Great staff, clean room, and overall a fun time! It's really an entertainment complex than just a hotel, there's bars and night clubs on the property, a performance space, and they have DJs playing music poolside on the weekends where a lot of the locals come to dance.

The Social Area hosted by the Tampa Leather Club was awesome on Friday & Sat. nights and the water maze on Sat. and dunk tank on Sun were a lot of fun.

A great concept but needs to have more detail to become successful. On July 4, my partner and I decided to spend the weekend at the hotel. We arrived early and the reception told us we can enjoy the pool. Actually, anyone can enjoy the pool without being a guest or paying a day pass - this is a plus.... More

Fun place, Sunday T-dances are always a good time! Food is so-so, nothing great, rooms are a bit sketchy! They are really dated and dirty. Fun place to go for drinks/dancing but I would stay someplace else. Watch your tab/bill though...we are over charged more often than not. They need to get rid of the gross carpet, old TVs and...

I have to say visiting the flamingo was a awsome time. Larry was the nicest, funnest bartender I have ever seen. He made sure everyone was taken care of at all times. Bartenders like that are hard to come by. He is a keeper. I will be back.
