We stayed at Circus Circus in Reno on September 14, 2010, en route to visiting parents in Arizona. All staff persons we interacted with were pleasant and helpful. We had a nice room, although somewhat far away from the parking and reachable by a monorail-type tram car. Our visit was fine, but I note two bothersome elements.
(1) The mandatory so-called "resort fee." This is added to your room rate after booking, and supposedly includes wifi, parking, and shuttle to the airport. You have to pay this whether you need those services, or not. No way is this place a resort, in that there is no swimming pool or spa available. Why not just raise the room rate a bit and make the price all-inclusive? That would be less annoying.
(2) Instead of a glass coffee carafe and real coffee cups, there are styrofoam cups in the bathroom and little plastic one-use coffee brewing baskets. Horrendous additional load on the landfills -- plastic thrown out for every single cup of coffee brewed! I would like to see this hotel, and others, make greater attempts at green behavior.
Otherwise, a nice experience and as stated, friendly staff and a tasty buffet.
