Guide Review - Casino Reno - 'The Peppermill' - Guide Review
The Peppermill casino in Reno, Nevada is arguably the finest resort with a casino in Northern Nevada. The property began forty years ago as a small restaurant along South Virgina Street with an old motel and a few slot machines. After ten years the property added a single 21 table. Well look at the resort now!
With a new AAA Four Diamond award, it isn't just this reviewer who sees the many wonderful attributes of the Peppermill Resort Spa. In fact, it's hard to find anything wrong with the property, other than it has grown to a size large enough to get lost in, and the restaurant prices are a bit high - for Reno. For other large cities across the US, the prices are quite reasonable.
Many Reno properties do have a resort fee, and the Peppermill charges $10 plus tax per room night. The fee pays for things like Internet access the Internet Cafe, in-room coffee, complimentary business center access, up to five pages of incoming and outgoing faxes, use of the health club, pool, valet, concierge, local and 800 phone calls, and shuttle service to and from the airport.
The property is away from the downtown area, so you can not walk to the other Reno casinos, but there is plenty to do at the resort. It is located just ten minutes from the airport and the same distance from Meadowood Mall, which has everything you might want from a big city mall.
Hotel rooms are reasonably priced and well-appointed. For those of you from big cities, the rates will seem cheap. Meals are also reasonable, but on the high-end for Reno properties. The quality is unsurpassed.The Casino
If you love slot machines, the property boasts a total of 1,900. Many are brand new, with total video and bonus screens. Following the standard of Northern Nevada casinos, there is a predominance of video poker games with all denominations and styles from stand-alone games to Game King, Game Maker and plenty of linked progressives.
For sports enthusiasts, the race and sports book features 100 screens of action. Horse race parimutuel booking with large and small screens is available with comfortable seating. All major sporting events are available for viewing. Current games and futures betting is also on hand for all players.Poker Room
