Neighborhood

Circus Circus Hotel and Casino is at the north end of the Strip. With all the advantages of a slightly quieter location and the nearby Wynn Golf Club, it's still easy to walk the Strip, and a short ride from the Fremont Street Experience, home of the 'original' Las Vegas sign.

Hints and tips
Traveling with children? Designed with families in mind, Circus Circus packs in many excellent distractions for the kids, including the Midway Carnival, and rides like the Happy Feet theatre experience at the onsite theme park.

If you're looking to get hitched, there's a wedding chapel onsite.

Horrible location and stay

Our stay at this hotel was HORRIBLE. First, when we arrived to Circus Circus we waited in a VERY long line to check in, then talked to an ignorant man at the desk that could not find our reservations. We had to get out of line and call orbitz because they did not email or send our reservation confirmation, we then had to return to the line to check in. After getting our room key, we quickly realized that we didn't get a tower room like we reserved, but, in the "manor" which is a run down three level building that is dirty, old and very noisy, didn't even feel like we were in a hotel in Las Vegas. We will never stay there again...also it is so far from anything enjoyable to see or do.

Nice place to stay, clean.

Our trip was very nice. The hotel was very clean. We didn't have to ask for anything. It was very kid orientated which is fine, but we didn't have kids with us. The buffet dinner was not the best. My husband had the shrimp and it was hard. Some of the items were cold instead of hot, and you could tell they were sitting there for awhile. Casino was nice, clean. This was our first trip to Vegas. It was and experience.

A lot of free entertainment. Also buy the all day bus pass, you can get on and off where ever you like for 24 hours. Still a lot of walking though. Spread your trip out. We had 2 days which wasn't enough to see everything.

Average Hotel

This hotel was an average hotel, but it is designed for "KIDS". The rooms in the tower was nice, clean and comfortable. The elevators got stuck quite often. The hotel buffet did have some good food and is one of the cheapest in Vegas. I probably would not stay at this hotel again unless I had kids, but the 24 dollars a night was great for a vacation. The hotel is also a ways away from most of the the main strip, its moslty at the north end.

Circus Circus

I wanted to go to Vegas on the cheap and I got a three night stay and round trip airfare for $250. It ended up costing a lot more because the dealers were somehow getting 4 or 5 blackjacks in a row, thus robbing me. There was a nice elderly lady dealer who was dragging up the corner of the card so the person in the last seat (me) could kind of see the dealer's card but they pulled her off the table after three hands and I never saw her again. If any law enforcement agency reads this, please scour their security footage to find out what might have happened to this nice old lady. I fear for her safety. Though the rooms were nice, you get an idea of the quality of the place when the Palazzo has a Chanel, Dior, Gucci, and Armani while Circus Circus has a dollar store, Krispy Kreme, and a jewelry store that sells Mardi Gras beads. I think Circus Circus has the highest per capita of slightly overweight people riding electric carts in the world. Avoid the buffet unless you are trying to start or build a large collection of stomach parasites. I would recommend this hotel to my friend. But only if I found out he was having an affair with my wife and I wanted something tragic to befall him.

Good Hotel for the Price That I Paid

I received very great deal on orbitz for this hotel. Front desk staff was not friendly. I guess this is true for most of Vegas hotels. Lobby and hallways were very hot and humid. It was unpleasant entry. At my surprise they kept used towels. Thanks that we were carrying our own towels. Rooms were big. TV was old and pictures were all blurred. We stayed one for one night and later moved to other hotel. This hotel is located in downtown and all major action is on Las Vegas Strip. I will strongly recommend to book hotel on Vegas Strip by spending more money. You will enjoy nightlife.
