I know the feeling it makes my skin crawl. I made the mistake of
signing on for a slot tournament there once! My biggest PO was the
Drunk across the hall that got tossed out of his room by his shack job.
She wouldn't let him back in, so he spent the night going up and down
the halls banging on doors, wanting a place to sleep. After 3 calls to
security and no response I gave up and turned the TV on as loud as
I could stand and tried to sleep. He never banged on my door, I guess
he knew my window opened over the alley, several story's from the
ground! Amazing how a drunk knows that??

Great report, fun to read. I really appreciate the pix of the old motel signs. I once rented a car JUST to drive 4th Ave and take photos. Some really mid century examples. Love the cheesy Mardi Gras one. Thanks again!

Thanks for the entertaining and colorful report, Mjames. Sounds like you had way too much fun and not enough sleep - Perfect!

Oh yeah, about the links thing - you now owe me two computers (not that I'm counting or anything).

Great trip report mjames! You really know how to capture the details, no doubt.

I totally hear you about the "property fascination." Gotta admit I'm the same way about the Cal Neva and Harrah's.

It's hilarious there's mention of the "guy in the ad". Based on some TripAdvisor and Yelp reviews I've seen, some people actually complained about one particular ad that showed a couple checking in to the hotel. He was both the man and the woman! haha

The motel sign pics are awesome. I'm regretting not taking any more during my time there. I think it would be awesome for Reno to someday set up a sign graveyard similar to the one in Vegas to keep this nostalgia alive in the future.

Very interesting lounge in the bowling stadium, for sure.

By chance, was the $200 hit you got on the Nevadan the one on the outer part of "the circle?" If so, I think I recognized it, as that was my top hitter. I call her "blue face!"

I always wondered about that jalapeņo popper sandwich. Thanks for the heads up!
