Don't get a Manor room.
After 20 beers at slot-o-fun good luck finding your room. Dirt bags and losers everywhere. Manor rooms are no nicer than trailer parks. This place is the worst. Stay at the Strat or downtown, but not here.

Bad Bad Bad
We stayed there in nov for our sons wedding , I came back to our room to change for the evening and in the bathroom were ''WET PAINT '' signs all over the bahtroom door they decided to paint our room , that means people were in our room I could see housekeeping but it was not acceptable to have painters in while we were out , that room was booked for 3 days !! so it ruined our stay there. and they held no one accountable , sure they gave us some money for one night, our personal things were in plain view when you entered the room ( I guess they have blind painters )and our clothes were hanging in the closet but I guess they chose not to acknowedge our belongings I will never stay there again , and all they gave me was the run around I kept asking for the number to corperate and no one has it can you imagine they don't know who they work for not even the manager .LOL Bad Bad Bad

HOTELS IN LAS VEGAS
JUST BACK FROM CIRCUS CIRCUS. ENDED UP PLAYING AT THE SLOTS-OF-FUN. MOST ALL OF THE CASINOS HAVE GONE TO THE "PAPER" SLOTS VICE THE "COIN" SLOTS. THE PAPER SLOTS ARE BORING, BORING AND MORE BORING. WE LIKE TO PLAY VIDEO POKER "WITH"
THE NOISE OF THE COINS IN THE HOPPER WHEN YOU WIN. WE LIKE GETTING DIRTY HANDS HANDLING THE COINS. TOO BAD THE CASINO'S JUST WANT THE $$$$$$$$. GOT TO GET RID OF THE TECHS THAT WORKED ON THE SLOTS. CASHIERS DON'T HAVE TO COUNT COINS ANYMORE...... GLAD THE THERE ARE SOME OF THE SMALLER CASINO'S THAT STILL HAVE THE COIN SLOTS.
I WILL CALL SLOTS OF FUN BEFORE I GO NEXT TIME TO SEE IF THEY CHANGED TO THE PAPER.
BEEN GOING TO LAS VEGAS FOR 50 YEARS; AS A KID WITH MY PARENTS AND NOW WITH MY CHILDREN. BRING BACK THE COIN SLOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The smoke in the casino "did me in" -- please someone tell them to get a better smoke eater in their buildings!!!!!!! The buffet breakfast was nice but the buffet dinner was tasteless! Our teenage daughter loves the Midway!
This was the 2nd time we've stayed at Circus Circus - we had NO WAIT at check-in -- we were wisked over to the VIP area - the room in the West Tower was fine.....everyone was very nice.

Not a great place to stay or gamble unless you like screaming brats running around & very bland food. Dont look for any comps either. I lost $1,500 in 4 hours my first night there & asked if maybe I could get a free buffet but was told more or less to dial 1-800-EAT-SH#T!
I bought my own buffet & found out it was sh#t anyway. Check in was a pain on a sunday nite. The rooms are pretty nice but like everywhere else kids are all over switching (do not disturb) signs to the flip side of (please clean)...That didnt bother me & I thought it was funny but Im sure other guests didnt think so. I was going to stay 4 nites but left after 2 to go to the Stardust insted. It wasnt really to bad overall & a great north strip location but I dont think I would stay there again unless it was $28 a nite or less

We booked our room through a travel agent and ended up paying a bit more than booking directly. However, upon check-in, the rooms in the tower we requested were sold out, so we were upgraded to a suite, which was very nice. We would have had an excellent view if not for concrete pillars blocking the majority of the window, which only opened two inches. All-in-all we were very satisfied with our room. Huge bathroom and changing area with well appointed decor. Being a young couple without children, we felt a little out of place without youngsters in tow. I think many parents drop their children off at the front door and come back at night to pick them up. This is a great place for families to stay, as there are many things for the children to do, and hundreds of other children for your children to play with. The food at the Pink Pony was above our expectations. We loved the Krispy Kreme doughnuts that we bought every morning downstairs. The hotel staff was friendly. We would be staying at Circus Circus again on our upcoming visit, but we were comped a few nights at Rio and then are heading downtown.

We visited In February 2004 and found the place worth the money. If you don't like children, don't come here. The people were all very friendly, and the rooms in the West Tower were nice. My only complaint was the bed springs hurt my back. Someone wrote in and said that Mondays were a good time to gamble in the casino. We were only in the casino 1 1/2 hours when my husband hit a jackpot. Very good place to gamble on the strip! When we checked in there were only 4 people ahead of us, which we were lucky because a couple of days later the lines were very long. Good day to check in ----Monday!

I visit Vegas twice a year with my husband & kids. This review is mostly for people that travel with children of any age. Circus Circus Hotel is located at the not so good end of the strip, what I mean by this is that it is kind of trashy, to look at it you would not feel safe walking down the strip at night and I don't recommend you do so. In my opinion if you want a desent hotel near the good part of the strip start at Treasure Island and end at the Luxor. Circus Circus is a very affordable hotel with lots to do with the kids but I don't suggest staying there but definitely do visit the Adventure Dome and the shopps, you may also want to take them to Wet & Wild which is across the street from Circus Circus and next to the Sahara Hotel, your kids will love it, stay away from the restaurants though and the public bathrooms are really dirty so bad that you might want to wait and go somewhere else. Personally my kids like to stay at the MGM Grand, Luxor and Excalibur Hotels with visits to the New York New York hotel also.

I was there (JULY 14 02) with my teen son age 15 and he had his friend along.They liked the midway ,lots to do for them. But I will never bring any kids there again, Bringing kids there is alot of cash. Vegas is more for adults. I thought this was the worst hotel. Lines to check in so long you wait forever.And the walking to find the room! I thought the buffet was sicking. I also had a view of a dirty roof top with old beer bottles,As much as I love vegas ......Never again will stay at the nightmare of Neveda. I will gladly spend a few more bucks on a better room.

I haven't had the pleasure of staying in the rooms at CC, however, I did gamble there, albeit briefly. I go to Vegas to get away from my children, but here at CC, you have to put up with everyone elses. There were always strollers everywhwere, screaming whining kids underfoot and their parents seemed totally oblivious to the fact that their little precious darlings were little monsters.
I would never dream of bringing my kids ( 8, 13 & 15 ) to LV. It is an adult town with adult activities. I cannot tell you how many parents I saw lugging their kids around at 2AM, and making them wait outside while they gambled. It was pretty sad.

Stayed July 8th - 12th in Skyrise Tower rm 25xxx. Check in was a nightmare with an approx 1 hr wait in line. The bell staff was friendly and promptly
delivered our bags when we called down for them. The room was clean,
comfortable and well worth the price. Our room had 2 queen sized beds, a clock,
writing table & chair, 3 drawer armoire and the usual 'tween beds nightstand.
There were 3 lamps, 2 table type & 1 stand type. All had good bulbs. The room
had an individual air conditioner/heater unit instead of central heat/air.
The TV was inside the armoire, well adjusted [color was good], reception OK on
the channels [ABC, CBS, CNN, ESPN, FOX, PBS, NBC, WB, WGN, TBS, TELEMUNDO
(SPANISH)& USA]. We didn't try the pay movies. The TV remote worked! There
was an in room safe present [$0.50/per use]. The closet nook had plenty of
hangers. The bathroom had the usual one sink, a tub/shower combo & toilet.
3 sets of towels etc and one bath mat/rug were present. The towels were of
average quality. The hand held hair dryer worked. There were the usual shampoo
, soap, ice bucket and plastic cups. The bathroom was clean and smelled OK.
One problem noted was that the bathroom florescent light was dim & "blinky",
this was handled by maint. in a timely manner [30 min or so]. The ice machine
on our floor was out of service the whole time we were there. The soda & snack
machines were serviced regularly. My daughter did lose her money once when a
bag of chips got stuck. By the time she got back with her mom to help, the
chips were gone so someone else got a freebie. The elevators were fast with
never more than a minute or so wait for a car. The pool area was fairly crowded
with kids of all ages. Towels & lounge chairs were provided for no charge.
There are pool toys available for rent. There is a drink/snack stand in the
pool area. The pool opens at nine AM but the sun doesn't make it over the
buildings until nearly noon. There are coin op laundry facilities in the RV
park area. Our kids enjoyed the indoor adventure dome. The allday pass is the
way to go there. The midway has a zillion games for kids of all ages. My girls
must've won 8 or 10 stuffed animals, one game had live rabbits as the prize but
we managed to give that one a miss. The food in the buffet was typical and of
commercial quality. I can't recommend it. The Pink Pony coffee shop was also
typical of the type with nothing really special. The pizzaria is OK. There is
a McDonalds that was crowded every time we passed it. We didn't eat in the
other resturants. There are many "shopping opportunities" in the hotel. Most
have the usual tourist souvenir type stuff. Do check out the magic shop, tho.
There are 3 casino areas. The Skyrise Casino has table games and slot machines.
While we were there, the tables were all closed. The other 2 casinos were well
staffed during "normal" hours. Out of 3 full size and 1 tub type crap tables
only one was in operation when I played. Table minimum was $3 in the early AM
going up to $5 the rest of the time. 2X odds were the rule with $15 allowed
behind a $5 6/8. [$10 6/8 got $25]. There was no heat on anyone who liked to
set the dice. [don't take too long, tho] Odds are included when rating your
play! My red action was rated at $75/hand. Be sure to sign up for a "One Club"
card as you will need it to be rated at any game. You will have to ask for
any comps due, with coffee shop/buffet the easiest to earn. [I love free steak!
and those comps come with line passes, too!] There were lots of slots, some
8/5 VP. BJ, roulette, Pai Gow and Carribian Stud tables were present with BJ
predominating. Cocktail service is availble for players but while very
friendly, it can be slow. All the Circus Circus staff menbers we came in
contact with were very friendly, patient with silly questions and were competent
at their jobs. Overall we had a pleasent stay and will stay at CC again.
One warning though, this isn't the place to stay if you don't like kids or
