“FINTASTIC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Spent last weekend at the Flamingo with many other Parrotheads for the Jimmy Buffett Concert. Check in was Great, less than 5 minutes. Our Fab Deluxe Room was ready at 2:00 when we arrived, no extra charge, Larry was Great! The room offered a Garden view in the Spa Tower and was outstanding, no complants. The location is great and offers many options. The Pool area was transformed into the Buffett Pre Party, very nice and Great People. The Slots and Tables were good and the Staff was Great! This was my 3rd stay at the Flamingo this year and we will be back.

Room Tip: Join the Total Rewards Club(no charge) prior to your visit. This will allow you a quicker Check In.

It is hard to rate this hotel and this is a hard review to write. You might get a little more than you pay for at the Flamingo, which is a good thing, but I'm not sure that is enough of a reason to choose the Flamingo. We have stayed at the Flamingo 4 times or so total, always choosing it because of it's low price, but after this time, I don't think we will be back. The hotel really only has three good attributes, the fact that you can get a room for less than $70/nt, the great center strip location, and a nice pool area. The small pool was open and was a swimable temperature in mid March, though it was very cloudy and uninviting. I think the small pool stays open all year, and the main pool opened 3/16 this year.

Then there is the not so good, I won't say bad, but not so good.

Here goes. We booked a mini suite, which was large, the view looking out the window was of Ballys, with the airport off to the left and Belagio off to the right (rm 18040 i believe). It was a nice size room for $130 a night. The rooms are very basic, they are going for a retro look, which they somewhat pull off, but it feels cheap. They advertise no resort fees, but internet costs $13.99 per day and it only works on one computer in your room at that price. It is true that the rooms do have more than their fair share of upkeep issues. For example the bedside light missing a knob, heat that doesn't work, weather stripping hanging down from the window, and every TV having wires and a box hanging out from behind it like they didn't finish installing them. It's weird that they wouldn't tuck the wires behind the TV, we saw 4 rooms while we where there, and you can see it in my pictures, everyone had wires hanging down. The bed was comfortable, separate tub and shower was nice, though the shower knob was broken a little. Another sort of problem, was that the safe was locked when we got in the room. I am making the room sound much worse than it is, and should mentioned that we changed rooms while we were there and the problems listed above were a combination of the two rooms.

That's it for the objective review, Here's story....We are not complaining people and everything above would have been just fine with us, but we came back to the room on our second night and found a very undesirable bug crawling on the desk. We called the front desk, and they advised us to call the next day. The next day we spoke the front desk manager Alex who was very nice. He upgraded us to the Napolean Suite, which was the "best room" in the hotel. It was the same as the mini suite except it had a second bath, larger foyer, and a wall separating the sitting room from the bedroom (good for families). He also gave us a $50 food and beverage credit. We weren't really happy, but we were ok with that. Problems continued when they didn't enter the room change in their computer. That night we came back from a night out very late, and just wanted to go to bed, but when we went up to our room, our key would not work. So we went down to the front desk to get new keys, but they told us that that wasn't our room, and that it was registered to someone else. After spending a half hour talking to the front desk, a manager went up to the room with us to let us in and see if it was our room. We were not pleased with their attitude during this process. It didn't end there, the next day the made came in our room on us and said we were not supposed to be there, we were supposed to be checked out. So we went back to the front desk to get that straight. Then we spent the whole day worrying that the hotel staff was going to go into our room and pack up our stuff because we weren't supposed to be in the room (that probably could never happen, but we worry). Two more times in the next day and a half we came back to our room to find that our keys did not work. It was all just a big hassle. Alex said for the additional trouble he would take of our internet charges, but when we checked out they were on our bill. The front desk would not take them off at check out. We are awaiting an email response from him as to whether he will be able to correct that.

Room Tip: The Napolean Suite was not worth the additional money. The mini suite is a good choice.

Just had a ladies trip to Vegas and we all stayed at the Flamingo. We loved the location and if you get an updated room, they have nice bathroom and fun decor ( ask for the Flamingo Go rooms not the fab Luxury). We enjoyed the pool and casino. We had a wonderful breakfast at Tropical Breeze Cafe, great hamburgers at Margaretville and the worst Nacho we have ever had at Carlos'n Charlie’s, they were worse than something you would get at 7-11 convenience stores. The food and the service were awful at Carlos'n Charlie’s but the rest of the vacation at the Flamingo was great.

Room Tip: Ask for the Flamingo Go room. They have tubs, walk in showers, TV in the mirror and are quite stylis...

We had planned on meeting 10 friends and family at the Flamingo for our destination wedding. Due to major airline issues, we arrived Tuesday afternoon instead of Monday morning. We were tired, sore, and the airlines had lost our luggage, so we were long overdue a shower and clothing change.

We arrived at the Flamingo and had essentially no line to check in and were greeted immediately at the front desk. I had called the evening before to tell them that I was stuck in an airport and requested that they not cancel my reservation. I explained that I would be flying home on Saturday, and not on Friday as I had originally planned. The woman who checked us in listened to our horror story and stepped aside to call her manager. I already had out my passport with a $20 bill. They upgraded us to a Go Room although they told us that they couldn't keep us in it for Friday night. We understood and were extremely appreciative of the upgrade. After we signed and got our keys, I handed her the money, but she told me to keep it and said that "the management wants to make your trip more enjoyable after what you've been through". We thought it was a pretty nice touch. She gave our information to the bell desk and we headed up the lobby towers. So easy to get to! That's when we started the 30 hour wait for our luggage.....

So our Go room (25046) was amazing. Some of the carpeting looked slightly worn, but nothing awful. Our view of the Bellagio fountains was incredible! The desk with the ethernet cable was a little small, so don't plan on putting more than a laptop and maybe one phone there to charge. There was a nice little fridge under the desk where we stored drinks. Note: Turn fridge on if you use it. I didn't realize that it was turned off and was a little surprised that my beer was warm later.

The room had a little chaise lounge chair by the window that was actually comfy and fun to sit on while chatting with friends and looking out at our view of the strip. The bed was quite comfy, clean, and hot lots of pillows. We had a room with 2 queens but that was perfect for us. There was not a whole lot of drawer space, although the closet was spacious and had a good amount of hangers. The little drawers in the night stand were so slim they could not really hold any clothing. There was a nice shelf in the closet to put shoes and folded pants on. The room had a large HD DT and a pretty good assortment of channels. I spent one night sick in the room watching it. Plus, there is some sort of gaming system, not sure what it is.

The bathroom was essentially spotlessly clean, and I got up close and personal with the toilet after contracting some kind of GI illness on the trip into Vegas. The shower was a little complicated to figure out, but when we did we liked the way the 2 little side water spigets hit just the right spot on your back. There is a seperate stand up shower and a full bath tub, which looked perfectly clean and big enough to soak in, although we did not use the tub. One thing my husband noted was that if you did not close the sliding bathroom door just right, it would slide open. Created some embarrasement when a friend was in seeing our room! The only thing that I noted that was even remotely dirty was the little pink lightbulb in the bathroom ceiling that shines on the mirrors (By the way, there is a TV in the bathroom in the mirror. I hope the remote was sanitized. I thought it was a cute touch, but I don't normally watch any major networks while using the bathroom, so I didn't use it). That little pink lightbulb casing appeared either filthy or scratched up. I did not reach up and inspect it to verify, it either needs to be wiped down or painted.

We spent all day Wednesday and Thursday soaking by the pool. The music wasn't nearly as obnoxious as other reviews led me to believe. All of us are in the 30-40 age group, and that was essentially the majority of who we saw at the pool. Certain security officers let people bring in coffee and snacks, while others would not. We rented a cabana for our group at 230$ for Wednesday and 300$ for Thursday. Divided amongst 10 people it was 53$ for both days, and we felt it was well worth it. They gave us 2 cushioned pool chairs, plus a nearby day bed. There was a big TV in the cabana (Which we never even turned on). Bar service and food service was attentive. The cabana rental came with 2 bar drinks, and after tasting those we all went back for more. The pink plastic Flamingo cup was the best deal, it is almost 24 ounces and one of the bar tenders refilled it for me for free. The drinks were more expensive than if we were allowed to fill up a cooler on our own, but we didn't have to go far, and we really did not find it to be that bad of a deal. The water in the pool was a little big chilly, but that didn't stop us. I've stayed in 6 different Vegas hotels, and I believe that Flamingo has the best and prettiest pool.

The bell desk was awesome about helping try to retrieve our luggage, which finally came Wednesday afternoon. To make a long story short, the agency we booked with flew us home on Saturday but had us change hotels on Friday afternoon. Not a big deal after all we had been through, they sent a van to pick us and our luggage up to move us to Imperial Palace.

We ate at Carlos and Charlies which was good and nice to sit outside in the sun. We also got pizza from the little place by the exit to the gardens and Habitat towers. A pretty good deal for a piece of pizza and a soda, 5.99$. I picked up coffee from the food court every morning.

All in all, I found the location to be perfect and the service was more than satisfactory. For what we paid, we couldn't expect any more. Flamingo may not be the place for you if you're expecting over the top luxury and pampering, but if you're looking for a reasonable deal at a great location, it's a lot of fun and a great price.

We stayed at this hotel as a part of our Vegas trip! The rooms are of good quality and amneties are good. This place is situated in the middle of the strip. Parking facilities are plenty.

The room was of excellent quality. Within the hotel there's a flamingo garden for those who are interested. We had a buffet here which served food from various cuisines. We were impressed by the amount of veg offerings they had.

Overall, I would recommend this place.

The Flamingo is very cheap and we can see why. It is clean etc but the rooms are old, no windows for fresh air, the bathrooms are small, nothing special about this place compared to the other bigger hotels.

In our hallway leading to our room, there was a food tray left outside a room for 2 days! one of the drinks had been spilt onto the wall and it was still there after 2 days.

to check in there was a line up so it took us approx 30mins just to check in!

I wasn't sure what to expect due to the wide range of reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. We arrived around 1:30 pm and were checked in but had to wait until 4 pm to pick up keys since the rooms were not ready. Left the luggage at the Bell Desk. Our room was a GO deluxe with a view on the 15th floor. It commanded a wonderful view across from Caesars palace and their fountains. We could also see the Bellagio fountains although not hear the music. The bell desk promptly brought our luggage to the room (within 15 minutes from calling). The room itself was very clean, spacious, and had a modern theme. We have stayed at a few hotels in Vegas and this is the only one that had a coffee maker and small refrigerator in room. The bathroom door was a frosted glass sliding door and one half of another wall in the bathroom was frosted glass. There was a medium sized shower stall.

The next day we had a problem with the safe and were told that it would be awhile before maintenance could come up but he arrived 10 minutes later, had the safe open quickly and explained the problem. Housekeeping was exceptional (I always leave a tip each day).

The pool was very nice but only one pool was open during the week so it was crowded by 10am.

We had a very nice stay and would definitely stay again.
