“Horrible Serive”
Reviewed 4 July 2007

Myself, my finance, best friend and her brother stayed at the Flamingo from July 1st through the 2nd and I would not recommend it to ANYONE! When my finance went to get coffee in the morning they made him search the entire front desk area for cups and coffee because the lady was too busy on the phone! The room was dirty, the beds were HARD. It felt like bugs were biting you in the middle of the night!!! They refused to give us extra towels, because it was against some kind of rule in housekeeping. The coffee pot in the room was dirty. There's no microwave and almost everything we brought with was for a microwave. The alarm clock didn't work. They wouldn't let us check out at 11am instead of 10:30am. The ENTIRE staff was RUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We didn't receive our 2 free Noah's Ark tickets we were told we would get when I talked to them on the phone. It's a $121.00/night and it's not even worth it! And the door didn't even lock to the room. The entire stay there just wrecked everything!

We booked the family suite a few months back after hitting several hotels up for our week long stay. We paid about $30 less to stay here than the Kalhari or Wilderness. The pools were cold, the outdoor whirlpool was horrible, the indoor pool, well it was interesting chipped paint, just bad. The rooms were dated, smelled of mildew. Upon waking up our 2nd morning there the pipes were rattling fierously. To stop this at 6:00 a.m. I had to turn on the hot water. The price includes those "free," tickets you get to Noah's Ark. And, yes it's close. And, if you notice the equipment at the Flamingo is similar to Noahs Ark. I believe they are both owned by the same owner, and that the hotel is future expansion property. The price is not worth the FREE tickets as Noah's Ark was crazily a mess too. Stay away. Spend the money you spend here at Kalhari.

We just got back from our two night stay at the Flamingo and I have to say it wasn't that bad....Yes it is older..don't stay there if you are looking for an expensive resort type place. The first night we stayed in the Family suite...it was clean and we had no problems...it was not noisy nor did we feel at all unsafe. We decided to stay an extra night so they moved us to two rooms with two quuen size beds in each....again nice room....smelled as if it had just been painted...again no noise could be heard. We had some trouble at first as they assinged us to a room that already had someone in it but they upgraded us to two rooms with queen beds for the hassle which also got us two extra tickets to Nohas ark...so in all we paid $205 for two nights stay and 6 Noahs ark tickets for free....can't beat that! Again if your looking to stay at a ultra nice palce there are plenty of those in the Dells but if your looking ofr something afordable for you family right behing Nohas Ark I reccomend the Flamingo! If you have problems with your room they will accomadate....but if you don't say anything they aren't going to help!

Upon arrival when you first drive into this hotel you think....Oh what a dump! Then when you see the suites behind those run down older rooms, you lighten up. The rooms were just beautiful but our room needed some TLC. Vacuuming etc was not very good, cob webs in the corners and along the wall between the bed. Pubby hairs on the toilet. My daughters room stunk just like cat pee. All in all the hotel was nice, the pools were great. When my daughter-in-law complained about the smell she was told "we don't give refunds!" LOL thats not what she was getting at, just wanted to let them know it stunk.

  • Liked — huge king size bed in my suite
  • Disliked — uncleanliness and smell of portion of the rooms. I booked 3 rooms. Room slept 6 they could have offered more free tickets to the Noahs Ark. I had to pay for 11 more besides only the 2 free per room.

We stayed there Memorial Weekend and got great rates on our rooms, even though it was a hoilday weekend. The staff was extremely friendly. The outdoor pools were not cold, very comfortable. The room was very basic but clean and spacious. We stayed in their " family value suites" which are their "not-newly-remolded" rooms. Even though you could tell they needed some updating, there wasn't anything that didn't seem sound. I think that the only complant I have is that the window opened up completely but there was no screen in the window so bugs were allowed in freely with the window open. (our room was on the ground floor so for saftey we didn't leave the window open either)

The best thing about staying here was that we received free Noah's Ark tickets with our stay. That was a great value and saved us a lot of money! We could also easily walk to the waterpark. The room was nice and the outdoor pool was cute. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, but especially families with children.

I think we just lucked out I guess....We stayed for 2 nights this summer and it was not a problem at all. The rooms were ok to average, but we expected that for $99 a night. They were not dirty, but they definately could use some upgrading. We had the double queen with a twin bunk bed above one of them. It worked great for a family of 5. The pools were ok, not wonderful, but certainly not that bad. The inside one was a bit bad though...didn't look like it was used much, nor cleaned much either. That whole area (hot tub, showers, toilets, game room really was the worst of the stay.) But we swam in the 3 outside pools, the kids enjoyed the stay. And we did save a boat load of money with the free Noah's ark tickets. So to sum it up....it was fine, certainly not a 3 or 4 star hotel, but nothing as bad as some of the others had experienced. I would stay again.

  • Liked — everyone seemed nice there, helpful
  • Disliked — needed upgrading
  • Tips/Secrets — take your chances....life is a gamble anyway, right??
