Tricia,
Just to put your mind at ease about the Flamingo, I wanted to tell you about my stay there. I just returned last night from 3 days in the Flamingo. We booked it through hoteldiscount.com and paid something like $400 for 3 nights (but it was probably more expensive because it was the basketball tournament and also St. Patrick's day). Anyway, we got in at about 9:00 PM. When we were checking in, the agent said would you prefer a smoking or non-smoking room. I said "actually, I've heard that some of the rooms here have been renovated recently - I'd really prefer one of those if I could." She looked in her computer and gave us what she called an upgrade, to the 25th floor, view of the strip. It was extremely nice and new looking. Everything was clean and just very nice. And, we even had a great view of the Bellagio fountain/light show every night! Although it was too chilly for the pool, we did walk around the area and they have 3 pools including a kids pool and a giant water slide. I think you and your kids will be very happy there. Just ask for one of the newly renovated rooms and you won't go wrong!

Thanks much for your insight Dale.
I'm glad to hear the good review of the Flamingo.
My family is staying there 3 nights, the fist week of July. I know, I know, July will be very hot. We're yankees from the north, but have been told not to worry, since it's a "dry heat". Ha, ha. Vegas breaks up our 2 week trip throughout Utah & Arizona. (Must admit, kids are mostly looking forward to Vegas.) First trip for us all.
Thereuare: I checked out those websites you listed above. Thank you again!
I love this site ~ it has been such a big help in planning our trip.

I agree with those who said stay out of Circus Circus - what a dump. The Excalibur should be fun for your little ones. MGM is a great family place but we find it extremely hard to locate exits (frankly, I preferred it before the remodeling of the entrance). Flamingo is okay. Our room was nice with a view of the garden. Maybe the Sahara would be a good place. Make sure you enjoy the buffets at Aladdin and Mandalay Bay.
