Great place to stay in Reno

Really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I stayed on the 32nd floor with a rearward facing view. It was nice because you could see the mountains. The lobby was beautiful. Free parking in a well lit parking garage. Lots of security through the hotel and casino. The staff was very friendly. The room was nice, not super luxurious, but nice and clean. It had dated carpet and tile, but with modern furniture. I would definitely stay here again.

Cheap Facility for the Price

Pros: The Staff and the casino.....
Cons: The quality of the room/bathrooms!!!! Larger Pool.
Location: More for Teenagers to do!
Our family thought the price was too high for what you received. The bathroom was mid late 70's, the bathtub was cheap and there was no fan in there so when you took a shower all your close got damp. We wondered what the smell was in the room it was because of there not being any fan in the bathroom and it mad the whole room musky. No refrigerator in the room is a big issue as after a long night of gambling it is nice to go back to your room and have a drink. The staff was very nice, however it didn't make up for the out dated cheap condition of the room. The pool was ridiculous as we have two teen age boys and the pool is only 3 1/2' deep. So we were stuck with two teenage boys with nothing to do.

Wonderful stay in Reno

Pros: The friendly staff, great food and exciting entertainment.
Cons: Everything was very positive for my stay and couldn't recommend any changes.
Location: We were there to also look at real estate and found the hotel to be quite central for all areas.
After a long drive from California we were welcomed into the Silver Legacy. The room was very comfortable with a view of the pool area. The security watching the hotel rooms made us feel very safe. The casino was fun and the food at the Central Cafe, Pete's Coffee, and especially the Sterling restaurants was excellent. The comedy night in the Laugh Factory was very entertaining. It was nice to experience games at the Silver Legacy, Circus Circus and the Eldorado. Would highly recommend staying at this location.

Nice Lobby

Pros: The close proximity to all the local shops and attractions.
Cons: The guest room bathrooms need some TLC. As a non smoker- the exhaust system for the casino and restaurants need updated.
Location: The Edy- Outdoor gathering space with food/ beverage and games.
The lobby/ common space is very attractive and pleasant. The guest rooms are dated and need new decor, The bathrooms need some TLC. As a non smoker- the exhaust system for the casino and restaurants need updated, spraying of air freshener just masks the odor- doesn't quit do the trick.

Silver Legacy Resort/Casino Reno, NV

Hotel and 3 Casinos (Silver Legacy, El Dorado and Circus Circus) about a 10-15 minute drive from airport. The 3 casinos are connected and there are plenty of great restaurants and bars, not to mention live entertainment. Reliable Casino shuttle runs to airport and back approx. every 30 minutes daily. Short taxi ride to the new downtown river walk, shops and the Peppermill Casino costs approx. $11 each way. Cab drivers were friendly and a wealth of information about Reno. Rooms were clean,large enough and quiet.. Staff was friendly and accommodating. You must show your room key to security person in order to access elevators to rooms. Booked room prices do not reflect a $20+ resort charge per room per day. You are charged at the end of your stay. The double queen we occupied had no microwave, table or refrigerator (fridge. $10 extra per day if one is available). The room was still a great value and we were happy with the accomodations.

Hotel room

Hotel room was small cozy, just would have liked to of had a safe and maybe a fridge for left overs. We are out every night and ended up wasting a lot of food because we didn't have a way to keep it cold.

Great time; center of the action

Location: The location of the hotel had easy access and was mingled somewhat with two other casinos/hotels. The Eldorado had a poker room which I visited.
The room was nice, clean, and since it was homecoming weekend for UNR, it seemed like the center of attention. There was a parade downtown, and a "Zombie Crawl," which kept things interesting. Although neither event was the reason for our stay, we had a very nice time. We were in the area for the Ultra 4 National races, which were fabulous. We also took advantage of "Sterlings" the hotel's very nice restaurant. It was very good, and the service was excellent. Baggage handling and check-in desk person were helpful, and made the process uncomplicated.
