Both Frank and Debra were very friendly and helpful--eager to make our stay the best it could be. The rooms are not fancy, but very clean and comfortable, the beds were covered with homemade quilts, and we would return to homemade muffins each evening. The Flamingo was recommended to us by a relative who had stayed there the summer before... More

We were stranded in Castlegar due to flight being cancelled. Luckily the Flamingo had room for us! The rooms are cute and very clean. Owners are super friendly. The hotel is in a great location close to lots of restaurants, stores and the movie theatre.

We made a last minute booking on New Year's Eve, and were so glad we chose the Flamingo. It cost HALF of what the Sandman was asking, and we got twice as much room! We stayed in #5, a suite with full fridge & stove, as well as everything we could need - kettle, toaster, dishes, a TV in the... More

This was a lovely motel beautifully clean and well run. The rooms were really small suites and one of the owners made great muffins for breakfast! The motel is located centrally in Castlegar. Altogether a great town to visit and an excellent place to stay!

We needed an overnight stay in Castlegar to catch a morning flight weather permitting. The Flamingo was perfect. And it is not just the location. Our room, #2, was perfect. The place was absolutely clean. The bed is comfortable decorated with very warm quilted bedspreads. Frank was a congenial fellow making sure the room met our needs by giving us... More

I stay here whenever I'm working out of the Southeast Fire Centre and that has been going on for the last 6 years. Nice clean rooms with full kitchens. Deb and Frank are great hosts especially when Frank shows up in the evening with fresh muffins. In season you even get to raid the cherry tree. For me it's definitely... More

We are on a three month trip 'round the perimeter and up into Canada, avoiding the Interstates and chain hotels, getting to know some lesser known places. At this point, we've stayed at 20 or 30 places: camping cabins to off-season resort hotels. The Flamingo is just the kind of place we always hope to find: small, homey, and friendly.... More
