    Its the cheapest place i ever stayed...the bed is so uncomfortable i felt like if i was Fred Flintstones sleeping on a rock bed.  The place has many good things, the mall is right across street, Best Buy, Borders, and many major stores are across and along the the street.

    Had a great experience here. Arrived in Reno around 2:00 am and couldn't find anywhere afforable to stay. Called here and the guy was super friendly and since it was so late even gave us a deal on the price. The rooms were a lot nicer than I have expected them to be too. They also had a pool but we didn't get to go swimming in it. Maybe next time :) I will for sure come here next time I visit Reno.

    It is a Super 8, and one shouldn't expect the 4 Seasons. But for $50/night, this is a great value. The rooms were clean, everything worked, and the bed was comfortable. The room was even quite a bit bigger than normal at this price point. My only grumble was the door stuck a little and the paint needed redone.

    Overall, not bad. Paid $45 plus tax. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean.  Paint chipped off the toilet seat and the shower head was somewhat weak, but I would stay here again.  If we had booked online we would have saved $10.

    This property appears to simultaneously be a Super 8 and a Days Inn ... they share the same lobby/breakfast area and all the rooms look identical from the outside. Writing under Super 8 as that's the one I booked but they're probably the same.

    Was looking for a weekend room in Reno and this new contender popped up on Hotwire with the lowest rate ... it was a dice roll but it ended up paying off. For about $38/nite after tax on Friday/Saturday (in the off-season) the room was better than expected. Clean, good queen bed, looks like it was remodeled fairly recently, microwave and mini-fridge, coffee maker in-room, shampoo provided, very stable and reasonably fast free wi-fi, better cable selection than Motel 6. Continental breakfast in the morning was surprisingly comparable to Comfort Inn, just without the meat/egg items and premade waffles instead of a waffle bar. They have the most inexpensive laundry room I've seen in a while too - $1.25 a load to wash and $1 to dry.

    Location is a big sell if you want cheap food ... not GREAT food, but OK inexpensive food. Biggest thing is 99 Cent Only literally right next door. Carls Jr and their $3 for two huge breakfast biscuits right across the street along with Del Taco. Within a quick walk - Qdoba, Raising Cane's, Taco Smell, Subway, Blind Onion Pizza, a Whole Foods, and the whole Meadowood Mall food court. Also a Big Lots, Trader Joe's and Jack In Crack within a stone's throw.

    Out from the casino madness a bit but still convenient. Just down the street from the Atlantis/Peppermill and about a 10 min. drive or ride on the Rapid gets you downtown to all the rest of the stuff. Except GSR, but lol GSR.

    I'd love to give the place a higher score as I think it's a 4 minimum (especially for the price) in almost every category - room quality and amenities for the money, solid breakfast, good staff, good location, etc. The only issue - and it's not really anyone's fault here - is just that the place is really old and has kinda shonky construction. It's one of those old "motor court" places that was probably built back in the 1950s somewhere. The rooms themselves are all right but between the rooms is kinda a problem. To be fair my stay was very quiet, but that's because the place looked only about 30% occupied and I lucked into a room where my bed wall was up against another room that's out of comission for some reason. The other neighboring wall was a little on the thin side, again I got lucky with a mom and her kid who turned in at a very reasonable hour, but I could hear the kid yelling periodically so if you got some Meth Fueled Humpers or BLAWT BLAWT STEREO BLASTERS next to you it could be a problem. The biggest weakness was a jankity old bathroom vent that apparently was shared with the other bathroom behind you, so whatever you do in the bathroom is broadcast right into the other person's bathroom like it's two restroom stalls next to each other. Kinda gross. And no fan to mask noise. I had to turn the bathtub water on while pitching a deuce for politeness' and privacy sake. Sorry about that, environment. Plumbing was surprisingly awesome for how old the place is though.

    Oh and the other construction issue is that you can't control the temperature in room as it uses one of those old-school water pipe systems. For a mild March it was fine, they had the heat on very lightly and the room was comfy. In June-August I could see it being a problem when its 97 outside and the central cooling isn't cutting it though.

    For June-August when it's ridiculous hot and the place is probably packed, I probably wouldn't try it, odds are it would be hot and really noisy. For the off season with a low rate through Expedia, Hotwire, or any of Wyndham's numerous 15%-20% discounts, it was totally fine for a night or two. Heard from the front desk that they also do a weekly rate of $210 after tax. That's less than the Motel 6, would be a pretty good deal if they still give you breakfast and free wifi on the weekly.

    Four years ago I stayed here for a conference at a rate of 40 per night and it was great. The breakfast was decent. In 2015 I come back and reasonably expect the same thing. Oh was I wrong. The shower is an absolute disaster, anybody taller than Danny DeVito is going to have a terrible time. The door doesn't close properly unless you lock the deadbolt and even then the cold air seeps. The beds have cigarette burns and this is supposed to be a non-smoking room. They still have a TV that belongs to 1992. I mean all of this for 90 bucks? I'm mean seriously. I spent 90 bucks at a hotel near the Grand Canyon and it was 10 times better than this. Also is this a Days Inn or a Super 8. What kind of crossover from hell is this? Also the internet stinks, keeps kicking you off the network.

    It's 8pm, 48 degrees outside, and there is no heat in the room. A sign on the wall recommends asking for a portable heater or extra blankets at the front desk. When I went to ask for a heater, they had "just given out the last one", but they did give me a few blankets. I tried calling Super 8 customer service, but got a recorded message saying to call back during regular business hours. We're very cold, and for $100 a night, we expect to be able to sleep comfortably in the room.

    Update- The next morning, I approached the assistant manager about the lack of heat in the room. She was completely understanding and refunded our money. She honestly could not have been more nice about it. She took the time to explain that the heating and cooling system usually works fine, it is only during transitional weather that it becomes problematic. Because of her, Super 8 Meadow Wood Courtyard gets a 4 instead of a 1.

    We stayed here spur of the moment on a Saturday night because I had accidentally booked my nice hotel night at the Atlantis for the NEXT night. Thanks to the Rodeo in town this was the best of the 3 places left in town that actually had rooms. The room cost me $100 plus tax. i saw they had  a AAA sign but I was told that wasn't available that night. Weird. Well beggars can't be choosy so stay we did.

    The window walls were a bit concerning to me but I didn't really want to make my mom sleep in the car or drive 4 hours to get home so I sucked it up and hoped no scary ax murders were going to break in. Also, that the curtains closed ALL the way.

    I was pretty much exhausted and passed out as soon as my head hit the brick hard puffy pillow. Mom on the other hand said she couldn't even sleep on the extra puffy pillow and debated all night about going out to the car to get a better one that she had brought with her but left in the car.

    I woke up about  7 to the sound of a monkey in the next room. Oh wait, it was just a kid making monkey NOISES. The walls were a bit thin but hey, they were walls. The monkey eventually did his mating call all the way to their car and I rolled over and went back to sleep for a bit.

    Before we left I went to find some ice. While I was waiting for the woman that got there first to finish filling her bags and buckets of ice I notice how nice the pool area was. If you go here when you can actually pick what room you want a room in the court yard might be nice along with a dip in the pool.

    I checked out without any problems but I'm still checking my credit card statement in case that guy didn't really have to take my card and license in the back to make a copy and was running it through his scam machine. That just seemed a bit odd to me. Hopefully I don't get screwed over.

    We stayed here two nights during the MTK holiday weekend so we could attend a wedding. Overall, this is a good motel. I paid about $125 for two nights through the Super 8 website. Luckily I kept my confirmation email because when we checked in they wanted me to sign something that said I was going to be charged around $170 for the two nights. I was told to sign it and she would fix it later. Uh, no thanks. She had no problem reprinting it and I signed for the correct amount. Little did I know...

    We stayed in room in 100 so the rest of the this review is based off of that room, since we've never stayed here before. The room was okay. The blankets are a little thin and the room smelled a bit musty, but nothing we couldn't handle. The TV was so small I though I may need to get my prescription contacts adjusted just so I could watch TV. Luckily we don't watch a lot of TV. The shower was great, especially since my fiancee and I are both 5'11 and it is rare to find a motel where you don't have to take a shower on your knees. The breakfast was decent. Nothing great about it but doable. There are plenty of places around Reno within driving distance where you can get something more if you'd like. Hotel staff seemed friendly enough.

    The not-so-great thing about our experience is that in the end I was overcharged. My fiancee checked us out and didn't bother to check the receipt but when I finally got a chance to look at it they charged my the $170. I had to turn around and go back. Once I showed my confirmation email the guy at the desk fixed the error. Someone really needs to work on the billing system because it doesn't make sense to me.

    All in all, we would stay here again if we needed to.
