I have never stayed here - as i prefer the Silver Legacy or some of the other Hotels. The venue is old but popular for families.

It’s ok but that’s it. The Arcade floor is kind of nice. The casino a bit old. The rooms substandard for Reno. Sometimes there are some fantastic prices though. Lots of parking. Right downtown.

The casino had an area that resembled a real circus with rides, vendors, and all kind of things that you would expect to see at a circus. The children and adults seemed to be enjoying it a lot.

Not big gamblers, but we stopped in to see a couple of the free circus acts, They are short but good and entertaining. Had a bite to eat, played some of the arcade games for a few stuffed animals. Easy parking.

Smells like humid, stagnant air. Plus there's a ridiculous resort fee that makes it not worth the deal at all.

I come to Reno about 6-8 times a year and always stay at Circus Circus. I usually get a room in the North tower which is right by registration. Those rooms have been remodeled and updated and are nice. If you get stuck in another...More

I'd originally booked to stay here and so glad I didn't. Like much in Reno, it seems to be struggling in the financial climate.

Mid-week visits are the best - far fewer people and usually special "deals" on rooms and some other amenities.
