We decided to take a trip to Reno and Virginia City for my birthday. We don't do a lot of gambling so we planned to do some site seeing resulting in our spending only a little time at the hotel. In any case, we reserved a room in the tower for two nights. When we arrived on a Saturday evening, the line to register was LONG... If you're a VIP (high roller) you get special treatment, of course, but as I said we don't gamble much, so we waited with the masses... About 20 to 30 minutes to get to the front of the line and check in. As others have commented upon, there was a flight of stairs one needed to maneuver to get to the tram/shuttle for transport to the tower. Once upon a time, the lobby area of the tower used to be a small casino with some gaming tables and slot machines - with the introduction of gaming at Indian casinos in California, those days are long gone, and so is the attention to customer service and satisfaction. Not all of the elevators in the tower were operating which made them quite crowded at times. As far as the room goes, I was quite happy. It appeared to have been refurbished rather recently. Clean carpet, bedding, wallpaper, furniture, etc. There was a small coffee maker, toiletries, and internet access was provided. The housekeeping service in this particular room was above average for Reno. I must say I was pretty happy with the guest room; the rest of the facility; not so much. All in all, it was inexpensive and I would do it again if I had reason to visit the area.
