Reno - Hotels and Hotel/Casinos

Each year, the Reno-Sparks area welcomes tens of thousands of burners en route to and from Black Rock City. A regular tourist destination year-round, there are plenty of places in the region to dust off, grab a shower, lounge at a pool, gobble some food, maybe gamble, dance or catch some entertainment, and lay your head down on a real bed for a night. We particularly recommend checking beforehand on parking availability for RV’s and other large spaceships.

The lodging options listed below are relatively popular among burners for their location, amenities and hospitality. Some even offer special rates for burners (note room taxes also generally apply). Most also have restaurants, gaming, entertainment and other amenities. Each listing is linked to the shopping hub wherein it is located so you can see if its along your trek and what else is nearby. Find further info on these and many other places to stay, as well as info on other destinations, activities, and events in the region here, thanks to the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors AuthorityAs said, hotels and motels abound, so for the bigger picture of the options available to you, also check out the Yellow Book – Reno Hotels.

We also include some nice RV Parks and campgrounds if you want to go that route, as well as some places to get a shower after life on the playa and before you board your plane.

Finally, a few important reminders wherever you’re staying:

  • Please conduct yourself appropriately and politely.
  • Do not smoke in non-smoking rooms.
  • Do not move furniture around the property.
  • Do not leave your trash unless it is at an authorized and approved location.
