I thought I'd save myself a few bucks by staying at this Motel 6 in Reno rather than one of the casinos. I should've spent the extra $25-30 and stayed somewhere else. For starters, the carpet had most definitely not been vacuumed prior to my arrival, or if it had the job was done very poorly as there was lint, etc. all over the floor. Secondly, I found a hair that did not belong to me in the shower (it was jet black and I have brown/gray hair). Thirdly and most annoying to me was their wi-fi setup. They charge $2.99 for internet access to begin with and no other place I stay at outside of Reno and Vegas does anyone charge for wi-fi. That alone annoys me but what made this place worse is that when I went to get online, the only way I was able to do so was to download 2 "updates" to my Java. I have traveled a LOT the last 5 years and stayed in a lot of different type of places and not once until this Motel 6 have I been asked to download anything to access the web. The snotty clerk told me it was to avoid getting viruses in their system which I feel was a load. I am frankly not interested in downloading anything from a place I have no knowledge of. I did receive a refund for my interent access fee but was unhappy over the lack of access.
I might also add the surrounding area is a bit sketchy as well though that is no fault of the motel itself that I could see. Also, kudos for the mattress quality. It was excellent.
Overall, very much not recommended.
