I was a bit worried about staying at Circus Circus after reading a few if the reviews. I'm happy to say that we had a nice weekend and found the staff to be fast, competent and professional. Our room was spotless and the bathroom was large, smelled of bleach and had nice fixtures and tile floor. We have stayed at The Silver Legacy and even though the rooms are a bit more updated, the set-up at Circus Circus is easier and the staff seem more competent. Each request we had, from a non-smoking room, certain section of the hotel, floor of our room, to a quick check-out was handled professionally by the staff. We will defiantly stay at Circus Circus again because of the ease we experienced.

Made a last minute reservation online and was pleasantly surprised. The bed was very comfortable and the room was nice. Cons: room smelled like smoke covered up by deodorizer; have to carry luggage up two small flights of stairs to reach shuttle - no elevators. Despite these two small problems, I would stay there again.

My wife and I recently stayed at Circus Circus Reno. The hotel is in needed of renovation. It is an older hotel and just needs to be spruced up a bit. The decor is out of date and everything looks like it has passed it's useful life.

That being said, the staff was great. Everyone we were in contact with did their best to be helpful and friendly. They are really trying.

They have a huge midway/arcade for the kids.

So, if you are looking for an inexpensive stay with service minded staff, this is the place.

We were in town for the world of wrestling. Our club had about 20 kids and there familys the hotel was lots of fun for the kids what we saved per night for the hotel the kids spent in the arcade. The rooms were clean and quiet and had a nice view of the mountains. I will stay here again next year if we come again.

First went here 25+ years ago with 5 year old daughter. This time with 5 year old granddaughter and her mother. Still a wonderous event for children. Granddaughter declared it the best hotel she has ever been in. This from a little girl who has been to Disneyland twice and spent a week at a Westin resort on Maui. The magic is still there. Our room was average, 3 star hotel. All the staff from the casino to the front desk were friendly and helpful. The Americana Cafe was forgettable. Dos Geckos was good. The Steakhouse at Circus is what you would expect at a first class hotel dining room. The ambiance was nice and the food was wonderful. I really did not expect this at Circus Circus. This is a great place to stay with children and is highly recommended by my granddaughter.

Room Tip: Staying in the Casino Tower is a lot handier to the Midway if you have younger children.

No problems at all. Was great to offer 20% off food at your restaurants with the High Roller Bowlers card, that gave me a little more to gamble ! Kids in the hallways were not too noisy late at night or early in the morning.
