Las Vegas may be a playground for adults but there is one place that's all about the kids.Head toward the north end of the Strip and you really can't miss the giant neon clown sign and massive pink and white circus tent-shaped building that is Circus Circus, a classic Las Vegas hotel since 1968.The hotel is so iconic you've seen it in movies like "Diamonds Are Forever" and "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery." It was also mentioned in Hunter S. Thompson's famous book, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas."  In fact, we think he described it perfectly: "The place is about four stories high, in the style of a circus tent, and all manner of strange county fair/Polish carnival madness is going on up in this space." That madness is exactly what makes Circus Circus such a great place for families. The accommodations are affordable and you'll find an absolutely endless supply of entertainment for people of all ages.True to its theme, the hotel boasts the world's largest permanent circus under a big top inside. Just follow the sounds of guests oohing and aahing and you'll find acts like aerialists, jugglers, acrobats and trapeze artists flying through the air with the greatest of ease. The best part? The performances are totally free.Sharpen your ring tossing skills and head to the midway, which offers more than 200 classic carnival games. Didn't win at the tables? You can at least win yourself a giant stuffed animal here. There's also an arcade with classic and current video games.Go back to your room and take a quick power nap because, even though it doesn't seem possible, the fun doesn't stop there. The biggest attraction at Circus Circus is The Adventuredome, America's largest indoor theme park. It doesn’t matter if it's the hottest summer day or a chilly winter afternoon, the dome is a comfortable 72 degrees and ready for action year-round.The five-acre park has a dizzying (literally) array of rides to choose from. The brave at heart can hop on the Canyon Blaster, a double-loop, double-corkscrew roller coaster. The younger set will enjoy Miner Mike, a runaway coal train, or the Thunderbirds, a squadron of not-so-high-flying 1920s-style airplanes. The Adventuredome's newest thrill is the El Loco roller coaster. If you're loco enough to ride it, you'll experience a 90-foot ascent, negative G drops, gravity-defying turns and over-the-edge twists.Parents might need a bit of adult time after all that sensory overload and luckily Circus Circus has plenty for the 21 and older crowd too. The resort has a full casino, a race and sports book and there's the adjacent Slots A Fun casino where you can play the slots, shoot some darts or watch sports on big screen TVs.Adults will also appreciate the hotel's gourmet dining room, THE Steak House, which has earned acclaim in Las Vegas for more than 30 years for its perfectly prepared prime cuts of meat and old school service. If you're still standing at the end of a fun-filled day with the kids at Circus Circus, you deserve a shot, so head to rock 'n' roll legend Vince Neil's Tatuado Eat-Drink-Party! and Party Bus Bar, which features flair bartenders and party girls offering up creative cocktails.

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.
