Circus Circus Hotel and Casino

With two sleek towers, nine room and suite options, and countless entertainment opportunities, the recently remodeled Circus Circus Hotel and Casino is a true Reno favorite.

Throw in the fact that the Circus Circus has a reciprocal relationship with the Eldorado, and you’re getting twice the event and amenity space for the same price!
