Definitely recommend

Gorgeous location and views. Hot springs are great, though hot pools could be hotter and large pool should be cooler for a refreshing change from the hot springs. Comfortable bed. Very clean. Bathroom cabinets were old and cheap. Lighting in bathroom was too dark. Restaurant on premises was mediocre for both food or beverages, and had limited days and hours opened.

Yes, I recommend this property.

Relaxing and convenient

Upon arrival, I was greeted by a friendly staff member for check-in then sent to the concierge desk. They answered all my questions and handed out a few maps of the overall property which helped as the site is actually larger than anticipated. It was very convenient having a restaurant and bar onsite serving what I would consider to be an “upscale” menu. The hot springs tubs and large heated pool were a pleasant and unique experience with each one being a different temperature. Everyone was so relaxed in that setting and it was nice to chat with all the different folks. There’s a pool house complete with a sauna, steam room, showers and lockers. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating especially the pool maintenance kid. This was a nice change from the previous poor reviews regarding staff. The surrounding views of the snow covered mountains looked like a postcard. Bring your binoculars to watch the geese and wildlife in the adjacent open sanctuary. The short stroll to Genoa day on the paved trail was an added bonus. Overall a very relaxing and pleasant stay.

Yes, I recommend this property.

Fantastic location

The springs are well laid out and maintained. The spa amenities are great for those who just want to relax and dont need pampering. Family friendly too.

Yes, I recommend this property.

Corporate holiday inn reservations mess ups

Any semblance of organization at holiday inn would have made the stay so much better. We were promised late check out, that our rooms would be in the same building, and that as paying guests, we would be able to use the spa facilities for free. None of that was true upon check in at Wally's. As an owner of a reno hotel/casino for years, and an employee of other local casinos, I can say this was beyond disappointing and unprofessional of holiday inn assoc. maybe the training is lacking? Maybe holiday inn doesn't care what promises are made? Not sure, but it was incredibly frustrating to deal with. Thank god the people actually checking us in at Wally's went the extra mile to make it right. They were fabulous. None of the three phone calls I made to the HI Corp line were even noted when our records were pulled up. The situation certainly wasn't for my lack of planning or trying to make the stay go smoothly. Notice, I said I had called the HI corporate line three times. This is not on the Wally's employees. Please do better.

Dirty hot tubs

Please clean the pools daily. They are very dirty. It seems like they were not cleaned for days. I’m not the only one who noticed. Other previous guests as well.

No, I do not recommend this property.

Bugs and Cold Food

Not clean rooms--bugs in the bed. Restaurant will place your order to the last of the line unless you have a reservation--per the manager when asked why it took 45 minutes of my single order (dining alone) to arrive. She said without a reservation, it can take up to an hour to receive a meal.

No, I do not recommend this property.
