“Pleasantly suprised...”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

My boyfriend and I booked a last minute weekend trip to Fort Myers Beach, FL. Rooms at this time were not only at a premium but, sold out (beginning of spring break, spring training, etc)! I must have came across a cancellation at the Flamingo, luckily because I wanted to stay on Fort Myers. This little gem of a hotel is located a hop, skip & jump away from the beach. Loved that the offered free beach chairs and beach towels too... the rooms were far better than I had expected for the price, little kitchen area with a stove, frig, dishes, table, nice bathroom. It does not have central AC so for those that want to be freezing in the room, it's not going to happen, they do have a window unit, which for me, was perfect, I hate being cold (I traveled from the cold north east, do not need anymore cold!) ...the woman at the front desk, Bettina was very friendly and welcoming. We'd definitely stay her again. Oh and their prices, in comparison the rest of the island, lower than everyone else too...great value for the money.

We stayed in a studio apartment, they have other types of rooms. The room was really VERY nice. Fresh looking paint with no flaws or or other problems. Everything inside was good quality and new looking.
The only negative was that this place was truly small. The nice Queen bed dominated the floor space with the large dresser (TV on top) and a small kitchen table with 2 chairs taking up the other available space. The kitchen area was also small and the bathroom was about the same size as what we have seen on a cruise ship.
The location is very quiet and only a short walk down to the beach. They will loan a beach umbrella and lawn type chairs to take to the beach. This was nice, because the busier end of the beach has umbrella and chair rentals which are not a bargain.

Room Tip: This is a small place with not very many rooms. I don't think the location makes any difference...

It's not the location, although "on the beach" is amazing; it's not the prices or level of comfort, although these were truly amazing.......it's the staff and the owner who showed genuine warmth and exemplary customer service they makes this hotel special.

Just returned from Florida yesterday. They had a problem with our reservation. The first night we stayed at the Flamingo but we were informed the next day that there was no room available for us. After several calls we were given a room at the other end of the island for four nights and once again moved back to The Flamingo for the last two nights. So in a one weeks vacation we moved three times. Beware of this hotel!!

This hotel needs some work. We were disappointed in the cleanliness. Everyday they had someone come to "clean," but would only take the garbage and bring new towels. They did not sweep/wash floor or even make our bed, let alone change the sheets! The bed was horrible, the only good thing about the room was the shower. The location is great for the beach and they provide towels/old chairs. Loved Fort Myers Beach, but would not recommend this place due to their lack of up keep.

Literally seconds from the beach, these modest rooms service well for the no thrills vacation. Friendly staff & clean rooms will make your stay a cozy one. The rooms are small and provide only the basics: bed, night table, dresser, closet, microwave, mini fridge, and shower. The location is away from the busy and noisy north end. However, we enjoyed renting a bike to tour the north beach, pier, & time square; a trolley is also available. 7/11 within walking distance for a morning coffee. Also, within walking distance to Charlie's boathouse for a fine dinner or to the dinner movie theater were you can watch a box office hit while enjoying a freshly made entree. Free parking at the hotel, however the wifi is weak and the TV is small...but you are going to enjoy the beach, right?

Room Tip: Room 216 has its own deck & is a corner suite on the back side.
