Metro Carwash is something of a hybrid. Your car gets run through an automatic wash with attendants that cleans the outside, but you've got to do the vacuuming yourself. Detailing is available, so you can hire out the interior cleaning if you wish.

4991 Longley Ln., Reno, NV 89502. Corner of Longley & E. Peckham Lane.
