Circus Circus: Only If YOU Hate Yourself
Posted May 16, 2017
Took the bate and purchased my hotel stay at Circus Circus, not knowing it is the worst "hotel" on the Las Vegas strip. Stayed in the manor, lock to enter building was broken, fire detector fell out of the ceiling, stained carpet, no room service till 4pm. No mini coffee machine you can use in the room. Vending machine near ice machine was $3.50 per can. EThe CC buffet was disgusting to say the least for $32 per person, the promo for the $20 food credit was only for one night. No real breakfast options apart from the cc buffet, krispy kreme, and Starbucks.
Upon switching to a "better" room, bathtub did not drain. The "resort" fee that doubled the hotel fee was pretty much not worth it because Circus Circus had nothing resort like about it. Not even circus acts. The "hotel" has pretty much gone down the drain. While there were other places to eat in the hotel, most already had really bad reviews, so we drove to Panera and IHOP, which were close by. Even CC subway was a no go area. How can a subway shop have a 1 star rating and still operate? I never thought that could be possible.
The casino also sucked, and it was scarcely packed like one would expect, wasn't lively or exciting, no one walking around bringing drinks, all suggesting that people that stay in circus circus do not gamble in its casino.
The free parking, which basically allows anyone to park there, despite the casino being empty was great. Interesting business model I guess.
