My wife and I stayed at the Historian from 9/12 - 9/14 and had a great experience. We were in town for two days to scout the area because we are relocating. The hotel amenities are very nice and comfortable, but the best part for us was the courtesy and helpfulness of the staff. Crystal helped us check in and... More

We had been to Reno and wanted to stop in Gardnerville at JT's for dinner and visit our son. We wanted a room close to the restaurant and the Historian Inn is right across the street. The room was spacious, had a fridge and a microwave. It was very clean and the bathroom was spotless. The decor was pleasing. There... More

My wife and I just stayed night one of three here. The wifi is fast, the room is big, there's a fridge and microwave in the room too. The bed is very comfy too. They do put a $100 hold on your credit card for incidentals in case you decide to keep the bathrobes or eat any of the snacks... More

Stayed here the last weekend in July 2014. We had no issues with the motel. The rooms were quiet and clean, and we felt the price was affordable. We really enjoyed the room decor and the beds were quite comfortable. The only thing we missed was a pool. This motel has no pool. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay... More

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...

It is important to note that your review was written about a stay nearly a year ago. It is difficult for us to pin point who you are and address your specific issues, but we do apologize if there were any issues in your billing and I am glad they were fixed. Regarding the noise level, and our neighbors, we... More

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
