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. But I had a three-day event in mid-September in Minden and the Carson Valley Inn was recommended to me. Am I glad I followed that recommendation! This is not your typical... More

I made reservations for myself, my brother, his wife and their adult daughter-3 rooms total.

For some unknown reason, the Carson Valley Inn thought we deserved a huge suite! We did not complain and enjoyed every minute of our stay there. I highly recommend it. Steak house is great too. We have eaten there both last year and again this year. Delightful.

We have visited several times and we enjoy the rooms and found them quiet, clean and the beds very comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the indoor heated pool and two jacuzzi spas conveniently located inside the hotel. The pool is large, clean, warm and just right for young ones and adults to enjoy and spread out. Stacks of pool towels are... More

I went with my girlfriend and we enjoyed fish and chips and pot pie. Both meals were well prepared and a good value. The dinner rolls were very good and we enjoyed the service. We can always depend on a good meal here.

Stayed here for two nights to attend a friend's wedding. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. I really liked that the windows fully opened to let in fresh air.
