Clearwater, Florida
Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Been a bit Since my last stay, pretty impressed with the upgrades, rooms look great I had one minor maintenance issue which was corrected quickly. One hard working handsome young man "SHAUN" went above and beyond to make my stay more comfortable. Always a good time, always return.

A great motel if you are looking to be surrounded by old, gay, gitchy-ness. After reading reviews, my husband and I decided to give it a try with the thinking it would add to the casual experience of saint petersburg as well as being able to support a gay owned and operated business. We knew we would be getting what...

We've been coming to Flamingo Resort since it opened in 2009. The renovations took time but we are very happy to see how great the whole place looks. Our room (in Heather's section) is so clean (in big contrast to last year's stay at the Parliment House/Orlando, where the floors were dirty and room dark.) The staff are well-organized and...

Like many of the aging old motels across the country, this one is in sad shape. It is an old gay oriented resort in need of so many improvements. They obviously try, as the pool is maintained, they have a nice cabana bar with friendly staff, there are shops on location, even a barber shop on the property. There are...

A group of us stayed here recently, and although the service was good and the bartenders were all very nice, our room had old, worn down furniture, the floor was dirty, and the place could really use some updates and improvements. The pool area is nice, but I would not recommend staying here in the winter if you are hoping...

While the social aspects of the resort get a big thumbs up and the staff is attentive and friendly, the rooms are in dire need of updating. Pool is beautiful, Sunday tea dance draws a great crowd and the on-site kitchen puts out tasty, yet simple meals. The pricing for rooms, drinks and food is a bargain compared to other...

I was visiting relatives in St Pete and snuck away to of the flamingo hotel bar.

So the prices are such that I didn't expect the Hilton. Pet friendly rooms of course are not expected to be pristine. I have stayed at the Flamingo before so I know what to reasonably expect a ("Gay") resort with cruising traffic to be like, however the "pet friendly" rooms are just plain nasty. Broken glass on the room floor,...

“Punched by a pattren Sunday August 21, 2016 at the Flamingo Hoel”

1 of 5 stars Pending review

Yesterday, I came to the Flamingo Hotel for tea dance like I do most Sundays. I happened to be using the waterslide the hotel had set up. After getting out of the pool to go down the slid again, there was a guy with his "leather toy boy" in toe. Deck was wet and I lost my footing a bit and brushed against the "boy toy". Apologized and commented on his looks. Well his "master" didn't take lightly to it and cold cocked me in the chest.

I immediately went into the Code Bar and asked for security. When no one came I walked outside and saw the "young lady" security guard talking to the guy who hit me. At this point I became outraged and went to the front desk and asked them to call the police. While waiting for the police to come the General Manager, Randy, was called. While waiting for the police I was calling my bank because my debit card was stolen. Randy was trying to interrupt me while I was on the phone with the bank. At this point I was beyond upset. He kept telling me to sit down. I told him I was calling my bank and waiting for the police. He then told me to leave the property.

I was the one struck by his other pattern and I was told to leave. I walked out to the side walk and waited for the police. Four scout cars arrived. One officier took my information and the other ones went and talked with Randy the so called inept manager. I was given a trespassing paper stating I was not allowed back on the property. BE AWAIRE THAT IF YOU GET PUNCHED IN THE CHEST BY A SO CALLED "MASTER" IT'S OK.

I tried calling the hotel back several times to get the owner's name. The desk clerk was upright RUDE!! He wouldn't give me the information.

I asked if it was always allowed to have their guest's "gay bashed". His response was, "how can you be gay bashed at a gay hotel". I wonder how far this guy got through school to have that type of answer.

I already called Channel 10 news and told them what happened. They requested I email them what happened and they would contact me right away.

I have already contacted my attorney and plan to take full legal action against the flamingo resort and the person that hit me.
