Located just minutes away from charming downtown Truckee, and a short drive to Lake Tahoe, the Hampton Inn and Suites is surrounded by all the beauty and recreation that Tahoe has to offer. Because the hotel is a short 15-minute drive from the Ritz Carlton, you will have plenty of free time to challenge yourself with a round of golf at one of several nearby PGA courses, hike or bike scenic trails, jet ski on Donner Lake or breath-taking Lake Tahoe or white-water raft on the Truckee River. Or, if Mother Nature serves up an early winter, there are plenty of cold weather options with snow parks and ski resorts nearby. For those looking for a slower pace, soak in the sun poolside, shop one-of-a-kind boutique shops in historic Truckee and dine at local Zagat-rated restaurants.

Enjoy complimentary self-parking and WiFi, no resort fees and a generous, hot, home-style breakfast served daily at this TripAdvisor 4.5 star rated hotel.
