2000 Northstar Drive, Village Unit 224, Truckee, CA 96161

Rustic suite in the heart of Northstar w/ shared pool & hot tub! Close to ski!

This comfortable studio condo provides cozy lodging for up to four guests in the heart of Northstar! Perched right on the main walk in the Village at Northstar, you won't find a more convenient location at a better price; best of all, the studio offers all the comforts of home, from cable TV to Internet access to a nicely equipped kitchenette.

The studio-style condo has two comfortable queen beds, making it perfect for a small family getaway or two couples traveling together. Walk to the ski lifts, or to the movie theater just down the street. The Village's ice-skating rink is steps away, along with world-class shopping and dining. The nearby NPOA Recreation Center offers year-round swimming pools, hot tubs, tennis courts, and workout facilities (the guest passes provided in the condo allows you access to all of these amenities for just $2/day). You will also enjoy one private parking spot in the lot adjacent to the building - where others have to pay valet rates!

While you're surrounded by amazing dining options, the condo has a nicely stocked kitchenette so you can prepare light meals and snacks. You'll find a coffeemaker, mini-fridge, and microwave, along with wineglasses and a corkscrew so you can linger over a long conversation and bottle of wine in the evening. Just across the street is a gourmet deli and taqueria, so you can easily grab a quick dinner to enjoy in the comfort of your condo after a long day's explorations.

There is one full bath as well, and a cable TV with DVD player. Enjoy the views of the slopes and mountains above right from your window, or step out onto your Village-view patio to soak up the sights along with the fresh mountain air.

Skiing couldn't be more convenient, and in the summer Northstar features downhill mountain biking from the gondola as well. Northstar's golf course uniquely offers a "mountain nine" and a "valley nine" to challenge your game. Truckee is just two miles away, and Kings Beach/Lake Tahoe are just six miles. The whole area is served by public buses that connect to Northstar less than a block from the condos. One private parking spot for the condo is in the closest lot at Northstar.

Treat yourself to a fabulous mountain vacation at premier North Lake Tahoe lodging without breaking the bank!

Location was great...amenities were pretty good too.
Donna E. Aug 2018
Hotel style room right on the premises of the Village at Northstar. Loved how close we were to the lifts and all the stores. It was also super convenient that the little market/store was just down from our room! Would recommend if you want to be close to everything at Northstar!
Harold F R. May 2018
The location is great. Cost of the unit was reasonably priced and every effort was made to make sure our time there was enjoyable. Very easy check in and check out.

Great location in the Northstar village for money! A parking space included. Easy load and unload in the garage with access to the elevator. Not fancy but clean and great for a few days at Northstar.
Jawann S. Mar 2018
Important note: if you stay for one night and are planning to ski the following day, you will likely have to move your car as the parking pass must be returned upon checkout. Pretty much just a bedroom and bathroom, but the location and value can’t be beat. Would stay again.
Derrick T. Mar 2018
Room smelled and hasnt been updated in 50 years except for the TV. Bed had a nice foam topper but the decor is lacking.....unless you want to travel back in a time warp.
Manager Response:
The owner is not interested in making any changes at this time. We apologize if this comes as a disappointment to this guest.
Emily W. Feb 2018
The property location was great. The unit itself was very dated, cramped and not like the pictures promoted. The beds were unkempt and the sheets had an awful, used smell to them (or may have been the comforter or pillows). Luckily we had two beds and ended up sharing, because the other was not in condition to be used.
Manager Response:
We are sorry to see this guest was dissatisfied with some aspects of their stay. The mattresses were replaced last month, and we are hoping to have the bedding upgraded in the near future. The sheets are changed between each stay, and we apologize for any odors the guest experienced with them and wish they had contacted us regarding the matter.
Louis C. Jan 2018
Suggestion. Sofa bed would leave a lot more room for people needing only one bed. Many sofa beds are now very comfortable with new age foam and or airbed mattresses in them.
Manager Response:
The owner is not interested in replacing the bed with a sofa bed at this time, but we do hope guests enjoy the new queen mattress in place!
Shu Yu W. Jan 2018
You get what you pay for, good location but bad bedding quality. Will pay a bit more for a good night sleep
Manager Response:
We are sorry to see the beds did not suit this guest's preferences.
Carol W. Nov 2017
Staying in Northstar Village is great! Such a beautiful environment and Truckee has great places for food and drinks. The room itself is satisfactory. I was there on business and it served the purpose of convenience.
Harold B. Sep 2017
For what we did this weekend resort was very adequate. Never had the chance to use more of resort facilities which would have been nice given what was offered. Would certainly go back especially during snow season.
Ken F. Aug 2017
Location is great. Reserved parking is huge. This unit is fine for two or three people. Four is pushing it. Decor is classic 1984. Not bad, but an interesting time warp.
Dianna C. Jul 2017
This is a very simple room, probably hasn't been updated since it was a new build and was kind of dirty. On the plus side the beds were comfortable and AC was good.
It was okay as we weren't in our room very much.
Jodi N. Apr 2017
nothing fancy but great location and price. you do hear walking and plumbing, though, so bring your ear plugs!
Julie L. Mar 2017
I love being right in the village. The studio had everything we needed for our mini getaway. I loved having a closet space for our ski gear and all the extra hooks to hang our ski clothes was appreciated. I'm already looking at staying there again soon. It was nice to receive emails confirming our stay and very detailed so there wrre no surprises when we arrived. I do wish they would list how much the VRBO fees was going to be before you booked the room. You don't know until you get the bill on your credit card. My fee was 50.00.
Cynthia W. Mar 2017
This is a skier's crash pad, nothing more or less. Noisy in the mornings. Location is the saving grace.
Pete W. Mar 2017
This unit is located right next to the village and is in a great location to ski off the mountain. As far as skiing went it was PERFECT!

Its once you actually get off the mountain and in to this unit is why I am giving it a 2-Star review. First of all don't be fooled by the pictures, this place is smaller than your average Motel 6. The cable didn't work, the wi-fi was extremely poor, half the lights weren't functional and each night I was awoken at 4 A.M. in the morning to a snowplow right outside the front door that spent most the time obnoxiously backing up with the steady ring of a garbage truck in reverse.

I know that is not the owners fault of Northstar cleaning at 4 A.M. but needless to say it wasn't the "vacation" I had in mind.
Gabrielle H. Feb 2017
The room is very cramped with the existing furniture. The beds are old, very soft and the bedding is extremely dated which always raises the question of cleanliness.
There is poor airflow in the room and the wall heater is very noisy and creates a uncomfortable draft on the closer bed- nor really usable when people are in the room
Mark G. Jan 2017
Unit was clean, best used just for sleeping. Ski closet was nice. In the middle of many restaurants. Easy walk to gondola. Can't beat this place on price/location value.
Manuela S. Jan 2017
You can't being IN the village, but besides that this is really no more than a hotel room. Works only for a family.
Marlena D. Nov 2016
Unfortunately what we didn't know and the website never told us was northstar village was shut down so it was like a beautiful ghost town. The location would have been perfect had everything been open we picked that location for the ice skating the shops and all the other conveniently-located attractions but none of them were open the room we stayed in was rather run down and dirty it kind of felt like a Motel 6 to us the elevator was broken and we were three flights up I personally would not stay at that location again
Manager Response:
We apologize that this guest was taken by surprise by the resort being temporarily shut down for winter preparations. This condo is one of the originals built when Northstar was first open, so, it is older, but it is also functional and in a good location. Unfortunately, the elevator is out of our control; building maintenance is actively working on getting it up and running for the winter season.
Jim S. Oct 2016
This place needs a face lift...
Manager Response:
We are sorry to see that this guest was disappointed with the cosmetics of the unit. Everything is in working order for our guests, and we hope that our guests would contact us if they needed assistance with any maintenance issues during their stay.
Chris N. Sep 2016
Awesome experience
William A. Jul 2016
Everything was good
Thomas F. Jun 2016
Location location location.
Cristina B. Apr 2016
Great spot.
Katherine C. Apr 2016
Great location but room needs renovation
Emily M. Mar 2016
Perfect location in Northstar. Unit is not fancy, but who wants to hang in the room anyways. Beds are comfortable. Shower head is a bit low.
Thomas H. Feb 2016
We were a bit confused the last day we stayed there. The instructions told us to leave by 11:00 and put the parking pass back in the room. It did not state if we could stay parked for the day of snow boarding.
Pauline O. Feb 2016
Would go again, but expected a bit more.
Marie Grace L. Feb 2016
We'll definitely go back and stay here again.
Terry H. Jan 2016
The price was good, but the location on 2nd floor was not great. Noisy people above us kept us awake in the wee hours of the morning.
June E. Sep 2015
Great location for parking and elevator, also for nearby Northstar restaurants (the ones that were open) and the rec area.
Lynn G. Aug 2015
Nice place for 2! Right in the village but no shopping, 95% of the stores are closed or ski type shops. They did have a Starbucks open, the hit of the village. No souvenir shops. You need a car to run errands, get groceries, etc. Pool $2/day. Bring washcloths, none available. No day to day cleaning bring pool towels.
Tim C. Apr 2015
I had a couple night stay with my kids during their Spring Break and the room was perfect for the rate charged. The kids really enjoyed being right in the village and steps away from the gondola and rink. We would stay again.
Alicia S. Mar 2015
If you are looking for a simple and clean place to stay at Northstar this will fit the bill. It is a little small for a family of 4, especially with all our snow gear but we spent most of the time outside anyways. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. We did not cook there - that would have been hard since one of the beds is practically right up against the mini kitchen area but I was glad to have the mini fridge and microwave.
Robin P. Dec 2014
Literally steps from the resort gondola, easy access with skis, and very cheery staff.
Erin M. Sep 2014
This is right in the village of Northstar and didn't have to drive anywhere once we arrived. Great location and place clean. 2 queen beds and 4 adult stayed comfortably.
Brandon C. Aug 2014
It may feel like Motel 6 when you first walk in but there is a great deal more to this offer! The recreation center is HUGE for just $2 a day. Plenty for the kids and adults. You cannot find a better deal than this and enjoy a luxurious getaway for the price.
Christine C. Apr 2014
Very comfortable room!
Larry . Apr 2014
Nice to be so close to all the attractions of the village. The place is in good shape overall!
Gustavo R. Feb 2014
Right in the middle of the village of the ski resort. Several spots for dining and enjoying the winter on the mountains . I loved the seats around the fire pits, they were great for toasting marshmallows and drinking hot cocoa while watching people ice skating.

The Room had two beds and they were very comfortable. Tv with cable and several channels. The room size was ok, there is a kitchenette area with microwave, coffee maker, sync and fridge. Not a lot of space or anything fancy. But good enough to spend the days right in the middle of everything.

The room was very warm too, without the heat on the room kept a comfortable temperature inside overnight even though outside was snowing and around 28F.
Ryeland G. Sep 2013
Its a place to crash. If you're looking for a inexpensive place to stay while you do your activities its very good for a couple, maybe family of four.
