Flamingo Motel
Ranked #15 of 48 Hotels in Panama City Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 August 2011

As mentioned in another review, we came to Flamingo after leaving another hotel. The front desk staff were beyond helpful and allowed us to look at several options before paying, all way before normal check-in times. The pool was crowded with lots of happy guests. The garden area was a nice change from standard hotel lay-outs. Definitely worth the upgrade.

Charming. Arrived at the Flamingo on a spontaneous trip to the beach with my six year old granddaughter, we set out on a Thursday morning with no hotel reservations. Our room was a third floor walk-up in the older section overlooking the lush courtyard and pool as well as a great view of the beach. The kitchenette room was spacious and very clean. It had all the amenities (no hair dryer or shampoo) we needed/wanted including free Wifi. The staff were friendly and helpful. The Flamingo is located close to Pier Park. Definitely will come back!

We stayed three nights with four kids(13, 7, 6,4) in the Tower. The room was perfect, just enough room to spread out. Room was clean and fully stocked with towels, toilet paper, and trash bags. No odor whatsoever. A/C - cold. Great view of beach. The pool was also clean and well kept. Beds were comfortable, sleeper sofa not so much, but that is to be expected. We stayed on 2nd floor and had no problem with any noise. Will be back!

My friends and I had a reservation at another motel. When we got there it was horrible and we did not want to stay there. We called the Flamingo and they told us we could look at a room before we payed. They were very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and there was no odor. It is an older motel, but it is kept up well. There are 2 pools and a hot tub outside along with a large deck for sitting. Everything was very clean and I would go back again.

Room Tip: Part of the motel is across the street from the beach. You should ask where your room is located.

We were very disappointed in the flamingo! Our room reeked of cigarette smoke, the carpet was wet in different spots upon arrival. Two of our neighbors stayed up most of the night drinking, cursing, slinging chairs and being very loud. We called and complained and nothing was done about it. When we would walk out of our room day or night, the people would not move out of the way to let us by. One night coming back from dinner, the people would not move out of our way to walk by and my 5 year old son heard one of the drunks ask another if he wanted him to go get his gun. We did not feel safe at all and could not get anything done about it!

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.
