Circus Circus Hotel Casino & Theme Park is one of the oldest properties on the Las Vegas Strip. It opened in 1968 and has become a budget-friendly favorite through the years, especially among families traveling to Las Vegas. Circus Circus rooms are affordable, comfortable, and offer a great location.
Here’s a rundown of Circus Circus rooms, including what to expect during your stay.
Hotel Rooms & Suites at Circus Circus Hotel Casino & Theme Park
Casino Tower Rooms
The casino tower rooms are relaxing and serene, with decor balanced between soothing earth tones and deep jewel tones. When you stay in one of the Casino Tower rooms, you’re close to all the action and casino games on the casino floor.
Guests can choose between a room that features two queen beds or a room with a single king bed. The Casino Tower King Room is available in two sizes – 364 sq ft or 434 sq ft.
All the standard amenities are included. Your room will have free wifi, cable tv, a flat-panel television, an in-room safe, and other amenities. Extra beds and a drink refrigerator are available at an extra charge.
Skyrise Tower Rooms
The Skyrise Tower Rooms are located in a 29-story tower that overlooks the outdoor pool. If you like lounging the afternoon away under pool umbrellas with a cool drink in your hand from the poolside bar, these are the rooms for you.
The decor of the double queen bedrooms is warm and inviting. There are lots of rich jewel tones, but they’re blended with softer, neutral colors for a more relaxing vibe.
The Skyrise Tower Rooms are 351 sq ft and sleep a max of four guests.
West Tower Rooms
The West Tower is the tallest tower at Circus Circus Las Vegas. Stretching a full 35 stories into the sky, the rooms at the West Tower offer a great view in addition to free wifi, an in-room safe, a desk area, cable tv, and flat-panel plasma television. As with the other rooms, cribs, extra beds, and a drink refrigerator can all be had for a small additional charge.
West Tower Rooms are available in both queen and king bed options, with each room measuring 364 ft.
Circus Circus doesn’t list any suites on its website, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist. The Executive Suite at Circus Circus has a reputation for existing but rarely being seen. If you want to verify reviews and see for yourself, contact Circus Circus for more information about their Executive Suite availability.
Manor Motor Lodge
The Manor Motor Lodge rooms are among the least spacious rooms at Circus Circus, but they basically have the same amenities, just in a slightly smaller space and usually at a lesser price.
All of the Manor Motor Lodge Rooms are 351 sq ft, and guests have their choice between Double Queen Beds, Single Manor King, or the Manor Double King.
The decor of the Manor Motor Lodge rooms is simple and neutral. There’s nothing flashy about these rooms, but they are comfortable for your stay in Las Vegas.
Each of the Manor Motor Lodge Rooms accommodates a maximum of four guests, which is perfect for small families. All rooms include amenities such as cable television and pay-to-view channels, free wifi, an alarm clock, a hair dryer, an in-room safe, and a small desk area to keep up with all of your to-dos while you’re away.
Cribs and a mini-fridge are available for a small extra charge per night. The Manor Rooms are located in a Circus Circus complex that’s half a block from the main lobby.
Cheapest Circus Circus Rooms
The cheapest rooms at Circus Circus are those in the Manor Motor Lodge. These rooms are located about a half mile away from the hotel lobby. This means there is a short walk to get to them, which is a big part of why they’re cheaper. It’s not uncommon to score one of these rooms for about $25, not including the resort fee.
While they might be a bit separated, you still get all the regular amenities, including free wifi, fitness center access, and access to the swimming pool complex. These rooms are available in options with both king and queen beds.
Currently, Circus Circus Hotel Casino & Theme Park does not offer an option for smoking rooms at their hotel. All types of smoking are prohibited in their rooms, including smoking cigarettes, cigars, marijuana, vapes, and hookahs. Anyone who smokes in an area that is designated as non-smoking will be subject to a cleaning charge of $300.
Circus Circus does offer various areas throughout their property that is designated for smoking in the casino, some bars, and several other areas. Someone from guest services will be happy to direct you to the nearest smoking area.
Circus Circus Hotel Casino & Theme Park does offer select rooms that are designed with accessibility features, including a limited number of rooms with a roll-in shower.
If you need an accessible room, contacting the property directly to make your reservation is the best way to ensure you get the accommodations you need. All accessible rooms at Circus Circus Hotel Casino include all the same property amenities as their standard rooms.
Rooms Overlooking the Pool
The Skyrise Tower at Circus Circus is where you’ll find rooms that are located closest to the hotel pool complex. The pool at Circus Circus is one of the hotel’s most family-friendly amenities. It includes two pools, whirlpools, a 50-ft slide tower, and a super fun splash pad for children of all ages.
If you want to be close to the pool access (and the poolside bar!), make sure to book one of the 29-story Skyrise Tower Rooms. Not only is there a great view of the outdoor pool, but also great views of the Las Vegas skyscape.
Circus Circus has been a part of the Las Vegas scenery for so long that it’s impossible to imagine the property’s impact on the city over the years. Unfortunately, for all the fun times that are had at the Circus Circus Hotel Casino, there have been some traffic happenings as well.
Circus Circus has a bit of a reputation for being haunted, especially a room that was numbered 123, where a specific horrendous tragedy occurred. We’ll spare the details of this and the other unfortunate happenings at Circus Circus, but let’s just say that plenty of staff and visitors have a few haunted stories of their own to tell.
Most of the hauntings are rather innocent. Things like messed up bed sheets and rearranged furniture, are common, along with messages on mirrors, strange sounds in the halls, ghostly business travelers passing by, and a small child seeking solace. If you look hard enough, you can even find a few guest reviews that tell their own tales.
Are the hauntings real? We have no idea, but we’ll take one of the non-haunted rooms during our next stay, just in case.
Arrival and Paying for Your Room at Circus Circus
When you arrive at Circus Circus Hotel Casino & Theme Park, you’ll first enter the hotel lobby, where you’ll be met by the friendly staff at the front desk, who are eager to greet guests.
The minimum age of the person checking in is 21 years or older. Anyone under this age must have someone of the minimum age reserve, be present, and pay for the room.
Rooms can be booked in advance using a credit or debit card. With advanced booking, the desk will need to see the guest’s credit card prior to check-in. The credit card must be the same one that was used for the booking confirmation, and it must match the name and photo identification of the person checking in.
An approved amount will be charged to the card that covers the cost of the room, plus resort fees and additional funds to cover applicable charges, room service, additional inclusions, and room charging privileges. The property reserves the right to run an availability minimum check to ensure you have the line of open credit to cover these charges. Based on the discretion of the check-in staff at Circus Circus, a cash deposit may also be required.
Guests pay the resort fee for their intended stay upfront. Adjustments can be made at a later date if necessary. In the event that a guest’s charges exceed the amount put on a credit card hold, Circus Circus Hotel Casino Las Vegas will change the finalized amount charged to credit to reflect those changes. For example, if a cash deposit was given, overages could come out of that instead.
If there are unused funds from the originally approved amount, the amount will be released back onto your card. If you’ve used a debit card to reserve your room, it may take up to seven business days for the refund to show in your account if you use domestic banks and up to thirty days if it’s going through international banks instead.
Check-In & Check-Out Times
Check-in time at Circus Circus Hotel Casino & Theme Park is 3 pm, and standard check-out times are 11 am every day of the week. If you need alternate arrangements, contact Circus Circus so that guest services can help arrange the accommodations you need. Free cancellation and a savings voucher may be available through certain booking services.
