Flamingo Las Vegas

Date Visited: 08/11 - Good Visit

This was our sixth trip to Las Vegas, and our first stay at the Flamingo.



Although the rooms (our party rented two for four days each) have seen better days, they were clean, and serviced like clockwork by friendly housekeeping staff.



Warning: if you expect to use the free Nathan Burton coupon, they were booking two weeks down the road as at August 22, which was outside the parameters of our stay. (Donny and Marie is dark until Sep 5).



Travelling with my daughter and her friend, we greatly enjoyed the pool area and wildlife habitat, although my daughter enjoyed the loud poolside music a tad more than my wife and I!



Because of a large convention, we had to pay considerably more for our rooms earlier in the week, but if you play your cards right (pun intended), you can get a decent, clean room with the best location on the Strip for $44 a night!



Would definitely come again!

I was unsure to stay here, but once we arrived it turned out to be a great place to stay. Our room was clean, and well kept. The only thing I noticed was the rug was worn, clean but it has seen better days. This place was well worth the visit and I would go there again

Stayed at flamingo for four days in june 2010 I recieved complimentary upgrade to go room and it was an amazing room. spent hours playing with electronic drapes and there is nothing like being able to watch sportscenter on tv in bathroom as you make a deposit in the porcelain princess. They beds were amazingly comfortable and never had better anywhere on the strip. The gambling wasn't very profitable but the drink service was the best i've had anywhere on the strip , they were a little watered down , but very plentiful. Overall a great stay great service and wonderful rooms and don't forget to check out the outside patio at margaritaville .....wickedly fun !!!!!!

Stayed here for 4 nights. Did not upgrade to Go Room, didn't need it. Our room was clean, no noise & cheap. What more can you ask for, we only sleep there.

Casino was packed but still was able to find machines to play at. Could not win a dime at Blackjack this trip but the slots saved us, at least somewhat.

Best of all, the annoying Time Share people are not in the building anymore. Can walk the building in peace. That was one of the reasons we stopped staying here for a few years.

Date Visited: 10/09 - Good Visit

I have been coming to Vegas since I was 10 yrs old with my parents I am now in my 50's so I have seen alot of changes over the years. Stayed at Flamingo before but decided to give it another shot stayed twice in the month of Oct.2009 the first visit being 10/7-11/09 we upgraded to the GO room because my husband likes coffee in the morning and I need a fridge for medical reasons the GO rooms have a coffee pot, but the GO rooms not worth the cost of the upgrade. We could have ordered room service for the coffee and it would have been cheaper, the fridge is free for medical reasons. The bathroom has a seperate shower and the tv in mirror was different but there was not a bathroom door just a frosted glass sliding door. With what we spent for the upgrade we could of had a really nice dinner or gone to another show. The buffet was not up to par but Tropical Breeze coffee shop was excellent and the Burger Joint was very good, service at both was great. Had a view of the pool which was nice. Now my second stay 10/25-30/09 was for my girls trip have taken this girls trip for the last 11 years, we just got the standard room and had a view of Bill's parking garage and Flamingo Road and Ballys it was ok for the amount of time we were in the room. We stayed there because of the price and location. Would probably not stay there again we like TI much better. Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville excellent place to eat gotta try the shrimp/corn chowder. Donny & Marie a must. Was in the gift shop one night about 10:20 and who is in there looking at her jewelry but Marie Osmond, she was very nice and took a picture with me. Wanna see 2 other good shows go see Terry Fator at the Mirage and if you like Motown you have to see Human Nature at Imperial Palace brought me back to my high school days the place was rockin. Now for a sandwich that outdoes any other go eat at Carniege Deli in the Mirage, no lie 3 people can eat a regular sandwich and the Woody Allen serves 6. Best buffet is at the Wynn and be sure to check out their Lake of Dreams. Be sure to head downtown to Fremont Street the light show is exceptional all of them one every hour starting at 7pm till midnight. Go into Binions and play the Virtual Blackjack min. bet $3.00 and alot of fun no pressure from dealers or pit boss.

Last time I stay here. I have been three times in the last 18 months and no more! I gave them one last chance on my last trip. Upon check in I even commented that my rooms had been a bit shoddy over on the last two trips. U was given a 27th floor strip view. Okay I guess but as a Diamond player, is it wrong that I expect a bit more?



I stayed here because my friend wanted a good pool which we received but give me a break on the Imperial Palace style rooms and showers in the bathrooms.



The casino staff was pretty nice and the Craps crews were good as always but I am done with this old girl and her nasty unrenovated rooms. There are other places to stay for the same amount of money.



And it must be said, the buffet was the worst I have had since I hit the Excalibur about 8 years ago and left hungry! My friend and his two sons were there as well and they liked the Imperial Palace buffet better! When kids are saying that, it should tell you something!

We have been staying at the Flamingo for about 5 years now. We are Diamond members and when we check I go to Diamond Club check in, no lineups and get my key and am in the room in minutes. The last room we had was a suite on 27 floor. The room has a dining room with 2 huge bedrooms and 3 baths. 7 TV's in room. It was a real treat to have the room. There is a dining room with table to seat 10 people. There is a bar with fridge. The view was of the pool area. The room was clean. The service was great. If we needed something it was there in minutes.

Go room was clean and nice. Housekeeping service was good. I had a problem with the toilet in the room being clogged and I called maintenance in the morning; the problem was fixed by the time I returned to the room in the afternoon. The Flamingo property is nice and, even though the weather was too cool to go swimming for most of my stay, sitting outside in the Flamingo "forest" was a nice escape from the casino. The casino itself is very noisy and plain, with music constantly blasting. The drink service was excellent, but almost to the point of being annoying with the waitresses seemingly begging me to order a drink so they can get a tip (yes, a thin line between excellent service and annoying service). The coffee shop is a plain coffee shop, not bad but not good. The buffet at the Flamingo was the most mediocre buffet I have seen in Las Vegas, and I would not waste my money there again. Overall, my stay at the Flamingo was good and I would recommend the hotel to others. Just avoid the coffee shop and buffet.

The Flamingo Check in line is always too long and there seems to be a shortage of working clerks, yet there are enough of them standing around or chatting with each other. We checked into a "GO ROOM" on the 22nd floor. The windows had some sort of mesh covering which obstructed the view. It was completely annoying to have to look through and a better answer would have been window tinting. Why offer a strip view and then obscure it so much that it's an aggravation? The large flat screen tv was nice as was the small one in the bathroom mirror. Neither tv offered a channel schedule. The large tv took a long time to change channels. There was a DVD player on the table below the tv, but we didn't bring any DVD movies with us. Who goes to VEGAS to watch movies in their hotel room? The decor was ok, but nothing exciting, and it was strange that the same light switch controlled both the entry area and closet. The toilet-shower room lacked a HEATER or a VENTILATING fan, which are essential for any up-to-date hotel room. See through glass shower doors are not preferred either. The casino is a black hole for your cash and coin. Someone needs to turn OFF the STINGY SWITCH once in a while. The Tropical Breeze Cafe is not very customer friendly either and serves pricy food of marginal quality. The chicken dinner I ordered was frozen, which is completely unacceptable. After that horrible meal, we always ate elsewhere. The Habitat is an enjoyable place to visit. Sadly, I can't recommend this property for a stay. Better places with better restaurants are all around. I will definitely not stay at the Flamingo again.

The casino is dated and beat up looking: the room is old the AC makes alot of noise: turning on and off! I've had better that's for sure: the location is great and service is very good: very crowded: the pool was jammed pack and somewhat dumpy I thought. Only stay here for location and value: your only 200 yards from Caesars which is first class.

Basically I paid the 'high' dollar for a Strip view.... that was a mistake. The strip view consisted of looking straight down from your window facing front....not good to look up and down the strip as I assumed it would be. Also, each nite at around 10 p.m. the 'hot girls' would show up and dance on the counter with poles.... (sort of like stripper girls) and the music was SO LOUD you could not get to sleep..... Was constantly being hawked by people who want you to see a dinner and a show for $10 OR come see their vacation property for a $99 future trip to Vegas.... Let me 'enjoy' my vacation now... and not be hawked. These people should not be allowed in the lobby area. The TV - although being big screen was very very slow to change channels.... (but the one in the mirror in the bathroom was cool and easy to change channels !) Carpeting in the hallway was very dirty and outdated... I thought we were staying in the 1970's with the carpet that was there. In the 'other' part... (off strip) the carpeting and elevators were really nice. the gardens were fantastic... nice bird area .... and I heard the pool was nice... didn't get time to enjoy that. Next time I will try the Bellagio.... their casino was nice and quiet - you could 'think' and the one guy at Black Jack was very helpful to someone who is 'learning' !! Rick at the Roulette table was very nice too..... just a totally nice atmosphere over there - will definitely stay there next time !!!

This was our third visit this year and the tenth in the last three years.

I can honestly say we never had an issue with anything at the hotel or casino(OK the machines are a little "tight"). My wife and I take my Dad who is 87 this year and he loves playing Let it Ride and BJ. The pit treats him like a king. The Tropical cafe is good (a lot of food) and Steakhouse 46 can't be beat. Go rooms are good size, clean and comfortable, but who stays in the room anyway. Bartenders at both main bars are great, they remember your drinks according to the time of day Bloody marys to rum and coke to martini's to scotch. (Hi Steve and Mike)

Some of the reviews of this place are astounding. I am a middle-of-the-roader as far as Vegas experience is concerned. I gravitate toward value but will not do without just to save a buck. If there is something we want to do, we do it. If there is a coupon or discount available, we will use it. That having been said, here is my review of our stay at the Flamingo...



The room on the 32nd floor overlooking the Bellagio fountains was not the cleanest or nicest we've stayed in on Vegas trips. It was not unacceptable though. I basically paid $200 for 7 nights at the flamingo as part of a package deal through SWA. I would say I got much more than my money's worth. The room was average, but the view of the fountains was great. Everything worked in the room and there were no hassles during our trip. The location is great. Margaritaville is a cool hangout. It's right beside Bill's which is one of our favorite places to gamble. Just walk across the street to Bellagio or Caesar's if you want a good place to eat. Also, the Paris Buffet is very good. The Flamingo pool is as good as any in Vegas. Too bad they turned Bugsy's pool into the GO pool. That used to be a nice area. Still is if you don't mind paying to lounge there.

If you are looking for a good Vegas value but don't want to sacrifice having a good time, the Flamingo might be right for you.

They have no idea as to what a reservation is. They charge you for things that you don't get. And even if the promotion is good, they screw it up. The only people who are helpful are at the bell desk, and I only know that because I had to call them to change rooms 3 times. Don't go back unless you want to wait 3 hrs to check in, and then another 3 hours to check in after they screw up.

I am in the Flamingo hotel as I write this. We arrived shortly before noon today and were informed our rooms would not be ready until between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm. We decided to go eat in at the hotel buffet. Shortly after we began eating, some other wedding guests showed up. When it became obvious that we recognized each other, the lady seating guests insisted they be seated away from us. The other wedding guests ignored the lady and seated themselves next to our table.



The manager approached us and demanded that we pay the mandatory 18% gratuity for parties of 8 or more. We had nothing to do with the situation, and we were offended by the rude and unprofessional behavior of the manager. I was tempted to leave no tip at all, but decided that would be unfair to the lady who continued to provide attentive service throughout the ordeal. We left that lady more the 20%, but we were still threatened that security would be called on us. Very bizarre. The manager also threatened to cancelled the after wedding buffet for the wedding guests to be held tomorrow! At this point, I think the buffet is still on, but I'm not really sure.



I will never stay at the Flamingo again. Of course, that isn't much of a threat since I haven't been to Las Vegas in the last forty years, and I'll probably never return even if everything was perfect. :) But I will tell the truth to anyone who asks. My experience at the Flamingo has been awful. If you are planning a wedding, stay away from the Flamingo! (At least steer clear of the on-site catering services.)



I sincerely hope my daughter's wedding comes off well tommorow. She's a great kid, and deserves a great experience. She certainly deserves better treatment than the hotel has delivered so far.

Stayed at the Flamingo for two nights at the end of May 2008. We had checked out of another hotel and moved to the Flamingo which was our usual choice when staying in Vegas. Tried to check-in at 11:30 in the morning and was told the rooms were not ready yet but we could check our luggage and come back around 4:00pm. Since we had time to kill and a rental car we decided that we would go to Red Rock Canyon and also stop at Red Rock Casino which both were beautiful. We didn't get back to Flamingo until around 8:00pm and finally received our smoking room key as did the other couple that was with us. We were fortunate to have rooms right next to our friends. They went into their room and we went into ours. When we opened the room door we noticed that the room had not been cleaned at all from the previous tennents. We called the front desk and another room was assigned to us on a non-smoking floor (my girlfriend wanted a smoking room)but that was o.k.. The new assigned room had seen its better days long ago. Wallpaper peeling off the wall, carpeting that should of been replaced long ago, etc.. The casino had been painted since our last visit there 6 months ago but it was almost too bright of a pink color. The location of the Flamingo is excellent as is the pool area but other than that I don't know if I will ever stay at the Flamingo again.

My husband and I have stayed at the Flamingo several times and we love it! We have stayed other places, Monte Carlo and IP, but nothing compares to Flamingo. We all know the location is wonderful - you can't beat it. Also, the pool is the best around and also pretty easy access to the monorail. On our last visit we tipped the man checking us in and were asked if we would like to upgrade to a GO Room. We were on the 21st floor, right on the corner. A good view of Bellagio and Ceasar's Palace. The room was great. And the beds...even better! Only one problem, the air was not working properly. They checked it two different times and both times we were told there was nothing they could do. Finally my husband went to the front desk and did not leave until they gave us a different room. This was not an easy task! They ended up switching us to another GO Room and giving us a $30 voucher. And the view was even a little better. It was a bit of a hassel but it won't keep us from coming back. Although if we don't stay in a GO Room again, it won't even compare. Wireless internet, flat screen TV, flat screen TV in the bathroom mirror, clean, fresh, new feeling rooms. The Flamingo feels like home to us - I don't care to ever stay at another casino. With close access to some of the fun shows like the Dueling Piano at Harrahs, the $1 drinks at Casino Royale, and Margarittaville right there, you can't beat it. I'm trying to think of negatives to mention but nothing comes to mind. I did think $10 for a frozen drink at the pool was a little steep but the service was great!

Date Visited: 05/08 - Bad Visit

I was disappointed with the rooms. I paid for an upgrade that didn't look any better than a regular room with the exception of the plasma T.V. on the wall.

Walls are so thin I thought the guys partying in the next room at 2:00am was in here with me. There was no place to put towels near the shower, and the bathroom door was a non see thru glass sliding door (no privacy)

The Buffet was a really big disappointment also. Tried the breakfast and dinner there and decided to eat else-where the rest of the trip. I'm not a fussy eater, as long as its edible I'm okay, but the meal wasn't worth the $47.00 Had a great breakfast at the Paris Casino and a fantastic meal at the Rio World Buffet.

Flamingo Las Vegas

Date Visited: 04/08

Ok, I have to preface this evaluation by saying I have been a loyal Imperial Palace Customer for years and recently converted to the Harrahs properties when I found out that Imperial was bought by Harrahs so I figured I would get a jump on building my comps before the I.P was totally converted.



Got to the Flamingo on a Saturday night as was checked right in. Even though I asked for a King bed, the woman told me that all she had was 2 queens. (no biggie). The room was fairly clean, but is showing signs of its age. Cracks in the ceiling, shower head fell off, little stuff like that. It would be nice to have a coffee pot in the room, but again no biggie. Note to staff: Get rid of the pink elevators.

The safe in the room was broken but called and the guy came right up to fix it. Other than that no issues with the actual room.



Pool is great but even in April you wont find a seat after 11am so get up early and grab a chair. Oh yea and $6 for a bottle of water is BS.



Now for the slamming...

The casino is nice and big with all the games that anyone looks for. I wont comment on the location since we all know that it is the best. What i will say is that if you are a slot or video poker player, run for the hills because you wont see a win at all, ever, period. Not only did I not see a win for myself but I never saw anyone else hit or hear anyone else hit. I ended up giving up on the machines there and going elsewhere to play. Card and dice fall the same everywhere so I wont comment on that.



If you drink (this is everyone because) this includes water. You will have better luck getting a drink out in the desert. If I did find a drink server she would tell me that it wasnt her area or just not return with my drink order. Thanks (Note to staff: Free booze is what built that town it lifts your inhibitions). In the end I would buy my beers at the bar for a small fee of $6.



If you like sushi, there is a decent one in Flamingo but as far as small food just forget it. Even breakfast in the cafe was incredibly expensive. ($4/glass of OJ). I am not a big eater so the buffet is gluttony to me. Where is a place I can just get an egg sandwich for under $10.



I do have to plug a little place behind harrahs that we found that ended up having great gaming, great food and good microbrews for $1/pint. Its called Ellis Island. Its a little place but good food and fun and they take care of their gamblers.



Checkout was actually smooth the last morning, but I will say that the Harrahs Corp. is now worried about ol' Wall Street because after dropping 2 months of Mortgage, I got a wopping $42 comped off my room. Not 3 years ago they would just ripped up my hotel bill and said thankyou.



To sum up, the hotel is aging, but I still will not endorse tearing it down for some huge monstosity because its part of the strip's history. What it needs to do is cater to the masses of middle class America (something that is not being done on the new strip now). Why try to lure a person that will drop 10K in a weekend when you can lure 20 people that are willing to drop 2K in a weekend. Hello people...this is why I.P and Osheas are always packed and can survive down there. I will not be returning to this property, but I hope they open their eyes and not sell out to the rest of the newer properties that are competing for high end visitors. Good luck Flamingo and may the old strip rest in peace.

2/24/08-2/29/08

We stayed in the GO ROOM with a strip view. I wish my room was a little further down the hall so I could of see the Bellegio fountains from my bed, but I still could see them from the couch by the window. I booked my room online through the Flamingo's web site and asked for Go room, strip view, king, and smoking. I was paying the extra $$ for the strip view. The lady that was checking us in was a little snappy and wasn't in a good mood. They tried to give me a garden view, which I told her to read my information on my reservation and wanted a strip view. She pointed out that the small print at the bottom of the reservation that I printed out stated that all request are not guaranteed. I did get my strip view, but did not realize it was a non-smoking room until after I unpacked. I did smoke in the room, I felt bad for doing that, but didn't want to repack and deal with the front desk person again.

The GO ROOM is cool! I love the button that opens the drapes next to the bed! It is great to wake up and push a button and see the Bellegio as you wake up!! There was only a shower in the room, but the shower was large with massaging heads (even two that come straight out from the faucet). The TV in the bathroom is cool. The bed was sooooooo nice, that I was home less than 2 days before I had to buy the bed topper to make my bed at home feel the same as theirs.

The room service was not the best, I have had better. The food was bland for breakfast, but lunch was ok. Did not have dinner. Did enjoy Margaretta Ville!!! The nachos was great and if you order a bucket of beer it is buy 4 get 1 free. At $5.25 a beer it is worth it with the nachos!!!!! We did not eat much while we were there, we ate fast food.

The casinos were TIGHT the first 3 night we were there!!!!!!! We went to Paris, Caesars, Harrahs and Flamingo and lost almost $3000 {$1000 a day fast} We went to IP and had a blast, lost the money slowly, but enjoyed the dealatainers. They get up and sing in the middle of the casino. O'Sheas was fun and nice to us!!! won $1000 on the wheel-of-fortune.

It has been a few years since we were in Vegas and it seems like the 2 coin $1 machines are almost extinct. There are thousands of penny and nickle slots, that take multi coin. We use to love to play the Elvis and did not find a single one of them.

The trip was alright, but was disappointed in the comps from HET. The monopoly of the Harrahs properties made it feel like they don't care to win your business. We played a alot of hours and even on $5 machines {$10} a pull and played the credits we won back in and lost $1000"s and was comped $126. At the Casino Royale my husband played on a $100 and we were given $14 comp. I played the promotional $50 slot play and won the $100 he played on. I was on the promotional game for about 3 hours.



My tips are>> Go to www.billhere.com and get the buy on get one free monorail coupons.

Play and stay at the smaller casinos that appreciate your play.

Pulled this location on a blind purchase through Hotwire. Very interesting property. Upon entering the hallways to the room I could not escape the feeling I had entered a box of Good n' Plenty with the white walls accented with pink and dark brown. The room was clean and very retro. Something told me Hugh Hefner and a beehived Playmate from the Kennedy administration had worked out the decor. Very comfortable beds, tremendous shower and bath area with a flat screen in the mirror. A 50" LCD TV with DVD player and stereo was a tremendous perk. Basic casino with a great location on the center strip. You could do worse.

Location, Location, Location, is what this hotel offers along with value. Hey, when I go to Vegas I want a clean bed and shower and a good location. This is what I got at the Flamingo. The location can't be beat. It is right in the center of the strip. The casino is a smoke filled oven, but most casino's are in Vegas. There is nothing special about casino. It is not the Bellagio, but when I am in Vegas I am not in my room anyways. The pool area is nice, but I did not use it. The Jimmy buffet restaurant is nice place to stop by and have a drink. If you book this hotel, use the Harrahs.com website and go under the hot deals at the top of the page. This is how you get the best rate of any website by far. I check all of the them and nothing beat it. You can basically stay at this place for about $100/night including weekends. If you want a lavish room, don't stay here, this place is adequate to meet the average Vegas visitor. I would recommend it to anyone.

My sister and I stayed for a week to celebrate her 50th birthday. Upon arrival check-in was quick and courteous. The room was nice and clean. No complaints there. However, when we went down to the 24-hour restaurant to eat our waitress was extremely RUDE and MOUTHY! BTW, I think it's a prerequisite to have ORANGE DYED HAIR to work there!!! We were both tired and simply asked the waitress what the special was. She hissed at us and rudely semi told us. When we asked her to clarify it she SNAPPED and yelled at us. Everyone in the restaurant turned and looked at us (2am), which made her snap at them to mind their own business. We asked her why she's so irritable and she stated, "You don't know what I've been through, etc." She left us sitting at the table for over 10 minutes w/o even getting us something to drink. The family at the table next to us went to pay for their bill and she thought they "stiffed" her for a tip and she YELLED across the floor to them that they NEED to leave her a tip!!! We just got up and left at this point. We asked to speak with the manager...not available as he went home. We then went to the front desk manager...not there...we were told there was no HOTEL manager on the property. Excuse me??? The family that I referred to above also came to the front desk to file a complaint...no luck there!! The next morning we went to the front desk to speak to the manager as we wanted to file a complaint on old RED head. We were told that we had to go back to the restaurant to file the complaint. Needless to say, we did and the manager was very gracious and apologetic. We got our breakfast comped, and the day staff was young, vibrant and very attentive. Totally different than the night crew! We filled out a 2 page complaint as well as the other family did the same earlier that morning. BTW, they had just lost $10,000.00 in their casino that night and came in for dinner and got treated like that.....



The rest of our trip/stay at the Flamingo went rather smoothly as we avoided spending ANY money in their stores, restaurants, casino, etc....we used the valet parking, which was AWESOME! Best thing that came out of our stay was the VALET parking and the house band FRIENDS! They were great!



I/we will NEVER stay at the Flamingo again!!! Watch out for the RED HEADED beasts working in the 24-hour cafe'!!!

I just returned from my first stay at the Flamingo. I was impressed with my room. Very clean and adequate. I don't spend much time in the room, so all I care about is a clean room, decent bed, and shower and toilet that both work.



The pool and nature walk area were spectacular! Casino has gaming about average for the strip (poor). Easy walk to Casino Royale where the gaming is better and beers cheaper. Great location center strip. Monorail station makes it easy to get to the other properties if you don't like to walk.



I will stay there again. I would recommend the Flamingo to anyone looking for a nice room in a great location at reasonable rates.



I will stay at the Flamingo again.

We visited the Flamingo again from 8/25-8/29 and had a wonderful visit. Had a Go Room which was very nice. Very comfortable bed, good TV, TV in bathroom mirror was a great touch, loved the shower and the push button drapes next to the bed. All of the help was very accomodating, helpful and pleasant. We hope to be there again next year!

This hotel has seen better days. I stayed in a minium room - 4th floor. Although I've been a guest at this hotel many times over the years and love the location, it is very shabby. Returning after spending the day at the Wynn or Venetian is a bit depressing! The corridors, elevators, coffee shop, buffet are in much need of upgrading. It is still a good value but altogether seedy.

August 3-7, 2007

This was my third stay at this hotel and I found all services to be the same (acceptable) as they were 22 years ago with the exception of a few upgraded rooms. The hotel itself is

in a very good location and rather easy to access. There wasn’t a long wait in the

check-in or checkout lines, as they seem to be staffed appropriately. We only ate

breakfast in the hotel and it was satisfactory.

Some people in our party opted to stay in a standard (not upgraded) room, which was

considerably less money for the room. The upgraded rooms had three features, which my husband and I enjoyed and appreciated. 1-all bedding was washable----all hotels should switch to such bedding; 2-tv in the nice size bathroom; 3-flat screen TV. The decor in the upgraded rooms was bright and colorful, however the standard rooms definitely lacked color.

I would suggest that they add additional seating in the main lobby area as they once had, because others who are waiting for the check-in process to be completed by someone in their party might enjoy sitting. There was one small love seat and a chair available, which provided seating for 2-3 people.

The pool area was nice, but somewhat of a distance from the hotel due to the garden area one must walk through to actually get to the pools.

We selected this hotel because of its location, however we think we will stay at a different hotel when we return because the difference in cost for an upgraded room rather than a non upgraded room was entirely too much.

The Spa is FANTASTIC, and Betty Davis, Massage Therapist is EXCEPTIONAL. I make sure I visit her at least 2-3-4 times each time I visit Las Vegas, whether I stay at the Flamingo or not.

In closing I must share that on a scale of 1-5 with 5 as the Best, I would rate this hotel

as a 2.9.

Stayed here from 7/9/07-7/12/07. Upon arrival, was escorted to the check in desk by a security office who happened to be walking by. The Go-Luxury rooms were excellent. Had a room on the 28th floor with a nice view of Bellagio fountains. Every employee I came in contact with was friendly, from waitstaff, check in desk, bar tenders, slot attendants, dealers, etc. No problem during the entire stay. Would definately come back again.

Flamingo was nice, there were a few things we liked and some things we didn't like. First stayed here to be married on 7-7-7, not married at Flamingo but at The Little Chapel of Flowers. Stayed in a Go-room on the 17th floor very good view of Ceaser's and could also see the Belligio Fountains. Loved the big screen plasma at end of bed and also tv in mirror. Room was clean , being newly remodeled carpet was great shape, bed was very comfortable, bathroom nice size shower was great. Got a massage one day in a cabanna by the pool by April (was excellent) also tried health spa (steam rooms and jacuzzi was also great). No problems in casino, won some lost some. Everyone was as helpful and as friendly as can be. Pool was awesome, if you got there at 6:30-7:00am to reserve chairs for the day, if not too bad or you had to be lucky any later (of course it was 115 every day). Valet service for car was o.k. If you parked early in the evening, later garage was full and you had to park yourself (unless you were a diamond preferred card holder)I think if you are staying there, valet should always be available for guests.

Rooms had no refrigerator (staying a week, it would have been nice to have one. Could get one for a fee), or coffee maker, and internet service was $11.99 for 24 hours straight not use time. Rooms were the smallest I'd ever stayed in, in Vegas(1-Riveria, 1-Excalibur and 1 Venetian). First day we stayed we were to have bags delivered to room, after 1 hour we called down, car was parked by valet and bags were still in it ?????? Beer was $30.00 around pool for a bucket (comes to $120.00/case, u'd think I'm finance a baseball team). Over-all pleased with Flamingo, but I think I'll try another place. This place isn't anything special.

I read this rating page many times, before I made the decision to stay at the Flamingo. I feel like I was either mislead or maybe it’s just me!!!!!!



I am not going to save the best for last so here goes. The check in at the airport was awesome very fast, but when we made our reservation in March, for a Go Room, we requested 2 things, one to be near an elevator and most importantly not to be given a room above the 10th floor (my wife is terrified of elevators). We were given a room on the 16th floor, very nice view and near an elevator. We were told all rooms are on a first come basis????? Also, this was the first of many times we were told unless you are a VIP or Diamond Club member, we can not help you.



The Go Room was awesome, however, housekeeping was lacking and needed to be requested twice in 4 days.



One very interesting incident that I must mention. I can not describe how long the check in lines is at the hotel, you have to see that to believe it. On the second day, our room keys became demagnetized (my fault they touched my cell phone). I picked a good time in the late afternoon to try and get the keys reprogrammed. After standing in line for over an hour, I was called up to the desk by a guy and after telling him what I wanted he told me I was in the wrong line and he could not assist me. Trying to stay calm, I moved over to the so called correct line, after waiting another 20 minutes, guess who was available and called me to the counter (I wished I got his name, but I was to mad). The guy immediately began making excuses, but I told him he jerked me around, I know and he knows it, just reprogram the keys, which he did.



Check out was no problem, I did that around 6PM the evening before. Valet was great, very fast, but unless you are a VIP or Diamond member do not stay out late, the valet will be full as well as the self parking.



Casino was ok, tables prices were increased as the casino became more crowded, most dealers were friendly, but overall if smoke bothers you stays away. Keno closed at 11PM on 07/27 (Friday night)??????



Buffet was good but staff was very rude. Parties of 8 are charged 18% gratuity (in a buffet)???? We were with friends and not allowed to sit close by without paying the 18%, which we choose not to do on principle.



In summary, the Flamingo is far from kid friendly, for that matter not adult friendly unless you are a VIP or Diamond Club member. I would never stay at the Flamingo again, even if it were comped.

We visited this property for a second time in July of 2007. The first visit we had here was very poor. The old rooms are very outdated and our room had alot of grafitti in it. Once we heard of the new GO Rooms we decided to give the Flamingo another try. We had a GO Luxury room with a great view of the strip. Bed was very comfy, nice TV, great size bathroom with stand alone shower and TV in the Mirror. THE ONE THING I DISLIKED ABOUT THE ROOM WAS THE AIR CONDITIONING. It is on a sensor, so when being there in the middle of July with over 100 degree weather, when you got to your room it was just like being outside. I think the lowest our room got was to 76 degrees and that was about 4am in the morning. AWFUL!! All in all a nice room. Had pretty good luck in the casino, though we did much of our gambling over at Harrahs.

This was my first time staying here, and I enjoyed it very much. The room was basic but clean. The staff is very friendly. The slots were nice to me -- I hit a jackpot on my second night. The drink service is also excellent; your mouth will never run dry here. I got a good deal on the room and would not hesitate to stay here again if I get another one.

Great for the price. The pools closed early every night for special occasions, this was very inconvenient. Shower curtain was not very clean. Dealers very friendly. Newer rooms are impressive.

Very much looked forward to staying at the Flamingo. I received a great rate and received a low rate room. What a disappointment. Granted, it wasn't a GO room but I expected better. Room of a view of Bill's Gambling Hall parking garage. Room was on the 4th floor which from looking at it was in the old tower. Air conditioning unit kept turning on and off just staying on momentarily. The thing made so much racket, I just shut it off! Upon returning from dinner, the bathroom floor was flooded and I couldn't find the source. Too late at night and too tired to complain, I just through some towels on the floor and went to bed. Their parking garage was closed for maintenance and had to park to Bill's. Never notified anyone. Location is the only thing the Flamingo has going for them. Harrah's needs to update some of these older towers. I've been told the GO rooms are great but I don't think I would go back unless the room was comped.

Stayed for 2 nights - location is great. Pool is wonderful. Rooms are ok, larger than I expected (we had room in South tower overlooking pool area). We asked to be away from the strip noise. Hotel could use more food court options but the coffee/crepe/pastry set up was fine for one morning. I would come back just because the location was great and it was not too expensive.

My fourth visit to the Flamingo and most impressive (2/15 - 2/22). My room must have been recently

refurbished; wallpaper, love seat and chair appeared new, bathroom while a little on the small side was

very clean and also appeared to have been recently re-tiled. House keeping staff was very friendly, staffs

at Steakhouse 64, Venturo's and the Paradise Cafe were friendly and efficient and all delivered excellent

service. With larger crowds than usual due to the NBA Allstar game, the Flamingo staff somehow managed

to keep their facilities clean, waits at their restaurants to a minimum and consistently provided great

service with a smile.

I wouldn’t have believed it, but I considered the standard GVR (Green Valley Ranch) room and the Flamingo “GO” room tied as far as quality. It blew us away with the HDTV flat panel TV in the living room, the very nice sound system/DVD player, the comfy beds, the TV IMBEDDED in the mirror in the bathroom (never have seen this before), the climate controlled air, the electric drapes, internet access, and very modern rope lamps above the beds you can move around. The bathroom also has the strangest sink I've ever seen, a glass enclosed shower which includes water jets near the controls so you can get a back message, and a tub. Other than the high tech items, both rooms are impressive to us low rollers. I was not impressed with their casino, but since I had a car rental, I played at various other properties.

Check in was quick, however our room keys would not work. We returned to the front desk and was given a new set of keys,they didn't work either. Security then promptly let us into our room after verifying our ID.They called a lock smith to sort out our key problem they arrived promptly also, we waited no more than 10 mins.We were impressed with their service.

Our room was clean and comfotable and we had a nice view of the pool area.

Waiter service in the Tropical Breeze Cafe was excellent and the food was very nice.

We planned on losing some money on the slot machines and our desire to lose was exceeded beyond our wildest dreams Ha Ha Ha.The bar staff and waitress's in the casino were friendly and efficent.

We had a great visit and if we ever return to Las Vegas we will stay again at the Flamingo.

My husband and I stayed here for one night between staying at Caesars and Venetian and I was not happy at all with our room. I had a the new Go Deluxe room booked and when we got in it I saw it was a non smoking room and being honest I called the desk right away. They did say they were sorry but none of the newly done rooms were smoking. They said they would upgrade up to a mini suite for our trouble but they did not tell us it was the LAST room at the end of TWO long hallways. I counted 40 rooms in total we passed to get to our room. The only door further away from the elevator was the fire excape door. Even the bathroom in it was so small two people could not be in there together. Not much of a mini suite. One person said his pedimeter clocked his room at all but a 1/4 mile from the elevator and ours was past his. We would not stay there again Harrahs rooms are not great but at least a smoker can get a room near the elevator.

The Flamingo no longer possesses any "traits" that set it apart from a 3-star hotel. However, the fact that Flamingo charges approximately $500 for a room for the first Saturday in February is an absolute joke. Anyone that would pay that amount for THAT HOTEL would probably waste $50 on a Big Mac.

Went to Vegas on business and it was the only place on the Strip besides the dumps at about 100 a

night.

I checked in at the airport and upgraded to room for 40 bucks more.

Room was fine. Shower was fine. Temperature system was fine.

Great location. Great bar in the front of the place.

My question is: OK, now why is the Flamingo again as expensive as the really nice hotels?

This place is great for about 120 a night. I mean geez ... it's back up to 200 a night most nights.

Vegas ... your greed kills me. It wasn't so long ago all Vegas rooms were about 100 a night max on

weekdays except for the megapalaces. Now check lasvegas.com ... they are all 200 a night.

Horrible. I don't know how any kids right out of school can afford to visit Vegas anymore.

Prices are just too high.

Service was only let down by a rude manager after our bathroom was flooded on the first night due to a broken pipe. Recieved a full apology and was comped $75 the next day. Overall excellent hotel and I would definitly stay at the Flamingo again.

After 10 hour flight form the UK check in was instant and we were very happy with our 25th floor strip view room the check in clerk could not have been more helpful). We found the whole Flamingo experience to be great, from the pool to the bars ect. Service was always friendly and efficient. The only small gripe we have is with the minimum limits on table games especially craps, i mean what is the point of having $10.00 - $25.00 limits when these tables are sitting empty, yet across at the Barbary Coast the $5.00 limit tables are full, surely it would make sense to open a $5.00 limit table, any way this issue was solved easily cos we went & played at the Barbary Coast. Basically we loved it at the Flamingo and will always stay as we have done year after year. Thanks to all at the Flamingo for such a great stay.

Dealers were ok. Service was good. Room was what you would expect for not having to be there a whole lot. Would definately stay again for location purposes alone.

We stayed here because of the location and price. I felt the staff was courteous, trying to get us a room upgrade, however it didn't happen. The room was comfortable, clean and overlooked the pool area (#10015). Room service was prompt, maid service was fine. The only problem we had was that we checked in at noon, was told our upgraded room wasn't ready, in fact no other room was ready at the time. We were told to come back after 3pm. Again, our room was not ready and was told to return at 5pm. At 5pm we were told it should be another 45 minutes. we came back at 6pm, still no room available. We decided to go with another room that was ready because we were tired of waiting over 6 hours for a room. Other than that incident, the stay was fine and I would definately stay here again. One other note, the salon near the taxi pick up downstairs is excellent! The staff was great to work with, personable and cosmetics I bought there were affordable but looked better than department store brands.

My wife and I and two other couples stayed here for 5 nights in August. WE did get messed about with check in, we arived early'10.30AM.But they did our paperwork and told us we can get our room keys about 1PM. But when we went back they told us it would be about 5 or 6PM. Wrong!! I don't think so! I reqested the manager and after 10 minutes we had our rooms. 2 Strip view, 1 Pool view, very nice.

Apart from the pool hours being a bit poor (9AM/6PM)mid summer.The hotel and roomes were very good.We dont think much of the Time share people who annoy you all the time. We have stayed here 4 or 5 times before and will do so again

We come to Vegas about twice a year and usually stay at Ballys/Paris. Decided on two days at Ballys, then three at Flamingo this trip. We lasted about half a day at the Flamingo. Our room was adequate at best, about like a Comfort Inn, and not comparable to Ballys. We went to the Flamingo because of all the raves about the pools. The pools were fabulous,BUT we couldn't get near them ALL of the pools were so crowded, mainly with kids, that we stayed at the pool barely a half hour. The reservation agent was very helpful when I called and pleaded my case, so we switched back to Ballys for our final two days. We assumed Circus Circus and Excalibur were the kid hotels. You can add Flamingo to the list. The Casino was very good and the gardens were beautiful. I guess we are spoiled with Paris/Ballys/Rio. We probably won't come back to the Flamingo..

My sister and I visit Las Vegas every year and try a different hotel each time. This year we were there the last week of may. There was no contest, this was the worst stay we have ever had. Arrived in Vegas and did the airport checkin. Were given a room but they said it was not ready yet, would be about a hour. Got luggage and rental car and with traffic finally got there about 2 hours later. SURPRISE room was still not ready. About another hour they said, so went and ate at the buffet which was overpriced. Anyway back to desk, still no room ready but they could give us a smoking room which was not what we reserved or a room with 1 King bed. as it was for me and my sister I told them how stupid that was. Finally after demanding the manager and about another 1/2 hour of making a very loud scene the manager said she would upgrads us to a executive room at no extra cost. What a joke that was, wasn't much different than the standard room. Had a great view of the back of the Imperial palace and the top of a parking garage. From there it was strictly down hill. The rest of Vegas was great but the Flamingo totally ruined this trip. If you stay there, don't say you havent been warned

It started off bad and got worse. We reserved a room, or thought we did. A King non-smoking and they wanted to put us in a 2 queen smoking room. They save reservations not rooms. Room not cleaned when we arrived. The towels where used, garbage not emptied, used soap and crusty stuff on the bead spread. They came up and clean our room while we got last for 4 hours. Each day I would go down to the pool at 8:00amand put out the sigh “clean my room right away”. I would come back around 2:00pm to get out of the sun and my room still would be cleaned. When I left at 8:00am, they where a few rooms down from me. When I came back at 2:00pm, they where a few rooms past me. They where skipping over me. One day I put out my do not disturb sign which is read, I came back to a clean room. Not only can’t they read, but also they are colored blind. Also they (the cleaning staff) used my phone and make local calls from my phone to family members. They weren’t even smart enough the calls were easily traced. I complained to the Assistant Manager Ira and she made it all better. $75.00 comps to the room for food and 1 free night say the next time to go to as Vegas. I don’t even have to stay there; it can be at any of the Hotels in their little circle, like Caesars Palace.

The Flamingo has a lot of potential to be a really great place for your Vegas vacation, but there are two really big drawbacks. First they have a beautiful pool area, lushly landscaped and fabulous to look at. The thing is, if you don't get there by 8:30 or earlier you can't get a seat because it is so flipping crowded. We tried to go one afternoon and could not even get one seat let alone two. One day we were in the pool and someone just sat down on our chairs and started getting comfortable. They looked insulted when we said that we were using those chairs, and that those were our shoes, and clothes, and books, and suntan lotion, and drinks all sitting with the chairs. It was a horrible time if you are pool lovers like we are. We have stayed at other properties and the Palace across the street has the most gorgeous of pools, and we will be heading back there next year. The second thing is right at the base of the elevators they have let an entire group of solicitors set up. Every day that we walked by to try to go to the pool, or basically to anywhere because they are right at the base of the elevator, they jump in front of you and try to hawk their product. On the day we were leaving, a woman jumped in front of us because we had our suitcases and started getting in my face about how long were we going to be there and would we like free show tickets. It is so irritating. I am noticing it more and more at all the casinos, but when it is right in your face at the bottom of the elevator and you have no way to avoid it for 7 days, it gets really annoying. Otherwise, the Flamingo was good as far as a clean, but older room. The location is the best because you are right in the middle of the strip and can walk comfortably up or down to all the major properties. We didn't eat at the buffet, but did try Ventuno's Italian restaurant and it was quite nice. The Flamingo was a good value and I liked being able to check in at the airport. So, if you are into pools to relax by, find someplace else, if not, the Flamingo might be for you!

I stayed at the Flamingo the week of April 30. I was staying with my g/f, and there were 2 others in the group, so we had 2 rooms. Our room was on the 24th floor and had an awesome view of the Bellagio fountains (room #24024 in case anyone wants to know). I thought the rates for the rooms were reasonable for being right in the middle of the strip ($95/night average), plus we ended up 2 getting 2 meals and 3 nights comped, which was nice ;-) The casino was decent sized (they had craps tables, which is all that really mattered), and all the staff was very friendly and professional, even on the nights when we all had too much to drink and were being pretty obnoxious. Overall, I was pleased with my stay at the Flamingo and will definately think of it when I am planning future trips.

Hotelroom clean, standard. Service at the front desk bad, unprofessional. Beware of online reservations for this hotel via the Laughlin Visitors Bureau, because they will not be transferred to the Flamingo Laughlin! Casino noisy, Too many Slot Machines closed for repairing! Win?? - are you dreaming??

Best Buffet is at the Harrah's.

We only stay at the Flamingo now. We've been staying there now for 3 years. in the past we have stayed at the other "large" casino's and never received the attention that we get at the Flamingo. Comps are awsome. All of our stays are comped including dinners. Not big spenders, but they understand the importance of the little guy. That is what most of the casinos have forgotten about.

Room's don't have the "bling" that you get at other places, but they are clean and comfortable. It is only a room, so who really needs the "bling".

Casino is smaller than most, but it is comfortable and easy to get around. Drink service here is excellent. The entire staff is always willing to help. Not to many places do you get casino floor staff that ask how you are and want to know if they can get you anything.

I stayed here with a group of buddies for a bachelor party and was satisfied with the place. The hotel complex is actually huge, and it is a long walk from the elevator to your room, especially if you are in the north building. The room was clean and adequate, bland styling with a full wall window and nice view of the pool area. Casino was always crowded, and had a really high level of intensity at night, but I gambled next door at Barbary Coast, which has a good game of double deck blackjack for $5 or $10 minimums. O'Sheas is on the other side and good for their 18 hour happy hour and food court with Burger King & Subway open late. I highly recommend Flamingo for the top notch location (smack dab in the center of the strip) and very reasonable rates ($80 weekday). Didn't get to try the pool, but I hear it is one of the best.

Have stayed or played at the Flamingo over 9 times in the past 5 years. Three times my stay was comp'd due to the casino play by my family and me. We don't always win but we always enjoy the staff. The rooms are nice and spacious. The staff is great. I did have one bad stay with the shower only offering a trickle and it had to be the furthest point possible from our room to the elevators to the casino. My brother clocked it at 14 minutes from room to casino including wait for elevator at 4:30 PM on a Friday (probably a busy time).

As always, the location is great. The rooms are just okay with small bathrooms but clean.



The casino minimums are ridiculous!! They could have some 5 dollar tables on the off times but don't. I'd rather play craps at lower minimum tables with greater odds potential.



Harrah's appears to want to cater to the higher clientele with their Platinum and Diamond programs, so it's off to the other, more appreciative casinos.



The buffet was awful!!!! Salty everything, cold everything! What a disappointment! Comps are harder to come by too.

This hotel was the best priced hotel and beat competition hands down. We couldn't find any cheaper hotel that was as good as any other new hotel on the strip. Excellent value and location. Also very good because it has two entry points to the garage from what we learned, from the strip and behind the hotel. Hotels that were off the strip were a few bucks cheaper but didn't offer nearly the same location, sights, amenities, cleanliness, and fun. We'll do it again.

This was our second stay at the Flamingo this year. We loved it. Centrally located, with the Monorail available. The rooms were quiet, and the elevators were located in places that were convenient to the casino and restaurants. We found a used soap bar in a box the first night (yuck) but I explained this to a housekeeper, and was given more than enough soaps to keep me happy. I find that being nice is repaid in kindness. No big deal, the soap was tossed, and no one died.

The only thing is, I do not like children in Vegas! They are a hazard to people walking, babies scream from being forced into adult schedules. Really, this isn't Disney! Let grandma kept them. I have two kids. I understand. But I do like to go to adult places without tripping over little ones. Vegas tries to get families to visit, and some places have games and things for the kids to see. But if the adult has to remain with the kids 24/7, why bring them when you really wanted to gamble, and the kids aren't allowed in the casinos?

We went to Vegas for New Years. For the price and location, the Flamingo was great!! The rooms were clean. The service was excellent. The view from my room was watching the animals swimming in the lake below. I loved walking through the garden. Very beautiful. And the buffet had the best food for the money. Not disappointing at all!!!



I would definitely stay here again!!

This is the 3rd trip that my husband and I have made to Las Vegas. The first time, we stayed at Bally's. When we were in our room, I looked out our window and saw the pool area of the Flamingo. It was then that I decided I wanted to stay there for our next visit. The pool is HUGE and beautiful! It has several different areas with pools, waterfalls, and two jacuzzis (which was very relaxing after walking all day). The weather at this time is comfortable, 75-80 degrees but the pool water is cool so the jacuzzi worked out well. There are palm trees situated EVERYWHERE, and, of course, various types of birds including flamingos, of course. The room was clean, not too fancy but that's ok because we don't stay in it for that long anyway. Our windows were large (floor to top of drapes) and overlooked the pool (ask for it) which gave us a spectacular view including the mountains and sunsets. I read many reviews on this site re: upgrading the view but no one mentioned the charge of $20.00 extra/per night. If you are going to use the shuttle service from the airport, it's advantageous to give them 24 hr. advance notice b/4 you leave for your trip so that you can reserve a roundtrip shuttle. That's one less worry while you're on vacation. There are three things that I'd like to mention that I wasn't happy with even though it didn't really spoil anything too much. First of all, they don't have a clock-radio if you'd like to listen to music while you're getting ready to go out. They do offer the CD*Jukebox via the television but you have to sign up for it and it costs $12.00 for 2 hrs.! Ridiculous!! I also read reviews on this site that there is a safe in the room. Well, that's true but they also charge for them. It's $3.00/day which I wasn't happy about but needed to use. When I went to use it, though, it didn't work. Overall, it was a good stay and the fabulous pool makes up for the little inconveniences that I'll definitely work around next time we come back.

Even though we were staying at another hotel, Flamingo gave verbal okay for us to have a street front room (we booked the room three months in advance). On the night we checked in, I again reminded the front desk that we had reserved a street front room over looking lv blvd and the lady said "yes, I have it". When we got to our room, we found it facing the back side of the property. I called front desk immediately, and was told "that was all there was, but they would be very happy to change our room if we booked additional nights". This is so chicken shit-we had our entire family and it was a bummer. Never again for this property; and the slots were more than tight-they squeaked when you pulled the handle!!! There are so many other properties to try no need to be treated like this; and if you want grease and stuck arteries, try the breakfast buffet if you don't mind waiting 40 minute or so.

The Flamingo has to be one of the best values in LV. I have stayed there probably 4-5 times and usually play craps at $50 per hand (flat bet). For this, I get TONS of mailers. This week alone I got three. I suppose that I could move in there for free with all the promotional coupons. No free buffets or match plays but they definitely show their interest in me. The casino usually has $5 games unless it's busy weekend. The coffee shop is excellent, the buffet is so-so. The rooms are a nice place to stay and you can't beat the location. At the end of the day, any place that appreciates its customers like this gets moved up a notch or two.

I have stayed at the Flamingo twice now, and would not hesitate to stay there again. Great price, great location, and friendly service. The rooms are nice, easy on the eyes, and very clean. The pool area behind the hotel is beautiful. You feel like you are in a tropical paradise. There is plenty of choices when it comes to gambling. If you have a game or machine you like, odds are you will find it here.

My first trip to Vegas, so perhaps there are better accomodations available, but I was satisfied with my stay. Nothing fancy, that's okay. I do think they should have a coffee maker in the room, but realize they want you to order room service. I didn't because I felt the cost was excessive and I could wait until breakfast.

We stayed at the Flamingo for a long weekend beginning September 16th. We paid a steep $200 per night! We had a beautiful large room - one wall entirely windows that looked out over the strip! We were on the 26th floor. Just lovely! The pool areas are fantastic with plenty of chairs and shade.



Housekeeping was only okay. We ate at Margaretaville, the buffet and the cafe - all three were good food and service. We didn't have much luck in the casino but we don't gamble much.



All in all a very nice resort but a little expensive on the weekend. We would visit this resort again.

The Flamingo's slogan is "THE CENTER OF IT ALL ON THE CENTER STRIP" It is home to one of the best pools in town, but the pool is not as exclusive as: Wynn and Bellagio. Neverthelss, you are located in right in the middle of all the action. The rooms are rather large, and the room service is very fast. Housekeeping arrives early in the morning--so if you are staying in for the morning be sure to have your sign out. THE POOL: in order to get a chair you really have to get to the pool as it open (as it is at many Vegas Hotels). The Flamingo recently added more chairs but the lagoon fills up really fast.

Stayed at nicer and newer hotels on the strip for less money. Can't complain about the location or the view we had of the Bellagio water show because of the $20 trick at the airport check in. Your going to pay for location in Vegas everytime but chillin at Margaritaville will make up for it.

This was my first trip to Las Vegas and my husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Flamingo. Our room was nothing spectacular but it was very clean. The pools were very nice and contrary to what I had heard we had no trouble finding chairs. We arrived at 11:00 a.m. (well before the 3:00 p.m. check in time) and a room was ready for us. We didn't have a view of the strip but our room did overlook the pool and wildlife area. I would definitely stay here again.

My fiance and I stayed here for a week for our second visit together in vegas. He used the 20 dollar tip and it worked, we had an awesome view of the bellagio fountains as well. The view alone was definitely worth it. Our room was perfect for us and was very clean. We had a problem with the AC drippin the first day but it was taken care of immediately and the maid service was excellent. The only thing that we would have liked to have was a fridge. We looked into renting one, but they were 15 bucks a day to rent. Being there a week was rough not being able to put food in the fridge. The pool was nice, rather crowded. You have to get there early to get a good seat which isnt really a vacation to me. But overall the hotel was really great for the price.



The casino was okay... I didnt mind playing in here but since we play where we stay I played here most of the week. I thought the slots were kinda tight and I feel like I played them all. I had some luck here and there but nothing worth mentioning. I had better luck in other casinos. I didnt really play the table games that much but my fiance enjoyed playing poker.



We ate in margaritaville and really enjoyed the food and had a lot of fun. We ate in Conrads which was very nice and good choice for a good steak. Ventunos had good pizza and the buffet is pretty good for the price. In all I really enjoyed my week at the flamingo, location is excellent and it was a great time. I dont think I would stay here again just because I like to stay at different places... but its a great deal for the price!

Just returned from my yearly Las Vegas visit. I was there Aug 18, 19, 20, 21, 22. I found the Flamingo to be great. The rooms were clean, check in and checking out were fast. I love the location. I would have liked to ejoy the pool, but ran out of time due to all the shopping I did. I would stay there again for sure. The only thing I would say was bad is the size of the bathroom. The size made it very hard to two people trying to get ready at the same time. I really liked the fact it had a safe in the closet. I go to Vegas every year and will book to stay there next year also.

Stayed one night at the Flamingo. Checkin was quick and even though I misunderstood the checkout time and checked out an hour late, they did not apply any extra charges. Rooms are very nice for the good rates you can find if you watch for there deals. Location can't be beat. Pool is great. Although our favorite is the Bellagio, I could see where some might favor this one over that. Finding a lounge chair was not a problem, even though it was on a weekend. Have already booked the Flamingo for a couple of night in March. Will only change if I come across a super rate somewhere else on the strip before then.

Flamingo Las Vegas
      
Date Visited: 08/05 - Good Visit

We love the Flamingo! One of the best pools in town. We stay here every chance we get and we go once a year during the summer for a few days to enjoy the pool! Great location too! Easy access to the strip, whether you're going to Bellagio to see the water show or Ceasars or Aladdin for some shopping without even having to take your car or taxi... and the monorail always an option too! I wish I got lucky each time with our room. It's a hit or miss, sometimes we get a view of the strip or a view of the back of the hotel pool.

Flamingo Las Vegas
            
Date Visited: 07/05 - Good Visit

Just returned from an eight day visit, 7/2 to 7/10, to the Flamingo. We had a great time. I don't understand all the negative comments on this site. Sure, it's a bit smoky, but name a place in Vegas that ain't. My wife, who is hypersensitive to smoke, had no problems in either the casino or our room. As a cigar smoker, I LOVE VEGAS!



Room: We were very happy with the check-in at the airport. It was a snap. Gabrielle was polite and extremely helpful in getting us a king/NS room at noon. The room was nice and comfortable. I think it had been remodeled recently with a comfy bed, new furniture and good carpeting. Maid service was exceptional. When we were there in 2002, we had trouble getting enough fresh towels and linens. This time, no problems. Our room, 8071, was located near the casino elevator and ice machines, a great location, and overlooked the pool area. The rest of our group, in 23130 and 23129, had similar experiences, but better views.



Food: There are a lot of choices at the Flamingo. We ate at Tropical Breeze Cafe, formerly Lindy's, four times. The quality of the food and quantity were good. My wife especially liked the New York Steak sandwich with blue cheese. Pink Ginger was great, especially the Mongolian Beef and the Jimmy Buffett restaurant seemed fun. For cheaper meals, one only had to walk a few steps to O'Sheas, which is run by the Flamingo. A food court there contains Subway, BK, Haagen Daz, etc. In 2002, I had trouble finding a good cup of joe in the mornings. Four new coffee bars and shops have solved that problem. But the $1.50 big cup of coffee at BK is still a better deal.



Entertainment: One of the best pool areas in Vegas. Most of our group loved it. I spent no time at the pool as I can lay out in the sun at home. The spa was nice, according to my wife, though it was a little pricey. The entertainment choices were varied and I heard great comments from other guests about both George Wallace and the Second City group. Didn't talk to anyone who saw Gladys Knight.



Casino: the casino was, well ......tight. But this goes for all Strip casinos, I believe. The casino area was attractive and well maintained and drink service was OK. While playing a $1 Cigar slot machine, I got the only proposition of my stay from a weekend warrior hooker from California. I got a kick out of this, as this doesn't happen very often in rural Alabama. :) The first time I had ever been propositioned, and I had to let her down easy. She complained that there were too many married couples around. In a similar vein, there were none of the Mexicans handing out porno literature in front of the Flamingo. Kudos to Caesars for stopping this annoying practice. Although ordering strippers to your hotel room does sound interesting. :) While the casino is tight, it is still a fun place to play, and there are lots of other choices around, since you are only a few steps away from the IP, Barbary Coast, Caesars, Ballys/Paris and Bellagio. There is something in this grouping for every income level.



I marked this location as non-family friendly because I don't like children in casinos, and this place was chock-full of them at times. Parents, don't bring your kids to Vegas, and if you do, take them to the room at a decent hour. Kids being pushed in strollers at 2 am on the Strip and hitting my ankles at 3 am in the casino caused me to wonder about their parenting skills.



Overall impressions: The Flamingo is a wonderful place to stay for the price. We had rates of $60 weekday/$100 weekend. For the location and the quality of the room, unbeatable. A good variety of restaurants and entertainment options round out an overall excellent package. Talked to a casino host about the impending takeover by Harrah's. He seemed hopeful, as Harrah's had talked about pumping in money to spruce up the Flamingo. I just hope thay don't screw up a good thing, as there are very few mid-priced rooms left on the center Strip. I would recommend, without hesitation, the Flamingo as a wonderful place to stay in the middle of the action of the Las Vegas Strip.

I couldn't have asked for more. There were 3 couples in our group that traveled from AL July 2-9. We had booked the hotel months in advance (7 1/2 months to be exact). As a matter of fact my only complaint came the night we checked in. I had requested a king room, but there were only queen rooms left. We had anticipated this however, because it was so late (midnight), as well as a holiday weekend. I know that this is common in most hotels as well...though I would like to see it changed! The person at the deck could not have been nicer or more accommodating. To make up for the smaller bed they gave us an incredible view overlooking Caesars Palace along with the assurance to be moved to a king room the next day. All of this was handled so easily the following day. And we ended up in a newly remodeled king room still overlooking Caesars - only now from the 23rd floor rather than the 8th, which made it even more spectacular! Cudos to the front desk for being so pleasant and helpful.



The amenities in the room were great. Excellent maid service, beautiful freshly tiled and large bathroom, comfortable bed, a couch and chairs next to the floor to ceiling windows with THAT VIEW. My husband and I loved to come back to the room late in the afternoon or at the end of a long day, throw open the drapes and just stare! It still boggles the mind that we paid $65 a night for that ($100 on Fri & Sat).



No other property on the Strip can offer what the Flamingo does for the money! Good choices in food, good gambling, an incredible pool area, and above all LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!! We could pay an extra $125 per night to stay across the street. But the price and accessibility of the Flamingo will have me checking on that particular property before any other each time I go. I have stayed at the MGM Grand and just finished my second stay at the Flamingo. For those traveling on a budget but still want the full Las Vegas experience, I couldn't recommend another hotel more. Having the monorail 5 minutes from the front desk is simply an additional perk. For those of you contemplating where to stay at an outstanding rate, surf some of the travel websites in advance and lock in a superb rate right here. I look forward to doing it all over again in a few years.
