First time I've stayed in Independence. The motel was neat and clean, and so were the rooms. This is an older property that has been updated, excellent wifi, mini fridge and microwave. Amazing view of the Sierra. Price was very reasonable and good value. Thanks!

My wife and i stayed at Independence Inn while traveling to the Reno area. The inn is small, well kept, neat and clean. Jim's pride of ownership shows. Best part-- the price. Very reasonable. You won't be disappointed.

I don't know, this is a motel with only about 10 rooms, the shower was a walk in and all rooms are first floor. FYI the parking lot is gravel and wheel chair might be difficult to maneuver.
