At $129 for a pretty spacious suite, we did not feel this to be a bad deal. It is the newest (3 years old) and nicest hotel in the Carson Valley. The staff was great and the whole place was immaculate. Next time we are in the area, we will book there for sure.

Just got back from a three day trip ATVing east of Minden, and we enjoyed staying at this HI Express. It is by far the best HI property I've experienced, a little gem in a nice little eastern sierra town. They offer all the amenities of a larger hotel (breakfast buffet, business & fitness center, etc.) at a lower cost. This hotel was super clean; the rooms were modern, bright, & had plenty of outlets for our electrical devices. I was impressed with all the little extras provided - coffee & cookies available in the lobby, goody bags handed out at check in, both firm & soft pillows on the bed, blackout curtains. Thanks for taking such great care of us, & we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Walls are a bit thin, so avoid rooms near elevator. Due to construction, east facing rooms may be qu...

We went to Minden to visit some family and we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. Wow very nice hotel still looks very new. Nice staff and also has a nice gym. My boys really liked the pool. This place is also very clean will be back in November.

We stayed here for 3 nights in August 2012. Our extended family had booked 5 rooms while attending a wedding in the area. Service and staff were excellent. The only reason I did not rate the hotel excellent was the entrance. The only entrance is on the 395 with just a small sign. After driving for 10 hours it was frustrating to see the hotel but not find the entrance. Once we arrived, we were more than pleased. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed two nights for a soccer tournament in Carson City. The hotel is fairly new ( 3 years?). Check-in was quick. The room was very clean and the beds comfortable. The breakfast buffet was very good, and ample selections available.

The location is good as there is a Subway Sandwich shop and an AM/PM gas station close by. The price was a bit steep for Minden ($125/night), but I'd stay there again.

We stayed here 24th-27th July 2012 during a 3 month motorcycle road trip. An efficient check in by a surly unfriendly receptionist and then off to the room. Well presented and spotlessly clean with coffee making facilities, and a decent size too. The breakfast was ok, Holiday Inn continental buffet, this one seemed a little better than others although they were very punctual, turning the lights off in the dining area while we were still eating breakfast. I had an issue with some equipment and needed to do some repairs when I asked the front desk if there was any workshop areas I got talking with Debbie (I think I got that right) the general manager, she allowed me to do repairs in front of the hotel, even lending me a table from her office, that's customer service. There are limited choices for eating in the area within walking distance, but the couple we used were pretty good.
The hotel is clean throughout with mostly friendly staff, ( a couple were a little over zealous at times) and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. A good stay.

This hotel looks to be fairly new. The girl at check in was a bit abrupt and not overly welcoming but the other staff were very pleasant and friendly. We did not try out the pool or hot tub but it did look clean and inviting. The equipment in the fitness centre is a bit limited due to the small size of the room. There is coffee, tea, hot chocolate available in the lobby throughout the day which is good. Check out the free cookies which appear around 5 o'clock in the afternoon, be quick, they go like hot cakes(literally). The room was typical holiday inn express, clean, tidy, comfortable bed with choice of firm or soft pillows. Our room did not have a bath tub but had a large walk in shower, don't know if this applies to all room. The breakfast, again is the now familiar holiday inn selection of cereals, eggs, bacon, biscuits & gravy, pancakes, toast etc and the seating area is plentiful.
Be cautious that the address is given as being on CR88 but there is no access, the actual entrance is off highway 395. Room rate was very reasonable and there are a selection of restaurants within walking distance.
