So we take a trip every year to Circus Circus for our anniversary. We stay there because of the midway that our 9 year old loves to go play at. This year we realized that the food has started to really go down hill. The breakfast buffet is only open during select days which was a real bummer especially during... More

This is a great place to stay when traveling with children. The midway is lots of fun for the whole family and it's easy to win most games. The rooms are pleasant and clean, just not very updated. The kids loved the tram to the the elevators for the rooms. The valet parking is free and the rooms are very... More

The rooms were decent, although not for the price. I booked a block of rooms for a certain price. When the bill came (day before we were to check in) it was a good $900.00 more because of resort fees, resort taxes, local taxes, room taxes etc. Just be careful when booking here as the price includes NOTHING except for...

Circus Circus used to be primarily a destination for families and while it still is a great place for families, they've really improved everything, so it's not one of those kid friendly places where others wouldn't feel comfortable. Everything about the resort has really improved, plus they are connected up directly to El Dorado and Silver Legacy, so you don't... More

My cousins and I stayed here for one night and it was really enjoyable. We had great fun exploring this hotel. We went all the way up to the top floor to take pictures of the city (as we do for all the hotels we stay in). I do find it quite odd that most of the hotels that we... More

If you got kids stay here. Nice clean rooms and friendly staff. There is plenty for kids of all ages to do. We have a 4 and 2 year old. They had a blast at the arcade and watching the liver dog shows.

Can't believe how many families with small children stay at Circus Circus. Very smokey, noisy and crowded over a weekend. Would never take young children there for a vacation. Games are way too expensive too. Long walk from the Sky Tower to Casino and other parts of the hotel although they do have a monorail. Will spend more and stay... More

Circus, Circus was in a great location, clean, and staff very friendly. We stayed in north tower. Great view from 21st floor. Ate at Geckos, great food and service. Hotel is within walking distance to bowling center. Rented a car and toured a Lake Tahoe, a must see!

Very good service and excellent value. The only issue was that the ATM machines do not work with Chase bank and caused me to go to the cashier and do a draft which costs $.5.99 to do. Other than that stay was enjoyable.
