“Basic but not bad.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

This hotel is very spacious, the location on the strip is perfect but other than that, it doesn't have much going for it these days.

It used to be one of the top hotels in Vegas, the decor inside must still be from that era, as it desperately needs modernising.
The facilities inside the Casino is good, not the best but good, and the pizza house is actually delicious. The indoor themepark (only in Vegas??) is good if you have kids or you yourself like a thrill ride, but this was quite busy as when we went we didn't realise it was the American holiday 'thanks giving' so there was a lot of families about and kids running riot.

Overall not a bad place but could do better.

Stayed here twice. Once in 1999 then again in 2012. It was pretty much as I remembered it. Yes, it could do with a little updating but I found the service pleasant, accommodation to be great value for money and slept well my entire stay. It was clean and comfortable. The rooms were well serviced every day.

Good value for the money spent. Carpet needed replacing in my hotel room (carpet was old and worn out), but everything else at the hotel/casino was fine. The free circus acts each day will be enjoyable to many.

We had an amazing trip to Vegas! So glad we didn't listen to any negative reviews. We stayed in the West Tower. All of Vegas smells smokey to Californians, but our room smelled fine! The kids loved the Midway and the Adventuredome. The McD's inside Midway is cheaper than at home. Blue Iguana has large servings. Balloon artist at Rockin Rita's was incredible! Gift shops were cheaper than Bonanza. Visited many other hotels while sightseeing, but we were so glad we stayed here! Enjoy your trip!

Room Tip: Maids do come early, so put out your Do Not Disturb sign. There are little air vents in the windows...

I enjoyed the newly renovated rooms. I stayed in the Casino Tower. Clean and comfortable. Nice staff. Ate at Garden Grill- Good food. I received my room free from MyVegas Slots on Facebook. Made the trip even better. Great atmosphere. Would stay again. Prices are great.

Circus Circus needs to be remodeled. We enjoyed the circus acts throughout the day. The buffet for dinner was very tasty. The smoke coming from the casino was too much. Great customer service at the front desk.
