“Great hotel”
Reviewed 5 August 2011

My family of six stayed here in April after all the spring breakers left.We stayed a week and it was great.The pools were clean,my room in the tower was great, the staff was excellent.The location was also great.Couldnt of asked for a better time.Our kids loved it also and are asking when we can go back already.As far as the kitchens it was clean but they could have had a pizza cutter or a can opener in them.It probally did at one time and someone took it or broke it and they didnt even know.I just got new ones at walmart and left them there when we left.All in all it was great....Keep up the good work!!

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.
