We have stayed here as a couple twice, both times on holiday weekends (Memorial Day and Labor Day). Part of the reason we stayed at this particular hotel/casino was because they still had rooms available on short notice for holiday weekends.
The basic rooms are just that: basic. They are a good value for the room rate in a tourist town like Reno. They are clean, but plain. No granite countertops or down pillows here. The bed was comfortable and the linens were always clean. Could have used a few more pillows (they were small). No coffeemaker, fridge, or microwave in the room. Cleaning staff were efficient.
There is always a line at registration, but they had every station staffed and their front desk staff were efficient.
The pool area was nice but not super fancy. The pool itself was kept sparkling and clean. They have a bar in the pool area that serves alcohol. No lifeguards on duty. Plenty of deck chairs and a few cabanas. Would be improved by having some music playing. There is a volleyball area but we never saw it in use.
The casino itself is definitely outdated when compared to the Silver Legacy or Harrah's. Dim, the ceiling is mirrored, layout is a little strange. They have CRT (non-flatscreen) tvs throughout the place playing a strange mix of 80s and 90s music videos. Not a bad casino, but it just feld...odd and outdated.
