Enjoyed our stay immensely. Very clean, very comfortable. Lots of special touches, like plush towels, nice linens, decor and high quality fixtures. Owners very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again when in area.

I was planning to stay at a big chain hotel when this little property's $100 per night rate caught my eye. And we were so glad we chose the Flamingo!
The rooms are decorated with care. Little touches like chocolates each day and plush towels made us feel special. The owner is delightful and is always willing to help.
Finally, you can't beat the location. A short walk takes you to the lake as well as downtown's shops and restaurants.
What a find!

About 30 miles west of Spokane we decided to look for a place to stay in CdA. We looked at all of the chain hotels and stumbled upon The Flamingo. After a quick call, the friendly owners sold us on their last available room, Gone Fishin. Each room has its own unique, well appointed room. Besides having all of the comforts of home, this motel is located right in the middle of town. We walked to have dinner at Crickets and enjoyed an amazing band at the Moose Lounge (all on a Monday night!!!). This mom and pop motel has been completely renovated by the owner (a contractor) and they have done a fantastic job with decorating and have not overlooked any detail. The next time we're in CdA we will definitely stay at the Flamingo.

We picked the Flamingo Motel strictly by chance as we cruised down Sherman Blvd. What a lucky chance it was. This small motel features cozy one of a kind rooms and old-time hospitality. We'll certainly stay here again when we return to Coeur d'Alene!

This was our second visit to The Flamingo Motel-- the first time, taking our daughter out to college in Portland , OR-- this time to attend her college graduation. We had requested the same suite, one with a cabin theme. The heat wasn't working quite right, so Art, the very personable owner, gave us an even better suite- Route 66. We had my 83 year old mother with us and she was thrilled , to say the least, with the place! You will not find a better deal- ANYWHERE!!!!! The place is spotless, the towels are super thick, the decor is beautiful and it is HUGE! Art, the owner, could not be more accommodating, he even provided us with a very good bottle of wine and beautiful glasses. Over and above service! This place is not to be missed if your travels take you near Coeur d' Alene.

We stopped at the Flamingo on an absolute whim and ending up staying two nights in the Cowboy Room. I knew I was going to be happy when I met Art, the owner, and BJ, the cat - and they both extended great hospitality throughout the stay. My wife and I and two teen age girls were comfortable - the rooms were inviting and clean, and the whole experience harkened back to yesteryear where special care and pride is taken in good service. The location as well cannot be beat - within walking distance of downtown and Tubbs Hill and all the good stuff. Highly recommended.

Caveat: This is not the Ritz. If you're looking for a fancy place to stay, this is not it. This is a place of simpler times - a 'motel' in the truest sense of the word. Clean. Comfortable. Down-home goodness.

Plus - for a mere quarter - you get 15 minutes of Magic Fingers. You may not know what this is, especially if you were born after 1970, but I promise you this: bliss. Crazy good. Great place to stay.

Thanks Art and BJ!

Room Tip: Cowboy room, pilgrim.

This small little motel is within walking distance of downtown. Parking is available directly in front of the rooms. Our room was very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable, and we had nice fluffy towels in the bathroom. One of the owners took the time to show us the room before we had to pay. Though the room was a little small, the cost was reasonable. The only negative was the motel is close to the main roadway going into downtown and it was kind of noisy. However, we knew that before deciding to stay there, so overall the experience was excellent.
