"Tom Stigler"
I stayed over a long weekend while in town for events at UNR. I read a lot of reviews of this hotel so I knew what I was getting, but I wanted a cheaper place than the big hotels downtown where I’ve stayed in the past. I was in and out several times a day at many different hours so I think I got a good assessment. Yes, it’s in a area of town that is not the best. There are a lot of rundown properties around but I felt safe. The folks staying there looked to be a mix of traveling families and people in town for gambling. They had 2 security guards frequently walking the property and I did not see any problems. It has a very small casino attached to it that I would avoid. I walked through on Saturday night and it was full with folks I wouldn’t want to have dinner with. From most peoples appearance I wondered how they could afford to gamble. From the reviews it seems one of the main complaints is the smoke smell from the casino which permeates the lobby when you walk in. I suppose they make $$ on the casino and need to keep it open. The room was very clean. No spots on carpet, no mold in shower and the bed was comfortable. The only issue with the room was the TV was an old tube style with a terrible picture but it did have a lot of channels to choose from including showtime. If your looking for a cheap stay and can put up with the area and the casino I recommend it.
