From Circus-Circus to Belagio would probably be 20 minutes. Circus Circus to MGM Grand would be 30 - 40 minutes walking. The strip is quite long, and the distances are pretty big. You could always catch the mono-rail between the hotels. From Circus Circus you would have to walk over the Hilton to catch it, but it would drop you at Bally's (across Las Vegas Blvd from Bellagio) and the MGM Grand in short order.

The hotel itself is okay. I haven't personally stayed there, but know people who have. It's not one of the top hotels on the strip, but certainly isn't a flea-infested dump or anything. My biggest problem with it is being on the North end of the strip. I'd rather stay centrally or on the south end of the strip. But that's also personal opinion, so take it for what it's worth.

Greg gave you good advice. Circus Circus is not centrally located, but do not let that deter you from staying there. The room prices should be much less than anything closer to MGM or Bellagio. It is a bit run down by Vegas standards, but certainly acceptable for most of us.

Stay at Circus Circus, take the city bus to where you want to go. The 'Deuce' or double decker bus is quite popular on the Strip route. A great view and photo ops from the top deck. One ride is $2, or all day pass for $5. Get an all day pass and your transport problem is solved.
The walk from Circus to MGM is really more than most visitors can easily do. Use the bus system.

Send me a PM if you have any Vegas questions.

I tried walking from Fashion Show Mall to Circus Circus once but halfway I stopped and turned back coz it's pretty far and nothing interesting to see on the way there. However, I can walk from MGM to the Wynn Resort with no problems coz there's so many things to see.

Take the Duece.
