I've stayed at Flamingo three times in the last 2 years. Before staying there, I always LOVED the atmosphere in the casino. It is a very welcoming place from outside, with the bright colorful neon lights that continue inside. The casino is spacious and friendly.
I've never won big in this casino, but I never cared because it is such a friendly place. The GO rooms are very retro and fun. Flamingo has one of the nicest pool areas in Vegas. The Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville is fun, the sidewalk drink bar is fun. The restaurants are good and reasonably priced.
The location is great. A great place to stay in central Strip, steeped in history with a glimpse of Vegas past.
My wife and I just got back from spending Thanksgiving at the Flamingo. 5 days/4 nights..all comped of course!
Payed small $ for great room upgrade..A few minor room glitches but $5 tip and note to housekeeping was all it took. Very friendly staff and casino seemed less smokey than our trip in March.
Machines "seemed" tighter, but when they are not being played as much, things do seem tighter. Food was a little overpriced again but drink service was fine.
Side note: Won't go again during a holiday..no one's fault but ours but my God!! NEVER SAW SO MANY KIDS IN MY LIFE! At times it seemed like we were in Orlando, not Las Vegas! This realy turns me off....not a place for kids I don't care what the reason is..it just takes away the whole "adult" thing.
My wife and I just got back from a 5 day/4 night stay. Room was comped but we upgraded for a newer remodeled room for only $25.00 a night. Great Room!Huge 52" TV and a 13" TV in the mirror of the bathroom. A sports lover's dream come true!
Casino had good selection of machines in all denominations.Also had 2 Rapid Roulette tables at $2.50 minimums. What a great deal on the strip! Fantastic location. Right in the middle of just about everything.
Food was average and a little over priced but drink service was adequate. Will stay again on our next trip.
