We arrived at the hotel, and were told that we would be staying at their Motor Lodge which is about a block away. I had booked through the Delta Airlines website and nowhere did it say this. We did not even know there was another part of the hotel. We asked if we could be transferred to the main hotel and were told they did not have anything available for our stay. I can understand that since it was last minute that we asked. The front desk clerk told us that the motorlodge had been theough a upgrade and that it was beautiful inside. When we entered (and by the way if you have a hard time walking ask for a ground floor unit as there is no elevator) it really looked like nothing had been done to the room since the 80's. I am not saying it was old or dirty but if it had been through an upgrade I would have expected more. Another thing I could not understand as since there are 2 beds in the room, why was there only 1 extra blanket in the closet, than seemed odd to me.
On the whole it was just an ok experience to us, and if I had known they just built a brand new Holiday Inn Express down the street and we would have stayed there instead.

Room Tip: If you are staying in the motorlodge portion of the hotel, and you have any type of walking disabili...

Carson Valley Inn continues to get better and better. We went there for Cinco de Mayo 2014. As always, nice people, nice restaurants, and nice rooms. They also are bringing in some name bands this summer and has an outdoor area for concerts. All these changes continue to make Carson Valley Inn an "even better" place each time we go.

We stayed in the Motor Lodge building. Very quiet. Clean & convenient. Next to the convenience store & gas station. Short walk to the main building for breakfast. Stayed 3 nights. Would stay again. Only complaint was a noisy heater. Staff was always friendly, smiled, said hello or good morning.

Room Tip: Our room near the street was quiet enough. Rooms further back would be even quieter.

I stayed here on a weekend and throughout most of a business week. The inn was extremely quiet. The rooms were well appointed with ample bedding and furniture. Easy check in and out. All of the employees I came in contact with were super polite and helpful. Would certainly stay here again.

on biz weekend, reserved motor lodge room, Fri pm asked if any rms in main hotel, Travis P at front desk very nice got us in nice rm on 3rd floor. very nice, clean, overlooking casino roof HVAC units, but ok on noise; until neighbors came in drunk, loud from 1030 - 1230; finally called security, responded quickly but told loud drunk ppl that next door had complained, so we were a little anxious for next 2hrs as noise didn't subside, but afraid to call again for retaliation; noisy drunks finally left at 230am. We got to sleep about 3am. Told front desk at checkout, they were very apologetic and called Sec. Manager Phil, who was very compassionate and apologetic for actions by night sec. dude. I didn't ask for anything, just wanted them to better train their staff not to rat out guest who complain then leave. It all worked out, Phil and mgmt comped our room and all front desk staff very nice about whole deal. Have stayed here for same event many years, and will again. Great place and very guest oriented. Thank you CVI!

Room Tip: 3rd floor less noisy, but get on W wing not over casino or near roof HVAC system on south side of ha...

I was in Minden again for another family visit. This place is consistently a great value. As I have mentioned in previous reviews, upgrade to a suite (expect for the parlor suite) and you will not be disappointed. Service, food, and gaming are always good. You gotta try the Burger at CV Steak, awesome!

Katie's is a great place for late night snack and breakfast. Several bars with good (but not great) beer selection.

This is the place to stay when in Minden/Gardnerville.

We found an incredible price for the Motor Lodge on the Internet two weeks before Christmas. It was a nice room with very comfortable beds. It was convenient to shopping, restaurants and our daughter's home. Since we had traveled so far to get there, the discount price was very welcome.

Room Tip: Check the internet daily for great prices.
