Atlantis Casino Resort
Not The Peppermill
We stayed at this Casino/Resort/Hotel for 1 night in June, 2011. Room was a winning bid on Priceline. Room was clean, fairly recently redecorated, nice but not up to recent Peppermill standards. TV was older tube type, not very large. Pool area consists of two pools, one indoors which is very large and one outdoors. There is also a large jacuzzi adjacent to the outside pool. Both are on the same floor, 6th I believe. Both are nice, however the decor of the outside area is a bit old looking. While quite nice, the pools do not compare to the newly built and renovated pools of the Peppermill. The gym is much, much smaller than the Peppermill's but does have new equipment, many machines wth personal TVs w/Direct TV. While I prefer the Peppermill overal to this Casino/Hotel, the Atlantis is still an excellent choice with an excellent Buffet restaurant, consistently rates as Reno's best buffet.
Update: We stayed at this Casino/Resort again in Oct, 2011. Again it was a winning Priceline bid. This time we stayed in a newly remodeled room in a different wing and the room was Excellent! Every bit as nice as the Peppermill. Very comfortable beds, big flat screen TV, free wifi. Excellent price if you can get it on a Priceline bid for around $55-$65.
Unique Quality: The Atlantis provides free extended parking and free airport shuttle. While many of the Reno Casinos provide this convenience, The Atlantis provides free parking up to 6 weeks, much longer than most, if you stay one night prior to departure or upon return, which may be a big motivator for locals and nearby out of towners flying out of Reno. Huge indoor swimming pool is a BIG plus in winter months, in addition to an outdoor pool and jacuzzi.
Directions: On South virginia Street, south of the Peppermill, east side of street.
Not a good hotel for non-smokers or kids
This hotel has very bad air quality. Everywhere you go in the hotel -- you smell smoke. Even in their non-smoking rooms, which by the way, had ashtrays in them! If you are a non-smoker or have kids, don't come here, you will hate it.
Unique Quality: too smokey
Is it cheaper?
This non-downtown hotel is one of a growing number of hotels that advertises a low rate then adds a resort fee only disclosed at check in that in fact makes there rate about the same as everyone. Personally I would never stay here again just on the principle of things, however the rooms are clean ( even in the motor lodge, the cheaper alternative) and the facilities are nice. However most every thing in the hotel involves an additional charge.
Unique Quality: Don't be fooled by low advertised rate! A resort fee will be added that will make it just as expensive as anywhere else.
Bring Your Wallet
The Atlantis is a nice Hotel. It is very big and the casino is never ending. The rooms are nice, nothing major to write home about, but nice.
The breakfast buffett is very yummy. If you cannot find it there, you won't find it anywhere. Also, the crab legs in othe oyster bar are WONDERFUL!!!!! And the blue martinis will knock your socks off. HMMMM!!!!!
The casino was not very kind to us, but it was still fun. It is very easy to get turned around in there though, so pick a good landmark so you can make an easy "Lets get the heck out of here before we loose the kids college money" escape.
Unique Quality: They have a great covered walk way that takes you accross the highway and right into a great shopping center. The supper market came in handy since every thing you eat or drink in the hotel will cost you an arm and a leg.

I got a room here using Expedia for a great price. I was worried before checking in, that it would be a dump. I was very pleased with the place.
Directions: You can see the Atlantis Tower as you drive away from the airport.
Gambling Report - Video Poker and Live Poker
We visited Atlantis just for gambling, so if you're looking for a Hotel review, Restaurants or Night Life sorry, I can't help you :-(
I played Texas Hold'em in the poker room and Chris played Quarter video poker.
Poker room is good sized by Reno standards, about 8 tables if I remember correctly. No smoking. Mostly playing 3/6 and 4/8 with a small No Limit game nightly ($200 max $50 min buyin).
Small $15 buyin daily tournament ,Texas Hold'em, at Noon. one hour shootout. Two table maximum. One winner per table.
I'll give the Poker room a 5 on style, and a 2 on substance for lack of real tournaments.
They offer a lot of full-pay machines including JOB, NSUD (no FPDW that we saw), DB, progressive JOB, and BP.
If you don't know what I'm talking about email me and I'll explain video poker to you :-) If you play machines, it's way better than slots!
One caution about VP at Atlantis and all over Reno. Max Play isn't always just 5 coins on many machines. If you're accustomed to putting in a big bill and hitting max play you could find yourself playing $20 a hand on dollar VP vs. $5.
Video poker ranking 4.5! It's a solid play.
Unique Quality: Upscale place, one of the top 3 or 4 in town. Nice decore, clean, friendly staff.
Directions: South of downtown Reno, past the Peppermill.
1. You can drive all the way down Virginia, or 2. can take US-395 to Virginia, and turn back North on Virginia or
3. can take McCaran Rd. to Virginia and turn back N. on Virginia
At The End of the Rainbow
They had Tanya Tucker in concert last month. Nice of them.
Unique Quality: Luck would have it someone I know won $3,000 over at the Atlantis 12 hours after I took this picture. Not me... alas!
