We spent 11 days in Vegas last August, and 2 of those days were a Friday and Saturday, hence the prices soared in Vegas for those two nights. Circus Circus was the cheapest, however we regret it, because we had just spent the 2 nights beforehand in the Encore at the Wynn! Aside from the burning heat to walk that far with our suitcases, the hotel was simply not near anything we wished to visit. The only upside is that our grand canyon tour picked us up from there Saturday morning. We stayed in a manor motor room, and I think it was called a motor room because the air conditioner in there sounded like a jet plane engine running and clunking/ticking all night. In the room next to us we had some fighting Mexicans or Cubans (they were yelling in Spanish), whom were banging the walls and doors and crying/screaming for most of the night. It got so bad we called hotel security at around 1am because we were concerned.
As for the room itself, the bathroom was rusty, along with the pipes leading to it. The bed was so hard you could feel each spring in your back (that being said we had just spent the preceding nights in luxurious king beds with down pillows/doonas...). The door to enter the building itself only worked sometimes when you scanned your key card, and the elevator had mouldy carpet and smelt like puke or bubblegum (depending on which of the two was working at the time).
The gambling area is a bit of fun (there is a bar in a truck trailor and a carasoule pokies), and there is a cheap pizza diner, but as for sleeping and staying there I would not recommend this hotel.
We also stayed at the MGM Grand, New York New York, the Stratosphere & The Ecore at the Wynn. I would recommend all except for the stratosphere, which was not enjoyable.
