Wife and I picked this place during the StreetVibrations Event in Reno, despite the bad reviews and the relatively high price ( $61/nte). Boy, what a mistake! The GOOD: It's close to Stateline casinos, food and shopping, in-room fridge. The BAD: Lobby looks dirty, smells bad and is unfurnished except for the front desk. The owner (Asian lady) wears pyjamas... More

We got to the property -- I checked out 3 rooms - all stunk like smoke - broken toilets, and broken sink fixtures, ratty bed coverings, dismal & run down -- no towels or toilet paper, the front desk lady said she would "provide those items upon request", no soap in the baths - -I could go on and on...

I'm told normally their rooms go for $79 - when we called them on labor day weekend, they told us it would be $179, but when we checked-in, they jacked-up the price to $279. The room was tiny, the linens were dirty, and some of the lights in the room were not working. It's a really run-down place, and not... More

Everything was dirty, i mean EVERYTHING, we stayed two nights there and it was awful. The TV was so small and dated, you barely can see. The refrigerator was dirty and small, same with the microwave. Like i said, everything was so dirty, you have to respect your customers, you can't give then a room looking and smelling like that.

My husband and I was here for the Memorial day weekend. We checked for hotels online and almost everything was too expensive or had no vaccancy. Even after reading all the negative comments in Yelp, we decided to go for this for a one night stay. The only plus here is the location and the friendly front desk staff. After... More

As soon as we walked in we noticed a lot. The towels in our bathroom were still wet from God knows what. I assumed there was a towel rack above the sink due to the nail holes and peeled off paint but no towel rack. I looked under the bed and trash everywhere. The heater didn't work (We went in... More

First off.. Don't do it. Save your money and sleep in your car if you're that desperate. The door to our room was wide open, the shower head wasn't attached to anything, there were multiple holes in the walls, and the sheets probably hadn't been cleaned in weeks. I've never been more disgusted by a room. I wasn't expecting it... More
