4/10 Fair

Won't be here again
First I have to say that the girl that checked me in was great. Friendly and nice. My keys didn't work she reprogramed them then walked me to the room to make sure they worked. She could not have been better. Now the reasons for the bad review... We had to wait till after check in time because they were cleaning the floor in our room. No problem and maybe ten minutes. I didn't even care till we got in the room after being out for the night, took off our shoes and walked in the bedroom to get undressed and our feet were black. The jetted tub? We all know why everyone books those rooms. This tub fits 1 person. Don't bother. The dead cockroaches we found against the walls. The bed... You'd be more comfortable on a pile of rocks with scorpions. The area... Close to the things ya wanna do but ya still don't wanna walk back at night. Crackheads arguing with invisible enemies, fist fights between homeless drunks... Description said it had a hair dryer. It had the holder on the wall but no dryer. Blood 9n the bedspread. Looked fine till you looked instead of glanced around. I'll be back in Reno, but not at this hotel.

Needs remodeling. Ok for one night.
Older motwl that needs lots of love. Great for an overnight place to sleep. The bed was super comfortable. This hotel is i dire need of remodeling and updating, from the rooms to the parking lot. However, the lady who manages the front desk is AWESOME. Super helpful and friendly. She makes this place feel ok. NOTE: Front Desk CLOSES EARLY. NOT 24 HOURS!

Seemingly a lot of weekly renters. Better options in the area for an overnight stay.

2/10 Poor

Place is horruble, carpet and beds were disgusting. Felt all the springs in my bed. Heard neighbors ALL night. Sketchy people who call this dump home. The only good thing was the nice girl at check in. Do not stay here unless you are homeless.

2/10 Poor

THIS is the place where PRISON MATTRESSES go to DIE. From the worn carpet that was ONLY STRINGS at the threshold to the sink that was just HANGING in the bathroom this was a disaster. The beds were painfully low because they were thin, awful, plastic wrapped junk. The box springs had only box and no strings. The "bedspreads" had cigarette burns and material missing (cut out) along with stains of unknown origin. The air conditioner worked, but sounded like the starting cart for a jet engine. The shower had no tub stopper, nor an overflow drain, just a hole where the drain should have been. The shower would not reach to my nipples and I'm 5'10". Shall I go on -- or would you like to compare the pictures on the web site to the sad excuse for a room that I stayed in. It was cheap, but for $30 I could have stayed in ANY of the nicer Hotels. The savings was NOT worth it.
