I love these old-school roadside motels that have been loving kept up, and the Flamingo is one of them! Give me some kitschy character over the ticky tacky boxes of chain hotels!
We stayed in the Country Cottage. It came with a small fridge, and two beds sporting the vintage Magic Fingers massagers. It's still a great deal at 25 cents for 15 minutes! Everything was clean and obviously cared for. We felt very welcome and at home!
The motel is off the main drag, so you'll get traffic noise - there's nothing you can do about that. Also, you park right outside of your room, so if your neighbors come home late, you'll will probably hear that.
It's an easy walk to where the action is, and there's a gas station on the corner.
We had a great stay and would very much recommend!

- Like a B&B without the breakfast, all rooms have been remodeled with uniquely different themes. Eight one bed, three two beds & two are 2-bedroom suites (one with a full kitchen). Rooms are all street level with parking in front of each room. Situated within the seven blocks of "old downtown" Coeur d'Alene beside the Lake, all beaches, restaurants & art galleries are within walking and the street fairs, parades, marathons and classic car shows start right out front. ... more less
