                • Family with children

                  It doesn't have the restraunts, buffets, and attractions it needs for as far away from "the strip" as it is. The pool is so so, the rooms are small and noisy. It took us an hour to check in and the line really wasn't all that long. It is not a destination spot- it is just a cheap room.

                • Group of friends

                  Rooms were very nice, beds comfortable.

                  The check in staff were not friendly at all and gave the impression they were a bit above everyone. I have stayed in some very expensive hotels and have never seen this.Perhaps they need some instructions on common hospitality and friendliness.

                  Very good food. Casino had some opportunities for inexpensive play. Grand Suite was very nice, with a great view.

                  Slow elevators. Difficulty parking.

                  Was there for a bowling tournament. The best thing was the bowling alley was in the casino.

                  Check in was at 3pm, room was not ready until after 4:30 pm, was told I would receive a phone call when room was ready, no call. No opening windows, charged $5 a day for use of a fridge. Ice/vending machines only on certain floors. $11.99 resort fee and I get is 2 bottles of water and wi-fi !!!!!

                  Everything was available there! The bowling alley was really fun! & the room was huge!! :)

                  The fact that not all the restaurants were open around noon.. Oh and shades for parking. You guys need to make a parking garage!!!

                  The Event Center and Staff were excellent!!! We had a great visit. Meals expensive, but had cheaper pizza and sandwich places for the kids on the A floor. Had a great deal of activities for families. Would request arcade stay open later on weekends instead of running families out at 10:30. Our room was sweet! Thank goodness for the refrigerator in our room since the food prices were high and most eating establishments were on the casino floor. Bathrooms to die for and the maid staff were very detailed. We would definately stay again, but maybe during the week as the cost was high. The best thing on the Sierra is it was not on the strip and parking was safe, and it was inclusive so you did not need to leave during a convention. Convenience and safety were our main reasons for staying.

                  Arcade closes too early on the weekend. Most food places were on the casino floor and priced too high. Had friends staying in the cheaper rooms 4th floor- had no ironing board, or coffe maker.. Sad they had to use ours 15 floors up...Seems like they need to do their homework and see what the people want... our friends will stay at the La Quinta next time.. cheaper and has all of the aminities. Stayed in Windover, NV on the way to Reno and on the way home...The Montigo Bay beats the Sierra in nearly everything except Location. Price for the same quality of room Was 1/3 the price. Plus food and buffets were way better. Sierra was good, but better wasn't hard to find.

                  There was plenty going on at the hotel as far as entertainment. The room was comfortable. There are a variety of restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful

                  Well as a non-smoker I didn't like that the entire hotel smelled of smoke but when there is smoking allowed in a facility then it is an inevitability that everything will smell of cigarette smoke.
