    My wife and i stayed at Independence Inn while traveling to the Reno area. The inn is small, well kept, neat and clean. Jim's pride of ownership shows. Best part-- the price. Very reasonable. You won't be disappointed.

    I don't know, this is a motel with only about 10 rooms, the shower was a walk in and all rooms are first floor. FYI the parking lot is gravel and wheel chair might be difficult to maneuver.
