“Our favorite in Reno”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

We love this hotel. We have had a conference here as well as stayed here several times while traveling through. Always helpful and friendly staff. Very nice room- comfortable bed and lots of soft pillows. They are working on putting fridges and microwaves in all rooms and not all rooms have a good desk (a round table is provided instead) Also, there are not enough outlets in the room but we travel with a small extension cord since this happens frequently with so many electronics to charge at night. There is also a 24 hr Denny's and fantastic family owned Mexican take out right next door. Very convenient. Its a nice place, good price, friendly staff.

We desperately needed a hotel as we headed through the Reno-Sparks area, and were happy to find this one, and find a room. They did have adequate parking and turnaround space for the 30 foot trailer we were pulling. Easy access off the interstate. The desk clerk was helpful, and got us extra pillows on request. The room was nice and the bed was comfortable. Good climate control. The restaurant attached was just very average, but the wait staff were personable. Shower was average at best, and toilet was a little scary, as it filled to the top of the bowl each time, but flushed okay.

This Holiday Inn hotel is a terrific credit to the Holiday Inn brand. The staff, the rooms, facilities...everything was superb. Even the pool and hot tub was fabulous. It seemed the facilities are really new, and are spotless. Tons of convenient parking, super easy access from I-80, close to restaurants, stores, etc. This is not a casino hotel. It is quiet, relaxed, pleasant, and really clean. We came back for a 2nd stay the following week, it was that nice. A winer for every type of traveller.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. A north-facing room is cooler in the summer sun. No good views anywhere.

We stayed here before and after Burning Man as a way to break up the drive to BRC. The thing that I really loved about this hotel is that the check in was so quick and easy, you can get your keys right away and get to sleeping in the room, without too much hassle. The way that they could improve this hotel (imho) is to offer room service in the very early morning hours, so that you can have something to eat when you get back from BRC (although what also needs to be improved (imho) is the food at the restaurant, but service was really great)

We just stayed here this past weekend. We like to travel with our dog when we can. We went to see Dana Carvey at the Nugget and had initially booked the Courtyard Hotel (belongs to the Nugget). Needless to say, we ended up staying here. Thank goodness we could find a dog friendly place that did not have a weight restriction and had a reasonable pet fee of $20. All the dogs stay on the pet floor (5th floor). We stayed in Room #502 (corner room and very peaceful). It was clean and recently remodeled. They even gave our dog treats and had a place for them to go potty with bag available..
Chuck and the other front desk staff were very nice and helpful! This is a great place to go if you need a place for one night or are planing to stay a few nights in Reno. We saw all kinds of people here: families, couples, single people, dogs, etc. It is also close to a nice walking area called the Sparks Marina and the Legends Outlet shopping center.

Room Tip: Ask for corner rooms if you want more room. If your are a non-dog person, do not stay on the 5th fl...

I recently stayed here on a solo drive to CA from the midwest. I didn't have a reservation, and it was the 4th of July weekend--NOTHING was available in the Reno/Sparks area as far as a mid-range, lower-priced hotel without a casino. I tried many options (Hampton Inn, Hilton Garden Inn, Staybridge Suites, Fairfield Marriott, etc.) with no luck and was finally directed here. I called and they had availability. The guy at the front desk was very friendly and quoted me a price for a King bed room over the phone. By the time I arrived, the price had gone up (supply and demand, I imagine) but he remembered me and gave me the lower price--which was already a bit steep for what you get here.

The hotel itself was a nice surprise once you got inside. It's nestled right off the freeway between a bunch of large oil tanks and what appeared to be a truck storage area. It felt a little dicey to me, but it was close to several nicer areas, so I went for it. Once inside, the place is nice enough, with a nice garden courtyard and a modern lobby. My room was lovely--on the top (9th) floor in a corner--and very spacious. Other than the sluggish internet service, I found my room very comfortable, and I slept like a rock. Bedding was nice, the bathroom was clean, and there was a large flat-screen tv. Plenty of lighting for reading or working. I didn't want to have a sit-down breakfast, so I googled Starbucks and was surprised to find one just a couple of blocks away in an industrial area. Never would've looked there on my own--but it was convenient!

All in all, a good place to stay in a pinch--convenient to I-80 and a large outlet mall one exit away, with lots of good shops and restaurants. Ignore the ugly location and give the hotel a try!

We've stayed here before and were happy even though the restaurant had to close early as we arrived. This time we had no reservation but it was no problem. The desk clerk, Olivia, was new but a very nice and helpful young lady. She handled our check-in quickly and with a smile. We were traveling with our dog and she guided us to the Marina where there is a nice park that allows dogs.
Our room was clean and comfortable and although I-80 is nearby, it was fairly quiet. When I went to the restaurant at 6 am, there was no one there to sell me coffee. We went to Denny's next door for breakfast.
