We were at the Flamingo by the Lake for a week long conference. Even though we live in the area, we chose to stay at the conference so we would not be late for the meetings or miss social events in the evenings. Wished we had stayed at our home - even with hour long traffic each way! The bedrooms were very dirty, there was mold and mildew all over the shower, lots of cracked tiles with filth wedged in between. Just a good spray with bleach water or mildew cleaner would have tidied things up a lot. The toilet in our room never worked right even though maintenance came to repair it twice during the week. We finally gave up and let housekeeping deal. The air con leaked water which dripped on our sons cot. The room was very musty and we had to open the doors and run the air con at the same time to clean out the smells. The strange thing was that this hotel was always full (they could never give us another room). There were tour groups most of the week while our group was there. My suspicion is that they get low cost tour groups to come who have no choice of hotel. They are only there for one or two nights.
The common area meeting rooms, lobby, and bathrooms were much nicer than the bedrooms. They were also very practical and functional. I would hold a meeting there if no one had to stay in the bedrooms! The food at the hotel was good, nice selection, but several people at our conference fell ill. Wasn't sure if it was the food or a virus going around.
