The location of the hotel is very desirable. The hotel is run down and not as clean as I would like. See full review

especially wth grandkids

The tower rooms are roomy and nicely refurbished. Best thing about CC however, is it,s features for kids. Our grandchildren had a ball. The adult gaming is fun too and where else can you play blackjack while watching contortionist or trapeeze act?

Value based lodging

Circus Circus hotel was basic and comfortable. No real 'frills' but good value for our stay. The room was not fully made...we needed to call housekeeping for the missing standard ammeneties but overall we had not complaints. Great for kids and yet not too cheesy for adults wanting some distraction.

Connected to Silver Legacy & El Dorado. No need to be out and about on the Strip if you're not up for dealing with the heat. Lots of food options for everybody in the main area. Reasonably priced food options.

Good for the money

I was pleased with how quiet the room was during sleeping hours, couldn't hear anyone above us or next door. We got a late checkout with no problem. Good deal for the money if you are not looking for a 'fancy casino'. The restaurants and bars downstairs are really not comparable to other nicer casino/hotels in the area, but you are paying a cheaper price. Lots of kids in certain areas of the hotel. Overall a good choice if you are looking for a bit of a bargain.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

A short drive down the strip is the Peppermill Casino that offers a very nice atmosphere in the casino/bars, and a good 24 hr restaurant, with no kids.

Fun and relaxing

We saw some free shows visited with my mom and enjoyed ourselves. The one thing that would have made our stay more enjoyable would have been to planned more time to stay. The price to stay with [...] was great!!
