“Family oriented property”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

This property is one the few in Las Vegas, that has something for the whole family. The entertainment areas have been expanded and are relatively cheap compared to other newer attractions. The property, itself, could use some upgrading but, all in all, not a bad place for a short stay.

Great for kids. So many things to do in hotel, arcade, swimming. There's No need to have them walking up and down the streets exposing children to heat and adult themes. I know how kids love to be eating snacks, to cut down on unnecessary expenses I took popcorn, chips ect. Even instant macaroni and cheese cups and some instant foods and used the coffee maker for hot water. Don't judge me.

We stayed for 3 nights (literally just to sleep) which should be exactly all you need in a hotel in vegas. We stayed in the skyrise tower. Check-in was fairly simple. Room was clean. Bed was comfy. Sheets were clean. Quiet. Only issue my boyfriend and I had was that the room was soooo far away. You literally have to walk through a casino area, mall, theme park and then somehow find the elevator to your room. We quickly found that this hotel does not want you to be able to find your room- to keep you out buying things. Expect lots of children and families on your trek to your room each time. This hotel has a small pool (we did not go to it-but could see it on our drive out each day). Plenty of parking also. The bus stop for the deuce is right outside the hotel on the vegas strip. It was not a far bus ride into the heart of the strip. This hotel is not really far from everything- we rode early in the day and late at night and always felt safe.

For someone who was a gambler, they wouldn't care about the hotel because the casino was just like any other, however for a family the circus circus was awful. The casinos stank of cigarettes every time that made you want to be sick, I understand it's legal but other hotels didn't. There was no choice of food so we ended up eating in the opposite hotel, the Riviera. The rooms were bad, the bed was okay but there was no fridge or shampoos which when you pay for luxury you should receive and the location was bad because you were right at the end of the strip and the hotel was so far back. There was a theme park that had hundreds of rides for toddlers and 2 roller coasters, however the price was obscene $100 per person! My recommendation for any family is to go somewhere further up the strip eg Caesars palace or the tropicana because you might pay more but it will definitely be worth it!
