We made this reservation on the road during a roadtrip from San Francisco back to Seattle. The room was very nice but they do not provide you with any blankets and the air conditioner was on high so a very chilly night it was. yes, you need a blanket even in July. Bed sheets were very crisp and clean. The... More

Room was clean and up to our expectations. Was there for the USBC Bowling Tournament. Enjoyed our stay. Walked around other connected hotel casinos, and we believe the El Dorado was the best choice for our stay. (We are not gamblers, however). Security guard standing in the Main Floor elevator area was comforting, but would like to believe it wasn't... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the El Dorado. They automatically upgraded us to a higher quality room from the junior suite we had reserved. The room we received was quite large and comfortable but; the bathroom was quite odd, the toilet area seemed as if it was added almost as an afterthought and was quite tiny... More

stayed three days at the el dorado hotel in Reno. Bed was super cozy!!! But because we only paid $50/night I didn't expect too much from the hotel. No balcony or opening windows, and view was the top of another building with air conditioners and such in sight. But we stayed on the same floor of the pool and enjoyed... More

We arrived without reservations, but were helped within moments of arriving at the front desk (although I have to admit, being in Reno, everything was a little overwhelming) - we received very personalized service, room offerings & rates were extensive, but the staff helped us select a room to fit our needs... almost perfectly. Very clean, more spacious than described... More

Splurge for the spa room. Absolutely wonderful view. Reno is much more real than Vegas. Visit the car museum. At the El Dorado the buffet is fantastic with no short cuts. Try the mac n cheese and the breakfast bar.

Katie and Raquel at the gold room were amazingly nice and very good bartenders. The service I received was above and beyond what I would ever have hopes for. Coming back for my next stay because of them.

Hotel was great and the weather was perfect. Good location for getting out and walking to other casinos and the car museum. Food was awesome make sure you check out Brews Brothers. Rented a car and drove around Lake Tahoe and then to Virginia City.

This is a Casino Hotel in downtown Reno. We stayed there because it was a basic good room and $100 less than the hotel we'd stayed at in Winnemucca, for a very similar room. Breakfast is not included here, but the buffett at the hotel is excellent; breakfast is ok, but if you can stay for lunch or dinner, it's... More
