Reno: Circus Circus, Silver Legacy or Eldorado

Have to go to Reno for a convention next month. Which of these has the best rooms?
They're all similarly priced around 100$ incl resort fee. The Marriott options in town are about 3x the price.

Circus Circus rooms seem to have been recently renovated? However Trip Advisor rates the other two higher.

Silver Legacy is my favorite of the three.

My experience is 15 years old, but at that time I would have agreed heartily.

Ended up staying at the Circus Circus. Room was indeed recently renovated, it was basic but totally fine. Did not enjoy "the hub" of the three hotels. If pricing isn't prohibitive would recommend staying at the Renaissance downtown. I was pleasantly surprised by downtown Reno and the riverwalk area.

The Renaissance is definitely the nicest hotel in town, although I've heard good things from those who've stayed at the Whitney Peak. "The Row" or whatever they're calling it has a few things going for it as a lodging choice: 1) price, 2) ample free parking, 3) they occasionally host festivals (BBQ fest, wing fest, and the Italian Festival next weekend!). I also rather enjoy the free circus acts on the Midway at Circus Circus... and the monorail!

I'm from Reno and my favorite is Grand Sierra Resort. The monorail at Circus Circus is fly though. I've never stayed at any of these since I live in Reno, and I only go for leisure.
