You get what you don't pay much for.

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet, walking-distance fast-food: jack in the box etc
Cons: strange people outside
Cons: No smoking room/hotel but smelled of it inside. Cigarette holes in sheets. Stained pillow cases. No conditioner. No iron. Shower temperature fluctuated at times. Inconveniently placed outlets. When walked out into neighborhood to eat some food, passed by a pros*itute, random person sitting on a sofa in the hotel parking lot for several hours. Pros: Free samples of Breathe-right strips, garnier new anti-dandruff shampoo, craisins, toothpaste. Also included hotel soap/cups. Free wifi. (I hope it was free). High pressure shower (may have been painful to others). Changed our towels. Cable TV available with mini-fridge. Reading lamps near beds as well as room lighting--not very bright. Walking distance: gas station, Jack in the Box, Taco Bell, McDonald's etc.

BEWARE

Even though I had booked the room a month ahead of time on travel agency, when I arrived the front desk clerk told me that the computer had had a ""glitch"" and that there were no rooms available. Since this occured on a high-demand weekend (Reno Air Races, Bowling Tournament, etc...) my assumption is that their computer liked the rates that those people were willing to pay better than the low rate I booked online. The clerk was apologetic and was helpful in locating me a nearby, but inferior room. NEVER AGAIN.

Just as a starting point the motel changed hands in May of 2008. Many problems have been addressed since then and we continue to upgrade the property. Early on it faced many personnel and infrastructure problems, but from day one we have strived to make the Rose better and more enjoyable for our guests.

Never again

The rooms are moderate clean, the motel staff is not motivated for good service and the location is very loud by night.

Worst Motel I've Ever (Almost) Stayed At

The room we were initially given, two hours after the specified check-in time, was filthy, and looked like there had been a large brawl going on for several days. There was food trash, beer bottles, and blood soaked towels everywhere. The second room, also supposedly a non-smoking room, smelled like a chain smoker had stayed there for a week.
