“25th Anniversary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Best hotel in Reno for the money and the best location. The staff are top notch and friendly. Were going to stay at the Peppermill but the price was four times higher and very disappointed in the reservation staff. Circus Circus is very clean and there is plenty to do without leaving the hotel. The Eldorado and the Silver Legacy are attached so you have lots of eating choices and entertainment.

Good clean rooms at bargain prices. Kids friendly enviroment. Good location with easy access to other parts of town. It's worth the drive to Reno after a day of snow games to stay over night. I think they even offer stay rooms/kennel for dogs since I saw the camera pictures of dogs on hotel TV for owners to check on their pet. This is great if I had known before. I'll check with the hotel for the next time.

Our non-smoking room had no issues with residual smokey smell, room was big and clean, bathroom good, showerhead a little low (i'm 5'9 and it hit my neck). Overall, very pleased!!!!! We were worried about the bad reviews, but really had nothing bad to say about this place. They even checked us in early at noon at no additional charge!!!!!! Shuttle was on time in the morning to the airport. Center of the action in town-great place and will visit again!

The mini suite in the casino tower was awesome and so easy to get to. Really loved the jacuzzi tub. I am a regular visitor to the Circus Curcus and will try to get the same room in the casino tower the next time I visit. I had a great time and it was so easy to get around from the room and back to the room.

First time I went to Circus Circus hotel in Reno was in 2009, my second time was this month (January, 2013). The fact that I went back to Reno and stayed in the same hotel means that I like the city and I like the place. Yes, I sure do - for the room tariff that it offers, Circus Circus Hotel is a great casino hotel to stay!

It has big sized rooms, quite clean and neatly maintained. During the cold winter, the room temperature can be maintained at comfortable levels. The rooms are not noisy and if you wish to sleep and give those slot machines a miss - then you can do that quite comfortably without being disturbed.

This hotel offers the best fun options for kids and this is a big advantage for those who come with family with the young ones.

Although I am not a big fan of the casino at Circus Circus, but the easy access to casinos at Silver Legacy and El Dorado hotels makes up for it. All three casinos are very well connected. So if Lady Luck doesn't smile at one place, it is very easy to try another one. Of course one can get out and try other casinos on the strip too.

Circus Circus hotel also hosts quite several good restaurants, so eating out will be a nice experience out there. I found the food prices very reasonable and quality to be great.

There are pubs, night clubs around. So there is more to this place than just gambling.

So if you love gambling, love the night and the life that comes with it, love cities like Reno, Circus Circus hotel is a great option for you. You get rooms at a great price and along with that get easy access to 3 different casinos, great pubs, night clubs and great eat outs.

I have been there twice and would love to go back when I get a chance. I will surely recommend this hotel to others.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms at higher floors, the view from the window will be awesome.

Over a decade ago I decided to give Circus Reno a try during my ski vacation to Lake Tahoe. I was pleasantly surprised at the value for $ I received. Every year when I return I have the same opinion. The rooms are quite large, and very well maintained - the carpet vibrantly clean and unstained. In the past six months I've stayed in hotels from CA to AZ to MA to VA to NY to PA to MI; some cheap, some pretty pricey, the best value for $ was Circus Reno.

The shows are fun but they downsized so there's one worker for two games so its a bit much waiting to get to play. Took the kids there to play after about an hour they were bored. But fun while it lasted!!
