Choose from intimate to family-sized accommodations

Located in the heart of Downtown Truckee, California, just across the railroad tracks from boutique shopping and dining, the Tahoe Star Hotel is the preferred historic lodging downtown because of on-site parking, private bathrooms, and modern amenities. Stay with us, and we’ll do our best to ensure you have a great experience in the Truckee/Lake Tahoe area, gateway to year-round High Sierra adventures!

The hotel consists of eight comfortably appointed guest rooms, two on the main floor, the other six up the stairs on the second floor. Please keep in mind; we do not have an elevator to the 2nd floor. We have installed advanced light technology air scrubbers throughout the entire HVAC system to continuously cleanse the air in all rooms for your safety and health.

In the summer, kick back and enjoy our lovely patio under starry skies; in the winter, relax with a book or in our lounge there is a big-screen T.V. for guest access.

All rooms and property are Non-smoking.

We welcome children of all ages, and children under the age of two stay for free. If you require a pack n’ play, please let us know in advance.
