Don't think about it

The hotel has 3 buildings, yet they are all dirty, smelly, not comfortable. I strongly discourage you to stay there.

RoadTrip Pit Stop

Stopped here on our way to California. The price was right for the hotel - much cheaper than the other hotels on the strip, but the hotel itself was kind of worn and didn't offer much. Luckily, we were walking distance to other hotels with better restaurants and attractions. Other plus: parking was free.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Those looking to save money in lodging costs but wanting to be walking distance to the main strip, stay here. Room was fine for the price but the better restaurants and attractions are a few blocks away at other hotels.

Good room for price.

Have stayed in most of the hotels in Reno. This was just as good, and $50 less!!! Friendly staff. BUT ONE MAJOR PROBLEM. They indicate they have WIFI, but not In the room, unless you pay $10. OK with that, but ONLY ONE devise!!! Still, I was very pleased, and WILL stay again.

Nice Place

The hotel is in a nice location so it makes it easy to get around to other places The only thing I did not like is that the cigarette smoke smell is very strong.

Ick

This is a old, run-down hotel/casino. The staff and clients have all had hard lives and converged at this point. Only one of three elevators worked, drunks were fighting by the front entrance, and left over food from room service sat in the hallway all day. It seemed less hotel and more old European hostel. The room was clean but old. The electrical outlets in the room were so old they wouldn't keep plugs in them. Trim was missing all over the room. Sheets were clean though. THe casino is basically where Reno's destitute hang out in the cold weather. Not fun.
