Pet Friendly, Not People Friendly! Posted Mar 31, 2015
Our flight was 1 hour late into Vegas, with that being said we didn't expect the greeting at the front desk that we got at midnight after traveling 3 hours on a plane. We were greeted with a line waiting to check in that stretched as far as you could see and looped around stanchions much like waiting to get on the Matterhorn at Disneyland! It took until 3:30 in the morning to get to our room. We threw our bags on the floor and jumped into bed after gawking at a beautiful view from the 16th floor. That was the good part, we listened to elevator cables or something all night, dripping shower, and on closer inspection the plumbing fixtures were literally rusting away from lime! When I turned around, I happened to look at the commode and there was gross brown mold all under edge! Since we were only staying 3 nights, and one had already passed, we went to the local supermarket and purchased a bottle of bleach and cleaned the bathroom from top to bottom. (the next visitors will appreciate it). We didn't expect an reputable hotel such as the Flamingo to have rooms like this, suffice to say we didn't spend much time in it relaxing. BUT the breakfast buffet was excellent and with free Bloody Marys and Mimosa's it worth going there! I wouldn't recommend staying there, there are too many other hotels that reinvest in the renewal process to present rooms that one is accustom to when coming to glamorous Las Vegas!
