“Very Family Friendly, but More Like a Budget Motel in Service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

I couldn't believe how cheap rooms were there. Mine would have worked out at $55 a night or so if I had not booked an airfare/hotel package ($606.00).

My room had central heating, two king beds (actually the cheapest available), free wi-fi and a large desk, TV and DVD.

It was so hot when I first arrived, that I turned the central heating down.

They do not have lunch or dinning services, but a complimentary breakfast and coffee bar.

I used Red bucks vouchers for some of my meals out, but mostly didn't need them.


They are the only hotel so I am told that offers direct shuttle service to and from the airport, that is from Carson City. Take fares one way can cost between $$55-65 and you have to order a taxi from the hotel otherwise.

Though services were not luxury I would rate them as very good value for money.

There is car park round the back near their conference center, so plenty of room for parking and you are almost opposite the Carson City Station Casino.

Well worth it if you are on a budget, as I was. And very nice staff.

Room Tip: Take a Room away from the street. And you need a car to get about.

Did not like the idea of paying the same price as in San Francisco, so tried it. Not too bad. Reasonably clean. Check in was pretty easy. Location is fine.

Several gripes. 1. the place is dated, even though it has seen some upgrade lately. 2. the bathtub is squeaky. 3. the bedding looks dated and well used. 4. breakfast is rather limited in choice. 5. exercise facility is not in the main building and requires a special access key.

So in the end, it is a decent choice. It is perhaps above average in Carson City. Different from many local hotels, this hotel has no casinos and does not allow smoking.

I've stayed here on 2 occasions. It's central to everything I needed in Carson.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
They moved me from a ground floor room (as I like to sleep with the window open), to a second floor room, with no problems.
The lady on the front desk, helped me out when I needed info off a website, and she looked it up for me.
Breakfast is basic, but fine.
As a single female traveller I felt perfectly safe there.

Room Tip: Preferred to not be on the ground floor, as if sleeping with window open, didn't feel too safe.

Just another average hotel..the room was hot when we arrived as the air conditioner was not working properly. we were move to another room upon request...the front desk clerk was very helpful and friendly. They offered a breakfast, however their kitchen helper was rude and arrogant and not worth the lousy breakfast offering to deal with his bad attitude...

The plaza was excellent for the price. The staff was super nice and the free breakfast (including waffles) was delish. I would recommend this hotel for sure. At the time we were there, there was even a NV congressman stating there. Great service, great rates, great breakfast. The carpets needed cleaning, but everything was wonderful.

At a cheap rate (we payed $54.00 on a Monday night), the Plaza is good bargain. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful, and the room, while dated, was clean and comfortable. The free breakfast is adequate (with host John making waffles). As with all wood frame construction of this era, above-floor noise could be a problem, so try to get a room on the top floor opposite the street.

Room Tip: Try to get a top floor room opposite the main street.

There is no question that the Plaza is the best deal in Carson City. It is clean and very pleasingly decorated with trees and vines painted on the walls instead of cheap-o framed pictures. The free breakfast is adequate with hard-boiled eggs, waffles, cold cereals, and English muffins plus beverages. If you want decaf coffee, though, be sure to ask for a coffee maker and decaf when you check in; the breakfast room has no decaf. The breakfast room BTW has a beautify view of the mountains just to the west. Even if you don't eat breakfast, don't miss the view. The location is convenient to downtown, the capitol, and legislature, just across the street, the main drag, from the Station Casino and Hotel. Reservations at the Plaza can be cancelled, if you need to, without penalty. Some other places offer the same prices but won’t allow cancellations. Go figure!

Room Tip: I don't think it matters. Our room was on the front, right on the street. No problem; we didn...
