We pulled into this hotel pretty late but they still had rooms available. We opted to stay in the lodge which is in a separate building from the hotel and casino and priced a little lower. The room was pretty basic, but nice and clean. We couldn't get the wifi in our room to work and couldn't get any help...

Dear Guest: Thank you for your review. We followed up quickly on this today and found out that our Internet Services provider recently initiated an ad campaign without our knowledge. It becomes an income source for our provider to run these ads. These ads were of the pop up variety that quickly become irritating. Please be assured that they most...

We stayed at the Carson Valley Inn while attending a local event. Our room was very clean and spacious. The staff was efficient and friendly. They have very nice amenities including restaurants, a pool, hot tub, gas station, conference rooms and a casino. We enjoyed the casino and the Inn was very generous with their casino comps. The Inn is...

We just needed a night away, son and daughter-in-law live in the area. Room was clean, bed comfortable, towels nice and thick, toilet flushing was loud as were people coming to their rooms late. We stayed at the Motor Lodge, ate at Katies (which is always good, ask for Carmen) and will recommend it to anyone needed to get away...

We were doing some skiing at Tahoe, and didn't realize the location was a bit too far. The map shows it's about 30 minutes drive, but that drive goes through the mountains and doing it in the dark, in snow and ice, during a storm - is simply not a great experience. If you're going to Tahoe in the winter,...

The Carson Valley Inn is located down the hill from Lake Tahoe in Minden, NV. They feature a hotel, casino, coffee shop, steakhouse, cafe, RV park and gas station & store. We find it convenient to stay here a night before heading up to Lake Tahoe. The Inn is modern but reminiscent of an Old West hotel. The staff is...

Stayed in the Motor Lodge, which is separate from the Casino and Main Hotel. The rooms appear to have been upgraded, and were very nice. Spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and area quiet; though people coming in late, did make noise. Not the fault of the hotel. The price was reasonable. A coffee maker, hair dryer, and iron/ironing...

Booked through Expedia, was trying to stay at the inn, but because they chose rooms, we were given room at their motor lodge. Had to sigh a form saying wouldn't smoke in room, but was given a room that had ash tray, matches and smelled like smoke. Noticed cigerate burns in chair and carpet. Carpet stained and had cigerate burns....

This was our first stay at the CVI and chose to stay at the motor lodge section since we were visiting family and only needed the room for sleep. Rooms here are more affordable than other options for this hotel. The motor lodge is not connected to the actual Casino and Hotel, so you must check in there, then drive...

We were extremely disappointed with our stay here. To start with, the receptionist at the front desk was very rude. She did not seem to think or care that she is in the hospitality industry. We checked in past 3:30PM. She announced to us that our room was not ready, that she was doing all she could and refused to...

Dear Guest: Thank you for making us aware of your guest experience. I'm not going to give you a long explanation here. It sounds like we did a poor job of handling your check-in all the way around. For that please accept our sincere apology. I assure you that this is not the normal service our guests experience. I would...
