We liked El Mono Hotel very much. It has a coffee shop where they serve really good coffee and backing goods. Also great smoothies and breakfast sandwiches. Everything was clean and all the stuff very friendly. Also the pricing rates for the rooms are fair.

Love this place. Nice simple clean rooms. Friendly helpful staff. Best coffee in town. Easy to book on-line. Perfect for me completing a hike and needing a place to stay before catching the bus back to the Reno Airport. It’s just about perfect.

this is a very rural quaint town and you will be okay. family of five, well. you will all have to share. this is the cutest place to stay in town and i say do it. just be mindful that you all have to share the bathroom.

I think this question is meant for the motel staff...not the Trip Advisor members. I reserved this motel online: google 'El Mono motel".
