Went to the hotel to meet my Mom. Let's just say it's not on my list to return! Outdated, tacky and full of screaming kids & families. If you want to let your kids run wild, this is the place. No thanks.

We have stayed here a few times before and really had no complaints. The room was nice and the beds were very comfortable. Check in was very fast and getting to the room wasnt bad. You do either have to walk a little ways or take there tram to get to the rooms but it is only a 3 minute walk. During the weekends you might have a to wait a little bit to get on to the elevators but most of that is people being impatient and cutting in the line. The only real problem we had was the sink had a leak in it and we didnt find out until we were packing to leave and found the dirty clothes on the floor were soaking wet. We called maintenance to inform them of it and they were ready to send someone up right away to fix it. I would stay here again for the price.

Room Tip: If you dont want to fight the crowds pay the extra money and stay in the Casino Towers but both are...

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
