“RV Park Review”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

This is more about the RV Park at the CVI. We stayed here the past 30 days because we were visiting family in Carson. This place is awesome, what really sold us was the enclosed dog area. Most places have nothing so we were impresssed. We ate at the CV Steak House and Katies often and the food in both places were very good. The Pork at CV Steakhouse (AWESOME). The lady who sets you up the the RV park is Liz ( I Think), anyway she did everything she could over the phone to assist me prior to coming. The park is very well kept and trash emptied often. So overall, I would highly recommend this place.

My wife liked the large indoor pool area and the convenience to the Casino. We were in one of the renovated rooms in the main hotel on the first floor which is the casino level. Our room was nice with an upgraded bath and comfortable bed. There was a mini-fridge but no micro wave. My wife said that the pool temp was warm and inviting and there were two hot tubs with nice mountain views. There is also a small fitness center in the same area. All of this is on the second floor.

This is an older wood construction property so you do hear people walking in the halls and above you. If you want a quiet room ask for the third floor at the end of the hall, but be prepared for a long walk that way.

I thought that the halls and rooms were rather dark, this is made worse by their choice of darker colors for the carpets and furniture. The property is not laid out very well, with a central stairwell and two small elevators. The hotel check in desk is in the basement level as is the main hotel entrance, so there is a lot of up and down just to get around and in and out of the building.

We ate at the Cafe and the service and food was good and reasonably priced.

Casino is nice, but smaller. Staff is friendly and free drinks are plentiful. One very nice thing about staying on property is that there are no concerns over drinking and then driving back to a different hotel. You can have an extra drink and be safe.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room ask for the third floor at the end of the hall, but it will then be a long...

After a long work week we decided to head to CVI to spend a night or two relaxing in the hot tub and playing a little in the casino when on the way there our vehicle broke down in Wellington NV; a quick change of plans was not too big of a deal and our rig was going to be fixed by that Friday. Low and behold the Coho fire broke out and closed highway 395 therefore the parts didn't get to the shop so there we were stuck; this time until Monday. The hotel was very busy so after a few calls to some friends (thanks again, you know who you are) we were able to keep the room we were already in even though the hotel was booked through the weekend. The rooms are freshly re-decorated, the bed was comfy and housekeeping did a fine job. We also enjoyed the food at Katie's and the live music was a treat! There were so many things to do while we enjoyed our extended stay like the "Wine Walk" (third Thursday of the month during the summer); some really cool shops; and more fabulous food at the local Basque restaurants. We have been going to CVI for at least 20 years and hopefully will continue to go for another 20!

This is an excellant "get Away", service, food, lodging all excellant. The Steak House is wonderful, excellant food, Ask for Clayton to serve you, you will see what what excellant service is about.
Nancy, the supervisor in Katties, is a true asset to the Inn, a wonderful personable person.
Reno Casinos should take "lessons" from this establishment.

Room Tip: All Rooms are super.

We have stayed there before and will stay there again. Hotel staff at check in were more than helpful and did everything to make our arrival pleasent. The rooms have been redecorated were very clean and look great, the bed was very confortable. We only ate at the coffee shop at the hotel which had a large menue to go with the large portions at affordable prices. There are a number of golf courses with in a 20 min. drive to statisfy any golfer. Virginia City only a 20 min.drive, a must if your a first time visitor to this area. Self parking with plenty spaces to be had, valet parking if desired. RV park next to hotel maybe a 100 yard walk to the Inn. If you enjoy playing casino games and want a good place to stay consider Carson Valley Inn.

Room Tip: All rooms are about the same.

For the pass 10 years my family and I have been traveling to the Gardnerville, Minden area to visit my parents who have retired there. This was the first time that I have stayed at the Carson Valley Inn, thanks to Matt Carter who help make this arrangement possible. The hotel is very clean, rooms have been fully remodeled and updated. Staff in the hotel and casino were excellent, we really have a great time in the bar/lounge area. If passing through Minden, I highly recommend it to stop in and check it out.

Room Tip: Second floor is where the pool and spa is located. Non-smoking rooms are far enough away from Casino...

We just returned from a 2 night stay. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the property. The room was relatively large, clean and comfortable and the Bed was comfortable. The casino area was well maintained and staffed. The Cafe food was great. The service was good as well. We had a great experience at the Steak House. I enjoyed one of the finest Ribeye steaks I have had in quite some time. My wife's Fillet was tender and flavorful. Prices were reasonable for the quality and service was very good. I would highly recommend all aspects of the Carson Valley Inn.
