Best Value in Downtown

The feel of the room is somewhat worn, however, for what you pay, it's a great deal for a centrally located club. The restaurants and gambling at Circus Circus aren't the best - but they're affordable. The upside is that if you're looking for higher scale dining and entertainment, it's all a very short walking distance away.

Good.........but..........

Most amenities were great, most of the staff were great, but............ I really think Reno hotels ( and Vegas hotels ) have to rethink their Wi-Fi access, which was negligible at best. Even little motels in the middle of no where offer free wi-fi, what's up with these "big guys"? One coupon code per day, good for one device only?? Most rooms are at least two people with two devices so they can keep in touch with each other, seconf code, $4.99 per day!

Tub too high

We requested a handicapped accessible room. It was larges enough for wheelchair access. The bathroom was large and toilet was higher and had grab bars. The tub/shower had grab bars and a seat. The tub wall height, however was unusually high and nearly impossible for me to get into. I needed assistance from my husband to get in and out of. Only attempted this once during our 4 night stay. It would have been much more appropriate for a walk-in shower, or, at the least a much lower tub height.

Staff made my stay Excellent!

The rooms are nice, nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. The prices for the rooms are very affordable. Reno reminds me of what Vegas used to be, and I like it. Most notably, I was in town on business and cut it really short on time to get back to the Reno Airport to catch my flight back to LA. I spoke to the concierge, and he immediately drove a hotel vehicle around to the front and personally drove my wife and I to the airport. We made our flight with 5 minutes to spare thanks to him. We will be returning to Circus Circus again simply based on the customer service we received (and hotel price).

sisters wedding

We had a good stay. All staff was very pleasant and we enjoyed the free game voucher. The only negative was trying to get a drink while playing slots. I ended up buying a large bottle of water at gift shop in order to play without being thirsty. I will be back soon with my kids!!! Thank you for a pleasant stay and keep up the good customer service.
