I used to stay at Circus Circus in the past and was quite happy about it, but lately it has gone downhill. My stay was in January during one of the big trade shows so prices went up to a level of where you just feel robbed compared to what you get. I was still living at the hotel after the show was over and my review will be for the average experience.
Front desk personel did the best they could, but were heavily over run by all guests trying to check in. It was annoying waiting for your turn after looking for a place to park for the last hour - hotel parking was packed and forget about valet - it was full already at 5pm.
Rooms were alright to just crash in, but nothing more. Bathroom old and outdated and smelled funny, even though I through the 20 dollar trick got "upgraded". Room was supposed to be smoke free but reeked as a coffee shop in Amsterdam. Beds were nice though, not too hard - not too soft. No mini bar, bad reception on the TV and no hotel information available in the rooms - not even a 'do not disturb' sign. When I come think about it - there was no large towels, only one pillow and no blankets (which you need since the AC was stuck at blizzard)
Restaurant which I remember to be one or two steps over 'alright' has moved down to 'bad' and the food felt it was re-heated, uninspiring and tasteless. Waitresses were... well, let's leve it there.
So why 2 stars. Actually - if you consider where the hotel is located, and how much you pay to live there - it's pretty good value and would deserve a 3. If you, like me, end up there during a huge trade show - value is 1. So - average rating is 2.
