“Will Be Back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2011

If you are looking for a 3 or 4 star motel keep looking elsewhere. If you are looking for a clean, friendly, family motel, this is your place. You can tell the Flamingo is an older motel, but the staff does a great job of keeping it clean. The ofice staff is friendly and very helpful. They would answer questions about where to eat, directions, and it was no problem getting extra pillows and towels. The location is great. We walked every day to Pier Park. Late night the area is quiet and a little more peaceful than further down the strip. We stayed in one of the "cabana" rooms. Awesome. Just steps from the white sand and ocean. Since we love to visit the beach, we would rather spend less for a motel that is clean and great location, than spend more for a motel with several hundred guest and have to wait to ride an elevator. If rates stay affordable, we'll be back.

Room Tip: Call the Office for reservations.

My family and I stayed at the Flamingo in the fall of 2010.....couldn't ask for a cleaner, nicer atmosphere.....I even went as far as to recommend this place to friends. BUT, we stayed again June 2011. Boy, what a difference. The location is good, the service and staff is fine, but our room was such a disappointment. The room was very unkept......bedspreads completely worn out with cigarette burns, the carpet felt sticky, the drop ceiling tiles had mildew, the bathroom door facing was rusted out and the bath tub water ran constantly whenever anyone was showering. For the money spent on this week long stay at the Flamingo Motel, we could've rented a condo. I would not recommend this place to anyone after this stay. I won't stay at the Flamingo again.

Renovations and improvements are ongoing at the Flamingo and though not every room has been completed, we expect the new carpet and bedspreads to be installed in all needed rooms by the end of the summer. Come see us and check out the improvements going on all around the Flamingo.

I had read some good reviews on the Flamingo and decided to give it a try.....RUN FOREST RUN. Chairs were stained, couch was stained, carpet left your feet dirty. The only cooking utensil was a large knife. Towels were hard and scratchy. And the NOISE!! We had neighbors sitting outside the doors til 3:00 in the morning and we could hear everything. They were laughing and drinking. The street noise was horrible too. Motorcycles, loud trucks. Both pools were cloudy and crowded by noon each day. Front Beach Road is not for a FAMILY vacation. I will stay on Thomas Drive from now on.

If the family wouldn't have been so tired from a 10 day trip to Disney then a 6 hour drive there, this would have been one of those look at & walk outs! The plus to this was a clean room, and great view. That is as far as I'd go. Upon checking in my 5 year old noticed some money on the floor, the ladt checking it in goes oh it must be (some womans name) funny thing was is that there were two guys standing infront of us. I handed her the money (had I not been so worn out & if I were thinking I would have told her to tell her to come find me & tell me how much it was she lost. Because we all now the lady put i t in her own pocket!!! The pool was cloudy when we were there. it too me just looked like it has survived a few hurricanes with the min. amount of repair done to it to pass code. If you like dark & quite forget it. You hear all the road noise, honking horns, drunks, you name it through your door that doesn't even seal all the way, yeah you can see daylight through the edges of the door. They even had dryer sheets stuck in the AC to make the room smell clean. No dryer, no clock, no soap, conditioner, lotion, oh yeah if you leave dirty dishes you'll be charged 25 dollars to clean up.....You can stay better & nicer for 149/night at other hotels and have what I listed above for free. And if you want ice that is a 1.75/bag too...I never have had to pay for ice from a motel!!!! No wifi either, do to an electrical storm????

Room Tip: Go somewhere ELSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We look forward to improving and thank you for your feedback. We are family owned and operated for 32 years and many of our staff team members have been with us for 2 decades or more. Each room is provided with soap and as many towels as you need during your stay. Additional toiletries as well as hairdryers and irons are available upon request from the front office. The front office also offers free coffee and cappuccino. Being a beachfront property, we know you may need ice for your coolers, so we provide bagged ice at our cost for all guests.

I have 4 children from 4 years old to 14 and we all stayed in a first floor tower room with queen beds and a pull out sofa. Check in was quick and easy and checkout was even easier. Room service came by every day to offer their services and was very friendly. The Flamingo was cheaper than most of the other big name hotels. So, we were able to enjoy alot of other activities that we would of otherwise had the money for. I loved the soft beds and the clean room. Planning another trip as we speak. A great place to stay on a family oriented side of the beach. Front beach is for families and Thomas drive is for the younger single crowd!

Room Tip: Beachside tower is best..

The Flamingo Motel was awesome. The rooms were very clean and the staff was very friendly. It was great to see Dana and her father who are the owners walking around checking on the motel and visiting with guest. It is worth the price of the room as opposed to paying more and getting less of a family atmosphere. Big condos big prices NO friendly faces. It was pleasure to stay at the Flamingo Motel and look forward to going back to see our friends. We love it and the location is great walking distance to good resturants and Pier Park. Clean beach and pool.

Room Tip: Cabana rooms are the best ! Right on the beach.

You get what you pay for! Its not a very expensive motel but if you are looking for a decent place to stay that is oceanfront this is the place! Great pool & view was awesome! All staff was very friendly and helpful! Only bad thing I can say is elevator in the tower is slow and hot. My family has stayed here numerous times.

Room Tip: Love the Cabana & Tower rooms!
