SL is a place that I've stayed at for at least several dozen times over the years. 6 months ago it declared bankruptcy. Just before we left for Reno, we received a letter from SL notifying us that they were out of bankruptcy & thanking us for our patronage. I never had any doubt that they would continue operating but the effects of the slow economy have been showing for the last 2 years. We've stayed in everything from the smallest room (located in a corner of the building) to very roomy suites. What we've noticed over the last 2 years is a slowdown in renovations and limited hours for the restaurants. This was typical of every casino in Reno. In spite of this, SL has managed to offer a farily decent product for its guests. On this trip we stayed in a deluxe room with 2 beds which seem to have had some updating & a flat screen TV & a large bathroom.
One of the things that I enjoy is the friendliness of everyone who works there. From check in to check out, I can say that we always felt welcome by all the staff. We came on Thanksgiving Day, one of the their busiest days which was evidenced by the garage which I had never seen so full ever. If I have a quibble, it is parking in the garage which is a 10-story not-so-merry-go-round. You have to be careful for oncoming traffic and the ends sticking out of the oversize vehicles whose owners are too lazy to park where they ought to. Other than that, I can say that I usually have a good experience here. Since we came in late, we only had dinner at Cafe Sedona which is open late. Our normal fare is to order Chinese at Cafe Sedona but the special caught my eye. This day, they had a Thanksgiving turkey special which was good. Normally, if we're around on weekends, we make it a point to get up for their Sunday brunch which is the best brunch for the money in NV & that includes LV.
TIP: If you're set up for room charge, try going next door to Eldorado & try some of their restaurants. Since both places have the same owner, cross-property charges are permitted & Eldorado's cafe has a deli and jars of coffee beans which have made great gifts for friends.
