No, I saw some $39 / night on there website. +10/night in resort fee/Reno Tax (+ plus probably other taxes)

Hotels use the same type of "load / yield " management software the airlines use to fill there beds and set the per/night price.

If they can put a body in the bed, its a "loss" leader to get the body into the casino to make the money.

So, since you asked if they left off a zero, are you suggesting that the rate should be $420 a night? Or did you mean to suggest that it should be $4.20 a night?

$42 seems about right to me.

Well ... sounds like a great deal, I'm going to go read reviews now. I'll be coming to Nevada for the first time, and thought I would have to pay very high prices for hotels, but this would be great, if the room is cool.

Thanks for the info.

Well, when I first looked at the rooms, they looked like $200-300 rooms, and being in Reno, yes, I thought they would be at that price range. I was shocked to see the $40.00 deals

NO, I would NOT want them to be $400.

Priceline is your friend if you want to score a good deal. Just know what you're doing before using it, though. Betterbidding.com may help.

I wouldn't call this a great deal since this rate is about right for the hotel.

42 for El Dorado is a good deal, but it is not that uncommon, I've seen it before plenty of times. The reason for low rate is simple- end of ski season, no holidays and demand is down. Also casino hotels don't care how low the hotel is-they will make money off you when you gamble, when you buy drinks, food, the buffet, souvenirs, etc etc.

Reno has awesome deals on hotels I think. We picked up a nice suite at the Grand Sierra for a song in February, for my birthday.

Several months of the year, you can get that room for $29-39 / night Sunday - Thursday. It is a good rate, not a great rate.

Eldorado is pretty decent but some of the rooms are ready to be remodeled or upgraded.

By the way, plan to add in a $7 PER NIGHT resort fee.


===============================

One more thing. In general, the BEST deals in Reno are on the websites or the hundreds of e-mails that are sent out to casino card holders. Priceline/Hotwire rates are generally NOT the cheapest.
