“Circus Circus - At a busy time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

So I went here with a buddy of mine for the UFC 148 and UFC Fan EXPO. As we are young adults we have no problem walking but keep in mind this was July the hottest month averaging 40 degrees. The room itself was spacious with 2 beds, a safe for our belongings, ironing board and good size bathroom. Like people have mentioned it's not the newest of hotels but it was a lot more than I expected considering the price we got it for. We had NO trouble sleeping and while the linen wasnt the most comfortable the temperature throughout the whole day was good.

Now as for location it is farther up north...but NOT as bad as say Stratusphere. If you don't mind taking the double decker or express bus there is an exit between slots o fun that is right at las vegas blvd road. From there your pretty close to the main strip i'd say 4-5 stops. Keep in mind this strip gets busy during peak times and it can take up to half an hour to get to say Luxor. July is hot so instead of being cheap we would sometimes take a cab..not so bad if you split and we both agreed a little cash on a cab is far better than getting head exhaustion or burned. That's prob my greatest advice to anyone..just fork up the cash and go cab somewhere to avoid the heat, don't let it ruin your trip.

All in all it's more than I expected and had no problems with the hotel...it is just a lil old. Oh tons of kids everywhere it's pretty funny to see.

Had a great deal for a 4-day/3-night stay which was good. However, upon approaching the hotel my teenage girls were asking "is this it?" This hotel is in dire need of upgrades, even if just for the outside appearance. It looks very old and outdated. Though, the rooms are decent and clean (even though they've just upgraded their rooms?). We didn't have a view at all (we stayed in the Casino Tower). Looking out of our room window was nothing but the view of rooftop contraptions. I also thought that the AdventureDome all-day wristbands were overpriced for the few rides that are available. And for it being one of the few "kid-friendly" hotels on/near the strip it was way too smoky inside walking through any parts of the lobby areas, gift shops, and other public areas. My girls and I had to virtually hold our breath every time we walked through. The pool is far too complicated to get to from inside the hotel. We had to take 3-4 different elevators to go 3 levels down! They also advertise a "circus act" approx. every 30 minutes upstairs from the main floor in the Midway arcade area. The seating area to view the act is so small we thought we were missing something. So we walked around the arcade waiting for the show to start (because we realized there were other areas you would still be able to view the show from without being in the direct seating area) & when the act came on it was all of 5 minutes! We thought the shows would be about 15-20 minutes at least. The one thing I really did appreciate & was grateful for was the fantastic customer service & pleasant staff. From check-in to check-out, the house-cleaning staff, and all other staff we encountered during our stay were friendly, professional, and courteous. I've never stayed at Circus Circus before but glad to have had the experience. I won't be staying there again.

Room Tip: Don't get a room in the Casino Tower unless you don't desire a view of anything.

I stayed here while attending a convention in town...the special was $25.00, to good to be true is an understatement. one the 1st night there the fire alarm went off and we were rushed out of our rooms to a central location only to find it was some drunk ho pulled the alarm as a joke, co compensation for the inconvenience, then when I was switched to a non-smoking room after my 1st night, because none was available at check in, they put me in a smoking room again and I woke up ill every morning and sick from the air in my room. I am allergic to cigarette smoke! it was noisy, stinky, uncomfortable and miserable!

Room Tip: don't stay here if it is a business trip!

The room was of good size, quite basic but adequately clean and comfortable. Hotel is at far-end of strip but not a problem if you are happy walking. Hotel is rather dated and in need of an upgrade but was very family friendly and had a good atmosphere.

We booked here because it was cheap. Very old hotel, trying to keep up with the bigger hotels,but not even close, pretty run down rooms, but clean. Ok for kids, with the circus events and stuff.
At the far far end of the strip, too far to walk. If you are planning just to sleep here, then it is ok, but
Not a good central location for exploring Vegas.

Why is it called Circus Circus if nothing in there is even remotely circus like?
Good Rooms, bad crowd. Didn't care for it.
