Short Stay, Thank Goodness
Posted Oct 11, 2016
We only stayed at the Flamingo Hotel for two nights and I'm glad that was it. The first night we were bombarded with noise from the hotel next door until 4:30 a.m.!! Apparently there is a Latin club in the alley between the Flamingo and the Linq that plays their music at unbelievable levels. We were on the 19th floor and it sounded like we were in the club. Now I know I'm old and not into the club scene anymore, but I cannot believe how loud this music was! At any rate, the next day we spoke with the front desk and they immediately moved us to a quieter room. The staff was awesome and totally apologetic about it. I was impressed they even did anything because we were only staying one more night so they easily could have told us to suck it up, but they didn't. What really sucked was my husband and I were so tired the next day we didn't do any of the activities we had planned. We had to hang out until 3:00 p.m. to enact the room change and after that we chilled until we went out to meet friends for dinner.
Beyond that, the hotel itself is old and needs some TLC. There were the expected peeling wallpaper, banged up furniture, etc. What did surprise me was that the room was not as clean as one would hope. There were dust bunnies everywhere because there is no carpet in the room (there is an area rug, but that is it) and the bathroom could have used a little better going over.
Vegas is always a blast, but this was not as enjoyable as it could have been.
