WOW, I am really impressed with the service they provide. The Hotel service was great, the atmosphere was awesome, and the food was great. I would reccomend this place to anyone who loves penny machines and good times. It's in a great location down town right by the river and street festivals. Definately the best bang for your buck!

Cal Neva is by far the best deal in Reno. The hotel rates are reasonable, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff is the most friendly that I have encountered anywhere. The casino also have great value, with liberal slot machines, $3 blackjack, $4.95 Steak and Fries, and staff that will go out of their way to help.... More

A great place to gamble, eat (best bang for your buck in Reno is the Top Deck Rest. and the hidden gem is the Steak and Pasta Shoppe), drink, sing (yes they have karaoke),stay, bet sports, weekend beer pong tournaments, anything you could ask...Yes the Neva is a older property but if you looking...

I really don't care what anyone else says. This place rocked! First of all, the hotel was reasonably priced. The rooms were clean and the staff was pleasant and helpful. John - presumably the hotel manager - was very helpful and accessible all weekend long. The casino though was the best reason for staying here. $1 beers and $3 blackjack?... More

Looks shady....yes. Interesting characters in the casino....yes. A bit run down....absolutely. Yet this place was the hidden gem in the Reno area. Right across the street from Harrahs, this casino has the best beer price in town! $1 gets you a tall boy budlight. Thats right a $1! The slots are pretty loose too. I didn't win big, but I... More

Take a 50s hotel, throw in a ton of smoke and dirt, mix in the worst of the worst that Reno has to offer and you have Cal Neva. This place is so nasty and the service is lacking. Restrooms are in terrible shape. There is no possible way that these guys pass any inspection. Stay as far away as... More

Despite Reno experiencing a great reduction in tourism Cal Neva has made improvements. Last time we were here one of the bed frames were broken. When we mentioned this to maintenance it wasn't viewed as any thing on their fix in the near future list. That was a year ago. This time the beds were comfortable. Coffee maker, very quite... More

Our room was broken into by theifs. All of our money and cell phones and personal property was stolen. Casino risk management Ashley farmer is saying the hotel is not responsible. I actually caught a woman in our room and held her there until police came. Do not stay here
