What is going on with Circus Circus

I always understood that this hotel/casino was at the bottom end of the pricing but when I put in our dates of 10th/11th October 2012 it shows anything (depending on sites) from $388 to $500+ per night while places like Luxor, MGM and Mirage are all around the $100 a night mark? What is going on at CC???? Cheers, Karen

Dont even consider staying there because if you do,you will regret it.For a couple of hundred extra pounds there are much much better places.As an example ive just booked for a week at the Mirage in July for £505,got 2 flights with Virgin for just under £1000, having said we wouldnt go back i couldnt turn it down at that price.

If you're looking at prices for Circus Circus because you're thinking of staying there, don't. It's gross, and it's a long walk away from anyplace you might actually want to be.

CC is a distance from the main part of the strip. It is not considered one of the better hotels in Vegas (understatment of the year). In fact, many consider it to be the worst hotel on the strip. It is really for families who are bringing their kids to Vegas. Even then, many wouldn't stay there.

It is way too early to even think of booking a hotel for October IMHO.

With those prices maybe the hotel is trying to delude you into thinking that its a high class joint!

Far to early to be booking anywhere.

To the people who are writing CC off as a dump, please tell us about your terrible experiences when you stayed in the hotel?? Of course its not high class but i have friends who stayed there a couple years back and had a great time. Loved their room and had no problems at all.

I just get a bit miffed when everyone jumps on the bandwagon to slate the place when they havent even stayed there themselfs.

At least the place is still open.

@bikerbear.....

1. It is themselves...not themselfs.

2. Cc is a dump and no matter what anyone says, it always will be a dump.

3. Just as you were irked, I am irked when someone has to justify that a place is good just because they have stayed there.

4. It is what it is. A low cost, run down, budget property which has been marketed to the UK as a great value to keep travel package prices as cheap as possible.

I have not stayed at Circus Circus. I have visited the public areas and played in the casino. I thought the property was old, dingy, dirty, depressing, and sticky. I didn't really want to touch anything. While I have not seen the rooms and they may well be OK, I would not want to stay in the nicest room in Vegas if it were surrounded by the public areas of Circus Circus.

NJC- you might want to get down off of your horse. I havent stayed there but friends have and i respect someones opinion slightly more when i actually know said person.

I asked for peoples terrible experiences who have stayed there so unless you have 1 then i dont know why your even replying to my post.
