Priceline - Reno

I have never used Priceline and need a room close to the airport for an early morning flight. Am I risking it ? I can't tell from the map how many miles out the airport zone extends. any one had good luck in Reno (with PL- not the casinos)
thanks!

The Airport zone is very large and covers all of south reno. I use PL all the time but personally wouldn't bother for this one. I'd just book one of the airport area hotels- you can usually get pretty good rates.

Meant to add -- you'll get more response if you post on the USA forum. This one is really more for just general travel tips, not destination-specific questions.

Have you checked out biddingfortravel.com? It's worth a look, I've used PL for years and can't think of a time when I've been disappointed. There have been times when I've been out of center but that doesn't bother me at all.

LSky: The problem w/ Reno airport - bft has very little activity in the zone. Just booking through the various hotels would ensure being near the airport and probably not cost much more than PL.

Ah, then the OP would save on transportation costs and time. Hopefully, bwg took your advice.

Hotwire is a good resource since you at least can make sure you get a hotel with a shuttle to the airport. I have been more than happy with places I get on Hotwire.
