Stayed there on my last trip to Vegas. Staff was friendly but not much else good to say about the hotel. Our room was in the Manor, which was a hike from the casino floor. It was not very clean and we had some issues with the air conditioning. The décor and the casino can use some major renovations.
Decent gambling on the strip
If you need a cheap place to stay on the strip with decent gambling this is it. Slots paid out ok on my latest trip there. Buffet breakfast was ok but stay away from dinner buffet.
Circus Circus Casino/Hotel
This place is great for families, not really for a couple. The casino never seems to pay out when I am there. Food is fine, not expensive. The steakhouse is very good. Rooms are old but comfortable and parking is great. Nice location with other casinos within walking distance.
Return to Clowntown
Still a bargain for the strip. I miss the old poker room but they still have a bank of full pay progressive video poker for a quarter. If you want to play live poker, its walk a city block in any direction. There are still stampedes of children, but that's expected. I still respect the clown.
must love kids
Circus circus has some of the best deals on rooms on the strip these days. They even have some 99% and higher video poker games here. They recently closed the poker room, It wasn't getting a lot of action lately but was one of the oldest running rooms in town. The hotel is geared towards families, so there are swarms of children in the non-gaming areas. All things considered, it's still a good deal.
Hate casino love the steak house
I hate the casino here. I am sure that there is an entrance to hell buried somewhere on the property.
Half the time, I get lost coming in from the garage. I never seem to come in the same way twice in a row.
This place is crawling with kids. Not just kids, small kids. So if you are looking for an adult escape this isn't the place. The table games are in a creepy little pit. And they don't have a shuffler for pai gow poker. She deals out seven piles and then rolls the dice to see where the first pile goes. I have never seen anything like it anywhere else. And somehow, I actually have accrued a few bucks in comps here, so they must comp better than other strip properties.
The only reason to come here is for The Steakhouse. It is on the expensive side (we spent $170 on 2 of us the last time), but definitely worth the occasional splurge. The king crab appetizer is the best crab legs that I have ever had anywhere. And because of the price and the fact that they don't have a kids' menu, you rarely see children in here.
Straight Forward Review
Straight Forward Review based on my 2 week trip last month:
Circus Circus on North Vegas Strip
A Las Vegas "classic"
Great For Kids...Not So Much For Adults
Circus Circus used to be a pretty good place even for adults. I think that since they're the only place in Vegas that caters to families now, they have pretty much given up on anything else. The Pink Pony restaurant is gone and their poker room almost never has more than 1 table playing a limit game.
If you have kids the circus acts and the carnival midway upstairs are still the best thing in Las Vegas for the kids. And of course, they still have the amusement park which I haven't seen in years but I'm sure it's fun for the kids.
So if you don't have kids you might want to skip Circus Circus.
too noisy for me.
Stayed there for two nights. Didn't like the rooms...small and old. Also, found that all the kids running around were really annoying. I know it's for families, but the activities are too close to the gambling areas.
Circus Circus Hotel & Casino
Like their Reno casino Circus Circus Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas is for families with kids. It has live circus acts and an arcade area for the kids, We stayed once in rooms that were detached from the casino like a motel.
The Last of a Dying Group
With the Sahara now gone, there really aren't many of the original casinos from the 1960s and 1970s left on the strip. Unfortunately, Circus Circus really hasn't upgraded, well, anything, since then. When the biggest food attraction is a Krispy Kreme outlet, you know that there is trouble. The circus acts are free, and interesting for a few minutes, and may hold your childrens' attention. The Adventure Dome, and its games and rides, is also good for children. But the point is, if you don't have kids, there is really no reason to be here
Nice room but noisy
I wrote a review for Tripadvisor but here I am posting what I said before so more people could read it ... I'm gonna add a few more things I forgot to say... we chose again the CC hotel because the rooms at the West Tower were renovated, flat screen tv, the best kind of bed to have a good rest and of course the price!!!
If you're not a gambler you can just walk around the hotel visiting the Adventuredome or the circus area where you can win a lot of toys :) one think I like is that there's a McDonalds inside the hotel so it's easy to grab a coffee and an apple pie for breakfast hehe, there's a new huge souvenir store just outside the hotel and a CVS store just a block away from the hotel. When we booked there was a promo 40% off and 2 free buffets, so as soon as we arrived we went to the buffet for dinner, the buffet may not have as many dishes as other buffets but the quality was good.
Now the review I wrote for Tripadvisor...
This was our 3rd time at the CC (5 nights may-june) first time we stayed at the Skyrise tower and didn't like the location but the room was Ok, 2nd we stayed at the West tower was so nice so we decided to back to that kind of room for our 3rd visit... last time was in September and our room was almost in front of the elevators and they had a kind of noisy problem (it sounded like a pneumatic hammer) so we couldn't sleep and asked for a new room, we got a GREAT room because was almost at the end of the hall so no noise for us :)
This time we asked for a non-smoking, strip view (if possible), no door-connecting room and what we got? Smoking room, mountain view, door-connecting!!! anyway the mountain view was much better than the strip view so we were ok with that... the problem this time was the connecting room we could hear the noisy guests next to our room playing something like xbox or wii, one night at 2:30 am we had to call security because our "neighbors" arrived so drunk that they were yelling, talking so loud and making so much noise that it was really annoying and all because of the terrible connecting doors... I really hate them!!! they should be noiseproof doors or have a kind of noiseproof board between each door...
almost the last day I noticed some failure with the water (the flow pressure wasn't constant...) and surpriseeee!!! next day we received a letter saying that they will shut off the water in the building from 1 am to 5 am because of maintenance so we could ask for another room... we decided to stay at the same room (at 1 am we are sleeping) so no problem.
The only thing that makes me think twice about staying at the CC again is the problem with the connecting doors, if someone could tell me for sure that I won't get a connecting room I'll gladly stay at the CC again!!! btw some night I had to ask something at the front desk... I talked to "Richard" he was at the check-out, was so nice that I guess we talked for more than 20 mins :)
I've been in casinos in 5 states and this one was by far the worst. Extremely over crowded, this casino's ceilings are very low...this provides for a very cramped feel. Additionally, there are many kids all over this casino. It was not clean generally.
Place to take the kids. They have an indoor Circus and the games can cost you more than to gamble. One of cheap places to stay over. Comp ?
This place was very crowded. I've heard horror stories about the hotel. The gaming was okay. Pizza was worth eating twice. The roller coasters were great. Great for kids and adults.
Hard to get a drink and nothings was free for us. Bring the bank with you, but you'll be glad you did.
Back a few years ago, this was an ideal spot. Right on the Sstrip, very reasonable prices, EXCELLENT buffet (award winning).
Well, most of that has changed over time. The wife and I did a three day mini-weekend and boy were we ever disappointed.
First, checking in, look out for the people in the black blazers. They approach you as if they are trying to help you find your elevators, but then come and use high pressure try to get you to attend a time share seminar. Boy, one lady would NOT take no for an answer.
She followed us from the registration desk to our elevators, all the while not taking NO for an answer. Our complaints to the management fell on deaf ears.
Now for the rooms, wanted a non-smoking room, ended up with a smoking room with a non-working shower.
We had to move to a room with twin beds, in a smoking room. UGH.
The main cafe was the best part of our visit. The food was great, however the service was mediocre. The buffet is not what it once was.
It looks as if this place took a turn for the worse. The staff appears overworked, the food is at best average, and the rooms are getting old.
There were some rumors flying around that Circus Circus was on the chopping block, but that seems to be a rumor as of now. I would keep an eye on it, it just may be the next to come down.
When will they do something with this place?
I've been visiting Las Vegas for about 12 years and have yet to see even a little change to this place.
I visit CC almost everytime I'm in town (there was something that endeared the place to me) but it just doesn't do anything for me anymore.
