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. The Inn is... More

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. We stayed at the Motor Lodge, ate at Katies (which is always good, ask for Carmen) and will recommend it to anyone needed to get away... More

We were doing some skiing at Tahoe, and didn't realize the location was a bit too far. The map shows it's about 30 minutes drive, but that drive goes through the mountains and doing it in the dark, in snow and ice, during a storm - is simply not a great experience. If you're going to Tahoe in the winter,... More

The Carson Valley Inn is located down the hill from Lake Tahoe in Minden, NV. They feature a hotel, casino, coffee shop, steakhouse, cafe, RV park and gas station & store. We find it convenient to stay here a night before heading up to Lake Tahoe. The Inn is modern but reminiscent of an Old West hotel. The staff is... More

Stayed in the Motor Lodge, which is separate from the Casino and Main Hotel. The rooms appear to have been upgraded, and were very nice. Spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and area quiet; though people coming in late, did make noise. Not the fault of the hotel. The price was reasonable. A coffee maker, hair dryer, and iron/ironing... More

Booked through Expedia, was trying to stay at the inn, but because they chose rooms, we were given room at their motor lodge. Had to sigh a form saying wouldn't smoke in room, but was given a room that had ash tray, matches and smelled like smoke. Noticed cigerate burns in chair and carpet. Carpet stained and had cigerate burns.... More

This was our first stay at the CVI and chose to stay at the motor lodge section since we were visiting family and only needed the room for sleep. Rooms here are more affordable than other options for this hotel. The motor lodge is not connected to the actual Casino and Hotel, so you must check in there, then drive... More

We were extremely disappointed with our stay here. To start with, the receptionist at the front desk was very rude. She did not seem to think or care that she is in the hospitality industry. We checked in past 3:30PM. She announced to us that our room was not ready, that she was doing all she could and refused to... More

My 2 year old son and I stayed here overnight on our way to a family party. We played in the indoor pool and spa for more than an hour and we were the only ones there the whole time. Fantastic, since it was Friday night. The only thing that was a bit down putting was that we were put... More

I highly recommend this hotel if you are ever in Minden, Nv. Very nice spacious rooms, pool, jacuzzi. But I have stayed at nice hotels before, what separates this property from the others is the staff, they were very friendly and courteous. From the front desk manager Liz to Heather in house keeping. We were treated with A1 service. We... More
