My daughter is a student at the University of Nevada. I have stayed at several other hotels in Reno but had been reluctant to stay at Circus Circus. When I booked this trip the other nearby hotels were at least twice the price so I took a chance with Circus Circus. I was pleasantly surprised. My room was clean and... More

The old adage "You get what you pay for" may apply here. The rates are possibly the lowest in Reno for a big Casino hotel. But 3 years ago, for the same price, you could get a very clean, nicely decorated room or suite. The price may still be low, but the rooms are becoming shabby (Sky Tower) and our... More

We really enjoyed our stay. Yes the room could use an update but overall very clean and comfortable. The a/c's ran a lot so maybe if they were quieter would be a good thing especially when watching TV, just saying

Pro: Clean Affordable Express checkout option was very convenient. Con: Room appears dated and almost all furniture had scratches and marks on them. The large (42"?) flat screen TV would've been nice had it functioned properly. AC unit was very loud and kept me up most of the night. I guess they are encouraging me to go to the casino... More

The service we experienced was very good and the room was great I think Reno is as good as Vegas just less crowds. The location & amenities was a plus. The things we liked best was it was so easy to check in.

Circus Circus is in the hear of Reno and connected to other casinos, so it can be tricky knowing which one you are in! The rooms are well sized, clean and comfortable. Checking in and out was very easy. The staff were very obliging when I requested a room change. The casino is lively and there are quite a few... More
