This was my seventh trip to LV, but first stay at the Flamingo. I love the central location on the strip, but was not impressed with the hotel. I'm usually not picky about hotel rooms in LV since I am rarely in the room, but this room was pretty dingy. There were stains on the carpet and the furniture was very outdated. The bathroom looked like it hadn't been updated in 20 years and was cramped and musty. We stayed in a smoking room (even though we reserved a non-smoking room) and our room had a terrible stench to it. Even now that I am home, I am still smelling the stale smoke on my coat, purse, and suitcase.
On the plus side, the casino is super easy to navigate and the location of the hotel is awesome. All of the bars, casinos, and restaurants that I enjoy are just a short walk away which is a priority to me in LV. I stayed at New York, New York in December and while it was a far better hotel than Flamingo, I would chose Flamingo over it simply because of the excellent location. In July I stayed at Bally's which is next door to the Flamingo, and will most likely stay there for my next trip because the hotel is a bit nicer. I paid $250 for air and room at Flamingo and $280 at Bally's. I'll spend the extra $30 for Bally's. But don't get me wrong, for $250 for a long weekend, I am definitely pleased.
