Not a first-pick of places to stay at, especially since I've been spoiled by Aria. However, it is a great location to visit if you're in the mood for something else other than gambling and drinking - carnival games to be exact. It's a great place to take children and/or spend half an hour killing only $20 - most games are about $1/play. There are also short shows scattered throughout the day; I was able to enjoy the quick acrobatic and trapeze shows.

I have stayed at Circus Circus several times over the years. It is a decent hotel with the basic amenities, in a slightly more kid friendly environment than the other hotels. The pool is not the scene that it can be at times with the other hotels though.
I would suggest using priceline.com or hotels.com etc to get a hotel, I have done that and ended up here for all but one of my Circus Circus stays. It is an older hotel with a different ambience than many of the other casinos.
There is a shuttle that will take you from one end of the strip to the other cheaply that leaves from here multiple times a day as well as cabs cruising up and down the strip. If you like to get in a workout, its a nice walk to work out those sore muscles after a car or plane ride to some of the other hotels.
The pool is bare bones basic. The casino is reasonable but nothing that I play too much at. The midway shows are fun for all and no other hotel has the free circus/midway acts that they do here. They also have the kid allowed gaming area which is a fun place even for adults to enjoy.
Definitely an acceptable place to stay when you get a deal on a room of $50 or less a night (usually on the weekends too).Recommended for:

I like Circus Circus, probably because I remember coming here as a kid, but it needs an upgrade! Next time we're in Vegas, we'll have to come here because of the kid, so please upgrade!Recommended for:

The Circus Circus is a bit older, not renovated, and is in an odd location given that so many casinos around it have been torn down. However, it is still very unique and worth visiting if you want to see some of the older Vegas that still remains. The AdventureDome theme park is good for kids.

I have stayed at this hotel back in the days when I was a poor college kid. The price is very competitive but the hotel was really quite dated. The room was clean but the bedding and linen were quite old. Almost felt like it was some cheap motel room. The location is excellent though. Can't complain being in the middle of the strip. For people traveling on a tight budget this could be a good choice.Recommended for:

I used to stay here with my family all the time when I was little and loved it. These days, this place needs a major makeover! I had some good memories here, but now it looks a bit rundown. I'm sure kids still enjoy it though. The hotel is more family friendly than some others on the Strip and they have the Adventuredome with games and rides.Recommended for:

Circus Circus brings back fond memories of my childhood playing at the Midway and watching the free circus acts under the Big Top!
We paid $35 per night including resort fee (and a free coupon book with 2 free midways games and a free Adventuredome ride!) and got upgraded for free to the West Tower (recently renovated, located right next to the check in desk and valet parking) and the rooms are great!
Tastefully decorated in a contemporary fashion, flat screen TV, granite countertops in the bathroom, excellent water pressure in the shower, and comfy beds!
With the exception of the lobby area, the rest of the hotel is very smoky and they dont scent the air like they do at TI, Mirage, Venetian, and some of the other newer and fancier hotels.
The Midway was totally dead on a weeknight!
The Adventuredome was great! DiskO was thrilling and the Canyon Blaster Rollercoaster was fun and had two loops and two corkscrews! This was the first rollercoaster I went on as a child and its much smoother than the Manhattan Express Rollercoaster at the NY Hotel!
Free valet was PAINFULLY slow, especially when waiting to drop off our car everytime we came back to the hotel! We waited a good five minutes in the car until I got out and went up to valet guy and asked him to help us and he said he thought we wanted to relax in the car a bit before getting out! What an idiot!
The Circus Kids store on the same Promenade level as the Adventuredome was great!
The owner was totally friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and patient!
EXCELLENT selection of Hello Kitty items!
Random tip: If you have T-mobile, 4G cell reception is hit and miss in this store.Recommended for:

Located on The Las Vegas Strip, this was one of the first family friendly resorts. It has n amusement park inside! But most importantly it was used in the James Bond Film Diamonds Are Forever. The interior has changed quite a bit, however if you look carefully you can see where the film was shot. The property itself is a bit rundown, but the room prices reflect that, so you you will get a great deal. It wouldn’t be my first pick but check it out for the James Bond connection! Live it up you are in Las Vegas for cryin’ out loud!Recommended for:

I am going to teach you a quick lesson about staying in a casino town.Always remember to stay on the lower floors the rooms cost less. Any thing above the 7 or 8 floor the more the room is going to cost . I like this place because it brings out the kid in you. And make sure you check out the casino buffets for meals and if you drink hit the slot machine floors because drinks are free. On the slot floors you can play the penny slots or any machine for some change and your drinks are free just please tip your waitress.The better the tip the better the drink and they keep coming until you say no more.Have fun and enjoy.

Calling this place a circus is fairly accurate, calling it Chaos Chaos would be even more so. It is extremely crowded, and generally smoky, smelly and dirty as well. We stayed here two nights when we were seeking a super-cheap Vegas trip, and regretted the decision instantly. While there are some remodeled rooms in the main hotel building, we were placed in a building next door and the rooms were not nice at all. They were old and dated, and the type of room you will find stains in if you allow yourself to look. The only good thing about the entire place is the free circus performances above the casino floor, but it's so miserable to even enter the building that I would just avoid it altogether.

I suppose you get what you pay for, but our stay at Circus Circus was pretty awful. We found a large hairball in the bathtub, the pool closed too early to use, Wi-Fi hardly worked, and to top it off a picture fell off the wall and hit my friend in the face while we were sleeping. The worst part of it was the hotel didn't seem to care about our poor service. We complained and told them about the picture falling off the wall and they told us they'd "investigate" it and they never got back with us.

Super old school. Expect really, really dated room/bedding/linen/etc. But, cheap. And reminds me of the golden days of Vegas before I turned 21 where the only fun things to do were to play at the Midway.

Hmm ... how is it that they haven't torn this place down and built something spectacular in its spot? I have to say this is probably the dirtiest, grossest place on the strip and remains so even though they have that mid-way gaming area. The food here is definitely sub-par, the rooms smell and the curtains are STAINED??
The casino itself has terrible ventilation so all you smell is smoke and it gets into your clothes unlike when you walk through a nicer hotel with better ventilation. They do have cheap tables and cheap eats but goodness I would pay more for better company. I am waiting for the re-vamp and built of something fantastic here ... hopefully soon ...
