Slept for 7 hours straight

by mackerous (September, 2012)


Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside
Pros: Very comfortable seating/bed by baggage claim
Cons: No food at night, though I didn't look too hard.


By the baggage claim there are large, padded square-U shaped seats where I slept. I'm 6'1, 225lbs and easily fit on it with room to spare. I slept for 7 hours straight, amazing. Bathroom nearby. No food landside was open late that I found, but I was able to eat before it closed luckily.

Pretty bad

by CarolaLSB (April, 2011)


Pros: Staff was (mostly) helpful.
Cons: Closes during night.


We had to spend the night in this airport. It was one of the worst nights ever. The airport closes during the night, everything closes. We arrived there from Phoenix, AZ at 11.30pm. Every place in the food court was closed. We were starved, had been flying all day. We had to take a cab to a nearby 7-11 to get some food and beverage. The counters were closed. Lights out mostly everywhere. At 1am, they closed the bathrooms until 6am. The baggage claim area is just plain sad. I got there via US Airways (one of the worst airlines, in my experience) and left in a Delta flight. I was on a J1 visa, and the woman at the Delta counter thought the visa was expired (regulation on that type of visa had changed recently). She started saying I was going to be deported, and then calling a manager. I was in tears, my visa was not expired, and I could not continued >>

Actually may have slept 2 straight hours:)

Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: padded flat surface, nice looking airport,
Cons: nosy staff member, slot machines and noises everywhere


So there's definitely a few firsts here, good and bad. I'm definitely going to have to give a thumbs down for getting close to setting off a small scale heart attack in me. I've never had anyone bother me at an airport while lounging around for hours on end so I got kind of worried when a cleaner started asking me questions about why I wasn't getting on the last plane and talking about the airport closing. Eventually, he said the land-side was open but the air-side would close so I moved over to the baggage claim area (though I still suspect I would have been fine on the other side and he just needed me out of the way while he swept, but don't take my word for it). The baggage claim area was disappointing at first especially in terms of having adapters by chairs so I could get work done but soon found a good spot. The would have to be t continued >>

Ski bum paradise

Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside


I got in at midnight, and planned to take the South Tahoe Express bus at 8:30am, to get me on the slopes by 10am, and I thought this made a hotel/motel not worth it. There were about 10 others that must have felt the same way, lots of people were sleeping around next to their snowboard bags. The padded seats at the end of the baggage claim carousels looked like pretty good accommodations, but I slept on the floor for some reason. The cleaning guy was mostly finished by midnight. The worst thing in my opinion was the constant infomercial about local attractions that played until 12:30am and started up again at 5am. I brought earplugs, but it still was a bother. Didn't notice any security announcements. At 6am I went to buy discount Heavenly lift tickets at Savemart. Of course I didn't want to bring all my stuff on the mile long continued >>
