This hotel/casino is dated , but convenient. The bathrooms are huge and tons of counter space! Rooms are a little noisy with upper level walking, but the price is good. Clean, roomy and the casino/hotel is small enough for big groups to meet and greet during stay. Lots of conference rooms available for cocktail/meetings.

We came for a wedding so spent two nights. I booked us in the motor lodge instead of the inn because it was cheaper. I did not realize it was a couple of blocks to the inn where the gym and pool are. Decent weather so okay, but I wouldn't do that again. No refrigerator or safe. Those are almost... More

Thank you for your comments. Our Motor Lodge is 300 yards from the main hotel/casino/restaurant complex. Our RV Park sits between the main complex and the Motor Lodge. While we have made many upgrades to our Motor Lodge in recent years, there are still some more we need to make. Thanks for mentioning the refrigerator and safe. All of our... More

My family and I stayed at CVI overnight for a wedding reception. The casino, restaurant, and reception area were clean and well maintained. The rooms really need some work... Cracked tile in the bathroom, towels were so old that one actually ripped when I was drying off, and the toilet had not been cleaned when I lifted the seat. Beds... More

I'm sorry to hear there were some issues with your stay. I'm particularly upset about the bath towels and toilet cleaning because this is something we normally do really well. But, I need to know when we failed to meet expectations. We do spend $40,000 a year on new linens and towels to keep them new and fresh, so that... More

Carson Valley Inn has the main hotel & casino, separated from the motor lodge by a parking lot. They are part of the same facility and both or nice, but the motor lodge rooms are a little less expensive and quieter. A two-story building, motel style, with free parking and reliable WIFI. There is a gas station and mini market... More

Thank you for your nice review and noticing that we have continued to upgrade the Motor Lodge. We do try to continually improve our property and recently we installed new drapes and carpet at the Motor Lodge. The Motor Lodge also has the same beds, bedding, towels and amenities as our main hotel. This is our more affordable alternative, but... More

Everything is nice about this facility. good rooms, clean, nice restaurants on the facility, assume the casino is nice. not a gambler. It is just in some places it looks a little faded or a little torn. Went with the lowest price which put my room a couple hundred yards from the main facility. I would have paid the difference...

We stayed at the CVI for two nights and were very pleased. The rooms were very clean and very comfortable (one was handicapped). The housekeeping crew was friendly, effective and accommodating. Good 24/7 restaurant and of course the casino is readily available. Little more expensive but worth it.
