Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RK12 Good Value
We had a funeral to attend and this was the closest place to stay for the services. We booked a 2 queen bed suite which was good. Room was clean and the sofa gave us a little more room to move around in.
The breakfast was decent, nothing spectacular but better than a continental breakfast. They had pancakes, eggs, sausage, bacon, cereal, toast and juice. It was clean and not crowded.
The room itself was good. Pillows were kind of hard, but the mattress was comfortable. The TV was a little small for the room. I think it was 27 inches or so, but good picture and good selection of channels. This place is a great value for the location. If we come back we will definitely stay here. Reservations are hard to get here because it's the only decent place in the area to stay at.

I stayed in this hotel during my recent visit to Lake. I preffered this hotel because it was much cheaper and 30 min drive from lake.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jede3201 Breakfast wasn't good but everything else was
Very nice facility overall. Good beds and amenities. My only complaint was about the breakfast and the pricing. Breakfast was awful. Food was ice cold still and we could not eat it. We had to go out and buy breakfast after we were expecting to eat at the hotel. The variety was good though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sashiko Spotless and most well thought breakfast
In addition to a beautiful view of the Eastern Sierras the stay at your Holiday Inn was perfect. It felt brand new. The room was clean, the bathroom fabulous. In all the many breakfasts we have had in hotels and motels, yours was by far, the best. Well laid out, great choices, tidy and the person in charge was on it. Well done.

This place pretty much has everything you might need for a quick overnight stay.
The best thing is the room and bathroom appeared clean and better than most hotels.

Nicer and newer hotel than the one at South Lake Tahoe I stayed the same week, and it is at a more affordable price. Minden is a nice little town. The desk clerk was nice and easily changed my reservation when I called to see if I could check in a day early.

We were traveling between two areas and stopped here in between the lengthy distances. It was comfortable, clean, and very friendly staff. The hotel was new and had little landscape around it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by long_straight Comfortable Bed, and Helpful Staff
Comfortable Bed, quiet, and rather new. I hope they maintain at the present level. Had a foot stomper above us, maybe more installation between floors. Staff was very helpful, except they need to leave the cookies out later. They are a nice late night snack.
Will stay again next trip to area.

Close to son and family. Clean hotel. Would stay here again when I make next visit. Since I did not use the hotel much during the day, I don't have many specific comments. I was happy to use IHG reward points for the stay. The staff was friendly and responsive.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ShellMom Great beds, breakfast and pool with one drawback
I stayed at this hotel with my family. We loved the variety of breakfast choices, the homemade cookies in the evening and the comfortable beds and pillows. The towels were also great and the pool and hot tub were fun. The one drawback was that our A/C unit never shut off. It ran constantly. You could turn it off completely but then there was no air. Set on auto, it never shut off when reaching it's set temperature. I woke up with a sore throat every day.

I recently stayed at this hotel for a four day visit. I was there to participate in a bike ride that was going on near this location. Many other people were also participating in this bike ride which started early in the morning. This hotel put on a special breakfast that started at 3:30 in the morning to help the riders, this is going above and beyond and was much appreciated by the riders. The stay was very pleasant and all the staff was helpful. I would recommend this hotel to other people.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bob77777777 Not Recommended
Over priced with a pay in advance, no refunds cancellation policy.
Disgusting food service with poor food handling procedures and an awful egg product. We ate elsewhere.
Room not fully cleaned and noisy at night with outside light shining under the door and noisy people coming and going.
Over all, very poor value for the cost of the room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sam1448 Good amenities at an affordable price
We loved the hotel and the guest room. The mattresses and pillows are good but not really great. The public spaces were not as well kept as other Holiday Inn express hotels. Such as, there could be more indoor plants. The pool has a boring design and outlook. The internet was really slow and we could hardly upload any pictures of our visit to Lake Tahoe.

I had a very short vacation in Lake Tahoe. The hotel is just 15-20 mins drive. I stayed here for just a night and I felt so relaxed; Room service and check-in service was excellent. Will definitely prefer this hotel every time come by Minden.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ptdc4 Clean and comfortable
Stayed at the Minden hotel for a night while visiting the Tahoe area. The drive over the mountain to Tahoe was reasonable, and the hotel did not require the 2 night minimum on the weekends like the Tahoe Holiday Inn Express did. We had a nice stay with clean and tidy accommodations.

This is the second time we stayed here . The room was very clean and we had a view of the mountains. Front desk staff were very nice and gave us a late check out time . Our son really enjoyed the pool and cookies in the afternoon . We will be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by skgiro One of nicest HI Express Hotels I have stayed at
HI Express is my go-to hotel for business travel, so I chose this one in Minden for a family vacation. This one had more amenities (pool, laundry) and a bigger lobby/dining area than most of the other ones I have stayed at. Clean, affordable, and one of the best HI Express stays I have ever had. A shout-out to Rosa at the front desk for exceptional customer service.

We had to wait for our car to be repaired. Our check-out was extended then the hotel staff was very gracious by storing our luggage and allowing us to use the lobby as long as we needed it. We were there for 4 hours. Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great Location, Excellent Customer Service
Few good and bad things! First to start with the bad things:
1. Initially they said I could book my hotel with my IHG points, the online customer service who was helping me book this was lousy and by the time we reached to submit the reservation ( after 45 mins online chat) the hotel options changed and I couldnt book the entire stay with points and had to shell out $40 a night.
2. I have seen better holiday inn interms of ambience
3. Didn't have the variety at breakfast I expected like no oat meal, pan cake machine was broken the 2nd day etc.
Now the Good Things
1. I entered the hotel mid night after a drive from San Francisco late evening. I was given an upgrade the first time I was asked. The lady at the customer service was very nice to check if rooms were available for upgrade at that late in the night and upgraded me.
2. Very close to the mountains and the view was awesome from the room.
3. Rooms are very spacious, like someone said there was no room to hang their clothes, don't think that was right. It was confusing but the closet was behind the mirror into the wall.
4. There is a small casino like less than a mile away from the hotel, so it was fun. The hotel had a bakery which sells cakes, so I kinda bought a small cake to celebrate my wife's birthday there.
All in all, excellent customer service, decent rooms and food at the price I paid makes it a great deal. I would definitely recommend someone to stay here who doesn't want to pay a fortune to stay close to South Tahoe.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 No closet?!?
What? At hotel room (room 224) with NO closet and NO clothes hangers, nor any place to hang anything from a suitcase? We've never before had any thing like this in all our travels. There are dresser drawers, but no way to hang any clothing items in any part of the room...save for a small towel hook on the inside of the bathroom door---if you bring a hanger with you. Unusual, to say the least. The room fine, the bed fine, the price fine, the staff fine... but all this was overshadowed by the bewildering fact that there is no closet, no clothes rack, no hangers--a true question mark for the room design of some Holiday Inn Express locations.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FlashJT Always Spams My Mailbox After Staying
Every time I stay at this property I get an e-mail from them. I do not want this e-mail, and there is no way to unsubscribe from getting this e-mail. At the bottom of the message it simply states "This is a one-time email sent as a result of your recent stay at Holiday Inn Express MINDEN. You have not been subscribed to any lists." I don't care if it's a one time e-mail or not. I don't want it. Period.

Staff was pleasant an very efficient at arrival. Was recognized for my club member and got my water and dry bars.
Hotel is newer, so rooms and facilities are very nice. The heater fan is quiet and turned off when the temp. was reached. Towels in bath seems new and were large.
Breakfast as expected, eggs and meat were hot, rolls nice and warm.
Overall a great stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doug A. A very pleasant surprise
After staying at the South Lake Tahoe Holiday Inn Express before (also a pleasant experience!) we were dissappointed that they were full and we would have to drive 'all the way' to Minden. BUT what a great experience it turned out to be. The drive is an easy 30 minutes from the California main lodge of Heavenly (and about 15 minutes to the Nevada side of Heavenly). The Kingsbury grade was clear and dry and no traffic...an easy drive. The Holiday Inn Minden facility is newer and in great condition...clean and comfortable. Breakfast area large with plenty of tables...breakfast menu was typical good but basic and plain. We did, however, have some great dinners at JT Basque in nearby Gardnerville and at Salettis in Minden. And Carson Valley is beautiful with open range and snowcapped peaks all around. All said...it was an uncrowded, peaceful alternative to busy, slushy, crowded S.L.T. We'll opt for the Minden Holiday Inn on our next family ski wknd. Doug A.
