I have been on Christmas week for skiing, the hotels in Lake Tahoe area were very expensive on the holidays week, I decided to book at Carson valley inn hotel, and I didn't regret it. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, space room, and the employees very politely. The distance to Heavenly Ski resort is 30 minutes... More

Thank you for your kind words. The CVI is an attractive alternative for skiers to the expensive South Shore properties. Even the motels at the lake are expensive, especially on the weekends. One of our advantages is we are in a great location to go to either Heavenly or Kirkwood and many Epic pass holders do like to take advantage... More

Long road trip and this place had everything thing I could ask for under one roof. Value value value.great for the wallet great for my stomach great for my sleep. Two different kitchens under one roof two different bars. Rooms are comparable to a 200.room for hundred bucks that's where I like to save my cash.

Thank you very much for your comments. One of the the things we offer at the Carson Valley Inn is a variety of choices including price points. The Motor Lodge is about 300 yards from our main casino. People can come to the main property and enjoy all the amenities such as restaurants, casino and pool/spas and still get away... More

I stayed here (in the motor lodge) twice over the past two months for business. Both times I was pleased with the service and had a nice quiet stay. I was looking for something where I wouldn't smell smoke from the casino and could have a nice quiet comfortable room. This offered all of those things at a very reasonable... More

Thank you for your nice words about our Motor Lodge. We do offer different price points which makes it convenient for guests to choose which property they would prefer. Our Motor Lodge has the same great towels, beds and bedding that we have in our hotel. So, it is a nice alternative to the main hotel in the restaurant and... More

We have stayed at the Carson Valley Inn for several years. This year was another nice experience (after a reservation glitch was cleared up). The rooms are very comfortable with great beds and bathrooms--not fancy, but very nice. The diner-style restaurant is great--the food is always appealing, filling, and inexpensive.

Stayed two nights in an 3rd floor room facing the mountains. Slept well, room was clean and kept clean by staff. All the staff we talked to was very friendly and ready to help if asked. We made reservation by the internet, but if we had to do it again we would prefer to talk to staff rather than fill... More

Thank you for your feedback and nice words. We do strive to provide personalized service. You bring up a very important point. Using the phone to book your reservation is still the best way to get what you want. A live person can always do more for you than a computer. When it comes to the computers one has to... More

Once again we had the pleasure of staying at the Carson Valley Inn located in Minden, NV.

Great accommodations. One thing that really stands out and was appreciated was how nice everyone was! Our only minor issue was that we requested a third floor room when we made our reservation weeks earlier and they gave us second floor. Large parking lot. We stayed in the main building otherwise you'd have a long walk. Katie's restaurant was excellent.... More

Those were very nice comments. Thank you. We do try to be sure we're friendly to all of our guests. Glad you noted there is a difference between our Hotel and Motor Lodge which is a 300 yard walk from the main hotel/casino/restaurant complex. Sometimes guests get confused about that when booking on-line. Thank you again and we hope to... More

This negative review is mainly because of the restaurant inside the Inn. We went to the fancy CV Steakhouse in the Inn and waited an hour and fourty five minutes to be served the prime rib special that night. The restaurant was less than half full on a Saturday night, so I suppose I should have been alerted. It is... More

Thank you for your kind words about our RV. It is a nice park and we would like to have a little more room. While it has been well maintained it was designed in a time where RVs were a little smaller. Perhaps we can address this in the future. Again, thank you for your comments. Yours Truly, Matt Carter...

Hello: We're glad you enjoyed our RV Park. I'm sorry that we don't preassign RV locations before guests arrive. There is a good reason we do this. The nature of our RV guest is such that they often change their travel plans. As you can imagine it becomes a big issue to ask them to move for preassigned arriving guests,... More
