plan on packing walking shoes - it's at the far end of the strip

it's three miles from CC to Tropicana blvd/las vegas blvd. Where the MGM Grand is.

Hope that helps

If you're looking for a low priced hotel in an excellent location check out Imperial Palace. They sometimes have amazing deals. CC has some fun, but not upscale, places close to it. The Duece bus stops right out front & you can easily hop on it to get to the mid & south places on the strip, or head the other way and you're downtown on Fremont St.

It will be great once Echelon is built (if that ever happens). Perhaps Circus Circus will even raise their prices a bit once Echelon is up and booming.

I know in the older days, before I lived here, I used to stay at CC because I loved the proximity to Stardust and Frontier and it was slightly cheaper.

Low-priced, yes, but in this case, you definitely get what you pay for. I wouldn't recommend the IP to anyone unless I disliked them - a lot.

The two things I remember from the one time I stayed there - shower heads in the guest rooms were made to accommodate people no taller than 5-foot-1, and the buffet was in the same class with the Riviera, Terrible's and Circus Circus. That is not a compliment.

The location and the car museum on site are its major advantages.

CC and IP are the bottom feeders of the strip.

I totally agree. In way of no means did I mean earlier that I thought CC was a nice place. Just a really cheap place to stay if you're young, and need a place to shower and store your luggage

Also, if you don't have the $$ to spend on accomodations, once Echelon is finished, what I meant earlier was that you could sleep at CC (if you don't mind risking bedbugs) but hang out at Echelon et al.

Never stayed at IP, but have heard it's very similar to CC, Riviera and Sahara....actually heard Sahara is the worst of those 3 as far as hotel rooms go.

I agree, but the IP is in an excellent location & accessable to everything. Not everyone needs a Venetian or a Bellagio to be satisfied. IP is probably the most popular place for poker players to stay because of location & price. And BTW, no need to eat at the IP buffet when you've got all the best in town within a short walk.
OP is planning to stay at CC. I just think IP is a much better choice.

The most obvious down side to Circus Circus is that it is a venue that is targeted at CHILDREN. While planning a trip once, a friend cautioned me that the rooms are sub-par and the facility is over-run with kids all the time (except the casino, of course, which is off limits to kids).

If you are looking for a "family" [shudder] atmosphere, then I'm sure you would be most happy there, however, if you would like to have a relatively child-free, adult, Las Vegas experience, I'd certainly recommend some place else (any place else).
