Bachelorette party

The room had an awkward odor. The sky tower shuttle was closed a few times and we had an infant. The stroller was a pain to go up and down stairs. The hall way was extremely loud during the night. My baby woke up several times. The shampoo was so small I couldn't wash my hair. Nothing special but worth the 50 a night.

It was a good time but

I had a good time but when I went to check in they did not have room in there system and that I had no room at all, but then I showed them your email and they went to the back and fixed it. Then my big bed that I wanted in my room well they did not have it so they gave me two small beds vs 1 large bed that I had asked for. They said that I could get a room with a big bed but in a smoking room or I could wait later for a room and I am not ok with that, so I took the two beds

Decent place to stay, be prepared for some walking

This is a spread-out facility, with two separate towers. We stayed in the original part of the hotel, and the room was ok, clean and quiet except for a rather noisy air conditioner. The bed was a bit spongey, and not as comfortable as some. Downstairs is pretty chaotic. Lots of families and children, even around midnight. If you park on the wrong side of the hotel, or end up staying in the tower, it's a hike with stairs, not too easy with luggage.

Easy, cheap, entertaining

I live in South Lake and stay at Circus Circus every time I visit Reno. It's inexpensive, spacious rooms, fast-easy check in, free parking, lots to do around the casino, a great variety of places to eat inside the casino, fun bars, located close to everything. The only cons I have is that the workout room needs to be evaluated and updated, and they need a pool!!! Oh and maybe more entertainment/shows that are legit.
