Under the big top, more family fun awaits
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.

Circus Circus

The walls were very thin and we could hear eveything on either side and next to us. The hotel itself was just ok. But the food at the buffet and restaurants was less then satisfactory. The atmosphere in the casino was pretty ho-hum. None of the employees seemed like they wanted to be there and it was very slow going. But there was plenty to do in the casino and it's just a short bus trip to the main part of the strip. Overall it was ok. But I wasn't impressed.

Get a bus pass on the Deuce bus system. It's inexpensive and very much worth the couple extra bucks.

The clean towels were dirty.

Circus Circus is great for kids, although our room had a mini fridge I expected a coffee maker which we didn't have. The room's were big enough but the bathroom needed a thorough cleaning and the towels they delivered one day looked like someone washed their car tirees with them. The issue with the room location was it wasn't in the main hotel or connected to the hotel but in a separate building in the block next door along with four unattached buildings which required walking outdoors several hundred feet to get to the walk way to the hotel. I probably wouldn't stay there again unless I was sure I got a room in the tower rather than the barracks. It would be a good place if you had kids because of the circus and midway activities though and the McDonalds located inside the casino was better food than the casino's buffet.

family friendly and clean

The Circus Circus was very comfortable and clean. The housekeeping was exceptional and available when needed. The environment was family oriented and was everything I was looking for. I was able to shop, eat ,and dance without leaving Circus Circus. This is the place for kids in Vegas with the whole family.

Great value!

Cicus Circus was a great value for Las Vegas. Although it is beginning to look a little worn, the room was comfortable and reasonably clean considering the age.Got booked in. It had a few amenities such as .. A safe in the room , a bathtub instead of just a shower,better security, and ample ,convenient parking. That area of the north strip is in the process of renovation so it seems to be a little off the strip. but, was not as inconvenient as we thought it would be.

Get ready for a long walk to the room

My stay at Circus Circus was a mixed bag to say the least. If you check in on a Friday, you are best off waiting until later in the evening. There is a HUGE line with ropes guiding you through like livestock. They put you in one of the Manor rooms in the back of the building. This means walking out the back of the hotel, across a street and down a long parking lot. I was in building E which meant that I had another 100 yards to go at least from the street. If you have a lot of bags, prepare for a workout! This also means any time you want to catch a cab or shuttle you are going to need to allow yourself time to walk all the way back to the main part of the hotel/casino. The rooms were clean, but I would definitely pay a little more to stay somewhere else.

Affordabel Weekend In Vegas

Circus Circus was very relaxing and hassel free. We were able to park in the Skyrise garage and walk into the casino and convient to our room. The room was comfortable and clean. The hotel check-in clerk was very friendly an helpful and our request for a kingsize bed was granted. The price we paid for the room was great and we saved money staying there. Our next trip to Vegas we will be staying there again. Overall our stay at Circus Circus was good and I will recommend to anyone to stay there. Good price and clean and comfortable rooms
