The room we had was so nice, very clean, comfy bed with a lot of pillows. I loved the decor, rooms are very spacious and everyone was so nice from gals at... More

The Carson Valley in extremely great in every sense of the word. The best part of visiting here is the food service for sure! You have many choices and many prices on the spectrum. The best for service and ambiance when you want to go "upscale" or for a "special" night, is CV Steak. Our wait staff was Kylie and... More

I have stayed at the CVI for over 25 years. My wife and I just returned from staying there for six nights. My wife said it was one of the best vacation ever. Our room was great, nice view out the back. Beds were great, TV worked great and the shower water was hot. The coffee shop Katies is excellent.... More

Wow! Those are great comments. Thank you so much for your kind words. One of our advantages over some of the bigger casinos in Reno and at the Lake is that we are not so big that you become a number to us. We want our guests to have a personal experience. Admittedly we are not perfect, but that is... More

Hello. Thank you for your comments. We're glad you've become a loyal guest. There is something others can learn from this review. Even when we are sold out rooms can become available at the last moment because of early check-outs and last minute cancellations. We are a casino and as one of our gaming customers you receive some attractive offers... More

This is the third time we've stayed here, and is always clean and adequate. Mattress is perfect for hubby which is a plus. We stay on the other side, the motel side, and I'm not sure about the casino rooms, but there is no fridge or microwave. But, the room is not the reason we visited Minden.

We stayed here for 2 nights for a little anniversary getaway and I have to say I was not impressed.We ate at Katies Country Kitchen while we waited for our room and although the service was good the food was not very good.

Thank you for your comments. We also received your guest comment card so we did follow up on the issues with your room in the hotel. It seems our housekeeper cleaned your room as a "stayover" as she did not properly read her paperwork. The room was not cleaned for a new guest. There is no excuse for the cobweb... More

Stayed in the lodge part of this property (not in the casino hotel). The room is dated looking, but had a new flat screen TV and a small refrigerator which was nice. Even though it was "dated" it doesn't make a difference to me (other than I do notice it) because the room was clean and cleaner then some 4-5... More

This is a old hotel, upgraded and remodeled. Nothing special but it is comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Food ok again nothing special. Bed in our upgraded room was very comfortable. Our room was quiet but seemed a bit dark, hard to read unless you are by a window.

Before we moved to the beautiful Carson Valley three years ago we always stayed here when visiting. Now when we have more guests than we can accommodate in our home we book rooms in this clean and attractive hotel. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The Inn's coffee shop is a great place for breakfast and the Steak House... More
