Stay at none of them- your expectation of being backed off in a SD game is too high and you don't want to be troubled by being jerked out of your room or anything like that. If you have Harrah's status, get a comp room at Harrah's Reno and give them a little gentle play so you get invited back, or stay at the Econolodge on Wells Ave. or any suitable alternative.
Single deck is an art in itself- it's so easy to get an advantage and the hard part is being allowed to play. One of the few opportunities where cover play is really important.
I was in Reno not very long ago trying to hone my counting skills. There is exactly 1 playable table at Harrah's Reno, and it's not even that great. SD, D 10/11 only, H17. All the rest are horrible - restricted doubling on double deck (8-11 only, no DAS), and 6:5 SD, etc. They even had the balls to put out an 8 deck, H17, 6:5, no surrender game, which I believe is the single worst blackjack game I have ever seen anywhere in the world. Not surprisingly, for the few hours I was there, the game was almost always full (it was right across from the playable SD table, I could see it).
If your top bet is $200 or less, you should hit up Western Village or Rail City during busy hours, and you'll be fine. The locals are all there playing for the Royal Match. There is little game supervision (especially at Rail City).
Here is a list of all known DOA SD games in Reno:
John Ascuaga's Nugget - (only on $25+ tables - $1,000 max), well supervised unless they are busy
Western Village - table limits $3-$200 - busy with locals, supervision is below average
Rail City - table limits $3-$200 - plop city, crowded games, little heat, even with $100+ action
Sienna -$5 to $1000, but they are rarely busy so heat will be on
Boomtown - $3 to $200 - again not very busy, but not well supervised either
Enjoy. All the nicer places with high limits have gotten rid of SD DOA, even in their high limit areas. Stay at Atlantis (by far nicer and newer than Grand Sierra) and play at any of the above places.
