Opened in 1968, Circus Circus Hotel Las Vegas is one of the oldest hotels on the Strip, and though its classic neon lights are typical of the Vegas cityscape, the hotel itself is modern. Operated by MGM Resorts International, the complex is home to shopping alleys filled with designer fashions, hair and beauty salons, along with its signature trapeze and acrobatic shows. Check in for the evening at the 100,000-square-foot casino, or spin, roll and coast away the days at the onsite theme park, Adventuredome.

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.

security risk ,

i been going to las vegas for 15 yr ,but is the first time , they book me on the manor a 5 building complex ,which the doors of the d complex was broken so anyone could go in guess or no , the air condicioner was extremly noisy .poor lighting in the room . and the traffic light that you had to use to get to the hotel every morning was an aveture in survival ,and then if you went by the connection bulding it took you around the hotel that really was better to risk it on the stree than to go throught there.i ask for late ck in and ck out ,went i ask for the later one they try to charge me another night .just for getting out at 1.00 instead of 11.00 am ,which for someone witha 11.30 pm flight did`nt make sense .

5 Star Disappointment

Wanting to experience the opposite side of the strip and a new hotel/casino, my husband and I chose Circus Circus. We checked in at 8 p.m. and checked out at 7 a.m. the following morning. Aside from the room having stained carpet and furniture, not to mention all the hair in the bathroom, the location was somewhat of a safety issue. We were given a room in back of the casino, next to the RV Park. To access the 4 unajoined buildings, you have to walk through a parking lot. There are people loitering all over the parking lot all hours of the day and night. You could not access anything in regards to entertainment-the casino, circus, restaurants-without walking through the parking lot. The hotel and casino are fairly isolated from other establishments on the strip. Also, mold was growing up the sink drain and around the drain stopper in the bathroom sink. As we walked around the casino and the store area, vendors literally ran up to us, haggling us to try their product. We compared it to vendors on cruise ship shops. When I phoned the front desk to complain about the room and request a refund, they refused. I then phoned Orbitz who got a refund for us. We went back to a hotel on the other side of the strip where after almost 10 years of staying there have never experienced safety or hygiene issues. I would NEVER take a child to Circus as it is not safe and it is dirty. We did not want to sit on the furniture so why would we let a child?

Not impressed

The rooms was average size. I expected more and really wasn't impressed, actually disappointed. There were only two lamps in the room with inadequate lighting. My reservation thru orbitz had a king size non smoking room and I recieved two full size beds in a smoking room. While several attempts to switch rooms I got tired of being on hold and the long line to get to a front desk agent. While in line, I overheard other Orbitz customers having problems with their reservations. I have traveled for business quite a bit and have never been so disappointed. The only thing I enjoyed on this trip was the Prime Rib. This was the first time using Orbitz for the hotel portion and it will be the last.
