“Hard to rate... Awesome casino and horrible room!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

I have to say that I had a blast spending the week here with my entire family. My 3 daughters went and all my grandchildren. We choose Circus Circus because we thought it might have a lot to offer us since we were a mixed group, of both children and adults alike. Oh but no......

First the good: All the gran kids got to have a blast. Warm pool that was not too big, but I could see them swimming the whole time. Lots of games, rides, and attractions around for them and affordable buffet.

Now the ugly: The rooms are old and in need of major renovation. I guess that is to be expected of primarily a children hotel?? I mean the carpet was stained and the linens were worn out. The bathroom tile chipped and stained. Just completely in need of a face lift.

So would I stay here again?? If they gutted the room for sure! I hope to stay here again and looking forward to what their future holds!

If you are going to Vegas to party, visit, sightseeing or whatever it is and you want to stay in a good, pretty and cheap hotel, this is it. Is like a wannabe 5 stars but is not but you feel like you are in a 5 star.

Room Tip: Booked thru southwest vacations.

Room was clean and convenient but hallways smelled so bad of smoke and what I think was stale alcohol .. Don't think we would stay there again as it's was not quite our cup of tea... Buffet was lovely and staff were nice but having to hold your breath to walk a hallway is not my idea of fun

I brought my family to Vegas so we could enjoy the summer like conditions. My son had a lot of fun at Midway and the Adventuredome. He loved the carnival games and the rides. The Auntie Anne's there was also great, and we had a good lunch there. I do have a couple of complaints. First, the room was slightly dirty, and the TV was old. 2nd, the buffet is not that good, and the casino is very loud. Overall, a nice hotel.

Room Tip: Choose the Casino Tower.
