Nevada: Town House Motor Lodge becomes latest Reno motel demolished by Jacobs Entertainment Jenny Kane, Reno Gazette Journal · February 22, 2021 at 4:13 pm The Town House Motor Lodge was in “complete disrepair” before it was demolished last week, according to the building owner, Jacobs Entertainment. Still, some affordable housing advocates are bemoaning the loss of yet another option for last-resort affordable housing. “We’re in a housing shortage, and he’s not gone vertical on one property,” said Reno City Councilwoman Jenny Brekhus of Jacobs Entertainment CEO Jeff Jacobs. “He’s got gaming properties, he’s reinvesting in those. What else he’s got is a whole lot of vacant land. Results speak for themselves.” Brekhus estimates that, through the razing of multiple motels in the area, Jacobs Entertainment has eliminated about 1,400 units and 24 acres of affordable housing.
