    You can't beat the location and nostalgia of Flamingo. We never did find the live flamingos though we walked all over and asked numerous staff people for directions. I would have like to check out the pool but it's too cold for all that in December.

    Now we are talkin’ Las Vegas Classic. The Flamingo was built by infamous gangster Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel. It was the first ‘European style hotel on The Las Vegas Strip (meaning it did not have the ubiquitous sawdust on the floor of the traditional Gamblin’ Halls of Las Vegas at the time.) Siegel designed the pool to always be in the sun, a very cool feature. It also was the first to feature A List entertainment, evening gowns and tuxedos. All of that is all but gone, they do, however, have real Flamingos. It is worth it to stop in and breath in the faint trace of yesteryear. Live it up you are in Las Vegas for cryin’ out loud!

    On my visit to the Flamingo Hotel I really liked the atmosphere. The hotel seemed to have been renovated a little bit. The property seemed really bright and airy. From the time I entered the Casino I was greeted by warm smiles from the friendly staff.

    The casino area seemed a bit bigger than I remembered, and I liked that the air in the casino felt crisp and clean. They had a lot of table games so I didn't have to wait to sit at a black jack table. The cocktail waitresses seemed to come around quite often which everyone at my blackjack table enjoyed. Even the people at my table seemed friendly as well and it was definitely a great night at the Flamingo.

    Stayed here for three nights in a GO Mini Suite during a bachelor party. The GO suites are very nice but others in our group were in standard rooms and they were definitely dated. The hallways on the lower floors were in awful shape with the carpeting wrinkling up, creating trip hazards all over the place and just looking generally crappy. The casino has a good variety of games with reasonable limits but the low ceilings and the decor feel like they belong on Fremont Street. Adding to that feeling is the stretch of casinos around it: Bally's, Bill's (now a construction site), The Quad, Harrah's, Casino Royale ... not exactly for high rollers. It is easy to get across to Mirage, Caesars and Bellagio, though.

    Not a fancy hotel, but comfortable and reasonably priced. Also close to middle of the strip so near lots of great shopping and sights. Booked and paid in Oct so didn't have to pay resort fee!

    I love the go rooms. The hotel is good but you must stay in the go rooms. The decor is modern and the beds are amazing for a hotel. I have stayed here a few times and have always enjoyed it. The casino has a fun party atmosphere and is very welcoming. Even if your not staying here you should check it out you will not be disappointed.

    One of the most famous hotels in Las Vegas. Right on the Strip, in front of the Bellagio so you can admire its water show. In short, a perfect location.

    Not the most modern, but really fancy, with nice restaurants and great rooms. Mine had a view on the pool, wich is really nice (but really crowded) with its tropical atmosphere.

    Also important, the rates are not too expensive if you make a reservation early before your staying. Totally recommand if you have 3 or 4 days to enjoy a kitsch but pleasant place for a kitsch but pleasant (for a couple of days) city.

    The Flamingo is one of the old school Casino/Hotels in Las Vegas. Most of it's contemporaries have been torn down or are on their way down. Desert Inn, Stardust, etc.

    Hilton bought it quite a while ago to add it to their huge flagship Hilton on the north end of the strip near the convention center (well at the time it was huge, now it is being dwarfed by new projects).

    It has been remodeled and spruced up by Hilton, and now it really serves as a mid-level Casino/Hotel offering for Hilton in Vegas. Hilton has several large Condo/Timeshare properties now for non-casino vacationers, and the Hilton still serves as the flagship. But, a few years ago, Hilton sold this property to Harrah's Group.

    As such, the hotel is nothing special for Vegas goers, and in this town where the hottest thing is whatever is the latest and largest, the Flamingo dwarfs in comparison.

    Perhaps the best part of the hotel is the large tropical courtyard with its lush greenery. They do offer a lot of cheap room specials, so it isn't a bad choice for value travelers who still want some Vegas luxury, and don't want the riff raff in the next room that comes at the Circus Circus, Hooters, Stratosphere or Excalibur.

    Do not be lured in to this hotel by its cheap rates and "newly remodeled" room pictures!!

    Maybe some people will call me a hotel snob after reading my review. But when I spend money for a good night of sleep, I want to enjoy my sleep and not worry.
    Perhaps I stayed at the 5 stars hotel more then the regular 3 stars one in Vegas, but even a nice motel is better then staying here.

    2 1/2 stars for the room itself. Minus 1/2 stars for the disgusting, dirty parking structure and it's hallway to the casino. It's filthy and smelly. The Valet parking is totally on the other side of the building away from the casino and the hotel lobby! Kind of a long walk if you're carrying all those luggage.

    I hate jumping from hotel to hotel, but since we wanted to extend our stay in Vegas and wanted a more convenient location on the strip, we searched the Internet and thought we got this great deal for a newly remodeled room.

    THE ROOMS:
    It's like taking a 1980's hotel room and "renovating" it by cover ups. The rooms are repainted and floors were redone, and new beds. That's only the best part.
    They have new vinyl wooden floor, no carpet except a small rug in the walk way. (Which is a good things so it doesn't stink from the 30 year old carpet.. lol)
    The furniture as of the table, night light table, and TV stand are all kind of banged up and so ready for a face lift!

    The room itself is OK., but the tiny bathroom is where I draw the line. The door hinges and side panels were all old and rusty. They're mildew stain on the corners and white tiles inside the bath tub. It's clean but it's old and it's falling apart. The bathroom floor tiles were black and dingy, guess when they replaced the room's floor, they couldn't budget another 60 square feet of flooring in for bathroom, instead they rather gross out their guests. They have nearly to none amenities. No slippers, not even coffee maker. Even the Motel 8 down the street has a coffee maker. They have an old wall burnt out hair dryer. I wouldn't risk it, because it looks like it's ready electrocute you when you turn it on.

    If they did a remodeled, why didn't they just rip everything apart and replace it back with a everything new, this way, it really looks like they took the easy way out. Cover the stain up but not cleaning it out!! Although it may not be that bad, but thought of it, is kind of disgusting. There is no fan blower in the small tiny bathroom. So if any one have to go #2, make sure you buy a room spray for the bathroom. Without the bathroom fan, even when I take a shower, I have to leave the door with an open airway, or else I would suffocate in the hot steam.

    The air conditioning is hell LOUD! If you're a light sleeper, make sure it's off!
    We were in room 7084 and 7086 with a connecting door with old rusted door knob and chain. We had a great view of the strip right in front of the Caesar Palace fountain... It would have been so much prettier if the windows were clean. It was so disgusting and barely can see through the windows for the view.

    Would I stay here again?.. probably not unless I was desperate.. The parking structure and valet is very inconvenience. It's only idealistic to stay here if you go out walking from casino to casino. But we don't. We just drive around and when we get back to the Flamingo, we just stay at the hotel/ casino.

    One of the oldest hotels on the "new" strip, the Flamingo boasts all of the modern amenities with some old Vegas charm. The Flamingo also has a wildlife habitat area with those famous flamingos, along with some other water birds, koi, and turtles. If you are into buffets, the weekend champagne brunch at the flamingo cannot be beat. Almost every type of food is available to make anyone's taste buds delighted. Leave room for dessert (and more champagne).

    great location, not that great of a place to hang out, I feel like this place is mostly for the older crowd. The decor and theme are very retro. I wouldnt really come back here

    We stayed at the famingo Hotel and casino in las vegas 2 years ago. Also 5 years ago. It is now not the same place. It is run down. Didn't find that is was as nice. It's really outdate and needs to be changed. New updates to the rooms and we didn't find that the people that work at the desk were as nice as could be. We had prebooked out rooms and when we got there they had changed them. Take it or leave it was the attitude I took from it. I have been since but stayed else where. thanks

    Fun updated rooms with a gray and pink theme. The pool area is nice and large with palm trees, outdoor bars, waterfalls, and a DJ. Inside there are many restaurant choices, shopping, and food courts. If you're looking for breakfast, stop by the Mrs. Fields cookie place. They serve egg, cheese, and ham or bacon sandwiches on your choice of fresh baked croissant or bagel. Stop by the steak place for happy hour all day. Half off martinis, glasses of wine and ask for Ted the bartender. He's the best!

    The casino at the Flamingo Hotel was one of my favorites. I also loved the flamingo exhibit. They had the cutest penguins, I could have watched them for hours.

    We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The location is good for exploring the Strip and the pool/garden area is great. The shows and buffet were also very good making it a total package.

    My absolutely favorite hotel in Vegas! Beautiful pool, beautiful habitat, excellent buffet with a view outside, great slot machines (you can actually win something there...) and stay prices are very reasonable. Also, great location right in the middle of the strip!

    We Weren't Built on the Strip
    The Strip Was Built Around Us

    The Flamingo is one of the old school Casino/Hotels in Las Vegas. Many of its contemporaries (Dessert Inn, Sands, Stardust, etc.) have been torn down. Others like Circus Circus are dwarfed by their more modern and shinier successors. As such, this Hotel is nothing special for Vegas goers, and for folks like me, this is where the meeting was held, so why not stay here?

    My upgraded Room (in the Spa Tower) was about $80. It was roomy, clean, and comfortable, albeit dated and in need of refurbishment. And at this price, there was no coffee in the room or anything else past the most basic of amenities. In hindsight, I should have maybe splurged and stayed somewhere fancier, but considering the short stay and my focused business purpose, I did just fine.

    The Conference Center part of the Hotel was much better. The meeting rooms were comfortable and very conducive for business. The Lunch Buffets were fabulous and the service in this area was excellent. It was also nice to wander out into the outdoor green belt and view the Pink Flamingos, despite the John Waters flashbacks.

    Gamblers also have their choice of the main casino areas or a separate Margaritaville area. I was a Good Boy in staying of this sort of activity or any subsequent search for lost shakers of salt.

    In a word: average. Standard rooms, restaurants, and mediocre buffet. It's not on my preferred list of places to stay, and it lacks the Vegas dazzle of the rest of the Strip's themed hotels. But in its defense, it is known to have some of the loosest slots in the city. Hearsay, and a bit of personal experience.
