This is always a great value for the money, stay in the front of the hotel if you want quick access to the front exit. It's a long walk if you stay in the back by the check in area.
The lounge area get more exciting after Thursday, it's more quiet Monday through Wednesday, then the parties start.
I come twice a year to play in the pool tournaments at the Riveria but the cost and cleanliness at Circus Circus is worth the walk.
Even the pool area is clean and worth visiting for the poo I would stay in the back rooms for easier access to the pool area.More
