This place is the worst value I have ever experienced. My room was on the second floor facing a major thoroughfare. The exhaust pipes from the tractor trailers were at the same height as my room. They would idle all night long and not only could you hear them, and whatever music selection they were listening to, as well as... More

I am sorry that you were unhappy with your stay. As you can see from our many positive reviews and high area rating; most guests do enjoy our hotel. If I understand correctly, it seems that your biggest issue was the location of the room that you booked. We have 4 Standard Hotel Rooms which are on the second floor... More

This hotel even with its faults is better than the Holiday Inn Express (more expensive/pre-fab bkfst) or Carson Valley Inn (very smokey and noisy). I have stayed in both. Here are the positives and negatives. Positives: 1. Good location if you want to explore historic areas, antiques, casinos. 2. Pet frirendly - fabulous dog park with picnic tables and beautiful...

We're snowbirds and go back and forth along Highway 395 from near the Mexican border to Washington. And we most always spend out first night going north at the Historian Inn. It is on the main street but the rooms are in the back and it is quiet. The rooms are well appointed with large bath towels, plenty of soap... More

I have used this hotel for a number of business related trips to the area. Would return here on personal travel without question. The well appointed rooms are excellent. The staff outstanding in every respect. Location is great. Once I park the car a great variety of restaurants, shops, and even laundry are within short walking distance. What brings me... More

The Historian Inn has recently undergone a renovation and has a new owner. We stayed there for four nights in April 2014. Although the rooms are simple, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spotless and new. There was a microwave and mini fridge and free breakfast in the quaint little area near the lobby. Mostly the owner... More

It's a very nice hotel in Gardnerville and I was really impressed by the warmth of the customer service. Slept very well, it was quiet in our room not facing the highway. Would stay here again with no second thoughts.

This is probably the nicest affordable inn in Gardnerville area. They offer a very basic breakfast, which is nice, the little on site market has some essentials and unusual gifts, quite a few from local or area merchants. Very nice owners. Very clean. Mattress is VERY comfortable and we slept well. Only drawback is highway noise, so ask for room... More
