Club Cal Neva Hotel Casino
Ranked #25 of 64 Hotels in Reno
Reviewed 23 June 2011

The hotel was very nice, we stayed in a newly remodeled room for $35 a night. The Wi-Fi is outrageously expensive so we spent the night with no internet which was no big deal since they have $5.99 Prime Rib and 1/2 pound of fries in the casino right across the street then went on to enjoy a little gambling and free drinks. The hotel is nice, clean, quiet and comfortable!! Would definately stay there again!

Cal neva is a great place for the budget. Their rooms are old but clean and comfortable. So the TV has a tube, big deal ! I did not come here to watch tv. Some people just have to complain. Their eaterys are excellent!! Good specials with good service. They get quite busy at times because it is good.
Gambling is fun at Cal Neva. 2.00 roullette and BJ and 3.00 Let it Ride, slots that actually pay out money. They have 3 floors of fun.

The hotel and casino are older, but I have never been treated better by anyplace. From the hotel staff to the casino workers, they know what it means to take care of the customer. I had the most fun I've had in any casino. The pit bosses and dealers were wonderful and made you feel like you were one of their high rollers, even though I was only betting $5 a hand. They like to have fun with the customers here. Very laid back atmosphere. The cocktail waitresses I had made sure my glass was never empty. As I said the hotel and casino are older, but I will always patronize this establishment due to the exceptional service and treatment by the staff.

I was in Reno for the National Bowling tournament. The reviews for Cal Neva were mixed, but the price was good and it was an easy walk to the main casinos and the Bowling Stadium so I decided to give it a shot. The rooms were basic, but clean. The staff was very friendly. The only issue I had was the hot water. Some days it was fairly warm and other days it was luke warm. I should have mentioned to the staff, but kept forgetting until I checked out.

There is free parking 1-2 blocks away, and valet parking at the hotel. I never used the valet. There are a couple slot machines in the lobby, but the main casino is across the street. The El Dorado and other main downtown casinos are a couple blocks away as is the Bowling Stadium. Harrahs is across the street from the Cal Neva casino.

Unfortunately the bed we had was like laying on the floor; it was a VERY hard mattress. Some people like that kind of mattress, I do not. I don't remember the beds being that hard in prior trips; I've stayed here before. Please keep in mind the bed-thing is my personal preference and not all the beds may be as hard as ours.

However, the price is GREAT for the location so close to the ball park. Our trip was intended to go to the games, which we did. It's only like 3 blocks walking to the park. Exellent location!! Better price than the one across the street... I would definitely stay here again, if I find that other rooms have softer mattresses.

Food in the Top Deck is always good; while the wait sometimes is long, the prices of the meals make up for it.

To my wife and I, it looked as if the rooms hadn't seen an update in 20 years. They are so-so clean and old. The carpet was not clean! The TV was a 19" tube without any movies available and the beds were on the very firm side. The A/C wasn't adequate in the room though in the lobby and casino they worked fine. The casino was nice and inviting. For the money... which I paid $133 for the bare bones 2 queen bed room, I was disappointed. Must have been a supply/demand situation...Disappointed!
