Great place for the kidz

We really love it, had a real good time, loved the view a hole bunch, we were on the 28th floor. watched out the window for hours, I really missed the mountains. we enjoyed the arcade, my son spent a lot of time down there. Can't say much for dining, the 1st night we had the buffet, very high price not much of a selection of food. Most of the food places closed early. The Maid service was fantisic, was great, very helpful. The room was great lots of room, the ac was great. I' defently give this hotel a AA++. Yes I'd stay here again. Check in went real good and for check out was even better.

Excellent for family with children

The Circus Circus was a very nice hotel and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Would be great for people with children. Very family oriented. Also, was nice that their was a car rental right there at the hotel. The staff was very helpful with directions to our destination. Would definitely recommend.

Great value

Never havaing stayed at Circus Circus before, we didn't know what to expect. We were in for a very pleasant surprise. Check in was easy and we got two adjoining rooms on the 24th floor in the Sky Tower. Both rooms were quite spacious, clean, and very well appointed. The view allowed us to also see the Reno Balloon Races which were going on that weekend. We also dined at the Steakhouse which was quite good.

SAm ans Shirley's Stay in Reno

1. We stayed there and ate there and gambled there. Everything was great. The only thing that would make it better is if we won more money.

A great honeymoon

We went to Reno, NV to get married. It was the 1st trip either of us have taken in over 15 years. The day of our wedding we went to Smokin Gecko's in the hotel. The service was wonderful and the meal superb. We were close enough to walk to the river walk area. Plus it was a nice little walk to the automobile museum (1 of the top ten in the world). The staff were friendly and went out of their way to make everyone feel like they were special. To give you a sample we needed to do our boarding passes and book our luggage for the trip back. The hotel did it for free and then held our luggage until it was time to go catch the shuttle for our flight. Another example is the fact that we order a drink and the bartender was unhappy with the way the fruit looked. Apologized and went and got a whole different batch. We thought the fruit looked good but evidently didn't meet the bartenders standards. Trivoli Gardens was a wonderful place to have breakfast. We had planned on going to different places to have our meals but the food at the restaurants was flat out spectacular and very reasonable. I couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon.
