Something for everyone here. There is a Hotel/Casino, RV park as well as motor lodge. I stayed at the motor loge, which was $30.00 cheaper a night. It was also a lot quieter and I didn’t have to inhale cigarette smoke from the casino. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Hotel's Favorite
The room was clean, pleasant and the resort was accommodating with all needs available. We stayed in the Motor Inn so were away from the Casino which was nice as there was no noice from the activities there. Minden is a small and picturesque community. We were only about 20

We're glad you brought this up. A major advantage of staying at the Carson Valley Inn is our restaurants. Katie's Country Kitchen is open 24 hours and serves an incredible breakfast for a very affordable price. You are right, the chicken fried steak and hamsteak are both huge. And they're really good cuts of meat. We have great specials every day in Katie's. I have guests tell me all the time that they can't feed themselves at home for what it costs CV Steak might be one of the best price values for a steakhouse in Northern Nevada. It is a great restaurant in an upscale, yet casual setting. Thank you for your kind comments Gerald. Yours Truly, Matt Carter Director of Hotel Operations

This stop on our trip was an over night chance to relax and get a great meal in the hotel restaurant. We were staying in the RV park which is laid out well and is very dog friendly as well as people friendly. The only drawback we found was that there is very little light when

The room was clean and quiet. No elevator, so ask for downstairs if you have an issue. Good value for the money and next door to the amenities of the CV Inn. Got an email from CV Inn saying contact them for best rates, but i just did and Booking.com was cheaper!

Thank you very much for your kind response. It looks like you stayed in our Motor Lodge which does not have an elevator. We do have an elevator in the main hotel wihch is attached to the main casino, restaurants and other amenities. Thanks. Matt Carter Director of Hotel Operations

I believe that there is a shuttle to South Shore. The front desk should be able to advise.

"Facing the meadow, won't get the main street noise."
"The 3rd floor where I normally stay, is very quiet!"
"Choose a room on the top floor if your looking for some quiet."
"We didn't stay at the hotel. We only went to pool and ate at restaurant. Great breakfast and great value for the money."
"Rooms on second floor, or higher, located on the parking lot side of the Inn are quieter and offer nice views."
