Went for a concert and the Casino and the concert venue were easy walking distance from the lodge. Besides the casino, there are plenty of food choices. Not sure why anyone would come to Minden Nevada. One thing I do know is that everyone seemed friendly and happy to help.

Room was excellent and very clean and spacious. The Motor Lodge rooms are always well maintained. Checkin is in the Casino and is a long walk from the Motor Lodge, but it is easy to get to and checkin was quick and painless. I always like staying here.

The motor lodge was further away than described from the actual Carson Valley Inn. Additionally, we requested our room to be serviced around 9 am, and when we returned that afternoon around 1pm the room still had yet to be serviced. I requested again and finally around 230 pm a staff stopped by. At that point we had to get ready for an event, asked for fresh towels and asked them to return after 330pm. When we returned from our event our room was finally serviced. The staff at the actual Inn where you check in were very nice and the rooms are way nicer.

Great value, great staff

Pros: Clean updated rooms with comfortable beds and walls well insulated to keep it quiet.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Tahoe is the most beautiful setting with tons of activities
Great jumping off point for all things Tahoe but at a better price than the other side of the "hill".

This remains my go-to hotel when traveling to SLT

Pros: Great customer service
Cons: Sometimes the daily specials at Katie's can be more about quantity over quality and CV Steak, while great, is very pricey. $22 for pasta ?
Location: It's Tahoe! Nuff said!
CVI has had many changes since my family first started coming here almost 30 years ago but the quality of the service has always been first rate. Any hotel can have a great number of attractive amenities but without consistently great customer service you are not going to cut it, CVI has never disappointed me and I have been a guest at least a dozen times
