Spread Eagle meets the Big Top

A travel blog entry by wordmom on Jul 07, 2014

STATS 3410 miles traveled! Have I mentioned that the Eagle does not have air conditioning? Let me clarify, we have air when we are plugged in or parked and using our generator, but while we are in motion...we are out of luck. We have been very fortunate with the weather and really can't complain, but when traveling close to 400 miles through the …

National Automobile Museum & Campo Restaurant

A travel blog entry by wheresgordon on Aug 25, 2013






We got most of our shopping done yesterday so we thought we'd do some sightseeing. We decided to go to the National Automobile Museum, which is considered one of the top automobile museums in the country. The museum was started with a donation from Harrah's of nearly 200 cars from the Harrah Collection, which numbered over …

I checked out of my hotel and did a little shopping before leaving Elko. Then headed for Reno, arriving in the early afternoon.

I actually started to remove stuff from the pile to go on the bike before I started loading up the bike. There is probably 50 pounds of needed gear and 50 pounds of junk. Things like the mosquito head net which I am sure will not do much good at 75 mph because the mosquitoes up there can fly 100 mph to get some fresh blood. Had to figure out where to put on the bike things like tools, spare parts, clothes for all kinds of weather, and overnight camping gear just in ...

    Well worth the $28! Beds and room were clean, comfy and spacious. Bathroom floor could use a better scrubbing, but not a deal-breaker. It was a nice brake after being on the road 8 days. Suited our needs perfectly.

    Good Value For The Price

    from

    I went to Circus Circus in October and overall I enjoyed my stay. The night didn't start out well but in the end everything was fine. I booked a mini suite in one of the towers but I didn't know that I had to go all the way across the stree after check in just to go to my room. It was my first time at Circus Circus so I was a little confused.

    Relaxing Fun

    from

    Just returned from another great stay @ Circus-Circus Reno! The staff is always very friendly from check-in thru each area of the hotel / casino. Rooms are kept clean & comfortable. (I always stay on the non-smoking floors so I dont know how the others are.) Rooms are equipped with coffee machine, iron, hairdryers. If you have never stayed there before the rooms in the Sky Tower are less expensive since you take a sky shuttle to the main casino. The plus side of staying there is that if you ask for a room on the west side, you will have a view of the Sierra Mountains. Great this time of year with the snow and sunsets. I went down to the Atlantis for dinner one night & I now know why everyone talks about their food! Definitely worth the drive out of downtown! Another trip to consider is a day in Virginia City. An old historic frontier town with wooden sidewalks plenty of shops, food and museums. If you get thirsty the Bucket of Blood Saloon serves fantastic Bloody Marys! Built a year after the Great Fire it is still in operation since 1876. Looking forward to my next trip there!

    Its a dump

    from

    Its gangsta paradise! I stayed at CC years ago and found the clown furnishings a bit scary and the eateries were to be avoided. We stayed there last year and it still sucks. Its like a Section 8 resort. A total dump, but its a place to sleep.

    Family Oriented

    from

    The Circus Circus Hotel is a great place to stay. I have stayed there with my family and I have stayed there with my friends that I bowl with during the ABC National Bowling Tournament. We have always been satisfied with the roooms and the service over the years. I have noticed that during the summer or when children are out of school there a lot of them running around having fun. I guess the need a break too.

    So if you don't like being around children you can still go there but try to pick your dates when children are in school.

    What a surprise! Had a nice time!

    from

    WOW! We stayed here on July 27, 03. This was our first Circus Circus visit and will definately return. Great rates. They were out of NS rooms by the time we arrived, and they offered to air fresh and change linens in a smoking room, which worked for us since we were there only 1 night. Midway was a blast with our 1 year old. Ate at the buffet, which I would NOT recommend. It was only average. The menu in the fine dining restaurant looked nice, and we should have ate in there instead.

    We will return to this nice hotel - especially since its great with kids. Only downfall is that I don't think they have a pool.

    Great Place to stay but over run with kids

    from

    This was our 3rd stay at this Circus Circus and we had booked 3 nights at a good rate. We like the rooms and the hotel is clean. But we did notice this trip it was very busy and over run with kids. I know that it is a hotel more geered for kids but when you are sitting in the casino and its a never ending line of kids going by and listening to little one crying because they want to go to the upstairs part or time for bed and mommy and daddy are to interested in whos winning and what.

    Always Great!

    from

    We have never had a bad stay here. Even when the rooms were the older style, we still had a spacious place to stay and a friendly staff to greet us. Their proximity to the Reno strip is perfect. Bonus is the fact they connect to Silver Legacy and El Dorado. And don't forget the wonderful Midway. Their coffee shop has never failed us. Circus Circus is the only hotel in Reno we will use. Note: steer clear of the El Dorado. Rooms are miniscule, prices outrageous.

    A Great Place To Stay

    from

    Stayed here June 1st, 2002. Very quiet, and comfortable room with 2 double beds. Decent view, air conditioning, cable, and clean! Stayed in smoking room, but didn't smell like smoke. Very pleasent and surprising experience; will definately stay here again.

    Dirty, crowded, noisy and low-class

    from

    We stayed at Circus, Circus because of the low cost. All I can tell you is that you get what you pay for. The lobby was continually crowded with people (many just sitting on the floor or sleeping) so trying to get in and out of the place was difficult. The lobby and casino areas were filthy. The carpeting was dirty. In order to get to our rooms, we had to walk through a maze that went through two casinos, through a shopping area and past an amusement park. It's not marked how to get to rooms, and we would have never found the elevators if we hadn't run into another couple who had been lost the day before and helped us. Circus, Circus accommodates families with trailers. There is a huge parking lot and entrance just for those people. And those are the kind of people who are in the restaurants and casinos there--loud, obnoxious, fighting, uncouth shoving, low-class people. We left the hotel as soon as we could each day to do everything anywhere else. And we hated having to go back there at night because we had to fights through those crowds of rude people to get to our room. There were large groups of nasty-mouthed teenagers congregated there because there is an amusement park in the hotel, too. Stay ANYWHERE else in Vegas!

    Much better than you would think

    from

    Circus Circus has wonderful weekday roomrates. Just barter with the reservation receptionist and you can get a room for as low as $20 a night in the Sky Tower! The rooms are clean, fast elevators, spacious. Plus your right on the strip with indoor access to Silver Legacy and El Dorado. There really aren't alot of children around either if thats what your trying to get away from. High reccomendation.
