The day before we arrived, I got an email that advertised an upgraded/refreshed room- and I should have paid extra for that. I really just felt like the hotel was run-down and stale.

Circus Circus in Reno is pretty boring. Smack in the middle of downtown next to pawn shops and liquor stores. The rooms are ok, nothing to smile about, the bathroom was clean and stocked up. The hotel itself is pretty rundown. It has a tram that runs from one building to the other. Had a bit of a problem finding... More

Friendly folks - good times. Rooms were clean, all staff were very friendly. I'd choose this over Vegas in a heartbeat. The restaurants were exceptional. There was really no reason to leave the property, due to the number of places to go and quality of those places.

The service was outstanding and our rooms were wonderful. We had a suite with adjoining room. Everything was clean and the beds were comfy! We ate at the Americana - food and service outstanding. The casinos weren't smokey at all - very enjoyable trip.

Great rooms. Very clean and quiet. Great rate during the week. Can't beat it! Beds very, very comfortable. Good wifi. Great choice of restaurants, etc. Very convenient location (freeway close). Great variety of gaming options. Super friendly and helpful staff. Great option for late checkout. Numerous options to checkout without going down to the lobby. Parking was super as well.

Great room for the money. Very large, quiet, and great Wi-Fi. A really nice hotel and close to everything. McDonalds within walking distance. If you are going to bowling stadium you can go out front door to McDonalds and then on to the bowling stadium. Much cheaper than all the other hotels even with there supposed discount.

we booked this hotel for Hot August Nights and had a good time here, hotel was clean + tidy with a shuttle service to and from the airport and it was a cheap cab ride away from everything we needed to get to, plus at night the car cruising was right outside.
