We were very lucky to book this motel. we would have preferred 2 nights but due to a plant shutdown the town was totally booked up. This motel deserves all the praise I have seen online. It is spotless, has all usual motel amenities. We got a 2 bed option which ended up being 1 bed in a front room and another bed in a separate room. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. It's true that muffins mysteriously appear in the evening. Highly recommend. Great as a central point for visiting Castlegar and Trail and Rossland and of course Nelson. Restaurants and shopping close by.

Hi Guys. Thank you for the great review. When you folks "Magically Appeared" here, we only had a room for you for one night. Sorry - It would have been nice if you could have stayed longer. Yup, we just have the 6 suites. Debra and I prefer this, it's far easier to keep on top of quality control. And we can get to know our guests a little better. Like you folks and your interesting work. Stop by next time you are in the area :-)
Best regards,
Frank and Debra

Choose this place based on trip advisor reviews. We just needed a place to sleep- wanted simple, clean & affordable. That's what we got. The quilt was homemade -nice touch. Owners are really nice and we felt happy to give them our $.

Hi project78. Thanks so much for your great review. It was pleasure meeting you. A nice drive from Edmonton. The only suite that we had left for you was our smallest suite which you folks settled into with nary a peep :-) We didn't get to check with you the next morning, just saw your tail lights at that early hour - early risers! We are pleased that you were comfy and very much look forward to the next time that we can welcome you to the Flamingo Motel, Castlegar..
Warmest regards,

This motel was perfect for us, with its large lounge/dining/kitchen and separate bedroom & bathroom. Everything was very clean, and Frank & Debra were incredibly friendly and helpful, even providing us with large pot for us to cook our soup for 4. Everything else we needed was in the room. It was also only 3 minutes walk to Safeway.
Because it was so spacious, 4 of us sat around the table eating in comfort.
We throughly endorse this motels rating as Castlegar's number 1 place to stay, and if we ever return from Australia, we will stay here again in a heartbeat.

Well. What can I say. We were hit here by a whirlwind of Ozzy's. What a night! We so much enjoyed visiting with you folks. Gary had his stuff packed - he was going with you. He still watches at the window for you. We gotta get a boat. A big one. One that can carry my blue car [don't want it falling over the side tho].We'll sail to meet you. Thanks so much for the great review, and for staying with us. We sure hope that you will stop here again. Aa’ i’sul nora lanne’lle.

Arrived and was greeted by Debra and Rico, (he's a dog). Was shown to and around my room. The next evening I arrived back to the room to discover some lovely baked strudel. Frank and Debra were very helpful in directing me about town and where inquisitive as to the reason for my visit. The rooms were very clean, neat and tidy.

Thanks to Frank, Debra, Rico and the staff at The Flamingo Motel

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the flamingo. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms for a night, and though the bed was a little stiff for my liking I would certainly come back again. The price was minimal, the owner was very friendly and helpful and even brought us muffins for the morning since we had to leave early the next day.
