The only problem was, this category of rooms is a Long walk from getting off of the elevator. I didn't know this when I... More

What an absolute nightmare. Never, ever again will we deal with Carson Valley Inn. My sister got married in Genoa on 08/14/16 and we had booked collectively 10 rooms with this casino.

We truly apologize that we couldn't accommodate your requests for early check-in before the check-in time of 3 pm and that we could not move the guest's "requested" smoking king through an on-line travel agent to a non-smoking king at the last moment. If you read our many excellent reviews you will see how accommodating we try to be with... More

We are sorry you were so disappointed with us. It is really important to be very careful when booking a room through an on-line travel agent. It can be very easy to make a mistake like booking a smoking room vs a non-smoking room. If we had not been sold out we would have gladly moved your room to a... More

Even though the Motor Lodge is separate from the hotel and casino, it is a mere short walk away from the main building, is quiet, comfortable, well maintained, and has ample parking. The ac was a welcome relief to the 100 degree outdoor temperatures endured while visiting the Carson Valley.

Thank you for your nice comments regarding our Motor Lodge. It is a more affordable alternative to our main hotel, but the bedding, towels, beds and amenities are the same as the main hotel.

We've stayed several times at the CVI and its always pleasant. This trip was in the Motor Lodge which was a first. The service was nice and the room was adequate. The Motor Lodge is a bit dated but they keep it clean and accommodating. We enjoy the main hotel more and would not hesitate to return to the CVI.... More

We stayed in the motor lodge. Contrary to other negative reviews, I thought the motor lodge was really nice. The king bed was very comfortable, the A/C was great, the bathroom had everything, and the room was very large. It was just a short walk to the main building. We enjoyed the indoor pool and spa.
