We arrived on a very busy Sunday. The queue to check in was extremely long. Lucky for me, I have a platinum players card so I was able to go in through the VIP entrance which was a lot faster. I was... Read more with a large party so they allowed me to bring one guest in at a time so they could check in. We requested a smoking room so it wasn't available when we arrived at noon. Our room was ready at about 5 p.m. This is one of the more economic hotels on the center of the strip. The casino is nice and it connects to the Margaritaville which is cool. It's a very convenient location with the Quad right next door and the Harrah's not too far from there. Also a walk way that connects the Caesars Palace to the Flamingo. Also, I loved that there was a Monorail stop located at the Flamingo. The room was nothing special, a bit dated. The view was great, we paid extra for a strip view. The bathroom was very small and was in need of some remodeling. The tub drained very slowly which was kind of a hassle. The rugs that run in the hallways seem to be loose and a trip hazard. My grandfather almost tripped when walking back to his room. Also, the elevators were scary to ride in, noisy and rough. One elevator was down the entire time of our stay, 6 days. I would stay again if needed because the casino was nice and staff was nice as well. However, I prefer the Harrahs over the Flamingo and the cost is usually relative. Read less
The Flamingo has wonderful, renovated rooms - amazingly quiet! (room overlooking the gardens/pool towards the High Roller (gynormous ferris wheel) - with no carpeting! Yeah! Clean floors, very comfy... Read more beds, pillows, wall -to -wall, floor to ceiling windows, big bathroom, quiet a/c, and large room. Good selection for food options in a nice location - restaurants overlook gardens, fish ponds - lots of natural light and an outdoor patio seating option. Depending on your demographic and vacation goals, the pools area will either suit you very well or not at all. It was 41C during our stay the 1st week of September - wonderful - but better if a relaxing time at the pool could have been included: not possible. For five days straight, bad, unbelievably loud! music blasted all day at the pools - what was even worse was the dueling music - pools adjacent to each other blasting different music that collided with each other. Truly awful - even with earplugs. The pools weren't very large, were shallow to accommodate the crowds wading with their drinks. Very difficult to find a lounger, even though they were packed in on the small pool deck. Pool experience very disappointing. Also negative - no free wifi in the hotel (other than in a restaurant) - not in the lobby, the casino, etc. - very inconvenient. Location of Flamingo is perfect for easy access to the rest of the strip, main attractions/shopping and the staff; front desk, cafe, bag storage, room cleaning were all very nice, helpful and attentive. The price for this hotel (location, quality of room, staff, amenities) was very good. Oh yes, and my sister won in the casino every day! Read less
The hotel was in a great location and made it fairly easy to walk to whatever you wanted on the strip. The line-up for check in and out was a bit lengthy. I was not quite prepared for the ladies who... Read more offer you "free gifts" in the hotel lobby, but they were good at taking no for an answer.The pools were great and catered to party people or quieter ones. The casino was fairly big and everyone friendly. The room was a bit dated and the carpets stained. But it was not smelly or "dirty" and the size of the room made up for the carpet. There were several eating options but the best one we found was in The Quad...Hash House a Go Go. Huge portions and one meal serves two people!! Read less
Just returned from a Mon-Fri visit with my wife at the Flamingo for my first trip to Vegas. After reading all these reviews our stay was as expected. We certainly got what we paid for... Read more (avg:$32/night/basic Deluxe Room); no more no less. Check in was a breeze as there was no wait. During my research all I read about was the '$20 sandwich' at check in and vast majority of people would get a free room upgrade. So I thought why not give it a try. Folded the 20 between the credit card and DL and politely asked the young male clerk if there were any complimentary upgrades available, please. He kind of smirked and his facial expressions said 'here we go again' haha...but didn't say anything he was just typing away. He didn't say much and he was wearing a football jersey (as most employees were that day) so I tried to make football small talk...he didn't seem to interested. After a minute or so then went and talked to his manger and said he could upgrade me for $25/night for a high roller view room (new observation wheel). I politely declined and he handed me back my $20. The clerk was not unfriendly but wasn't over the top friendly. Certainly seemed to be just going through the motions. I was a little bummed but didn't really care, as we had no intentions of staying in our room much anyway. The elevators were fine, no long waits. I wont say the hallways were dirty, just tired and old. The 20th floor room had been renovated, wood laminate floors, a bed, a nice view of the garden/pool. It was as basic as they come, no coffee, no fridge, desk, tv, basic bathroom. The bed was 'broken in' but we found in comfortable. Upon entering the room my wife complained it kind of stunk. She's pregnant so everything stinks to her. I didn't find that it stunk..it just smelt like 'not brand new'. After the first day she never mentioned it again. The ceiling above the bed had paint peeling and bubbling from what looks like previous water damage?...for $32 what do you expect? We didn't get too excited about it. The room was a about as far away from the elevator as you could get on the floor but was not a big deal. Area was quiet and never really heard anyone else around. The casino (didnt gamble much) when compared to others on the strip is definitely dated but was always busy, so it had a great atmosphere. Drink service wasn't bad and I found the sports book was generous with drink tickets, you just had to ask. We didn't not eat anywhere on the property as the reviews weren't great, but Carlos n Charlies did look like a decent spot with a nice patio. The GO Pool was pretty cool, like others posted very busy and tough to find a chair. DJs playing some good music and a great mix in. Security does check your bag and ID upon entering but were friendly. Drinks are a bit pricey $7/beer $16 for a frozen drink. The bartenders like the clerk weren't unfriendly but weren't overly friendly either. People were having a great time, but didn't seem like a pretentious kind of place at all which was great. The family pool was also definitely more relaxed. Now the best part by far is the location! Centre strip, walking distance to everything!! Caesers across the street, Bellagio kitty corner. The LINQ literally a 1 min walk from our elevator and newly renovated Oshea's and QUAD Casino was really nice and spent some time in there. Really every major Casino is just a short walk and don't forget the older dingier places like Casino Royale and their $1 Michelobs! Now if you are looking for a very affordable place to sleep, not posh, busy and bustling, laid back place with a fantastic location and great pool than the Flamingo is for you. If you are big on over the top, tonnes of amenities, best of the best, then you'd probably hate the Flamingo. Personally considering the price and location I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and just walk to the other casinos and restaurants. Read less
