    Which other CET properties have you enjoyed? The Ballys crowd is a bit older. Depends on what you are looking for

    Which ones did you like most and why?

    Where do you tend to play?

    What sort of rates are you seeing for your dates?

    I had a really bad experience at Flamingo last November. We had to change rooms 3 times before we got a decent clean room. The manager we dealt with was named Chris and he was super rude.

    In all the times I've been to Vegas I have never had such a poor experience. Never again.

    Interesting...

    We have stayed at Ballys more than any other resort in Vegas. We tried Flamingo GO room 2 years ago...room was fine. Cool mod decor, fridge, strip view, if a bit small. But we had hallway cleanliness issues. Something disgusting smeared on elevator button cover (Something about Mary kept coming to mind...I'm sure it was just ice cream...:vomit:)...down the hall it looked like someone took a box of crackers, walked on it, then opened it & tossed it all over the hall. Buttons NEVER were cleaned in 4 days...carpet took a couple (I REALLY didn't get that one...the maids would have had to drive their carts over it??!!) Even DH was a bit disgusted. So haven't rushed to stay there again...

    I have stayed at both Flamingo and Bally's. I liked both. I liked Ballys because it was easy to walk to Paris and Planet Ho. Rooms at Ballys were big but decor was a little older, Both properties clean and would stay at both again.

    Having stayes at both multiple times I'd probably pick Ballys. Flamingo is ok but cleanliness is really becoming an issue there.

    Ive stayed at both 2 times each. If you enjoy a quieter pool Id pick Bally's. I would actually pick Flamingo due to all their rooms are now remodeled I believe. They dont even allow you to chose the old style rooms anymore when you book.

    The basic Flamingo room however is 350sq ft when the North Tower rooms at Ballys are pushing 500sq feet...also something to think about.
