This was the 4th time staying at the Flamingo. Was in town for a convention. The room was clean and housekeeping friendly and helpful. We like the Flamingo because of the location in the middle of the strip. We arrived at 2:30pm and check-in wasn't until 4pm. Even though the room was ready, they wanted $25 to get in the room an hour and a half early. That is ridiculous! Are they not making enough money from our 3 night stay and the gambling money? Needless to say, we did not pay the extra money to check-in early which was an inconvenience after a long day of travel. After arriving in the room, we wanted to turn on the TV to relax for a while only to have the TV remote not working. It took them almost 2 hours to bring a new remote - can't change the channels on their TV's without the remote. On the last day, the hotel almost had a sewer type smell - glad we were leaving. Overall, the trip was good but I will be trying another hotel on my next visit.
