Cleaning for Your Stay

We want to let you know, as we move forward, our reemergence will include additional diligent cleaning protocols. Prior to reopening, each Donner Lake Village room will be deep cleaned. After guests' departures, we will have additional safety steps that include stringent cleaning and disinfecting. We take our commitment to cleanliness and care very seriously and are working to ensure the wellbeing of our guests and staff.



We have researched the experts' most recommended and effective cleaning products against COVID-19 and have integrated these products in our cleaning. Additionally, we now have new, more stringent cleaning procedures to ensure a safe stay for owners and guests.

  • Donner Lake Village is using a CDC/EPA List-N registered cleaning/disinfecting agent certified against COVID-19 in public space disinfecting, as well as general housekeeping and room disinfecting.
  • A minimum of 48 hours will be required between stays to safeguard the protection of guests, as well as housekeepers. This allows extra time to implement additional and more thorough cleaning procedures and inspections.
  • Hand sanitizer stations have been added at high traffic points throughout the Donner Lake Village.
  • We are utilizing hospital-grade disinfectants recommended by the CDC.
  • Our housekeeping department is paying particular attention to disinfecting high touchpoints, including light switch panels, remote controls, table lamp switches, faucets and doorknobs.
  • We have increased the frequency of cleaning public spaces, including the Front Desk, stair rails, door handles, public bathrooms, and Kaba Door Locks.
  • We have established social distance protocols and guidelines for safe and spacious check-ins and check-outs.

We are committed to providing the highest quality care for our guests. We will continue to monitor the latest guidance from federal, state and local officials on a regular basis and will update our information and protocols based on best and safest practices.
