One mile southeast of the center of Truckee, the Best Western has a quiet location on the edge of Ponderosa Golf Course, in a wooded, mostly residential area, one block away from CA 167 to Kings Beach, Lake Tahoe
. The surrounding Tahoe National Forest has many opportunities for hiking, fishing and skiing - in winter the inn provides a shuttle to several local ski runs. The Best Western has 2 floors and 100 rooms, in a square shaped building with a central courtyard, gardens and heated outdoor pool. Free full breakfast is served, and drinks are available all day at the hotel's cocktail lounge; for other dining there is a Pizza Hut Express facility on the premises and plenty of other restaurants in downtown Truckee.
