“Central location to three casino's”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We didn't stay here, but we were here, in the casino, a lot. We watched football on Sunday at the sports bar. Prices were reasonable. Hot dog stand set up, they were good, and pop corn at the bar. And good views of all the tv's. While we were there we didn't have trouble getting a table, but it. Was full during the games. We also went to a little coffee shop on second floor outside the buffet. Good coffee and pastry, and reasonable prices. You could walk to the the Silver Legacy and Circus Circus through a common area, with restaurants, more slot machines, arcades, and shops. That was a nice area. We did find a food place near Circus Circus arcade that sold sandwiches, ice cream, pastries, pop corn, hot dogs, etc. we liked this place. Great ice cream too! This was a good find, since there weren't any other places like it. Especially in Harrah's where we stayed....just a quinsy and Starbucks.

CON: The one thing that was horrible is that there was a very very very strong odor in part of the casino on the far side of the escalator. It was like someone spilled Lysol or something similar all over the floor and left it there. That kept us from even considering sitting to gamble. What was that for. The smell was overwhelming. And not a pleasant smell, not sure how anyone could have stayed in that area. When you had to use escalator, you couldn't escape it. That kept me from this place very good rating.

“Reno's Finest”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

The Eldorado Hotel and Casino in Reno, Nevada continues to be the shining jewel in what Reno has to offer. Yes, it has a fabulous casino with all the latest slots and table games, but there's so much more it has to offer. Restaurants abound in this hotel complex. whether you want the simplest of meals to fine dining, the Eldorado has it. My favorite has always been La Strada and having dinner there on our last trip proved no different. Expensive, but great food, friendly staff and a really nice ambience. The Brew Pub is also a great restaurant to get a reasonably priced meal. Again, friendly staff and an opportunity to watch the beer flow by as its made.
The casino itself is quite large, but once you become familiar with the layout, it's very easy to get around. No guarantees on the slots, but lots of the latest machines.
This past trip we did not go and see the entertainment at the Eldorado, but know from past experience, that they have very good acts.
If you're planning a trip to Reno, the Eldorado Hotel/Casino is a must stop.

“Slots are tight”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Enough said right? Well, Slots have been tight in Nevada since the economic downturn 5 years ago. We like Jackpot party, but we haven't had a satisfying bonus round I 5 years.

“Nice Casino with Extras”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

The casino at Eldorado offers a lot of options, is laid out well and was 'kind' to us. There is also a nice buffet, café and other restaurants on the second level. The house show 'Grease' isn't a big scale production, but is a 'fun' evening and worth the price.

“Pretty loud but loose slots.”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

We showed up at 2am it was pretty loud but we both won at slots. Also there is a covered walkway all the way to circus circus 2 blocks away with lots of shopping, displays and restaurants
