Some of the best hotels and casinos in the Reno area aren't in downtown Reno... they're in Sparks (next door city) or South Reno near shopping and restaurants. Hotel casinos like the Atlantis, Peppermill, & John Ascuaga's Nugget give you a different view of the Reno / Tahoe area and sometimes better prices.

John Ascuaga's Nugget
Reno's next-door city of Sparks has great hotels and plaza activities. The Nugget is top notch and highly recommended...
