The views from hotels in the Truckee/Tahoe region of California's Sierra Nevada mountains are stunning. Waking up in our room at the Hampton Inn & Suites, we were treated to a constantly-changing view of mist slowly ascending out of the valley. After a long breakfast downstairs, we were ready to explore the Truckee area, but as the afternoon chill became too much to bare, we gladly returned to the hotel for some relaxation, including cookies and hot cider from the lobby.
The Hampton Inn & Suites is a great choice for families or couples visiting the Truckee/Tahoe region. It has everything that I hope for in a hotel--it's quiet and clean; the rooms are large and comfortably-appointed with a fridge, microwave, and plenty of space; and the bathrooms include a soaking tub with jets to soothe those aching muscles after outdoor activities. The hotel is family friendly and the two-room suite was perfect for my family of four.
