If you’re stretching every penny on your Vegas trip, Circus Circus could be a viable option for you. It’s one of the most budget-friendly hotels on The Strip, but bear in mind, you get what you pay for.

The rooms may not be top-notch, but they’re serviceable if you’re not planning to spend much time there.

As for location, it’s nestled on the north end of The Strip, right next door to Resorts World and Fountainbleu. If you fancy exploring, Sahara and Wynn are just a brisk 10-minute walk away.

Despite lacking ticketed shows, Circus Circus makes up for it with free circus acts in the Midway – a delightful treat especially if you’re traveling with kids.

Plus, the resort houses The Adventuredome theme park and a fantastic pool area, ensuring you’re never short on fun activities.

When it comes to dining, the resort offers a plethora of affordable restaurants and fast-food joints. But the crowning glory is The Steak House, considered one of the finest steakhouses in Las Vegas.

At Circus Circus you should expect a budget-friendly stay packed with casual entertainment, convenient dining options, and a location that puts you in proximity to some of Vegas’ famous landmarks.
