“Great for families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Stayed here with 2 children aged 13 and 15. Lots to do with the circus, indoor theme park, swimming pools, shops, restaurants etc etc. Is a massive hotel so can take a while to get around. Our rooms were fine, with 2 double beds and clean, modern bathroom, along with satellite TV and a view across the strip. Overall you get what you pay for, and I was happy with what we got for our money.

We had stayed at Circus Circus twice before, in 2001 and again in 2005. At that time, we were impressed with how it looked. This time, we were disappointed. The carpets all appear in need of replacement, getting dirty. The room itself was clean and we had no complaints there. Overall, the hotel seems to be decaying a little.

I stayed with my 77-year old mother and my girlfriend from Aug. 19-28th and found the staff to be extremely friendly and responsive.I am a big fan of the Sports Book at Circus Circus and this trip was no exception. They went out of their way to make all of my transactions as easy as possible.
Sure will come back in the future.

Booked Circus Circus for our 4 night visit to Las Vegas, this was leg 3 of our 'trip of a lifetime' tour of the US. Our children are 15 and 11 and were very excited about visiting all the attractions and sights of the Las Vegas Strip. You can easilly spend several days only in the Circus Circus Hotel complex it is vast with many dining and entertainment options.
Best comment is the price, the hotel was incredibly good value and we feared the worst but, for the price the room is functional and was more than adequate for our needs as a base for our tour of Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. Check in is functional and quick, every hotel charges a resort fee. The Staff weren,t the most cheerful but given the huge turnover in people that is understandable. You are given a simplistic map at check in and then the first 'entertainment' is finding the correct Lifts for your allocated room. The Hotel is made up of three towers and the external Rv park. Accessing the towers is via the central amenities area (Adventure dome) where all the dining options entertainment and casinos are. There is only direct access to the Casino Tower from the Lobby but, all the hotels funnel customers via the casinos etc as you soon learn that LV is dedicated to extracting cash from customers as quickly and efficiently as possible! Everything in LV is huge so even the walk from our room to the Lobby would take 15 mins. Also (pretty standard in LV) there are no amenities at all in the rooms, no fridge or coffee machine so, of course you have to go down to the adventure dome area to spend. Having said that there are reasonably priced snacks and drinks in many of the souvenir shops and the Do-nut shop did the best latte coffee. For breakfast there are many take out options available or you can eat in at the buffet for $13 per person. There are extensive choices at the buffet so we certainly did not need lunch!
As we had a very hectic schedule we tried to factor in some 'down time' at the Pool area, there are good value food and drink options available however, the Pools themselves were foul, it seemed there was inadequate filtration or cleaning of the water and we had to keep the children out of the pool for fear of ear infections, not easy in 100 degree heat. This is the only negative comment of the Circus Circus Hotel complex otherwise I would rate it ideal for families.
The free Circus entertainment is excellent and the Childrens Arcade is something to see. You play the games to win tickets which you then exchange for prizes. The indoor rides are best value with the all day wrist band. We kept these on all day so we could leave the Hotel and use the rides again in the evening.
The location of Circus Circus does seem a little remote but the 'Strip' is so vast that even getting around from the middle is protracted. Prices in the 'main' part of the Strip are several times more expensive than CC.
Overall Circus Circus is exceptionally good value with lots of choice for dining and entertainment, only negative for us was the poor quality of the water in the swimming pool.

I've stayed at this hotel before, but never when there were so many kids. All in all it was a nice stay. Robert helped me bypass the long line checking in. I have a problem getting around and standing to long. Thanks Robert. The Hot tub/pool was wonderful for my aching body. The Garden grill and the buffet were excellent. The Headliner store where I picked up a daily newspaper had 2 wonderful ladies -Leslie and I can't remember the other lady. They took good care of me. I have 2 minor issues. The ice machine kept breaking down and there should have been a more comfortable arm chair in the room to sit in. A desk chair is not comfy for a person w/back/hip problems. Otherwise it was an enjoyable stay and will stay there again.

Room Tip: The skyrise tower is closer to the pool.

Room (West tower) Air conditioning was too bad. Its noisy. Otherwise excellent. If you visit Las Vegas with kids, this is a nice hotel. Indoor amusement park is excellent not only in rainy season but also in hottest summer season. We enjoyed a lot without going out of the hotel.

Room Tip: Have no idea.

We stayed at Circus Circus for 2 nights as part of our itinerary on a 3 day tour. Since it was a group stay, we were given the rooms near the adventure dome area and not the main area. The tour operator did not explain this fact clearly, and we only realized on the 2nd night that the hotel was huge! The shopping arcade, the main casino and the whole atmosphere of the place was full of activity and fun. We had a great time in the hotel itself as there was lots to see and the restaurants were serving great food at reasonable prices. The room itself was average..no coffee maker and not so usable soaps and cream! we had to purchase our own. Dont know if this was because we were in group stay or all rooms have the substandard toiletries. On the whole recommended for 1-2 night stay for the price. One point though- there were only 2 lifts going up to the rooms on our floor- 20th- and they were so slow and crowded that one had to wait half an hour to finally go up! Surely the hotel can arrange for a better means of going up when there is a group check in.

Room Tip: Make sure the room is on the main area!

Green Features: The room was cleaned without our request and the toiletries need to be improved!
