I was expecting to find a small older and out dated hotel room. Surprise!!! the rooms were updated, huge, very clean, well kept and comfortable. We had a big, and cheep, breakfast that satisfied us until dinner. Pool was shaped like the state of Nevada and had all the states big city's marked. Had two hot tubs each with a... More

We stayed in the motor lodge for one night. I thought the walk from the main property to the lodge was not too bad, but the wife felt it was an inconvenience & not worth the savings. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well sized. Toilet and shower are squeezed together in a tight space. They have a large inside... More

The smoke filled casino is horrendous and we were required to walk through the area in order to get to the restaurant. The rooms we were assigned to at the Motor Lodge were in dire need of cleaning. On the plus side, the meal we had there was very good and the staff friendly and helpful.

We are sorry the smoke in the casino bothered you. We do have a state of the art system which circulates volumes of fresh air from the outside at all times. Unfortunately when the casino is really busy you can't do much about smoke. This is true with all casinos in Nevada. We do apologize for the inconvenience. Also, I... 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

Thank you very much for your kind words. CV Steak has proven to be one of those great value restaurants. You get the upper scale experience without the big bill at the end. Did you see the size of those baked potatoes!! I still have never seen anything like it anywhere else. Anyway, we will forward your comments to Kylie... 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.

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

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.

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
