1999

I felt like I had been transported back to 1999. The hotel is completely out dated and is in need for some serious upgades. You would think that a hotel that takes in some serious cash from their casino would be able to have working televisions. Greed

Good place for USBC tournament

I had a pleasant stay. A nice room and good food in the hotel. The shuttle service was very easy to use to the airport and bowling stadium. There is no need for a rental car unless you want to drive and see other parts of Reno.

Less smoking

I was pleased to see MUCH less smoking, and the air was quality was pretty good. The food courts offer a pretty good value without driving anywhere. I liked having the shuttle bus available so we did have to worry about being lost. One thing that could have been better is the pillows...there is only 2 per bed and they were pretty flat. I would have no problem staying there again.

You get what you pay for!

My stay was for one night but would have loved to stayed longer. Booked the room on-line and got a better rate than I could have at the Hotel itself. I went cheap and got an average room with a roof top view. Who goes to Reno for the rooms anyways?? The gambling was great, good selection of slots and card games. Drinks flowed at a nice steady pace and the overall atmosphere was exciting. The Buffet needs help, Poor selection of foods for Dinner and Breakfast. I have never seen Prime Rib cut so thinly off the roast and served! Bottom line...You get what you pay for. This hotel does not disappoint and I would go back again!!
