“First (and Last) Stay Here...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

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.

This is a much older hotel, one I wouldn't stay in again. Sandwich trick got us a suite (not even an updated one for $50) but decor, half the lights working, stained carpet, hairy towels, room service left in hallways for days and an aged casino wasn't ideal. The bed was comfy, construction didn't bother us and the party people were tame. Just stayed here to sleep and dodging time share reps in hopes if a decent meal and a roulette table was doable. Middle of everything so going elsewhere wasn't too much.

Don't stay here unless you are much older. We are not party animals, just a couple looking for sight seeing, average gambling and decent food. Will be staying at Paris, Ballys, PH, Ceasars or Bellagio next - Flamingo just didn't make the grade for an average stay. I can handle an aged hotel but the hairy towels and mold in the shower wasn't cool. Safety and sanitation is important for any traveler.

This was my 7th stay in Las Vegas. I have stayed at Planet Hollywood (twice), Harrah's, New York New York, Luxor, and in old Vegas. This is our first time staying at the Flamingo and the hotel was highly disappointing. Upon arrival at the hotel in a rental car we had to drive around the garage for 15 minutes to find a parking spot. Over half of the garage is reserved for Valet or Hilton Grand guests. This would happen anytime we took the car anywhere to see anything. It was very frustrating.

When we finally found a spot, we went and stood in line to check-in and had to wait 15 minutes because anytime a Total Rewards Gold member came up in a separate line they took that person right away. There was a line of 25 people behind me and they would not check us in until the Gold members line was completely empty. That says they really value all of their customers (sarcasm).

When we finally went to check-in, they did not have the king-size bed room that we had requested so they gave us a double-queen room. I was disappointed, but took the room because we were tired from our trip. The room furniture and especially the bathroom were disgusting. The bathroom faucet and handle were actually coming out of the wall. The bathroom sink was about 3 feet off the ground, which I had never seen before. It was like it was made for children. The bed sheets in the 1 queen bed had red marks on them (paint or blood perhaps). It was disgusting. After the first night we went to the front desk and demanded a new room. We were given a king-sized bed but the bathroom faucet in that room still had a problem. The furniture was old and dilapidated as well.

In summary, I would never ever stay at this hotel. It is not cheap, the service is terrible, the parking is a joke, and the rooms are old and dingy. The worst hotel I have ever stayed at in my life.

Stayed during the Veterans weekend in a Fab room outside the "construction". Never heard a thing. Room was clean ,beds comfy, plenty of linens, and the Buffet good. Location of this Hotel to Monorail and Strip are unsurpassed. Vegas always has construction and is somewhat hard to transverse up the strip to Planet Hollywood and others.
The "Total Rewards" is outstanding. Thanks to others info posted here was able to Eat free for two days! Comps never ended. They are all trying to keep Patrons on their site and are willing to offer what it takes. The only downfall was the "Timeshare" hackers. They are stationed in two locations on the main floor. This isn't the only Hotel that have them, but it can be troublesome to avoid. NO NO No usually gets across to them.
The one negative is prices in the stores for usual stuff is expensive. Water $3.50 vs Beer $3.25. Chips not marked, but $5.99 a bag.

Room Tip: The Fab with 2 queens is nice. Carpet is NOT ruffled in the Halls. The floors are suppose to rubber...

Green Features: Smoking is discrete and unoffensive in both the Casino and other places. Habitat is a great place to feel in touch with nature.

Love the Flamingo, do most of my winning there, it's like old home week everytime we visit. But I think hall carpeting needs replacing, seems to be trying to improve the pace. But I can't seem to get any one to take my comps off my bill and send me an e-mail of that bill. Other then that I always send my friends and family to the Flamingo.

Room Tip: Go deluxe garden view. High up so you see through the Ferrie wheel

This place is a DUMP. It is not only run down it is dirty. Got into my "upgraded" room and the first thing I find is the bathroom faucet is about to fall off the sink. The carpets are dirty and the tables between the beds have rings where people have left their drinks and dried sticky spots where they have spilled their drinks and maid service hasn't wiped it up. I would say it has been weeks since they dusted. I have complained to the front desk. The sink was fixed and nothing else has been touched.
My advise is STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!

JDNS55, on behalf of the Flamingo, we sincerely apologize for the manner in which you found your room prepared. This is totally unacceptable and we can assure you that these shortcomings have been reviewed with our Housekeeping Staff to reiterate our goal of guest satisfaction. The condition this room was prepared is embarrassing and short of our standards. We hope you will give us another try on a future visit.
