“Very dated.”
Reviewed 10 September 2012 via mobile

Great location but the hotel is in a major need of a make over. Very dated and my room wasn't very clean. Walking into the hotel was like stepping back in time. It wouldn't take much for a redue....
I would look at one of the other hotels before staying here.

This was our second stop on our labor weekend tour and I was iffy about staying with my toddler on a casino hotel. Casino just equals endless foggy smoke for me. However, I was pleasantly surprised that I couldn't even distinguish that we were anywhere near the casino. The noise level, the smoke level was such that I was able to sleep peacefully and so did my little one. The room was nice, beds were very comfortable..and the bathrooms were clean. The towels were soft and nicely tucked in the towel racks. There was a coffeemaker which was nice as we had to leave early the next day and didn't have time to grab something hot until later. The room had a hair dryer and ironing board, nice details for somebody on the go that had to freshen up some clothes for a party. There were hoards of people at the lobby as it was the labor weekend,but check-in was a breeze.

Room Tip: The second floor connects to the casino. The higher you are the better your privacy.

regardless of what you may think about circus circus, there customer service is second to none. we stayed here only becuse we couldnt get in anywhere else. the room was not to my liking ( asked for smoke free) they corrected the problem quickly and gave me a 40.00 voucher to the restaurant of my choice inside the circus.

they do have great food in the upper end restaurants and you can get away from the kids as well.

Room Tip: if you want a non smoking room make sure you ask before you go. also becuse this place is so big, wh...

Value for money is what i want and we got it here in shed loads.
We upgraded to a massive suite, somewhere you could easily stay for 6 months. About £90 a night, the same price as a tiny and useless room in Paris.
Jacuzzi bath, huge bed, living room, safe, high floor with city view, office desk, fridge--this place was superb.
People say it's tired, but if it's clean and luxurious who cares? Not us.

Room Tip: High floor.

My thoughts:

Overall, it sucked. It did give us a roof over our head, a place to shower and a bed to sleep on but eh.

Sleeping on the bed made my back hurt a lot more from the 8hr drive to Reno. It's almost water bed like. When my bf accidentally hit the side of the bed, you can see it move a lot. The pillows are smaller than a standard size pillow so you get 3 of them in a row + 2 square pillow. The blanket isn't even a blanket. It's just a throw covered in between 2 flat bed sheet.

The walls are so thin you can hear when the next door people are opening up the tv door.

The design is nice and not overly purple like on their site. The bed is actually white and gold vs the purple looking blanket in the picture.

In room service is outrageous. You might as well go downstairs and go get your food. They charge like a $1-4 delivery fee + 15% gratuity.

The front desk was super nice. Checking in/out was very easy.

Didn't get to eat here because everywhere closes early or doesn't open on certain days.
