Good Place

The best part is the 8am check in. Room was clean and comfortable. They also let you stay until 6pm at half price day's rate which is very nice. I will stay there again.

Very Impressed!!

Staying at Circus Circus in Reno was a wonderful experience. We had friends visiting from England, and we stayed in a mini-suite on the 26th floor in the Skytower. The minute we walked in and saw the wonderful view, we were hooked. The accommodations were perfect for two couples, with a king bed in the separate bedroom, and a pull-out queen sofa in the living room. The bathroom was spacious and spotless, as was the rest of the rooms. Also, the beds were extremely comfortable. We only had to wait a few minutes in a line for check-in, which was very smooth, and the staff was friendly, professional and helpful. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again.

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.

Terrific bargain in downtown Reno

Room was quiet and comfortable, staff was pleasant, parking was no problem. Being connected by indoor walkways to both the Eldorado and The Silver Legacy Hotel offered many dining options.

Walk next door to the Eldorado Hotel and take advantage of the Early Bird Dinner/Show special. Greatly reduced pricing if you can eat by 6pm.
