When we first pulled into the hotel parking lot, we were met by Charles, a security person on a bike. Charles gave us directions to the best place to park, biked us over there and even helped me back the camper in. Right away I was impressed with the great attention that we received.
The hotel was definitely clean, as were the rooms. The kids had a great time and everyone walked away with great little toys that they won in the arcade. Very happy with the service and the stay. Price was great - booked on their website. Was the least expensive that I found.

Service here was a lot better that the counterpart in Vegas. When asked for a fridge one was brought on a dolly and worked fine on the floor. Had plenty for the kids to do, and the adults. Seemed a little more friendly to families and other things were within walking distance. Would suggest to anyone considering going to a casino or family getaway.

So we take a trip every year to Circus Circus for our anniversary. We stay there because of the midway that our 9 year old loves to go play at. This year we realized that the food has started to really go down hill. The breakfast buffet is only open during select days which was a real bummer especially during the summer. And the food at the American Grill has gotten really bland. We tried it for lunch and for breakfast and did not have a very good experience during either time. But with that being said the Sushi restaurant is still amazing. But I believe that next time we go we will be staying at the Silver Legacy instead.

This is a great place to stay when traveling with children. The midway is lots of fun for the whole family and it's easy to win most games. The rooms are pleasant and clean, just not very updated. The kids loved the tram to the the elevators for the rooms. The valet parking is free and the rooms are very reasonably priced. It's not what I would consider a destination vacation spot, but a great place to stop while traveling.

The rooms were decent, although not for the price. I booked a block of rooms for a certain price. When the bill came (day before we were to check in) it was a good $900.00 more because of resort fees, resort taxes, local taxes, room taxes etc. Just be careful when booking here as the price includes NOTHING except for a room.

Circus Circus used to be primarily a destination for families and while it still is a great place for families, they've really improved everything, so it's not one of those kid friendly places where others wouldn't feel comfortable. Everything about the resort has really improved, plus they are connected up directly to El Dorado and Silver Legacy, so you don't ever have to touch the street below! It's great! Had a lot of fun there! Really diverse offerings!
