A very charming and quaint place to stay at. Spent 3 nights (New Year’s Eve) here with family and some friends and we had a great time. The reception upgraded us to a suite and it was lovely and very kind of her. The room was neat and big. The breakfast is very basic here though and don’t expect anything fancy. The location is not bad if you want to go skiing at Tahoe.

Been over a year since I had the opportunity to revisit The Historian. The upgrades to the rooms are just great. Although a lot of new staff, the excellent service and support to make this stay as outstanding as the past ones. Of great improvement was the WiFI which was lacking at times in the past. The local area still stacked with great food, drink, and shopping of all kinds within walking distance. Hope it is sooner than a year before my next stay.
Location was great, rooms were clean. Staff went above, I can be picky and difficult especially after long hours of traveling but Kristi went out of her way to ensure that I was calm and satisfied. Thank you !
This hotel is a great find. The rooms are beautifully decorated, high ceilings, crown molding, new feel and look. The service is better than a 5 star hotel. When we arrived late and were hungry the attendant gave us several restaurants to choose and then the one we choose didn’t deliver. The attendant offered to go and pick our food up for us. Amazing. You won’t go wrong with this Hotel. the pictures don’t do it justice.
Had the most amazing time here! Staff was so friendly and recommended the Basque resteraunt across the street (JT Basque Bar & Dining Room) which was also amazing by far! After dinner we spent a night in watching movies and headed to Tahoe the next day! The room is beautiful and spacious with a cabin-like feel. The wood floors and design of the room blew me away! We will be coming back in the future for sure!

“The vision at the Historian Inn has always been to re-use, recycle and re-vamp” says owner, Deb Pierrel. “It is why we refurbish older buildings. Embracing the past with new, fun and unique services and amenities”
As the Historian Inn is finishing the install of their new in-room flooring made of recycled product, the reviews are in – and they are glowing! Cushy and comfy, easy to maintain and clean and long lasting, too. Leaders in the hospitality industry are taking notice.
Other note-worthy eco-isms are that currently, the Historian Inn [Eddy Street] has the only electric car charger between Bishop and Carson City – and it is free to use! They use mugs instead of to go cups and plastic water glasses, too. You can use a bike to get around town – free! Plus, they offer re-usable water-bottles in room.
The Historian Inn partnered with Green Suites Hotel Solutions who provide solutions that enhance, preserve and promote the environment. It is a perfect match. They provide upscale and soothing personal care amenities that aid in reducing waste while pampering guests with natural, high-quality products in sleek waste-less dispensers. “The positive guest reaction to our new dispensers has been a pleasant surprise,” says Dan Carpenter
We even have a new Be Green and Save Green rate! If a guest chooses no housekeeping, we give them 2% off of their room rate! Of course, to reduce the amount of laundry-related water consumption, housekeepers only change sheets every 3 days, unless asked by guests to do so, too.
And speaking of laundry and cleaning, they even have a device that mixes the laundry chemical with water prior to being introduced into the washer helps save both water and chemical usage.
This is a lovely hotel, right in town, that really lives up to its own advertisement. Our King room was beautiful, especially the slab wood countertop and headboard. We had a 2 pm wedding to get to, and the management worked hard to get us early check-in at noon. In-room amenities were high-quality (robes, lotion, fridge/micro, etc.) and there were snacks available for purchase, in room, at extremely reasonable prices. Strong, hot shower. Breakfast was free yogurt parfait or hot oatmeal, with additional items available for purchase, again very reasonable. And the coffee! For Peets or Starbucks fans, you will be very pleasantly surprised with the breakfast buffet coffee. The courtyard parking was nice, though all of downtown was fine and we had no security concerns at all. Free Wifi was good…
My daughter and I were vendors at the Candy Dance in Genoa. We had the greatest time. Very reasonable, great yogurt or hot cooked oatmeal ready for us for breakfast! Very small convenience store in lobby with wine shop! Very pleasant staff. Very happy with our stay! Just down the street from the “other” hotel that most vendors stayed (which I heard nothing good about and priced more!), not knowing about the Historian Inn. We certainly let them know how ours was! I would very much like to recommend the Historian Inn! Very comfy beds and bedding, large flat screen, very clean, walking distance from great restaurants! Would definitely stay again! They will match online deals by calling direct! No… no one paid me to write this review!

“Our recent trip to Carson Valley, Nevada proved to be even more than the local tourism bureau boasts when they say Carson Valley, Nevada prides itself on being a “Rugged, Relaxed, and Reachable Couples travel destination.”
The Historian Inn was an exceptionally pleasant, immaculately clean and a very comfortable, relaxed, and rugged lodging experience within the heart of the Carson Valley. We enjoyed that it was central to shopping gaming, hot springs, the V&T railroad and much of the valley’s history.
We were welcomed into a clean, comfy and roomy lodge-style great room, when we checked in, and this offered us a relaxing place to read and snack and decompress from the drive. A Market/Cafe coffee shop and Salon were also nice bonuses on property, convenient for an afternoon nosh, and we especially appreciated the lack of usual cigarette smoke and gaming noise so often found in some other Carson Valley properties.
For a couple seemingly always on the go, we appreciated that our room was spacious, neat, well-decorated with western decor and quiet to boot. We enjoyed the historic art and artifacts blended with modern niceties.
Parking was easy and a quality amenities like robes and teas and excellent toiletries and snacks were furnished along with extras that were available for purchase. The proximity to dining and recreational activities made it the perfect hub for exploring the area by car or foot. For Carson Valley moderate priced lodging, it was impeccable.
While we did not have our dog with us on this visit, we noted that dogs are very welcome with a very reasonable pet fee of only $20 for the entire duration of the stay”.
