On an impulse beach weekend, we picked up one of those rest-stop hotel coupon books, and saw $44 at Flamingo. My husband, the neat freak, just knew it must be a dump. The nice front desk lady gave him keys to the 3 types of rooms that were available and told him to choose. The newer, nicer tower rooms were full. The older rooms were, well...older. They were all clean and beachside, just dated. If you're looking for upscale, go to the high-rise condos and share the pool and a few yards of beach with maybe a couple thousand people. This place was sweet. We shared a balcony with a snowbird couple that played Yahtzee. Everyone was so friendly. There was a Pot-luck dinner on the deck by the pool. With our street-side window open in the morning, we could hear the seals at GulfWorld across the street at their feeding time. The cabana rooms are right on the sand. We had Wi-fi. It's really close to Pier Park. It was a lovely trip.
