Circus Circus Hotel & Casino
- What's Included
Hotel is kind of dated but my room was pretty good. I was on the 14th floor in Sky Tower and o/t the Ice Machine not working, no real complaints. I had a friend staying too. His experience was nowhere near as good as mine. He had to change his room 3 times due to issues and was finally moved to the 3rd floor where he had ant problems (getting into his sleep machine). My advice - stay on a middle floor. Like all the other hotels in Las Vegas these days, don't expect to pay the rate quoted to you. They all add daily resort fees ($25 per day or more) on top of the daily rate (whether you use any facilities or not). Also every casino (in every hotel I visited) appears to allow smoking, so keep that in mind if smoke is an issue for you.
3-night stay in November 2016. We were in the Casino Tower with a king bed. Check-in was very quick, and the desk clerk was very welcoming and informative. The resort fee was something like $28 a night (which I don't really understand, but we live in the age of fees). Walking through the casino to get to the elevator, there was a weird odor in the air. The casino wasn't smokey or anything, and I the odor wasn't like smoke. It was kind of a mix of scented candles and paint. Our room was pretty big (which I always like) and very clean. Everything in the room was in good shape, and the bed and chairs were all comfortable. Bathroom was on the small side, but had everything we needed. On the first night, someone made off with the Do Not Disturb sign on our door (which we discovered when Housekeeping was knocking at 9AM). We asked for another one, but never got it. Hotels need to come up with a different to handle DND.One of the other people we were staying with was having problems getting checked into his room because his travel mate wasn't arriving until later that day, and somehow both names weren't on the reservation that the hotel had; even though both names were on the Expedia email confirmation. The desk clerk we talked to was very kind, but basically couldn't do anything (i.e. let our friend into his room) unless Expedia cleared things up. During that time, we found out that his friend's flight was delayed indefinitely, so we asked about getting a rollaway bed in our room for him (as he couldn't get into his room). The clerk said he would have a complimentary bed sent up, but that never happened. In the end, it didn't matter since the other person finally arrived.As far as other hotel amenities -- we didn't use the pool or the gym. Did do a walk-by of the pool, and it was small, but adequate. There are actually two pools, although one was closed for the season. We enjoyed the on-site Starbucks and Krispy Kreme, as well as the 24-hr Subway and pizza place in the adjacent strip mall. Took a stroll through the AdventureDome too, and I couldn't believe how massive it was. Lots to do in there (though mostly for kids).The casino itself was decent. Had something for everyone, and looked pretty clean. I wouldn't hesitate to go back, and I would recommend it to others. Yes, it's a little further up the strip, but certainly not an inconvenience. Rooms were nice. And since we weren't planning to be in the hotel all day/every day anyway, there was no point in staying at hotel with high-end price tags on it. Plus, being a James Bond fan, I was excited to stay here, since some scenes from "Diamonds Are Forever" were shot there. :-)
After a long time travelling from Australia, we were pleased to get to our hotel room. First 4 nights where in the West Tower where the room was clean and comfortable. We cancelled a Grand Canyon hotel and rebooked for another 2 nights here but in the casino tower. The room was bigger, bathroom was smaller, there were peanuts on the floor and the remote for the tv didn't work. One call to the front desk and they promptly sent up housekeeping to try and fix it, when they couldn't - they sent the maintenance man who could. Great, fast service.In Australia smoking laws are very strict so it was a hit to the lungs smelling nothing but smoke everywhere we went. Even in some of the restaurants you could smell it. I wasn't impressed with that part as we have our 6 year old daughter with us. The buffet is ok, but as my title says - you get what you pay for. The Adventuredome was cool and I could see a lot of kids having a great time in there. Ride bands are about $30 but you'll get a coupon for a discount at check in. The Midway is a massive games arcade and everything costs. Only $1 - $2 a go, but you can quickly burn through some money there. Especially when you have an excited 6yr old who wants to do everything ...The Deuce stop is right outside so accessing the strip and Fremont street was really easy. We are not fussy travellers and are happy with places that are cheap, clean and convenient. Overall, this hotel is cheap, the rooms were tidy and the location is fine. Staff were professional and friendly but if we ever decided to not come back it would be because of the smoke.
Road construction makes it a bit difficult to navigate towards the hotel lobby entrance and the road signs are not highlighted/lit up at night. Personnel were great during check-in, had a free upgrade offered so my room was better than expected! Arriving after a full day's drive, it was around 7PM local time, I parked, unpacked, and went to bed. Parking for disability plated vehicles is limited to about 20 spaces, so those are booked; high clearance vehicles can enter the garage (which will clear up to bus height), the hotel open-air lot or the RV Manor across the hotel (their property lot as well). Additional covered garage spaces are available but do not offer the high clearance so stick with the open-air lots if you arrive during the busy season. The room was spacious, had a very comfortable king bed, clothes drawers, desk, small couch chair (for one person), big area in bathroom, no closet, 32" TV, no microwave, no refrigerator. Wi-Fi is free, elevators are numbered for certain sections (so maybe your floor is not on the elevator you get into so find the elevator bank that takes you up). The hotel offers a dinner and brunch buffet but I was rather tired from my drive and did not use their services. My room had a view of some sort of dome, not the Vegas strip, but I was just in for the rest time not the sightseeing on this trip.
Too many time share sales people. Everywhere smelled of smoke. The rides were closed and shut down and no one bothered to say a word. That was the selling point. Lots of the shops had limited hours. Which was another down side. Nit sure I would do this again.
