The room was enormous and tastefully decorated. When we first opened the door to room 1983 we were both taken aback as we didn't expect as large a room and a room as well appointed as this one was. Then there was the view; exceptional. They were happy to accommodate our request for the highest available room and were extremely... More

Very pleasantly surprised since I had not been to this hotel in 20 years and remember it being overcrowded and noisy. We stayed one night at the end of our week-long road trip and were very happy to be able to get a room in the main building which saved us the trouble of carrying our bags from the parking... More

All the basic amenities were provided and Room service was awesome. And it is a safest place also to stay. Lot of games and I really enjoyed the circus program for 5 minutes. Parking was little confusing to me. But they have enormous parking space. Good.

My family and I love Circus Circus. The kids have a blast while the grown ups get to have fun, too. 5 star service without the luxury price tags. Beautiful rooms with great views. Can't wait to go back!

I should have known better… you get what you pay for. Originally I had plans to stay at the GSR but since my son was with me I thought I’d change my reservation to the Circus Circus. What a debacle… • This is an OLD property that has had minimal, if any updates to stay current. • Unless you’re in... More

Not a bad pace to stay for the money. However its old and it shows. The desk clerks were not very helpful and it was confusing at the front desk. Here comes the kicker...our room had some blood on the bathroom wall.. I called the front desk and the seemed indifferent...but it was kinda freaky to tell you the truth.... More

We have stayed at Circus Circus Reno many times. It is conveniently located to almost everything in Reno, has nice, clean rooms. It also has many restaurants with good food, and a midway/carnival for kids and adults alike.

We recently stayed at the Circus Circus in Reno, Nevada. We have stayed here before so we have our favorite building. . We like to stay at the Sky Tower since most of their rooms are non smoking and the hallways don't usually reap from the smell of smoke. . The rooms are always very clean and the maids are... More

They need to upgrade the matresses, otherwise 5 stars. About $60 for the deluxe tower room, valet parking, right next to the indoor walkway that connects downtown Reno. Access to food, casinos, shows, and the Circus Circus midway. No need to look elsewhere in my opinion; they have everything you need.
