Insider's Look At: Las Vegas Circus Circus

One of the hardest parts of getting ready to book a vacation is deciding where to stay within your desired budget. You go online, search through dozens of sites, trying to decode the pictures to figure out which have been airbrushed or shot from an angle that make them look better than they are.

Then you show up, and the moment of truth arrives - you find out that the room/hotel is not as nice as you were hoping.

As a travel agent, I stay at a variety of hotels and resorts, so I've decided to share with you insider views of places that I stay to help you make better travel decisions. 

Obviously, I'm only one person, so I can't give you an exhaustive list. However, if you have a place that you'd really like to see, post it in the comments below and I'll keep it in mind! :) 

Today I'm going to share with you a couple of video segments I shot here in Vegas regarding Circus Circus, a budget hotel and casino located on the strip. These are MY opinions, so you may have had a different experience than I did, but I still wanted to share my experiences. 

To give you a little bit of a comparison, I also took a quick tour of The Venetian lobby. As part of the conference I was in Las Vegas for, The Venetian sold out very quickly and I didn't get the chance to stay there, but WOW what a difference between a budget hotel and a luxury hotel!!

What are your opinions on these hotels, or recommendations for other places on the strip to stay?
