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.

Roaches in my room!!!!

Sales pitch at check in to upgrade our room. We paid extra for the "nice" room and we were welcomed with two grotesque bags of trash outside our room complete with used feminine products. Those bags stayed there for about 8 hours. We checked out early due to roaches (Travelling companion had roaches too). Water pressure was awful, walls were thin and service was horrid. I am not a complainer and Im telling you, this was horrific!!!!!

Pleasantly Suprised

We were very pleasantly suprised with the service and accomodations. The rooms in the Sky tower are a bit broken in and could use some renovation, but they were clean and larger than expected. The staff was friendly, courteous, and eagar to help. Loved the circus acts and the midway. All you can eat all day buffet for $20 per person was the best deal. 5 of us ate all day for $100. The only thing we really didn't like were the Vendors on the Promonade being very aggressive in hawking their wares. It almost made you want to not walk through the Promonade. Other than that it was a perfect family weekend vacation.

Don't select Manor Room!!!

Are trip started off rocky when we realized the Manor Room are just glorified motel rooms that are in the back of the hotel. The manor room is cheap and most people do say that all you need a bed for your trip to vegas. I like to sleep a little and I don't mind paying for that luxury. The manor rooms are located in the back of the hotel and its a pain to get there. The beds were hard and except for key card access there is no other security measures which make it even scarier. When we first walked into our room the bathroom wasn't cleaned and it looked like someone destroyed it. We asked for a room change and thank god the new room was okay. We were pretty bummed and we went to dinner, after dinner we decided that we wanted to upgrade to get a room we can be happy with and start over. So we talked to a manager at the reception and told her our situation and she was very nice and she understood us and she actually gave us a free upgrade which she did not have to but it was nice. The room was in the west tower (called tower room) and it was awesome, after that the trip was great, if you want to stay at circus circus and hotel room is important don't pick the manor room however cheap it is!!!

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Monorail is better than strip bus because in the evenings there are a lot of people on the strip and the bus gets pretty crowded. The monorail is nice, the station is a just a couple of blocks from circus circus (if you are staying there) and goes to all major hotels on the strip.

Great price for staying on the strip

the hotel was good, cheap for one on the strip it was in a good location cos u could get to anywhere on the strip from there. only downside might be is it being cheap its not as fancy as it you want it to be like the mgm or ny ny, but if you want cheap and on the strip i'd suggest staying there. its got the adventure dome so if you don't want to gamble but have fun i'd suggest going there its amazing that its all indoors.

Vegas Anniversary

The hotel offered plenty to do and the staff was friendly, but the rooms were not as nice as we had anticipated. The bathtub faucet was difficult to turn off and dripped. The wall in the bathroom needed repaired and the wallpaper needed replaced. An iron and ironing board not in use had to be located in the hotel. We were badgered by kiosk vendors in the shopping area. We had to pass them going to and from our room.

The Brazilian food at Pampa in the Miracle Mile Mall is excellent. A variety of skewer roasted meats are individually carved and served at each table. The atmosphere is great and the service outstanding.
