Worse place I have ever been to. The rooms are infested with bedbugs, non-smoking rooms smell like smoke and the staff looks like they are on drugs, just like most of the people staying there. I witnessed people selling drugs in front of the place and the Manager hanging out with the disgusting prostitutes who walk the street in front.

Unsafe environment. Drug people loitering at checkin office and on property, meth addicts walking around, people living in the rooms with dogs. This hotel completely misrepresented themselves on their web site. I went to another hotel, didn't even use the room. I contacted the Nevada Tourism office to have this hotel deleted from hotels listing. A hotel has an obligation... More

I don't agree with the other reviews. This place is not that bad. The area isn't that good but the room itself is OK. The Internet is kinda of sporadic. The water varies in temperature etc. I don't notice anybody on drugs or loud people. In fact I can't hear in the room next door. I think the manager and... More

I spent the night in jail anyway and lost... More

The pool wasn't operating at the time we were there, but we only stayed 1 night, wanted to try out your resort after staying at WM for a week (the... More

Well, I am a resident of Reno, and my wife came off of an 8 hour flight to visit me. She was very tired, and we were looking for a place to stay. I had a couple of people recommend me to try out the Desert Rose. I went to drop her off at the office to inquire about it,... More

I did not stay at this hotel. I booked throught AAA in 5-07. After a late night flight, I spent 1&1/2 hour looking for this hotel only to find it was an old Econo Lodge. No where did it say Desert Rose Inn and no street #. When I finally found it at Midnight, the office was closed. They agreed... More

Location was not great. Room was not very pleasant, i.e. small and little dirty. Could smell smoke even though it was non-smoking room. Good for a nights stay, and don't want to spend day or multiple nights

Travelodge's website doesn't do justice of what I found upon driving onto the property. The property looks so much better! It was salmon-colored or maybe even a pinkish or southwest style. I was a little bit uneasy booking this property based on the pictures alone, but thought for the price during Labor Day weekend was attractive enough. It's about 2... More
