Although the carpets were worn and stained you get that at a lot of places. But the room was clean... See full review

Clean and comfy

Clean room and comfy bed. Carpet was a bit dirty if I'm nitpicking. Close to everything downtown. Lots of eating and shopping. I still have yet to go to one of the pool parties though.

We're in the lobby...

Best part of this trip was some drunk lady looking at the elevator call button forever (these elevators are slooooow) and then asking if we're going down. I explained to her there is no down for us...we're in the lobby. She needed the 9th floor by the way.

The pool was great. Clean and a perfect temperature. Not crowded as most of the guests probably can't swim..

Good Value. Better than I expected

The hotel was smoky, but that is to be expected with a casino. They were short staffed at the front desk, so we had to wait about 20 minutes just to check in. The room was better than I expected (I had low expectations based on the $30 price). I'd stay there again for the same price.

Too expensive for room value

Granted, we booked last minute on Memorial Day weekend, but spending $150.00 for a night at this hotel was not worth it. I would have rather stayed somewhere else, outside Reno, for less. Guess we will learn.

Good place to spend the nighttimes

Pleasant and quiet. Located close to National Bowling Stadium where I was bowling in the National Tournament. Shuttles back and forth from the stadium were very convenient. Shuttles back and forth from the airport were also convenient. There was nothing bad I could say about my short stay.
