Reviewed September 26, 2013

Arriving at this Reno behemoth was a breeze. Both the casino and attached hotel feature a fairly large, free parking garage, which is easy to navigate. Check in was a simple and friendly affair, the clerk was very welcoming after a long day on the road. The hotel itself, however, leaves a lot to be desired.

To be fair this was a cheap hotel and a cheap hotel was precisely what we found. The room was small but comfortable. The elderly television set had very limited viewing options. The decoration of the place left much to be desired.

Overall; nothing remarkable. But cheap. Reno, however it seems, is home of the cheap so I'm sure if you shopped around you could find better for a similar price.

My first stay at the Circus-Circus. I've stayed at the Peppermill in the past, but I prefer the location of Circus-Circus since it's more in town. And the way it's connected indoors to the Silver Legacy and the Eldorado hotels. It's been remodeled sometime in the not too distant past, and I was just as pleased as I was at the Peppermill in past trips.

Excellent value for my stay during the Reno Air Races. Ease in finding parking in the garage. Enjoyed the free circus acts in the midway. Clean and comfortable rooms. Excellent dining options and friendly, courteous staff.

This is a really cool place. The rooms were well maintained and very nice. The casino is really cool too and connected to about 3-4 other casinos in downtown reno. You never have to leave the building. It's a very fun atmosphere and I'd recommend staying here for anyone.

We stayed at the circus circus hotel over they labor day weekend. The stay was pleasant and I would stay here again! The rooms were clean. And housekeeping was very good! We asked for more towels and received them in a flash.

As a side note... We stayed in the sky tower on the 12th floor. On Friday night.... The people in the room next door... Were loud! They were going at it like jack rabbits and screaming and grunting and good lord we could hear when they decided to "escalate" and end their love tryst. It was a little disconcerting but over all... It doesn't affect my thoughts on the hotel.. Just need to be prepared for late night romance! Lolz....
