We decided last minute to go see the Annual Reno Hot Air Balloon Races on Sept.8, and I was able to find this economical motel. We are a couple in our 60's and extensively travelled and the Quality Inn was in a good location; 2 blocks from the Peppermill Casino, where we had a fabulous seafood dinner at their Oceana restaurant. Across the street from the Quality Inn is a donut shop and laundramat. We stayed in room 339, which is on the back side of the property on the 2nd floor, away from road noise and in the middle of the building, so it was nice and quiet. The room had new carpeting and the furnishings were in reasonable good condition. The room has a nice balcony with a table and 2 chairs overlooking the garden area with rose bushes and a variety of trees. There is a coffee pot and coffee provided in the room, as well as shampoo, conditioner, lotion and a hair dryer, ironing board and iron, and a small refrigerator. There was one unusual thing though. It was a patch of a hole in the formica countertop by the sink and they used some type of rubbery material to cover it. It didn't cause any problems, just not aesthetically pleasing. The king size bed was very comfortable, firm without being like sleeping on cement. We were able to get in a swim and really enjoyed the swimming pool as the temperature was very comfortable, not freezing like most places. The pool water was clean but there was a little bit of debris in the pool from the surrounding trees, to be expected. Breakfast in the morning is free and consists of waffles, sausage, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, several types of cold cereal, bagels & cream cheese, donuts/sweet rolls, bread, coffee, tea and juice, fresh fruits. However, staff indicated that an Indian cuisine restaurant was going to be opening in that space in about 2 weeks, and at that time they would still be serving an American style breakfast to the Inn's guests and that it would be even more extensive as a buffet, with scrambeled eggs, etc. Granted this Inn is not in absolutely perfect condition (deck of patio could use sanding and repainting) but it was clean and a great location. I booked this location over the phone and the price was the same as online....very reasonable. All the staff we dealt with, 4 different people, were all very pleasant and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
