Love this place, we are from Southern California and it's a 4 to 4 1/2 hour drive for us, but it's a GREAT PLACE for several days getaway. There's the Casino, which has an abundance of machines to try your luck at, plus tables. There's Katie's for casual dining and the best of best breakfast choices and lunch choices, or...

I have been here many times and love the renovations. We just stayed here and were disappointed with the service of 2 bartenders. One was at the bar at CV Steak and the other in the lounge. The one in the lounge was rude and the one at CV Steak said we would have to pay for our drinks. When...

Our first time at the CVI and it won't be our last. This is a great find in the Carson Valley. The staff was so helpful and courteous from checkin to checkout. We stayed for two nights but would have stayed longer if not for having to get back home for family plans. We have stayed in a variety of...

We spent three nights there and it was great. The hotel looks as if it belongs in the High Sierras with the woodsy look and feel. Ample free parking or valet service.Check in was no problem, staff extremely friendly. Rooms large and bathroom's very spacious and clean.

I stayed two nights in the hotel portion of the Carson Valley Inn. We were told on arrival that the first floor were smoking rooms but second and third floors were the non smoking rooms.

We upgraded to a suite because there were four of us. It was awesome, beautiful room, full living room, bar area and large bedroom area. The restaurants had great food and home made pastries. Didn't swim but have nice indoor pool and fitness center, also two hot tubs.

We attended a dinner in Minden so decided to spend the night. Made reservation and chose the Motorlodge section since it was about $30 less than the main bldg. The exterior and interior were very nice. The room was clean and spacious, but I couldn't handle the smell of the new carpet pad, a noxious rubbery smell. I wanted to...

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...
