I've been going to the CVI since it was first built back in the 80's, mostly just for a night out of gambling when I would come to visit my parents who had a place in neighboring Gardnerville. I only had the opportunity to stay there recently and was amazed by how enjoyable it was. My wife and our 9...

After a glorious week in Joshua Tree NP, we were making our way back to Oregon and this is where we stopped for the night. We had stayed here quite a few years ago and enjoyed it and wondered if the hotel would still be nice or if it had gotten "tired" over the years. What a positive surprise when...

Stayed two nights at the Carson Valley Inn. The room was spacious, and very clean. I checked in very late due to weather and the staff was accommodating and nice. Although it did not have a free breakfast like major chains, Carson Valley Inn provides a great basic room.

We decided to stop over in NV to get provisions and see Virginia City before going to Mammoth. Selected this off the grid property and we're glad we did. It is partially like a step back in time, holiday decor was campy in a nostalgic and cared for way. We did NOT stay in main hotel and we're glad we...

I'm not a gambler so I'm not much for staying in casinos--the smoke, the transient "feel" of the environment, the impersonal nature of employees. It's just not my thing.
