I booked our room through Expedia and when I checked in at the hotel was told that "because we booked through Expedia we were automatically booked at the Motor Lodge. On the Expedia reservation site it states; "All guests must check in at the Carson Valley Inn.Guestrooms are located in both the hotel building and the motor lodge building, approximately 300 yards (274 meters) away.
We would have like to have stayed in the main hotel building and my suggestion would be to make that more clear on the site. Surprises like that are not good. The room was basic, but within easy walking distance to the main area. The only bummer about walking is, after you go swimming, you have to walk back to your hotel wet...= cold when windy.The pool temp was really nice, but the hot tub was luke warm. It says it's like 100 degrees, but not even close...maybe 85. In the morning, we were the only ones in the pool area, and that was relaxing and quiet. What makes this hotel above average is the staff and the entertainment. Period. The staff at Minden are superior. Everyone is really nice, especially the bartenders closest to the stage where the band Decades was playing. Decades is fabulous. We traveled 4 hours just to see them, and it's completely worth it. Great energy,talent and just pure FUN. Almost all of them sing, play a variety of instruments, and you can't help but dance and sing along! They know how to perform! You can tell the staff loves them too! As long as they keep having Decades play, we'll be back...but next time I'll be sure to book a room in the main lobby. Book early, the place can sell out pretty quick!
