“Wonderful hotel for gamers and site-seers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Very nice sized room; elevators opened into the casino area. Free valet parking is a plus.
Bags were delivered to the room promptly after we checked in. We ate in Gabe's Pub & Deli and Rosie's Cafe and the food and prices were excellent in both- much lower than expected.
Breakfast in Rosie's Cafe was wonderful and served very fast. There are several other restaurants located in the hotel, as well. (also a good Starbucks in the Lobby)
Casino was nice and large and servers were frequently passing by the slots offering free drinks.
The casino has a very good ventilation system as the smoke was not too bothersome unless someone right next to you was smoking. Hotel is located right on Hwy 80, so it is easy to drive to the airport ( less than 15 minutes away), Lake Tahoe, and the historical towns located close by.
Pyramid Lake is a short drive away, and really something to see. Also, take the loop drive around Lake Tahoe. It is magnificent !!! National Auto Museum is not too far away- downtown Reno. It too, is a must see for auto buffs.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the railroad tracks as they are a bit noisy.

We stayed here on our way from Lake Tahoe to Salt Lake City.

Our room had a back view overlooking the railway tracks on the 10th floor in the West tower (front rooms face the highway with view of the mountains) but the room was still pretty quiet, with 2-queen beds, older 27” tube TV, adequate supply of towels and toiletries. However there was no in-room safe, no coffee maker, no mini-fridge or microwave and worst of all, no free Internet. It’s a full service hotel, in addition to the casino there is a gym, swimming pool, business centre, many restaurants including Rotisserie Grill, Rosie's Cafe, the Noodle Hut, and bars. Dinner buffet at Rosie’s was good with the discount coupon, while a coffee refill at the hotel Starbucks cost 54¢.

We have stayed at the Nugget in Sparks for the last two years. The location is great and there are plenty of places to eat with live music and less hassle than downtown Reno. Everyone was friendly and the local restaurants really appreciate the business. We spent a little extra money to upgrade to the East Tower where the rooms have been renovated and are much nicer than the West Tower. If you want to visit Reno, it is easy to take a shuttle or make the short ride.

The indoor Pool is great. I am always made to feel very welcome at the nugget. I would not stay anywere else when visiting the reno/sparks area. The Food is as good as it gets, and if you use you club card most of the time its cost nothing for me.

This hotel casino is right off Hwy 80. No worries about having to get through downtown 1 way streets. The casino has every table game that you can think of and the dealers are great and friendly.
The entire staff is there to help and provide great service. Even the bathroom staff. I really like like you don't have to give outside the hotel to use the pool.
I would highly recommend this hotel.

It was a great experience to see these two groups in the great showroom at the Nugett. The rooms were great and it was an overall great time. We ate at the steak house and had a wonderful meal. And the casino was clean and I felt that the slots could of been just a little looser, but they were still productive. The location is easy to get too and the parking is an ease.

Room Tip: Pick the East tower
