Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Minden

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A lot of amenities for the price. Pool, hot tub, Breakfast, fridge, microwave

My room was comfortable and clean. The heater wasn't overzealous like some hotel heaters get in winter; it was easy to adust the temp in the room. The breakfast had healthy options. The hotel was within convenient distance to the ski slopes for a better price than South Lake Tahoe.

Don't like couldn't help me with anything They didn't have a managers to solve my issued And I will no recommend this

We were planning on staying 3 nights at lake tahoe. We knew there was holiday inn in lake tahoe and wanted to book there. Upon searching or rates on several sites, i stumpled upon orbitz and searched hotels in "lake tahoe" and on first page there was holiday inn which i booked 3 nights not knowing it was holiday inn in mindev nv. There were two options one to pay now and one to pay later and to mention is the rates were exact same for both options. I went ahead to select the pay now option and booked a reservation. Right after that i reaized the error and called hotel to cancel and explain that i want to go lake tahoe and am want to stay with same hotel. The hotel asked me to contact orbitz since it was booked through orbtiz. I called orbitz and its represntative understood the confusion and willing to help if hotel is ok with cancelling. She called the hotel and explained that customer wanted to book holiday inn in south lake tahoe and booked mindev nv in error. The hotel told her that booking is final even if the call is placed within 30 mins of booking and informed no refund can be issued. I was bummed that the hotel couldnt do this much to accomodate customers vacation and would instead have customer suffer commuting to and from desired vacation spot in spite of knowing that customer would book with same hotel brand in south lake tahoe. In the end i could see why the hotel took this selfish step. The hotel was in middle of no where and almost empty when we got ther

Family stayed here one night for a quick weekend getaway from SF. The kids (2 and 4 y/o) loved the 5pm cookie time in the Great Room. We had the whole pool area to ourselves and it overlooked the mountains. The room was comfortable, except for a tad bit hot at night even with the heat off (it was in the 30's that night). Breakfast was yummy with a lot of variety and supply. Lake Tahoe is close by! Overall great stay for a family of 4!

Good location for a night stay. reasonable distance and worth for money for lake tahoe trip. no hassles checkin and hot holiday-inn style breakfast. helpful front desk

soundproof not so well. We couldn't sleep until neighbor turned offf their TV. Plus, it is too far away from LAKe Tahoe.

The price was cheaper than the rest of the hotels in the area, and way cheaper than any hotels on the California side. This is a good deal being a three star hotel at this price. Place was clean and there was a free breakfast. The breakfast was not very smartly operated however, and would have to end up waiting for the simplest things. Not good if you have some place to go in a hurry.

It was an okay time. The service wasnt that great but the staff was really nice.

I received excellent assistance from the front desk to print boarding passes when I couldn't get on the internet in the business room.

not near any attractions, secluded but way expensive

I phoned the hotel 4 hours prior to my arrival to inform the staff that my truck transmission had failed on hwy 50 and that I had to be towed by AAA back to Stockton, Ca. I asked if I could come to the hotel at a better time and they said I woould lose my reservation and my money if I didn't show up.

The hotel is new construction and very clean. It is approximately 20 miles from Heavenly and fairly straight forward in getting there from the hotel. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The hotel has a pretty good complimentary continental breakfast and the dining area was spacious with a nice view of the mountains. The pool and jacuzzi were small but nice. Our room had microwave, mini-refrigerator, stainless steel mini-sink and flat-screen TV. There were plenty of lamps. Our bed was very comfortable and the pull-out sofa bed was also comfortable according to our children. The only criticism was that our room window which faced the parking lot did not have curtains only the white privacy sheers. We could not have complete darkness when we slept because of the parking lot lights. Also, our next room neighbor decided to have a party at 3am with their TV on with loud talking and laughter. I wish the walls were more sound proof. Overall, we received great value for the price paid and would recommend this hotel to our friends.

We wanted to stay in South Lake Tahoe since we were skiing at Kirkwood, but couldn't find a place there over the holiday weekend. We found this place and it was an easy drive from Kirkwood. The hotel is new and it is very clean and comfortable.

We had a medical emergency in the middle of the night. The desk clerk was very accommodating and bent over backwards to be helpful. He was great!
