Although I'm not sure what is "executive" about this location, we found it a reasonable place to stay while visiting Reno for a weekend dog agility competition. The motel is a little run-down and scruffy (asphalt in parking lot not in perfect repair, exterior could use a coat of paint, bathroom a bit dingy and dated), but nothing horrible and frankly we don't care about that stuff anyway! We aren't in Reno to gamble, party, etc., and we don't care about proximity to casinos. etc. either ... so we definitely pick places to stay that don't have a resort fee. We just want someplace that is clean, safe and quiet to stay that doesn't charge us an arm and a leg because we travel with our clean, well-behaved dogs.
-Ground floor double-queen room was quiet, clean, comfortable and plenty big. No major gross smoke-smell or coverup, unlike the last place we tried in Reno - just a faint whiff of chemical cleaner/air-freshener. Hooray!
-The room had a refrigerator! Major plus for us.
-Grassy areas nearby to walk the pooches. Nice to see these areas were clean ... YAY for cleaning up after your dogs, people!!
-On-site service was no more than perfunctory, but was, well, serviceable! No complaints there, but those who need extra help, or made to feel special might feel slighted.
-Assortment of breakfast items was pretty thin, and the coffee was truly appaling ... but given the price this wasn't overly upsetting.
-Pet fee is a bummer, however the booking clerk did give us a small discount off the rack rate to partially offset the fee. We ended up paying only a few dollars more total per night here than at the supposedly uber-cheap, but also refrigerator-free and definitely disgustingly stale-smoke-stinky S. Virginia Motel 6 that is a few blocks away, where we stayed on our last trip to Reno.
-It would be nice to have a microwave in the room.
Overall, we feel we received good value here and that it was a comfortable and safe place to stay ... we would stay here again.
