The Carson Valley in extremely great in every sense of the word. The best part of visiting here is the food service for sure! You have many choices and many prices on the spectrum. The best for service and ambiance when you want to go "upscale" or for a "special" night, is CV Steak. Our wait staff was Kylie and...

Thank you very much for your kind words. CV Steak has proven to be one of those great value restaurants. You get the upper scale experience without the big bill at the end. Did you see the size of those baked potatoes!! I still have never seen anything like it anywhere else. Anyway, we will forward your comments to Kylie...

I have stayed at the CVI for over 25 years. My wife and I just returned from staying there for six nights. My wife said it was one of the best vacation ever.

Wow! Those are great comments. Thank you so much for your kind words. One of our advantages over some of the bigger casinos in Reno and at the Lake is that we are not so big that you become a number to us. We want our guests to have a personal experience. Admittedly we are not perfect, but that is...

Hello. Thank you for your comments. We're glad you've become a loyal guest. There is something others can learn from this review. Even when we are sold out rooms can become available at the last moment because of early check-outs and last minute cancellations. We are a casino and as one of our gaming customers you receive some attractive offers...

This is the third time we've stayed here, and is always clean and adequate. Mattress is perfect for hubby which is a plus. We stay on the other side, the motel side, and I'm not sure about the casino rooms, but there is no fridge or microwave. But, the room is not the reason we visited Minden.

Thank you for your comments. We also received your guest comment card so we did follow up on the issues with your room in the hotel. It seems our housekeeper cleaned your room as a "stayover" as she did not properly read her paperwork. The room was not cleaned for a new guest. There is no excuse for the cobweb...

Stayed in the lodge part of this property (not in the casino hotel). The room is dated looking, but had a new flat screen TV and a small refrigerator which was nice.
