“Clean and Affordable, Nothing Fancy”
Reviewed 5 February 2006

Let's face it, for $40/night, when Harrah's is charging $150, you're not going to get a five-star place. On the other hand, if you want a place to sleep that's a good value, then maybe the Wonder Lodge is right for you.

Upon checking in, the desk clerk had a bit of trouble finding my reservation in the computer. It seemed Travelocity did something to it. After less than a minute, though, I had my key and was up in the room. Everyone here was friendly. I didn't find any problems with the towels, so unless you need a towel the size of a bedsheet to dry off, they're adequate for nearly everyone. The television had at least 60 channels, so the kids will have plenty to watch, and you don't have to worry about blocking adult programming channels, because there aren't any, which is nice and family-friendly.

It was a little bit noisy at night, with the traffic, and people headed back to their rooms, but you're not paying for soundproof rooms, so that's to be expected. I heard a lot of fire sirens, so I wonder if there's a firehouse nearby. Interestingly, there are signs posted nearby saying that the area is under video surveillance, probably because they want to discourage crime. I would advise not walking around in the area after dark if you're a single woman--there are a few transients in the area. I'm not single or a woman, so I wasn't bothered, but save sightseeing in the immediate area for the daytime.

The Wonder Lodge is conveniently located to the major casinos--a couple of blocks walk to the Eldorado, Harrah's, and Silver Legacy. There's a corner market nearby that has liquor, snacks, sodas, and convenience items.

I would NOT stay here again. The beds were NOT comfortable. The towels were not even big enough to cover my 5-year-old. The amount of noise both from vehicular traffic and the somewhat transient people, did not allow for any rest or sleep. It was not a pleasant stay. If you are going to go to Reno, spend the extra $10 a night and go to a place that actually has people to clean the room DAILY.

I have stayed at the Wonder Lodge many, many times and have experienced nothing other than warm freindly service. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well appointed.

You are less than 5 minutes walking time from the main casinos in the downtown area. You just can't beat the motel for the price you pay.
