Great location for what I needed.

I was there for the USBC bowling tournament, and Circus Circus was only 2 short blocks away . Had to change my room after 1st night, because of screaming kids next door. The staff was very understanding and upgraded me. Had everything I could need, in the hotel. Shuttle service was very prompt in getting us from and to the airport. I would stay at Circus Circus again.

Circus Circus reno

The check in people were great in taking care of the special needs of my family. The room was noisy so turn on the air conditioner. The room was clean and very basic. I enjoyed the stay and the gambling. The hotel people were all very nice and attentive to all of our questions. Can't not beat the price but add about eight to the quote for the additional city taxes that were not stated in the original quote.

Family vacation

Went for the kids in March. Unfortunately they only open half of the Circus games during the week, which is when we went. Nothing wrong with our rooms. I dont expect much. Quiet room, bed, tv, shower and bath room and im happy. Other than Circus Circus and Silver Legacy Reno in my opinion a ghost town.
