This was our second stay at the Flamingo, check-in was horrible the first time and still not great this time, even though we got in well after midnight due to flight delays. Without asking, we ended up with a room with a strip view both times; I love looking out over Caesar's and the mountains, especially at sunset. The elevators were ok and there are a lot of them, but they need some TLC. The regular pool area is as gorgeous as ever, and was not real crowded the morning we swam. The room was average, everything worked and was clean, no complaints. We learned from our first visit to skip the overpriced hotel buffet, and learned this time that Carlos & Charlie's restaurant within the casino is not good either. Thankfully an area known as "The Linq" (where Imperial Palace hotel/casino used to be, I believe) has been developed adjacent to the hotel with several restaurants and shops - very nice addition to the area!! We used Vegas as a jumping off point to take our teenage son to the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon before driving to California to visit friends. I must say that I felt like the worst mother EVER arriving so late into Las Vegas on a Saturday night simply due to the number of intoxicated, loud, barely-clothed people walking around at all hours. Not to mention the "Girls to your Room" ads by the street 'vendors' and moving billboards that are everywhere; it was really embarrassing. I feel like it was much more prevalent than the last time we were there. Thankfully, in the light of day, especially on a Sunday and Monday, the crowd around the Flamingo was MUCH tamer! With our day trips, we really weren't around that much, so the hotel served our purpose. Don't be fooled by anyone who says how family-friendly Las Vegas has become! Also if you rent a car, the parking garage is free, but it is very tight and quite the maze, we were at the top of the garage every time we looked for a space. Since it is free and there is no security presence whatsoever, I have a feeling it quickly becomes a public garage since the Flamingo is so central to the strip.
