I got a great rate at this low star Motel. When I walked in I thought of motels forty years ago except for the TV on the wall. Very little hot water in the shower but hot water in the sink? Linoleum in the bath wash missing on one edge. This place needs an update!

This place is a joke. First off the address is incorrect,and it sends you to the college. I spent an extra 15 minutes trying to find it. Then once you arrive the property is in disrepair and dirty. The owner is a crook who takes money from people who have nothing with no apology. The booking site didn't mention a... More

To be really honest, I stayed here on my way to Burning man (if you don't know about it - think big festival outside Reno where about 50'000 people need a nights' hotel in Reno the same weekend before heading - this is probably THE peak season for Reno of the year!), which is a hard time to get a...

Beware! This is an old, broken down, only moderately clean, slightly smelly establishment in a bad part of town. But the worst part is the rude, dishonest management. If you decide to risk it and stay here, compare prices with other places in town and make sure you are getting THE cheapest rate because it's definitely the worst motel.

One bed didn't have a bedspread & the blankets were cheap & worn out. The room smelled musty/smoky. At first we didn't notice what appeared to be carpet beetles, as they were not visible during daylight. At night, however, they came out by the hundreds. The a/c was very noisy & barely adequate. When we complained, they moved us to... More

Rooms smelled, pulled sheets down and there were gnats in the sheets, maid never vaccumed.
