“Internet fee high”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

The hotel was older but the rooms were updated. The bathrooms small. A beautiful pool but closed for the winter. The charge for Internet was very high and even if you got the service - I Pad and phone wouldn't connect in the meeting room or dining room and often not in our room. AT&T on the cell phone had less than one bar. This needs to be addressed for the business men and women and for people staying in touch with family. Room was clean but public bathroom dirty by end of conference. Overall, I would stay here again if they drop the Internet fee and promise better Internet service.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Got a good price on a prepaid website. The room on the second floor was very quiet. A bit disconcerting was the hair on the bedspread that wasn't ours. Room was otherwise clean. Bed was comfortable but the pillows were flat and need replacing. I'm amazed that the choice of TV channels was so poor in this era of cable. The hotel is dated but functions well. We've stayed here a few of times in the last 10 years and the hotel seems in better shape than I recall. Lots of breakfast choices within a couple of blocks. I'd definitely recommend staying here if the price is right and you don't plan on spending much time watching TV.

This is a nice hotel, very dated but clean and comfortable. Beware first floor rooms as they are right by the entry door so you hear guests coming in and out. Also beware that they charge for internet access which is absolutely ridiculous. On the positive side, they do provide a guest pass for a fitness center right next door. On the down side, this is a public fitness center and VERY busy.

Room Tip: If you want a first floor room, ask to see it first as some are right next to entry doors making it...

This place I'm sure was great in the 60's,70's, and maybe even the early 80's. Oh, but it's really time to get up too 2013 Flamingo. I only wish the rooms were priced according to the time era and decoration.
When I drove up to this place it reminded me of an old Las Vegas hotel and was a far cry from resort or spa. Then when I walked into the lobby it smelled like bad air freshener that was trying to cover up the stench of old cig smoke.
The hallway to our SUITE also had a moldy water smell. I had to laugh at what they call a suite, again I'm sure the suite was great way back when...but the furniture and carpet needs to be replaced asap.
I often visit the beautiful Napa/Sonoma wine country and stay in Santa Rosa though in the future I won't be stay at this place again.
Don't be fooled by the pictures.

Our stay at the formerly lovely Flamingo was a disappointment. While they are renovating one wing which looked well past due, the part we stayed in had dirty carpets, stained linens, moldy grout, and ill-fitting doors which actually came open once while we were out! Fortunately we left the tv on so it probably looked like we were just airing the place out and nothing got taken. The cord on the hairdryer was so tangled and filthy I didn't want to use it. The parking areas in back are extremely poorly lit so you feel quite unsafe leaving your car parked there, or even walking out after dark.

When I asked to take my continental breakfast to our room, I was informed I could not take the silverware or plate since I might not return them! How nice to treat your guests like criminals!! Perhaps this is indicative of the clientele they are now attracting? Too bad - it used to be my favorite place but we will stay no more.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a renovated room.

Hi to all,

I made a trip in Santa Rosa during a few days in march 2012. I stay in the Flamingo hotel during 10 days and it was awesome ! The flamingo's crew is very kind and at your service for all you desire. The room, food and also the sports equipments are at a high level.

We stayed two years ago and found the room adequate but dated and with a filthy stained carpet. We stayed for Christmas Eve night and again found the room comfortable but with stained carpets in the room and hall. Doesn't Santa Rosa have carpet cleaners? The staff was very nice. I'm a little leery about parking in the dark, back area but parked under a light. We probably would stay again because it's so convenient but $140 for a quick sleep is a bit much.

Room Tip: Ask for an updated room but expect to pay more!
