On my way to an interview

I traveled to reno for a short business interview and needed somewhere to stay for a relatively low cost. What I gained was pleasing since my experience was great at the hotel. Although the is still a necessity to take a cab from the airport, it was not to long and so expenses were understanding.

the parking garage

My son was almost put in jail for HELPING a fellow motorcyclist as he hit YOUR cross arm as you put your EXIT sign pointing right to a closed arm and the motorcyclist hit it and my son went to help pulling the arm off the guy and it sprung and broke. Your security thought he was the one the hit it and they wouldn't listen. BUT I have all on camera and will be putting on media real soon!

getaway

The hotel staff was very friendly especially all the dealers we encountered at the attached casino. I would definitely recommend a stay at CircusCircus. The kids game area had Christmas theme stuffed animals as prizes this year. They were great. Love the camel races.

Spent plenty of time in our room before and after our Reno wedding.

Room was clean with sheets on top of bed getting washed daily not monthly. Room service was great. Spent plenty of time in our room before and after our Reno wedding. Could not beat the price.
