Missing Engineers

Extraordinary77701 (Calgary, Canada) on May 24, 2024

Took us two days to get a new room because no wifi. Kept getting BS story that an engineer was on the way up. No one showed up. Front desk very rude. Needed to wait in stupid line about 8 times to resolve. Were told over the phone To use the in-house line. Doesn’t exist. Elevator taking you to your floor worse odds than roulette. About 40 chairs available at the pool. Most you need to pay for. Time bulldoze the place and start again.

Enjoyable trip, outstanding location

stewartp2020 (Glasgow, United Kingdom) on May 23, 2024

Overall a really good experience. Outstanding location and an authentic Vega experience. Room was really good and the pool facilities, habitat gardens were all wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed. The only negative to report was an incident involving an ATM transaction and the poor response I had from the staff. I went to lift $200 (from my UK Bank Card) and the screen prompted to 'accept conversion' prior to the completion of the transaction. However, there was a significant transaction fee, so I selected 'decline conversion' and cancel the transaction instead. However, on review of my online bank statement, $200 showed as being removed from my account. I went to the cashier, who told me it might return to my account, but I started to worry that, although I was sure that I had selected 'decline conversion', that perhaps done something wrong. So, I contacted lost and found and asked 1) if anyone had handed $200 in and if not, 2) to review the camera at the ATM machine to see if the money had come out (despite being sure that nothing had come out) and if someone had taken it. I was told they couldn't do that. The money has not returned to my account (almost 10 days) and bizarrely only shows as $200 as leaving my account, rather than $200 + the $11 or so transaction fee that should have come out if the transaction had actually been completed. This was really disappointing that the hotel wouldn't help, but it was a wonderful trip otherwise.

Worst stay in Las Vegas

Passenger09604839911 (Albuquerque, New Mexico) on May 22, 2024

When we booked with a member rep in the phone, we requested 2 rooms, strip view, adjacent rooms as I had my one-year-old daughter. Both rooms were to be king beds, when we checked in they had us separated by 6 floors, one king bed and one room was two queens. It took several discussions to even get onto the same floor then was put far down two long hallways farthest from the elevator when my mother is handicap. Our dinner plans were ruined as requested a playpen or travel crib and then proceeded to wait for 4 1/2 hours, it was 12:30 a.m. before they brought the crib. (They asked us to stay in the room till the crib was brought) Then they called our room an hour later to wake up my daughter. The refrigerator didn’t work in my parents room, the toilet seat was loose, sink dirty in our room… we always stay at flamingo for the location and price but clearly management has declined.

Great value for money!

sarah h (Portsmouth, United Kingdom) on May 22, 2024

We were pleasantly surprised at our stay at the Flamingo. We didn't want to spend much money on the room as we knew we wouldn't spend much time in the room. It was one of the cheaper hotels for the night we went but it was perfect in every way for us. The location is perfect being right in the centre of the strip. The rooms were nice, some of them a bit outdated but clean and had all the facilities we needed. Recommend if you just want somewhere to sleep!

Almost perfect til the hotel tried to fraud my credit card

jadecardinal22 (Edmonton, Canada) on May 22, 2024

After reading bad reviews of this place I was worried to stay here. My boyfriend and I arrived at the hotel May 15, 24. Everything was good. We had a room on the 7th floor, not too far from the elevators which was lovely considering the marathon we had to walk to get to our friends room which was on the complete other side of the hotel.. prepare to do a lot of walking in Vegas. Check in was fast, our room was clean, bathroom clean, towels clean. We had hot water in the shower every day. Housekeeping came in every afternoon and gave us clean towels and cleaned the room, made the bed. Everything was great. No problems at all to be honest. They had a food court in the hotel which had good coffee but overly expensive For food or a meal. At Johnny rockets we paid $43usd for 2 coffees, a bottle of water and 2 breakfast sandwich’s you could get at Tim Hortons or McDonald’s for $15 . We didn’t do that again. But the next food vendor next to it had a full on breakfast with eggs, bacon, hash browns, biscuit for $14. We ate there twice. I’m sure there was less expensive places out there but we didn’t want to walk for that. I don’t have much to complain about really.. I think we were one of the lucky ones lol. Everyone was polite to us and all the cleaning staff were very nice to us. I over heard someone in the hotel looking for the manager because she found blood on the sheets of her bed and heard her mumbling that everyone was so rude around there when she was trying to find management to speak to. Only thing that made me give this hotel a 3 is because when I checked out, I got a receipt stating my deposit would be returned to my credit card which it was and about 4 hours later when I returned home, looked at my credit card transactions, I seen flamingo tried to charge my card $504 and it was declined. I called my credit card and they couldn’t see that transaction on their end so they transferred me to a different department which seen that transaction and they looked into it to find that flamingo hotel tried to make a transaction without my authorization. The transaction info said “mismatch reversal” I think the hotel was trying to fraud me. Currently waiting for a new credit card in the mail.
