Paid for a time share presentation by Dave Walley's Resort in Genoa. Because they are remodeling all of the units,they put us here. It was wonderful. Large quiet handicapped room for my Mom and me. We were on the same floor as the casino and restaurants so it was very easy to get around. Food was good in both the... More

Very pleasant front desk; room clean,lots of counter space in bathroom. Bed very comfortable. Fridge, large TV. Cons: not many outlets (3); none on lamps at bedside or desk. No makeup mirror in bathroom, straight (not curved) curtain rod in shower. I could hear the tv next door.

We live in Reno and recently stayed at this hotel for a lovely getaway. The remodeled rooms are very nice and the beds are comfortable. Our room was incredibly clean and quiet. The employees are extremely friendly and personable. They remembered our names and the bartender engaged in pleasant conversation while we were playing at the casino bar. We had... More

I stay in the main hotel ( not motor lodge which is very noisy) at least twice a month. All the rooms seemed to be decorated exactly the same which is boring after time. My last stay in room 232 had a horrible mattress which resulted in a bad nights sleep. Smoke odor in the hotel is really bad also!... More

Dear Business Traveler: Thank you for your review. Your comments have been duly noted and we are addressing the issues. We are looking at the bed in 232 as we speak. It is possible we missed a bed that needed replacing our last go around. We do have extra beds in inventory to replace a bed at a moment's notice.... More

I recently stayed at the Carson Valley Inn while on business in Gardnerville. Upon arrival I was immediately put off by the poor lighting, outdated decor and stale stench of cigarettes lingering in the corridors. That said, my room was odor-free, the bed was comfortable and I slept really well. Every hotel employee I encountered was exceptionally friendly, and breakfast... More

Thank you for your comments and we are very happy to hear that our staff is doing a nice job of making you feel welcome and that you liked the cleanliness of the property and the food in our restaurants. The Carson Valley Inn underwent extensive remodelling during the past five years, so we're a little confused as to how... More

We stayed at this hotel for a car meet, the staff was friendly and courteous and the restaurant on property served excellent meals. It is close to Carson City and all its attractions. Was an easy daytime drive to Lake Tahoe and Virginia City.

We pulled into this hotel pretty late but they still had rooms available. We opted to stay in the lodge which is in a separate building from the hotel and casino and priced a little lower. The room was pretty basic, but nice and clean. We couldn't get the wifi in our room to work and couldn't get any help... More

Dear Guest: Thank you for your review. We followed up quickly on this today and found out that our Internet Services provider recently initiated an ad campaign without our knowledge. It becomes an income source for our provider to run these ads. These ads were of the pop up variety that quickly become irritating. Please be assured that they most... More

We stayed at the Carson Valley Inn while attending a local event. Our room was very clean and spacious. The staff was efficient and friendly. They have very nice amenities including restaurants, a pool, hot tub, gas station, conference rooms and a casino. We enjoyed the casino and the Inn was very generous with their casino comps.

We just needed a night away, son and daughter-in-law live in the area. Room was clean, bed comfortable, towels nice and thick, toilet flushing was loud as were people coming to their rooms late.
