake Village Resort. Pro's: right on the lake. Watersports equipment rental on site. Comfortable room. Small private beach. Close to Truckee. Con's: outdated rooms and fixtures. $114 per night for room over looking parking lot. Coffee maker leaked all over. Towel rack fell off of wall. Overall...I liked the place. Staff was nice,...

Dear Kelly, thank you for highlighting our beach, great location and easy access to watersport rentals. I was very sorry to hear about your towel rack falling and the coffee mishap. I hope that you notified the front desk so they could send someone to fix things while you were still with us. We hope you return to see us...

No, not the adult diapers! Everything about your time at this place depends on a few things. We've stayed here 4 times this past year and in general it's a pleasant experience. It doesn't reach a good or bad extreme. The first "depends" consideration is the room. Every room here is actually a privately owned condo. So every owner decorates...

Dear Duke, thank you for your comments about the unique and scenic location at Donner Lake Village. You are correct that the lake view rooms are the best, however as you noted, even if your room is not a lakeview, there is easy access to the lake from any room on the property. I did want to let you know...
