Circus Circus Hotel Review Las Vegas

Circus Circus Las Vegas first popped up on the strip in 1968 and originally featured a traditional American style circus but in 1997 the hotel changed its theme to a Quebec Cirque du Soleil style circus and added a 35 story tower. The hotel is much more kid friendly than most on the strip and really inexpensive too. In fact, it’s the only RV park on the strip and they also have a campground available for those who want to combine gambling and decadence with camping.

Staying at Circus Circus

Circus Circus bills itself as the best value on the strip and if you’re simply looking for cheap rooms then they’re probably right. Rooms include the basics, cable TV and pay channels, wireless internet and remarkably the hotel feels the need to advertise that each room has a hair dryer, an iron and an ironing board. The new tower is probably the best place to stay as the newly built structure has updated rooms with more space and amenities that the others. The Manor Rooms are standard hotel rooms, meant simply to provide you with a bed and shower between gambling and shows. Actually, the most luxurious part of Circus Circus is probably the RV Park with a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, laundry facilities, showers and restrooms, a convenience store, pet runs, and a video game arcade.
