We just got home today! Spent two nights there and LOVED the place. We walked in on Sunday afternoon and asked for a room that would sleep 5. She told us to go take a look at a room that she could give to us for a few dollars cheaper than a tower room. Snagged it!!!! The room was all we needed. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and smelled good. The 2 pools were great. The motel pool is shaded most of the day which is wonderful when you have had enough sun but still want to swim and the tower pool was great for the younger folks. Going again soon and will stay here time and time again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A variety of room options with affordable rates make this family run hotel a great value for beach front prime property. Most rooms are oceanfront, with a budget priced set of rooms across the highway. The property is well maintained, and parking is adequate. The wall around the beach shower could use some attention, but overall for its age the facility is in good shape. This is not a new high rise, brass and glass place, but a rambling stucco Florida beach motel. We stayed in a tower room - 2 queen beds, an alcove with bathroom on one side and kitchen facilities on the other, and a living room with a queen sleeper opening out to a balcony with a spectacular view of the gulf and the pool. The kitchen was furnished with a four burner stove, and a full size refrigerator. Basic dishes and pans were provided. The room was very clean - fans were dusted, windowsills were clean, all bedding fresh and bathroom and kitchen spotless. Two a/c units and two tvs were in the unit. The pool was nice and beachfront area spectacular. Pier Park is within walking distance ( maybe not with small children) about 1/2 mile. Pool toys were provided in one of the pools. The price was unbeatable, $80 a night. This would fluctuate according to demand as with most Panama City Beach hotels . We hope to go back and stay in a beachfront cabana with our granddaughter.

Just got back from a wonderful stay at the Flamingo Motel. Have to say best place on the beach. We have stayed other places along the strip and none of them have the quaintess and family oriented feel of the Flamingo. Their staff is always willing to help or greet you with a "good morning"... the coffee in the lobby was a great surprise. If you have ever questioned staying at a family place this is the place to put your fears to rest. We loved the fact that you could just sit by the pool and not worry whether our daughter would be ok in the pool. We could sit right there and see her.... The tower units, a must, are very well kept and the housekeeper on our floor (4th) was just as nice and welcoming. We have stayed at chain hotels other places and this is the only place that knew our name. Def recommend this to a family looking for affordable comfort. LOVE THE FLAMINGO!!!!

We just returned from another great vacation at our home away from home.. aka... The Flamingo Motel. We have been staying here for the last 3 years and love it. You don't find too many places anymore who know you and appreciate your business. The owners do a great job of keeping the place up. It's very rare to find a place family owned and not have to fight the crowds of a condo. Pools are always clean and we love the Tower because of the private balconies... a must if you gonna stay.... short walking distance to Pier Park (love) and a quick car ride to most of the places along the strip. Would def recommend this place for anyone who just needs a break from the hustle and wants to sit back relax and enjoy the sun.... can't wait to come back in the fall!!!

Flamingo is one of the cheaper hotels left on Panama City Beach.
Right on the water, walking distance to most attractions.
POOR rooms - dated, molding, falling apart appliances.
Average - Poor pools.
BUT, I keep returning (3rd time guest) because of the price.
Besides, you go to Florida FOR THE BEACH.. so sleep there... it'll be better than the room.
