Although it may seem preposterous, some hotels in Las Vegas are geared to kids -- like Circus Circus, which is located at the northern end of the Strip. Book a room here and the whole family will be able to embark on a flight of fancy.Start your adventure at The Adventuredome, a five-acre theme park situated beneath a climate-controlled dome covered with pink glass. It contains at least 25 unique rides. The brave at heart can hop on the Canyon Blaster, a double-loop, double-corkscrew roller coaster. The younger set is sure to enjoy Miner Mike, a runaway coal train, or the Thunderbirds, a squadron of not-so-high-flying 1920s-style airplanes. Plus, several virtual reality film rides are broadcast in the FX Theatre, including "SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D" and "Happy Feet: Mumble's Wild Ride 4-D," for all ages. The Adventuredome has recently added a new roller coaster -- El Loco. After a 90-foot ascent, the 72-second ride offers negative G drops, gravity-defying turns and over-the-edge twists.Parents looking for more adult-oriented pastimes can play slots in the nearby Skyrise Casino or head downstairs to the main casino floor, where there is race and sports book, more than 40 table games (note: free lessons in poker, blackjack, roulette and craps are offered daily) and more than 1,500 of the latest slot and video poker machines.Ironically, situated above is the famed Circus Circus Midway, where you can win stuffed animals and other toys by trying your luck at one of more than 200 popular carnival games. In the center of all the action is the Midway Stage, home to free live circus acts featuring performers from around the world. Shows run every half hour from early afternoon until late at night.You'll actually encounter clownin' around everywhere on the property. Since opening in 1968, Circus Circus has presented roving clowns and other beloved circus acts not only on stages in the Midway and The Adventuredome, but also wandering the floor space throughout both facilities -- this includes the lobby, the shopping promenade and other gathering spots. Clowns are like ambassadors at Circus Circus. In addition to their merrymaking, they answer questions, give directions and make any waits in line pass by enjoyably.When it's time to eat, you'll find something for everyone at this resort -- from quick snacks to full-service restaurants and the massive Circus Buffet. The gourmet dining room, THE Steak House, has long been acclaimed for its perfectly prepared prime cuts of meat cooked on a mesquite charcoal broiler. The Garden Grill serves a menu of American favorites, and the Pizzeria is a whimsical spot for freshly baked pizza with an array of tempting toppings. Pick up a sweet treat at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, an overstuffed sandwich at the Westside Deli or a bagel and a cup of joe at Barista. And don't miss the most enchanting eatery on the premises -- a snack bar in the Midway designed to resemble a carousel. It rotates high above the casino floor -- and the gelato is simply divine!Rock 'n' roll legend Vince Neil has opened two party-oriented venues at Circus Circus. Vince Neil's Tatuado Eat-Drink-Party! has a mouth-watering menu with a selection of the Mötley Crüe front man's signature burgers and burritos. Vince Neil's Party Bus Bar, located just upstairs from the restaurant, features flair bartenders and party girls offering up shots and other creative cocktails. Rounding out the amenities at Circus Circus are pools, the Alexandra Noel Beauty Salon and shops that sell everything from designer fragrances to taffy and old-time photos. Want to tie the knot? Weddings are conducted in the Chapel of the Fountain, which has a romantic English garden setting.Circus Circus boasts several different kinds of accommodations. There are comfortable, traditional rooms along with 135 spacious suites in the West, Casino and Skyrise towers. Circus Circus Manor is a series of five three-story buildings that offer motor lodge-style rooms and parking. Plus, the KOA Circusland RV Park is spread out on 23 acres and encompasses a convenience store, an arcade, a laundry facility, a playground, pet runs and a large entertainment-oriented room.Clearly, the ultimate, affordable, family-style resort in Las Vegas is Circus Circus. Where else would you have easy access to a midway under a pink-and-white big top as well as a giant indoor theme park?-- By Renée LiButti

Yes, I recommend this product.
We had the kiddos with us and felt that for the price and what the hotel offers, Circus Circus was the way to go.
PostedApril 21, 2013
We knew going into this that Circus Circus was not an upscale hotel by any means. I think our expectations were low and they shouldn't have been, it was a great stay and our boys enjoyed themselves. Love the Krispy Kreme on the Casino level for the hubs and I to enjoy morning coffee too! We looked forward to it each morning. Our beds were really comfortable and the rooms were clean and cozy.
Just a few things I might change up:
1. The pool: leaves a lot to be desired, it could certainly use an upgrade especially to be more kid friendly with slides, and/or diving boards, or just something more than looking like a low class apartment complex. More than one spa on the property would be nice too
2. It seems that the casino ventilation system might not be as upgraded as some of the others on the strip because the smoke was killer - but I was fine with holding my breath most of the way through and just breathing through my mouth
3. We received $40 in food credits to be used at one of two of the hotel restaurants, which is awesome! However, it could only be used at two of the restaurants and only after 5pm, so we were only able to use one of them, our first night there, the other days we were not back to our hotel in time - AND because of my diet I try not to eat after 6pm, so it limited us
4. We used vegas.com to book our room, it was like $40 something a night (cheap!!!) but when we got to the hotel we were surprised with a $30 fee - the food voucher would have helped if we had been able to use it, but that fee was not ideal
Again, we were happy with the stay, these are some things that would have made our stay even more positive.

Airport Transportation

Is there a shuttle service from the airport to Circus Circus Hotel Casino ?
Nope. The cab from the airport at 9pm cost us $25, not including tip. We headed back to the airport about 11:30am and it was $24 not including the tip. Both were on weekdays - Tuesday and Friday.
