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

I recently attended a wine tasting hosted by the UNR IEEE Student Branch at the Historian Inn. They were very accommodating and friendly. It was a neat little place, the room the wine tasting was in was setup nicely. The only bad thing was on one wall where an air conditioner unit or something use to be was just a... More

We enjoyed our one night stay. The office was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. The bedding was very nice. Merchandising aspects are a bit unique with food and beverage in the room with you, each listed with its price. Robes are for sale. A straight forward approach but a little gauche. Sparse breakfast. We felt safe.It... More
