“Ok for the Money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

Room was clean, beds and pillows comfortable, sheets, pillow cases and towels were changed daily, staff helpful and friendly. These are some of the good points.

Rooms are old and in desperate need of upgrade. Carpet had old gum embedded in the aisle from door to bathroom. Light fixture over chair was a bare bulb, no shade. Black out drapes had to be 20 years old as they were so thin they let the light leak through anyway.

Shuttle van was available, when we inquired about a ride 2 miles down the street we were told at check in there was a $5.00 charge for use of shuttle. When we called for a ride later a different desk clerk said it was a $10.00 charge, when we said the other clerk earlier stated it was $5, we were told the other clears didn't know what they were talking about.

Hotel is right across the street from Carson Station Casino, pretty good coffee shop/restaurant there. There is a lot in walking distance, food wise, as well as the nugget, and state government buildings. A great little saloon next door "Tinders" for a nightcap.

Ok to stay here if you don't expect a lot and just need a place to sleep for a descent price.

I'm the kind of gal who likes a bargain. I would really enjoy staying at upscale hotels but I am too practical to spend all my money on something that I don't get to keep. If a hotel is clean and safe and comfortable and reasonably priced, I'm in. This hotel fit the bill. It's not fancy but it did have a microwave and fridge in the room. I recommend Red's 395 Grill which is a five minute walk from the hotel.

I have stayed at this location twice before and I have always found it 'ok'. This time the only redeeming factor was the price. The beds were hard. The security was questionable as the front desk attendant rarely turned around to see who was entering the building when I returned (often late at night). Whilst the continental breakfast was free, we were made to feel uncomfortable by the attendant, who quite literally threw a plate of food onto the table in front of us. A stark contrast to the service I have received everywhere else in the USA and sufficiently unpleasant to make me cancel a return visit the following week.

Room Tip: Stay across the street at the Wyndham Carson Station. Better beds, friendlier staff and a great litt...

Decent hotel with friendly front desk service, ok breakfast and quite nice rooms, with good quality beds and a bath tub. The room was clean and I'd say you get your money's worth. Apart from that very average on all fronts, but never below standard. Remember that it can get cold out here at night, preventive heating of the rooms (which have a high ceiling) may be necessary if you don't want to get out in the middle of the night. There's a nice pub up the same street for good food and drinks.

I couldn't believe how cheap rooms were there. Mine would have worked out at $55 a night or so if I had not booked an airfare/hotel package ($606.00).

My room had central heating, two king beds (actually the cheapest available), free wi-fi and a large desk, TV and DVD.

It was so hot when I first arrived, that I turned the central heating down.

They do not have lunch or dinning services, but a complimentary breakfast and coffee bar.

I used Red bucks vouchers for some of my meals out, but mostly didn't need them.


They are the only hotel so I am told that offers direct shuttle service to and from the airport, that is from Carson City. Take fares one way can cost between $$55-65 and you have to order a taxi from the hotel otherwise.

Though services were not luxury I would rate them as very good value for money.

There is car park round the back near their conference center, so plenty of room for parking and you are almost opposite the Carson City Station Casino.

Well worth it if you are on a budget, as I was. And very nice staff.

Room Tip: Take a Room away from the street. And you need a car to get about.

Did not like the idea of paying the same price as in San Francisco, so tried it. Not too bad. Reasonably clean. Check in was pretty easy. Location is fine.

Several gripes. 1. the place is dated, even though it has seen some upgrade lately. 2. the bathtub is squeaky. 3. the bedding looks dated and well used. 4. breakfast is rather limited in choice. 5. exercise facility is not in the main building and requires a special access key.

So in the end, it is a decent choice. It is perhaps above average in Carson City. Different from many local hotels, this hotel has no casinos and does not allow smoking.

I've stayed here on 2 occasions. It's central to everything I needed in Carson.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
They moved me from a ground floor room (as I like to sleep with the window open), to a second floor room, with no problems.
The lady on the front desk, helped me out when I needed info off a website, and she looked it up for me.
Breakfast is basic, but fine.
As a single female traveller I felt perfectly safe there.

Room Tip: Preferred to not be on the ground floor, as if sleeping with window open, didn't feel too safe.
