“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

As a front line travel agent i had heard all the bad reviews about Circus and decided to find out my self and stay here for 10 days out of my trip because it was great value, Can i say i don't know what people are talking about...I had stayed at the Luxor previously and found Circus to be much better!! Walked in and the friendly staff helped me to the bag and showed me where to go for my room, the room was basic but clean and had an amazing view of the strip. The buffet was amazing and the little shops scattered through out the store had good prices!! I found freemont street to be much better than the strip so we just cabbed it out every night we wanted to go out, I urge you have a look around because its not for everyone but i really enjoyed my stay here.

Room Tip: Slots of fun is a great way to get free drinks!!

Great rooms, good food, friendly staff down side there were no refrigerators in the roomsto keep cold drinks on hand. Cleaning staff was great made sure you had what you needed they respected your time in the room and came later to clean no matter what time you left out.

This is a very dated and antiquated hotel. The facade is fading from many years in the sun. The rooms are outdated and I wouldn't walk around in my bare feet. We had someone in the room next door hollering, crying, slamming doors and drawers. We didn't have hot water to take a shower on the day we left. The beds were comfortable if you like sinking in the middle. The food at the buffet was nothing special. You can get better deals at other hotels on the strip. This hotel was far away from the strip and if you take a short walk outside, you may need to walk over bums sleeping on the sidewalk. I didn't feel safe walking a couple blocks past the hotel. If you want a cheap hotel and don't mind the smell of citrus chemicals outside the amusement park and the noise of kids, this hotel is for you. It is actually a great place to take kids if you want some fun.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Skyline Tower on one of the upper floors which gave a decent view of a couple casin...

Aside from being closer to the end of the Strip rather than in the middle, it was a great location that provided easy access to all of the attractions on the Strip. The room was clean and very comfortable and the service was outstanding. The casino games, shopping, restaurants, and carnival rides were fantastic and I look forward to returning, soon. Thank you for a wonderful first-time Vegas experience, Circus Circus!

This location is VERY dated and VERY dirty in places. The rooms had very old and dirty furniture. The Adventure dome was clean but had a funny chemical smell. The casino and midway were clean but also very dated. If you are looking for a cheap place to stay in Vegas this would be OK, but I would NOT want to take my family there to stay.

This tattered, ill-managed DEBACLE should tear down everything but the two towers and rebuild. Had booked a 5 night travel package through Alaskan Air. Where to begin... Check-in took way too long with a LONG line roped off. They have so many mis-allocated personnel standing around in different areas, they should triple the size of the staff at RECEPTION. Check-out was supposed to be easily done on your TV. Only problem was, the numbers on the bedside card did NOT match the ones on the screen. After I finally hacked my way onto the check-out screen, I discovered they had double-billed for the room, which was paid IN ADVANCE on an Alaskan Airlines FULL PACKAGE. Anyway, when I returned home, I straighted out the "error" with AMEX in about 10 minutes. Just an "honest," occasional mistake, right? Same exact thing happened to my business partner whom was staying across the hall. He went down to the lobby to correct his bill and had to wait in line for 50 minutes. When I called AMEX, they said this billing practice occurs more often than not... I guess we shouldn't expect any integrity from a Casino, after all. Another stupid thing is the "resort coupon book." It is worthless. This hotel should just charge a fair room rate and be done with it! The moment you set foot in any of their gaming areas, you feel an distinct air of desperation, Bugsey style and decor... The best thing for them to do is start all over from scratch and build a new Casino with perhaps 100 FRENCH Roulette Wheels... They could solve all their woes on that 2.8% "0"... I suggest you stay at ANY other Casino until this place finds a decent management team.

Room Tip: Casino Tower Rooms have been remodeled and are quiet. Make sure you set your A/C fan to LOW or the...

When we booked this hotel we didn't realise how wonderful it was for all of us, there is so much to see, great places to eat and it is walkable to get to the centre of Las Vegas. There are two swimming pools and plenty of other things for both adults and children to do.
