I have been going to the Car D'Alene Car show and Collector Car Auction for approximately 20 years. For the first few years I stayed at other motels / hotels. About 15 years ago I tried the Flamingo. I have stayed there every year since. It's right on the main drag ( Sherman Ave ) and easy to get to and from. Lots of restaurants,bars, and shopping within walking distance. Art and Shelly Williams are the best hosts ever !! They are extremely gracious and accommodating. They both go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable and fun. The rooms are fun also, as each has a different theme and as an extra bonus most of the beds have 'Magic Fingers' vibration so bring a roll of quarters with you. The rooms are very clean and well updated. Whenever I stay in CDA I always pick the Flamingo.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
