“Best Hotel in Minden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We stayed at this hotel on our way to our vacation this place is very clean. We stay here a couple times a year and the staff is always so Awesome. My kids really like the pool and the breakfast. Another thing it is so quite. If anyone stays in Minden stay here cause I've stayed at the other hotels and this one is the best one so far.

My family had a reunion and we reserved a block at this hotel .The Hotel Staff took care of our big group, gave us rooms together and honored our special requests. The Pool and Fitness Room was a good amenity.
I was able to get a room close to the exit and park near my room. Breakfast was really good as well.

I stayed at Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Minden again in July 2013. My stay experience was just wonderful. The front desk ladies took care of my needs.
The Lobby, Public Areas and my Guest Room was very clean. The breakfast had a good choice of fresh fruit.

Newer properties are always a pleasure. This one is well situated, near a couple of c-stores and an important highway junction. Walkable restaurants opportunities are few but if you drive south on 395 to Carson Valley Inn, you'll find something you like.

One peeve is the tv...it's set for old analog 4:3 aspect and not a modern 16:9 HD. This could be remedied by altering a set-up setting.

Breakfast was decent and the view to the west is spectacular.

Room Tip: East facing rooms will get the first light. West facing rooms have the best view.

We (my husband and I) found that this hotel had some issues. One the elevator did what it wanted, went up when we asked to go down, ice machine you had to put your room key in to use this is not intuitive, and three the tv was reset, I had to scan for stations. But the beds were good, and the room clean, and the breakfast was good.

We booked a 2-queen suite. Very clean and fresh. Not much bigger than a regular room though. A bonus was no trouble with our 2 small dogs. No covered parking made the high heat very uncomfortable and the trees were too young to offer any shade. Has a nice laundry, exercise room and pool with spa (thank goodness for the spa!). Inside and out looked very nice and although new, was well maintained. Breakfast, although varied with choices is only average. Great coffee all day! All staff (regardless of position) we asked questions and opinions of were willing and invariably gave good recommendations and advice!! The staff was certainly the highlight of our stay there.

Room Tip: They only take dogs on the 1st floor - all dog rooms in the same corridor. A non-smoking facility. H...

This is one area Holiday Inn Express & Suites Minden excels. We love to help make our guests stay the best stay possible and the reviews show we take it seriously. I hope you have an opportunity to visit us again in the near future.

Check-in was a breeze. Fresh coffee and delicious cookies set for the afternoon. Breakfast was very good.....it's my first time to see an automatic pancake maker!
There was a Miss Nevada event in the hotel during our stay and it was fun to see all the beauty queens.

Dear "Drafted by/The Man,

Thank you very much for your kind words regarding your recent stay at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Minden. There is nothing like hot pancakes, real butter and syrup to start a day! Of course this is only one of 26 items we feature during our daily buffet style breakfast.

We too enjoyed hosting the Miss Nevada contestants. Did you get a chance to visit and have your picture taken with the ladies during our Ice Cream Social?

I hope you have occasion to visit us again in the near future.

Sincerely,

Debra Lang
