“Excellent quality-price ratio!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We got a room for the night, upon advice of Mrs. Elvira (Overland Basque Restaurant owner, Gardnerville NV). Their receptionist Nicole was very friendly and professional, we immediately felt we were welcomed with kindness. Our room was very nice and comfortable, they even have complimentary high-quality Tarocco products in the bathroom, breakfast at Katie's was also great and we enjoyed their slot machines too. Our only advice is for them to provide a coffee machine in the rooms. Other than that, this place is EXCELLENT!!!!

I recently completed my 4th stay at Carson Valley Inn. The staff, the restaurants, the casino...everything always exceeds my expectations!

Definitely try Katie's Country Kitchen's daily specials, but make sure you visit CV Steak and try the Ahi Tuna! I search for Ahi Tuna that is equal and I have never found it.

Carson Valley Inn has great entertainment too. I follow them on Facebook to stay up to date.

Room Tip: 4 different rooms and I have never been disappointed!

Went for a two-day getaway near home and this place fit the bill nicely. Has to be one of the cleanest casinos i have ever seen. Rented a suite and it was very nice and ate at the diner for breakfast (very good and good service) and the steak house for dinner and can't say enough about what a great meal it was. From the atmosphere to the personnel to the amazing food, one of the best meals had in a very long time. We iwll be back

This place keeps getting better with each visit. There is still room for improvement, but our stay was very ncie and we had a lot of fun. We upgraded to a suite this time and it was awsome. Very large room with bar, living area, comfortable furnishings, nicely decorated. Two large flat screen TVs (livingroom and bedroom). 2 person jacuzzi spa in bedroom. Bathroom nice too. Ate at both the diner and steakhouse. The diner (Katie's) was good and very afforable (GREAT VALUE). Steackhouse was very good. The burger was awesome and, yes, I ate the whole thing (3/4 lb - double patty - double cheese). Gaming area was a lot of fun too. Nice selection of slots and very friendly dealers. Waitresses were always available when needed. I did not use the fitness center, but went for a run. Easy flat run straight down Buckeye Road.

Room for Improvement: Larger (and better) selection of tap beers at bars. Microwave in rooms. More access to power outlets in room (especually near beds) for phone charges, iPads charges, etc., easier access to turn on lights in room (more wall switches)

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite, you wont be disappointed.

We hang around there in the winter time because we do skiing. The place is really great as far as the staff goes. We usually just go without reservation and the front desk always have a great attitude...........Don't forget the real TALL guy that usually takes our skis. He's the greatest. Very dry sense of humor, but the best.

Have stayed here before. Staff, food, rooms are all good. My complaint is that
the place is noisy. Renovation going on during the day, can hear neighboring rooms flush toliets,
hear conversations etc. Can also hear cars and noise from the parking lot.

Room Tip: Wait until all the renovations are done

cvimatt, Manager at Carson Valley Inn, responded to this review, February 14, 2013
Thank you for your comments. We are indeed completing a remodel of our bathrooms in our standard rooms. We do apologize for the noise associated with this project. The project is nearly complete (end of February) and will make for a much more up to date feel and is the completion of our hotel remodel projects over the last three years in order to meet a higher standard our guests expect. If you will contact the Director of Hotel Operations, we'd love to make it up to you during your next stay. Again, we do apologize for any inconvenience.

This is more about the RV Park at the CVI. We stayed here the past 30 days because we were visiting family in Carson. This place is awesome, what really sold us was the enclosed dog area. Most places have nothing so we were impresssed. We ate at the CV Steak House and Katies often and the food in both places were very good. The Pork at CV Steakhouse (AWESOME). The lady who sets you up the the RV park is Liz ( I Think), anyway she did everything she could over the phone to assist me prior to coming. The park is very well kept and trash emptied often. So overall, I would highly recommend this place.
