Travel Blogs from Reno
Spent Sat - Wed in Reno. Walked from downtown to Atlantis and back on Sun. Definitely got our steps in this day! Bowled team at 3 pm on. Monday. Bowled singles/doubles Tues. Left Reno We'd morning.
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 ...
... in July things get, shall we say, a little toasty. When we decided to bypass Winnemucca (seriously, a one-horse town) and to travel on I got got the web to see when we could park for the night. Of course, Walmart was always an option...according to Tim! GOD BLESS SMART PHONES! As I was looking up KOA parks along the way I perused Orbitz to see ...
... a field of geo-thermal vents and later learned that a company uses the heat to dry onions.
We found a campspot at GSR in Reno (Grand Sierra Resorts, not Gun Shot Residue). We were finally able to use our water/sewer system in the motorhome. We walked around the campground with the dog to check out license plates. We saw lots from Texas, Florida, South Dakota and Oregon but only ...
Played Bing Crosby tournament's original golf venue from the 1930's. It was a steal at $20 a round for twilight. You are surrounded by lovely alpine trees and grass.. with views of the lake and mountains.. and the crystal clear snow melt rushes down the creeks around you.
I then went over to the East side of the lake for some sunset views.. there's some really good vista points and is quite undeveloped on the East side.
I finished off the night ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Silver Legacy Resort and Casino Reno
I went by myself, for some RnR from family. Even though I was a single woman traveling by myself I was given a great room and treated very well by employees. There was a long line at the check in but the desk was adequately staffed so line went fast. Even so, the staff was passing out champagne to people in line. I love to play Black Jack there. The restaurants are great too. A really delicious prime rib dinner in the Sweetwater Cafe; great breakfasts too. I had good Cninese food in the Market Express; it was cooked to order, not sitting in a steam table. Good value too. I rarely left to go anywhere else; just the Circus Circus & El Dorado and didn't have to go outside to get there. My only complaint would be the rooms are a little dim. I'd like brighter light bulbs in at least some of the light fixtures.
I found the Silver Legacy to be clean and nice. Everything worked and the staff was very friendly and warm. I had never been to Reno before and do not think I could have had a better time anywhere else. I found the Silver Legacy to be a trip I will cherish and always remember. I had never gambled before and won on the machines at least six times in three days. I won 3 times on my Keno card. It was all a first time experience for me and I loved it. The view from our window of the mountains, blue sky and white clouds was lovely. We could also watch the pool area and see some of the other casinos and the lights at night. It was just wonderful. I liked the breakfasts better than the dinners in the surrounding eating establishments. Their breakfasts were the best I have ever had anywhere. All beverages in the casino are free. It was just so much fun I can not wait to go again. I forgot to mention the Silver Legacy Lobby is really pretty and elegant. It was just a trip to remember. Thank you to everyone who works at the Silver Legacy. This was a casino my father loved when he was alive. It was my first time to visit it with my mother.
Upon arrival I was greeted by a line of over 100 people checking in at 3:00 P.M. Fully staffed it took about 30 minutes to make it to the desk. When arriving in the room, I found it to be visually clean but in need of maintenance. The wall paper was peeling in one place and the bath tub spout was pulling out of the wall. The lighting is horribly dark (very low wattage flourescent bulbs) even though the hotel charges $3.00 energy surcharge above and beyond the posted room rate. Get real and get honest, include it in your room rate or get rid of it. The casino seems to be understaffed causing extended waits for hand payouts (and hand payouts are the norm at 500 nickels????) when most other casinos require a hand pay at $50 on a nickel slot.
A VERY NICE HOTEL
I stayed here July 20-24, 2003. Had a spa suite. The room was spotless and very comfortable. I had a wonderfull stay. I liked the slots, I did not get any large jackpots but a bunch of little ones so I played a lot for just a little money. The employees were very friendly. I really liked the sports bar. I will stay here next trip for sure. I usually stay at Circus Circus but this place is worth the little extra money.
I have never been treated as a non-essentail guest by a hotel chain as I was by this one. I travel weekly throughout the west and sleep at many hotels during the year. The two most obnoxious people I have ever encountered in a hotel were on the front desk at this hotel.
Am a little puzzled by other bad reviews--my experience was just fine.
First time...probably last.
Not much space in room. Stains on chairs. Ironing board, iron and hair dryer in room but had to bring own coffee pot. Beds rather firm. Room was clean but had poor lighting. Will try another hotel next time.
Not so good, go for eldorado
The receptionist was very unprofessional. Stinky attitude. The room was clean but reeked of cigarette smoke even though I requested a non-smoking room. Go for the eldorado hotel.
We stayed there a few years back and I guess employee theft runs rampant. Our was sunglasses and cosmetics stolen out of our room. We too got the "Stuffed shirt" approach to our problem. Will also stay elsewhere next time.
We visited the Silver Legacy in July, 02. We generally visit it at least once or twice a year and really enjoy the work out club, which is a great deal for $5. This time was different. We had brought a few people with us, including my parents and they used the valet for their car. One of the valets stole their checkbook, some cash, and a small crystal hanging from the mirror. Although my parents shouldn't have left that stuff in the car, I would have thought that the hotel would have comp'd them for the room....at least! No comps, no special treatment, just a police report and SEE YA. Also, their checkout for the room was a hassle. They were overcharged by a couple of hundred dollars and it took a while to convince the clerk (who was very nice) to adjust it. On top of that, our two children, who ate the same thing that morning, both got food poisoning later that night. That was a mess to end all mess's. And we could only trace the food poisoning back to that breakfast at the hotel. I tried reaching someone to discuss this with them but had very limited success. This years visit in May, 03, will be to one of the other newer hotels.
