Unexpected quality

When I originally booked the hotel I thought that I had booked the Super 8 near the Meadowood Mall, but found out my mistake upon arrival at that hotel. We were pleasantly surprised when we found this Super 8 was "off the beaten path" and was near a much quieter section of North Reno (by UNR). Probably the best part was when we discovered that there is a FANTASTIC off-leash dog park just one street over. Yes, they take pets. Their coffee at the breakfast bar was tasty, but the selection of food was lacking. If you are looking for a quiet, restful place and don't want/need the glitter of the casinos then this is the place to stay.

Gross! Slept in my long-sleeves w/ socks.

Stayed for one night. The staff was friendly for the limited interaction I had. The bed sheets had other people's hair on them. My friend and I slept in our long-sleeve clothes. I wore my hoodie and socks. My friend did not wear socks and woke up with bite marks on his ankles. I know "you get what you pay for" and all that but you'd think $45 would get you something better than that. The location was good only because we were attending a UNR football game. Not recommended for skiers or those that are in Reno to gamble. It is the closest bargain hotel to UNR.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

A 3 minute walk north on Virginia, Little Waldorf Restaurant was very good. Had a BBQ chicken pizza and a few beers. Pizza was very good and service was quite attentive despite the fact that we were wearing the "other team's" colors.
