Econo Lodge new Reno-Sparks Convention Center

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Reserved and paid for a non-smoking room, when I arrived I was told they only had one room left and it was a smoking room. I had called earlier in the month to let them know I was going to be checking in late, they had no record of my call. The hotel room was absolutely disgusting. Burn holes everywhere, short hairs in the sheets! Looked like a rent by the hour escort hotel. DO NOT LET YOUR FAMILY STAY HERE. I called around to get another hotel but everything was booked die to the convention. I was forced to stay in this dump for one night.

The rook was comfortable. It is an older hotel that could use some remodel. They advertise free breakfast but there is no breakfast just coffee and a breakfast bar so it isn't even a continental breakfast. They receptionist stated that they had not had breakfast in a few years. They still advertise it though so we would not have made reservations if we had known.

The exterior of the hotel looks well constructed. The rooms are spacious. However, the interior could use some renovation. The heater has no temperature control and is loud. You control the heat by varying the air flow, which is hardly a way to regulate the temperature. The faucet was mislabeled so that I waited 5 minutes for the warm water to come out, only to find out that warm water is to the right. Mattress was uncomfortable.

Stay was ok. High Speed Wi-Fi and Good Breakfast was promised, but none of these were delivered to satisfaction.

We rolled in late at night, and just needed a comfortable place to sleep. The neighborhood is super sketchy, and there were some questionable folks hanging around in the parking lot... We actually considered canceling our reservation as soon as we pulled up, but had prepaid and were advised that our reservation was non-refundable. The front desk manager was cordial, and honest. When we inquired as to whether break-ins were common, or if it was safe to leave things in the vehicle (we had items packed in a rooftop container) he advised us to leave as little as possible in the car, and to park in the front of the lot, near the office, where it was less likely that we would have issues. The room was decently clean, but very utilitarian. Beds were hard and the thermostat in the room was non-functional. We did not bother reporting it, as there was a laminated sign on the wall advising to use the fan in the corner to regulate temperature (management was obviously aware of the issue). It was very cold, but we were traveling with sleeping bags, so we made due. Overall - I was expecting a whole lot more comfort for the price. If we had realized it was going to be this spartan, we'd have spent another ten bucks and stayed at one of the larger hotels. I would not stay here again, except in dire circumstance.

Fresh from 2 weeks in Burning Man, Econo Lodge was the perfect rest stop to get cleaned up and prepare for the long drive to Los Angeles. Staff was great, facilities were very decent and a welcomed change from the desert. The only downside is they are very light on amenities, but I had my own so I was alright.

It wasn't too bad, it's quite run down. But there are a lot of places near by for food.

We were on the quiet side away from the road, and had a good night. The water faucet in the shower was loose, it took a bit to get the heat adjusted. All the rooms on our side had a half dozen steps, either up or down. The breakfast room was limited since the regular one is being remodeled.

We flew into Reno, so this hotel was just minutes from the airport and very easy to get to even in the dark. The hotel restaurant was very good for the included breakfast. Other restaurants and shopping across the street. A casino blocks away and not in busy downtown.

average room,clean but nothing special,there was suppose to be free WiFi but we could not connect to it.

Room was clean, Room was dark, even during the day. This hotel is on the edge of what I would consider the safe part of Reno.

We were in town for the Bill Cosby show at the Silver Legacy and couldn't get a room there. So we booked this hotel instead since it was only 5 mins away from the Legacy. We enjoyed the quiet surroundings and we were surprised by the spaciousness and cleanliness of the room considering that this hotel seems to be fairly old. Although my husband thought the pillows were uncomfortable and didn't sleep too well as a result, we both agreed that we would definitely consider visiting this hotel again.

rooms were ok traveled to carson city whilke in reno. very helpful at the front desk.the resturant at the hotel was ok but very busy due to a basketbakkl tournement and was understaffed. our waitress did all she could toi accomodate us in our time of waiting.

Great place. rooms were clean. facilities were fairly new and in good working order. Check-in folks were friendly. Porch and courtyard were nice.
