very nice hotel for the money

Our room on the 24th floor of the sky tower at the circus circus reno was very clean and comfortable. the room always smelled fresh each day when we returned to it. they have a good ventilation system. An exhaust fan in the bathroom would have made the room better and close captioning on the tv for those of us with hearing problems.

Always a "keeper"

we've been staying here for years and years. We've always requested to stay in the main tower. After this last trip, and going through [...], we had to take the sky tower. At first, very disappointed..but in the end..wow..we will never demand the main tower again. So much easier to get in and out of the room to the parking garage. Don't need to walk through the casino, or up and down escalators to get to your room. I suggest, if you have kids and luggage in tow, to try out the sky tower. You will get in and out the place much much quicker. Rooms are always clean. Coffee and hair dryer is standard. Great views, extra towels, fluffy pillows. If you need anything, guest services always comes through. If you have pets, they even offer kennel services, and while in your room, you can tune into the channel that runs cameras to the room where your pet is, so you can check on them at any time. Always a great place to stay when you have kids. The coupons save big bucks! Especially at the buffet..buy one get one free..LOVE IT! Also sign up for their club one account..you'll get comps and more freebies..which is why we always come back!

Great hotel!

I went to visit UNR, and my two friends and I decided to stay here. What you pay is nothing compared to what they could charge. The hotel is situated in a good location, there are many eateries within, as well as all around. And they had minor circus acts in the evening, which weren't long, but were entertaining. And don't forget your money, because you'll want to visit the casinos, or the arcades!

The Smokin' Gecko is superb! The food is so delicious! It's technically not part of the hotel, but you don't have to walk that far to get to it. It's right in between this hotel and the one right next to it. (BTW, the sweet potato fries are to die for!)
