I was lucky enough to have chosen to stay at this best western mid Jan. 2011. I had just come from the reno airport, located conveniently just down the street, and had The Worst over 24 hours of traveling in my life! I was so overly tired, it was the middle of the night, I was traveling with my stressed... More

My pregnant wife and I chose this place to stay not only because of the convenience of the airport, but also because I am a Best Western employee. Although I had an employee rate, the price was still close to $70. Not complaining about that too much though. Check in went pretty smooth (although guests are forced to stand right... More

I've stayed at many hotels in Reno. This hotel exceeded my expectations, at reasonable price! We arrived late at night and left early for a 6am flight. If you're flying in/out of the aiport, the location is ideal. The free shuttle runs 24/7 and it's a two minute drive, tops. The lobby was interesting and nice. Halls looked mostly clean.... More

We arrived in Reno very late at night and were pleased with the great location of this hotel right across the street from the airport. We also had a 6AM departure at the end of our trip, so the close proximity to the airport was really helpful for us! Additionally, the service at the hotel was wonderful! Their staff was... More

After a Horror experience in Hellhole Downtown RENO, amid crack/meth heads, beggars, filthy streets, and pigeons taking over the attic of the big casinos since the windows and A/C vents are broken or gone....... going to the burbs was a welcome escape--and I normally eschew the burbs, generally preferring the dining and culture of downtowns. But after finding blood in... More

After a hotel 2 hours east of Reno didn't honor our confirmed reservation, we decided to make the drive to Reno to spend the night. The Best Western Airport Plaza was listed in the AAA tourbook, and because they accept pets we crossed our fingers and called on the cell phone while enroute. Starting with taking the reservation all the... More

First visit to Reno. I highly recommend this Best Western. The staff are very friendly oriented and go out of their way to accommodate one with our needs. Facility is great, beautiful and gives you a warm welcome feeling as you walk in. The rooms are spacious, beautiful and clean. Cleanness is a big factor for me and I didn’t... More

I came to Reno to visit a sick friend. Though the hospital is close by, the hotel was able to shuttle me there and back anytime, and that makes a big difference late at night. The place itself is clean and quiet - no airport noise at all! I was there during the holidays and the christmas decorations in the... More

I received a free (I mean FREE) flight from southwest and decided to fly whichever location my finger landed on. It happened to be Reno! Without any friends or previous knowledge of the city, I decided to go to the BEST WESTERN AIRPORT PLAZA HOTEL. In the matter of a few hours I had met several other guests in which... More

The Best Western is spacious and beautiful and has all the amenities one may need to have a lovely visit in Reno. It is walking distance to the casinos downtown but also far enough to be able to relax without feeling the need to partake in that scene. In fact, we far more enjoyed being in out hotel, eating at...
