The Historian Inn is one of the only dog friendly hotels in Gardnerville, and we were not disappointed. The staff are so nice and friendly, we even received a doggie basket full of goodies upon check in. Clean and convenient!

We were pleased with every aspect of this hotel. Our outlook may have been enhanced by a visit to the Minden meat & Deli before arriving at our room.

Nice hotel situated right next to Main St.

Hotel was nice and clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. When I had a problem closing the curtains, they came right away to fix them.

Nice hotel downtown

Went to the Garnerville area to go to hot springs for a couple of days. This hotel has been updated resently and they did a nice job. Staff was great, room was good, but overlooked Main Street . We did get some road noise, but not bad. The breakfast was yogurt or oats, anything else you had to buy. That was the only downside.
