Very nice and friendly place. The rooms and accommodations were perfect for what we needed. I had to have surgery on the 31st and had booked the room for the night of the 30th only. We needed to stay another night which was no problem for the hotel staff. The cleanliness of the Carson Valley Inn is by far the...

I stayed two, two night stays at the CVI in the past month and the place is just solid. It's not the Venetian but for the price it is quite nice. Overall the place is in good shape although it is an older hotel/casino. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The casino is...

Thank you for your very nice review. We do try hard to be a place where our guests feel comfortable and at home. All the little things you mentioned are a part of this. CV Steak is one of the best price values for a steakhouse you will find anywhere. I personally love the Calimari and the lamb. The Carson...

I was in town for a wedding, this was the best place to stay. Good location. Reasonably clean. Room's window looked into an air conditioning unit and wall. Very smoky in the common areas. A bit overpriced for what you get.

Thank you for your comments. We hope you choose to come back and see us. We are always concerned about the smoke. The fact is that we have a significant casino and when we are really busy as we were when you were here there may be some smoke. We do have an air filtration system which brings in fresh...

Even though the hotel was very busy (they were having a concert that night) the check-in process was smooth and the bell captain helpful and nice. The room was quite large and well-appointed. We'd been in the room about 30 minutes when we got a call from the front desk, asking if we were "that couple on the Harley trike."...

What an absolute nightmare. Never, ever again will we deal with Carson Valley Inn. My sister got married in Genoa on 08/14/16 and we had booked collectively 10 rooms with this casino.

We truly apologize that we couldn't accommodate your requests for early check-in before the check-in time of 3 pm and that we could not move the guest's "requested" smoking king through an on-line travel agent to a non-smoking king at the last moment. If you read our many excellent reviews you will see how accommodating we try to be with...

We are sorry you were so disappointed with us. It is really important to be very careful when booking a room through an on-line travel agent. It can be very easy to make a mistake like booking a smoking room vs a non-smoking room. If we had not been sold out we would have gladly moved your room to a...

Even though the Motor Lodge is separate from the hotel and casino, it is a mere short walk away from the main building, is quiet, comfortable, well maintained, and has ample parking. The ac was a welcome relief to the 100 degree outdoor temperatures endured while visiting the Carson Valley.

Thank you for your nice comments regarding our Motor Lodge. It is a more affordable alternative to our main hotel, but the bedding, towels, beds and amenities are the same as the main hotel.
