    How strict is the Flamingo about additional people in a room? I had booked a room for my son and his friend and they may have a couple of people joining them. I know that Bally's allowed us to have a 3rd person in our room with no additional cost one time.

    My one experence with this was having a third in a room with two beds. They brought a rollaway bed in, which should have been extra, but I wasn't charged. Now, the room was comped for me, so maybe that had something to do with it.

    Using Caesars' website, each additional person after 2 seems to attract a $30 charge per night. I think, if this room is comped, I'd get another key, say, but if not it might look fishy at check-in asking for six keys for your double room.

    they will only have 4 in the room at the most (with 2 beds). I'm thinking if they don't get enough keys at check in they can just ask for additional ones later. thanks for your help. Normally I wouldn't do this but they are young adults with not much $$

    Don't ask for additional keys at check-in, just have the guys whose names are "registered" at the front desk stop at the desk upon returning to the hotel (or leaving) and tell the desk "I left my key in my room, can I get another one?". Nothing to it, just don't make it obvious by both of them doing it at the same time.

    Just ask how many to a room without an extra charge....anonymously.

    You can always get extra keys.

    Nobody knows if you have 1 person or 20 in a room. Unless you tell them.

    We had 5 people in our room at Flamingo for the first night in Sept. 2 beds and one person slept on the chaise lounge thing that was in the room. We asked for 3 keys at first, I say I always lose one, so I Like to keep on in my wallet as a back up.
    As long as youre not throwing a huge party in your room, no one will notice.

    When booking, always book for two people to avoid an up-charge. I stayed at the Flamingo in November and booked a room for two. There were four of us in the room the entire 4 days. My friend and I stood at the counter to check-in and I had the other 2 guys get lost. I then asked for 4 keys total b/c "we always keep 2 additional keys in the safe at all times"...done and done...never a problem.

    We've also had 3 in a room at the flamingo. We had one guy hang back while we were checking in. We also tipped the maid a couple of bucks a day because they're about the only ones who could turn you in.

    The $20-$30 a night they all want to charge is a little bit on the insane side.

    This assumes you use the maids.

    Three guys... sausage fest... drunken stupors.... well....

    We almost never use maid service. Easier to pick up after ourselves, and keep strangers out of our room. to each their own

    We had one room and four guys. They don't care, when checking in get three. Two for those in the room, and say the third is to keep in the car. Then later ask for an extra key. So all four have keys.

    We have had more than 2 in a room several times and never had an issue. I always ask for at least 1 extra key card whenever I check in to a hotel, even if I am by myself. I have had too may instances where 1 or more of the key cards don't work and it can save a trip back to the front desk.

    Because of this, I don't think they will think anything of them asking for an extra card or 2.

    Just don't tell them. If I'm bringing more than 2 people I check in alone or only bring one friend with me.
