“Affordable family trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Great place for a family to stay. We had a blast at the adventure dome and spent a day at the pool. A good value for a family. The buffet was horrible and over priced. I would stay here again with my family but find somewhere else to eat.

Room Tip: The room had some dust in areas like it was only ever spot clenaed but the beds were clean and comfo...

Dear Kim943,

Although we regret that your dining experience at Circus Buffet was less than optimal, we're pleased you appreciated the many entertainment options we offer for the entire family. We hope you'll consider visiting us again the next time you're in town.

Sincerely,

For many people the reasons that you chose to take a vacation in Las Vegas should be the reasons that you chose not to stay at Circus Circus.

If you have been in any other Las Vegas hotels and then enter Circus Circus, you realise you are suddenly down market. No surprise its kept a little out of the way at the very end of the strip !

That said, if you have smaller children and are visiting Las Vegas then this is probably the better or only option, as many other hotels are more targeted to adults and lack many facilities for children at times. Circus Circus has a McDonalds and that should tell you all you need to know.

Don't run away with ideas that you will be spending all day, everyday for a week on a range of theme park rides either. There are indeed rides in the hotel indoors, in its own theme park but:

It's small.
It's busy.
They are not free/cheap, although a day pass is available.
They seem to breakdown often.

We bought a ticket for the main 2 coasters. Got to the front of the queue for one and it broke down. Queued for the other, got to the front of that queue and it too broke down when we were next to get on. Went to try to get a ticket refund and were flatly refused as they were running again by that time. Like by that stage I wanted to get on either with my kids and end up trapped at the top or worse !

I will definitely be back in Las Vegas. I doubt that I will ever be back in Circus Circus.

The rooms in the casino tower are nice except mine had a little mold in the bathroom. The room has Keurig coffee maker now and are nicely renovated. The room has a safe and nice flat screen television. The beds were comfortable. The kids love the Adventure Dome. Well worth the price of a all day wrist band.

Room Tip: Higher the better so you can see Las Vegas strip

Nice hotel,we stayed there for few days during week so the price was really good. Clean and spacious room. Good location, close enough to other attractions. Casino didn't look that great but still you can enjoy it. I would definitely go back.

It was pretty fun!!!!
Our location was very convenient- in the middle of everything
Casino, indoor amusement park, restaurants, shops= great!!
however our hotel room wasn't the greatest- no microwave, no fridge, couldn't find the vending machines, beds weren't so comfy!!!
It was aright!

the food and bars were excellent. great atmosphere. If you go to have a good time with friends and family. there was plenty for the adults to do and the kids stayed occupied all the time. The staff was friendly and if you like to be entertained you really need to go to the karaoke bar. If you like thril rides you have to try the roller coasters, they're great.

Room Tip: go to high floors to get a view

Well what did I expect? It was a bit of a circus, really. The casino is looking a bit tired these days, especially from the outside (especially checking in at the rear of the building), but, to be fair, this is reflected in the price. The casino area stinks of smoke, whereas other casinos don't, so I imagine their ventilation system is a little out of date. Service ranged from ambivalent to tolerable but was never out and out rude. The room was absolutely fine and had a good view.

If you stay prepare for the children. When we stayed there was some sort of youth basketball tournament going on so the place was awash with (not-so-small) children.
