This was the first, and last time I would stay at the Flamingo. We decided to give this hotel a try, because they were offering significantly discounted room rates, and more importantly, were advertising having recently renovated many of the rooms. Sadly, it appears that renovations are far from complete.
The first night we arrived late (about 01:00), after having called ahead and reported that we would be checking in late. Upon checking in, we were informed that there were no more non-smoking rooms, but if we came down to the lobby the following morning, we could request a move to a non-smoking room. Well, as someone who has never smoked, this was absolutely disgusting. The room was just putrid. Everything had a strong smell of smoke and whenever the ventilation system would kick in, it would simply circulate the smell. It was so bad that my girlfriend and I each woke up numerous times throughout the night and found ourselves short of breath. As such, we awoke early, despite still being exhausted, and returned to the front desk to request a room change, which (it seemed to me) we were begrudgingly provided.
The new, non-smoking room was clean enough, with newly installed floor to replace the carpet, but the furniture was still older. Upon getting into this room about 11am, we called the front desk to request NO housekeeping for the duration of our stay, because our room did not have a "do not disturb" tag. Unfortunately, it seems this request went ignored. Because housekeeping came in our room the next day when we were not there; they also attempted to clean our room the third day, but we informed them we did not require housekeeping; and again on check-out day, they came knocking on our door before 9am, despite the fact that check-out was not until 11am.
Overall, I was less than impressed with the Flamingo.
