We came in there were spiders EVERYWHERE. they had a used band aid on the flour, they had DIRTY SHEETS AND HAIR ON THE TOWELS. this is... More

The "2 room" place that we rented was really the size of a standard 2 double bed motel room, with a thin wall added around one of the double beds for some privacy. The owners / reception people were very friendly and we had no issues, but the harvest gold fridge and stove and the 20" CRT TV give you... More

We stayed at the motel July 2013 for 6 nights. We arrived one night early and the owners were very accommodating to fit us in! The room was dated, but clean and had everything we needed! We stayed in a room with one queen bed, kitchen and pull out couch. The couch bed was ok for comfort, and the queen... More

Sorry but that's just the way it is. We spent six days here recently and that's our last. Yes the place... More

My daughter and I were driving back from Vancouver and everything in Kelowna was full. We decided to stop in Penticton and booked the Flamingo at the last minute, knowing from the reviews it was budget but should serve the purpose. Its a good location - not close to the water but you can drive there easily. The pool there... More

We had the apartment suite and were impressed at how large it was. It was a little dated but was very clean and comfortable. The AC worked very well. Pool and BBQ areas were very well maintained. The owners were nice and chatty. It is only 5min from the south beach and is within walking distance of a mall. Nice... More

"We have stayed at the Flamingo Motel four times so far and plan to be there again next year. It's a small and quiet motel which is exactly what I look for when I leave the city and go on a vacation. The service is always impeccable. We feel like we are part of their (the owners) family whenever we... More

Stayed here only one night but it was a basic, clean and super friendly motel. The 'pool in the parking lot' was spotless!! If you're looking for a great place to lay your head for a night or 2 this is a great place.
