reno motels

Plan to fly in. Would like some info, from experience, on motels.
Will have a rented vehicle.
Nothing fancy - just clean and cheap.

Sands has always been kind to me. Peppermill if you want fancier.

It will be interesting to see if The Sands raises their rates. It’s undergoing Major renovation.

How cheap is cheap?

Just googled Sands rates for late aug-labor day. Yes, rates have gone up, a lot
Oh my god, it's HUGE!

I've always stayed at the Courtyard Marriott using credit card points. If you're spending real dollars, this will cost more. They are always extremely accommodating. I ship boxes ahead to the hotel and they hold them for me. I've also done will call boxes to be picked up by UPS after the burn. They will cheerfully provide a hose to fill water tanks in RV's and allow the use of their dumpster on the way home. All these things have real value and may make this type of hotel a better option. It's also a smaller hotel, so I can easily bring my bags and supplies in and out of the hotel as needed. 8)

I know some motels will book up due to 10,000+ burners flying in.
How soon do you book your pre/post burn motel?

I don't know that 2021 (if there is indeed a burn) will be like other years.
I'm a fan of motel 8 and the like.
