Help on the Flamingo

I was thinking of staying at the Flamingo for my next Vegas trip, just something about it seems cool. I checked out the rooms and they seem pretty nice and cheap. I was just wondering what everyone's thoughts were on the Flamingo?

Cheap, yes. Nice? No. Look at the reviews. Fair, Ok, for the price, decent are not words that yell out nice, great, awesome. Why torture yourself?

They have a variety of room qualities and yes it is good value.

I have rooms booked there for my next visit mainly because it is a perfect location center strip.

Will not be spending much time in the room, the casino or dining there so as long as it's clean and everything works it works for me.

We stayed at the Flamingo the first few times in Vegas, for just the reasons listed above. The rooms are reasonable, the location is perfect, the grounds are nice, the pool is nice also, and the food choices. I will say however, the rooms have been upgraded since then, and we have also moved on to other locations, but never regretted staying there those times.

I stayed in a Go room. It was fine. I enjoyed the pool.

I don't like their casino or dining options so I went elsewhere.

It's just okay. Gaming is terrible, buffet is awful. Rooms are cheap, though. I'd stay at Monte Carlo or Bally's before I'd stay at Flamingo.Do your gambling elsewhere. The only thing it has going for it is location and a nice pool.

Stayed there, and had no problems.

Looking for a cheap room with good location...it fits the bill.

I cancelled my reservation for my November trip mainly because the pool is nice but the gambling there if your a blackjack player is some of the worst in vegas

They only have 2 3:2 under $25 in there entire casino and all the rest are 6:5/ plus I'm not impressed with there drink service

Decent rooms if you get a go room

Stained carpets throughout casino , bad restaurant options , horrible buffet , good show ( Donny & marie) good food court , decent sportsbook and great location - that's the flamingo in a nutshell

i have no problems with it minus the bad cigarette smell in the casino. my room was nice a few wks ago for the price. i have noticed that you dont stay in your own hotel anyway that much in vegas. the location was great, but i did eat elsewhere like they have mentioned above. i had a perfect view of the linq which i thought was cool.

The hotel is perfectly fine, if you get an upgraded go room its good, the older rooms are very dated, pools are great and very lively if your into that. Its all about location at the Flamingo it cannot be beat and there is stacks of choice on your doorstep for everything. The buffet is to be avoided its awful so don't waste time eating there.

Breathe in the nice coconut scented air and you will feel like your almost in Hawaii. For the cost Flamingo is a great choice.
