“GO Deluxe room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Because of reviews I had read, we upgraded to the Go Deluxe from the Fab. It was fine for the rate. If you look too closely you can see shoddy work, but it was clean and roomy and served its purpose well. We rarely heard others. (we were on the 22nd floor facing away from the strip) The beds were comfy and housekeeping was great. We ordered room service one morning and after an hour and 10 minutes, called to check on it to find out they were running behind (I think they forgot us, really) so we canceled. Eh, it happens. Good thing there are plenty of food options on site. We skipped the pool after hearing awful music blaring and seeing massive crowds but be sure to swing by and see the lovely flamingos and exotic birds hanging out around the corner. We had no line at check in (Saturday @ 6:00pm) but saw many a looong line in passing throughout our stay so beware of that. Such a great central strip location, over all a good experience.

I was so excited to return to the Flamingo. I have been coming here since my 21st B-Day and was returning for my 33rd. Lets start with the front desk. We booked a room with a strip view, they tried to put me in a room with a view of the dilapidated hotel next door and CONSTRUCTION! When I explained that I had reserved and PREPAID for a room with a strip view I was rudely told that they had no rooms with a strip view, but offered one with a garden view, no discount, nothing. After letting them know how unhappy I was about this I was offered a whopping $10 credit towards the resort fee. At that point I just wanted to get to my room so I accepted. The hotel is dirty. The elevator doors that lead up to the rooms all look like they have had about 50 snot rockets blown all over them. The carpet in the hallways is coming up, dirty, and bumpy. There was a empty fire extinguisher case in the hallway outside of my room (safety first!). Now onto the room itself. At first look it seemed nice. I like the retro look of the lamps and the nice lounger by the window. The view was decent, we could see the flamingos and the coy pond. But upon further inspection the room was FILTHY. The bathroom had mold and rust spots all over the place. The ceiling above the tub was covered in disgusting stains and looked like it could fall down on me at any second. There were piles of dirt and grime in all of the corners, and mold all over the grout. There was also a blood like mystery stain by the vent over the bed. All and all I'm very disappointed both in the service (rude!!!) and cleanliness of this hotel. When we go back in a few months I will avoid this place like the plague. It's really sad that such a great old hotel has gone so far downhill.

We stayed at the Flamingo for 4 days in early April. We got to the hotel around 9 p.m. on Monday and the check-in line was crazy long. I had read online that there are Express check-in/check-out kiosks so my husband got in line and I went to check on the Kiosks. I found a row of Computers that were empty so I tried one. It let me get pretty far into a self check-in then said there were none of the type of rooms we had reserved. There was a young gentleman behind the counter and when I got his attention he came to help.

I have read on here that if you book through a third party they won't upgrade you.....we did not have that problem. Even though we booked through Travelocity, Kenneth (the nice young man behind the counter) gave us an upgrade to an awesome suite! No charge!!

We were done with check-in in about 10 minutes. So the Express Check-in kiosks were the way to go.

Our room was on a high floor. It was a GO suite. Tons of space, the bed was super comfy. Granite counters and a coffee maker and a fridge. We had a great view of the Fountains at Bellagio. A sofa sat in front of floor to ceiling windows to watch the fountains. The bathroom was awesome. Separate shower and tub...lot of granite (marble?). The bathroom mirror had a TV in it! There were 3 TV in our suite! lol

We were on a pet friendly floor but it was clean and there was no pet smell. The elevators were clean and fast.

Everything was really clean. Housekeeping came every day and did a fine job. We tipped her every day.....

The casino is small but clean. Didn't win, but did't care! The pizza slices at The Pizza Joint are huge....about 1/4 of a large pizza. Definitely enough for 2 people to share. There is a beer store by the front door. Much cheaper to go here and buy beer than to get it at a bar.

The pool looked lovely even thought it was too cold to enjoy it while we were there. And as always....the flamingos in the garden habitat were the best! I love going down to watch them.

Finally....Thank you Kenneth for upgrading us to that awesome room.

We stayed in Las Vegas in February 2013, for a week. We chose the Flamingo based on the rates and location. Staying at the center of the strip of $30 a night was hard to pass up, expecially when there were 6 of us travelling. We stayed in the renovated FAB rooms in the spa tower, and they were nice. The fan in one of the rooms was very noisy, we could not leave it on. It sounded like we were staying at the airport. The bathrooms are in need of a renovation but overall we clean and worked well enough for us. The walls are quite thin and you can hear people in the hallways and the other rooms, but I find that happens in many hotels. Check in was a breeze, we showed up right at 4, but we did notice that as we were headed back to the casino aroud 4:30 the line up was incredibly long. The casion is very smoky and older, in need of some updating but we just gambled at other casinos instead of dwelling on it. The location can't be beat though. Center strip! When we booked we were told the pools would be open. As we were travelling from -40 weather this option was very appealing. However when we arrived we were tod that none of the pools at the flamingo were open and we would have to go to Paris to use their pool. This was not a deal breaker, but it would have been nice to have been given the correct informaion the first time. I probably wouldn't stay here again, we spent most of our time at the north end of the strip so we would stay closer next time. If you can get a good deal then stay but I wouldn't pay regular price for this one.

I needed to stay in Las Vegas in December for a few days. This was a part of a package deal from my airline. I did some research and it seemed like a good value. to be completely honest I was not impressed right at first. It was a long walk in from the tower parking and like many of the Strip Hotels all of the glamour was out in front. it was a bit dirty and I the line for check in was pretty long. From that point however things got much better. I was upgraded to a very nice room on the highest floor with a great view at no extra cost. the room was very nice, very new, comfortable and quiet. a bit if a hike but what else can you expect? I'd stay here again. I like not having any hidden fees at check out.

From the front, it's all business, or in this case, is normal. Old school Las Vegas hotel, one of the few left. Working hotel, working casino, nothing extravagant, but nice. Some upgrades in the main levels, but you know by looking at it what it is. We booked a GO luxury room with view. Great room! Great view of the fountains at the Bellagio, lots of space, comfy room, modern, sheak, very party-esque! You know, the back of the mullet. The staff that we did need was helpful and attentive, but they weren't needed much. Small casino, small shopping area, nice habitat and pool area and great bar at the Cut Steakhouse that had 2 for 1 Martinis durning the day! Ask or Linda, she was awesome! All in all, the flamingo is what it is, less expensive, less flare, less wow factor, but great location! We would stay there again!

I changed hotels this trip based on comps. Meaning where I could go for free or insanely reduced price. So with that said, the cost was right! Let me start with the likes. I liked the pool, and I won bank in the casino. On to the dislikes. The hotel is horrible to navigate to the room. There is 2 banks of elevators for the entire facility. Albeit, they are fast and efficient, we hardly every waited for a elevator. The rooms are average, they were clean, and nicely decorated. I hated the pillows, they were small, but I'm a big pillow fan and I like to squish and hug them to mold to my head and body, so it was a negative in my book. I couldn't get on the Internet, but I'm a complete computer moron. I have an iPad and it was something in my browser. The hospitality people walked me through the process and boom, I had Internet! The biggest dislike that will keep me from coming back was the entire check in process. If your not a player card member (thank God I am) you stood in this horrific line, the process was OMG slow, and I had to pay $30 together my hotel key early! WTH! I wasn't lugging my luggage for 5 hours, restanding in a line to get my room key at 4pm ect. Ain't happening! This will keep me from ever staying there again!
