Where to stay in Reno

I have never been to Reno and can't decide if we should stay at the Eldorado or Silver Legacy. If anyone has any advice on where to stay either at those two hotels or somewhere else on the stip, Comfortable beds are a major plus. I would really appreciate some feedback. Thanks

If you stay at the Legacy try & get a corner room as others are mostly on the small side. Of the two it's a toss up. Downtown we prefer Harrahs for over all location, comfort & price. The often room INTERNET specials of $59 early/mid week nights. Near river walk, theaters & other attractions. However in the winter prefer the Nugget in Sparks due to it's great pool/spa.

Thanks Peddler. I think I will take your advice and look into Harrahs. I really want a comfortable bed as I read that some hotels in Reno have really bad beds. Kind of have a sensitive back.

One more question you might be able to answer: Do you know where's the best sports book?

Well if you are deciding between the Silver Legacy and Eldorado, the rooms are way better at the Eldorado.

As for the Sports Book, The Peppermill has been undergoing an expansion and has a killer sportsbook. Very Vegas like. Very Cool! They are a mile or so away from the main casino area. I stay there all the time and love it!

from the Peppermill site:

Thanks Alikeith. I have also heard good things about the Peppermill but it seems off the beaten track a bit. Not having ever been to Reno I may be off base. I have been looking into Harrahs and it looks good. Is the Peppermill as good of an area as the downtown casinos? PM sports book looks amazing. Thanks again.

It really is not that far off the beaten path. It is only about a 5-10 minute drive to the other casinos.

The Peppermill is on S virginia street near the atlantis. Its just on a major roadway. Smack in the middle of your restraunts, gas stations, strip malls ect.

I forgot to say, it may be a better area in actuallity. Some people complain of panhandlers and what not in the downtown area. I have never had any issues persoanlly.

The Peppermill has excellent rooms * we stay there on occasion but is a bit isolated with even the Atlantis a bit of a"Hike". I personally like downtown in the summer especially with the river walk, the state museum, places like Lois Basque resturant, movies, & other attractions.

For first time visitor I would definitely recommend downtown in any of the three hotels we have discussed.

Thanks to both of you, Peddler and Alikeith, for the valuable info. Peppermill looks like a better hotel/casino but as a first timer we are going to book at Harrahs. I went back and forth on the two for a while. We will definetely take a trip to P-Mill's sports book as it should be quite the experience. Appreciate your help and will let you know how the trip was.

I would second the Peppermill's sports book. I also had the opportunity to see one of the rooms in their new tower today and it was absolutely amazing!

The Grand Sierra, although also a little off the beaten path, has a very good sports book as well, but in my opinion, the Peppermill is a little better. The deli in the Peppermill's sports book also gets rave reviews...
