“Reno Airport Best Western”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

For the price, this is a very convenient hotel to stay at. However, the ice machine is chronically broken; Jacuzzi does not work well; they offer no free breakfast. Parking can be a challenge, which I've found the case to be at other Best Western hotels in Nevada and northern California. This hotel does have a very nice outside area surrounded by the facility. It's close to the airport and stores; easy access.

The upgrade room I was in was newly renovated, even had a very slight 'new paint' aroma. Quiet, very clean, everything worked. Great front desk experience. Airport shuttle with no wait, both directions. Only drawback: nice, big flatscreen tv, but no HD channels and set to the wrong (squished) aspect ratio.

The cost was very reasonable. Nice Place, great bed. Breakfast is in an attached restaurant with reasonable prices. Restaurant service was very good. Although near the airport, there was no "airport noise". Quiet rooms, spacious and plenty of parking. I will probably stay there the next time that I visit the Reno/Sparks area. This is a good place for business and families to stay. There are numberous restaurants within a one mile radius.

Quick and cheap. Effective for what we were looking for. Slightly unprofessional at check-in and restaurant. However, food was delicious at the restaurant. Nice big courtyard that is closed in. Pet friendly :) Comfy rooms, comfy chairs. Best mini fridge in hotel I've seen. Overall an average experience. Nothing special, nothing terrible.

This property was clean and had many amenities our quick stay did not allow us to utilize. The room was roomy but the bed was pretty hard - pillows however were great! Most Best Westerns we stay at offer a complimentary breakfast - some even hot and made to order, not just expanded continental, but this one did not. You could purchase breakfast at the on-site restaurant. One kind of odd thing - girl at the counter during our check out advised they would be charging us for a movie. We didn't check in until 8 PM and it had been viewed during the day - hmmm... It took a bit more than a few minutes, but it was cleared up. Don't think we got a real apology about it, but she was pleasant enough overall.

Last time we stayed the bathroom sink had no running water. This time the room only had hot water. Both times we were offered another room. Great but we were settled in already so said no. Staff Great. Rooms old, dirty - Last Visit Jan 2014 was our LAST Stay. Best Western rates this hotel a PLUS. NO way. It is maybe one step above a motel 6.

To turn on the water in the bathroom you need to pull the handle out and then turn to adjust the water temperature, by only turning the handle without pulling it out first, will not turn on the water, by turning the handle before pulling it out, you will get hot or cold waters only, due to the position of the handle when you pulled.

Due to the room & facilities, yes, we do have an older property, that's why we have just started the "Best Western Property Improvement Program", during the program; we are going to upgrade the entire hotel. You mentioned the room was dirty, if you could provide any additional explanation about it, that will be really appreciate.

Please consider staying with us again, and thank you for your business.

The toilet kept flushing itself all night long. I had to sleep with earplugs to be able to get any sleep. The room was nicely decorated, but I was there one night and could barely get any sleep at all due to your plumbing problems. It was too late to have maintenance look at it (after midnight) when I turned off the TV and wanted to go to sleep. Also, the heater would intermittently push out hot air then cold air. It was a very cold night and the bed did not have a comforter or quilt on it and to top it off (as I already mentioned) the heater would intermittently blow out cold air). Overall it was not a restful stay. When checking out the staff did not even ask how my stay was.
