Critic's Review

The experience at Circa begins with security scanning your drivers license. They claim that it's because Circa is an Adult Only Hotel; no kids allowed. But they don't just check ID; they scan your license, and if you don't have a valid ID they won't let you in.

Inside, I was surprised by Circa. As a new property I expected something new and shiny; something like Resorts World. But Circa feels old. Probably by design, but it didn't appeal to me at all.

Circa Entrance

The neon cowgirl is some sort of theme here; I guess if you lived in Vegas in the 80s it means something to you.

I wanted some cold brew and there's no Starbuck's in this hotel; they have a coffee house that claimed to have cold brew, but I think they just gave me iced coffee. It was $8 and it wasn't very good.

They play loud house music in the casino and it's so offensive I couldn't wait to get out of the place. Sean Paul, Basshunter. Like a bad club.

The crowd is rough around the edges; who likes this kind of music?

Circa Casino 2

They have a huge Sports Book theatre. Not a lot of sports fanaticism in the place.

They have a place that claims to be a Jewish Deli, without the service. It's open 24 hours.

Gambling is the game here, if you can stand the music.

Circa Tables

And added bonus is the Table Dancers; creating a really classy environment.

In the rear by the Freemont street exit is the Mega Bar.

Touted as the "longest bar in Nevada". It is quite long at 165 feet.

The "Garage Mahal" touted as a technological masterpiece, has no AC (or it's not on). You can sweat it out waiting for your ride share. It was about 96 degrees on this day and it was HOT in the garage.

Conclusion

Circa may appeal to some, but it's certainly not my kind of place. I don't like having my license scanned at all; much less as a requirement to entry. And with bad music playing it's just not a place I'd want to eat, gamble or watch sports.

Tried to get in with photo of ID. Unable. I’m almost 60….obviously the scan is not for age verification

Just avoid the place. Simple.

How can you have a pro of “adults only” and a “con” of no kids. It’s the same thing.

If you have kids it's a "con", if you don't it may be a "pro".

No kidding. I had 3 nights booked and we left after the first night. Couldn't stand the place.
