Well. We drove clear across some of Utah and all of Nevada today. We stopped at The Great Salt Lake. It was beautiful, but smelled awful, snapped a picture and hit the road. The trick was trying to get back in the van without letting any of the millions of flies in the car. We were unsuccessful. Driving I-80 west through the salt flats was pretty …

Heute war unser längster Reisetag. Wir haben uns auch diesmal nichts weiter vorgenommen, außer nach Reno bzw. Sparks zu kommen.

Die Fahrt selbst war lang, nicht nur von der Strecke sondern auch von der gleichnamigen Weile her. Wir haben immer mal ein Päuschen eingelegt und auch ein paar Fotos geschossen. Letzteres aber nur, damit überhaupt …

Just a few notes before signing off. I'm nearly home.

Most of the campsites located near a freeway are often also located near train tracks. Depending on how sound travels, I hear freeway traffic and/or train whistles at night.

I had to laugh the night I stayed at the Best Western when, snuggled into a comfy king size bed with six marshmallow-soft pillows,I heard a train ...

Spread Eagle meets the Big Top

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 ...

... cruise in and there weren't many cars but Terry was hoping he could get a discount on parts but it didn't work out.

SATURDAY 6/21-HAPPY SUMMER We decided to drive thru town and check it out. We had heard on TV about BBQ, Brews and Blues Festival but they talked like it was only Friday. Well it was in full swing when we got there at noon. It must have been 5-6 blocks along the main street (Silver St) then a block off each of those. They had two ...

    Cable was out. Apparently it was city wide although it's working fine on the main floor. The shower is awful, the shower head spray is stuck on a setting getting water everywhere but where I want it. Staff haven't been very helpful or friendly.

    Historical Traveler Reviews John Ascuaga's Nugget Casino Resort Sparks

    A pleasant stay away from downtown!!

    from

    Stayed one week at the Nugget during a business trip. The hotel was very modern and clean, and the staff was friendly overall. My West Tower room (25th floor) was large and comfortable, with numerous tables, and even a recliner. The only downside was the two queen size beds (a single king was not available). The bathroom was well appointed, with hot water in an instant. The six tower elevators were quite smooth and speedy. The buffet was very good, but the service at the Farm House restaurant was extremely slow both times I was there.

    I'm going back!

    from

    This was my first experience with a Hotel/Casino and my first visit to Nevada. Rooms were spacious and very clean, excellent amenities(outstanding pool area and a HUGE Archade for kids and adults), and a the staff is top notch. My wife and I had meals at Orozko's(great atmosphere), The Rotisserie Buffet(loved the Rib night), Gabe's Pub & Grill(affordable quality), and Rosie's Cafe(excellent breakfast), we found the food Well above average in all the places we ate and the service was outstanding. This was also my first experience with Casino gambling and playing Blackjack, and again the staff was outstanding in its service and help! They also have a good selection of slots for as little as a Nickel per play up to $100 per play, and table games(roulette, blackjack,Three Card Poker, Fortune Pai Gow Poker, Let It Ride and craps) for as little as 50 cents per play. There might be better places to stay, play and gamble but they're going to have to be awfully good to top this one! I'm going back!

    Disappointed

    from

    Spent 3 nights at the Nugget in June for a conference. Requested a club level room which advertised secure access, special in-room appointments such as live plants, nightly turn down service and extra amenities.

    Best Hotel in Reno

    from

    I have stayed at this hotel three times and haave not yet been dissapointed. The service this hotel offers is probably the best in Reno as most hotels in Reno don't care about service they just want your money. The rooms are very spacious and nicely decorated, close to being suites. This hotel always offers the best music artist entertainment in Reno. The swimming pool is large and decorated like the Tropics. There is also an excellent fitness center for weight training , treadmill work,or basic fitness. There is a variety of resturants in the Casino and all are recommended.

    JOHN ASCUAGA'S NUGGET'S STEW STEWART

    from

    Stew Stewart's intertainment in the cabaret lounge was outstanding. His talent and clean presentation cannot be topped. Also his inter-action with the audience makes for a fun evening. I highly recommend his show, as we attended several nights during our stay.

    Pretty good, really...

    from

    Was here for a convention and had a good experience. Room was spacious and even had a sofa and coffee table. Bathroom was average, but just fine--room didn't have iron & board, but they brought me one within a half-hour. Coffee shop was good and fairly-priced, and other dining options were quite nice. Nice indoor pool. Location is isolated (in Sparks), which is a little out of the way from Reno--a definite disadvantage--especially if you don't have a car. Overall a good experience, & the staff was friendly.

    Had a great time!

    from

    Stayed a week at the Nugget and had a wonderful time. The rooms are spacious and clean. The location is pretty good. The entertainment in the lounge was very good. When I go back to Reno I will probably stay there again.

    Customer Service

    from

    I had the worst service at Rosie's Cafe. After a 30 minute wait for a Pizza "to go" I asked the waiter how much longer would it be before my Pizza was ready. He said he would check, only to find out they had not even put it in the oven. I stated it would take about 15 minutes, I told him I couldn't wait since my bus would be leaving in 5 minutes. I asked that he cancel the order and return my money. Oh, I forgot to mention he asked me to pay right after I ordered the Pizza "to go" his name was Ronald that the name on my paid receipt. I was asked to go the cashier for my money back. The cashier called the manager Holly O'Bester would immediately told me she would not refund me back my money. I told her the Pizza was not even in the oven and I had to leave again, she said she would not refund my money. I know John Ascuaga's Nugget make enough money to hire more professional people. I have been to the Nugget many times have eaten at many of their fine restraunts but have never eaten or heard of Rosie's until 02/14/03 this is when I experinced the rude woman Holly O'Bester. I want to let everyone know do not EAT at Rosie's Cafe. Customer Service STINKS

    Cabaret Lounge with Stew Stewart

    from

    John Ascuaga's Nugget is one of the best hotels without a doubt but..... we could not get a room there as they were hosting a convention. So we stayed at the Eldorado but each evening we drove over to Sparks from Reno for the lounge act.

    Love it

    from

    The nugget is one of the best places in Reno area. It is close enough for skiing during the day at Mt. Rose or Diamond Peak, and upon your return from skiing you can enjoy the pool, spa, gym or gambling.
