“Did not like the location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It was my first trip to Las Vegas. I stopped for a few days here just to see Christmas decorations on my way home from Salt Lake City. I picked the hotel, because of cheap price and known name. I was sure it will be in the center of the city. And it was. But, the location of the hotel was not appealing at all. It's located at the end of the strip and kind of deep, away from the road. I have to pass all the casinos to get to my room (West Tower). The casinos with colorful and stinky carpets were rather annoying. I am not a player and I will not stay in this hotel again.
On a good side - room was nice and very quiet.

Room Tip: If you are do not care for casinos, I will not recommend to stay in this hotel.

This place (I have noticed) gets a bad rap. It is because it is sort of like 3 different hotels in one. We stayed in the Casino Tower and our room was clean, quiet, and perfect for us. Not super fancy but had a very comfy bed, no bugs, flat screen tv and a love seat to sit on. I kept seeing a lot of families and kids going into the other tower so I am guessing they tend to shuttle them over there. The gambling den is pretty smokey (crazy when coming from Ontario) but there are places next door that have big open window-walls so you can lose all the money you want while breathing clean air. It is at one end of the strip but you can hop on a dedicated strip bus (spend the 14 bucks for 24 hours) and go up and down all night long. It's a double decker. I hear the steak house is excellent in the hotel but didn't get a chance to go - we went to Lotus of Siam, however - aaaaaammmmaaazzzzzing food. It also helps to tip the clerk a 20 and ask for any complimentary upgrades when you check in. It is not a fancy place but more so a basic clean place.

Room Tip: Ask for the casino tower. It was (I believe) renovated in 2011.

Great hotel for your stay in Vegas, a bit dated compared to the newer hotels on the strip but don't let that put you off staying here. Only downside is it's quite a way from the main strip and Fremont street but both are easily accessible using the local bus service $8 for 24 hrs travel

Nice big , clean Casino Tower room.Good customer service.We really enjoyed our room more than anything.Used express check in for quick,efficient and polite service.Had steak and eggs at Vince Neils, it was good and a good value,but will eat in the restaurant next time,not at bar,for hopefully friendlier service.


Room Tip: pay a little more for the larger tower room

The first night they only had rooms left in "Manor C" which needs to be torn down altogether, but for our next two nights we were moved to the West Tower which was AWESOME!! GREAT Customer Service & much appreciated! PLENTY of things to do in that HUGE hotel/complex; the circus shows could be a little closer together in time since they only do one act at a time, but since my last two stays there a few years ago, there have been some updates made which I enjoyed. They DEFINITELY need to offer a discount coupon at check in for their VERY EXPENSIVE buffet, but the food overall was good, we fully enjoyed it after getting over the cost! The voucher given as an option could be for MORE than just 3 locations to be used at (ONLY 1 of which was for the very expensive steak restaurant at $20 off), the wifi had issues off & on, but appreciated that it was FREE! We walked quite a ways down to where most of the lights, hotels & happenings were instead of taking the somewhat expensive bus option(s). OVERALL, I will DEFINITELY go there again!!

Room Tip: Ask to NOT be placed in one of the "Manor" hotels ACROSS THE STREET from the main lobby &a...

Don't go! Old hotel full of roaches. No refund given. Total waste of money. They only thing that was ok was the buffet. But I was don't with that after I was killing roaches non stop. If the rooms have them. You best believe all the kitchens do as well. The circus show was great.

Stayed 4 nights driving up by car (lunch at Peggy Sue’s 50ties diner and shopping Primm outlets) after flight from Honolulu and 1 night LA. Before that repositioning cruise from Vancouver to Hawaii. Had a fantastic trip. We stayed at the Circus Circus hotel several times before. This time in one of the 'motor' buildings before flying home. Rooms still have the same decoration an old type TV but are specious and clean. Vegas always nice for the strip and shopping. We also enjoyed the Red Rock Canyon someone in Hawaii told us about.

Room Tip: For a Las Vegas view book in the tower part. Otherwise same kind of room anyway.
