“Golf Trip success”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Group of 16 just concluded stay and play package with CVI. Great people, great accommodations, great price. Huge plug for Greg Enholm, if anyone is planning a golf trip for a group to the area get in touch with Greg. Greg quarterbacked arrangements for our group all weekend. We kicked things off with a great Prime Rib Dinner at the CV Steakhouse. The service was outstanding, the private room was awesome, the Prime Rib was average. We utilized a CVI shuttle to transport the group to and from the golf course each day. Mike was our driver and he was great and always on time. The casino is small but offered everything we needed. CVI was a great spot for our group and I'm sure it will be a great spot for yours as well!

Stayed for just one night in August this year on our way to Yosemite. We were pleasantly surprised by the room and the amenities. Rooms were a good size and well appointed. Staff on reception were very helpful. Did not eat here at all so can't say anything about the food. However, the pool was very pleasant. Good value for money and would definitely stay here again.

I have stayed at the CVI many times over the years. They recently remodeled most of the rooms which is a big improvement. The coffee shop always has some great dinnig specials to get the locals in the casino. Take advantage of the deals. I have also dined at the steak house about a dozen times, and found it to be very good with a pretty good wine list. I really like the little coffee place- Jobs. They have some nice coffee selections and food which is great in the morning. The casino is small, but has most everything you need. Caution- they shut down the table games when it gets slow.

The remodeled rooms are very nice and those rooms have added a coffee maker. Ask for a remodeled room over the standard room. I have also stayed in a couple of different suites, and they are super nice and roomy.

If you play in the casino, there is a good chance they may send you room/dining offers in the mail. Be sure to sign up to get a slot card.

Room Tip: Ask for a remodeled room.

We were traveling through the area and decided to take a chance on this property. It is owned by the casino, and we registered at the casino hotel desk. The Motor Lodge is just down the block from the casino, in a completely remodeled building. The room was clean and quiet, and reasonably priced. We ate breakfast in the casino restaurant (not included in the room, but not expensive). The ham steak was too big for one person. We would recommend this to anyone traveling through the area.

Kind of a folksy type place. Reasonably priced rooms, casino and dining places. Kathies is good as is CV Steak. Rooms are good quality. They have a hotel, motor lodge and RV park. Have patience when try the wifi connections. The Wifi service leaves a lot to be desired. Connections are always failing making live difficult. Relax and have fun.

We travel up to south lake tahoe usually once or twice a year & we usually work in a day or two to stay at the carson valley inn.

Last trip up there, we stayed in a wonderful suite.

The room rivaled any suite in any 4 star hotel that we've been to; even better than some that I've paid more for.

The bed and pillows were soft and plush. The linens were high-quality. The over-sized jacuzzi tub was wonderful and there was even a steam shower.

We loved the indoor pool and the steak house was pretty good too.

The town itself isn't very big (nothing like vegas or reno), so we usually only stay a day or two here but it is a delightful stop that we always try to make.

We spent 2 nights here while fishing in the Sierras near Markleeville CA about 30 min away. Room was clean and quiet for our midweek stay. The coffee shop, Katies, in the attached casino was a great value ( $5.99 for huge ham steak and eggs breakfast served all day) good quality food for casual eating late lunches, late dinners after our outdoor expeditions.
