I would stay here again! We loved it. Great space for the pets, great amenities, nice heated pool, and it was CLEAN! Good price and friendly people. We liked the buffet, which was within easy walking distance from the park. Lots of things to do inside the casino: bowling, movies, retail stores and restaurants. Walking distance to a Super Walmart (just across the street). Free shuttles to the main strip, and to and from the airport (important 'cause we went there to get a good price on a rental car}. LOVED IT!
Very poorly appointed grounds for a premium price. The staff was very friendly and amenable, however there was little to no "perks" for being at a site on "The Strip". Upon asking why there was no cable tv available we were informed that Circus Circus wanted us in gambling so they wouldn't provide it. Circus Circus doesn't provide any type of shuttle service on the strip, so you must have a tow vehicle or rent a car for the duration of your stay. There was a very nice "clubhouse" with a large screen tv and computer bank along with free wi-fi. As a whole, if you don't intend on spending your time within Circus Circus gambling, this is not the place for you!
Upon arriving late at this age restricted community, with no reservations, we were charged full price to spend the night in a parking lot -- pending an assigned space in the morning. The gentleman that parked us that night; did so with military precision, standing right upon the left side view mirror as we parked our RV. He seemed to have no regard for the possibility of loosing a foot in the maneuver.. . Not having been given any suggestions or alternatives to where we should walk our pets the next morning, we considerately kept the pets tightly leashed and vigilantly grabbed all solid excavations as quickly as they were released. However, this wasn't enough for a piece of flotsam in the pool who crassly accused us of allowing our pets to run helter skelter across the shuffleboard court (not even a infinitesimal possibility that we would have ever done it.). Once we were parked in our assigned spot (again directed with military precision) there were signs for don'ts (NO PETS ALLOWED PAST this point, and NO SMOKING PAST THIS POINT) clearly posted throughout the park. This further intensified the feeling of visiting someone who really didn't want you there to begin with. Most of the workers we talked with were congenial and considerate. However the feeling that there are some tightly wound people directing the environment, in which they are most likely; temporary residents, pervaded our interpretation of this tense "resort". We not only would NOT go back, but would advise anyone who appreciates the art of good manners and hospitality to give it a second thought, as Valle Del Oro anything but inviting and relaxing.
