Rooms are clean and cute. The older buildings do not have much lake view (some rooms have NONE) so I would ask for the newer one (probably costs more). They were redoing the parking lot when we were there so they gave a coupon for a future discount (would have rather had it NOW). Small beach and swimming dock. They need more comfortable outdoor seating and more on the patios. It was nice to hang out by the lake at the end of the day. Staff was pleasant and helpful.
Our main reason for staying here was easy access to various small lakes to kayak (Serene, Lake Valley, Fuller, Donner itself, and others) and for that it was convenient (I couldn't find anything but campgrounds really close to most of them). Also close to Boca, Prosser and Stampede reservoirs if you like big lakes.
We had a full kitchen to make meals. Pretty quiet at night, although you can hear Hwy 80 all the time and the trains come through at night.
Would possibly stay here again to explore more. We don't like the busyness of Tahoe, so it was preferable to staying there. Donner gets a lot of boat traffic but during the week after school started it was pretty calm. All in all good value.More
