“Penguins are adorable!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2004

We stayed at Flamingo 8-9 thru 8-12. Checkin at airport was great but if you have not been there before ask for a map of the hotel or you will be overwhelmed which we were! Tip on shuttle--buy a one way and there are many shuttle services that will be happy to take you back to airport free with just a tip and you won't even need a reservation. Hotel was very nice but be prepared to walk. The place is huge. I did not like the long distance back and forth to the room but I think they have it set up that way on purpose for casino use strategy. The hair dryer in room did not work but we had our own anyway. The room was very clean and had a great view of the wildlife habitat on 16th floor. We earned enough comps to take care of one night free and the nickel slots were fun and paid a nice chunk out to this gal! Hubby stuck with quarters and did not fare as well. Would like to go back to LV when weather is not 116+. The wildlife habitat is marvelous and I love those penguins! The set up is very very nice! Lindy's food was good. I wish there were not as many kids around however, LV should really be for adults who want to get away from all that and take a break! Why torture yourself and everyone around else around you! Leave the 'rugrats' at home and have more fun!

In the last few years we stay often at the Flamingo, because we love it! The rooms are always nice. Last time we got one with a view of Ceasars and the Bellagio fountain that was out of this world at night. The pool at the Flamingo is one of my favorites in Vegas. It has big beautiful waterfalls and a waterslide that is large enough for adults to enjoy. Finally, we always get great customer service from booking to departure.

Stayed at the Flamingo 2 or 3 times before because of it's location and pool. This time, we stayed from August 4th through August 11th.

The Good: The Pool, Venturo Italian Restuarant and location.

The bad: The Pool Police who check the loungers around the pool every 30 minutes to ensure they are in use but ignore the louts who come in on a weekend to have their own private liquer party in the pool. This ranged from stacking hundreds of empty Foster Cans and Miller Lite bottles around the base of the Islands in the pool to pouring beer on themselves and each other while in the pool.

The price of cabs continues to astound. They should do what they do in A.C, have a fixed price for any trip not to exceed $10:00 along the Strip for example. The Monorail was free the last time I came and it astounds me they now charge for it when the people using it our the people injecting money into the Casinos.

These were the only blemishes on a great vacation. George Wallace was a blast as was the Luhau next door at the Imperial (Tuesdays and Thursdays only). One thing to check out the next time you visit is the Dealertainers at the Imperial. These are dealers dressed up as celebrities like Elvis, Tina Turner, Rod Stewart etc. who not only deal but get up and sing every so often. They are outstanding. It made the 6-5 odds for a Blackjack seem like a bargain. I could have watched these people all night long...ooops I did.

I cannot say enough good things about the Flamingo. I have stayed there at least five times and it never gets old. The staff is wonderful and I have never had to wait more than ten minutes for check in unlike a few other Vegas hotels I've stayed at. Just a tip: the Strip view really isn't anything special because all you really see is Casesars; instead, ask for a pool view. It is beautiful night and day and you feel like you are looking into a rainforest.

The pool is the best part of the hotel. It is actually three pools: a fountain pool (it has pink flamingos spraying water across the pool), a waterslide pool (it's actually a bunch of little pools connected by a bunch of slides), and a lagoon pool with waterfalls and little islands. It has got to be one of the best pool areas in Vegas.

I love the buffet, especially for breakfast. It is reasonably priced and is good food. Also, it looks out on to Flamingo's gardens which are absolutely beautiful. There is also a cute little sit down cafe which is good, but nothing special. For dinner, I would recommend finding somewhere else on the strip.

The rooms are huge by Vegas standards. Before the renovation they weren't all that nice and kind of run down, but last time I was there (in June) the entire hotel had been renovated and the rooms were very nice. Instead of the pink theme throughout the hotel, it is more modern with blacks and tans.

One of my favorite things about the Flamingo is it's central location on the strip. It is right across from Caesars, which has great dining, entertainment, and shopping. I think Flamingo is also now a stop on the new monorail system.

All in all, the Flamingo is more bang for your buck and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

We stayed here for 3 nights in July and found it to be excellent. Our room was clean, large and cool. The staff all appeared friendly and the location was superb as you are within walking distance of all the major Casinos. We stayed mid week which meant that the room was great value for money as well. There are a few good value and quality eating establishments in the hotel along with the buffet, which is again good quality. Already planning return trip.

Nice hotel. We visit Las Vegas every couple of months and have stayed at most of the hotels on the strip. The Flamingo may not be the top hotel on the strip but it certainly was among the top 5.
Location and room rates can't be beat.
Rooms are above average. The pool area is one of the best in Vegas.
Casino is nothing special. We Liked Lindy's but the service was a bit slow. Room service was surprisingly good.
We parked in the self serve parking lot and never had to return to the car until we checked out. Everything was within walking distance. I highly recomend this hotel.

The flamingo was great... talk about a very friendly hotel. We checked in at the airport and got a perfect view of the pool and the east side of the strip. The room was immaculate, the casino people were VERY nice (since we were all 24, they'd check our IDS and bring us free drinks in 2 minutes because we were guests there). the pool was great (but stop bringing your kids to Las Vegas, its rude.. its a 21 plus town). Lindy's had great food and it was easy walking distance to Ellis Island (best food in LV) and the monorail. The flamingo beats out Harrahs and probably any other mid priced hotel on the strip.. Period.
