No, Circus Circus is not Wynn but for the price it is a pretty damn good deal.
^^ Agree

I stayed at CC with my g/f the last time I went to LV. Overall we had a nice time and I was impressed with how nice the Tower room was (a flat screen TV, new carpet, relatively new furnishings).

I was always amazed with how much people would complain about CC on TripAdvisor. I didn't spend a lot of time at the property and the fact that the Deuce got me to the "newer" part of the strip in minutes made very good economic sense.

I think it depends on how you want your Vegas experience to be, honestly. If your there to sightsee on a budget and have no intentions spending large portion of your trip at the property, then a lower priced accommodation will do.

On the other hand if you plan to really utilize the resort (by resort I mean: pool, spa, restaurants, suites), another property that costs more is what you need to look at.

The thing I love about Las Vegas is someone on a budget can have just as a fulfilling experience as someone who's a higher class.

I agree with you on the bolded - but totally disagree with you on the higher class thing. People are people, no class higher than another (unless you want to count the royal family - but that is too messy and the debate can rage on) I know people that are really really wealthy and they would be ok about the CC, its just that everyone is different, what is a nice room for you can be a poor room for someone else.

I think some people are annoyed about the CC because of the mis selling of it. I can only speak about what I have read on the Trip Advisor and elsewhere and in ref to people from the UK. Like Tenzo mentioned the TA are paid more to plug the CC, when in reality it is a hike to the 'action' or you can wait around for a bus to take you to the 'action' so people from the UK feel a bit pissed off at that especially when they realise that for the cost of a few pounds more they could have a nicer hotel. So I understand their disappointment. Doing some research should have been the first thing on their to do list imo. I also put Strat into the crappy section also

I just thank goodness that I tried the Wynncore or I would never have gone back to LV ever, so for me, LV is a fantastic place to visit, I would place it in the top 20 of holiday places in the world.

NB 'action' is where most people gather be it downtown or strip proper

Everthing seems to be close, but circus circus is very far from the strip. I would strongly recommend IP. The rooms are very nice, stayed there the last week if July. Got a room with a balcony facing the pool and you can tell that the rooms have been remodeled and were very nice. The one thing that i noticed that every casino had kids in them. Either they were walking around, in the restaurants or at the pool which was an annoyance.

You're misinformed. Circus Circus is on the Strip. It's not on the same end as some of the mega hotels (Bellagio, Caesars Palace, Mirage), but it's on the Strip.

And, when Fountain Bleu and Echelon finally go up, that will be the 'happening' part of the strip again
(Like it was back in tha day when Stardust, The HO and Frontier were still there)
...man I miss those days

I agree. When I go to LV, I go there to be out and having fun- not to hang around a hotel room all day and night. Typically we get up about 10, shower and hit a buffet for breakfast and we are gone from the room until midnight or later. That is why I do not have a problem with CC. To me it is just a place to sleep, shower and maybe catch an hour of TV in the morning. The rest of the day we are in the casinos, the shows, the buffets, clubs, Red Rock, Summerlin, Lake Mead, The Grand Canyon (all day trip in itself). We did stay one night at Mandaly Bay only to experience the pool- which is wonderful but the drinks are overpriced.
Like I said, the rooms are clean and the Tower rooms are really great for the small amount of time we spend in them.

I might point out too that CC is the ONLY strip hotel to have an RV park on the property. None of the other hotels host RV tourist.

Children are not supposed to be IN the casinos but since they can walk through the casinos en route to another destination, sometimes they mess around. Sounds and flashing lights are like a magnet to children. Usually they get ran off in pretty short order.

And this is a plus???? It suggests trailer trash to me! Camping on The Strip is odd, at best.

You of course are kidding, right? An RV is NOT a mobile home. And "trailer trash" cannot afford what an RV cost. A pull trailer- even a 25 footer is going to set you back about $18,000 and a motorhome will cost you well over $70,000. Most of the people that buy them are well heeled retirees that like to go to different parts of the country several times a year. And I would think that the strip would be a great place to set up shop for a few weeks. The place was about 3/4 full when I was there last.
