Bring in the clowns.

Check-in; Booked a week ahead, told I 'd have a King bed room, got there early enough that they could have had one----was told "all sold out"----finally with my polite persistance got a king room not in main building and it was the handicapped room which I did not need.. Parking; good, but noticed handicapped parking is not completely ADA compliant---maybe my quick call to U.S. Govt. will change that. Shuttle;one was out of order for most of my stay. The working one had a broken board at the floor of the exit which you trip on and a guy in a wheel chair had to have help to get over it. Mandatory "resort fee" is a ripoff. Bed too Used and non-suportive.

Come here for the arcade not for the hotel

Can't say this is a 3 star hotel. Noisy AC, Not very clean. Glad I had to stay just one night. The hotel seriously needs renovations. The Arcade area is nice for kids though. Unlike other arcades, you actually have a fair shot at winning a few toys.

Circus Circus Hotel and Casino - Reno

It was ok. Free minibar supplies - small but pleasant surprise, very good wired internet connection, very clean room, walking distance (7-10 mins) to interchange mrt station, fancy 'smart home' control panel, comfortable air even with aircon off, comfortable beds and selection of pillows, quiet although overlooking a highway

Circus Circus

It was good. THe main disappointment came in 2 areas. THe fees charged by hotes is rediculous. It gives no benefit to the customer and is just another way to greed. I asked several people about the tranportation system and found they know very little about the cost of different types of transportatio or how to locate busses or other forms. I could have saved a lot of money if they would ahve been helpful. Unfortunatley I learned by making mistakes and could have saved money to spend on Reno stuff.

Use the bus system and do not use shuttles unless they are free and never use taxis they cost the most.

Ok

We stayed her for a long weekend. We've been before so that my daughter can play at the circus portion, that's always fun. One of the shuttles was down, so that was a bummer and then a line for the elevators, guess we came at a very busy time. The rooms were ok, but dusty. Overall it was an ok stay, you get what you pay for and I got a deal, so that was a PLUS.
