I made a late check-in reservation for a King Bed Non-Smoking room at the Peppermill Hotel and Casino in Reno, Nevada last month for my husband's Dental check-up the following day. It was a late check-in because we left Round Mountain after my husband got off work from a 12-hour shift.
It was past 09:00 o'clock in the evening when we checked-in. The girl at the front desk informed me that she upgraded my room for the SAME rate because she already have sold all King Bed Non-Smoking rooms. I was like, ""Okay, as long as I don't have to pay more".
I remember when I paid for an upgrade room at the Atlantis Hotel and Casino, also in Reno, Nevada, I was very upset because it was like a downgrade instead. Seriously. The room was smaller and the shower curtain looked old and nasty. I swear, their regular rooms which we have had stayed in the past were so much better. I even called the front desk to make sure it was really an upgrade. The reason why I upgraded it because hubby was too tired to wait for 3:00 o'clock, which is the check-in time, we arrived in the hotel past 1:00 o'clock that day. The guy at the front told me we can get a room right away if I will upgrade it but I have to pay $25 or $30 more (I forgot the exact amount). So I went ahead and paid more because I want my husband to get a rest and be comfortable after a long drive. It was a bad decision.
Anyway, I was not really expecting a nice room after that experience. I just wanted to have a place to stay for the night.
When I opened the room, I was stunned.
