Econo Lodge Near Reno-Sparks Convention Center
Ranked #39 of 64 Hotels in Reno
Reviewed September 11, 2012

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.

Room Tip: Room 339 is a nice quiet room on the second floor in the back of the facility away from road noise a...

First I must mention that the young man at the front desk was very friendly, pleasant, and efficient. Having said that, we will not stay here again. It is located at the corner of two VERY busy and noisy main streets, the building and furnishings are very old, the room dark, and I did not consider it that clean. We were in the rooms numbered in the 500's, perhaps it is an older section? We decided to take anything potentially considered valuable to the room with us rather than leave things in the car. One of the towels was very dirty-looking (stained?) The only reason we decided to stay here in the first place is that it was Labor Day weekend and there was nothing else available in the entire Reno area.

We travel to Reno once or twice a year to visit family and discovered this place several years ago. While it's not luxurious, it is clean, comfortable and very close to shopping, casinos, freeways and just about any restaurant you can imagine. We always get the second floor king bed room which is very roomy with a large outdoor balcony, refridgerator, table & chairs as well as a recliner chair. Our room just had brand new carpeting put in and it looks like they're still working on it in other areas. The swimming pool here is great, heated (in season) and 3 - 10 feet deep. There are many trees and flowers on the property especially in the courtyard area which makes you forget that your right in the middle of central Reno! The complimentary buffet style breakfast is in the onsite restaurant and is I think a step up from most small hotels - sausage, hard boiled eggs, bagels, waffles, yogurt, juice etc. My only disappointment this trip was that the family of cats who had lived outdoors on the property for years and were very guest friendly had been removed by new management. Sorry to see them go.

Room Tip: We prefer the upstairs king bedded rooms

This was our second stay at this motel. It is an older motel, but the room was clean and we spent a quiet night. It cost $71.18 for a non-smoking, queen bed. They served an average breakfast, but the room had no table or chairs for eating. We set at a table outside the door. I would have no problem staying here again.

This is an older property but very well kept up and very clean. The room we had was on the second floor and we had a nice balcony that overlooked the pool. Breakfast was included some hot items as well as pasterys and cold cerial.

I found this inn on-line and booked it. Got there about 10 pm. Check-in was easy. The room was decent for the price. The WIFI was relatively fast.

However:

The A/C didn't work but I was too tired to change rooms. Since the fan was functioning it kept the room at a just tolerable temperature. There was a cigarette burn in the one of the bedspreads about the size of a quarter. The screen to the outdoor terrace kept sliding off its track and had to be re-set each time it was opened.

I told the person at the front desk about the A/C at checkout. He told me the system was old and needed to be replaced. Not really the response one would expect. This inn has potential but the staff need to be more responsive to the operational condition of the basic items mentioned above.

Overall my experience was very good. When I checked in the people at the desk were nice, my room was clean, larger than I thought it would be and only cost $85 in season with tax. I would definitely stay here again.
