Route to Minden is beautiful If you don't get a hotel in South Lake Tahoe, definitely consider Minden Holiday Inn as an option. It is a nice hotel with friendly staff. There is a Subway right next to the hotel. Overall a beautiful small town & a nice hotel

I stayed here 1 night after a week long backpacking trip in Yosemite. No complaints --- room was comfortable and clean. Price was reasonable and continental breakfast was tasty (of course, I was ravenous). I would definitely stay here again...

Location work well for us because after the second night we were headed to Yosemite via east Tiago Road entrance. If just going to Tahoe it would have been a bit of a drive. Would say it was a typical Holiday Inn Express. i.e predictable and not disappointing

Minden is a small town about 35min from tahoe. It located in the valley on the the other side of the mountains from the heavenly resort. Because of the location this is one of the best locations in the USA for thermals. That means there is paragliding, gliders running most of the year. My wife and I took the 'soaring...

Stayed Sunday night on a trip to see family members. Grandson loved the indoor pool and the king room was nice but on the small side. Odd room design with a long hallway. Breakfast items for everyone's taste. The tables and sound deadening between rooms seemed lacking and the bed was quite firm. I woke up with aching muscles and...

The customer service at this hotel was terrible. When we checked into the room there were five hairs in that bath tub. When we asked for them to be cleaned up - they only cleaned the tub partially. Additionally, when I would go to the front desk the attendants were either too busy on their cell phones or to busy...

Friendly check in...clean new looking hotel nicely located in Minden, NV. Genoa is only 5 minutes away. Room was quiet and clean. Stay includes free buffet breakfast. Bed was comfy. The excellent chocolate chip cookies upon arrival did not hurt either and along with coffee are available 24 hours a day....a winning combination! Will stay here again if passing by...

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting friends. Clean & well maintained property, pricier than the other local hotels bug worth it. Nice buffet breakfast, several eateries within walking distance, and surprisingly quiet given its proximity to 88 and 395. I would have given it a 5 rating except for the bed - not great but not terrible, I've slept...

Our experience with Holiday Inn Express Hotels has generally been quite positive, and our stay at this hotel is best described as "as expected". The rooms were clean, the staff was pleasant and the hotel was quiet. Breakfast was not particularly exciting, but it was good and again what you would expect. Wi-Fi worked well with reasonable speed. The parking...
