Road trip 1st stop

Great place to stay with children the only thing that needs improvement is the pillows from the room. They were really big and uncomfortable. I thought someone had stuffed two pillows in one pillowcase but that's the way they are.

Circus Circus good value

Pleasantly surprised. Room was totally renovated with new bath, curtains, carpet, pillows, etc. Looked a lot cleaner than the last time we stayed there. Resort fee is a little ridiculous - not much of a resort with no swimming pool. Hallways, lobby, etc. was all very clean and well maintained.

Hotel is in need of updating. Looks exactly the same as 10 years ago. Restaurant needs to be cleaned. Fake plants had layers of dust on it.

Circus Circus

Circus Circus is a good value for a downtown Reno hotel/casino. The best thing was the room on the 16th floor with a sweeping vista facing east to Sparks and the Nevada desert. The down side is there are two hotels separated by a street and if you are booked into the hotel without the casino, you have to take the skytram (fun once - a pain the rest of the time) or walk across the street to the main hotel/casino. Once in the casino, you are transported back 50 years to a small, well-worn casino floor that lacks the wow factor. Overall, Circus Circus is a B grade hotel casino with value accommodations.

Ever walked out of a movie before it's over?

I requested a non-smoking room and they said ok at the front desk. I check in and found ash trays and smoke smell everywhere. Windows do not open even a crack, so no ventilation. I have been in hole-in-the-wall bars that allow smoking and none have been this bad in terms of the smoke smell. We called the front desk and were told no rooms available so they'd send an ionizer and we would have to leave the room. 3 hours later, we come back and it still stinks. The bathrooms were so dirty, we felt like we had to keep our shoes on. And the carpet so worn it looked thinner in high traffic areas. It was also the color and pattern of ground beef. We called and asked for a refund but they said it was too late unless we could get the hotel to refund it to this site. The CSR called the hotel and told me the hotel claims I was already in a non-smoking room. The hotel refused to offer a refund. We paid about $140 and never stayed in the room. Never stayed in the hotel. We left and went elsewhere. I would have rather taken the loss than to actually stay there. In fact, if someone were to ask me if I'd stay there and get paid that much, I would say no thanks. Everyone talks about this being a great hotel for kids. Sure, the arcade is probably nice (I wouldn't know, we spent no time there other than trying to figure out the room situation). There is no way I'd let my kids stay in this dirty hotel.

Good room

Room was quiet and c lean. 17th floor and could have used more elevators. Central location and was easy to walk around. Everything was as close as you could want. Seats in the casino were comfortable and the staff was friendly. No waiting at the restarunts.

Good hotel to stay with your parents and/or little ones. All the amenities necessary amenities are provided within the hotel and the gaming arcade is the best for complete family fun, not to forget the free circus shows throughout the day :)
