“best motel in idaho”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

we just stayed there on feb 26th 2012 we loved it they were very friendly and helpful when we had questions, we were taken on a tour and showed the the different rooms then we got to choose the room we wanted, we stayed in the The Emerald Isle room and felt so at home it was cozy and the bed was so soft with clean sheets no stains. there is a greeter cat there named beejay who is friendly and loves to be peted and given lots of love, he will come in your room if you invite him and and lay on the bed and let you pet him all night, we plan to stay there again and will be telling eveyone if they are looking for a great motel with awsome rates to stay at this hotel

As per previous reviewers- we found the proprietors to be friendly and outreaching...Booked by phone, sight unseen and before we were committed to a certain room.. we were given the tour of all of them.. Chose the golfing room -based on the 2 bed and arrangement configuration.. Room was well appointed with all the ammenities..clean and fresh.Very comfy for sitting around .Inherent in the location is the fact that there is a lot of street noise-...traffic, road sweeper, dumpster emptying etc. This particular room could benefit from black out drapes as the plantation shutter shade cannot keep out the light from the dual street lights...Street noise in this room also comes thru the air conditioner unit..Lastly- the proprietor's meowing cat that others speak of...needed to be chased off our front porch several times in the evening.. and again for trying to get out of the rain and into our room while packing out in the am. If I was traveling with a pet that was totally forbidden in the room, it would go against my grain to "share" the local pet. High marks for friendly.. and location..but not for a good night sleep..

Every room has been redecorated in various themes. We chose the Tuscan room, which for winter, was inviting. The theme details were perfect, soft towels and sheets, nice tub, newer fixtures and very clean. It was hard to imagine what might have been a cheap motel at one time, be so elegantly remodeled. And the lobby is filled with information about the area. This was our Christmas trip and we walked to town, past splendid window displays and the town was dressed to the nines for the season.

Room Tip: View their list of themed rooms and pick your favorite.

We stayed at this great motel..... Girls' weekend.. The place was absolutely spotless. Very cozy. The location is perfect. You can walk downtown and to the lakefront.
The staff was so friendly and helpful. Suggested restaurants etc.
We are planning another trip this coming summer and have already made plans to stay here.

Stayed at this motel with my wife in August. Very freindly owner, has a senior discounted if you qualify. Each room has a different theme to it that wasn't over done. It was very clean and only a few short blocks to the downtown or beach. A very nice place to stay , I would definetly stay there again as I have been there about 3 times already when traveling thru the area.

A co-worker recommended the Flamingo Motel to us, and I'm grateful she did. We only stayed one night but we were very impressed with the room. We stayed in the Tuscany room. Very cozy and clean. I liked that we parked right in front of our room. It is also close to downtown which made it easy to walk to the lake as well as a variety of shops and restaurants. We'll definately stay there again.

Room Tip: Might want to choose a room that isn't facing Sherman Avenue as it might be a bit more noisy tha...

I would definitely stay here again. My girlfriend and I were driving through and came upon this place. They let us look in the rooms and choose whichever one we wanted. They had a nice selection of DVD's we could watch while staying there. I would definitely recommend staying if you're in the area and looking for an excellent place to stay.
