    My sister is temporarily confined to a wheelchair and as such has limited mobility. I'm taking her on vacation after Easter and I thought a road trip south to Reno for a couple days midweek would be a good option.

    I'm thinking the Altantis or Peppermill would both work. She would prefer the Atlantis most likely since it's less smoky and brighter with more name brand penny slots and I would prefer the Peppermill since it's decor is bonkers and it seems a bit more old-school. Either way I'm sure we would both be happy as long as we could get either an adjoined handicapped and second room or a handicapped room with 2 queens.

    So in the end it will probably come down to which casino has better comps and an easier to navigate property.

    Any practical knowledge would be appreciated.

    I can't speak for the Peppermill since I haven't been in many years. They've since renovated and added on a lot of square footage. I stay and play 100% at the Atlantis. Comps at Atlantis are great for table games but can't speak to slot-related comps. The casino floor is not the most obvious but once you walk through a couple times, it's easy to navigate. They have 2 non smoking sections for the machines if that matters. The high ceilings in the table game area does make a difference with the smokiness.

    I've heard the food at Peppermill is good but I know the food at the Atlantis is consistently good. I particularly like the pastrami at the Manhattan deli and the happy hour plates in their casual fine dining place, Bistro Napa. Bistro Napa's bar happy hour also has half off liquor which was really great when I first got into single malt scotch and other whiskies. Lots to try for relatively cheap. We hit the steakhouse for 28 day aged beef every other trip or so. The coffee shop is solid.

    I'm pretty sure that all of the Reno Casinos are wheelchair accessible. I know the getting from Circus Circus through Silver Legacy and El Dorado on the 2nd floor is a snap. There's even a wheelchair only elevator by the El Dorado fountains that goes up and down the 5 feet in difference from the top of the stairs to the bottom. Navigating shouldn't be a problem at all I would think.
