Overall I enjoyed staying at Circus Circus. The place was clean and the staff was friendly. They had problems with the elevators our first two days there which was a Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday morning with 6 elevators, it took us 15 minutes to
get an elevator to go downstairs. We found that we had better luck getting one that was going up and then ride it back down. We had lunch at the Americana Cafe which was good. But was very dissapointed in the brunch buffet. Did not feel that they had a very good selection of food, especially meat, and the quality of the food just wasn't up to the par that I was expecting. Also, while I know that there is little that the hotel can do about it, I was bothered by the amount of people outside the hotel that asked us for money.
The rooms were nice, but the TV's were very small. (19"). If you don't want to be around tons of kids, then it would be best to stay elsewhere. The elevators to the tower (6) were not all operational and there were lengthy waits at the floor and
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
The Circus Circus Steakhouse is very good and every person in our party of 9 enjoyed their dinners.
Where to start? 2 of 4 pillow cases stained. Painted nail clippings on the carpet in plain sight. Non-smoking room smelled of smoke. Matresses were saggy, old, & disgusting. I had to lysol everything before I would walk back into my house.
We were there for a bowling tournament. We did some site seeing and gambled a little bit. Although the rooms were cheaper, Circus Circus didn't have as much to offer on the perks side as some of the other casions located near them. We teaded to
gamble at other hotels.
We heard the buffet was bad and didn't even attempt to go there. Instead we ate once at the Americana Cafe (name ?) which was wonderful and the cost was great. We did try the ribs at Smokin Geekos and would not recommend this to ANYONE. They were tough and the service was horrible. The Happy Hour in all the Circus Circus bars was great!!!
I also would have thought this hotel had a pool as it caters to families.
