Resort fee

Are there any hotels in Reno that are not adding on resort fees after booking.

The Sands and I am pretty sure Harrahs....however, just add the fee into the cost of the room. If it is within your budget, stay. If not, move on. Is $5-$10 more a night really going to break you??

Complete Reno Resort Fee list is at

More than half of the Reno Casino Hotels are charging a fee. It's a trend that shows no sign of slowing down.

While it may seem like a pain, it's really not too big of a deal especially since they included some perks with it (valet parking, free wifi, using the excerise rooms, etc)

I know most will argue that they don't use the extra services but in the end, the resort fee doesn't really bother me. Especially since I'm use to AC casinos, who charge anywhere from $12-$15 for internet use, $15-$20 to use the exercise room and $10-$15 for valet.

The resort fee it totally wrong, and I think its fraud. Most of the properties that charge this fee make it very difficult to find that out. The fact that the fee may be small now means little since once it is even more acceptable, what prevents them from raising it ? Can you picture a room for $30 and a hidden resort fee of $50 ?

I will not stay at any property that charges resort fees. Since you must pay these fees regardless, it is fraud to not include them in the room rate.

In 20+ years going to Vegas and Reno, I have yet to find a hotel that either didn't have it disclosed on their website, or didn't tell me when I inquired by phone.

This is a completely dishonest policy and should be looked into by the Nevada State Attorney General. Charging resort fees after the fact is bait and switch, pure and simple.

***The fact of the matter is that when a fee is added to the price of a room for every customer then that fee is part of the cost of the hotel doing business and should be included in the price of the room as agreed.

***Comments have stating, "a $5 to $10 fee is not going to break you" are either poorly thought out or planted by the resorts. The amount of the fee is not the issue here. It is the way in which the fee is charged that is wrong.

***I highly recommend anyone who finds this practice offensive, go to the Nevada Attorney General's website, (http://ag.state.nv.us/about/complaints/complaints.html ), and file a general complaint.

Wouldn't it just be easier to NOT stay in a hotel that charges resort fees? that's what I do in Vegas... I don't think the Nevada Attorney General is going to be interested...the hotels can charge anything they want...It;s included in any reservation that I have seen...so, I just book elsewhere...

Or, if you use a lot of the services the resort fee entitles you to, and the TOTAL cost is a good deal, go for it. If you book a Harrah's resort(no resort fees), you pay extra for internet service, workout room, etc. This is not rocket science.

But read the fine print, if you book through a third party.

I don't need their slow wifi. I don't use their valet. It should be a user tax.
