On a road trip from the Great Lakes area, we stayed in three Best Westerns, startiing in Rawlins, WY. This one in Truckee is by far the nicest, although about $70 more for a standard room. There are some similarities with all of them, but Truckee's was recently remodeled, and it shows. The fixtures and furnishings are clean and modern. Our standard rooms in all of the locations came with the usual amenities found in better hotels, such as a flat screen TV with plenty of channels (including movie channels), AC, wifi, comfortable beds, a fridge, small appliances, a dresser, etc. Not all of the others included a microwave or a small freezer above the fridge, as this one did. The only complaints we had with the room were small: The TV remote didn't work well (maybe needed batteries), there was no printed TV channel guide (since the remote wouldn't scroll through the guide screen by page, we had to select and view stations one at a time), and there was only one sink in the bathroom (a couple of the BWs had two sinks with mirrors). The breakfast and the room it's in was much nicer than at the other locations: The food was nicely presented, and there was a kitchen staff making sure guests were happy. All of the locations offered the same hot food: DIY waffles, scrambled eggs, eggs with veggies and cheese, bacon and sausage. But this location also offered biscuits and gravy and refried beans, as well as a wider variety of beverages. The young women at the front desk were very sweet. The building is attractive, and the surrounding scenery is in a class all its own - quiet, beautiful and fragrant pine woods, attractive residential neighborhood. There are a few nice restaurants right next door, and we had some great sushi at Drunken Monkey. We were just passing through and stayed only one night, but we were glad we chose this hotel. less
