Circus Circus is located right in the heart of downtown connected to two other casinos/hotels (Silver Legacy and El Dorado). You can either walk outside to get to the other two or use the walkways (which house their many restaurants). After we waiting 10 minutes to check in, we got the 27th floor of the Sky Tower. We parked our car on the first level right by the doorway leading to the elevator. We were in our room in less than 5 minutes. The room was huge. It had two Queen sized beds, a desk and armoir, which houses their tiny t.v. The desk had two chairs. Our view was simply breathtaking.
The Casino is smokey, but they all are. It would be fantastic if Nevada would go Smoke-Free! It was also a little dark, but not at all congested despite all the people there when we arrived on a Saturday night. We paid $90 for two nights (Saturday and Sunday). I don't think that was too expensive seeing that we arrived on a Saturday. The bed was not uncomforable, but certainly not as good as ours at home. The bathroom was clean and very large. They must have problems getting water all the way up to the 27th floor because the water pressure was not all that good (though the water was good and hot!). I didn't hear any noise from either the other rooms or the hallway.
The next morning, we ate at their buffet for breakfast (got 2 for 1 buffet coupons). Skip this place! Not good at all! We used our $10 off coupon at the Smoking Gecko, now this place was simply fantastic!!!
We sat at the sports bar and put a few bucks in the video poker game (we really don't gamble) and we drank for free. After a couple of drinks and about one hour, we took our money (broke out even) and left. Great deal! Circus Circus doesn't have a pool, but I heard you could use the Silver Legacy's pool. When we were there, we didn't bother because the weather was bad. It was cloudy, breezy and quite cool.
There is a shuttle to take you from the Sky Tower rooms to the Casino, but that is sooo unncessary. Walking takes less time, but there are stairs so beware of that. There is a huge Midway for kids to play all kinds of games. I saw almost every kid with a bag of small stuff animals and a few kids with huge winnings! They all seemed quite happy. Even though I don't have kids, I wanted to see the Midway...Circus Circus did this up nicely for families.
I really wanted to stay downtown this trip to Reno and Circus Circus had the best deal, plus it was connected to the two other casions. It was also in great walking distance to other casinos (the ones that are still opened that is). Absolutely the most perfect downtown location and the best price for a clean, large room with a hot shower (and mostly good food, except the buffet).
I would go back and highly recommend the Circus Circus.
