“Oldie but a goodie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The hotel and casino are kind of older but the room we stayed in was in excellent condition, the towels and lindens we great, bed was comfy. It's located at the northern end of Las Vegas blvd. so we were a little off from all the main attractions. We booked through American Airlines as a package and got a super steal on the room. Over all we really enjoyed our stay.

We normally stay at Excalibur when we go to Vegas with the Grandchildren but thought we would try Circus Circus as they advertise for families, won't stay there again. Rooms were dated, not super clean, and the hotel/casino is not really children friendly. Better rooms and much more family friendly at Excalibur. Better deals in other hotels for families.

Room Tip: we were in the tower at the back by the pool and rides - not impressed with the rooms over there o...

I enjoyed that the hotel offered daily CIRCUS show,also the under the big dome arcade and rides such as the water log ride.They also had a Nathan's hot dog stand inside love Nathan's hot dogs.
I tried my hand at some of the slot machines,did win a little not a big gambler but did try.i truly enjoyed walking the strip admiring all the hotels. I went inside each and every one.Thank god they have escalators outside to get to another hotel without having to cross the busy highway.I will bring my daughters next time I go this was one of the places I wanted to go that was on my bucket list,now done it.

We had prepaid our room but were still hit by a "resort fee" of $10. Their system also is set-up so that you need to tip one red cap for checking your bags outside the entrance and another to the one who delivers them to the room, then do the same in reverse at check-out time. Any items one chooses to carry to the room have to be carried through the casino and much of the common areas. The room was probably very nice in earlier days but those days are long past. The water in the bath/shower ran continuously and the front desk was unable to find a fix. Be prepared to buy a bus pass or hire a cab as the hotel is far from the exciting part of the strip.

Room Tip: The higher the better.

Green Features: A faucet that runs 24/7 is not very environmentally friendly, especially in the middle of a desert.

Stayed here in 2008 for five nights, got vouchers to use in the casino - which included meals. Had the buffet - cheap and wide variety of choice, for drinks, desserts and main meals. Also had Krispy Creme Donut stand - which was good for being on the go. Plenty of gaming action if you like that. Our room had a view of the strip and it was very clean, well- presented and more than adequate for our needs. Able to Launder own clothes a short walk from the hotel in a caravan park. Bus stop close by, but I didn't think it was that far to walk from the main strip - especially with the vast difference in price. Would stay here again and also had bus pick-up for most tours- we went to the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley.

Money was a concern for me on my Las Vegas/Utah trip, so I decided to save a few bucks and stay at Circus Circus. I’m happy I did. The room was a decent size, about what I had pictured, and the TV and Wi-Fi were fine. The bed was comfortable and I got a great night’s sleep. On the Saturday night I was there I had to drive to Utah the next morning, so I was in bed by one a.m.--probably the only adult in the city in bed that early! I had horrible visions of loud people in the hallway or noisy rooms nearby, but that wasn’t the case at all. Things were nice and quiet.

The main problem was something that I’ll bet is a problem in many Vegas hotels—Circus Circus is huge, almost like a small city, and it’s busy and crowded. I had to stand in a roped line for half an hour, maybe longer, before I made it to the front desk for check-in. Then again, it was Saturday afternoon, maybe it’s better at other times. But to repeat, it’s probably something you’d have to endure at many Vegas hotels—this ain’t the Blueberry Motor Lodge in Midville, Kansas.

You’ll have to decide if the mile walk (or cab ride, bus ride, whatever) to the heart of the Strip is worth it. I didn’t mind it that much—I felt safe the whole way, and you don’t have to walk very far down the Strip before things get buzzing. And while I didn’t gamble at Circus Circus, I did take a walk through the casino, and there’s plenty to do for both gamblers and families if you feel like staying super-local. Are there better hotels in Vegas? I'm sure there are. But Circus Circus is fine for what it is. Overall, I felt safe, slept fine, and got my money’s worth, and as hotels go, I’ll take that every time.

Room Tip: If you're in the Skyrise Tower, ask for a view looking south on the Strip. I'm sure there a...

Price was right for what we needed somewhat crowded but holiday week what do you expect. Help was very friendly and answered many questions to get me around the hotel easy. Pool was great with the salt water and access was good for the kids. wifi was good not great very slo with weak signal but did help having it. Hotel meal purchases were somewhat high also limited selection. Seems like they are trying to start a breakfast menu that was rather good. For a total vacation deal airfare, hotel, car you really didn't have to go anywhere else to get entertained.Had casino, shows, midway games and the rides were a great package that wouild be hard to beat.

Room Tip: had room on end of hall really quiet and remote great for sleeping
