Never stayed here. Normally stay @ Silver Legacy but was sold out.

Circus Circus smokier than most. Dark and old feeling.

Had to wait in line 25 minutes at Sky Tower, after taking shuttle, to get on elevator to get to room. Hotel will not allow any use of stairs. Got to room & room key would not work. Called front desk & said would sent security with key. Security never came. Had to go back, get new key & do all over.

I would not recommend this hotel. But if must stay here do not stay in Sky Tower.

Granted this is a large casino/hotel in downtown Reno. We booked because of the cheap rates during mid week. The Hotel is kid friendly with a mezzanine 'Midway and circus acts.
* Airport shuttle on time and efficient
*Not enough people at check-in, there was one person even taking reservations as well as checking in people. There were about 10 people waiting to check in with only two at reception.
* Our original room was right next to the elevator/snacks and ice machine,too loud! We treked back down to reception to get a different room. Again a long line and two people at reception! We were re assigned a corner room. It was ok. Good view of the other Circus circus tower and mountains in the distance. The rooms are all 'circus' decore purples, reds, yellows and blues.
The mattress was like sleeping on in a taco, the pillows, small. The thing that really put us off were holes(plural) in the sheets. Not on the sides but right in the middle! Wallpaper peeling off the walls in the bathroom walls.

We availed ourselves of the 'freebies' that were given at reception for the free play etc.

All in all Circus Circus, Reno is what it is. It does need a bit of an upgrade.

Room Tip: Get one away from the elevators and ice machines

Recent stay from March 10th to March 11th 2012. Great hotel for a couple of nights to the Reno area. Nothing fancy or luxurious, just a place to rest and have some fun in the Casino and maybe a few drinks if desired. Rooms are comfortable, clean, in our case, large enough to acommodate all of us. The bathroom is ample and also clean. All. in all, we had a good stay at Circus Circus Reno. If needed, I will stay there again.

This is my 2nd time coming to Reno. This time I stayed at the circus circus hotel. The room was nice but not great. I had a lot of fun down in the game area. The shows were good too. Overall I had a good time at circus circus!!!
